As with the previous TCG articles, every Ice-type of that Generation will have a card picked by me, based on the art. Keep in mind that my choices are subjective, so what I like might not necessarily be what you like.
To find out the cards I picked, please proceed.

The rough lines and flat colours on this picture give off this crayon look. It’s a perfect fit for one of the more simple-designed Pokémon of Generation 3.
When viewed from that angle, it makes Glalie look like it is not something to trifle with. Indeed, it is a killer if the PokéDex were to be believed. What’s more, it is shown in its ice habitat. The small space that Glalie is in makes it look comforting for privacy too.
It’s one thing to have a cute Pokémon there, but having three of them makes for thrice the cuteness factor. Still, Spheal and its direct evolution are Pokémon not seen on Team Aqua, probably because they are too cute to be considered evil.
There is something about the colouring of Generation 3 Pokémon that gives off an odd combination of colours, It might be that a lot of them are always in a lighter shade of whatever colour they have, so like Sealeo here has a really light blue and a light yellow (this picture made me realise this). Another example would be Dusclops. If you compare it with Dusknoir, you would notice that the latter is rather dark compared to the former.
In this picture, a lot of it is taken up by the detailed look of the whiskers. It looks like fur here, whereas the official artworks made those whiskers look like foam. The nice green made this artwork unique among the others that are mostly blue in the background, since the colours blend quite well.
This card shows how sparkly and bright Regice could look. It makes it look like it is truly made of ice, since most of the time you see how its exterior doesn’t reflect much. It helps that the crystal cave looks shiny and a beauty to look at.
That’s all for this TCG Art showcase. I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I have writing it.
Thanks for reading.
