Scarlet and Violet Base Card List: Top Ten Chase Cards

Scarlet and Violet Base card list: Top 10 chase cards

Chances are if you are reading this, you already know what a ‘chase card’ is- but for those that don’t…Every expansion set that Pokemon releases has its own unique number and kind of cards. Some of the cards are very rare based on the low number that were printed and included in the release. The more rare a card- the more likely it will become more valuable.Some Pokemon (and trainers) are much more ‘loved’ than others. For example, Pikachu is loved by many people from all sectors of the Pokemon world- not just players or collectors.Finally, every set has cards that are much more playable than other cards and those that play the TCG games will seek sets (a set of 4 cards) of particular cards that manage to give them a competitive advantage.When all three factors (or sometimes two of the three) combined in one card, that card becomes a ‘chase card’. A card that everyone wants to pull when they are opening Pokemon Packs…Pulling a chase card is like winning a big lottery and can be a lot of fun, and Scarlet and Violet Base doesn’t disappoint when you connect with one of these Pokemon.

Top 10 Scarlet and Violet Base chase card list

There is a little subjectivity to my selection of the Scarlet and Violet Base top chase cards- but I base it on current market value of the single cards. I feel that the more value a Pokemon TCG card has, the more desirable it must be to pull from a Pokémon TCG pack.
