Pokemon Cards Part 2

This is part two of the Pokemon card series. In the first part I showed some of my cards from the oldest Pokemon sets, here I have posted my cards from the 25th Anniversary Celebrations set. Like in the first post I will score each card's artwork with a rating out of five.

Pikachu, Surfing Pikachu, Flying Pikachu

First up are the pikachu cards. I like the surfing and flying pikachus, but the full art base set one is easily one of the best looking cards in the set. Flying and surfing Pikachu get a 4/5 rating each. The base set one gets 5/5.

Blastoise, Dark Gyarados, Professor's Research, Full Art Professor's Research

I have an original base set Blastoise that I awarded a 5/5 so it gets the same score here. Dark Gyarados doesn't have a great holographic effect, but the artwork helps make up for it. I'll give it a 4/5. Professor's Research looks like a fairly standard trainer card, 3/5. The full art version of Professor's Research gets a 4/5.

Zekrom, Yveltal, Dialga, Palkia

I'm not familiar with these newer legendaries. Yveltal's artwork is colourful and radiant, I give it a 4/5. The rest look fairly standard, I'll give them 3/5 each.

Ho-oh, Groudon, Xerneas, Reshiram

Nothing particularly remarkable about these ones I think. Nice artwork for these cards, but the holographic effects aren't so spectacular. I give each one a 3/5.

Cosmog, Cosmoem, Lunala, Solgaleo

These are also much newer Pokemon that are after my time. Cosmoem is probably my least favourite of these four but still gets 3/5. The others actually look pretty solid and have some good cute elements to them. I'll give the others a 4/5 each.

Greninja, Lugia, Zamazenta, Kyogre

Greninja is apparently an extremely popular pokemon and this one's artwork isn't too bad. 3/5. The rest of the cards here also get 3/5.

Golden Mew, Mew, Charizard V, Birthday Pikahcu

Although Charizard V isn't part of the celebrations set, I got it in one of the booster packs that came with my Celebrations box. It looks amazing too, I give it 5/5.

I always liked Mew and both the ones here look great. The normal one gets 4/5, the golden mew which I was lucky enough to get from my box gets a 5/5!

Finally there's Birthday Pikachu, an old school card which I always thought looked fantastic. 5/5.
