About this deal

From left to right: Charizard VMAX 020/189, Charizard VMAX 074/073, Shiny Charizard VMAX SV107/SV122. I'm ashamed to say that prior to writing this article I didn't even know this card existed. We've had Dragonite and Delibird doing deliveries previously, a Dragonite with a mail bag being re-released as a promo for the Sword & Shield series (a nod to the First Movie promo) would've been awesome - but they opted for yet another Charizard. No complaint from me though, its an awesome card. It's also highly sought after and in zero supply. I literally just looked for this while I was writing and there doesn't appear to be any available at any of the online marketplaces. I can only expect that it was a Pokemon Center exclusive. There was actually reference to this card in a little booklet that came with the Sword & Shield Ultra Premium Collection.

The Japanese version of the Charizard appears to have the same moves and ability as that of it's English counterpart card. Artwork byMitsuhiro Arita.

The Neo Destiny sets ultimate secret rare. " The flames it breathes are so hot that they can melt anything. LV. 61 #6"Illus. Hironobu Yoshida. This card was issued in both a 1st Edition and Unlimited print run. Possibly the first rendition of 'shiny' or 'alternate' Charizard on a card, certainly to my memory.... the descriptive text reads " This extremely rare Pokemon is a different color than usual. It is very hard to find." and credit for the illustration of this majestic and elusive zard goes toAyoko Yoshida.

The full art version of 11/106 features an usually docile looking Charizard, which is a nice change from the fire breathing action shots used on many cards.Illustrated by Ryo Ueda. A while after the introduction of Tag Team GX Cards Reshiram & Charizard went their separate ways, after an undeniably successful campaign. Charizard forged a new partnership this time with Braixen. This new partnership lasted three cards (to date) in the Sun & Moon series' final set; Cosmic Eclipse.This full art promo arrived in the Charizard-GX Premium Collection in both a standard and jumbo size format. It features the same moveset as its GX counterparts from Burning Shadows and is essentially the missing standard full art from the Burning Shadows set. Illustrated by 5ban graphics. Cinnibar Island's gym leader Blaine entered the Pokemon TCG fray with a number of his Pokemon in the Gym Challenge set in 2000 including this awesome Charizard. No descriptive/lore text makes me a little sad, but instead we got a cool portrait of Blaine's face where that text would've gone so who can complain right? This card was illustrated by Ken Sugimori. This promo is an alternative full art of the Reshirard card from Unbroken Bonds, it was released in the Reshiram & Charizard GX Figure collection alongside a rather cool mini-figure of Reshiram & Charizard. It came in both standard and full art versions. The card was sought after by both collectors and competitive TCG players. It's possibly the nicest looking Reshirard card for me.Illustrasted by Ryota Murayama. The pull rate on this card was pretty crazy considering its Charizard VMAX. These things were popping like wildfire. It's the first time we see Charizard in VMAX form with it's colossal 330 HP. Illustrated by CG Works.

Once the sun set on the Sun & Moon series the Sword & Shield series arrived and GX Cards were replaced with V Cards. Not only this but V Pokemon attained the new ability; to go VMAX (become massively bigger versions of their original Pokemon). And Charizard was never going to be left out of the fun. Lets take a look at all the V and VMAX cards featuring the ultimate dragon looking non-dragon. This card shows Charizard hovering in the air, wreathed in flames which I can only presume were of his own making. The cards descriptive text reads: " It is said that Charizard's fire burns hotter if it has experienced harsh battles.". Illustrated by hatachu. In addition to this news, here is the upcoming slate of Pokémon TCG releases for the third quarter of 2023:

The Charizard EX of the Evolutions set used the same artwork as it's predecessor from XY Flashfire (12/106) as well as having the same moveset and HP. Illustrated by PLANETA. This card is from the Sun & Moon Promo series and specifically was part of the Sun & Moon Team Up PreRelease. The one in the picture is of the STAFF version of the card. Sharing the same descriptive text as its Team Up main set counterpart " When expelling a blast of superhot fire, the red flame at the tip of its tail burns more intensely."

From left to right: Charizard & Braixen GX 22/236, Charizard & Braixen GX 217/236 Full Art, Charizard & Braixen GX 251/236 Rainbow Rare. Looking rather anime, Charizard 4/100 shows a Delta species Charizard with a rather healthy flame on it's tail.... Illustrated by Kouki Saitou. I have to imagine that Peal of Thunder must have been a pretty OP ability in its day.

Charizard V & VMAX

Left to right: Charizard RC5/RC32 from the Generations Radiant Collection, Charizard 11/108 Rare Holo from Evolutions and Dragon Majesty's 3/70 Charizard. This promo was included in the Charizard-EX Red & Blue Collection in 2016 as part of the Pokemon 20th Anniversary Celebrations, there was both a Jumbo and Standard sized version of the card included. The card is illustrated byKouki Saitou. From left to right: M Charizard EX 107/106, M Charizard EX 13/108, M Charizard EX Full Art 101/108. The first Mega Charizard in the XY Evolutions set recycles the artwork and moveset once again from XY Flashfire. (Thanks to Sam T for this info). A fairly standard Charizard non-action-pose holo sees the zard staring at the holographic moon, a nice simple card illustrated by the notorious Ken Sugimori.
