Need some cards?

The Pokémon TCG is one of the most popular card games, allowing players to battle with their favorite Pokémon. There are already many cards, but getting them all can be difficult. For those looking for a specific card or looking to create their own, there is the Pokémon Card Maker.

How to save your cards

Once you have finished creating your card, you will want to save it for future use. The Pokémon Card Maker makes saving your creations easy. You will need an account, so go ahead and make one. Once you are logged in, you have to hit the Save button at the bottom of the card maker and select where to save it.

What is the difference between Pokémon Card Maker and Pokéart?

There is another app that lets you create Pokémon cards, and this is the Pokéart - TCG Card Maker. While the Pokémon Card Maker is a web-based program, Pokéart is an app for iOS. They both have similar features but do things a bit differently in a few regards.

Pokéart is only available on iPhone, Mac, or iPad, meaning if you do not have an Apple device, you cannot use it. It does allow you to change the border and style of the card, as well as streamline the process a little more than Pokémon Card Maker.

You can use the Pokémon Card Maker on any device that can open a web browser, making it more available. While both programs have the same creative functions, the Pokémon Card Maker does not allow you to change the card's border.

Both programs are free to use and let you create custom cards or pre-existing cards. So it really comes down to preference and platform as far as which app you use.
