Instead of using the Advanced Search, you can directly type an advanced query into the search bar. This gives you a few additional options, and is usually faster than working with the graphical form.

Tip: You can press / on your keyboard on any page to instantly focus the search bar.

This page lists all the different options you have when using the advanced card search.

General

If you query multiple fields in one query, cards that match all of them are returned.
Example: type:supporter is:fa returns cards that are a supporter and full art.

You can enter multiple terms for a single field, seperated by a comma, to get cards that match either of them.
Example: is:rapid,single,fusion returns cards that have either the Rapid, Single or Fusion Strike label.

If you want to query for cards that match multiple terms of one field, you can seperate them with a + instead.
Example: is:fusion+aa returns cards that have the Fusion Strike label and are an Alternate Art print.

You can prepend a search with to negate the condition.
Example: t:pkmn -is:v,gx,ex returns all Pokémon that are not a V, GX or EX.

Card Text

text:

Matches any text that appears in a card’s ability / attack names or effects.

If you are searching for multiple words, either wrap the text in double quotes, or replace spaces with underscores.

When using double quotes, the text search treats every word in your search term as an individual keyword, i.e. every space is equivalent to the + operator. When using underscores, the search term in treated as one keyword, so only text that contains the words in the exact order, with no other words in between, is matched.

You can prepend the search with ! to return exact matches only, i.e. the name or effect on a card must match the search exactly and contain no other words.
