Pikachu Promo and TCG Box Set Featuring Artist Yu Nagaba!

Pokemon has announced a special collaboration with artist Yu Nagaba! He’s famous for his line illustrations.

Starting July 22nd, those who purchase 1,500 yen or more of product from Pokemon Centers will receive a Pikachu promo illustrated by him.

Pokemon is also releasing a special TCG box set featuring his illustrations. It will come with a rubber playmat, card sleeves, a deck box, a card storage box, and a smartphone ring accessory. It will cost 6,226 yen.


You must enter a lottery to buy the box via the PUBLIC TOKYO Online Store. Applications will be taken from June 18th to 28th. Results will be announced July 9th and the product will start shipping July 22nd. The Pokemon Center will also have a lottery, but the dates haven’t been announced.

You will also get the Pikachu promo if you purchase the TCG box or buy other items from the collaboration at PUBLIC TOKYO, like these t-shirts:

As with most special collaborations, it’s unlikely the promo card will release outside Japan.
