‘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

    I think it's between France and Spain. It was a question on Jeopardy, you know.

    A lone Farfetch'd stalks Charmander from the reeds, waiting to startle it, in hopes it will lose its balance and fall into the river. It's children have been hungry for days now...

    The art's kind of underwhelming IMO. Would've preferred something with a more unique style. Maybe an Imakuni?-style or OOYAMA would be better?

    Well thats a little oddish, but I see it now. Honestly, l'm feeling a bit embarrassed and a bit gloom.

    Little does the Farfetch’d know however, that a Squirtle is sitting in wait for the Charmander to fall from its natural surfboard for a similar reason.
