Pojo Note:  This is a very cool Pokemon Error Card Listing sent to us from Miroslav.  His English isn't great, but 99.99% better than any foreign language I personally know. And the information is excellent.  Thanks Miroslav!

Annotations:

code:                 - on new editions (since Ruby and Saphire to today) they are codes in left

                         down corner in form XXX-XXX-XXX. First six symbols is always fixed

                         on same card but 7-9 char is differend. On holo (too reverse or parallel),

                         rare cards is only ONE but on all (un+) common cards is more this codes

                         (2 - 3, maybe more).

                         In description they are code(s) which I know.

 

(1,2..., A,B...)    - signed varietes which I know
