Why, you may ask, are Pokemon cards here? Well, I've mentioned in the past that I have a Pokemon card collection, so they're not entirely random. I've been working on a master Pokedex for a few years now, first getting one card of every Pokemon, and now I'm working on all the variations. A pop-up Pokemon shop opened in the department store near me, so my coworker and I stopped in to check it out. I didn't walk away with any exclusive merchandise (the sleeping Eevees are cute, though!) I did grab eight packs, two of each type they had for sale.
This is from the Sword and Shield (8th Generation) series, and is titled Mugen Zone (Infinity Zone). It's the third series, with 100 cards: 44 common and 34 uncommon, plus 10 rare, 8 ultra-rare, and 4 triple rare (all shiny), along with 19 secret super-rare and hyper-rare cards.
If you've never looked at a Pokemon card before, the Japanese certainly won't help you. The number in the upper-right is a sort of health statistic, and the logo next to it represents the type of Pokemon (ghost, fire, water, and so on).The top left has the Pokemon's name; this one is Skarmory, who in Japanese is (roughly) called Airmode. Sometimes, there is a small image in the upper-left. This means that particular Pokemon is an evolved form; Skarmory is a base form.
The picture in the middle can be really interesting - sometimes there are clay Pokemon, or knitted Pokemon, though usually there is some artwork. The number below the photo (227) is the Pokedex number for that Pokemon. That is the number I'm most concerned with.
The rest of that line has some vital statistics, with the main body of text explaining that Pokemon's moves with this particular card. (Moves can change or be stronger or weaker depending on the particular card.) The line below that includes some additional card game statistics for its use in battle. The bottom right corner includes information on where the image came from, which series this is from, its card number in that series, and the level of rarity (C stands for common). The rest of the text is a sort of biography about the Pokemon.
