    My daughter is only missing the R in the unown collection. Does anyone know if there even is one, and where I could find it? I can't find it listed in any card lists for the different sets. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

    Not in the US. WotC didn't know about the card and it never got released here. Japan got it, though.

    Welcome to the boards.

    As Yoshi mentions, the card was published as a promo in Japan, but never released here in the US.
    It is unlikely to be at this point, since the game has moved on to e-cards.
    Many collectors are sad that the card was never released here in the states and hope that it will be eventually.

    By the way, this is the Deck forum while this is a card question. I'll move it for you, but please check the forum descriptions for future posts.

    Thanks, 'Pop

    No problem. As a matter of fact, I saw that the forum name wasn't clear enough, so I just updated and expanded it.

    Thanks for the information. She will be very disapointed. She has been scouring eBay auctions for one. Oh well. Thanks for replying.

    Well, the Japanese card does pop up now and then on eBay.
    I'd do searches using "unown coro" or "unown promo" since it was a promo in coro coro magazine.

    I still am disappointed that I'll never be able to write Team Europe in my binder using Unown cards. Why can't they release the poor card? Oh, the horror.

    Who knows, Tego. Who knows.

    Well... I suppose I could do a graphical translation for you guys if I can get a good scan of the card's art. It'll be the next best thing to having a real English Unown [R], right?

    I hoped it would be one of the Jamboree cards, but sadly that set was never released and I guess there probably isn't much chance of that happening in the future.

    Who knows, perhaps one of the unknown 54 cards in Sandstorm is Unown R. We won't know until September.

    [EDIT: added in Sandstorm to clairify what I ment.]

    Not a bad card. I hope it does get released sometime.

    Even if the card was released in Sandstorm, the layout of the card would be in e-card format, not in the older neo card format. That, to me, doesn't make it like the others. If Nintendo releases it as a promo, I would hope it would be in the Neo format and not the e-card.
