Title says it all! 
I noticed how there was a lack of proper scans of Pokémon card backs so out of frustration I made my own.
This took a while to get right but I am happy with the result!
You can use this for normal poker sized cards or even with jumbos!
UPDATE 9/11/16: Took some of icycatelf 's tips to heart and fixed the logo and background!
UPDATE 9/13/16: I corrected some of the colors, it looks more legit this way.
UPDATE 9/15/16: Ditto.

Amazing work. Is there a way to get the same without Pokémon written on it ?

Good question!
You see, usually when you want to print out your own designs you have to sacrifce a real card, this way you won't have to! Also because of its high resolution you can use this for bigger sized cards as well!

I tried printing this with your old colours compared to your new colours and the old colours come out looking closer to legit colours than the new colours you've chosen. ;)

Deviantart likes to mess with my H/S/L settings, I've been struggling to get it right all week.

Isn't H/S/L associated with lightroom, I'm just guessing as I don't use it  and ohhh because it came out like a dark dark dark blue on two of my printers which have been configured to work with the paper and ink type properly :)

But still congrats on the work it looks very legit still amazing :)

I recreated it myself in PS, It was the most time consuming part of this project.
A LOT of brushes, blurring, gradients and glows 'n shadows.

It looks legit well done! and it would be cool if icycatelf let you use his card back background wiht your pokemon logo and pokeball. Thgat would look s perfect as the background on your card looks a tiny bit like a scan when scaled down but its hardly noticable. :) Check your inbox btw!

Yeah that would be so great! I tried fitting that one in too but it didn't quite work out because of the Pokeball.
