: The "Shadowless" cards are the very first print runs that Wizards of the Coast (WOTC) produced for the Pokemon Base Set. This print run was remarkable in its poor "look". The cards were dull in color and the graphics were "muted". WOTC quickly changed several things on the cards; the most obvious was putting the shadow around the box which had the art of the Pokemon character. The "HP" font was also changed and the colors were made to "pop". Shadowless cards are much like "1st Edition" cards in their rarity. 1st edition Shadowless cards exist as well.
Yeah. Maybe a counter system could be used for evolution, like whenever this creature has blah counters on it, sacrifice it to evolve it. Idk, maybe. Do like the cards, though. You have inspired me to make a pokeemans set of mah own, but with my own stuff. Overall, nice .
