    So, I collected a lot as a kid through to my late teens. Eventually life took over, getting a job, paying bills etc and I walked away from Pokemon all together just over 10 years ago. Anyway, lockdown happened and I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands so decided to revisit my collection and Pokemon in general (possibly the best decision of my life btw).

    Going through my cards after such a long time there were some that I have no recollection of. I think most of them are promos. There are some holo energys that I think might be some sort of promo set. I know alot of the english ones are nintendo series promos but some have 2 versions and I'm not sure why? Some could even be fake, but there’s no obvious signs as far as I can tell (famous last words).

    I’ve attached pictures of some of the cards below and if anyone recognises any of them and could help me identify them it would be a huge help!

    - first time posting here so if I’ve broken any rules please go easy on me! Or, if there’s a thread already set up for this sort of thing please let me know, thanks!

    These were all promos during the R/S era of the CCG. The two different versions were either holo or non holo depending on where and how you got them. You can look at Bulbapedia under their promo listings for that era for more information there.

    Thanks so much!

    I knew the first few were all part of the same promotional set but couldn't for the life of me remember which one. After looking it up on Bulbapedia it looks like I have the complete Japanese Best Song CD set, just missing the english Pikachu card... I probably have it somewhere but mixed it in with my english cards.

    I've updated my list but you've pretty much covered them all so I can't thank you enough!

    @Pikachu6319 and @FourteenAlmonds covered it, kudos there. That being said, lucky you've got those CD promos! I've been after those for years now. Beautiful cards there.

    The Dunsparce card comes from the Japanese Pokémon Information Pack Volume 1.
    And the artwork is also lovely.
