Hey everyone,have you noticed that there are 3 different versions of the same common card and 2 different versions of the same uncommon card in R&S?You can tell by the #/Letter combo in the lower left corner of the card(xxx-xxx-xxx).Each "same name" card will have the last 3 #/letters different.Supposedly the difference is the bar code for the E-Reader does something different on each card.

For example,I have two Zigzagoons:One is 4R7-LBY-H66 and the other is 4R7-LBY-BQX

Maybe you have known this and I`ve been in outer space abducted by space aliens?But boy,does this throw a loop for those "avid" collecters that must get a copy of every single print of the same card...

Yeah... I noticed that too... Two fo my Torchic are like that.

Was thinking of using those to reference the cards, but when I noticed that they were different...

It's too bad how they don't put the X-00-# code on all the cards...

Thats interesting, i shall go see what the difference is immediatly and i''' get back to you all soon.

[edit]
Ok, i have tested 3 cards so far, 2 uncommon and 1 common. The uncommons were Marshtomp(W93-K7Y-DUX and W93-K7Y-TE8) and Silcoon(LGZ-FA0-3V3 and LGZ-FA0-TAG). The common being Carvanha(X7J-B61-D31 and X7J-B61-N9R)(i only have 2 versions of carvanha). Anywho, there was no difference in the e-reader information, so i dont really understand the point of the different ID numbers...

I scanned 3 different numbered carvahnas and they all had the exact same info on the E-reader. [Dubious]

Well the cards I got are two Skitty's of different types, two Professor Birch (foil and non-foil) and two Poocheyna with the Knock Off Attack (foil and non-foil) respectively in three boosters. But I havent encountered three of the same type in one booster here. IMO, there nothing much of a problem. I got some good Holos, Mewtwo EX and two Schtyer EX. [Smile]

I have`nt tested them yet but from what I`ve been told,it`s only the uncommon and commons.Not the energies and reverse holo`s.

Probably just indicates the print run.

I checked out a few of the cards we have. The info contained in the e-reader strip is the same. If you look over to the right a bit, there is another code that is the same on all the same types of cards(for example all carvana's have this code even though the bottom corner code is different). This code on the bottom corner is probably to identify fakes as well as a print run probably.

Whew. I thought for a minute that Nintendo forget to make a&b versions of certain cards. Nice to know it's just a print run marking (probably).

It doesn't make sense to be a print run thing if cards in the same box have different codings.
Lord knows what they are, though.

Hm... idea.

While perhaps the codes do not determine the print run, but perhaps they determine what the print run IS.

Hm. To help clarify, I'll use an example.

Some of you might remember that a while back on Pokémon Aaah!, Nick15 seem to have found that commons in packs weren't completely random, but rather were printed in a block (info here).

Perhaps this is a similar thing going on. But instead, these codes tell what slot in the booster pack the card will be in. For example...
Electrike (#52/109):
3WG-VCI-23X - found in the first common slot
3WG-VCI-60P - found in the second common slot
3WG-VCI-UB5 - found in the third common slot

Of course, this is purely speculation. As I have no way to prove this (yet). So, here's my plan. The next time you get a pack of EX: Ruby & Sapphire, keep ALL of the cards in the order. Then [EMAIL=BPMdotEXE@hotmail.com]email me[/EMAIL] the list of cards in the pack (starting with the first card when you look at the front side of the cards) with all of their codes.

Like I've said, this is purely speculation. If the data I'm given conflicts with each other, then I will forget this theory, and think of other things.

Like, for example, a future e-Reader program will be created so that you enter these codes in the e-Reader program so that it can send new data to Ruby & Sapphire (such as old Pokémon, National Dex, etc.).

Sounds like a plan. How many packs you think you're gonna need? I'm hoping to get a handful over the weekend.

Kinda OT, but does it seem like certain cards just aren't "rare?" I mean, I got three packs of EX Friday, and I got all 3 Spec. Energy. Rainbow, Dark, and a Holo Metal... In the packs I got a few weeks before, a Rainbow...

That's not all... In six packs, and one Sapphire deck, I got all 3 starter's full lines... Odd, no? Never happened with Wizards...

In any case, sure, I'll report my packs to ya. Want us to keep our own records of the codes, too?

I'll see about working with Nick about that idea. Sounds neat.

Tails - as many as possible. The more the better, I always say. And, yes. I'll need the codes, too.

The format for each pack should be:
Card 1 - Name, card number, and code
Card 2 - Name, card number, and code
Card 3 - Name, card number, and code
And so on. And the first card is the first card you look at when they're face up (which would be a common).

Three of us drafted 6 packs each last night, and got 5(!) Swampert in those 18 packs. Of course, we got 1 Blazekin and no Sceptile.

That's great and all, but that doesn't help me in the least. As, so it would seem, all rares have the same exact code.

// points to his above post about needed information.
