We use a bunch of 1, 2, and 3-character abbreviations for various things, some of which are official and some not so much; they've never been reviewed to try to minimize collisions AFAIK. Bold abbreviations are official, italic are semi-official, and plain are unofficial/specific to the wiki.

Sets[edit]

Most 2-character set prefixes are from Series 2 sets; only one or two are from sets released afterwards. The wiki has an in-house set of 1, 2, and 3-character abbreviations used for Series 1 sets (which have no official set prefixes), though these abbreviations were made in an ad-hoc manner (though not completely; an attempt was made to prevent collisions with Series 2 set prefixes, resulting in e.g. "B0#" being used for the Booster series since "B#" were the official prefixes for the Booster R series). Unless otherwise noted, all sets listed here are Japanese.

Editions[edit]

  • 1E - 1st Edition

Rarities[edit]

Some rarities have well-known and widely-used but unofficial abbreviations; the advent of the official card database introduced abbreviations for a number of rarities, some of which differ from the previously-used, unofficial abbreviations.

  • C - Common
  • SP - Short Print
  • SSP - Super Short Print (Tewart has stated this rarity doesn't exist)
  • NR - Normal Rare
  • R - Rare
  • SR - Super Rare
  • UR - Ultra Rare
  • ScR - Secret Rare
  • PR - Parallel Rare
  • UtR - Ultimate Rare

Other[edit]

It isn't normally as important to avoid collisions with these abbreviations, but we should still be mindful of them and avoid them where it can be reasonably managed.
