Next Wave of TCG Sleeves, Deck Boxes, and Playmats in August!

Hoopa Unbound Mega Charizard Shiny Mega Rayquaza Deck Boxes Sleeves PlaymatsI wonder how many people will remember this news story by August. Between now and then, I’ll get hundreds of e-mails from readers who missed this news story and will ask why I didn’t post it. :p

In December, Pokemon released a batch of card supplies that were originally sold in Japan: they featured Hoopa Unbound, Mega Charizard, and Shiny Mega Rayquaza. Each of them were featured on card sleeves, deck boxes, and playmats, as you can see to the right. You can buy them in stores now.

Well, it seems we’ll be getting a set of Japanese card supplies every year, as we have now learned that the next wave will be released in August! They will feature Mega Gengar, shiny Mega Gyarados, Mega Mewtwo (X/Y), and Mega Lucario. All four Pokemon will be released as both deck boxes and card sleeves. Mega Mewtwo and shiny Mega Gyarados will also be released as playmats.

All of the aforementioned Pokemon were released as card sleeves in Japan, so these will likely be the card sleeves we’ll get in America:
