    I recently started collecting again after playing Pokemon Sword.

    I am so upset that my original collection is lost. I believe I left it with an ex-boyfriend about 10 years ago so doubtful that I would ever be able to get my hands on them again.

    It is nearly impossible to find booster packs to purchase, but when I do see them I buy what I can. (They usually limit you.)

    I would love to recollect the original 151, but it seems really expensive and I have heard you have to be careful purchasing online due to the amount of fakes out there.

    Jungle Set seem to have alot fakes right now. Just found 3.

    I have some Complete sets:
    Base set.
    Nearly complete Shadowless Set.
    1st Edition Jungle Complete
    1st Edition fossil mostly complete.


    These are 3 fakes:




    I had no idea they were fake until I saw a video where you hold up a light to the card and see if you can see through it.
    Real cards have a middle print layer so they aren't as easy to see through.

    At first glance you can see the color is off just a little. The picture and font is slightly fuzzy, and the Jungle symbol is printed too close to the yellow border on all of them.
    If that weren't enough the light test shows they are fakes.


    Real Nidoqueen


    Fake Wigglytuff


    Same light just the amount of light coming through the fake card changes.

    Walmart has actually been selling some fakes.
    They come as compilation packs, mixed packs with Pokemon branding, but they do look a little off. I bought a few packs to supplement collections and ended up returning all of them after they were opened. I reported it to them, but I don't think they took them off the shelf.

    They're not in blister packs, but repackaged plastic/cardboard.
