  • Team Rocket blasting off again literally 800 something times too many
  • Whenever Ash gets in front of a murder beam and is saved by plot armor

It would have been better if Arita drew a pikachu with a paint brush as if it were painting it

Reminds me something
By the end of the 90s, MAD Magazine included some bootleg custom cards in one of their volumes … Those were extremely weird. Ironically, they’re kinda rare to find.
Psyduck is the best one

There is just so much going on here

I know you didn’t ask but here’s what makes me cringe about it. Literally every single thing about this pair of cards was designed to MAXIMIZE MONEY.

  1. Choosing the most hype card possible, even though Arita didn’t illustrate it and has nothing to do with it.
  2. Generic personalization “to VAN GOGH”.
  3. Forcing a Charizord into the sketch.
  4. Making the sketch a poncho Pikachu because poncho Pikachu = :dollar:, despite poncho Pikachu being Saitou’s thing and having nothing to do with Arita.
  5. Getting two of them.
  6. In the comments tagging PSA for the 10 10 grade.

It’s the embodiment of the Pokemon autograph “community” in one terrible image. Arita has literally nothing to do with any part of this card other than serving as a vehicle to maximize value.

Totally true … No wonder why many illustrators don’t want to sign Pokémon Trading Cards or other stuff related to Pokémon anymore …

How many fire emojis in the listing though?

Is this a real slab? Did PSA actually grade this? Why?

They have already been sold, there were no fire emojis in the listing. The first line of text was in caps though

That’s why it didn’t show up in my Saved Searches then. It’s gotta have “L@@K!” and at least three fire emojis for me.

Definitely cringe, and even Reddit thinks so too!
