15th Anniversary Pokemon Swap

So I've been dying to make a Poke'mon swap since I joined and with the release of Black and White, the Anniversary last Sunday and all the hype I figured now would be a great time to host a Poke'mon swap!! Just to let you know this IS my first swap so I want everything to be as simple/basic as possible!

So for this swap it's Open to ALL Poke'mon! Here's a link http://serebii.net/pokedex-bw/ if you'd like some reference for all of them and you can sort through for types and stuff. Please don't do three of the same pokemon! IF you want to do some mixture of a drawing on a collaged background you may, but no prints of pokemon images or stickers only, there HAS to be a drawing in there somewhere! One last note: Please try to be creative! If you can try drawing them in your own style!

-Only Standard 2.5 x 3.5 atcs!
-Please only send your best work!! I will try to match effort for effort as much as I can but try to send cards you'd be happy to get back in return!
-This swap is 3 cards for 3 cards. Host cards are appriciated but never ever required.
-Please pm me when you're ready to send so I can send you my information!

Mailing information:
-PLEASE put your screen name and swap name on the back of your envelope! And all the usual information on the backs of your cards.
-Please try to send at least a stamp with your cards! For international traders if you can provide an international stamp or a well concealed us dollar for the trade it would be much appriciated.
-If your cards are heavy (please don't make them too heavy!) Send .61 cents postage.

Would anthropomorphized versions of pokemon be okay? What about human characters from the pokemon anime and games?

03-07-2011, 08:25 PM
I want to join! XD

03-07-2011, 08:31 PM

I second this question. Can we do human forms, or regular forms only?

03-07-2011, 08:46 PM
best of luck with your swap. My son and his friend just got their new release DS game yesterday (they're both 16). They sang pokemon songs all the way to the store to get their games. Pokemon were all over Japan last summer when we were there. They were on the sides of some subway cars and on some airplane's tails!! We came home with a few Pokemon items! I keep my eyes open for the wonderful pokemon you create and post in the gallery. Again, good luck

03-07-2011, 09:10 PM
I'd love to join!

Pokemon have been popping up around here a lot, and I'm loving it!!

03-07-2011, 09:57 PM
@Kavka: I don't mind anthro or gijinka pokemon :3 Though I don't really want to have the characters from the anime :0 I guess it's just a personal preference but if everyone else is fine with it, it is an aniversary celebration so I guess it's fine xD

@Jaeseals: No you can't join! xD Just kidding.

@Alanabannana: /I/ was one of those people too yesterday! I picked up the two games (white for my little sister and black for myself) and I got the special edition guide with the holographic cover!! I've been playing pokemon for 15 years now so it's kind of a big celebration for me xD

@BekahStargazing: I'll add you :D

03-07-2011, 10:24 PM
Sign me up then.
I will probably do regular pokemon alongside anthro counterparts :)

I haven't picked up the gen 5 games yet. But I think I'll buy black later this week.
I've been playing since red/blue :D

03-07-2011, 10:33 PM
Same here :D I had red the day it came out as a gift from my grandmother for getting good grades in school :3

I'll sign you up :3

Spirit Fingers

03-09-2011, 03:45 PM
So I Added everyone but I had twelve people at Joleen.Cortes! I added SunTrade to a waiting list if that's okay with you :3

03-09-2011, 05:34 PM
Thanks, Locke! This is going to be an awesome swap!!!

03-09-2011, 06:32 PM
My cards are ready!
I chose the gen 1 bird trio and Ho-oh. I decided on Ho-oh instead of Lugia because Ho-oh is the first legend to appear in the anime.

I hope that all of these cards will be well-loved!

03-09-2011, 07:06 PM
Welcome Moosey :D

And Kavka: Those are so nice ;u;

I actually perfer Ho-oh to Lugia because I like the whole legends behind it and the story of the tin tower and burned tower in the games.

03-09-2011, 07:46 PM
I think Ho-oh is my favorite legend :)
Togekiss and Ninetales are my favorite non-legends.

I considered making cards for the gen 5 musketeer trio (or is it a quartet?) but I decided that most people would not be familiar with them yet.

03-10-2011, 02:25 AM
Dagnamit! How did this fill up before I even saw it? I guess I better go on the waiting list and make some anyway.

