While they might think that a piece of cardboard with a picture may not be worth much, collectors are willing to spend thousands, even hundreds of thousands of dollars for the rarest and most valuable Pokémon cards out there.

Starting in 1996, Pokémon has been developed into mediums such as movies and video games, but trading cards remain at the core of the franchise.

Next we will show you the rarest and most expensive Pokémon cards that exist around the world.

22. Southern Islands Card Game

This game can be very difficult to find, as there are only 18 cards made up of 2 sets of 9, and they are only valuable if it is an original in your collectible folder. But if you meet all of those requirements, the game sells for $ 150- $ 300 per card.

21. First edition of Holographic Shadowless Machamp

This letter is worth up to $ 5,000! It's a first edition and has a shadowless bug, both of which make the cards extremely valuable! Of course, the price varies a lot depending on the quality of the menu, but it is quite guaranteed that it will give you good money.

20. Gold Star Espeon and Umbreon

There are very few cards with Gold Star, but if your card is a Gold Star, you will find it directly to the right of the name. These cards are so rare because originally the Espeon card was only given to members of the Pokémon Players Club, and they had to trade 50,000 points to get it! The Umbreon is worth up to $ 5,000 and the Espeon up to $ 6,000.

19. 1999 Pokémon Venusaur 1st Edition

Because Venusaur is one of the most collectible and remarkable Pokémon, the first edition of the card, especially in good quality, can sell for quite a bit. In fact, one recently sold for over $ 8,000!

18. Shining Charizard

Shiny Pokémon cards were introduced with the second generation of Pokémon games, and "Shining Charizard" was the first shiny Pokémon ever found! One thing that stands out about this card is that Charizard himself is holographic, rather than just the background. This card is typically valued at around $ 5,000, but has been sold for up to $ 8,900!

17. Box of Pokémon Packs with Black Triangle Error

Regular Pokémon booster boxes can sell for thousands of dollars if the box is sealed because there can be a variety of different rare cards inside, but if the box has a black triangle bug on the deck, it's worth even more!

Recently a box sold for $ 8,700! The black triangle was put on the box because they printed too many first edition boxes, so they had to cover the 1st edition stamp with the triangle.

16. Snap Cards

With the release of the Pokemon Snap 64 DD game, there was a promotion where players could take snapshots, and the winners had their work printed on the trading cards!

These cards have been sold for up to $ 11,000, but sadly (if you're trying to sell yours), most cost considerably less.

15. Tropical Mega Battle Cards

From 1999 to 2001, there was an annual TCG tournament in Honolulu, Hawaii called The Pokemon Tropical Mega Battle.

Each year there were only 50 TCG players, so the promo cards given out at these events are extremely rare. Some of these cards, like the One Tropical Mega Battle Trainer Card with Psyduck, can cost up to $ 10,000!

14. Blastoise First Edition Shadowless Holographic

Shadowless cards were created due to a production error and are therefore very rare and very valuable. Blastoise isn't the most valuable shadowless card by any means, but a perfectly good one can be worth up to $ 10,000.

13. Charizard First Edition

There are several different first-edition Charizard cards, and almost all of them are valuable.

Specifically, the first edition of the German Charizard card called Glurak has recently sold for $ 9,400 and is definitely one of the most sought after first editions of Charizard.

First Edition Charizards with good grades can win over $ 10,000!

12. Japan 2010 World Championships Master Key trophy card

Every year, the best of the best Pokémon players gather in world championships to battle for money, prizes, and the title.

The 2010 championship was held at the Hilton in Waikoloa Village, Hawaii, and consisted of just thirty-six participants who were the only ones to receive this foil letter, making it one of the rarest cards ever! exist!

They rarely go up for sale or auction, but when they do, they always cost $ 10,000 or more.

11. Kangaskhan Father / Son Tournament Promotion

In May 1998, there was a special Parent / Child Battle Mega Tournament, and in that event, there was a special promo card delivered only to elite players.

