I must admit, I was never a Pokémon card collector (definitely loved the games, though). I was more of a Yu-Gi-Oh boy myself, but things may have been different if the artist Lunambra had been designing the pocket monster cards. This fantastic artist has improved the decent designs of the cards, and made them absolutely gorgeous. The redesign is so great, you’ll want to own a Magikarp. Yeah, it’s that awesome.
As you’ll see in the images below, the art extends to the bottom of the card, and there are no borders. The outcome is a clean look that paints a better image of the monsters in action. It’s also great that the evolutions continue the same image when set next to one other, like the Magikarp and Gyrados cards. Obviously, you wouldn’t want to be challenging anybody with a deck like this, because it’s so hard reading the actual attacks. But, come on, who would want to risk damaging the creases? I’d frame them instead.
The Light Jolteon displayed below looks even more impressive, with the cute little electric type cuddling a Togepi (one of my favorites). The glossy finish also captures the eye.
Nintendo is celebrating the 20th anniversary of this series in different ways, one of which, is by releasing the original Pokémon card set. Unfortunately, this is only in Japan, but if you can get a hold of a pack, you too can modify them. Just don’t do it with rare cards, that would not be smart.
