Full Answer

The easiest way to make your own Pok��mon cards is with an online Pok��mon card generator. Pok��mon Card Maker, an online Pok��mon card generator, allows a user to fill in attributes such as the Pok��mon's name, type, hp, picture, species and more. Simply press Generate once all attributes have been filled in to view and save the customized Pok��mon card.

Another way to make custom Pok��mon cards is with GIMP. GIMP is similar to Photoshop, but is available for free for both Mac and PC. Download GIMP at Gimp.org/downloads. You then need Pok��mon resources such as borders, energy symbols, fonts and type packs. These resources are available for download at PokemonCardResources.DeviantArt.com.

You can then import your resources to GIMP and design your own Pok��mon cards from scratch. Once you have finished your card in GIMP, save it and export it as a PDF. For the full effect, print your custom card, and glue it onto a real Pok��mon card. This way, the card will be the appropriate thickness and have the Pok��mon card image on the back. Be sure to use a card you have doubles of and don't care about.
