Learn how to trade Pokemon cards from the Pokemon Trading Card Game pros at Comic Cafe in this Howcast video.
Hi, I'm Joe D'Andrea, a Pokemon professor at Comic Cafe in Warren New Jersey, and we're here to show you how to play the Pokemon trading card game.
So more often than not, if you're trading Pokemon cards — after all it's a trading card game — you're going to trade cards for cards. Now you don't have to trade the same card for the same card, of course, because that's rather silly. Instead you want to trade cards of similar value, and again this is a value you both agree to before the trade takes place. When you're looking at cards to trade, look for signs of mintness, how new is the card? Of course, if it's just come out of the pack, and you saw them take it out, then you know it's brand new. Things to look for, though, would be like frayed edges that might tell that your card has been played a lot. If the edges are white, they may have been taped on the table a bit. If it's a bit flimsy or if it's even bent, all of these things lower the value of the card. If you're trading in a league, you should check with your league leader first to make sure it's a good trade, and second to have them look at the trade to see if it's a fair one. Do not be pressured into making a trade you do not want to make, and always be polite and respectful with your fellow trader. Giving up your cards is never a consequence of winning or losing at a Pokemon trading card game, be it league or tournament.
Also make sure they're not fake cards. If not sure then look at the yellow edges and if they are symmetrical, look at the back make sure the blue isn't lighter or a darker shade of blue then the original cards. And if it's not even a real Pokémon that should be obvious lol

Mention counterfeits. Mention then so people don't get scammed into counterfeits. Mention sets and rarity. Mention how common cards from old limited edition sets might scale up to somewhat rare cards from current sets.

masterball 11 Rainbow Rare Charizard. One of the rarest cards in one of the sets you got it from. That's worth more than $80 I think. Search it up and maybe sell it for serious cash or trade it for some cards of similar value you want.
Well, there's more to it, and this is also for anyone new to any TCG (pokemon specifically has children, which means they definitely won't know). You didn't watch the video and/or you don't know the basic etiquette of trading, if someone is offering a 2 dollar card for your 100 dollar card, it is not a fair trade regardless of the situation, and the smart thing to do is to NOT trade.

1. See a person with Megas/Ultras
2. WHACK EM' OUT OF THEIR HAND
3. Run awaaaaaaaay!!!

I bet some of these kids in the comments section don’t even know how to properly take care of a card, much less know how to even play the game. Here’s a heads up, if you have or “stole” an ultra rare card it’s most likely in shit condition. Bent, scratches on the back, chips on the side. Yeah you may have an ultra rare, but if it’s in shit condition a smart person wouldn’t even trade you for it or even try to buy it off you. If you’re smart once you get an ultra rare card from a booster pack (instead of stealing one that’s most likely in shit condition) you’d double sleeve it to prevent scratching and chips. Also if you’re looking on how to actually play the game just try going to your local Pokémon league, I’d also suggest trying to play the Pokémon online trading card game. Those code cards from booster packs aren’t just for show. Another tip, try looking at some Pokémon decks being played in tournaments (just YouTube search it). And yeah your friend maybe offering you an ultra rare or someone you know has one, but if nobody is using it in any deck in the trading card game it’s a shit ultra rare. But even shitty ultra rares are worth 5 dollars. Most popular ultra rare in the tcg right now in my opinion is Tapu Lele GX. If you happen to have a hyper rare Tapu Lele GX you’re looking at 100 dollars worth of value. That card is worth a lot of money.
in my school this kid had a mega pidgeot ex full art and a stack of like 40 cards so he gave me like 7 cards when he wasnt looking i took the mega pidgeot ex fa gyrados holo and mewtwo holo but i traded mega pidgeot ex fa for dialga ex cuz pigeot was all bent and ripped a lil so then i traded the holos for like 30 cards each to some dumb kids
So this one guy had a (REAL) base set holo charizard from 1995 and he was a noob at pokemon and somehow got that card. So I told him that it was fake and only worth like three bucks and i gave him a non holo zapdos for it and he was happy not
Knowing he had been ripped off, and now I have that card in my collection 😁👍
After partnering with Wirex, the company was able to add XRP token support to its Visa card. Subsequently, the number of sign-ups and transactions on the platform had a considerable boost.
The very fine qualities of XRP continue to pull users and firms towards itself with the latest addition of Bitcoin Superstore. Earlier this year, Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple said the only way of XRP decoupling from Bitcoin influence is through mass adoption.
This movement has supported the saying that the token has more utility than predicted and in fact the firm pushed up ahead and donated millions for humanitarian causes and charity. The first feedback was not that big, however judging from the most recent development Ripple is enjoying the last piece of the cake.
With the above announcement by Bitcoin Superstore via their twitter handle, users can almost in an instant complete settlements with XRP while purchasing from different retail outlets. These outlets being the leading ones like eBay, Amazon and others. If you choose to go for this option remember that XRP in the past has given out results of being cheap for both the merchant offering to accept the token and the user.
Or, even shorter, build a massive, level playing field in which assets can compete to bridge payments, then try to make XRP a winner on that playing field.
This is an ambitious, maybe even crazy, plan. But Ripple has raised tens of millions of dollars, has over a hundred full time employees, and our successes to date speak for themselves. That is, of course, no guarantee of success.
