‘Detective Pikachu’ TCG Products — Full-Length Descriptions!

I previously posted news about several Detective Pikachu products coming to the TCG this spring. However, the full-length descriptions of the products weren’t available… until now!

The following two products will release on March 29th.

The following “Character Case Files” will release on March 29th. The product description for the third one remains purposefully vague. As posted in my previous news story, I think this is because it’ll feature Mewtwo-GX.

Detective Pikachu Greninja-GX Case File

A Shadowy Pokémon Haunts Ryme City: Greninja-GX!

It takes a sharp eye to keep track of Greninja-GX, but fortunately there’s an amazing Pokémon detective in town!

Celebrate the Pokémon Detective Pikachu movie with a foil promo card and an oversize card featuring Greninja-GX – both of them prize elements of any Pokémon TCG collection. And that’s not all! You also get a cool Greninja pin, and you can tear into 5 special Pokémon TCG: Detective Pikachu booster packs, plus two additional Pokémon TCG booster packs to expand your collection – and to uncover a few more Pokémon that might have been lurking in the shadows!

The product description for the Collector’s Tin hasn’t been revealed yet, as it’s releasing in May. Here’s our preliminary info from the last news story:

A Detective Pikachu Collector’s Chest Tin will hit store shelves on May 3rd, a week before the movie is released.

The contents will be a bit different than usual collector’s tins. It will come with seven Detective Pikachu booster packs, two packs from regular sets, a special collector’s pin, a notepad, a set of stickers, and a PTCGO code card.

The cards from our Detective Pikachu booster packs will originate from Japan’s Detective Pikachu mini-set, which will release on April 26th.

The Japanese set will feature 24 cards, excluding secret rares. Each card will be holo. It’s unlikely our English set will keep all the cards holo, as the product descriptions above would have highlighted it.

Since our first English product releases on March 29th, we’ll get the cards before Japan!

The Japanese set hasn’t officially been revealed yet, so it may be a while before we learn more about the cards.

    Prob not. The thing with the japan shiny set is it make nothing rotate this coming year. Japan has gotton by this with new ways they print sets with a a b and c in each set. Yes we have started to get the same thing but only for special box promos. We never had a a stamp insideca pack set. Could they do this in March ? Yes but with 24 cards in japan set ours might only have the same. Shiny set is like best if xy set whuch we never got.

    The hell? All of these 3 promos are kind of amazing!
    The Charizard one looks cool, but that first attack is insane.
    Greninja tho... That card is nuts!

    ...I didn’t expect any of these to be good. Well, obviously Detective Pikachu isn’t, but that Charuzard looks pretty cool, maybe not playable, but certainly moreso compared to our current Charizard-GX. Greninja-GX, however, holy woah! That’s a good Ability! I think that will get played a lot, for sure. I will play it.

    I would be scared if an opponent got that Charizard loaded with 5 energy. It's a OHKO monster.

    How? It accelerates itself, Kiawe, Naganel+whooper, Naganel + multi-switch, however, it doesn't matter. You can even use DCE and non-fire basic. Lookout!

    Geez... That Charizard looks insane. It’s still so weird seeing Pokemon this ‘realistic’ in official products. But I still say they’ve handled the designs very well! I love how you can see a bit of orange skin in the cracks between scales on its wing. Small details like that help make a cartoon dragon seem believable enough as being ‘real’ in the world of this movie.

    I had to reread Greninja’s Ability a few times. That’s pretty darn good! And Charizard certainly has potential. The prices are a bit steep, but reasonable enough for special products.

    That Greninja is legitimately quite good. I completely did not expect that.

    Add a Buff padding to Charizard, and he's 300HP, while dealing 200+/turn. What a monster.

    Getting the Zard, its not appealing artwise, but it would be fun to use in a deck.

    Love the look of movie Greninja and the card itself isn't bad either. However, it is not comparable to Archie as that supporter was used on Pokemon that either had an ability that activated right away or could attack for a single attachment. Still, it is worth to experiment with at least.

    I still can't get over how weird it is to see Pokemon with actually looking fur. I guess they have to evolve in design over time but still. Still hope the Mewtwo Gx is a meta changer.

    Detective: Good job. Interesting, but not playable.
    ANOTHER ‘ZARD and Greninja:
    Gimme a B!
    Gimme a U!
    Gimme an S!
    Gimme a T!
    Gimme an E!
    Gimme a D!
    What does that spell?
    B U S T E D!

    Seriously, ZARD is pretty good, and the Greninja is breakneck speed. I like them, but MORE ‘ZARD? REALLY?
