Artwork: 10/10 - It looks amazing, its floating in the air and then the water background looks nice too.
Playability: 7/10 - If Selfdestruct didn't kill Electrode, it would be a good move. But Electribeam is pretty good, one energy and it can paralyze. Nice.
Collectability:7/10 - Japanese . Pretty nice, considering lots of Japanese cards are hard to find online.



Spoiler:

[One of my favorite cards , I wish I had it ]

Exeggcute


Sap Sipper
If this Pokémon is in your discard pile, you may place it in your hand.


Seed Bomb 20

I think you are unaware that that Exeggcute card is in the Plasma Freeze expansion, not sure what else you were thinking...

Artwork: 10/10 Shiny Exeggcute (Would give it a 9/10 since this isn't the Plasma Freeze one, but that doesn't matter. does it?)
Playability: 10/10 Approved by the official company.
Collectability: 102/10 (That's not a typo, since this is an uncommon in the Plasma Freeze expansion, then this will be a trophy card in Plasma Blast.)

Oops, shouldn't've used the Leaf Stone on it, ooops, too late.

Collectibility: 7/10. It's an e-set rare, which makes it fairly rare, but doesn't boost its value a whole lot.
Playability: 4/10. Its attacks are very expensive, even for the era it is from.
Artwork: 7/10. Such a strange and intriguing piece of art it has. There's crop circles in the background!

Now time for a CoroCoro Cubone promo:



Spoiler:
Look for Bone
If Cubone doesn’t already have a Bone counter on it, put a Bone counter on it.

Bone Killer 10+
You may remove a Bone counter from Cubone. If you do, this attack does 30 more damage.

Sorry, here to keep the game going, and you should too.

Anyway, this Cubone could do good in its time, unless the boneyard is empty. I mean, 40 damage for 1 emergy, if Cubone has a bone, but none-of-the-less, it only does 10 damage otherwise, so I'll give it a...

Playability: 5/10
Collectability: 8/10
Artwork: 5/10

Next up is Marowak. Please do not give a 1 for Collectability, you trolling monkeys!

Artwork: 5/10 The background is mostly green and yellow, but it does have a tropical atmosphere.
Playability: 8/10 A lot of HP but weak attacks. There's the chance of Paralysis and Confusion can be extremely annoying if the odds are in your favor.
Collectability: 9/10 A first edition Jungle card is definitely a collectible.

What's next? A Koffing from one of my favorite sets: EX Ruby & Sapphire

ZOMG! Pokemon-sma!

Artwork: Flagged for copyright purposes
Playability: Flagged for copyright purposes
Collectability: Flagged for copyright purposes

Now for an unrelated card to get past this, Rhyhorn! #111!

Oooooh, it's a special card, not the normal version.

Artwork: 7/10. Great action shot!

Playability: Meh. 5/10. Big HP for a Basic from that era, but kinda weak even still.

Collectibility: 4/10. It may be a reverse foil, but it's still a common.

EDIT: Forgot Rhydon!

Artwork: 7/10 Rhydon's style looks somewhat out of place with the background's style. It still looks nice, however.

Playability: 6/10 Average HP, Horn Attack has a low energy cost. Rock Tumble will be useful if you have some Double Colorless Energy cards in your deck.

Collectibility: 7/10 Rare, but I have a couple of these lying around. I gave it an extra point because it's hard to find ex Emerald in stores.

I wanted to keep the ex Emerald train rolling, but there's no Chansey


_____'s Chansey

Lucky Egg
Flip a coin. If heads, draw two cards. If tails, shuffle two cards from your hand into your deck. (If you have fewer than 2 cards, shuffle all of them into your deck.)

Lucky Punch 10+
Flip a coin. If heads, this attack does 10 damage plus 30 more damage.

Your Chansey...

Artwork: 9/10
Playability: 1/10 (Luck based, I mean, they replaced the slots with Voltorb Flip outside of Japan back in 2010)
Collectability: 10/10 (A true collectors item in and out of Japan.)

This is the only Tangela worth posting here. Tangela from EX FireRed and LeafGreen.

Artwork: 7/10 It's a nice Arita drawing, but the background is so dark and plain.
Playability: 8/10 If the odds are on your side, then this card will do massive damage. It was also very useful in my TCG video game.
Collectability: 9/10 A rare holo from the Jungle set. Definitely a collectible.

Next up is Horsea. I picked this one because I have the Kingdra ex that starts out as this Horsea :D

Hold your horses! We got ourself one with outstanding artwork! Horsea looks so cuuuuuute!

Artwork: 8/10
Playability: 3/10
Collectability: 3/10 (Common but old.)

Up next, seadra!

What type is this? It appears to be of the orange color, but it is weak to yellow. Could it be a new type?

What? Are you blabbering about Delta Species?

Playability: 4/10 For a stage 1 Pokemon, it's pretty weak. But Smokescreen can win you battles with enough luck.
Collectability: 5/10

Artwork: 8/10 I love the clay cards (at least I think it's made from clay) and the waterfall gives it extra points
Playability: 2/10 Possibility of 20 damage at max, and only 40 HP, a weakness, and no resistance...
Collectability: 4/10 It's common but is hard to find in stores these days.

I couldn't resist with the cruise ship in the background ^_^

Now for mine

How appropriate, Misty has a Staryu in other canon as well, like in the games.

Artwork: 5/10 Sugi-artwork but hypnotic background.
Playability: 6/10 Base Set with added effect. Nice, 1 energy and return to hand on coin flip.
Collectability: ●/10

Yeah, ● isn't a number but I couldn't give a number for collectability.

Now it's time to reach for the stars, with the evolved form!



Remember, NO FAKE CARDS!

Artwork: 6/10 I like how the picture implements its Core Stream attack. My only problem is the plain blue background. I know it's underwater but there could at least be bubbles or something.
Playability: 7/10 Confusion is more annoying in the TCG than it is in the video games. Core Stream is weak but it can harm more than one Pokémon.
Collectability: 8/10 It's rare and is from Neo Revelation. I find all cards from Gen. 1 and 2 very valuable.

Now we're onto one of my least favorite Pokémon...


Translation:

Mr. Mime 70 HP


Bench Barrier
Prevent all damage done to your Benched Pokémon by attacks.

Psy Bolt 20
Flip a coin. If heads, the Defending Pokémon is now Paralyzed.

Artwork: 9/10 I like how in the artwork, Mr. Mime is creating a barrier which is probably a reference to the ability the card has.
Playability: 5/10 Bench Barrier can be good against moves that hurt your benched Pokemon but Psy Bolt only does 20 damage for 2 energy cards, but it does have a chance of Paralyzing.
Collectability: 3/10 It is a pretty common card from Japan's Spiral Force set but Japanese cards are harder to find.

Scyther up next!

Collectability: 8/10

Now for a favourite of mine!



Spoiler:

Poké-BODY
Stages of Evolution
しんかのしるし
As long as Jynx is an Evolved Pokémon, prevent all effects of opponent's attacks, except damage, done to Jynx, and Jynx has no Weakness.

Freeze Light
いてつくひかり
Flip a coin. If heads, the Defending Pokémon is now Paralyzed. If tails, the Defending Pokémon is now Burned.

Pure Power
ヨガパワー
Put 4 damage counters on your opponent's Pokémon in any way you like.

Playability: 8/10 Freeze Light guarantees a status condition and Pure Power can be used effectively against weak benched Pokémon. To add to that, Stages of Evolution can be extremely helpful.
Collectability: 7/10 ex Unseen Forces was always hard to find in stores (for me at least) and it's a rare.

Speaking of Stages of Evolution, here's something similar:
