There is a Pokemon retailer search engine. The only problem is for the last couple of days it has come up blank.

We are trying to find 250 sealed 11(?) card packs of Pokemon cards or 250 gold egg Pokemon cards(these things come in a plastic egg about the size of a softball). We want to use these as door prizes at our Breakfast with Santa on December 4th.
