What is faking?

By “fake Pokémon cards” we do not mean the counterfeit cards you usually find on markets and the like. Those are illegal. We mean custom designed cards by members of the community.

A custom designed Pokémon card, this features the Pokémon Walrein.

What should I use?

Most of the known fakers around tend to use Adobe Photoshop for fakes. I personally use Photoshop CS2 and it hasn’t let me down yet. Photoshop can be expensive (especially newer versions) however there are free alternatives available such as The GIMP, however I have no knowledge of such program’s features.


from my original post on the PokéBeach forums:

After getting a few questions in my card thread about stuff such as what blanks I use etc, I thought we need a thread with links to the different resources.


PokémonAaah Blanks
features blanks from the Classic series onward to early RS advanced blanks. Also includes a few custom types, including poison and plastic. made by Nick15, Fangking and DW19.
Many other older series blanks + resources can be found at Pokémon ZEO.

HL-PK ex-series:
Light DualDark Dual

Alternatively, some blanks can be found deep in the roots of Pokebeach, HERE.

EX series MYSTICAL BLANKS, made by Fangking with modifications by Great Chikorita.

ACANTHITE BLANKS by Cascade Gonpory:
Dark Dual

Alternate CONTEST blank series can be located here. These blanks were created a long time ago and I can’t remember what they’re for, but you can use them for anything.

Cascade Gonpory’s DP Blanks can be found here. For the Trainer/Supporter/Stadium blanks, you will need the T/S/S head text.
‘DP SPECIAL’ blanks, a variant of the Diamond + Pearl blanks, these were also made by Cascade Gonpory.

The popular EON blanks made by Latios101 can be found here.

HGSS blanks, made by Cascade Gonpory, are located here, in Cascade’s DA.

Trainer & Supporter HGSS blanks can be found on my DA:
HGSS Trainer Blank
HGSS Supporter Blank
A font guide for these blanks can be found here.

Also, various modified FC blanks can be found in my Photobucket which you can do what you want with. Last Update 15/11/09

This page just contains a few additional things to keep in mind when faking.

Here are two Photoshop tutorials that can give fairly funky effects for card backgrounds.
Colour Wave
Abstract Swirl

I hope this proves a useful resource, if anyone has any other resources feel free to post them here. Some newer blanks (redesigned Diamond and Pearl blanks by Fangking) are due out on PokéBeach sometime soon – when that is I don’t know.

UPDATE (10/04/10): HGSS Tools Released!

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has
    a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a
    lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission.
    Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
