Number of Locator Cards[edit]

It is mentioned in the article that there are potentially more than 48 Locator Cards in the anime, due to the fact that Jean-Claude Magnum had five. While I do wholeheartedly believe that there are more than 48, I would like to point out that there is no evidence of such. We know that Joey Wheeler got his last locator cards from Mako Tsunami, Yugi Muto and Seto Kaiba got theirs from Lumis and Umbra, Odion and Marik Ishtar got theirs offscreen (although Odion got all 12), Mai Valentine got hers offscreen (but we do see them), and Ryo Bakura got his last ones from Bonz. This leaves Ishizu Ishtar, the one finalist who we don't know where she got them from. While the other seven finalists are all accounted for at the time of Jean-Claude Magnum's appearance in the show, Ishizu is not. At the time, only 42 Locator Cards had known holders, and Jean-Claude Magnum's five cards raise that number to 47. It is entirely possible that Ishizu had the 48th locator card at that point and won the other five off of Jean-Claude Magnum (either all at once like Bakura did or in five separate duels). If this is the case, then there are only 48 Locator Cards. As such, I argue that Jean-Claude Magnum's locator cards cannot be used to ascertain that there are more than 48. This being the case, I am removing the statement from the article. -- (talk) 02:41, August 26, 2012 (UTC)
