Do any of these have any real value? I have found some in my old collection and was wondering if I should keep them or just sell them for cheap on ebay.

The most notable monster card I believe is a Holo Bellosom, while there is also three reverse holos; Slowpoke, Vileplum, and a Marill.

I only have 10 trainer cards; any notable ones anyone can think of?

All help much appricated.

Generally Japanese versions sell for less than their English counterparts if an English counterpart exists, especially on the English-speaking versions of sites like eBay.

There are a few Japanese trainer cards that had their artwork changed when they were released in English, so the Japanese versions are a little more valuable - specifically, they are Koga's Ninja Trick, which has a symbol resembling a swastika on the bottom; Sabrina's Gaze, which has Sabrina raising her hand toward the viewer and was changed because some people thought she was giving the middle finger; Misty's Tears, which has an obscured naked Misty crying and touching a Staryu; and Moomoo Milk from Neo Genesis, which has a Sentret sucking on the utter of a headless, legless cow.

@ The Japanese Art: EW. And I thought that the anime had some weird **** in it.

These past years have been great, and this community was a great one. Key word being was. Since my birthday last year, the site hasn't updated at all, and people have been slowly trickling away from the forums over the weeks. I've had this site as my internet homepage for ages, and I anxiously awaited the resurgence that I hoped would come. But it never came. So, it is with a heavy heart that I announce my permanent leave of Psypoke. As a moderator, I wished only the best for everyone here, and worked to maintain a jolly environment where everyone could discuss cartoon monsters in peace. Now, I wish all those who happen to be reading this message good luck in whatever endeavors you have chosen to pursue, and that your futures be bright.

Mektar out.
