Title: Re: Cannot Find Accurate Source on VS Era
That solves the inconsistencies in the Bulbapedia article.

You have been a great help. I am glad I found this forum. I need to look around some more and see if there is anything I can contribute.
Title: Re: Cannot Find Accurate Source on VS Era
Thanks Adamant for looking that up for me. I have to depend on translators to read Japanese. So this saves some time trying to translate the translation. 8-)

So there were only the three half decks? If so, there would be no way only one type of pokémon would be found (Bulbapedia example: only fire pokémon in the Fire-Water deck) in each deck. Maybe they meant you would find either fire or water in the pack marked Fire-Water as an example?

The secret Team Rocket card was released in the special tournament version of the half deck. This deck was released by Media Factory in several languages including English. The English deck was the only one with an error card (not the secret card, but a different one).

That is a plausible idea, but not for WotC. The VS cards were never released internationally except for the Tyranitar half deck distributed through the tournaments. Only Media Factory published the cards.

Come to think of it, maybe Pojo has old files or has been archived.

Uh, what about archives of your site?
Title: Cannot Find Accurate Source on VS Era
Hello,

I am doing research for a CardDex and inventory tracker. I am having difficulty finding accurate information about the VS cards. The only two sources that I normally use, Bulbapedia and Serebii, have incomplete or inaccurate information. I know it has been a long time since these cards were published, but if anyone remembers how the cards were packaged, please contact me.

The information that I have so far is that the cards came in packs of 30. There were 3 half-decks with randomized cards(?) but only one type of pokémon (the example given states the Fire-Water half deck only had Fire pokémon cards), but the other packs had random cards. There is no real information about whether these packs consisted of completely random cards or if they contained a certain percentage of pokémon, trainer and energy cards. The only half-deck that had fixed cards was the promotional Tyranitar Half Deck.

Any accurate information (or even a link) will be greatly appreciated.
