Are these cards legit?
1 Attachment(s)
I read the sticky post on fake cards, and I am not sure about these two. I can not tell them apart form the back side, so only including the front. I added one card from our Green Tornado theme deck for comparison. I got these from a "top seller plus" on ebay as part of a larger purchase. They look completely different then any other Pokemon card I own.

Those are legitimate cards. They're just from a far older TCG era than your Black & White cards are. The left one is from Base Set 2, printed back in 2000. The middle one is from Neo Destiny, printed in 2002.

He's right, I have whole stacks of these in my drawrs from when I was little.

Ah! Okay! Thanks! I thought I was being careful where I got things from. :) They seller threw them in as a bonus so I did not know about them till they arrived.

I also noticed that the same Pokemon can have different powers and different art sometimes?

Oh yes. There are several Pokemon with several different card versions, even in the same set.

If the name is the exact same, they do count as the same Pokemon for card limit purposes.
