Pokemon Trading Cards History

Established in 1996 by Wizards of the Coast, in Japan, the Pokemon Trading Card Game quickly rose to be one of the most popular in the country, following the release of the Pokemon games from Nintendo. This run then saw the release to the rest of the world in 1998, with the elusive Pokemon Base Set, consisting of 102 cards, 16 of these being ‘Holo Cards (shinies). Although the original Pokemon set consisted of 151 Pokemon, these were split out into the initial run, which included the Pokemon Cards Base Set, Jungle Set & Fossil Set. Since then there has been close to 10,000 unique Pokemon cards released so far, with of course, many more planned in the future. 

Popular Pokemon Cards

We couldn't talk about Pokemon cards without mentioning the most popular, which of course is famously known as any Charizard card. Ever since its release the elusive Charizard card has become a grail for many collectors, with of course the Pokemon Base Set version being the most coveted. Ever since that initial English print release there have been hundreds of variants of Charizard Pokemon Cards, from trainer owned cards (for example Blaine’s Charizard card) to ‘Shining’ variants. Although each specific collector / Pokemon TCG player will have their own favourite Pokemon Cards, it would be a miss not to mention Blastoise & Venusaur and the most famous Pokemon of them all, Pikachu!

So if you’re just an avid Pokemon Card collector, or building out your Pokemon Battle Deck to play in a local or national tournament, at Gathering Games we have you covered!
