    Shining Mewtwo? I would've expected Mewtwo ex...

    Anyway...
    Artwork: 8/10
    Playability: 6/10 A staple to Shining cards in the G/S era...
    Collectability: 10/10 I mean, it a "Shining" Ultra Rare. Need I say more?

    Mew's back, with a night to remember.



    Thus ends the Kanto series. Onward to Johto with the next poster.

    Artwork 6/10. I like it, but it's simple.

    Playability: 6/10 for its era. It seems pretty flexible, but that's also some low HP for an ex era Pokemon.

    Collectibility: 8/10. It's a freaking ex from the Advance generation of the cards! It's not terribly easy to find.

    Chikorita is next!

      Artwork: 4/10 Nice Chikorita picture but what's with the ground ripples?

      Playability: 3/10 Unless you plan on evolving it, Chikorita won't last very long with 50 HP. Growl may work for weaker Pokémon but -10 damage isn't a lot.

      Collectibility: 6/10 It's common but how often do you come across Neo Genesis cards these days?

      A wild Bayleef appeared!

      Artwork: 7/10. Stylized, but interesting.

      Playability: 5/10. It's not great, but it could be worse.

      Collectibility: It's an Expedition card, which are hard to come by, but it's still and uncommon. 4/10.

      Bayleef has evolved into Meganium!

      Artwork: 9/10. I don't know why, but the artwork of Meganium seems to have something that bothers me from giving it a perfect score.

      Playability: 4/10 I would just keep it in the bench and use it's Poke-Power. (Don't actually remember if Poke-Power can be used in the bench, tho)

      Collectibility: 7/10. It's an ex card and it's still a final evolution.

      OOPS! xD

      Artwork: 4/10 Looks like a cheap painting, don't really like it.

      Playability: 4/10 Singe is okay, Quick attack too. Not a really viable card but it's alright.

      Collectibility: 2/10 Nothing really exquisite.

      Artwork: 7/10. I like it. It's cool, and a style not used frequently on cards anymore.

      Playability: 5/10. It's okay for the era as a Stage 1. It turns into the Typhlosion below, which is something decent and certainly playable.

      Collectibility: 5/10. It's an uncommon, but it's also a Delta Species, which makes it unique.

      Next up, Typhlosion!

      Artwork: 5/10 - it's cool but not very interesting and the purple background just doesn't fit Typhlosion, regardless of him being delta or not.

      Playability: 8/10 - very decent/playable card for casual play but probably wouldn't see too much use in competitive, a nice standard boss though.

      Collectibility: 7/10 - honestly not a clue, this was in the era I stopped having anything to do with the TCG, but based on what I've heard I imagine it's relatively quite collectable being a delta and a main starter; quite cheap though!

      Next up, an Oddish farmer!

      Artwork: 5/10 Totodile is cool looking and all, but it's kinda grainy. Maybe it's just the link that's bad.

      Playability: 2/10 Surf does only 10 damage? xD

      Collectibility: 2/10 Looks like a pretty common card.

      Artwork: 5/10. Boring Sugimori art.

      Playability: 4/10. It's a Stage 1 with an attack that costs 3 energy, which is a lot of energy for an attack of a Stage 1 back in its time.

      Collectibility: 4/10. It's an uncommon from Neo Genesis. It doesn't trigger much nostalgia for me.

      Feraligatr, you're up!

        Artwork: 6/10 follows the dark, 3D, and headshot theme of the Primes but that's not necessarily a good thing IMO

        Playability: 7/10 no drawbacks and basically takes two turns at most to knock out a card but nothing special

        Collectibility: 7/10 I still see many HG/SS era cards in stores but Primes are still hard to come by. I only have two ._•

        Ret's sent out the next card:

        Artwork: 10/10 - ahahah oh my god I love it. Look at the tiny cute little thing trying to act so tough and strong, it's beyond adorable.

        Playability: 4/10 - very standard for a basic Pokémon, nothing great, and as far as I remember the evolution is pretty poor - usable for casual games though.

        Collectability: -1/10 - is there anyone that doesn't own this card?

        Artwork: 6/10. Cute and all, but meh.

        Playability: 3/10. Just so outclassed by so many other Pokemon in its era because of its low HP and low damage.

        Collectibility: 2/10. It's a rare, but I've managed to end up with probably 7 or 8 copies of this and a few other "rares" from HGSS.

        Now into the night we go with an owl!

          Artwork: 7/10 Nice 2D illustration and a cheerful forest setting at night; perfect way to show off Insomnia :D

          Playability: 2/10 Nice Sleep prevention but could be 1HKO'd by a lot of staged Pokémon and a lot of basics that don't evolve. Peck is meh


          Collectibility: 6/10 HGSS Promo that I've never seen before. I'm assuming it's like the other promos from that set where you can see it through the plastic packaging and can still be found in stores.

