    I was trying to figure out why the Colorless Energy symbols were arranged in a T-shape, until I realised that they're just placeholders for the Weakness and Resistance. xD

    We've already some beta-inspired blanks of yours in the OP (these ones)! Are these new ones much different? Are they new blanks more of a revamped version of the previous ones, or are they completely new?

    The old beta blanks were based more directly on the prototype cards. The base cloud texture was different, the cards were longer, and they were Japanese. The new ones are a re-imagining of what our classic English cards could've looked like if most of these prototype features were retained, but with dimensions, fonts, and textures closer to the end result. New ones are also print-res and include all TCG Types, not just those from the classic sets.

    EDIT: Updated the template.

    @AwesomeEevee / Metagross101 has recently released some custom type blanks for the DPPt-era, so I've added them to the OP. You can also find them here:

    Wish I'd seen this thread sooner. Been making my cards from copying and pasting without any templates. Maybe some of you might seen my cards before and know where I am from.

    Does anyone know if the artist permission list is up to date?

    Yeah, sorta. It's up to date in that all artists listed gave long-term permission for their art to be used (I have records) and they haven't contacted myself to say otherwise.

    It may still need some tweaking, but Soft Light 30% under Screen 20% looks pretty close to proxies.

    Updated my Space Cat Runes font with a new numbering system. I opted to drop my previous custom glyphs in favor of rotating existing ones for more of an "official" feel. It also works a bit more like Roman numerals this time (10, 10 before 30, 30, 10 after 30, etc). Be sure to check the readme!

    Nice one. I'm just downloading them, albeit slowly, then once I find the enthusiasm, I will start faking again.

    What's up everyone? Just signed up about 5 minutes ago after skimming through a lot of this post. I'm on a nostalgia trip ever since my nephew asked me to play Pokemon with him and I've been wanting to print out some of my own cards for personal use. I see most of this works for digital cards but has anyone had success in imitating the actual holographic foil effect on an actual physical card? I did see one of the users made an awesome Ancient Celebi card that is holo, but I was looking for more of the classic effects like the star or cosmos.

    I've been researching and thinking of buying some holographic foil and using a laminator to transfer it or just printing onto it directly. Everything I see uses either a standard or pre-made special pattern which is fine for most cases, but I was looking to somehow copy the classic effects or just create my own patterns for the foil. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of thing?

    Thanks for any replies!

    Hey man! I do know someone in the community who has tried doing holographic cards (might be @Nekoban Ryo?) and was quite successful, though I can't quite remember who off the top of my head.

    If you don't get any other responses here, I'd recommend checking out the faking community Discord which you can find in the OP of this thread. We're all much more active over there!

    No idea how to create custom holofoil designs physically, but here's how I print my holographic fakes (stripping official cards). There are other techniques out there, but this is the only one I know of that doesn't require expensive equipment.

    Alternatively, you can get self-adhesive holographic scrapbooking film like I did for Ancient Celebi. This method is far easier, but not quite as realistic unless you're doing Radiant Collection-style cards.

    @bbninjas I'll definitely check out the Discord. Could you give me a link? Thanks!
    @Nekoban Ryo I'll have to order some different types of holofoil and experiment a little bit. Your cards look great! I'll read up on your tutorials, thanks!

    I've been looking all over for textureless/"Character Rare"-style Sun and Moon blanks, but having no luck finding them. Anyone got a lead?

    I'm not entirely sure what blank you mean, but you can check the wiki and see if it's there: https://pokemontcgresource.fandom.com/wiki/Templates_SM.

    Will PM the link~
