    Greetings, ladies & gents! Has it really been 13 years since I first joined PokeGym? Wow, I feel old.

    A long time ago, I started a collection of Pikachu cards. The goal? Collect one of each variation of Pikachu, so long as it was printed in the English language. I got pretty far along in my endeavor, collecting 65 variations of everyone's favorite yellow mouse, including such rarities as a sealed e3 Red Cheeks and one of the five "winner" packs from the Kids WB card creator competition. I've barely touched the collection or anything Pokemon-related since 2009, but I did dig it out of the closet the other day and I've been feeling the itch to continue adding to the collection, as well as having some of my gems PSA graded.

    The goal of this thread is to update my old list so I have a solid jumping-off point to continue this collection. My only criteria is that it has to be a "creature" card; no Trainer cards with Pikachu featured in the artwork, no Dittos that look like Pikachu. Beyond that, I am splitting hairs; when I say every variation, I mean EVERY MINUTE VARIATON. Of course, I may never get my hands on such rarities as the Expedition "Sample" Pikachu seen on eBay for $10,000. If I've missed anything, please drop a comment! I'm almost positive I'm missing some cards.

    So, without further ado, I present the list:

    Nice list, here are some more! ;p

    Nice list! I'm barely active on the PokéGym Forum tbh (mostly on the E4 Forum or pkmtcgcollections reddit), which is why I only see your post now.
    Hehe, you and me both. ;)

    I currently own the largest Pikachu collection in the world, with over 850 unique Pikachu TCG cards. This includes every language, 1st/UED, reverse holo/non-holo, special releases, holos, stamps, errors, etc.

    I see you focus on English cards only, so let's see if I can make your list more complete. First of all, here is my collection checklist in Google Drive Excel where you can see all unique Pikachu cards that exist (a.f.a.i.k.). Your list contains 137 English Pikachus, mine currently 174. Since it's a bit too much trouble to look at the differences, I'll just list my entire English Pikachu list instead, and you can see which are missing from yours. :smile:

    Hope this helps. And if you have any questions about a certain card, or want to see a picture, let me know.

    PS: You can find my collection / highlights on YouTube and Instagram, both with the same name as here (Quuador).

    Good luck with your collection. :)

    Greetz,
    Quuador

    PS: That 10,000 USD Sample Pikachu is for a PSA-10 copy and it's very overpriced (and unsold). I bought mine for about 125 USD, which is about what it's worth ungraded (maybe slightly more now, but no more than 200). It just barely pops up, so keep your eyes open on ebay.
