As noted in the Scizor story, when the Pokemon GO crazy took off, TPCi cobbled together and released completely outdated Team Plasma decks featuring Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. This was an obvious attempt to cash-in on nostalgia for the franchise as created by Pokemon GO. Releasing tins featuring outdated Scizor and Kingdra cards, both of whom are Gen II Pokemon that evolve from Gen I Pokemon, would also appeal to general Pokemon fans who don’t know (or care) the cards are outdated.
Well, here’s even more TCG product news that further seem to hint something related to Gold and Silver is on the horizon! Short of a Virtual Console release, which is unlikely considering these products all feature reprints that only America would cobble together, it seems we’ll be getting Gold and Silver Pokemon in Pokemon GO soon.
In May, TPCi is releasing 3-pack pin blisters featuring a pin of either Entei, Suicune, or Raikou. We’re also getting a new “Legacy Evolution Pin Collection Box” featuring Gen II Pokemon that evolve from Gen I Pokemon:
WHAT’S THAT? YOUR POKEMON IS EVOLVING!
If you’re a fan of the original 151 Pokemon, you’re familiar with Onix, Poliwag, Slowpoke, Zubat, Chansey, and Oddish—but did you know that each of those Pokemon had an Evolution that wasn’t discovered until later? This collection brings you five foil promo cards to power up the classic Pokemon, plus a Crobat pin and a hard-hitting Steelix-EX card for your collection!
