Your pictures are too blurry/small to make out the details but those all appear to be Black & White through Steam Siege era cards. I could help with further identification with better quality pictures if needed.

[img]https://www.professor-oak.com/images/Pokemon/Articuno.jpg[/img] It looks like the card number switched sides on newer cards (I haven't collected in years) and the symbol next to it is the [url=https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Rarity]card rarity[/url]. They've probably moved other stuff around over the expansions as well.

Considering there are pink cards in there, indicating the Fairy Type, which is relatively new, I'd say they're from X/Y series and onward. Though, there may be a few Black/White ones.

As someone who collected them since they started printing them, I'd say it's your best bet to just focus on the newest card packs. X/Y and onward, specifically. Any older and you might be paying a lot more than what they're worth, but you're paying more for them now than they were back in the day so...
I'd just say stick with the newest ones.

OH GOSH I'm in the middle of collecting all the pokemon cards in existence so I can help you out if you need it!!

First, I suggets going on pokellector, you can look up exactly what card you have and see what set it comes from!! It should also tell you the date the set was released as well and how valuable the card is!

I usually get them from a place called Win Condition Games (if you're in the Kennesaw area in Georgia I super suggest them!!), but I also order them off of TCGPlayer online!!

It really depends on how tired I am or how much money I want to spend that day |D

Ohhh If you send me some better pictures I can help you figure out what they are from or if you have any gems in there! Collecting cards is so much fun and there are so many cool ones to find! Like @kagura333 I get my cards from online. TCG Play is great! Finding cards in the wild is exciting, but I'm cheap and impatient so I just buy online XD
