    Hi. I Have Some Questions On Pokemon Error Cards:
    1. I Just Got A 1st Ed. Dark Raichu Today, And Noticed Something.

    I Know The Number (83/82) Was Done Purposely, But At The Top Of The Card It Says "Put Raichu On The Basic Pokemon".

    On All The Other Dark Pokemon It States Dark Before The Pokemon's Name.

    Does Anyone Know If This Was Intentionaly Done, Or Was A Mistake And Was It Corrected Or Just Left As It Is?

    2. On Dark Arbok (Both Holo And Non-Holo) The Copyright Date Reads "1999-23000". It Should Read "1999-2000". I Have Read A Statement From WOTC Saying That "This Will Be Corrected In Futre Printings", But All The Cards I've Seen Have This Error.
    Does Anyone Know If This Was Corrected?

    3. Dark Rapidash Hasn't Got The Word "Length" On The Card. Again WOTC Says That This Will Be Corrected, But All The Cards I Have Also Have The Error. Does Anyone If This Error Was Corrected?

    It was not intentional, they just missed the word Dark when they laid out the card. To the best of my knowledge, it was never corrected. It would be interesting to know if they corrected it when the card was made in Japan.

    Thanks For Letting Me Know, And I Think That They Would Have Corrected It For The Japanese Version

    There Are Loads Of Error Cards Out There, Theese Are Just Some That I've Got And Are Suposed To Have Been Corrected. I Just Can't Find Any Of The Corrected Cards, And Wondered If Anyone Had Any Evidence Of Them Being Corrected.
    Thanks Anyway

    I cannot recall one error card from WOTC that was ever corected in future printings. Oh wait just one, the dark vileplume with the fighting weakness.

    When Looking On The Internet I Found A Statement From WOTC Saying That "It's Not Our Policy To Change Cards That Will Effect Gameplay, Unless The Card Is Unplayable As It Is".
    This Means That The Dark Vileplume With Fighting Weakness, Should Be Played With A Weakness To Fighting And Not Fire.

    So The Cards That Were Meant To Be Corrected, Havn't Been, And The Card That They Said Wouldn't Be Changed, Has Been? :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Am I Getting Some Bad Info, Or Is This True? Could Someone Confirm What Ice'Cold Is Saying?
