Here’s All 180 Cards You Get in the ‘Battle Academy’ Box!

We now have photos of the upcoming “Battle Academy” box thanks to PokeBeach reader Anstett E.!

The box comes with three 60-card decks featuring Mewtwo-GX, Charizard-GX, or Raichu-GX (for a total of 180 cards). Included are two tutorials for the Charizard and Raichu decks. They ask new players put the decks in a certain order so they can learn how to play.

 

As you can see, each card features a silhouette of the deck’s main Pokemon and the sequential number the tutorial wants you to put the card in the deck. These marks distinguish the cards from their original prints.

The Mewtwo deck does not come with a guide. You must learn to use the deck yourself!

 

The included coin is metallic and oversized. It’s about 2 inches in diameter.

The playmat is thick cardboard that can be folded, like a Monopoly board. It folds four ways into a small square.

The box also includes three cardboard deck boxes, a rulebook, cardboard damage counters, and a PTCGO code card.

The “Pokemon TCG: Battle Academy” box will release on July 31st for $19.99.

    At first this def seems cringe, but part of what got me into the card game in the first place was a VHS in the 90s which was essentially a Pokemon card game tutorial.

    It will be if you've never played the TCG before, which is clearly the target audience for this product.

    Wait, so since some of these have the same set number as their original set (Cynthia) but with an extra logo based off the deck, are these still out of rotation?

    I think it’s a nice collectors item even if you don’t intend to play with it
