    OK, so the new TMvTA set seems to be moving away from the E-reader. The only cards that have e-reader stripes are cards that were released in Japan in earlier sets/promos.
    Soooo... what level are they? Where's their Flavor Text?

    Many of the players of the game might not care about these things, but there are some that love these parts of the cards and missed them when they were hidden by e-code. Now, they're just gone!

    maybe they forgot them...
    Anyway, where's the beef?
    maybe there's a shortage of miltank's....

    true, but most of the cards in the TM/TA are each teams sets, and Im sure the e-ready has the info on the normal Pokemon and not the info for the team ones. Im sure we will see the dot code back with the next sets.

    Hmm just a thought to go along with the speculation... if you look at the World Championships logo, the -e is also missing...

    I don't think the e-reader "has" any info of any kind. It's what it says it is, a reader. The info is in the dot code.

    You know now that you have said something I have not see a e-reader in the stores in a couple of months. I was looking for one at a couple of wal-marts and they didnt have them.

    DMTM said those dots were very expensive...
    Big World Championship or Dots????
    Which would you pick if you had to decide?

    It's not that point...
    The missing "e" in the Worlds logo is due to the fact that both Europe and Japan don't have dot-codes in the ADV/EX series.
    So it's useless to make a Worlds logo with the "e", cause in the biggest part of the World, is not Pokémon-e TCG, but only Pokémon TCG.

    The missing dot codes don't supply any changement on the booster packs though.. we still have 9 cards at the same price, without dot-codes. Where's the beef?

    I miss flavor text. I have no idea what most of the Pokémon are now. I don't play GameBoy. I really don't have time to sit there and scan cards to find out the interesting facts. I'd love to have flavor text back.

    Oh and Walrein, Claydol, Sealeo, Absol, Jirachi, & Spheal have not been released with Dot code. What is a Claydol?

    I'd like to see the flavor text back too. It was fun reading it after opening a new pack.

    maybe they used that money for the dot code for the Team Magma and Team Aqua mats just a thought but it shouldn be around the same price since the mats use alot of ink, paper and desine

    My hypothesis on the lack of dot-codes is because the Magma/Aqua background were new and maybe NOA didn't have enough time to Westernize the backgrounds... so all they did was take the Japanese backgrounds and yellowed up the borders. That's all.
