do u have to have at least 3 basic energy and 3 pokemon in ur discard pile to play this card? cuz it didn’t say “up to” so yeah im a bit confused
You need to have at least 1 Energy or 1 Pokemon, and you must take as many as you have (up to 3).
six cards from your discard into your deck? Sounds like this would be useful against mill decks, especially if you have pokemon that can bring things back from the discard pile
I’m not sure if it’s a typo because some cards have unorthodox set numbers, e.g. “(Unleashed TWO/96)”, “(Aquapolis 146/147)”, but Undaunted says “74/90” on the card. If it’s indeed a typo, I don’t know if all cards from the Undaunted set have this error.
Am I correct in assuming that the “Search your discard pile” and “Show [those cards] to your opponent” phrases have been discontinued on newer cards that put cards from a player’s discard pile into their hand, because it’s redundant to include “show them”, due to the discard pile being public knowledge, and “Search your discard pile” is just unnecessary long text?
Yep, this is an error! All Undaunted cards were listed out of 91 but it should be 90. This is now corrected. For the cards with odd numbering (like the Alph Lithographs), the template by default still prints the “out of” number. I may go through and make exceptions for specific cards at some point.
I guess technically it’s redundant to include the extra text and TPCi is generally trending toward less words to say more, but I think there’s still an unwritten expectation that the retrieved cards are clearly shown to the opponent. (Maybe someone else with better knowledge on this can chime in.)
> Yep, this is an error!
In that case, I remember seeing some other misnumbered sets when I first discovered this site. I’ll see if I can find them.

I’ve noticed that other companies also do this if their game is as old as Pokemon. Here’s an example from Konami’s Yugioh, “Draw X cards from the top of your deck” is now “Draw X cards”, and “(Shuffle your deck afterward)” isn’t included anymore because everyone knows to shuffle their deck after they looked at it (unless stated otherwise by the individual card).
I was playing tournaments by the time this card came around, and I can confirm that that’s indeed the case. It makes sense, as if you weren’t to show them, the opponent in knowledge of your discard pile, would be able to guess them checking your pile again after you play the effect (though it would be more time consuming and difficult as the game goes on).
Usually the only exception to not show a card is when you search for any card in the deck, as the opponent doesn’t know the content of the deck, and doesn’t need to check the type of card you take from it.
