Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

How could you tell if the Pokemon is shiny in a Pokemon TCG card?

Besides just looking at it and deciding. Also, does it give any signs of it like a star or something?

The Pokemon will have an alternate coloring just like in the video games. You could use a chart of shiny Pokemon compared to regular ones to decide. I know that you said besides looking at it but that's not really hard. Some of them will have a star after their name but others will not so you will pretty much just have to look at it if I am not mistaken.

As you can see here there are no stars on this shiny Duskull (Stormfront SH2).

Here is a list of shiny cards.

Are they as rare as in the games?
I'm not sure but the I would guess they are pretty rare.
