Pokémon Cards

Pokémon Cards are collectible cards featuring various Pokémon characters from the popular video game and anime series.

They were first produced in Japan in 1996 and include some of the most popular characters from the original games, including Pikachu, Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle.

You can buy packs of cards at stores, or you can trade with other players.

At Swirl Cafe, we have all kinds of Pokémon cards to help you add to or start a collection!

  • Singles: Individual cards that are sold separately rather than in booster packs or theme decks. Singles are often sought after by players and collectors who are looking for specific cards to complete their decks or collections.
  • Booster Boxes: A Pokémon booster box is a sealed box of booster packs for the Pokémon Trading Card Game. Each booster pack typically contains 10 random cards, including a mix of common, uncommon, and rare cards.
  • Collection Boxes: Pokémon collection boxes are a great way to start a Pokemon card collection. Each box typically contains promo cards, booster packs, and some extras.
  • Battle Decks: These league-ready decks are great for skilled trainers and Pokémon players. They include a variety of cards, from premium foil cards to power cards.
  • Values Packs: Value packs are guaranteed to contain value equal to or greater than the cost of the pack. They can include both modern and vintage cards.

And so much more!

Pokémon cards have become a beloved collectible item and a popular hobby for many people around the world.
