    Hello, this is the Card Collab Collecting Game. Not really a collection, but it works. The gameplay goes on in National Dex order. The first poster posts a scan of a Pokémon Card (it does not necessarily need to be a photo of a card you own.). If the scan is Japanese, or a different language, write an English Translation Spoiler under the card so the next poster can read it. The next poster gives the card a critique and gives ratings from 1 to 10 for Artwork, Playability, and Collectability.

    Here's an example of an acceptable critique.

    Quote:
    It's an excelent card. It only needs 1 Energy to deal 50 damage, and the Holofoil makes it a great collectable.

    Artwork: 9/10
    Playability: 9/10
    Collectability: 10/10
    Keep in mind that that was for an anonymous card. Fake cards are not allowed here.

    Anyway, after giving a critique, the poster, on the same post, posts a scan of a card of the next Pokemon in National Dex order, and so on, and so on.

    Now, to begin the game, the first Pokémon in National Dex Order.

    It's a run-of-the-mill Basic for Supreme Victors that didn't evolve into anything particularly effective during the time Supreme Victors was play legal, and it's a common to boot, so it's easy to come into 8 or 9 of these if you buy too many boosters, even with the massive size of the Supreme Victors set.

    Artwork 8/10
    Playability 3/10
    Collectibility 2/10

    Next up, Ivysaur!

      Ooh, rather dark. It has fewer HP than the Bulbasaur in the first post, but it's a promo none of the less...

      3D is always interesting, but not the best direction they could have gone with that. It was moderately playable, but its dual weakness made it very susceptible to some very dominant ex Pokemon that were play legal when EX: FireRed and LeafGreen was released, and its 5 energy attack cost for SolarBeam is pretty high, even for 90 damage. It is still an ex, though, and from a moderately quiet area within the TCG's history, so that certainly makes it collectible and hard to come by.

      Artwork 5/10
      Playability 5/10
      Collectibility 8/10

      And now for #4, Charmander!

      1 corlorless energy cost for scratch is pretty alright, but discarding a fire energy card for 30 damage isn't that good imo.

      Artwork 8/10
      Playability 4/10

      You're up next, Charmeleon!

      Artwork is pretty interesting. An action shot. It was quite playable back in its day for a Stage 1. The shadowless version isn't terribly common, and with the whole rest of the shadowless Base Set, it's a pretty nice collection piece.

      Next, up, Charizard!

        Is that a Shiny Charizard? Oh dear! Ridiculously rare and overpriced. It has no abilities, and the shiny reprint has a bit of an error, but it's Charizard nonetheless...

        Artwork: 10/10
        Playability: 9/10
        Collectability: 9/10

        Go, Squirtle!

        Artwork: 9/10 Reminds me of the Nirvana album
        Playability: 9/10 Bubble is pretty good for a colorless energy and Smash Turn isn't pretty bad neither. Like a Volt Switch

        Go, Wartortle!

        Action shots are always awesome. It evolves into a fun Blastoise to use. And It has the glorious HGSS era cards borders.

        Collectibility: 7/10


        Now for my favorite Blastoise card!

          Oh no, a Base Set 2! :( How awful. Anyway, I love that card. It's very nostalgic for me!

          Artwork: 10/10 I love the artwork on this card. <3 It's just...everything Butterfree is! idk
          Playability: 7/10 Not too horrible for its time, I don't think. I didn't play then, so eh.
          Collectability: 7/10 It's not too hard to get a hold of, and Base Set 2 is...icky to me. :/

          Artwork: 6/10 Looks like it's from a kid's book, not bad
          Playability: 4/10 If it lands on heads, the attack is pretty good, if not... you just wasted a turn..

          Your turn, Kakuna!

          ngl, I have never liked that Kakuna.

          Artwork: 6/10 It's just...strange to me. idk.
          Playability: 3/10 Two energy for 20 damage and possibility of poison is meh. Maybe that was okay back then? But still...seems a bit costly, especially that first attack.
          Collectability: 8/10 I'm biased...it's Base Set, I can't help it. Haha.



          ^ Won me a game tonight actually! :D

          It's artwork is alright. Reminds me more of DP era artwork instead of Advance era card art, though. It was solid for a Grass-type Stage 2, if it could survive the destructive fire-types of its era. Your card is a Japanese 1st Edition rare, so it's pretty collectible if you like Japanese cards.

          Artwork: 7/10

          That Pidgey looks like he doesn't care about anything lol

          Artwork : 7/10
          Playability : 5/10 it could be pretty good if it lands on heads, also has -30 resistance to fighting
          Collectibility : 5/10 It's from POP Series 4, but that Pidgey card is common.

          Next is Pidgeotto :D

          Another action shot. Would be nice if I could tell what move it's using, but it's still Sugimori art. Not the most playable Pokemon, though, with that low HP for a Stage 1 and those expensive attacks. It's still a first edition rare from Gym Challenge, however!

          Art: 7/10
          Playability: 3/10
          Collectibility: 6/10

          Next up is Pidgeot!

            Having fun without me? Hmph, anyway, that Pidgeot is weird beyond compare. I've never seen an electric-steel Pidgeot, but either way, it's a Delta-Species, you could see unusual typing like that, Electric-type Charmander, Fire-type Mankey, the list goes on.

            Artwork: 7/10
            Playability: 10/10

            Anyway, next up is Rattata, who is upset that you have been partying while I am asleep.

            Artwork is Sugimori artwork, but it's not doing anything. It's got low HP and an expensive second attack that it may not get to even use, so it's only really any good early on to give your Rattata an extra turn in play while you setup someone else, but it's easily beaten by Machop and Hitmonchan, two key elements of an early Haymaker deck. It's also just an uncommon.

            Artwork: 6/10
            Playability: 4/10
            Collectibility: 3/10
