Artwork : 9/10 The action shot of the Electabuzz in the artwork looks cool and the background looks nice too.
Playability : 6/10 30 damage is a bit low for 2 energy cards, one having to be a fighting energy, but Power of Evolution can be useful since it lets you draw an extra card each turn.
Collectability : 4/10 It's a pretty common card from Dragon Frontiers.

Next is Magmar!

Magmar is.... an ex from that 2003 set. Unbelievable.

Artwork: 8/10 (CG graphics...)
Playability: 1/10
Collectability: 5/10

Sir, we got a bug here...



This is a real card. Even I thought this was fake at first, but it is indeed real, following the big rules.

Artwork: 6/10 It's better than anything I can draw, but many other cards have nicer artwork.
Playability: 7/10 If Armor can be utilized, then Pinsir will make up for its lack of resistance. Besides that, weak attack with high energy cost.
Collectability: 8/10 Rare and δ are a pretty good combination. I'm not too big on reverse holo, but many others are.

I had to take a trip to Route 38 to find this card:

Artwork: 5/10 The eye looks odd for a Pokémon and I'm not a fan of the art style.
Playability: 5/10 He's got decent HP but with weak/dangerous attacks and a high retreat cost, I'm not sure I'd ever want to use one.
Collectability: 6/10

Time for a fun one!

Giovanni having a Magikarp? Outrageous, especcially for the final Gym Leader in Kanto

Artwork: 1/10
Playability: 1/10
Collectability: 1/10 for Giovanni being OUT OF HIS MIND!

I had to SCREAM into Giovanni's ear to get him to evolve those stupid fish!

Artwork: 6/10 - ehh, it's decent enough but not wonderful
Playability: 3/10 - it comes from an awful Pokémon and has no remarkable power/risk-free attacks. The retreat cost is high and the HP is relatively low.
Collectability: 4/10

I've been loving this next card in my Water deck; let's see what you guys think!

Artwork: 8/10 Beautiful ocean background but not much else going on.
Playability: 7/10 It's in the current format and Water Arrow can be handy. Surf does decent damage.
Collectability: 6/10 It's uncommon and I can still find Next Destinies boosters in stores.

Yes, this is actually a Ditto...


If you can't read the text:
Spoiler:
Poké-POWER: Duplicate
Once during your turn (before your attack), you may search your deck for another Ditto and switch it with Ditto. (Any cards attached to Ditto, damage counters, Special Conditions, and effects on it are now on the new Pokémon.) If you do, put Ditto on top of your deck. Shuffle your deck afterward. You can't use more than 1 Duplicate Poké-Power each turn.

Smash Turn 20
After your attack, you may switch Ditto with 1 of your Benched Pokémon.

Artwork: 3/10. It's amusing, but for the same reasons that I also think it looks stupid. Ditto's face just simply does not go well with Squirtle's body, ahahaha.

Playability: 4/10. Cool mechanic in that Poke-Power, but it doesn't evolve in an era where the most powerful decks contained many evolutions.

Collectibility: 4/10. It's a common, but it's part of a unique group of Ditto cards.

EDIT: Whoops, forgot a card.

Ahh...... a game that has been gcompletely forgotten about. OK, keeping it going, I hope Jolteon gets posted after this...

Artwork: 1/10 Mitsuhiro Arita is like the Mark Thompson of the Pokémon TCG
Playability: 2/10 Energy accel for 1 Energy, but there are no Steel-type Eeveelutions.
Collectability: 2/10 Delta Species, but insanely common.

Riksing from the abyss is a Pokémon transforming with air! VAY-PORY-EON!

Except there totally was a Steel-type Eeveelution in EX: Delta Species. Five of them, in fact. See the Jolteon below for an example. Anyway, onto rating the Vaporeon posted.

Artwork: 6/10. Those eyes look a little funky to me.
Playability 5/10. Interesting, but completely outclassed in its time simply because of the existence of Luxray GL and Luxray GL Lv. X.
Collectibility: 4/10. It's a rare, but it's not from a presently sought-after set.

Artwork: 7/10 I like the electricity thing going on but that one leg looks twice as large as the other three...
Playability: 6/10 Nothing too powerful. I never really cared about Holon Energy cards. Return Spark is nice because you can easily do extra damage.
Collectibility: 7/10 I used to see ex Delta Species all over stores until a couple of years ago :( This card can be easy and cheap to obtain online, however.

I was going to do the Flareon from the ex Delta Species booster, but it's almost the exact same card... Here's a for everyone.

It's been a while before any further progress has happened. I wanted to post an Omanyte card, but in order to keep the game going, I can't, because I posted this... therefore, a brief review...

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

Porygon, your next. Someone upload an Omanyte soon...

Sorry about all of this... but just bringing this back to the running. Anyway, review of the previous card...

Artwork: 8/10 Fits the Type of the card
Playability: 7/10 Woo! Type changing is a real strategy for Delta Species
Collectability: 5/10 Common from EX Series.

Going over the top with Kabutops



This should mean Aerodactyl is up next...

Let's take this game out of the garbage...

Aerodactyl, the legendary pterodactyl pokemon with the wings of a thousand karats. It's ability functions as a free Energy Search, making this a Delta worth it.

Artwork: 5/10 It is the overused Mitsuhiro Arita...
Playability: 10/10
Collectability: 9/10

Did anyone forget the PokéFlute here?

Artwork: 6/10. There's been better and there's been worse, even among 5ban's own work.
Playability: 2/10. In theory it looks cool, but in practice that attack cost is far too high to be effective and that retreat cost is horrendous.
Collectibility: 5/10. It's a Team Plasma rare, but it's not foil and most Snorlax cards aren't very sought after.

Anyway, next up, Articuno!

Artwork: 4/10 Basically is an Articuno floating in a maroon wind tunnel? I would rate it higher if it were performing an attack.

Playability: 6/10 Darkness Veil can be useful against those who prefer effects over damage, but R's Articuno ex doesn't deal a whole lot of damage and is worth two prize cards.

Collectibility: 7/10 ex Team Rocket Returns? Yes please :3 I really like the Rocket's ex cards. I rarely found ex Team Rocket Returns booster when I first started collecting, which was the year when that set was released...

I'm going to continue the trend:

Artwork: 7/10. The lightning pattern in the holofoil gives the impression that Zapdos is flying around in a lightning storm it caused.

Playability: 6/10. It was a decent ex card for its era, but a lot of the evolution based ex cards in its time were just simply better than it. Raging Thunder also had a huge drawback.

Collectibility: 8/10. It's an ex from the Advance Generation, which these days are pretty hard to come by, and I do like how unique the card style for the Advance Generation cards happens to be.

Breaking the trend of Team Rocket Returns ex Pokemon, we'll travel back in time to the Gym Heroes set with Rocket's Moltres:

Art: 7/10. I like the coloring of the background, but it otherwise feels empty.
Playability: 4/10. It doesn't have very high HP, and none of the Dragonite cards from its era are terribly viable.
Collectibility: 5/10. It's a Dratini, but it's also from a mini-set, which are rare to get outside of Japan.

Onto Dragonair we go!

Art: 5/10. Cute, but lacking in detail.
Playability: 6/10. For the era it was in, it had a lot of HP, but it also had a very risky attack. Biggest reason to play it would have been for its Pokemon Power.
Collectibility: 5/10. It may be a movie-stamp promo, but it's also ridiculously common and very cheap on eBay.

Anyway, we're almost done with the Kanto Pokemon! Next up, Mewtwo!
