    Okay, Nintendo occasionally releases a promotional catalogue advertising their new and upcoming products... Their Summer 2003 guide has a two-page plug on the R/S series... and page 17 shows the Sneasel ex card from the series - clearly not a holo-foil card (as it has a dot code on it...)

    Has *anyone* seen/heard of non-holo-foil ex cards before?

    I've not heard of non-holo EX cards other than Groudon and Kyogre (from Scrye). But, I have heard that holo versions of Groudon and Kyogre were given out at Gen-Con.

    I'm guessing that that add copy was produced before the set was actually released, possibly using card mock-ups made for that purpose. A mockup would probably not be holo, and might be produced on a dot coded template.

    Just a thought.

    Probably just a mock up, but I wanted to make sure. :)

    So Groudon and Kyogre were released in another Magazine besides Nintendo Power?

    Yes, non-holo versions were also inserted in Scrye and Inquest magazines (which is where one had to go to get mint copies :(). They were inserted singly, though, as opposed to NP which had both in one issue.

    A Preview Sneasel EX's (which also had the wrong text) image was released a few months back. It had a non holo border if i remember correctly.

    Yep, the "Sneasel EX" that was shown in that pamphlet was absolutely incorrect. Here are the errors. Good thing it was only a prototype!

    "Sneasel EX" 80 HP (D)
    Basic Pokémon
    (standard EX Rule)
    (D) Double Scratch (10)
    (D)(D)(C) Beat Up (20x) Flip 3 coins. This attack does 20 damage times the number of heads.
    W: (F)
    R: (P)-30
    RC: (C)

    Obviously, this was a prototype.
