Which chain? Or was it a local? Trying to figure out terms to look up the cards by.

    I was working for Regal Cinemas. They sent the one set of those cards. They were supposed to be a prize or giveaway promotion thing. That's all I can remember. We never did the promo, mostly because our General Manager took all the money from the safe and bought a minivan. He resigned the next day. Anyway, yeah it was from the first movie and I have never seen any other cards like them ever. I've been looking for almost 20 years, to me, these are the Sasquatch of Pokemon cards.

    Can't find a damn thing on them anywhere, as search results are currently being crowded out by limited showings for the new Pokemon! I Choose You movie.

      Hi! Welcome to PokeCommunity. I've merged your thread into the appropriate thread for these questions.

      However, I am going to need more details than "Card from 2002, Meowth, with a firework pattern in the background". That tells me very little. Are there any symbols on the card itself? Like a medal?

        Hi all. So I was going through my Pokémon collection from when I was a kid and I stumbled upon these white stat cards. Now I've looked up and searched everything I can think on Google in an attempt to identify these cards with no luck. Does anyone have any idea?

        Thanks in advance!

          So I have a 2005 Deoxys 16/107 Card that looks to be part of a set that had the name ""EX Deoxys" on the pictures of everything. The only problem is I can't find the card ANYWHERE on the internet to sell it. Please help. I have the pictures of the one that I have. The one I have, has a small "EX" before a bigger "Deoxys" in all caps on the picture of Deoxys itself.

          Hi, welcome to PokeCommunity! I've moved your post to the appropriate thread for these types of questions.

          I have legit never seen those before? Do you remember getting them from anywhere special? Or does anyone you know remember getting them from anywhere special?

          Hi, welcome to PokeCommunity! I've moved your post to the appropriate thread for these types of questions.

          Basically, what you have there is an alternate holo Deoxys from EX Deoxys. Alternate holos from the era the EX Deoxys set is from had a the card art background holo and then put the set logo from the outside of the packs in the bottom right corner of the card art box. Worth about the same as the non-Alternate holo version, really.

            Thanks Donavannj! Sorry I didn't realize there was a thread for this. But I had gotten this binder from a garage sale from when I was little. It appears to me that they go along with one of the first gen pokemon games considering that on the back of the cards it shows where to find them on the map. But other than that I have no clue. I've looked up any terms I can relate to the card and have come up with nothing so far.

              I have here a first edition holo 8/102 Machamp. I was wondering what the value is due to the misprint that can be seen just under the resistance. It's noticeably a misprint because the error appears under the letter "r". Also, the coloring is the same exact texture as the card, and matches the yellow trim of the card. Please let me know what you think!

              The thing is, I got all 3 first gen games back in the day and none of my cartridges came with anything like that. They do look like the stat charts that the game manuals came with except the ones in the game manuals were on a tan page rather than in card form.

              The value is actually less than the normal version because that factory defect looks very much like a paint spill or a water spill stain on the card, unless you get very lucky with your buyer. That particular version of Machamp (the shadowed Base Set Machamp) is worth about $5 normally, so yours would be worth $3 to $4 to most people.

                So I have a 2005 Deoxys that I can't find anywhere on the internet. All I find is the same card without the name and its not a silver rare star like this. If you could help me identify it that would be great thanks!

                I, uh, actually answered your question for this on the last page of this thread after moving your posts into this thread (specifically, this post: https://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=9797096&postcount=222) .

                I'll repeat what I basically said in that post, though: It's an alternate/reverse holo version of the Deoxys you keep finding on the internet. Sets released around the time of EX Deoxys had their "reverse" holos as an alternate holo pattern like in the picture. Your best bet for searching is using "reverse holo EX Deoxys 16/107". It's the reverse holo of one of 3 Deoxys cards from EX Deoxys .

                      Hey, I'm just curious about this card I have with a misprint on it.

                      Altaria 12/106 from the Great Encounters set

                      My card says "Evolves from Loudred", when clearly it should say "Swablu". I was just curious if this might be worth anything. I can't seem to find documentation of this misprint anywhere online!

                      Thank you!

                      Sounds like a fake/counterfeit, based on the "Evolves from Loudred" bit on it. Especially because you can't find anything about it online. An error that big on an officially released card would have been noticed and logged by now.

                      Do you have pictures you could upload as attachments of it?

                          Thanks for the replies guys. Sorry I havent gotten to mess with them lately. Been busy. Looks like I'll send in a foil or two and see what they get graded at so I can compare them to the others and get a good guess what the remaining ones would grade as well.

                          I'll keep it updated here. Will be interesting to see what happens.

                            How much is a Gem Mint Shining Genesect 9/73 worth? It's in perfect condition, PSA graded

                              Found some of my old cards, are any of these worth anything?

                                Hello! I’ve been collecting cards for a while now, and I was recently told that I had a rare card. A 2012 holo charizard 136/135. I know it’s not fake as I got it from an official Pokémon card pack, but I’m not super sure on it’s worth?

                                  So I've gone through my old collection of cards from when I was a kid and came across shadowless Charizard from the base set (4/102). I'm wondering if anyone thinks the condition of the card is worth getting it graded and, what your guess on what the grade would be.

                                  I know it is not in mint condition but even those with a low grade go for a few hundred and it seems like the condition is the biggest factor on how much its worth. Its also possible I may be posting in the wrong community and you may know of one that could help me out more.

                                  P.S. yes I'm 100% confident it is not a fake. I very well remember when the game first came out buying a starter deck and 2 booster packs and my Charizard came from one of those.

                                  Well, I only ever ask or suspect it's a fake if I see symptoms of what would be a good indicator about counterfeiting, and I don't see any signs of that here.

                                  So, for your non-first edition shadowless Base Set Charizard, it seems to be worth about... $25. At least that's where I'd peg it with the fraying at the edges. Last couple listings for the card on eBay don't seem to show any fraying and went for $35.
