    They're a bit fairly new. Most buyers would tend to purchase older cards. I'd say the braivary, magmortar and seismetoad could get something.

    Looking at the cards and the condition they're in, among other things, I'd say that they're worth approximately 1 cookie and dibs on the swing-set.

    some of these cards must be fake... the grammar/english is terrible, some cards have hp in the thousands, etc...

    Magmortar with 12000 HP? :P (Unless they added two zeroes to HP for some reason in the more recent generations?)

    most of them look fake to me. you got some cards with 1000+ hp and other with 0 hp(magneton). i realy doubt that nintendo, game freak and the company that makes them would let such errors pass

    They are all fake cards and really poor quality ones at that, not worth anything

    A quick looks tells me that most all of them are fake, and even the ones that might be real likely aren't if that many are fake. For example, check out the apostrophes on a lot of the card explanations, among other issues, notice how there's always a weird space before before and after it. Pretty sure official cards wouldn't sometimes be able to handle an apostrophe correctly, while others can't. To top that off, there are the grammar issues that were mentioned in general (like a number and a word running together), and the unrealistic HP numbers on most of the Pokemon.

    All in all, this stack of cards is barely worth the paper they were printed on, if even that much.

    if you have a cousin or nephew that plays pokemon cards, gift them to him. a smile might be the best thing you get out of it

    can we have another person saying that they are fake, just in case the op needs to be reassured?

    I hope you didn't spend any money on those, cuz you're sure as hell not getting it back. Fake ass cards are obviously fake.

    I'm not sure but I have a sneaking suspicion the cards might be fake.
