Serebii.net Project Complete: Card Section

A few years ago, after much deliberation, it was decided for us to stop covering the Trading Card Game barring the Movie half decks which came out each year. Since then, I have often been asked why we no longer cover it and so late last year, I decided that I would begin covering it again. So, for the last six months, I have been hard at work on the database behind it and finally, it is complete. With special thanks to our resident TCG Guru; SkittyOnWailord, as well as Blackjack Gabbiani and kitty for assisting with the scans of various sets adding to our previous backlog of scans. We have all the US sets and Promos covered. The Theme Decks for each set are also listed for each set containing details about each card in the theme deck and the quantity within. We also have the recent two Japanese sets, Pokémon VS and many Japanese Promos including the upcoming Movie set and special Pokémon Scramble set. We're still working on the backlog of Japanese Promos however so please be patient in regards to them.
However, lists of the sets and the details on the cards within them are not all within this. I have also created a comprehensive Cardex which features all 493 Pokémon and all the cards that feature them. I have also made special extra pages for Owner's Pokémon and Pokémon Variants as well as pages for each kind of Trainer Card and Energy Card to make it a massively comprehensible database of all cards. All these Cardex entries are also interlinked within the individual card pages
