    Default Pocket Monster Cards made in 1997 in Japanese

    hello,
    I was wondering if anyone has information on Pocket Monster cards made in Japan in 1997. 95% of the card is written in Japanese. Even though I am only half Japanese, i can only read a little bit. They are copyrighted under Nintendo CREATURES GAMEFREAK TV TOKYO SHO-PRO JR KIKAKU.
    on the front: it has the picture of the pokemon, its name and i think its strongest attack. the cards are numbered "FILE No.004", "FILE No.005", "FILE No.006" and so on. The top right corner has the Pocket Monsters logo in Japanese and the bottom of the card has the words "POCKET MONSTERS" in english.
    on the back: starting from the top, it has the copright information, the file number, the pokemon's name, type, information, small picture of the pokemon with its height and weight. (<-- that's all in the top half) below there is a little diagram saying what level each pokemon evolve (if they do in fact evolve), in the bottom right hand corner going down, it has the pokemon's strongest attack, the PP of the strongest attack, what type of pokemon the attack is strongest against (e.g. Charmander - grass, ice and insect), also a small description of the attack (my guess). on the bottom left hand corner is a diagram showing the frequency in which you will see the pokemon in pokemon red, blue and green (some pokemon just have NO DATA there instead (e.g. Charmander), at the very bottom it has the creator's name in japanese (my guess is Banpresto and Bandai) then the year/location it was made which is "1997 MADE IN JAPAN". Each card is colour coded to match the type of pokemon it is (i think - Water pokemon in blue, grass in green and fire in red).
    Please, does anyone have information on these cards?

    p.s The photo is of the front of my Charmander card and back of my Drowsee card.

    Who the hell moved this here when it's not a TCG card?

    Anyway, as I said on Serebii, I have a Vileplume of this, but I'm not sure where it comes from.

    Wow, I wish I had some of those. They must be some collectible cards, not ones you play with. Looking at Suriipaa, it seems to have Pokemon info and info of one its attacks. I don't know what the triangle is, but maybe it shows how common the Pokemon is in those three game versions.
    Captain Lincoln Stern, you stand here accused of...
    12 counts of murder in the first degree
    14 counts of armed theft of Federation property
    22 counts of piracy in high space
    18 counts of fraud
    37 counts of rape
    and 1 moving violation....how do you plead?

    OLD SUGIMORI ARTWORK!

    Awesome.

    That's the living Pokemon history!

    Awesome!

    I'm a Sugimori Artwork collector, but I've never seen it in my life.

    Awesome!

    How many such cards do you have?

    ...dude, is that Paras eating a Weedle? XD Maybe it's just an attack. Leech Life, perhaps?

    I would so buy these if they were still made and were translated into English. Especially if it meant exclusive Sugimori artwork. :3 I've never had much interest in playing the TCG anyway, so cards focusing on just the "TC" aspect would be cool.

    IMPORTANT REMINDER:
    It's just the Internet. Calm down.

    I've moved this thread, as it's not about the Pokemon TCG.

    Or that Paras and Weedle were originally meant to be compatible breeders.

    Grn's right, take a closer look at the image, Weedle is clearly enjoying it.

    Also these are pretty cool, and sparking an urge to want to find and collect them. (there's only 150..151 tops, it probably isn't that hard to collect them all once you get the chance)
