Pokemon Trading Card Game, more affectionately known as the Pokemon TCG to fans and players, are a series of collectable cards released by Pokemon Card Laboratory in Japan and Pokemon USA for most English releases. Asides from being a well known and played card game, the cards themselves appeal to a number of collectors for the high quality artwork and the rarity of older cards.


Main Sets

The main sets of the TCG are essentially the staple of the series. A main set usually comprises of 60 cards or more, and is the driving force of the different eras.

Given our listings internally of the sets are going to include all the merchandise released for those sets or during league in those sets, we've decided to keep the Japanese Sets and the English Sets split for more thorough cataloging. The sets will be listed side-by-side however to correlate. Set logos will also be shown so that people wishing to ID what set a card comes from can quickly thumb through the lists.
