So I found this interesting site – which unfortunately stopped being updated a while ago – having tons of original scans of the Japanese version of the Pokemon Trading Cards. You can read the articles and inspect the scans here – Collector Viper.
Since I don’t have my original collection of cards which I started when I was young.. I decided to print my cards and eventually gather some of the sets. I have the entire first basic set with a few extra Energy cards.
Also now I’ve printed some of the Japanese version of the newer generations, with new attributes for the original Pokemon, newer Trainer cards and Energy cards.
