================================================================= Edo's "Pokemon Card GB" File v2.0 by Edo (firstname.lastname@example.org) Copyright (c) 1999 by Edward T. Hrzic III Last updated: 99/08/16 Pokemon is a copyright/trademark of Nintendo, Creatures, and GAME FREAK. Pokemon Card GB was also created with Hudson Soft. http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Alley/2247/Poke.htm ================================================================= ----------| 0.0: TABLE OF CONTENTS 1.0 WHAT IS IS ABOUT? 2.0 HISTORY 3.0 SOME BACKGROUND 4.0 THE GAME 4.5 .....A few game hints 5.0 BUILDING A DECK 6.0 THE COMPUTER 7.0 BATTLE 8.0 IMAKUNI? 9.0 THE TUTORIAL GAME 10.0 THE FINAL FOUR 11.0 GAMEBOY-EXCLUSIVE CARD SPOILER 12.0 PROMOTIONAL CARD SPOILER 13.0 ALBUM LISTING 14.0 OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST 15.0 THINGS TO BE ADDED ----------| 1.0: WHAT IS IT ABOUT? This file is a review/FAQ/explaination for the Pokemon card game for the Gameboy, called "Pokemon Card GB". I'll try to give as much information as possible. ----------| 2.0: HISTORY v2.0 This release of this file: - Too many changes to mention individually ----------| 3.0: SOME BACKGROUND I picked up "Pokemon Card GB" at a local game store that imports Japanese games. Since I'm in Hawai'i, the game cost me about $34.95. You also get a Promotional Card inside of it (the promo Kairyuu [Dragonite]). I do not have a Japanese GB (I have a U.S. one), but the Japanese cartridge works perfectly. I believe that the European GBs have smaller slots, so I don't think the Japanese cartridge will work. Oh, and it works perfectly fine with my aged, original, black and white GB. ----------| 4.0: THE GAME Well, it's basically a "Quest" version of the trading card game. You start out with a deck of your choosing, from three available. And from there, you proceed to collect a series of eight medals from each of the Club Masters in order to gain entrance to the Pokemon Dome to fight the "Final Four". While you do, you will combat lesser people around the Clubs, in a game of cards. When you win these matches (and any other match), you win two booster packs. There are a total of four different booster packs, and you win them depending on the difficulty of the opponent (at least, it appears that way to me). Oh, and the cards from the GB version range all of the way up to the Fossil expansion -- and that includes all of the promo cards! Plus, there are a few cards that are only in this game (denoted with a GB symbol, show on the data sheet for the particular Pokemon). In between some of the battles, you'll encounter your nemesis, Rando, in some battles. --> The Opening Menu Card Battle Link up with a friend Continue Ditto. If you reset the game, it will ask you if you wish to continue. Begin a New Game Ditto. Resume If you reset the game (by hitting Select+Start+A+B), you can select this option to take you back to that place you reset on Controls Pad: Move around Select: Use during battle Start: Open the menu B: Cancel; You can also hold it down to walk faster A: Talk/Examine/Select --> The Overhead Map Whenever you exit one of the buildings, you will be taken to the Overhead Map. Here, you can select any of the buildings to go to. You can't get far into the Pokemon Dome without having the eight medals. The following is an EXTREMELY rough estimate of the overhead map. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Challenge Fire Club Hall Mr. Ishihara's Science House Esper Club Club Pokemon Stone Dome Green Club Club Elec Club Dr. Ooyama's Battle Aqua awawe Club Club ----------------------------------------------------------------- --> The Start Menu Pressing 'Start' during the game will bring up the following menu on the right-hand side of the screen: Status Save Decks Cards Options Exit --> Status This brings up the status screen, giving you the following: Name Album (The number of different cards you have; total of 226) Playing Time Master Medals -----> Save It will ask you if you wish to save the game: Yes No -----> Decks You can edit your decks here. See section 5.0 to build decks. -----> Cards Here, you can see the cards that you own. -----> Options Option Menu Message Speed Slow 1 2 3 4 5 Fast Battle Animations Normal Skip Don't Show Exit 4.5: A Few Hints Some have asked me how to get started, and what medals to go for. Well, after you complete the first tutorial in the game, Dr. Ooyama will give you a choice of decks to start with: Hitokage [Charmander] and Friends deck Zenigame [Squirtle] and Friends deck Fushigidane [Bulbasaur] and Friends deck Each of those decks gives you the family of that Evolution (for those Charizard fans, yes, the Hitokage [Charmander] deck gives it to you). You may want to go for the medals in the following order: Aqua: This club is, by far, the easiest. The cards required to win the general matches are low, so you should spend a while here to gain a relatively good collection of cards. Fire: Well, since you've collected a number of Water cards from the Aqua club, you should go here. With all due respect, you should be able to murder all of the club member's decks with your water deck. You should spend some time here to gain some Fire cards. Grass: Since you got some Fire cards at the previous club, take down the Grass decks here. However, the club master is missing! Simply beat the second lady to the left of the screen, and she'll tell you that the club master is at Mr. Ishihara's house. Go there, and talk to her, then she'll leave. Go back to the Grass club, and then you'll be able to fight her. Stone: Since you have some Grass cards now, go to the Stone club. Elec: Take your fighting Pokemon deck and nuke them. Science: The Science club is a bit hard to classify, since there are a range of decks. Just play an opponent for a few turns to see what they have, then reset the game and modify your deck accordingly. Esper: The Esper club can be ANNOYING, to say the least. Your best bet is a Colorless Pokemon deck, with Korattas [Rattatas], Purins [Jigglypuffs], etc., that have a resistance to Psychic. Battle: This club should be saved for last, because you need to walk around to find the members to beat. When you first talk to the club master, he'll ask you to find his members. Basically, they are in the other club lounges. Find and defeat all three of them, and then you'll be able to fight the club master. The three that I found were in the Fire, Grass, and Stone clubs, but it may be random. ----------| 5.0: BUILDING A DECK When you select the Deck option from the menu, the first screen that you will see is a list of four items. This is your deck listing. At first, only the first slot will be full, because you only have one deck. There will also be a hand full of cards next to it. This hand icon indicates that it is the deck that you are currently using. Press up and down to choose a deck, and press 'A' to continue, or 'B' to cancel. You will then get a sub-menu at the bottom of the screen. Edit Deck Use Deck Name Deck Cancel Selecting 'Use Deck' will make that deck the one you use during the card battles. --> Creating/Editing a Deck When you select 'Edit Deck', you will see a listing of the card types across the top of the screen, plus a listing of the cards in the large window. Select the card type you wish, and either press 'A', or press 'Down' to search through the list of cards. Pressing 'Right' on a card will increase the use of that card in your deck by 1. There will be two values next to the card (i.e. 3/20). The first number is the number of that card you are using in the current deck. The second value is the number of them that you actually have left in your collection (this number may lessen as you make other decks as well). Pressing 'Left' will reduce your usage by 1. Remember that you can only have 4 of any card in a deck. If you wish to see what a card does, press 'A' when on it. You can then press 'Up' to see the previous card on the list, or 'Down' to see the next card on the list. Pressing 'Start' when selecting a card type will show you a list of the cards that you currently have in the deck. When you are done creating a deck, press 'B' and a menu will pop up. Listing Edit Name Save Deck Erase Stop If you try to save a deck, and you are under or over the sixty card limit, it will not let you save it. ----------| 6.0: THE COMPUTER In the various clubs, and at other locations, you may notice a computer sitting on the corner. This a 'Record' computer, I guess, and you can use it to check your progress. Examine it, and you will get a menu. Card Album A listing of different cards you have Read Manual Read one of Professor Ooyama's manuals Glossary A glossary of terms in the game Printout Used with the GB printer (which I don't have) Turn Off Cancel --> Card Album You will get a listing of 5 items: 1. Pokemon (Koroshiamu) 2. Mystery of Evolution 3. () Pokemon 4. Pokemon Lab 5. Promotional Cards Select any one of them with the 'A' button, or 'B' to cancel. You can them cycle through the different cards that you have, and see which card numbers that you need. --> Read Mail There is certain mail that Dr. Ooyama will enable you to read when you complete various portions of the game. The interval is usually when you gain a new Medal. If you haven't read a mail yet, it will be blinking. Select it with the 'A' button, and Dr. Ooyama will give you a spiel. After that, you will get a pack of cards, sometimes two. After you finish the game for the first time, mails 13-15 will be blinking, and you can claim the cards from there. --> Glossary A glossary of terms in the game. Since you've already played the 'real' card game, you don't really need to see it, now do you? ----------| 7.0: BATTLE So, you think you're ready for battle, huh? If you've played the real card game before, you need to know a few things. 