Flapple Promo Giveaway at Gamestop, Gigantamax Flapple Event Likely Coming!

We’ve received word Gamestop will be giving out Flapple TCG promos starting March 19th! This is the same day Battle Styles releases. You can get the promo with a purchase of $15 in Pokemon TCG merchandise.

We don’t know what Flapple card will be given out yet, but we will receive photos within the next few days. If it’s anything like Copperajah’s or Centiskorch’s promotions, it’ll be a non-holo version of Flapple from Rebel Clash. This would make it a unique non-holo print. But we’ll find out soon!

Update (11 AM): We’ve received a photo of the card — it has a special Gamestop stamp! This makes it the first Gamestop-stamped promo ever!

It’s also likely Gamestop will give out codes for Gigantamax Flapple, as they’ve done for several of the Pokemon they’ve promoted. If so, Gamestop will also allow you to scan a code through the Pokemon Pass app to get a Dynamax Crystal for Flapple. You can then encounter a Gigantamax Flapple at Watchtower Lair.

Gamestop was previously headed for bankruptcy, but was brought back to life thanks to Reddit users beating Wall Street at its own game. So it’s possible we’ll get more Gamestop promotions in the future!

    These reprints would be so much cooler if they would just copy and paste the gigantamax "x" symbol in the corner of the card art

    Obviously, the answer is that it'll be scalped by WallStreetBets users. #PrimapesTogetherStrong

    I wonder when they'll ever put effort into promos like these. I bet if they matched the card border to the color of the logo of the store they're promoting they'd actually sell and be valuable

    Would help if they were actually like the old black star promos and not just regular set cards with a stamp.

    They could even use an alternate art and use the same set card and have the art be the promo aspect of the card, but they don’t.

    Imagine they reprinted all the Team Galactic Pokémon SP, but changed the Galactic logo to the G in GameStop, making them Team GameStop Pokémon.
    THAT I would like to see!
    Also, when will they remember that exclusive cracked ice Holos are cooler than exclusive non-Holos?

    At the Dutch and Belgian gamestore Game Mania, they did just announce a Gigantimax Flapple event, so maybe it will still come. You have to drop your email adress for it and a week later you'll get the code in your mailbox. Over here however it usually isn't tied with a promo.
