What are pokemon cards?

Pokemon cards are literally pieces of cardboard with a pokemon image on them. These were invented by Nintendo in 1995 to compete with others. Each card shows a different pokemon, each pokemon has a different number of life points and attacks. This is all indicated on the map. In addition to the pokemon cards, there are also trainer and energy cards. You need these to perform certain attacks or to use a certain tactic during a pokemon battle. To start playing immediately, it is wise to purchase a special Pokemon theme deck. It contains the right cards to get started right away so you can challenge your friends to a game of Pokemon. One uses the cards to battle against his or her friends. The other saves them like a true collector. The oldest pokemon cards can now be called vintage and some are very valuable.
