    I was checking to see which blackstar promos I was missing on Bulbapedia
    and I saw N BW100 at the bottom of the list. I'm not sure how long it's been there, but it can't have been long.
    Anyway, apparently this card was a Pokemon League prize sometime this year, but I hadn't hear about it.
    Also, I can't find this card (the English version) anywhere on eBay, amazon, or any other card vending cite I can think of--not even UK sites like cardteam and Magic Madhouse. Does anyone know anything more about this elusive blackstar promo?

    This will be released later. It isn't released yet. Someone got it in their League supplies in their League Skylas. I would assume it's for the Fennekin Season starting in December.

    If this is true, that's awful. Unless we get much better consistency Pokemon in XY, N for another year is going to grate.

    Stop hating on N bro. He's awesome! (Both in the game and in card-form) ;)

    If we had better Supporters and draw options, then N wouldn't be so bad for the game.

    Rocket's Admin was a disruption option that could be answered with Pidgeot. N is a staple draw card with a tendency to screw people over.

    I disagree about in the games.

    My biggest fear is using an N T1. My friend and I have the curse of the T1 N where we draw into straight nothing.

    Reads the thread title and thinks about the Mew promo in the 3-pack blister because of not distributing it here in the US again apparently sigh...

    I can confirm the below statement...
    However, it wasn't just one person, several leagues have the N.

    I see, so unlike the 3-pack blister proms, we will be seeing N BW100 eventually.
    When I read this from bulbapedia:

    "This promotional print was eventually released as an English BW Black Star Promotional card given out at Pokémon Leagues during a currently unknown Season of the 2013-2014 League Cycle."

    I guess I was thrown off by the past tense "eventually released" and "unknown season." I thought its distribution had ended, and only a select few had it. But the past tense must be a typo and the unknown season makes sense if it has not been distributed yet.

    So I have this N, as I'm sure many others do by now. Do you guys think this means that N will still be in format after rotation?

    Depends. When they tell us what sets they rotate, they will also give the numbers of the promos that rotate too. That may or may not include BW100.

    I think he may just get the Juniper treatment and be reprinted by some dude from XY.

    It is a promo. At least at my league it is.

    It's the same artwork though, my league is on EHammers as well, pretty dope.

    I think he's asking if it's a Black Star Promo, meaning it'd stay in the format longer.

    No, I believe it still says it's from Dark Explorers. It does have the old style reverse like the N and Skyla, though.
