‘Alolan Raichu Box’ Product Image!

We now have an exclusive image of the “Alolan Raichu Box,” the European version of the “Alolan Raichu Figure Collection.” Both will release on October 6th.

The product image reveals Alolan Raichu is a reprint of the one from the Sun & Moon Trainer Kit, but with brand new artwork. They’re saving Alolan Raichu for a proper GX card, but still want to market it (hence these cards).

As posted before, the European “Alolan Raichu Box” comes with a foil promo of Alolan Raichu, a jumbo version of the same card, three booster packs, and a PTCGO code card.

The American “Alolan Raichu Figure Collection” comes with an Alolan Raichu figurine instead of a jumbo card as well as one more booster pack. We should have the American product image soon.

    The amount of booster packs doesnt drop. Europian boxes like these always have 1 less pack as the figure collections from the us of the same type. So if you live in the us you will still get 4 packs
     
  6. I was kind of hoping this would be new card, preferably of the psychic typing. Guess not though.

    Kinda pointless, isn't it? ^^; I mean having one less pack than the US release is kinda on the cheap move side, and most people will probably already have the normal Alolan Raichu from the Trainer Kit. Now if there was a GX card included, that would have been more of an incentive to buy.

    Eh, I'll keep my money saved for the XY Collection.

    (Also I really, REALLY wish they'd find a way around the whole 'can't include figures in the European releases' thing)

    Wow, I like it when mods delete information that's been true from a trusted user.

    Pure laziness on the part of Pokémon Company. I'm extremely disappointed in them.

    Or 2 BUS, 1 SM, 1 STS. Sometimes what we see on the image is not in the reality.

    If it's all SM that's pretty neat, so tired of getting evo and steam siege packs...

    Alolan Raichu is finally here!
    Too bad it has nothing to do with what we call "playability."

    The product image rarely (if ever) depicts what packs will actually be in the box.
    That's not how they do it. It'll probably be 2 BUS, 1 GRI, and 1 SM.
