‘Tag Team Tins’ in March!

Three new “Tag Team Tins” will release in America and Europe on March 29th.

They’ll each feature four booster packs, a “special art” GX promo card, a metal TAG TEAM GX marker, and a PTCGO card.

We’re not sure what the product description means by “special art,” as this is the first time a product description has used that terminology. It could simply be referring to new artwork or perhaps the special rarities for Tag Team cards that the TCG’s director hinted at.

(We don’t yet know which three Tag Team cards will be featured.)

    It probably isnt but I'd love the special art to be sideways, that'd be fantastic

    They’ll probably be alternate reprints of set cards if so I’d like:

    Pika and zekrom
    Gengar and mimikyu
    Venusaur and celebi

    My excitement level for this new set couldn't be any more opposite than it was for lost Thunder. I hope that they start introducing some regular GX is instead of these gimmicky tag teams

    Maybe I missed something but what do they mean by a metal TAG TEAM GX marker? Is it in place of the normal GX marker?

    Legends and Tag Team GX both killed it in the art department. (Though I personally prefer Legends)

    I understand why the tin pick pikachu n Eevee, but i felt like venusaur is a weird choice
    Felt the venusaur inclusion like a pity party because it kept being left out by Blastoise n Charizard

    If the special art is these alternate ones then will that exclude them from our English set as SR cards?

    These are not healthy for the game at all.

    Yeah, its the lost starter that never gets any recognition even though it was secretly the best.

    With all due respect to TPCi, it looks like that picture of Snorlax and Eevee eating sitrus berries was drawn with a left hand. :D:D:D

    Ahem. My starter in Fire Red.

    It was not pear, it was Sitrus Berry. Or should I say Sitrus Bewwy (Poke Aim). That means they're exclusion in the set proper

    I would be sort of surprised if they made that snorlax the tin promo, as its not a very desirable art style for western kids, which is mainly the product market

    They look a LOT more like pears than sitrus berries, but eh, ok. :D:D:D

    Why would they put a secret rare in a bloody tin? Pikachu already belongs to the set though. Only snorlax make sense..

    A metal GX marker? It’ll probably look pretty sharp.
