ALL ‘HeartGold & SoulSilver’ Scans

Alph Lithograph from HeartGold & SoulSilver (#1)

We now have all of the HeartGold & SoulSilver scans thanks to Torterra Chips, jade89, Legandaryhon, sonicyellow, burnpsy, Matt, Edward, Brandon, drksatir, and Alex. In a few weeks, our master card scanner, Shakespeare, will be scanning in his own collection with his high-quality scanner.

Some notes! Pokemon Prime and basic Energy are not available as reverse holos. In the Japanese set, there were reverse holo Pokemon Prime cards, but that’s not the case for the English release. The secret rare Gyarados card is available in both holo and reverse holo versions, but Alph Lithograph, the other secret rare, is only available as a glossy card. As for box ratios, you can get 5-6 Pokemon Prime and 2-4 LEGEND cards per box. Basic Energy are in one out of every 3-4 booster packs. Pokemon Prime replace the reverse holo in a booster pack, so it’s presumably possible to get both a regular holo and Pokemon Prime in one pack. Alph Lithograph only seems to be available in one out of every three booster boxes while the Gyarados is in almost every box as either a holo or reverse holo. The silver Alph Lithograph card from the original Japanese set will most likely be thrown into our next English HGSS set.
