    I noticed the scan of Empoleon Lv. X in the Research Tower has a Poke Body icon next to its Poke Power. Has anyone got one that is correct or is this an error affecting all of them?

    We might start seeing pokebodies that are activated. Before now, pokebodies were always going, and pokepowers were activated. Maybe this will change. OR maybe this is a global misprint.

    Corectly it should have a poke power per the JPN version. also something to note the power name is in red, like powers, not green, for bodies.
  4. My Emploeon LV.X says Power
  5. lol, after reading this(And saying that it said Power) I went and reread it...It says Body....whoops

    It's an error. Errata will be forthcoming.
  7. Any Chance they will fix the print on the cards when they make more ? Than one of them either the new one or the old one would become the next big TV Reporter type deal.

    The Ex: Dragon set reverse Holo TV Reporter brings prices that are high, yes.
    But that is a very rare card, at least in the US.
    Any time you have an error on every single printing of the card, it does not add much to the price.
    Shining Tyranitar has "hust" instead of "just" in it's text, but since every one of them has it, no big deal.
  13. But what if they were to fix the text on the Empoleon X during the next print ? Or is there no way that will happen now? What about when the set is released in other English set countries?

    Urgh, I can imagine Emploeon LvX raising high prices simply because there is a chance that a fixed reprint might make it rare.

    I had to go look at the card I have. Sure enough. What a mistake! Is the card usable?

    Not at all. Send it to me for disposal.
  17. I might have racked up another 5 pts if I had said that.

    It would be nice if it stayed as Poké-Body, not taking Cursed Stone damage... =P

    But I'm pretty sure it will be errata'ed in no time.
  19. Whats the Japanese card say or have on it?

    How is this going to work, now? If we're gonna have an Empoleon Lv.X with a power and one with a body, is it going to follow the 'play it as written on the card' rule?
