But what is Pokemon Team Rocket? Team Rocket is the fifth set for Pokemon to release in North America on April 24th, 2000. This set touched the hearts of many children and adults around the world. Today they can be very valuable depending on both condition and edition.

In this fully extensive guide, we wrote on Team Rocket Pokemon, we go over every single Pokemon card ever printed. Right below are pictures of different Rarities printed for Team Rocket. Simply click on the picture or denomination to learn more about the value of a specific type of Pokemon.

If you have any questions or you’re interested in selling your Pokemon cards to us, contact us today as we’d love to hear about your Pokemon card collection or individual cards.

Team Rocket Pokemon Rarity

What is Pokemon rarity? The rarity of a Pokemon means exactly what it sounds like, how rare is the card? The better the rarity, the less were printed and the more valuable they almost always are. The rarity is located at the bottom right corner of the card, next to the card number.

Here is a list of all potential rarities you can find in a pack of Team Rocket Pokemon cards:

Pokemon Black Circle Common

Common cards will have a black circle.

Pokemon Black Diamond Uncommon

Uncommon cards will have a black diamond.

1st Edition Team Rocket Set Sealed Booster Box

Team Rocket Set Pokemon Booster Box

The value of Pokemon Team Rocket relies heavily on a few factors that we’ll go over in this guide. It’s important to know Team Rocket was the second set ever printed for North America. If you have genuine, non-re-sealed, Pokemon Fossil Set booster packs or boxes, you have something that can be very valuable! Please keep in mind, we buy all Pokemon from Fossil Set, individual cards, packs, and boxes.

If you aren’t interested in learning about Pokemon Team Rocket and simply want to know how much your Pokemon card is worth, send us a clear image of your card, front and back, and we’ll respond with our best offer within 24 hours.

Demand for Pokemon Cards

The first factor when figuring out the value of Pokemon Team Rocket is supply and demand. Like most things, there needs to be a demand for a Pokemon in order for the bill to fetch a premium. With Pokemon Team Rocket, typically speaking, Pokemon with fewer cards printed (supply) are more desirable and sought after (demand). There are examples of old Japanese and other language Pokemon cards that have low supply and low demand, but we’ll save that discussion for another time.

Pokemon Team Rocket card condition

The next factor is condition. Condition is King. If you have a Pokemon card that people desire, it’s going to bring money. But if you have a card that people desire and it’s in good condition, you’re going to have a card that’s worth a lot more money.

We’ve paid $50 for a Dark Charizard in poor condition, and the same card in pristine condition we’ve paid over $750 for. The same Pokemon! Condition is key when determining the value of Pokemon cards.

Error, Misprint, or Miscut Pokemon from Team Rocket

Not many people know this but the error cards from the Team Rocket have a good chance to increase the value of a card. If you have a card that has a genuine miscut, that alone can increase the value of a bill tenfold. We wrote a whole in-depth guide about misprinted error Pokemon cards you can check out here.

Market Conditions for Pokemon Team Rocket

The final variable when determining a Pokemon cards value is the market. Markets are constantly fluctuating for better or worse. The market for Pokemon is generally pointed in one direction, which is up. There have been moments of time, like 2016 with Pokemon Go, that really brought collectors back into the market.

We “pay up” when it comes to Pokemon cards from Team Rocket, whatever the market prices are. It’s important to remember people tend to think they have something extremely rare and valuable when most of the time unfortunately they don’t! But there is still a good chance you have something valuable in your collection.


Here are the variables to know: Supply & Demand, Condition, Error cards, Market. If you have any questions about your Team Rocket Pokemon cards make sure to contact us immediately. We need to see a clear photo of the card(s), front and back, to determine its value. We will respond within 24 hours with a free appraisal and our best offer if you want to sell your Pokemon Collection.
