Official "How Rare/How Much Is My Card Worth" Thread

I got a Dragons Exalted pack recently and one of the cards I got was labeled Terrakion Ex, but the image on the card is of Registeel. Does anyone know anything about this or where I could find more information?
 
Possibly, your card is not real. This is how you identify fake Pokémon cards:
- Take a look at the backside. Whenever it looks too light, it's probably a fake card.
- Take a look at how firmly your card is. Real cards are always firmly.
- Take a look if the spelling on your card is right. If it's spelled correctly, it's probably a real card.
- Take a look at the HP and attacks. If the attack and the number of HP don't exist, you're usually speaking of a fake card.
But beware that it could also be just an error card, instead, so it could be a valueble Pokémon card.
- Take a look at the type of text on your card. If it's different than usual, it's a fake card.
- Take a look at the border of the card, For example, fake lv. X cards usually have a yellow border.

This is what I know about identifying fake Pokémon cards, but you could also take a look on the Internet for more information.

If the card is not fake, it is an error card, which means it could be very rare and valueble.

I hope my help was useful!

Thanks very much. I got it from a real booster pack last week, and it seems to have checked out on all the criteria. I just don't know where I'd begin looking for a price.
 
I've been looking for some misprint/error card lists on the Internet, but I found nothing.
But maybe you can get some information using Pokellector. I only heard about it, so I don't know if it's trustable.
But you can look at the reviews on the Internet.
 
By the way, I also have a question: I have an albino border Base Set Pikachu (58/102) and it's in good condition.
Does somebody know how much it's worth and how rare it is?
