Pokémon cards aren't quite the generational phenomenon they once were, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Now, each one is a tiny nostalgia machine.

After finding himself in need of a new project while under lockdown due to COVID-19, an ingenious Etsy seller decided to tap into the ethos of the 90s and glue it to EDM by producing a series of custom Pokémon cards.

Created using holographic foil and recycled cardboard, the cards feature albums from a number of electronic music icons, along with cleverly crafted attack names and descriptions. They also come with an adorable little easel for showcasing.

Check out the custom Pokémon cards below, all of which sell for $13 or less.


As fans continue to wait for Skrillex's mythical solo sophomore album, they can purchase a custom Pokémon card dedicated to his 2014 debut, Recess. In a stroke of genius, one of the alien's moves is "Fire Away."