1. There is no "Mulligan" rule. This means that if you or your opponent does not draw a basic Pokemon in their opening hand, the opponent does not get to draw the two extra cards (NOTE: I have had my opponent reshuffle up to five times, and I still have not draw any extra cards. There goes most of my Decking Deck idea down the drain...) 2. Not all of the battles are for six Prizes ("Side Cards" in the Japanese game). Many of the easier battles are only for two Prizes. The others are four prizes. The battles with the Club Masters and the Grand Masters ARE for six Prizes, though. Usually when you talk to the people in the club room (north of the entrance), they will ask you if you wish to fight them. Selecting 'Yes' will take you into the battle scene. The initial set-up is self-explanatory. If each player draws a basic Pokemon, then you will be taken to your 'Hand List' screen. Select a Pokemon to put as your Active Pokemon with the 'A' button. From there, you can either choose the first option from the small menu to select it, or choose the second option to look at it. If you change your mind, hit 'B'. Then, if you wish to put any Pokemon on your bench, select them in the same way. If you don't wish to, or you run out of Pokemon to put down, press the 'B' button. A coin will begin to flip. Press 'A' or 'B' to begin the toss. 'Heads' means that you will go first. 'Tails', and your opponent goes first. During your turn, you will draw a card, then be given the 'Game-Play' menu. Hand Check Retreat Attack Special Done --> Hand From here, you are given your 'Hand List' to play Pokemon, Trainer cards, Energy cards, etc. --> Attack Self explanatory. Select which attack you wish to use from that menu. --> Check This will give you a sub-menu. All Cards Glossary Your Cards Opponent's Cards -----> All Cards This will give you a view of both player's Active Pokemon and Benched Pokemon. Your Pokemon will be highlighted by default. Pressing up or down will highlight either your opponent's Pokemon or your own. Pressing 'A' will select it, or press 'B' to cancel. -----> Your Cards This will bring up another menu. Your Pokemon Your Hand Your Discard Pile -------> Your Pokemon You can cycle through your own Pokemon. -------> Your Discard Pile You can cycle through your Discard Pile. -------> Your Hand You can cycle through the cards in your hand. --> Special Use one of your Pokemon's Pokemon Power from here. --> Retreat If you select this, choose which Energy cards to be discarded. Or press 'B' to cancel. If you do retreat, then select a benched Pokemon to be your active Pokemon. --> Done If you don't want to do anything (or can't), select this. ----------| 8.0: IMAKUNI? (Yes, the question mark is part of the guy's name.) "Hmm? Wh-What do you want? Eh? Me? You don't know who I am? I am the Super Musical Star, Imakuni? ! Well?" ----- Imakuni? is a little guy in mouse-like ears, who usually appears in the left-hand room of the clubs, on the left side of the bookcase. You'll know he's there, because the music will change to a VERY weird beat. Imakuni?'s not a very hard opponent to beat. He uses obscure Pokemon in his deck, such as Kamonegi [Farfetch'd], Yadon [Slopoke], Yadoran [Slobro], Kodakku [Psyduck] and others. Unless there is some twist of fate, you will probably defeat him by making him run out of Pokemon rather than win all of your Prizes. The first two times that you win against him, you will get one of each booster pack. The third time, you will get the Imakuni? promotional card. The fourth and fifth times, you will get 1 of each booster pack again. The sixth time, you will get the Imakuni? promotional card again. After that, any time that you beat him, you will get the booster packs. In another note, Imakuni? is one of three singers in a Japanese band, called "Suzukisan". If you purchase the "Pokemon Best Collection" CD, he sings on it. ----------| 9.0: THE TUTORIAL GAME At the beginning of the game, you will go through a tutorial game with Mikasa, that shows you the workings of the game.

