Closer look at the latest Pokémon TCG art featuring Wigglytuff, Mismagius and more

It’s time to take another look at the wonderful art that makes Pokémon TCG cards special and unique. Even on such a small canvas, card illustrators discover ways to portray Pokémon unlike we’ve ever seen before. Suffice it to say, it’s hard to imagine the Pokémon TCG without the incredible new artwork in every expansion.

We turn our attention toward the Sun & Moon—Crimson Invasion expansion, which continues to put the Pokémon and people of the Alola region in the spotlight. Every day this week, we’ll highlight a different theme or aspect of the cards to encourage you to take a closer look at all of the art of the Pokémon TCG.

Come back tomorrow to see the next entry in our series on Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon—Crimson Invasion artwork.

Cameo Appearances

Each Pokémon card represents a single Pokémon, a logical idea and a necessity of the rules of the game. But that doesn’t stop other Pokémon from showing up once in a while on the featured Pokémon’s card. It makes sense that Pokémon interact in the wild, beyond the sight of human Trainers, and scenes like these offer us a snapshot of their lives.

Several Pokémon in the Sun & Moon—Crimson Invasion expansion feature guest Pokémon in their artwork, such as the Weedle who appears to be left in shock as a very grumpy Wigglytuff stomps off. We can only imagine what exchange led to these reactions! Take a closer look at your own cards to find more instances of Pokémon appearing on other Pokémon’s cards.
