Non-Promo Centiskorch Promo at Gamestop!

I’ve been debating if I should turn this into a news story.

Starting today, those who purchase $15 of Pokemon TCG merchandise at Gamestop stories will receive a Centiskorch “promo” card. Except the Centiskorch is an exact print from Sword & Shield. It’s not holo or anything special, despite the claim in the advertisement.

The promotion will last through October 8th.

Perhaps the giveaway was originally intended to promote a Gigantamax Centiskorch event at Gamestop. If so, the card would have had the purpose of exposing video game fans to the TCG. Or maybe it’s just intended as a fun gift for casual fans, like kids, who might appreciate receiving a free Pokemon card. Though that still doesn’t explain why they’re saying it’s a special promo card. It should have been holo!

    Copperajah is a holo in the set so that distribution was at least a variant. This one appears to be identical to what you could get out of a pack.

    You could spend $15 at GameStop for this card or 15 cents to get it in TCGPlayer. Choices, choices.

    I might accidentally get one of these like I did with the Copperaja.

    Why are they giving this out- this is almost as bad as Gamestop's Silver Bottle Cap event for Sun and Moon

    At this rate, the Promos for late October are going to be assorted Commons from Evolutions

    im glad this is junk... when they were supposed to be doing the mini binder and snorlaxV jumbo, they told me they werent doing it because they werent allowed to do events to attract a crowd, because of corona... and yet the store was open... i really wanted the Corviknight promo, for obvious reasons.

    Edit... Speak of the deVil, we are getting a Snorlax V/Lapras V collection next month.
