Me, my son and his best friend are at a local Pokemon fair. They talk in tongues right now. I have no clue about V-Max, Shinies, Mystery packs and trading rules. I always find subcultures fascinating and I love to hang out in their small ecosystems, even though I don’t understand how the whole trading system and hierarchy of cardpacks work. Same as with other geek-subcultures, the people here are nice, friendly and positive, regardless of age and experience level.