Because these cards were only given out at that event, many collectors see it as the holy grail of JCC cards and will pay up to $ 10,000 for one.

10. Precast Raichu Cards

There were only 10-15 Raichu cards available worldwide, which means finding one is extremely difficult and buying one costs a lot of money.

A pre-release Raichu card can sell for more than $ 10,000.

9. 2002 Pokemon Expedition Charizard

The Pokemon Company delivered these letters to their employees, and they were never supposed to go out to the general public, but it appears that at least one of the employees kept their original packages and sold them to fans years later.

Because no one really knows how many cards have been printed, they are definitely considered a valuable and collectible card and have sold for just over $ 11,000.

8. Japanese Pikachu Ginza Tanaka 20th Anniversary 24K Gold Card

These cards were only sold for 20 days, which means there aren't many of them.

Each card is made from 11g of 24k gold and is made for decoration, not technical play. While the gold is only worth around 600, the card has sold for over $ 12,000!

7. Promotion Black Star letter Ishihara GX

At her 60th birthday party, Tsunekazu Ishihara dealt around 30 of these cards, and they rarely hit the market, making it one of the rarest cards out there!

Those that have sold have gone for about $ 13,000.

6. Japanese promo card Summer Battle Road Holo Victory Orb

The top 3 winners of each age division at the Battle Road Summer Tournament in 2005 received one of these cards, and it was only awarded in this competition during that year, making it one of the rarest cards out there.

People recently sold the card for over $ 15,000!

5. 2005 EX Deoxys # 107 Rayquaza Gold Star Holo Card PSA 10 Gem

Rayquaza is one of the most powerful Pokémon out there, and it gained a considerable amount of popularity after it was used as a mascot in the video game Pokémon Emerald. If you are lucky enough to own one of the Rayquaza cards with the gold star on it, you will see that it can be worth over $ 19,000!

4. Numbers 1, 2, 3 Trainer Cards

Every year at the TCG Worlds Finals, they would release coach cards and only give them to the winners.

Receiving one of the cards was a guarantee that you could play in the championship next year.

Because only one of each letter was delivered each year, they are extremely rare. Unfortunately, these cards are so rare that there is no known price, but it would certainly be one of the most expensive cards out there.

3. Magikarp Tamamushi University Promo Card

When it comes to playing the game, Magikarp is definitely not by far the most powerful card, but there are only 30-100 of these cards in circulation, making it one of the rarest! They were originally delivered in 1998 at a Japanese Pokémon conference, and today they are worth up to $ 27,000.

2. Charizard Shadowless Holographic First Edition

Shadowless cards are cards that lack the shadow to the right of the image.

This error only occurred for a very short period of time, making the cards rare and very valuable. Specifically, the first edition, Shadowless Holographic Charizard, can cost up to $ 50,000 or more if given an impeccable rating.

1. Pikachu Illustrator Letters

The Pikachu Illustrator card is by far the rarest card in circulation, making it the Holy Grail of Pokémon!

This letter was only awarded to the winners of the 1998 CoroCoro Comic Book Illustration Contest, so there are only a handful available worldwide. These cards have a minimum value of $ 50,000 and have been sold for more than $ 200,000.

In fact, in 2020, (ZenMarket) broke a world record by selling the most expensive Pokémon card in the world.

For $ 233,000, ZenMarket's ZenPlus sold a Pikachu Illustrator card, solidifying the Pikachu Illustrator card as the most expensive and rare Pokémon card of all time.

Well so far the summary of the 22 most valuable pokemon cards in the world

I gave myself the task of conducting this little investigation for those who have a treasure hidden somewhere in their childhood memory box. The value of this charge is measured in its rarity and state of preservation since they are very rare and unique there is a growing market for this pokemon cards in the world as well as many NFTs attached to it ...

I hope you liked the information and have a great day.
