Ishihara's House (Japanese: Mr.イシハラの家 Mr. Ishihara's House), initially displayed as ??'s House (Japanese: ??の家 ??'s House) in the first game, is a location found in Pokémon Trading Card Game and its sequel, Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!.

In Pokémon Trading Card Game

In Pokémon Trading Card Game, this house is initially empty and its name is displayed as "??'s House". According to a note written on a bookshelf in his house, Ishihara has left to search for rare cards called Phantom Cards. In the Virtual Console release, the player character is no longer able to interact with the bookshelf because the Phantom Cards have become unavailable due to the lack of Card Pop!.

Talking to any of these people causes Ishihara to become available at his house:

  • The Woman near the potted plant at the corner of the east room of the Rock Club.
  • The Lad near the potted plant at the corner of the east room of the Science Club.
  • The Chap near the PC at the east room of the Fire Club.

Once the player saves and resets the game, then talks again with any of the three people mentioned above, Ishihara becomes available to trade cards and the name of his house changes to "Ishihara's House". After each trade, the player has to save and reset the game and talk to any of these three people once more if they want to trade with Ishihara again.

If the player defeats the three Club Members of the Grass Club, the Club Master Nikki appears at Ishihara's house. If the house's name was still shown as "??'s House" and Ishihara was still unavailable, the full house name appears and Ishihara becomes available at this point.

These two trades can be completed at any time:

This last trade can only be completed after the player defeats the Grand Masters and the Champion at the end of the game:

After Ishihara trades these three cards, Ishihara leaves the house again and does not return. The aforementioned Woman from the Rock Club and the Lad from the Science Club say that Ishihara has left in search of a rare card.

Ronald can be found here, strengthening his deck, after the player has defeated him for the final time.

In Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!
