Why are some Pokemon cards shadowless?

Shadowless Pokemon cards are part of the very first print run of the Pokemon Trading Card Game. They're called 'shadowless' because they lack the shadow effect on the right side of the image box that later cards have. This was before the card design was finalized, making them rarer and more sought after by collectors. Think of them as the first edition books of the Pokemon TCG world!

It's all about the bling! Shadowless cards are the OG, like the first press of a vinyl record. They didn't have the shadow effect, making them vintage cool and more valuable to collectors. Plus, finding one is like hitting a mini jackpot!

Honestly, it's just a design change. The early cards didn't have shadows, then they added them to make the cards look better. People make a big deal out of it because they're rarer, but it's really just about the looks.
