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 forest looks like it just gone past the rough winter, but don’t take my word for it since I never experienced the four seasons. It just looks like it to me, which is what I like about this artwork. It’s also the only Snover card to not have lines on the Pokémon, which is something that makes TCG art so unique and appealing.
Abomasnow looks like it is raging, yet at the same time cuddly like a stuffed toy. The scattering snow also looks nice, since it conveys the anger of this Pokémon. When looking at it from afar, it looks like Abomasnow is looking at the viewer, but it is actually looking up.
Glaceon has the look that it means business! The shattered ice looks as deadly as Glaceon looks, yet you can see it is gracious as well, being the slender type while the ice looks shiny.
The scene takes place in the night where Weavile is expected to roam free and cause some havoc. There is also some nice contrast between the dark night and the light that comes from the city’s windows and the moon. Even though Weavile is supposed to be some kind of feline, it does not strike me as such. There are some cats that roam free at night, probably to hunt for food, so I guess that’s what Weavile is doing.
It looks like a rough storm is ahead, but that does not seem to shake the fearless and gigantic Mamoswine at all. It’s interesting how Mamoswine is quite colourful amidst the white land and the gray sky. It’s one of those things that make the star stand out from where they are posing.
With the resemblance to kimono that Froslass is, it seems very much appropriate that it is in a cherry blossom setting for extra Japanese tradition. Froslass does look like a human (which I could imagine people thinking of at first glance), which would seem less likely if you look at where its arms are, and how it does not have feet.
That’s all for this TCG Art showcase. I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I have writing it.
Thanks for reading.