Practice As if your practiced originally Explain Rules Ditto Nothing Cancel ----------| 10.0: THE FINAL FOUR You've got all eight medals. You've got plenty of cards. You're kicked everyone's butts up until now. Now you're ready for the 'Final Four'. Open the doors in the Pokemon Dome, and walk up the small set of stairs. You've given one last chance to back-out, or prepare. If you decide to continue, you will fight the Pokemon Masters one at a time. In between, they will ask you if you wish to view your status. DO IT. You will be able to change your deck and save. This is a very good thing. First up will be Hiroko, the 'Fire Queen'. She will be using (surprise) a Fire deck, with Charmanders, Growlithes, and the GB-exclusive game, Faiyaa [Moltres]. Pull out your Water deck, and she should fall relatively easily. Here is the Water deck that I used against her: 21 Water Energy 4 Double Colorless Energy 3 Zenigame (Squirtle) 2 Kameeru (Wartortle) 4 Paokuu (Seel) 3 Jugon (Dewgong) 4 Hitodeman (Staryu) 3 Sutaamii (Starmie) 3 Koikingu (Magikarp) 2 Gyaradosu (Gyrados) 2 Rapurasu (Lapras) 2 Professor Ookido (Professor Oak) 1 Masaki (Bill) 1 Energy Removal 2 Monster Ball 1 Gust of Wind 2 Potion 1 Full Heal Next up is Steve and his Lightning deck. Some of the cards include Voltorbs and Electabuzzes. Here is the Fighting deck I used against him: 21 Fighting Energy 4 Double Colorless Energy 3 Wanrikii (Machop) 4 Sekumuraa (Hitmonlee) 4 Ebikuraa (Hitmonchan) 1 Kamonegi (Farfetch'd) 2 Rakkii (Chansey) 2 Professor Ookido (Professor Oak) 3 Masaki (Bill) 1 Pokemon Trader 2 Monster Ball 4 PlusPower 1 Gust of Wind 4 Potion 3 Super Potion 1 Full Heal Now you're up against Kanekouji and his Water deck. Expect Lapras and Seels, along with Furiizaa [Articuno]. Here is the Lightning deck I used against him: 21 Lightning Energy 4 Double Colorless Energy 3 Pikachu (LV.14) 2 Raichuu (LV.45) 3 Koiru (LV.13) (Magnemite) 2 Reakoiru (LV.35) (Magneton) 3 Erebuu (LV.35) (Electabuzz) 2 Sandaa (LV.40) (Zapdos) 4 Rakkii (Chansey) 3 Garuura (Kangashkan) 2 Professor Oookido (Professor Oak) 4 Masaki (Bill) 1 Pokemon Trader 1 Energy Removal 1 Monster Ball 1 Gust of Wind 2 Potion 1 Full Heal Last up is Ryudo and his Dragon deck. The cards include Charmanders, Dratinis, Magikarps and Kangashkans. I used the same Lightning Deck as above, and won pretty easily. If this is your first time finishing the game, you will fight your nemesis, Rando, before going into the Winner's Gate. Otherwise, you can do through the Winner's Gate. There will be a pedestal and a card floating on it. You can get it if you wish, but if you walk behind the pedestal, you'll see a computer. If you access it, you can see some of the promotional cards that were used in the decks of the Final Four. Afterward, pick up the card. If this is your first time finishing the game, you'll get four promotional cards. If you finish the game again, you'll get one of them again. The next time, you'll get the second one, and so on. After that, whenever you finish the game, you'll get nothing for your trouble. ----------| 11.0: GAMEBOY-EXCLUSIVE CARD SPOILER The following cards ONLY exist in the GB card game. There IS one GB card that exists outside of the GB game that you get as a promotional card when you buy the game.

Most of them are gained by trading cards to various people. Some others are gained after card battles. It is also important to note that it appears that you can only get two of any particular promotional card through normal game play. However, you may be able to get them by trading with a friend through the Link Cable. Getting the promotional cards also seems to be time-dependant. The first time that I played through the game, some of the promotional cards would be one place. But the second time that I played through, some were in the same place, and others were in DIFFERENT places than before! So, I have tried to compile a list of the possible locations to get the promotional cards: -----| Mr. Ishihara Mr. Ishihara's cards seem to be one of the constants that you can get. The first time, he'll ask for a Pikushii [Clefable] in exchange for a Surfing Pikachu (the one with the ocean in the background). The second time, he'll ask for a Metamon [Ditto] in exchange for a Flying Pikachu. The third time, he'll want a Rakkii [Chansey] for the other Surfing Pikachu (the one with Mt. Fuji in the background). -----| Aqua Club There is a girl at the table that will want a Rapurasu [Lapras] for an Windii [Arcanine]. -----| Elec Club Near the entrance, and the bottom, is a man who wants an Erebuu [Electabuzz] in exchange for a promo Erebuu [Electabuzz]. -----| Stone Club There is a man sitting at the right side of the table in the lounge. Ever now and then, he'll ask you to give him a card (usually, these are uncommons). Do it. Eventually, since you've been so nice to him, he'll give you a promo card. -----| Esper Club There is an old man all of the way to the left in the lounge. After you get the Esper Medal, he'll give you a promo Mewtwo. -----| Fire Club There is a young boy near the top of the lounge that wants Energy cards. If you say yes, he'll take all of your remaining Energy cards (the ones that aren't in your decks), and tell you about a promo card location. Go to the window/pictureframe behind him at the top of the lounge, and examine it. You'll get a promo there. Either way, if you give him the card or not, he leaves. It's best to leave him be until late in the game. And, no, if you don't give him the Energy, you don't get the promo. -----| Rando Whenever you encounter Rando in your travels, and you beat him (this will be twice), you'll get a promo card each time. The first one is usually a Purin [Jigglypuff]. -----| The Challenge Cup Go to the Challenge Hall and play in the tournament. Each time that you win the tournament, you'll get a promo card. After you finish the Challenge Cup for the first time, go back after every medal that you get. Sometimes a new tournament will start. -----| Imakuni? See the Imakuni? section in order to get his promo card. Windi [Arcanine] Type: Stage 1 Fire Pokemon (Evolves from Gaadi) LV.34 HP 70 CC: Quick Attack: 10+ Effect: Flip a coin. If heads, this attack does 20 more damage. RR: Fure Blaze : 40+ Effect: You must discard 2 R Energy cards attached to this Pokemon in order to use this attack. This attack does 10 more damage for each damage counter on this Pokemon. -C Retreat W Weakness No. 59 (Promo) Pikachu Type: Basic Lightning Pokemon LV.16 HP 60 C: Cry Effect: During your opponent's next turn, damage done to this Pokemon by attacks is reduced by 10.

If heads, the Defending Pokemon is now Paralyzed. CCC: Fly: 30 Effect: Flip a coin. If tails, this attack does nothing. If heads, during your opponent's next turn, prevent all damage done to this Pokemon from attacks. -C Retreat F Weakness No. 25 (Promo) Surfing Pikachu Type: Basic Lightning Pokemon LV.13 HP 50 WW: Surf: 30 -C Retreat F Weakness No. 25 (Promo) Erebuu [Electabuzz] Type: Basic Lighting Pokemon LV.20 HP 60 L: Light Wall Effect: During your opponent's next turn, reduce all damage done to this Pokemon by half (rounding up).

If heads, this attack does 20 more damage. -CC Retreat F Weakness No. 125 (Promo) Myutsuu [Mewtwo] Type: Basic Psychic Pokemon LV.60 HP 70 P: Energy Absorption Effect: Choose two Energy cards in your Discard pile and attached them to this Pokemon.
