How to Use Counters, Coins & Dice | Pokemon

Hi, I’m Joe D’Andrea, a Pokemon professor at Comic Cafe in Warren New Jersey, and we’re here to show you how to play the Pokemon trading card game.

In the Pokemon trading card game, we use counters for damage and coins to flip during the game, but did you know there is a better way?

Dice are the ultimate multi-taskers. These are great. They are used in tournaments and league play all over. Here’s how they work. With dice, one pip equals ten damage, so if you place two sixes on a Pokemon, that’s 6+6 for 120 damage.

When used as coins, it’s even easier. Heads is even, and tails is odd. So if you want to flip 3 coins, just roll three dice. If you get even, even, odd, it’s two heads and a tail. It’s just that easy. You can often get dice at your local league, or your comic book, or game shop. Damage counters, or dice, should be placed over the image on the Pokemon card. That way you can still read the text.

    What, I don't understand at all

    If it said on a card like 60+ damage on it and I rolled 2 dice and they both landed on 2 so it was 4 and it's even, does that mean that the attack did 70 damage?
