‘Detective Pikachu’ TCG Products Officially Revealed!

Pokemon has officially revealed four of the six Detective Pikachu TCG products!

As posted before, the set’s booster packs are only available through special Detective Pikachu products. Each booster pack contains just four cards.

Our Detective Pikachu set will feature 26 cards. This matches the Japanese set, which contains 24 cards before secret rares.

Pokemon did not reveal two products in their announcement: the third GX character case file, which we expect to feature Mewtwo-GX, or the “Detective Pikachu Special Case File,” which features a mini-binder. Mew and Mewtwo were mentioned in a summary for the Japanese comic book adaptation of the movie and Mewtwo has a role in the original video game. So they may be in the film and Pokemon could be hiding that for now.

The promos in this set all feature the actual CG models from the movie! TPCi says, “Collectors and competitive players alike will enjoy looking through them and building their decks with Pokemon seen in the movie.”

    Aqua Patch is a thing, that Greninja can do 130 turn 1.

    Please let there be a FA or something that is not realistic because I, personally, think that card looks hideous and I will never play with it.

    I actually really like these. It's a shame the set will only contain 26 cards.

    That Charizard is really good. Greninja is busted and Hemos is right, this is Bubbleman in Pokemon form. Any water deck can run this without having too worry about Froakie and Frogadier. The attack is pretty good too. Yeah it isn't affected by Weakness but for a Pokemon you can just lay down, I will take it.

    So glad for crimson invasion boosters being included. They must’ve run out of steam siege.

    I thought the same thing which makes me really like this Greninja a whole heck of a lot. Plus is a pretty good attacker that can be easily max potioned due to aqua patch.

    The Charizard is pretty ok too but is probably just too slow regardless of the first attack and also being a stage 2.

    Greninja is an answer to all of this stall nonsense.

    Assuming that the only mandatory partner for Greninja is Oranguru, what else do you even run it with? Quagsire? Magcargo? Other Greninja?

    I'm so happy with these new card releases, I just hope Pikachu will have its GX card. But honestly, that set release in Europe is coming out in really bad time due to Brexit. Since in Latvia Pokemon TCG products are not being sold and until now I was buying from chaoscards.com which is located in the UK, That what worries me the most if due to Brexit price won't go up so high that buying these products will become even more expensive than it is now, especially in most part Europe we have to pay for the shipping.

    Oh Arceus, that Greninja seems OP and game-changing. 130 for 2 energies without any kind of issue would have been good even on a normal 230-HP Stage 2, Now, on a 230-HP Basic-like, it seems too powerful to me, but let's see it. Starting 2nd it can OHKO any non-Prism Star non-GX playable basic Pokémon, and that's a big slice of cake; it just needs a starting Tapu Koko, 1 normal attachment and 1 Aqua Patch. Sounds messy but it isn't: you also draw 3 more cards from it, and with Oranguru, you'll surely get a Supporter... It may be paired with Clamperl and Gorebyss, for example, but in general, it works with itself and more Greninjas (and with some Max Potion healing).

    If they are really going to make 2 GX's of charizard, then they may as well make mega charizard GX. Heck, just make it have a free attack that says "win the game" while you're at it. Also, is it just me or WHERE THE FRICK IS MY HYDREIGON GX?! (I know this isn't related to the topic, but I don't care because that's how mad I am that there isn't a single one yet)

    It's a stage 2 pokemon and it needs 5 energies to attack. It is way too slow and won't be viable at all. Kiawe is not an option, because your turn would end, meaning your opponent gets to attack twice, and probably two shots Charizard anyway, which results in a bad prize trade.

    Hello everyone,
    For Detective Pikachu products, I would only say one word: Beautiful: ... although I imagine that the long-term value will depend on the reception of the film ...
