blastoise, shiny picture
azumarill shiny picture
meganium shiny picture
dragonite shiny picture

mr. mime shiny picture
beedrill full shiny gold thing, looks fake
alakazam, whole card is shiny/ some kind of holothing dunno?
ivysaur, whole card shiny/some kind of holo?

Given how the rarity of the card depends on what set it's from, pictures would actually be very helpful.

A handful of those look to be from the BS (Basic Set). Then again, I'm not exactly an expert like DNA and Frost. But nice D-air card!

Let's see here...

Blastoise - That's a Blastoise from Base Set 2. The logo for Base Set 2 is a stylized 2 with a Poke Ball by it (look at the picture's bottom right). It's a holo.
Dragonair - From Base Set. Base Set has no symbol. Not a holo.
Azumarill - That's from the Neo Genesis set, the first of the four Johto sets. Also a holo.
Meganium - From Neo Genesis (the double-star is its logo). Holo.
Dragonite - A holo from Fossil (the logo is Aerodactyl's claw). From the photo it looks like it's in rather poor condition because I can see that little layer of film slowly peeling off.
Mewtwo - From Base Set. Holo.
Alakazam - Wow! A reverse holo Alakazam from Legendary Collection! These are pretty hard to come by; you could probably get quite a bit of money for that. I just checked Troll & Toad, and they give the price as $6, but they're pretty hard to find so I'd probably value it a bit more than that.
Ivysaur - Another reverse holo from Legendary Collection. Most of the reverse holos from that set are collector's items now.
Hitmonchan - Ah, good old Hitmonchan from Base Set. Holo.
Beedrill - I'm pretty sure the Beedrill is fake, since it gives the original set as Base Set, and that Beedrill wasn't holo in any of its incarnations...unless that happens to be light reflecting off the card itself, which I doubt.
Mr. Mime - Ah, that's from the Jungle set (the logo is Vileplume's flower), and it too is a holo. I think I can see the film on that peeling off too, much like the Dragonite.

In summation, a lot of the cards you have are basically collector's items now, since they're all from the "classic" sets. Most of them appear to be in good condition, although the Dragonite and Mr. Mime are peeling and the Alakazam and Ivysaur are warped (which usually is what happens to foil cards when left out). Collectors might pay quite a bit for those, or if you want, you can keep them as bragging tools.

wow! that makes me a bit annoyed that i donated my ''collection book'' wich was full of the same stuff. (inside a book with plastic sleeves)

so then, anyone interested in some rare pokemon cards?

also, the beedrill i now see is fake.. its even smaller than the other cards, and the shining on it is completely different

also, thanks alot m8!

The Beedrill could be real. I do recall that they made sticker versions of some cards that were a bit smaller than usual and had holo patterns like the one in the picture.

oh yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah

If it's a sticker, then it could definitely be real. I have a Japanese Jumpluff sticker lying around somewhere with a very similar foil pattern.
I think the stickers are something like 1.5" across and 3" long, approximately.

ah, its a way of talking in my country.

what i mean is,
the stickers. are they actually worth anything? or are they just '' look, how fun''

actually, lemme rephrase that, its not really the worth im looking for in all this, i am just curius if its a weird curiosity or a actually usable card or whatever :)

The stickers are basically "oh this looks pretty!" things. You can't use them to play with, so yeah.

As for the cards, they aren't really playable either unless you are playing a tournament when you're restricted to just older cards. But they look nice and pretty too!
