Hey guys, let’s take a look at my five favorite Pokemon cards from the latest Pokemon TCG set, Fusion Strike. Remember, I don’t really play the TCG. I mostly collect the cards. So my list is going to be based off of art style and the Pokemons themselves. Not so much based on abilities or power levels.
#5 Espeon VMAX
Starting the list off is one of the highest presale priced cards in the set, Espeon VMAX. Admittedly, I love the art and use of color on this card. I’m just putting it this low because I know it is Jessica’s #1 pick from the set.
#4 Genesect V
Based off of art alone, this might be the best card in the set. Sadly, this one of the few old Pokemon’s I’ve never caught or owned. So I have no attachment to the Pokemon itself. V alt arts are really killer in this set though!
Honestly, the secret rares don’t do a lot for me. Their backgrounds are boring compared to the alt art. But they still pop. And I love Flaffy a lot. The fact a middle form got a secret rare and it was Flaffy of all Pokemons is just too awesome.
#2 Mew V (Alternate Full Art)
Here again is another V alternative art card killing it! This one does a lot right in my opinion. You’ve got Mew as the Pokemon in question, which I love. The color is awesome here! And there’s several Pokemon all in the shot, a plus in my book. This card scores a near perfect score in my scorecard!
#1 Celebi V (Alternative Full Art)
A lot of what I said in the previous entry holds true here. I like Celebi more than Mew which is why Celebi edges Mew out for the #1 spot. I like the color better on Mew but the use of landscape, atmosphere and color all work incredible well. This card gives off Christmas and hope vibes which I think we can all appreciate heading into the Winter months!
So there’s my top 5. Let me know what cards you guys are looking forward too most! Fusion Strike is on sale tomorrow so be sure to grab a box or some packs!
