• Welcome back to Pokécharms! We've recently launched a new site and upgraded forums, so there may be a few teething issues as everything settles in. Please see our Relaunch FAQs for more information.

Trainer Card Maker artworks

Why was the regular artwork Gimmighoul, Cyclizar, and every other Paldean Pokemon replaced by their in-game sprites? Shouldn't both be there? It doesn't make sense to get rid of all the officially released art when it was there before.

When they were releasing the official artwork for the new Pokémon throughout the year, they started releasing them only with a white outline, and then started releasing them without. We had no choice but to leave this inconsistency until release because it's all we had, but now we have the actual game assets for every new Pokémon so they are at least consistent there.

Once we get hold of the official art for all of the new Pokémon we'll update them all at once with high-quality, consistent images. Same goes for the HOME renders once those are available.
