‘Legacy Pin Collection’ and Entei/Suicune/Raikou Pin Blisters in May!

As I previously speculated, TPCi releasing the Scizor-EX Box and Kingdra-EX Box in March and April is possibly a giant hint that Johto Pokemon will be coming to Pokemon GO this spring.

As noted in the Scizor story, when the Pokemon GO crazy took off, TPCi cobbled together and released completely outdated Team Plasma decks featuring Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. This was an obvious attempt to cash-in on nostalgia for the franchise as created by Pokemon GO. Releasing tins featuring outdated Scizor and Kingdra cards, both of whom are Gen II Pokemon that evolve from Gen I Pokemon, would also appeal to general Pokemon fans who don’t know (or care) the cards are outdated.

Well, here’s even more TCG product news that further seem to hint something related to Gold and Silver is on the horizon! Short of a Virtual Console release, which is unlikely considering these products all feature reprints that only America would cobble together, it seems we’ll be getting Gold and Silver Pokemon in Pokemon GO soon.

In May, TPCi is releasing 3-pack pin blisters featuring a pin of either Entei, Suicune, or Raikou. We’re also getting a new “Legacy Evolution Pin Collection Box” featuring Gen II Pokemon that evolve from Gen I Pokemon:

WHAT’S THAT? YOUR POKEMON IS EVOLVING!

If you’re a fan of the original 151 Pokemon, you’re familiar with Onix, Poliwag, Slowpoke, Zubat, Chansey, and Oddish—but did you know that each of those Pokemon had an Evolution that wasn’t discovered until later? This collection brings you five foil promo cards to power up the classic Pokemon, plus a Crobat pin and a hard-hitting Steelix-EX card for your collection!

THE POKEMON TCG: LEGACY EVOLUTION PIN COLLECTION INCLUDES:

  • A foil card featuring Steelix-EX!
  • 5 foil promo cards featuring Politoed, Slowking, Crobat, Blissey, and Bellossom!
  • An awesome Crobat collector’s pin!
  • 5 Pokémon TCG booster packs
  • A code card for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online

    Ho- I mean Johto confirmed.
    I wonder if the cards in the Legacy Evolution Pin Collection Box are new from SM2 or just old cards from XY. Who knows, maybe if it is old cards, we'll get a Surprise Bite Crobat reprint. The Steelix-EX is probably the one from Steam Siege.

    According to a tweet I saw earlier, it's reprints of the cards from their most recent appearances in the TCG (SM Politoed/Crobat, BKP Slowking, etc.).

    I would not expect them to all be SM cards, since Oddish is not native to Alola. I would assume they will be recent printings, so the new Crobat and maybe the Politoed from SM1+. As for Blissey I think the most recent printing was Phantom Forces, but it is native to Alola, so here's hoping we see a Blissey in Guardians Rising.

    Just when I thought I was close to obtaining all the pins I'm looking for, damn. I'm hoping if the promo cards could be remakes of the original Neo series ones but nah probably cosmos holofoil or the new water holofoil variant most likely.
    If Steelix EX gets reprinted after only being about 5-7 months old already still available it will be for me the shortest reprinted time I'll ever know for a card, excluding Tin promos since there not lazy enough to share the same artwork as there brethren.

    Actually, they did confirm that all would be making appearances, but only the baby Johto Pokemon have been released so far.

    These collections presumably are going to be a mess of non-matching templates, reprinting cards from random sets, and etc. Just a "goody bag" of non-complementary cards.

    I like the idea of the Legacy Pin Collection. The Steelix EX part came from nowhere. I would of liked to see a GX (such as Espeon or Umbreon). If TPCI wanted to choose Steelix, They should of made it a Sun and Moon Promo with different art similar to what they did for the Snorlax evolutions promo.

    If you can take 20 Entei, I'll take 20 Suicune.

    ...and 1 Raikou and Entei.
     
  15. You're both wrong; Suicine is the best :) I'll only be getting one of each of these though.

    The word "Legacy" on a PTCG product got me excited thinking of Legacy format irl. :(

    When I think of Legacy as a product name I think of the expensive anniversary die-cast figures that are associatesd with Mighty Morphin.

    the TCGO has a mega steelix coin in it but Steelix never had a premium collection. Is the coin from this?
