New (But Unknown) Pikachu and Mimikyu Promos!

New Pikachu (SM98) and Mimiyu (SM99) promos have popped up in PTCGO. Neither card has been released in Japan yet.

Currently there are no English products I’ve posted that are known to feature these cards, but it’s possible they could be the Crimson Invasion blister pack promos. We don’t know what those will feature yet.

This is not the first time PTCGO has accidentally revealed cards before they’re released. But I ain’t complaining!

Both promos are reprints but feature new artwork. Mimikyu is from Guardians Rising and Pikachu is from Burning Shadows.

    Now we have 108 SM Promos this year. These cards are part of that 108. The 108th card is Ash's Pikachu.

    On the theme deck post on WPM's Twitter, this confirms that Hydreigon got its second Regular Rare card, the first was from DRX. On the typing on the Theme deck, Kommo-O are Fighting and Electric, then Hydreigon are Dark and Psychic?

    Could the pikachu promo be from the shining legends collectors chest? As it's meant to contain a Pikachu promo along with latias/latios... But love the art on both of these especially the mimikyu....whatever products they are released in I'll probably will pick up.

    I love the look of the holo on that Mimikyu! I run them as one-offs in several psychic decks so i'll probably buy a set of them.

    @Tapu Lele was talking about this in Discord yesterday. Maybe they're getting pin collections

    Was thinking the same. Sort of that old school Holo-ish look from WotC cards. Very nice indeed!

    That pikachu looks to much like the burning shadows one, and mimikyu could be used in the same way pidgeot ex was played.

    I mean, at least the Mimikyu is decent and the Pikachu serves as collector bait. If we don't get full on competitive promos, these are a good second.

    I know the Pikachu isn't that great overall but come on, look at that pretty artwork. The Mimikyu does have its uses as a tech card in some decks, again great artwork. Wouldn't mind snagging this version of Mimikyu.
