    Now that’s a nice card.
     
  2. 'Bout time they give due credit to the Pokemon trainer that actually caught them all.

    I like the idea of the card, but the art seems kind of wedged in there.

    The merchandise looks nice.

    The card looks pretty bad, just gives me a bootleggy vibe.

    Art looks like it should be a part of 3 side by side to make up one whole picture like next card in the row with charizard coming along behind and last card with his snorlax or something be cool just seems really randomly splashed on to be on its own.

    Will still be a 100% purchase regardless! Never know it could appear in some kind of tie in product later this year or if we get another premium trainer collection (this and masked royal full art PLEASE!!)
