    Good morning everyone.

    I have recently dug out my Pokemon cards from the attic, and in there I ha e found a Dark Vileplume holo 1st edition. Not that special I know but if you can see on this picture, the weakness is fighting. Is this correct? should it not be fire?

    Hope you guys can help me just for my own peace of mind.

    Yes the Weakness should be Fire but they all were printed with the Fighting Weakness

    Can you take a picture of the back. And another one of the front so the foil pattern can be seen better

    That doesn't look like the right foil pattern for that card.
    It is the starry pattern from the US Base set (and a few after that).
    By Team Rocket, they had switched to the "cosmic" foil pattern.
    So, I don't feel that this card is "right".

    Which is why i asked for a better picture of the front. The card could be a real non-holo rare but someone foiled it.
