Let’s see if we can do one of these internet staples and have it not devolve into arguments.
Post an opinion you have about a Pokemon Card that you think is an unpopular one. You may find out others think the same thing.
Try not to respond with “I don’t think X card is worth X” that’s a bit too easy and is a topic for another thread.
Charizard Gold Star is the ugliest Gold Star card, and just an ugly card overall.
Probably not gonna get much support for this, but I’m personally not a fan of the e-series Crystals. The artwork doesn’t feel very out of the ordinary for secret rare chase cards; you’d think that a “crystal” card would actually have a crystal Pokemon on it like the crystal Onyx in the anime or something. Better yet, they should’ve just made more Shinings.
This ^. Most of the trophy cards have low production numbers and are worth a lot. Most of the art work isn’t that great. They have that vending machine/kid Illustrator look. I’d they were drawn by a kid I’d be impressed. It seems like they went through the garbage pile when they needed a new design .
Many of the cards from the last decade seemed to rely more on flash as opposed to quality art. FAs especially failed miserably. Some can be so ‘busy’ you need to look closely jst to decipher what character it may be.
The new Pikachu mega campaign and all Pikachu full arts are terrible, I’m tired of seeing a Pikachu dressed up in eighty different costumes and calling them all special cards. To quote @pottsinator, f*%k Pikachu.
Charizard is boring.
Base Set is way overhyped. The artwork is (no pun intended) basic and uninteresting, everyone and their dog collects it, and it’s not a rare set at all.
I agree and disagree. If say the majority of the art on both the exs and Full arts is lack luster. Some like Tyranitar and Charizard are basically look here I am, buy me. What’s even more sad if you think about is the artwork if the previous era. They didn’t have the full card to work with.
Sugimori and Arita’s work on the base Alakazam and Venusaur/Charizard respectively was nothing short of brilliant/breathtaking. Considering it was a child’s game card inaugural release in 1996 the overall work was groundbreaking.
Without the competent dedication to their craft of these pioneers, Pokemon would have never entered the realm of the iconic but would have wallowed away in the land of niche:)
