    Hey there, I'm DarthWolf.

    I'm a big fan of pokemon and I'm a collector. I love to collect pokemon cards. Although I know how to play, I don't collect them for playing purposes and only play online once in a while. What I do love about the cards is the art on it.

    Around a year ago I started collecting cards again and what better way to get back into it than with the Evolutions set. Since then I've slowly been expanding my collection again, but I felt like I needed a goal to work towards, to make it feel more rewarding. That goal is to make a Living Dex out of TCG cards.

    So how does this work? I have a few binders that I use for this in which I order the pokemon on their national dex number, one for each slot. This will result in something like this

    As you can see, I'm missing Squirtle and Wartortle so their slots are left empty.

    I'm using a site to keep track of this TCG Dex.
    Checklist

    I wanted to record and share this journey to a full pokedex and this seemed like the perfect place to do it. I will update this thread and share highlights whenever I get something new, so I hope you'll enjoy it:)

    As of this post I have collected:
    363 pokemon / 44.2%

    Current Progress:
    491 Pokémon / 59.9%

    I think a living dex of cards themselves is a fantastic idea. :D I collect for art myself but I like to organize by set and number.

    Would definitely love to see how this comes along! <3

    Thanks, sorting by set is also a great way but I feel like that looks disappointing and wasted when you only have a few of a set

    I could post pics, but that's a bit much:p
    That's where the checklist comes in.

    Also keep in mind that its not updated to USUM yet.

    Hey, I have that Ivysaur! I myself am a casual collector, but I also play the tcg with my brothers occasionally. Tbh I'm more picky-choosy with the cards I collect, but a full card dex is a neat goal. Good luck filling your collection!

    Like, it's going to take a long time but when you look back at your work, it could seem like a short period of time.

    Got another small improvement. The highlight is definitely Kadabra Base Set though. I found him today as a seperate sale.
    I was aware at the start of this hunt that, as some of you might know, Kadabra has only appeared in a few very old TCG sets. I knew he wouldn't be found in pack openings so I took the opportunity.:D

    Anything base set I love for the obvious nostalgia factors. So great find! :D

    After getting the Legends of Johto set I got some new cards added to the list. Seriously though, I already had Entei and Raikou, give me a Suicune... But hey, it's cool to have the trio card.

    Besides that @Max1996 was willing to trade me some cards I didn't have in the list yet. So thanks a lot for that man!:D

    Got suicune :) and the best part is that he is Japanese as well, got quite a bunch of Japanese cards from the pokecenter a month ago. This also includes some new mons for my dex. I'm currently at 59.9% / 491 mons.
    For some reason they dont have them in the store now. However, I'll definitely fet more if I get the chance.
