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.

    Looks totally boss lol

    The attack is way less cool:
    Flip a coin. If tails, this attack does no damage.

    Minimalism was a mistake.

    If you don't like the obfuscated complexity of the new V-Union mechanic, you may console yourself with the anachronistic simplicity of this quaint Pikachu promo.

    Those sleeves would be a million times cooler if they were just the sketchy styled card backs instead of having the artist collab text on it and making the design off center and smaller.

    Now, I’d like to point something out. Yes, there have been many Pokémon cards over the years that have only released in Japan, and it would be really nice if they had all been released in the U.S. In fact, this sort of thing has happened since the very beginning, and not just with collaborative projects. But even if they never came to the U.S., it is still possible to buy them. In fact, they are made even more special by their own exclusiveness. I admit I would honestly prefer to make a card more common as opposed to making it a collectors items, but they are still out there. And, like with Japanese card sleeves and deck boxes and play mats, you may have to pay more, but you can still get them. It all depends on how much they are worth to you.
