    Hey guys! This is my first time posting on here so I hope my images go through :^) I've had these cards for a couple of years now and no one on the internet is able to identify them. I just want to know their origin or where they came from haha. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

    I used google lens (a reverse image search) to find similar images, couldn't find anything at all. the weird thing is they look official, so it's probably some sort of lost media that no one has really documented.

    Hi! Thanks for the help :^) Yeah, that's what I was thinking... this has to be lost media. As I've mentioned in other forums, I've seen a select few of these on eBay/Mercari. I've messaged the seller on both sites and they're not sure where they're from either. It's such a massive mystery XD

    They look pretty similar to the KFC kids meal cards from 1998, but they're not quite the same.

    I'm thinking these maybe came with an official guide or something, or perhaps a promotional item. I can't find anything on them. The KFC cards (thought to be the earliest English pokemon card based product) are similar but these definitely aren't the KFC cards. The monopoly cards again are vaguely similar, but aren't these data cards. The Bandai Carddass cards, again, are similar (not visually, but in terms of the card content) but look completely different and are Japanese. You might have something unbelievably rare here.



    I think they probably came with this, or via another Nintendo Power product. Starting on page 66 you can see a gallery of the same backs but with the Sugimori artwork. But they're definitely the same layouts

    Hi! Thank you so much for the help! I came across that guidebook too and got excited for a minute, but when I searched for Nintendo Power cards... nothing comes up for it :^( I came across an eBay and Mecari listing with my cards (the eBay seller had an Eevee) and none of the sellers knew where they got them. I'll attach the links here if you want to check them out!

    Yeah i couldn't find anything under Nintendo Power Pokemon cards that matched these either. Other than the artwork though these are seemingly the same as the data cards displayed in the guide, which leads me to believe these still came from Nintendo Power at some point, but the sugimori art was replaced with the anime art. Perhaps as a promo for the TV series or the first movie or something.
