Five New Promos Based on “The Scream” Painting!

Five new promo cards inspired by Edvard Munch “The Scream” (1893) will be released to celebrate a special Munch exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. The exhibition will take place from October 17th through January 20th.

😱😱😱😱😱

Each of the cards has a “Scream” attack that makes both Active Pokemon Confused.

Mimikyu will be released on October 27th in the mini album on the right, which will cost 470 yen. You’ll receive your choice of Psyduck, Eevee, or Rowlet at Pokemon Center stores starting November 2nd when you buy two booster packs; you’ll be limited to receiving one promo per day. Pikachu’s release has not been announced yet.

It’s unlikely these cards will ever release outside of  Japan.

Other merchandise based on the artwork will also be sold at the museum, Pokemon Centers, and some stores.

In related news, the “Red’s Pikachu” promo was going to be given out at Pokemon Centers again in mid-October. But due to a shortage, Pokemon has announced they will be postponing the re-release to December so they can give out as many as possible.

    Amazing cards. Way better than that (?inadvertently) Van Gough-like Mareep from Steam Siege.

    That's honestly really cool. I know Japan usually has it best when it comes to special cards like the Mario and Luigi Pikachus for instance, but using that painting really made for some unique pokemon artwork I would've never thought of. Now here's the part where'd I say it'd be cool to have them, but they're probably going to be Japan exclusive for the next eternity.

    EDIT: Eevee does look a little bit off when compared to the other ones, the Eevee itself looks less like it was drawn like chalk unlike all the others.

    I at least want a Rowlet. Psyduck is random. Would have been nice to get a Pidgey. All Gen one Pokemon and a random Rowlet is odd.

    Mimikyu is also in the set, so not all of them are gen 1. They just did five fan favorites for these promos.
     
  14. I want a new 'Duck

    One that won't look too scared

    One that won't look too flashy

    Or be drawn without his hair

    Ohwww shit. Buying on day one, theres no other way. After seeing Skrik recently in Oslo this year, hopefully if this could be a start to a brilliant campaign series influenced by other works. OH MY OUTER GODS Tomokazu Komiya is the best.

    Imagine if they did stuff for my favourite Munch, Love And Pain??

    I hope they make it outside of Japan, also maybe a hard hitting card similar to 'Round'
