Manufacturing Error Announced for Pokemon Center Elite Trainer Boxes, Goodies to Compensate!

The Pokemon Center has announced there’s been a manufacturing error with the upcoming Pokémon Center exclusive edition of the Chilling Reign Elite Trainer Boxes. They were supposed to come with ten booster packs, but will only include the normal eight. (Normal Chilling Reign Elite Trainer Boxes will still come with the usual eight booster packs.)

To compensate for the error, customers will receive a $10 credit, two additional Chilling Reign booster packs, and three cards from Chilling Reign: Galarian Articuno V, Galarian Zapdos V, and Galarian Moltres V. That’s a pretty sweet deal!

The extra items will arrive to your original shipping address by July. It was not immediately clear if you will receive one set of items for each box ordered. Update (6/23): They have confirmed you will.

If your preorder isn’t cancelled, you’ll automatically receive the items and $10 refund within one to two weeks of the shipment date. Customers may also choose to return their boxes and receive a full refund. All of this was announced via e-mail to customers who pre-ordered the boxes.

As posted before:

The official Pokemon Center website now lists two exclusive versions of the Chilling Reign Elite Trainer Boxes for pre-order!

Unlike the normal versions, they come with metal damage-counter dice (instead of acrylic), a metal coin (instead of a coin-flip die), and two additional Chilling Reign booster packs (for a total of ten packs). They cost $49.99, which is $10 more than the normal versions.

Evolving Skies will also see the release of two Pokemon Center Elite Trainer Boxes, which means they will be released with every set from now on. TPCi will surely fix the error for the next set.
