I love the FA Talonflame V, SR Memory Capsule, and FA Galarian Sirfetch'd V, but the colors on the SR Obstagoon just do not look good on that card.
I don't want more Ultra Rares if it just means it's going to be simple palette swaps like Rainbows or an exuberant amount of Gold Items that don't have as much of a collectible appeal as something like a Pokemon or a Supporter.
The way I see that is that the artists/designers/whatever probably wanted the backgrounds to be a distinctly different color than the Pokemon, so that the Pokemon are easy to distinguish at a glance.Honestly I'm in that camp now too, as crazy as that sounds from me. Started around the time Rebel Clash came out. Sun and Moon has that consistency, like you said, whereas SwSh's are a huge mixed bag. I like some of them, SwSh base in general was okay, especially the legendaries. As it went on though, it's starting to just get...Weird? Like, pink backgrounds for Inteleon, Rhyperior is in the Rainbow Dimension, and Centiskorch is behind a blue and green background that looks like a wave of water. It bothers me especially since they're capable of having fitting backgrounds. Just look at, I dunno, every single Full Art from BW and XY?? It's so disappointing since I think overall most of the V full arts have better renders than a lot of GX's, but they're not being done any justice.
The basic full arts from Gen 7 have definitely grown on me over the years as I gain more of them and see them all together, it's a cool consistent little part of a binder. (At least if you organize by type. By set? Not so much). Not the best thing out there but definitely not the worst. I don't and never will like them as much as EX's, but I can appreciate what they are. Same with Hidden Fates shinies which despite how hard they are to collect I really do like seeing them all together.
No doubt! Shout out to the artists. I love the variety of art styles that we get each and every time! The art really caters to different tastes and allows me to appreciate different interpretations of pokémon.Loved that episode!
I don't really play the TCG, but I've got to say that the artwork on many of these cards look phenomenal! Honestly, I see myself collecting some of these cards just for that reason alone.
