‘Kanto Friends Mini Tins’ Will Not Feature ‘The Scream’ Promos

Last week, I posted there will be five new “Kanto Friends Mini Tins” releasing in America and Europe on March 5th. I stated reasons for why the tins may or may not feature The Scream promos, and we can now confirm they will not.

The tins will instead feature the following artwork:

Each mini tin will come with two booster packs, a metallic Pokemon coin, and “a Pokemon art card showing the art from this Mini Tin — you can collect and combine all five!”

This probably means the “Pokemon art cards” won’t be actual TCG cards, but instead regular cards that simply feature 1/5th of the above artwork. The Pokemon above are not positioned to have card text over them, nor are they positioned to be artwork on a TCG card. For example, you can’t fit that Squirtle and Magikarp together in the art window of a TCG card, nor can you put card text over them without blocking both of them.

Since “The Scream” promos are tied to a specific event and location in Japan, they may never see an international release.

They’ve rightfully been dubbed “The Scream” promos — fans will forever be screaming about wanting them! :p

    It looks more like Farfetch'd is watching from the bushes, waiting for his diabolical plan to be exeggcuted.

    It's lost forever.

    It's forbidden to the realms of Japan.

    I was hoping to see those on live-streams everywhere!

    Well, I can't say I didn't see The Scream promos not being what we get. But I see Kanako Eo's artwork, and I like the idea, so I must have these. Plain and simple.

    The lack of a Pidgey is lame. They love splashing in water. Also, that Charmander is a prime contender for the Darwin Award.

    If by "Darwin" you mean "in big doo doo because survival of the fittest" then yeah I agree.

    A set not featuring our beloved mascots wouldn't be fair if we didn't comment on them to moan that our beloved mascots aren't where there logically entitled to be.

    I very much like the idea of "Pokemon Art" Cards. Just something like the Topps cards with TCG artwork on the full card. Yeah you could say "Just buy the TCG cards" but from a collector standpoint - getting something like Topps again would be really cool.
