Mewtwo-GX, Charizard-GX, Raichu-GX, Wigglytuff-GX, Pinsir-GX, Gyarados-GX!

CoroCoro magazine has revealed the “Family Pokemon Card Game” box that will release on March 15th. We first posted about this product in November with the SM10 Double Blaze announcement.

As you can see above, the box will come with decks featuring Mewtwo-GX, Charizard-GX, Raichu-GX, Wigglytuff-GX, Pinsir-GX, and Gyarados-GX. It appears all of the cards are new — they seem to feature one attack (with no effect) and a GX attack. The cards are probably “simple” since the product is aimed at young children and their families.

The product will come with a large coin to make it easier for children to flip their coins and bands to wrap the decks in. It’ll cost about $20.

The cards may be revealed tomorrow on the official Japanese Pokemon Card site. Stay tuned!

    I'm sick of seeing Charizard and Mewtwo! I get it's a cash grab but it's like those and a select handful are the only cards TPCi will ever print.

    We might get it later this year. But, as of now that is only speculation on my part.

    I agree with too many Charizard, but that is expected, Mewtwo is a repitition, but it's actually quite a while since the last Mewtwo GX, so it's not too bad. I'm a bit surprised about Gyarados.
    I don't think any of those will be good, but giving Wigglytuff a GX makes up for everything that is unnecessary about this.

    The TCG's recent obsession with Charizard is bordering on desperate tbh. Yes it was always a popular Pokemon but this is Charizard's fifth or sixth print in a year and a half, it's pathetic.

    Stahp giving me Charizard.
    W_E_L_L, if this product is aimed at younger people who aren’t into the game yet, Charizard seems perfectly reasonable. Plus, it’s not good. It’s an effectless attack and a GX attack, which might be interesting.
    Oh goodie, Mewtwo’s back. At least Mewtwo isn’t printed as much as Charizard.
    Neither is Raichu. I wish it would be Alolan, though! I was honestly expecting a Pikachu GX, but Raichu is okay.
    Is this Gyarados going to be better than CIN Gyarados GX? Probably!
    Pinsir and Wigglytuff are pleasant unexpected surprises! I want to see how this goes.
    Overall, with just an effectless attack and a GX attack, I don’t think these cards will see play at all.
    I can’t help but notice how all of these are Gen 1. I’m half angry at TPCI for printing more Gen 1 over and over and over and over an over and over and over again and kind of ramming it down our throats, but after all, these folks are supposed to be “starting” the game, so it seems relevant to start them off at the beginning.
    I’m displeased, overall. Charizard and Mewtwo, everything is just an effectless attack. Whatever.

    Surprised if it's geared towards kids they wouldn't release a Mew GX which makes me think they are holding of on Mew to sell it in some box. Pinsir getting a GX is awesome, and gives me hope Heracross will finally get one. Wigglytuff is also a pleasant surprise.

    Well it's gonna be simplified so I expect their designs to be similar to what MTG did to their recent Intro packs, which is making the planeswalker in said decks in the creators own words, "expensive to cast and flashy", but hey, I'll reserve judgment until these actually get revealed and translated. You never know, that Mewtwo might be a good Malamar tech or maybe the Charizard is better than the one in Burning Shadows, maybe they'll be something and that will be all that matters.

    Well, assuming they come to North America in the first place.

    I think you're stretching it a bit, it's not like we're in the XY era anymore. I've made this argument before about how this era is more diverse than the last few but I won't go into it much, I'm sure people see me as a broken record by this point.

    I'm just happy about Pinsir and Wigglytuff, such strange choices for GXs but I absolutely love it. Can't wait to see them more in-depth.

    EDIT-Also for those so concerned by the increase in generation 1 pokemon, just remember that Let's Go is out, being a game that probably attracted new fans. Pokemon wants to use these opportunities (Eevee decks, brock/misty decks, these) to attract new players and get them into the hobby. It makes perfect sense to me.

    You had me at Wiggytuff GX.

    If it helps get kids in the game, then great.

    Normally, I would agree with the “too much Charizard” view. However, remember that this is aimed at a younger audience. It will probably help get kids interested in playing the game if the big fire dragon that is the mascot (more or less, we all know Umbreon is the real mascot here) of Pokémon is the big card in their deck. Also, I gotta say, about time some underloved Pokémon (Pinsir and Wigglytuff) get some cards! Now I just need a Bisharp GX...

    I know most people are tired of Charizard, but personally I don't mind them releasing one now and then because anything Charizard is going to be worth some money and also go up in value.

    From the looks of it, seems like they all only have 2 attacks. 1 regular and 1 gx. How odd.

    It says in the post that they only have those to add a level of “simplicity” to these prepare decks for newbies.
