Edit: Added ideas for Ruby and Sapphire Promos at the bottom.
At the moment in career there is no way to obtain any of the following cards.
Electabuzz WBSP 2 (Collect all Vending Machine cards)
Eevee WBSP 11 (No Achievement)
Mewtwo WBSP 14 (Indigo Champion)
Pikachu WBSP 26 (Collect all Legendary Collection cards)
Togepi WBSP 30 (Collect all Southern Islands cards)
Hitmontop WBSP 37 (No Achievement)
Pokemon Center WBSP 40 (Collect all Base Set 2 cards)
Pokemon Tower WBSP 42 (No Achievement)
Celebi WBSP 50 (No Achievement)
So this is a list of changes I would make to ensure that some of these promo’s become available to all players. More specifically the ones with no achievement at all.
A quick note however, that Admin/ axpendix has not implemented Pokemon Tower into the database. But if it does in the future the below idea’s should help.
Implementation of cards with no achievements
Eevee WBSP 11: “Signs of Eeveelution” Obtain 5 different evolution pokemon, that evolve from Eevee (Not including pokemon with an owner’s name, Dark or Light in their names).
This achievement should be simple enough. Just obtain 1 of each Eeveelution. (Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Espeon and Umbreon). I added the last part about not including Dark or Light or owners Pokemon, because those Eeveelutions where uncommon cards. Since the Eevee promo is holo, it would make sense that you should obtain rare varieties of each Eeveelution. For this quests achievement, you should not need to obtain the holo jungle Eeveelutions, nor the holo neo Discovery Eeveelutions. The non holos will be fine. (since the Holo Jungle Eeveelutions can not be assembled with ink).
Hitmontop WBSP 37: “Let it rip” Retreat a pokemon 10 times in one game.
This achievement is based of the Bayblade series and how Hitmontop kinda resembles a spinning top/ Bayblade. Hence the name of the achievement. I thought of how it attacks by hitting an opponent then retreating and hitting again, which is where I got the inspiration for retreating several times in one match. I was going to have a “do this or that with hitmonchan/ hitmonlee/ hitmontop” kind of achievement. But I kind of like this one better. It should be worth noting that cards that force retreating should also count towards this achievement. Either by an attack or a trainer card too. Some examples: Switch. Gust of wind (from your opponent’s side). Warp Point. Double Gust. ex Sandstorm Dunsparce Strike and run.
Pokemon Tower WBSP 42: “6 feet under” Discard 6000 cards.
This was a bit of a stretch, but since the pokemon tower stadium prevents you from getting cards back from the discard pile (meaning dead forever basically) and that in the Pokemon games, Pokemon Tower was a place for ghost pokemon to hang out, I thought “Why don’t we have an Achievement for putting cards into the discard pile/ graveyard (as it’s called in other games like Yu-Gi-Oh). The number of cards to be discarded can be changed to whatever seems fit. But I choose 6000, because it goes with the number 6, as in 6 feet under (the standard for how deep a grave should be dug). As i mentioned earlier, this card has not been implemented on the TCG ONE website yet. But this is an idea for an achievement unlocking if the card is ever implemented in the future.
Celebi WBSP: 50: “Pokemon 4Ever” Collect all BEST cards.
The BEST cards was a sort of mini promotional set that Wizards of the Coast released around the time of the E-card series sets. The set contains only 9 cards, but 5 of those cards are reprints of older cards with a special reverse holo print. (Worth noting that Base Set Hitmonchan was reprinted with 60 HP). The reason why I chose “Collect all BEST cards” as the achievement goal, to go with this Celebi promo, was because The Celebi Promo is promoting the 4th Pokemon Movie, Pokemon 4 Ever. 2 of the cards in this mini set feature “Rocket’s Pokemon”, Rocket’s Sneasel and Rocket’s Scizor, with the main villain from the movies face, to the side of the images, and both pokemon appear in the movie. Not a single one of these cards from this mini set is in the TCG ONE sites database though, so I doubt we’ll ever get them any time soon. I’ll leave a link to the page with these BEST Promos on.
If anyone would like to contribute some ideas to unlocking these achievements or changing them in any way please let me know. I still haven’t thought up an idea for WBSP Mewtwo 14 yet.
Ruby and Sapphire Promos
Looking through the original Ruby and Sapphire Promos there is a lot of promos for the starter pokemon as well as the first worlds promo cards. I have tried to piece together which promos fit each set. Mostly going down based on “That pokemon is in that set” or that “Pokemon fits that set”. But if any of these seem out of place. Let me know so I can change them.
