Promo Mania!

Promo Mania!
By: Water Pokémon Master — Monday – February 23rd, 2004

Well, Pokemon news has been extremely dry this past week. I think I should start re-scanning all of the TCG sets since my debate season is over and I am home on Saturdays. Anyways, I am planning on getting EX Ruby and Sapphire done within the next few weeks so you can look forward to that.

Anyways, we have two news stories today:

»Target Store Promos: My favorite store for Pokemon merchandise, Target, is starting a promotion for Pokemon promo cards. When you go to the food court and order a medium sized drink, you can get 1 of 4 promo cards. The four are Mudkip, Torchic, Treeko, and Whismur. The scans for them will be up soon. Also, each card is packaged with a coupon that allows you to get a really cool 4 card frame for free when you buy any 3 EX items. (such as 3 EX Dragon booster packs) I will have pictures of all of this up sometime soon.

»Kids’ WB Promos: If you have been watching Kids’ WB recently, you may have seen their commercial for creating art for a Pokemon card. The Pokemon you are allowed to draw are Mudkip, Treeko, Torchic, Wurmple, or Pikachu. If the art you send into Kids’ WB is chosen for a card, you will receive 50 sets of the cards as well as a $500 gift card to Target. 5,000 First Prize Winners will also get a set of the five cards. To pick up a form, you can go to your local Target food court. For more information or to download a form, [click here].

With Pokemon news, there are sometimes total droughts that can last for weeks at a time. At other times there are floods when massive amounts of news stories just smack you right in the face. This weather forecaster is predicting this month to be a flood with the information on the City Championships and EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua pre-release tournaments. So, check back every day this week for lots of new Pokemon news and more card scans.
