Talk:Pokémon LV.X (TCG)

I am trying to get some Pokemon cards for my son for Christmas. He is only 7 years old and is really rough on his cards, so I am not keen on spending $20/card to get collector quality cards.

From the post on the previous page, it sounds like the Level X cards are no longer available from normal retail outlets, but I just did a goggle search and it looks like there are some level X 2009 tins available from Amazon. My son is pretty smart and figures that since Santa can make only the specific cards he is looking for that his parents wont have to spend money buying tins with extra cards to get him the one in the tin that he wants!

Can someone please help me make a little boys Christmas wish come true by providing a reasonably price supplier for these cards.


Pokémon LEGEND cards have yet to be released in the US, thus why LV.X is still being released. Aside from that, sir, you would be best off bringing this request to the forums, where I'm sure someone will be able to assist you in finding cards for your son. Best of luck. 梅子 15:51, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Level X in Roman Numerals

It's just a small point but maybe Nintendo should have considered that X is 10 in Roman numerals. Obviously, Lv.X Pokemon are not on level 10. Bttsstewart 10:03, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Unrelated, really. X just indicates a far higher-levelled, far stronger Pokémon than any Pokémon that do have a Level. Cipher (Talk) 11:17, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

So...level off-the scale? Cool! But, Pokemon in the games are forbidden from going above lv100 outside of hacks. Does this mean the TCG and RPG have different 'rules' to follow? Bttsstewart 14:58, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

The TCG, I wouldn't say so. LV.X doesn't indicate a level over 100, it just indicates that the Pokémon is considerably stronger than the card from which it levelled-up (which does have a designated Level). It's like Pokémon-ex: designed to give the TCG a seriously powerful Pokémon variant. Cipher (Talk) 17:52, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

technically it does imply breaking lvl 100, but only for arceus, due to the fact that all arceus cards are level 100.Ronin256 23:44, 29 August 2010 (UTC)


I'd actually argue that the Pokémon LV.X mechanic is only a replacement for Pokémon-ex. Aside from the illustration leaving the box (which doesn't really count), they don't relate to Pokémon Star in any way. I'd argue that they were just phased out until alternate-coloration Pokémon returned in Stormfront. This is why I've removed the part about Pokémon Star being replaced, but if anyone disagrees, feel free to put it back or comment. Cipher (Talk) 10:29, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Benching a Lv.X

If a Lv.X Pokémon is benched, does it remain Lv.X? I think this information should be included just to clarify. ~ Serial Colour 21:41, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