Man, when I hosted a Pokemon swap I struggled to full it at all!

03-10-2011, 04:09 AM
D:! Yeah I love Togekiss too! i had to leave my ds at home because I have way too much work right now to be playing it ;u; so I don't think I'd know too much about the B&W ones either!

I'm sorry Lemurkat! I knew you lieked pkmn and thought you would join, i had actually made a mental note to send you a pm! but I got caught up ;u;

03-10-2011, 05:36 AM
Well, I've sketched up four bird pokemon. And they're nifty-neat so someone will want to drop out so I can play. Or not... Anyhow, I reckon they count as "whimsical" too, so if I can't swap 'em via this swap, I'll trade 'em i the whimsical bird swap. IT closes a month later so I've plenty of time to make the postage.

And I get to tease you with the cute birdies.

Here's Rufflet (#627)



Swanna (with Ducklett)

03-10-2011, 11:44 AM
Ah, poor Lemurkat! Somebody needs to host another pokemon swap after this!

03-10-2011, 12:33 PM
Can I just host another one later? Cx

03-10-2011, 12:58 PM
As long as this one goes smoothly, I would think that it would be fine :)
(Though you should consult the rules on hosting -- I've never even hosted a swap so what do I know?)

My cards were mailed today.

03-10-2011, 02:37 PM
No need to feel sorry for me. I should be working on the PAT cards, but I feel like drawing cute bird pokemon instead. Interestingly enough, I didn't set out to draw only bird pokemon, but after printing off my favourites from the new list, I realised they were all avian in nature.

03-10-2011, 02:51 PM
Aw! Cx I not sorry! I just wish I could let more people join xD

03-10-2011, 10:59 PM
Wow, this filled up fast.

Kavka, your cards are awesome!

Locke, hope your swap goes smoothly. :)

03-11-2011, 01:20 AM
I so Happy I was able to Sign up for this and make the list I'm doing

and Mew


03-11-2011, 01:28 AM

I drew my cards before I noticed that I was on a waiting list!

If I have time I will finish them anyway and wait to See if get lucky .... Oh well.

03-11-2011, 02:48 AM
I'm so sorry ;u;

I feel so bad now...

03-11-2011, 04:25 AM
I'm so sorry ;u;

I feel so bad now...

No need to feel bad - you have to limit the numbers in your first swap. And I had fun making my cards. And now I"m going to tease you with them ^^

03-11-2011, 01:48 PM
Oh, don't worry. If I decided to finish them I might post them for trade in my gallery!

03-12-2011, 05:03 PM

Hope you like them! :unsure:


03-27-2011, 11:08 PM
Those are so cute! I Love the ditto especially! xD

I personally hate oils to paint with but I like how you used them!!

03-28-2011, 12:58 AM
Ditto is my favorite too!

03-29-2011, 02:19 PM

But hey! Now somebody who is on the waiting list gets to be on the real list. :)

Thanks for understanding,

Thank you very much! :wubclub:

04-16-2011, 12:17 PM
So today and Monday are the last days for me to receive cards :3 But I've never gotten Spiritfingers cards ):

Do I wait a little longer or do I just assume the mail ate them? ):

04-16-2011, 06:55 PM
So spirit fingers received her cards back. I gave her the option to send them back out if she wishes, it'd be a little more wait on everyone if that's okay but if she doesn't get back to me by Monday I'll mail returns Monday! :D


OH and I'm going to give itraders as I go through and package everyones cards because I was afraid of forgetting someone so I figured that would be the best way to do it :D

04-17-2011, 01:01 AM
It all sounds fine to me. I am OK with waiting another couple of days if necessary.

04-18-2011, 11:59 AM
I don't mind waiting XD

04-18-2011, 11:44 PM
I don't mind waiting. :)

And thanks for the picture of all the cards together!! Great idea, they all look awesome. :)

04-19-2011, 12:28 AM
That picture is so cool! It could be a poster!

04-20-2011, 04:18 PM
So I've never recieved a message back from Spirit fingers >:

I'm going to go ahead and send out returns for everyone today :3

But first I'll give itraders :D

04-20-2011, 04:31 PM
Yay returns!