          Noctowl's staying up all night with Hoothoot to get lucky rated:

          Artwork: 10/10 Is this a foil card? It would look so nice in foil.

          Playability: 7/10 It's Poke-Power is pretty useful to foreshadow what your opponent might play and it's attack is pretty good, but requires a bit too much energy for it imo.

          Collectibility: Not sure about this one, I'd give it a 5/10 if it ain't foil but if it is, I'll give a 7/10.
          ____________________________________________________________

          Artwork: 7/10. Happy Ledyba is great!

          Playability: 5/10 for its time. Not great for a basic, not bad.

          Collectibility: 6/10. It's from the Southern Islands set, and those cards can be hard to come by.

          Next up, Ledian!

            Playability: 5/10
            Collectability: 7/10

            Just to catch up with the thread, making up for a poster's accident, I'm gonna post 2 cards as opposed of 1. It's perfectly legal as I am the thread master, though I started it with my old account.

            Don't believe me? That's fine, but just to clarify, the first post was my own, under my old username before I switched accounts.

            Anyways, Spinarak and Ariados. You are not allowed to post 2 after this, only I can.




            Yeah Ariados is the Japanese Neo Destiny one, but who cares?

            Translation, to avoid breaking a rule
            Spoiler:
            {G} Entrap
            If your opponent has any Benched Pokémon, choose 1 of them and switch it with the Defending Pokémon, then flip a coin. If heads, the new Defending Pokémon is now Paralyzed.
            {G}{G}{G} Poison Bind
            30 Damage. The Defending Pokémon is now Poisoned. Flip a coin. If heads, the Defending Pokémon can't retreat until the end of your opponent's next turn and if the effect of an attack, Pokémon Power, or Trainer card would change that player's Active Pokémon, that part of the effect does nothing.

            Combo rate go!

            Artwork 5/10 and 5/10. A pair of boring pieces.

            Playability: 3/10 and 5/10. A pair of Pokemon with meh HP and expensive attacks that don't do as much as they could for their time.

            Collectibility: 2/10 and 3/10. A common and an uncommon, both from older sets. Meh.

            Go, Crobat!

              Artwork: 9/10... Looking scary, just how a bat should be.
              Playability: 9/10 It's PokePower will stop the opponent from playing ANY Pokemon from his or her hand, allowing an easy donk.
              Collectability: 2/10 (Can't say 1/10 due to being a Rare)

              Plug the fish in!



              Hmm.... it's sad to see this game be forgotten about. I hope someone catches on soon...

              Honestly, I thought this thread was going to kick the bucket before you posted I was thinking I might have to let it die and then reboot it.

              Artwork: 6/10. It's Sugimori art, but that's practically on everything Pokemon related.

              Playability: 4/10. That 50 HP does nothing to negate the fact that Supersonic is dependent on a coin flip and that Flail needs damage on Chinchou to even do damage.

              Collectibility: 4/10. It's a 1st Edition print, but it's still just a common.

                donavannj is right, this thread might hit the boot if people don't continue posting, otherwise, we'll have to start AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALL over from Bulbasaur.

                Anyway

                Artowrk: Fits the Pokepower nicely! 8/10
                Playability: Type changing engaged! 8/10
                Collectability: 6/10 Uncommon from Neo Revelation.

                #172 is Pichu.



                I tried a google search for Hs-Triumphant Pichu, and when I came up to this card, I posted it.

                Because Pichu is a Basic Pokemon, it can't evolve into Pikachu like in the main games, making me give this card a 1/10 for Playability. Since the BW-era, baby Pokemon have been removed all together and will never be printed on cards again...

                Collectibility: 4/10. It may be a rare, but I think I ended up with 6 of them.

                Playability: 7/10. Greate early turn disruption and setup for the era it's form.

                Artwork: 6/10. Goes great with the HGSS card style, but it's not something that stands out.

                Cleffa is up next!

                  Alrighty, my turn.

                  Playability: 6/10 It's a Basic with 30 HP, but it was a staple in decks during the 2011 season, with its move...
                  Collectability: 4/10 Junk Rare in Call of Legends. Aw jeez...
                  Artwork: 9/10 What a face

                  OK, Igglybuff, you next!



                  Did you know that Igglybuff and its evolutionary relatives are the only Pokemon with the type combination of Normal/Fairy? The rest of the Normal-types that became Fairy-type got completely changed to pure-Fairy, making the Igglybuff line unique.

                  That typing decision they did was very odd...


                  Playability: 5/10. Auto sleep, but Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff from its era aren't exactly things to write home about, so it's basically just there to stall.

                  Collectibility: 4/10. It's a Wizards Promo, but it's just Igglybuff. And Wizard's Promos are not worth very much at the moment since so many are in circulation.

                  Artwork: 8/10. Two Igglybuff playing. Looks like oodles of fun.

                  Up next is Togepi!
