Batch 31: Pokémon 
14th-Nov-2007 11:47 pm
I remembered that I had a set of old Japanese sticker trading cards from the days of Pokémon: Red and Blue (even before Yellow came out) with art done by Ken Sugimori on them. I don't think I've ever seen the art anywhere else or mention of these cards (it's a playable card game), so I scanned all 45 of them to make icons with. I thought it would be fun since most of them are action scenes with many of the less popular Pokémon (like Jynx, Staryu, and Tangela).

Please credit if you use any of these, and feel free to friend me for more updates.

Here is one of the original cards, if you're curious what they looked like. Each card works as a backing for a sticker. The stickers are pretty fun too, but they won't scan too well because they're holographic.
