Learn how to spot fake Next Destinies Zekrom EX 51/99 Pokémon cards with this detailed 11 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

5. HP

The HP or hit points appear next to the energy symbol, in this case lightning symbolizing Lightning energy. The print should be solid and sharp. Note the difference in font size between the "HP" and the numerals. Check the energy symbol and make sure that there is visible shading and highlights which set it apart from the background. Note how the character art extends into the border of this card.

9. Card Back

The back of most Pokémon cards features two mirrored Pokémon logos around a Pokéball. The color of the card should always be a royal blue on new cards. If you're looking at an older card there may be some light fading, but the hue should always be the same, regardless of the shade. Tip: Cards from Japan have different art on the back of the card.
