Heya PokePeeps! I’ve begun the road to acquiring every Japanese card that correlates to a trainer or any of the villainous teams, whether it be a gym leader, Elite 4 member, Frontier Brain, or an anime character… I’ll be scoopin’ em up one by one. Now at first this seemed a bit too simple, so why not make it interesting? Actual Pokemon cards only, no trainer cards because let’s be real, they got a whole card to themselves, the critters need to shine. How about we also spend a couple days looking at all the cards released throughout the years, and picking out the lucky few that has any human being in the artwork? Sounds like a blast. And there were more than I had thought thankfully, otherwise that would have been a very long and boring process I had just gone through. Without further ado, I will leave my spreadsheet link below so others can take a peep at what I’ve been working on.
I will also be progressively adding photos of what comes in for this rad collection of mine. Thank you for taking a look if you do, feel free to comment or leave any comments, additions, or criticisms if you so have any!
Trainer/Cameo Spreadsheet.I will also start this off by proudly showing the few I have graded at the moment.
Now Sneasel is my all time favorite Pokemon, so these are a great part of my collection, along with all the other graded Sneasel’s I have. But cmon, who couldn’t love this little guy?
This speaks for itself, both of these are also in my top favorite characters. This Umbreon is a huge deal to me not because of it’s value, but it was the first card I ever graded by myself at PSA. I was very hopeful to get an 8, but honestly would have been happy with a 7 if I’m being honest. So to get what I did on a random card I bought from someone in Japan was and still is a huge deal to me. On top of being my favorite Eeveelution of course.
Now these little fellas. Again, some of my favorites. Any guess why? To date, these dudes (I consider) are the closest Pokemon related to an otter that have been released. Sorry Oshawott fans, Samurott’s design killed the whole thing for me. Had it stopped at Dewott I’d be on board.
And finally (for now) the bigboi. If you don’t think this is the best Gyarados artwork ever you’re lying. And since we’re telling the truth here, I’ll go ahead and say the same for the Scyther. They don’t seem to be the ones you want to mess with at the moment, so just agree with me and enjoy the rest of your day.
That’s all I’ve got for now! But I have a nice stack of singles staring at me that will be getting posted up as I go! Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I will!
