NINETALES

My favorite Pokemon is Vulpix.  Ninetales is the Stage 1 evolution of Vulpix.  I am surprised that it took me this long to come up with a pattern for Nintetales.  I have always been partial to Fire Pokemon ever since the game was introduced.  When my brother got involved with the trading card game, I became his training partner.  Of course, my first deck was centered around Fire Pokemon.  Of course, my brother’s Championship deck was centered around Water Pokemon since Fire Pokemon are weak to them.  This pattern includes the color lists for both Ninetales and Shiny Ninetales.
