Reason: missing several Pokémon card sets
- This article is about collectible cards. For the trading card game, see Pokémon Trading Card Game.
- For the cards featuring individual Pokémon in the Pokémon Trading Card Game, see Pokémon (TCG).
Collectible Pokémon cards are cards which feature Pokémon characters or concepts, distributed either as promotional material, or as products in and of themselves. This technically includes the Pokémon Trading Card Game, as it is a collectible card game - however, unlike the TCG where cards act as game pieces, most other collectible cards do not necessarily serve any such function.
The appeal of collectible cards tends to be derived from features such as their artwork, flavor text, or rarity, as well as attempting to collect complete sets of cards. Tying into this, some cards physically connect to each other, often forming a larger, secondary image.
Collectible cards are generally produced and distributed by third-party companies under license by Nintendo, rather than being produced in-house.
