Back to the basics by endless-whispers Back to the basics by endless-whispers
Cards featuring a simplified design of a Game Boy Pocket on the front. When the tab at the bottom is pulled, the blank screen reveals one of the starter Pokémon from the RBY series. The mechanism is the same as the one seen on this Rotom card.

These were made for sale at an anime convention. Not many were sold, although quite a number of people stopped by to play with the card, which sorta made me happy. (Some kids even tried mashing the buttons to see if anything else would happen...) Charmander isn't a part of this set as I didn't have its illustration ready on time.

I still have a a few copies of each card for sale. If you're interested in getting one, you either drop me a note on DA or head over to my Storenvy. (I'm new to these online shops, so please be patient with me if I mess things up!)

Unfortunately the Charmander illustration looked a little too different from the set, and I didn't have the time to redraw it, so it never made it to the collection. If you are interested in getting one, you can drop me a note :)

That's too bad that not many sold! These are really cute and unique. I thought maybe it was the price, but when I went to your online store, they're really reasonable! Maybe it's because hardly no one sends snail-mail anymore. :(

I love giving cards to other people for birthdays and other occasions, so I thought other people might buy the cards to do the same :) But I think the reason these cards didn't sell so well is because not many con-goers were that interested in Pokemon. (Most of my customers were kids.) Other booth owners also complained about the lack of sales too, so I wasn't alone. Thanks for the encouragement though, I was initially worried that they were overpriced :blush:

I would have thought Pokemon would have been more popular! Who doesn't love Pokemon?!

Here's how you know they're not overpriced: walk into a grocery store, and look at the prices at the cards. I've seen $5-7 cards for some "fancy" ones, some of which don't even "sing" or "talk", just have a lot of glitter and ribbon. It's ridiculous! I'd much rather have something hand-made than a factory produced card for $5.
