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.

I traded a seedot for 7 ultra rares. So, this girl really liked seedot because she said the pokemon was so cute, and she had the most ultra rares so i traded the seedot for 5 secret rare megas and 2 Gx cards. She even said that if i trade her a Pichu she might give me her pokemon binder full with ultra rares, and her brother's full art trainers and Gx cards. What luck!
Scarlett Castro (7 months ago)
By the way the Gx cards were Tapu koko and Kommo-o Gx Secret rare Megas Mega Manetric Ex secret rare Mega Sceptile Ex secret rare Mega Lucario Ex secret rare Gyarados Ex secret rare full art Mega Beedrill Ex secret rare Primal Kyogre Ex

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

How to trade the TCG known as Pokémon like a PLAYA!!! Or a PIMP!!! STEP 1. Go to your friend or random hobo on the street (your choice) and ask to see their cards then... STEP 2. Ask them if they want to trade... STEP 3. Pick the card you like... STEP 4. See if they like any of your cards... STEP 5. Confront them and say ooh you like that card... STEP 6. AGREE ON A TRADE( or just shank him 74 times in the chest) (Again your choice) STEP 7. ( Make the trade where both leaving with a new card(s)... STEP 8. Subcribe to this Youtube account or all your Pokémon are gonna be replaced of a picture of your bootyhole (UNWIPED) And BAD LUCK FOR EVER... DUN DUN DUN And this took me forever...

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.

Why does this video exist. Trading is in the name of pokemon “Trading Card Game” You trade your pokemon for someone else’s pokemon. It’s not that hard.

Mr.Jankson (9 months ago)
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.

I used to play in the ghetto and players would put there most valuable card on the line. If you won, you got the card that was put for bet. Sometimes we would brawl at the end. Haha good times

Trade pokemon cards with little kids. Got it
[Last_Stand] (1 year ago)
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.

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 😁👍

By 10-12 seconds into the video, you state that the goal is to show us how to play pokemon. But the title of the video indicates that it is about trading cards, not playing the game. ??
