Is this card rare or carbage?

It is definitely fake. I've seen lots of cards like this at dollar stores. Sometimes they come in realistic-looking booster packs, but they also come in blatantly obvious fake boxes. The fonts are clearly wrong and there is far too much space between the HP digits. The back of the card is a bit too saturated, giving it more of a purple look. The back probably isn't as glossy as the front of the card and, as you tilt it in the light, the black parts probably reflect more light than the rest of the ink. If you hold it up to a light source, you'll be able to see through the card, which is one of the most well-known ways to tell if a card is counterfeit.
I have a holographic Slowbro card with over 400 HP, a Rhydon that evolves from Hippopotas, and a Zapdos named Zapdops. They aren't worth anything, but I keep them for LOLs.
As far as I know, the only OFFICIAL card to have had the wrong evolution icon was Base Set Wartortle (had a picture of itself in the evo box).
