Reading the other reviews, i thought it would be a great 'reward for a job well done' for kids. I purchased this pack also hearing that there are not a lot of copies of cards but I found it very disappointing how many repeated cards there are. Here is a breakdown:

~30 unique pokemon cards, ~70 were repeats of the original 30.

13 Lampent
8 Raichu
8 Minccino
7 Vanillish
6 Kricketune
6 Scraggy
5 Emolga
4 Lapras
4 Basculin
4 Hippowdon
4 Mienshao
4 Jigglypuff
4 Krilia
4 Starmie
2 Nuzleaf
2 Vanillite
1 of Arcanine, Persion, Meowth, Grimer, Frillish, Chingling, Stantler, Pansage, Beldum, Rufflet
Foil - Arcanine, Milotic, Disknoir, Dragonite
1 supporter, 1 trainer

For me, I wish there weren't so many dupes, but as some people mentioned, this is great for grab bags for kids.

First off, I ordered from Untapped Games.

Of the 100 cards I received, this is what I got:

58 unique Pokemon cards (mostly common and a few uncommon)
37 duplicates (this is a lot and I can't say I'm pleased)
4 energy cards
1 trainer card

Not all of the cards were new. None are in bad condition, but a couple of them are clearly second-hand. Some people have complained about getting fake cards - if there are any in the batch I was sent, they're good enough that I don't recognize them.

Still, I feel like I got stuck with a LOT of dupes - because of this, I'd be inclined to try a different seller next time around. If anyone knows a seller who can guarantee a batch of 100 UNIQUE (non-duplicate) cards, I'd love to hear from you.

I received 49 different character cards with multiples of those (82 character cards total). Several with as much as 5 of the same card. 10 energy cards, 6 trainer cards, 2 supporter cards, and the 6 holo cards. The seller was MTGbiz.

We bought this for our 5.5 year old son, as a reward system. After reviewing the pack, even to someone who has never had or seen Pokemon cards before, I knew that all of the good cards were taken out before assembling these for sale. I consider a 'good' card to be a strong character, typically by the 'HP' rating at the top of the card (presumably hit points). All of these are really low HP numbers, (40-70 range).

I'm not a card trader or player, but I am a gamer and even I figured it out with my little brain. In any case, at $.15 per card, it is a good value from what I understand ($1-5 for one card, from what I've seen). You can expect a lot of duplicates (at least 40% by our count) and don't expect many really good cards, if any.

As a reward system it works great, though he won't take duplicates. We're convincing him to trade duplicates with his friends, where they will play the game after school.

This was a fine selection as a throw-in for a POKEMON newbie. It remains to be seen if it will spark greater interest.

Decent deck, nothing surprising or spectacular about this particular deck, I would definitely pick this deck up as a supplement to an existing deck.

Great foils and perfect for a beginner.

The packaging was fine, though it was clear there were some used cards, but the biggest issue is that there were 66 unique cards and the rest were duplicates. I would be OK with some duplicates, but of the 34 duplicates, there were a few with 8-10 of each. That was a bit annoying, but it's still an OK deal. I just wish they would have mentioned that in the description.

Ordered from ABCToy4me. I did get 100 cards and I did get the six foil promos so that wasn't what my issue was. While this may have been a true random assortment, the pool they were choosing from must have been limited. I did get a good number of pokemon with both base and stage 1 evolutions....but there were ALOT of duplicates. Sometimes as many as 10 of 1.

Hi, i hope this is a good review and it is helpful. The set i recieved was sold by Thevalleyskateshop. All of the cards in this pack are NOT English, as the description states. In all, there were 29 French cards in this lot, 11 being 1st edition. There were 76 cards in English, some being duplicates, and some fake. Most cards were in Near Mint condition or worse. The good cards in this pack were: Light Dewgong, Mew, Blaine's Arcanine, a 1st edition Japanese Machamp, The 6 holo's (including Blaine's Arcanine), Team Magma's Baltoy, Team Aqua's Poocheyna, Team Magma's Houndour, and Zapdos. It was delivered quite a few days early than expected, in 1st class mail. I was seriously disappointed the way the cards were stashed in the bubble mailer though. 1/2 of the were at least slightly bent. Their were 106 cards as in the description. If you are a serious collector, then i don't really recommend this buy. Its a good lot for the money though. If you just need some cards and have some cash to blow, go for it.

Originally, I bought this set thinking they were the original cards.
(the ones I collected 10 years ago)... but they weren't.
my computer has a small screen, and on that small screen they didn't look like the new ones.
I'm alright with that though.
I'll just keep searching for the old ones.

But my main complaint with this set is the amount of repeats.
I had 3 Pikachu's, 4 Luxio's, ect. ect. ect.
In total there were only about 50 cards minimum... (minus the repeats).
I don't consider repeats to count.

These two problems made me sad. This was the card game I loved as a child, and it wasn't what I was expecting at all.
Heck, I still watch Pokemon... and the new cartoons aren't nearly as good as the original either. :/
