    Hello I have a misprint/error card of an English Kakuna, bought in the US.

    However, first of all my card's attack states:

    "Speed Evolution - Search your deck for a card that evolves from Kaduua and put it onto Kakuna. (This counts as evolving Kakuna .) Shuffle your deck after ward."

    In other words, its misspells Kakuna as KADUUA (?), it has a 'space' between the word Kakuna and the point ("Kakuna .)") and afterwards is spelled as after ward.

    In addition, it is only foiled in the picture, and not on the whole card as other Unleashed cards are supposed to be, but I'm not a 100% sure about that.

    The card is mint and still in its packing, i.e. on the back of a deck-tin in a plastic foil.

    Couldn't find it anywhere on the webs. Is this anything special?
    Thxxx Joris

    Is there anyway you could post a picture? That way we can rule out (or confirm) the possibility of it being fake.

    A picture from the front of the box would be helpfull, but I'm pretty sure it's a fake card. So many spelling mistakes in a single card, and foil ...

    It does sound suspiciously like a fake, though why someone would bother faking a kakuna... lol

    What does the tin look like? (It's looking like one of those dollar store fakes).

    It definitely looks like a fake one. The font of the status is incorrect. The font is bold as the quotes should go straight up and down. "after ward" should be one word "afterward". The sentence right before it should have the period right beside Kakuna. Just some of the small things I immediately noticed.

    If it is fake, I have to admit that it's a good one. There's no large red flags on it except for the spelling errors. All of the "Pokemon" words have a ' over the e, most of the font looks pretty good and the energy symbols aren't bloated. I might have to pull out a real one to compare...

    Even the packaging looks legit with the Pokemon symbols on it. But I've never heard of a promo card being on the bottom of a tin.

    A few pictures on the rest of the tin may help. :)

    This is an impressive fake, no doubt.

    Interesting that they sealed it with the official Pokemon wrap..

    Looks fake, with the image being holo being the biggest giveaway really, although a very good one.

    Taking a look at the tin, it must be a fake lol:

    (it's a small part; children under 3 can choke in this tin)

    Fakes are worth nothing I guess? I wonder what 'erroneous' cards await me inside the tin..

    Sorry for taking your time. I'm not an expert at all and didn't know of the existence of fake cards. I still don't understand why there's no information on fake Kakuna's to be found on the internet at all... Thanks for the support anyway!

    ITT producers of falsified Pokemon products make better looking tins than the real deal

    They sell those at dollar stores and flea markets. Fake for sure.

    @Joris: It's not a problem! :) It's honestly a pretty good fake, so it's easy to not be to tell the difference; especially if you haven't been around fake cards before.

    i still think it's a lower case b because you can see the alternation of cap and lower
