First Pikachu Promo of the Sword & Shield Era!

A new Pikachu promo has been revealed from the Sword & Shield era. It features Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble in the artwork.

Pikachu – Lightning – HP70
Basic Pokemon

[C][C] Iron Tail: 30x damage. Flip a coin until you get tails. This attack does 30 damage for each heads.

[L][C][C] Electro Ball: 60 damage.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1

The promo was revealed on Japan’s 7-11 website. You can get it for preordering Sword or Shield from their online store.

I believe this is the first Pikachu card since the Diamond & Pearl era that doesn’t have a Resistance to Metal. Could this be a hint of new type changes coming?

The existence of this card also means full art cards will be returning to the Sword & Shield era. Not that there was any doubt.

Thanks goes to Tunu for the translation!

Update: Added a better image. It reveals the card is numbered #001/S-P.
