    Censored Pokemon cards?

    Like This Thread!
    Here's something I've been meaning to ask for awhile. Does anyone have a list of Pokemon cards that were "censored" or "changed" for the American release? I know there was the infamous Kasumi/Misty's Tears, which originally had a picture of Misty nude. I remeber there were some others, but I can't remeber.

    Can anyone help?

    The card in question, Kasumi is completely nude, which you can see here (nsfw, moderator may wish to remove link). However, when you compare the card with how Kasumi was portrayed in the Manga, this one's more innocent and harmless, more so a piece of art. Something I think is lost in the US card. The censorship is understandable (due to cultural differences), but I think it's a shame the original design was completely changed.

    Oh, “THAT” card. I got tons of that card back then.

    Yeah, Yu-Gi-Oh! cards tend to be pretty edited. Lots of religion, nudity, and gruesome images. But my favorite edit has to be this:

    Water Omotics, the Harpy family, Thunder Nyan Nyan, Gemini Elf, Dark Magician Girl, Dian Keto (good thing on that one) etc etc. plenty of 'em.

    Team Rocket edition Grimer was censored, too. The original version's eyes were peeping up the the girl's skirt, but the US edition has him looking forward.

    Team Rocket set Grimer was looking at a girls skirt and one of his eyeballs was changed in direction and makes him look crosseyed.

    Gym Heroes Misty's Tear had completely different artwork.

    Gym Challenges Koga's ummm something has a right faced swastika which they didn't want the american public to confuse it with the counter-clockwise Nazi swastika so changed to a generic symbol.

    Neo Genesis Moo-Moo milk also had different artwork, the original had a pokemon drinking from utters while the american just showed two glass cases of milk.

    I'm pretty sure thats all of the edits up to the current set, so either they have more restrictions to be America friendly or just plan things out better. And yes the game is still going with new sets since I know someone is going to ask.

    I think there was also a muk that was changed since it seemed like he was flipping you off but that might have been from another Pokemon thing and not the TCG.
