ABOUT THIS PROMO SERIES- no cards described below are included unless titled/pictured in this listing. The Unnumbered Promotional cards refer to a collection of Japanese promotional cards from the Pokémon Trading Card Game that have no collection number. Unlike the English Miscellaneous Promotional cards, which are typically variant reprints of cards found in expansions, the Unnumbered Promotional cards are often standalone prints released in conjunction with current events in other areas of the Pokémon franchise. Many of these cards remain exclusive to Japan.
Before the use of the "PROMO" symbol and collection numbers (first introduced in mid-2001), many of the Unnumbered Promotional cards had unique symbols and stamps. On occasion, if a particular promotional card was distributed close to the release of a core TCG expansion, it would feature the set symbol. As the TCG has gone on, some Unnumbered Promotional cards began to use the black star "PROMO" symbol, while some also use the suffix of a current numbered promotional set. This collection contains some of the rarest Pokémon cards in the world, as they were only available through exclusive events and limited to extremely small print runs.
The rarest cards are the those awarded to the first, second and third-place winners in tournaments. Several cards around this time also featured a unique rarity symbol of two stars, similar to how Shining Pokémon featured three stars.
