How to Play Pokemon Trading Card Game : Setting up a Pokemon Card Game Match


Let’s talk about setting up to play. The first
thing you are going to want to do is take your deck and give it a good shuffle. I like
to shuffle like this. You can also just sort of shuffle like this and something that is
always very polite to do is I usually ask the other player would you like to cut my
deck for me? Okay. Go for it. So what the other player does is just take the deck and
cut it in half and then I put that half on top of the other half of the deck. Basically
it is just a signal to the other player that you are not cheating or you haven’t stacked
your deck. Now that we have got them shuffled and I am holding them in my hands the first
thing you want to do is lay out the prize cards. You need six prize cards beside you
so you take them right from the top of the deck and put them face down just in a pile
like that. You can put them any way you like, you can put them in any way, you can put them
on top of each other or fanned out as Max got done over there but I prefer to put them
out like that so I can see who they are, then you are going to deal yourself cards. Do you
remember how many cards it is to start? Seven. Seven, awesome. So you are going to deal yourself
seven cards, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven. You put your deck over beside
you here because you are going to draw from it later.

    Ugggh It's so annoying when people shuffle the way she does. You spend money to get cards and you end up ruining them by shuffling them like they are fucking playing cards. THIS ISN'T POKER! Shuffle collectable cards like they are actually worth something.

    I love this game so much. I was playing the game made in 1998. and it was 6 prize. I was on my last 10 hp and my opponent had 5 prizes for my 3. So what did I do? I self destruct and get three kos on what would either way be the last turn of the game. Yup, I'm a badass like that.

    1) Shuffle
    2) Offer to cut
    3) Draw 7 Cards
    4a) Check for Basic Pokemon and lay them out
    4b) If no basic pokemon, Go Back to 1)
    5) Lay out Prizes

    This video is incorrect sadly. Thanks for the hilariously stupid thread put on HeyFonte in response to this though!

  • Pokémon Trainer Alluka Zoldyck

    You draw cards to your hand before you set your prize cards.
    This is for the rare case if you have 6 or less Basic Pokémon in your deck, and all of them are prized, you cannot start your game.

    Now we need to set up the game. Draw 7 cards. If you have no Basic Pokemon, Shuffle then see if you have any basics. If so, put one face down, then all 6 prizes…
