Yesterday I posted that Japan’s September set will contain some reprints from Base Set. Today we have an exclusive look at the set’s sell sheet, which reveals a few more tidbits! Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translation!
What?! Resurrecting the Pokemon TCG Base Set?!
The Pokemon Card Game has been on sale for 20 years! Cards from 20 years ago are being resurrected so that they can be used in the modern format! The Pokemon Card Game was born in October of 1996, and to this date is sold in 74 countries. In total, more than 21.5 billion cards have shipped!
Many cards in this set are aimed at former players! The reprinted cards use the unchanged art from that era. The set is designed to evoke the nostalgia of the era, the fun of opening packs, and the fun of collecting, as well as bringing new surprises!
As for current players, many new Mega Evolution Pokemon, Pokemon-EX, BREAK Evolution Pokemon, and Trainers are also included!
There are lots of cards that current players will want! All categories of Pokemon are included, and can be used to power up all sorts of decks!
Each booster pack contains 10 cards per pack, including one guaranteed holo. Each booster box has 15 packs. There will be 87 cards + ???.
As posted a couple of times, this set will likely become our November set in the United States and internationally. Then we should get our first Sun and Moon set in February.
