----------|  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 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.

   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

                         Misaka's instructions.  If you win,

----------|  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.

----------|  12.0:  PROMOTIONAL CARD SPOILER

   Promotional cards are gained in various ways during your
   Quest.  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.

   counterparts.  For example, the card "Bill" is "Masaki".  Even
   more strange, the card "Lass" is actually called "Miniskirt"!
