Why wasn't this set well recieved? - unsigned comment from Duked (talkcontribs)

I guess because they're less valuable reprints of old cards that most people already had. :P --ZestyCactus 01:08, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
From what I remember, it was because there really wasn't much reason nor purpose to it. Unlike in Magic where Base Set reprints are used for tournaments, there was no Modified format for this to be used in. This is, as opposed to when Legendary Collection was used, when LC-reprinted cards WERE used in Modified. It's a damn shame that Nintendo doesn't do something like this--make a reprint set to populate the Modified format with useful utility cards and other "functional reprints"... -- Nick15 00:40, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
