How to Organize Pokémon Cards


Pokémon trading cards are an enjoyable hobby for collectors. Serious collectors know they must protect their investment, as well as be organized and able to find items within their collection. Pokémon enthusiasts often use the three-ring binder method to organize their Pokémon cards.

Things You'll Need

  • Three-ring binder
  • Plastic card sleeves
  • Rubber bands
  • Assemble piles based on card type. For example, put all Fire Species cards together in one pile, and all Delta Species in another.

  • Sort through the first pile, temporarily disregarding the rest. Put all the Energy cards together. Separate any special or rare cards, such as holographic or foreign cards, and place them in their own piles.

  • Organize the remaining Pokémon cards from largest Hit Points (HP in the upper right hand corner) to the smallest. Keep evolutionary Pokémon together from strongest to weakest.

  • Place the cards that you organized by Hit Points on top of the Energy cards. Place the remaining special cards on top of the Hit Point cards. Wrap with a loose rubber band taking care not to damage the edges. Set this finished, organized pile to one side.

  • Pick up the next pile of cards sorted by Type from Step 1. Repeat Steps 2 to 4 with the pile. Continue in this fashion until all of your Type card piles are organized.

  • Buy a three-ring binder and collector-card insert sleeves designed for such a notebook. Place the sleeves in the binder. Remove the rubber band from a finished pile and insert the cards. As you switch from a pile to the plastic sleeves, keep the cards in the same order. Place only one card in each slot.

Tips & Warnings

  • When you purchase more cards, you can add more sleeves in the appropriate section or use the back.
