Pokémon TCG Top 300 Revealed After AI Controversy.

The Pokémon TCG (Trading Card Game) Illustration Contest recently faced controversy when it was revealed that some entries may have violated rules by utilizing AI to create art or submitting multiple entries under false identities. As a result, the top 300 list was reassessed and updated with entries that complied with the rules.

Several names were removed from the initial top 300 list, and new artists were added in their places. The entries with names starting with V & K were among those found to have broken the rules. The updated top 300 list can be viewed on the contest's website, showcasing the talented artists who followed the guidelines.

Notable new entries include a charming Bidoof illustration by Kaitlin Jackson and a striking Flygon artwork by Emma Bieber. These artists have demonstrated their creativity and skill in capturing the essence of Pokémon through their illustrations.

The contest is now moving into its second round, where the top 300 will be narrowed down to the top 100 semi-finalists. The semi-finalists are expected to be announced in July 2024, leading up to the final selection of winners in September 2024. The Grand Prize Winner, Best standard card illustration Winner, Best ex card illustration Winner, and other category winners will be chosen from the pool of talented semi-finalists.

With so many astounding artworks to choose from, it's clear that the Pokémon TCG Illustration Contest has attracted a wealth of artistic talent. The controversy surrounding AI use and rule violations has been addressed, ensuring that the competition remains fair and transparent for all participants.

As fans eagerly await the unveiling of the contest's winners, it's a testament to the enduring popularity of Pokémon and the creative energy it inspires in artists around the world.
