Pokemon TCG Artwork Appreciation Thread!

    shoz999 ... Don't laugh.

    I searched this forum and I cannot believe that there is no artwork thread for the Pokemon TCG! The diverse array of art that goes into the Pokemon TCG is AMAAAAZING! I love how many of the Pokemon look like animals roaming peacefully in their habitats, how some cards tell stories, or how their just roaming around the city playing or peacefully cozying by the fire place! How has there never been an Artwork thread!? Well I'm starting one right now and luckily you can get all your card pics from Serebii's personal cardex!

    A personal line of favorites has been the Delta Species line of cards. Many of the cards, even to an extant the trainer and support cards, tell the story of the Holon region featuring many vast geographical locations, academic buildings, haunting forests, great seas, a mysterious lake nearby and a vast surge of electrical storms scaring away the Pokemon! Seriously, a lot of these could probably pass off as paintings if the Pokemon world were real. Actually now that I think about it, it would be pretty cool to see some of the TCG art here displayed as paintings in the main series games. Seriously though, the artwork is just so freaking gorgeous!

    Me too! Actually, I have a painting of Aegislash Sword Form in my bedroom. It was painted by my parents when they asked me my favorite Pokémon (boy, they said it wasn't the easiest one, but they succeeded in painting it). I also have a "lifesize" Ken Ichijouji painted on the wall of my bedroom too. Guess my family and I really are in paintings.

    I can't believe I haven’t been on this thread before... the TCG art is just fantastic! Everything from the card artwork, the booster packs, the theme decks, etc. I have a collection back home that I revisit whenever I get the chance since I always enjoy looking at it. Every time new TCG cards are revealed, I get curious about what they look like. I generally love most artwork that isn't just using the Sugimori official art, but a few favorites I'll mention are:

    The Zekrom from Roaring Skies, which I can't help but stare at whenever I see it... just look at the detail on its toned body! (Okay, well these images aren't the best quality). These stand out to me from a combination of their super dynamic poses and the art style that is used for them:

    The Generations set was incredibly endearing in some of the art, particularly these Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard cards that show the growth of the boy and his starter:

    And these two are just so, so cute, lying down all comfortably:

    Basically, every EX and full art has Pokemon that look great, but the legend cards from Heartgold and Soulsilver series are incredibly unique in their art and stand out the most to me. The one with Entei and Raikou is my favorite one, especially since it was the first of the few super rare cards (the Raikou part) that I ever got from booster packs:
