Q: Are these errors on just the cards you have, or on ALL the same cards?
Nick15 Sez: Yes, these errors can be found on just about all of the same card. As in if you opened up a fresh pack of cards and found one of the cards listed on this error list, it'll have that error on it. (Unless Wizards changed them since they were first released.)
found an error where the attack damage is off
Nick15 Sez: I probably have too. A card error where
something is off center or mis-sized is probably the most
common one. However I'm not going to bother with adding a
minor error like a moved Damage Done number or something,
unless it sticks out like a sore thumb.
Q: I have a
card error where the border is thicker and thinner on one
Nick15 sez: Technically, that's not the kind of error I'm
looking for. Those sorts of errors are done on a
production level, say that sheets of cards weren't cut
the right way, or a layer of color wasn't added while
printing, etc. The only reason why I don't accept those
is because EVERY card has the potential to have those
sorts of errors on them, and I don't have the time nor
the patience to include scans of errored card like that.
Q: I've got
the same card as one of your error cards, but the error
isn't on them!
Nick15 sez: Some cards may have had their errors fixed
after Wizards noticed them. Some examples include the
Length-Length Caterpie/Bulbasaur, and the Tipsy-Turvy
Energy symbol on Diglett.
with the horrible puns for titles?
Nick15 sez: Just to make it interesting. (^_^) I mean
it's quite funny thinking about the title "Fighting Fire
With Fire", when it turns out that Blaine's Charizard has
a Fighting symbol instead of a Fire symbol. Heh.... heh?
Q: I have two
Ponyta cards; one has a shadow and thick HP and the other
doesn't have a shadow and has a thin HP. What
Nick15 sez: Half way down the road, Wizards decided to
change the card's layout. As first they made the
non-shadowed version. Then later came the shadowed
version, which we all have come to know and love. This
isn't an error.
Q: Hey, Neo
Genesis' Murkrow's attack is mispelt. Why isn't it on
Nick15 sez: Actually, it's NOT an error. The card
designers made it "Feint" attack on purpose.
Q: Yeah, but
the Game Boy game attack name is different! I hate
Nick15 Sez: In the Game Boy game, it's Faint Attack. In
the TCG, it's Feint Attack. The difference? Simple. Think
of them as two totally different attacks, which by an
amazing considence, sound alike. One again, this is an
example of how you really can't use the Game Boy game to
determine what's right or wrong with the TCG. In this
case, what may seem like a misspelling is in fact a
totally different attack. .... Besides, I've said this
once, and I'll say it again.... "A rose by any other name
would smell just as sweet (William Shakespeare)". Who
gives a Rattata's arse about weither it's Faint or Feint?
It'll still do the same thing even if it was called "Kaka
Q: What about
Snubbull's Roar attack error and Rocket's Scyther's
Nick15 sez: Those aren't errors, just ruling additions.
Ruling additions are there just incase someone has a
question on it, and that question can be answered by just
looking at the card and not having to ask anyone for the
answer. .... In the case of those two cards, Snubbull's
Roar attack has that added "Do damage before switching"
just incase that attack would ever do damage, and
Rocket's Scyther would lose the effect of attack just
incase if there was ever a Rocket's Scizor ever made.
Rocket's Scyther MUST have an evolution if it says do on
the card! Boy, Wizards does know a lot about upcomming
Nick15 sez: Er.... don't jump ahead of yourself. That
ruling is there IF AND ONLY IF there ever was a Rocket
Scizor card made up. Wizards knows about any new cards as
much as you do. Just because Wizards put that "unless
switched or evolved" thing on there, it doesn't mean they
know that Japan's Media Factory has a Rocket's Scizor in
Q: Neo Discovery
Pineco says "Flip A Coin" twice. Is this an error?
Nick15 sez: Interestingly enough, no it isn't. This is a
legitement card... although the game text is a bit on the
