I make Pokémon-specific lists for collectors pretty often, and sometimes they request to include cards featuring the specific Pokémon in the artwork. I usually go over this list first, and then also look over my own collection sometimes:
To give some examples: did you know that male Magikarps have yellow whiskers and female Magikarps have white whiskers? That means the Base Set artwork is a female Magikarp. Likewise, the Vending Machine series Dodrio is a male (black necks), whereas all other Dodrio artworks are females (beige necks):
Some more examples:
Arbok has three different patterns available on TCG artworks:
Some artworks of Magneton (like the Fossil Magneton) has one of the Magnemites upside down:
And I could give loads and loads of other examples:
- Gym Heroes & Gym Challenge Charmanders both have a horn on their back (this one I learned from smpratte Scott's binder video) - Mantine's fish isn't a mini Remoraid in some artworks - Some Exeggcute artworks are missing the sixth egg - The Magnemite artworks sometimes have the blue/red magnets reversed in comparison to other artworks - The Team Rocket Ekans has stripes around its body, instead of only its belly - etc. etc.
Here's another from the Fan Club set! No hidden pokemon in this one, BUT there is something else hidden
This one was a discovery that I didn't come to realize till this year. In the background of Porygon you can see slot machines... AKA the only and original way to obtain it from Blue/Red at Celadon City Game Corner!
