There are many ways to engage with the Pokémon Trading Card Game, including appreciating the distinctive artwork on each card. From August 10, 2022 to October 22, Pokémon fans can enjoy the magnificent and diverse imagery of the Pokémon Trading Card Game: Online Illustration Exhibition.
The exhibition features three distinct themes that fans can explore: Life, History, and Artist. As indicated by the name, Life provides a glimpse of the habitats and routines of Pokémon; History traces the evolution of Pokémon TCG illustrations since their beginnings in 1996; and Artist shows the different approaches that artists take to capturing a single Pokémon.
