Pokemon.com has officially revealed the “V Memories Collection” we teased last week! It will release on October 8th. No MSRP has been listed yet.
This collection is a combination of the two Celebrations products featuring Dark Sylveon V and Lance’s Charizard V — with an extra pin and coin.
It seems Gamestop may have its own version of this product, as the one Pokemon.com revealed is called the “V Memories Collection” while the one at Gamestop is called the “V Memories Box.” Gamestop is claiming theirs as a store-exclusive, so this seems to further indicate there’s a difference. Perhaps theirs will come with less items for cheaper?
Pokemon.com states the “V Memories Collection” will be sold through the Pokemon Center and wherever the Pokemon TCG is sold. This too is a little odd since the item currently isn’t listed by distributors, meaning hobby stores can’t order it. It also wasn’t revealed with the rest of the Celebrations products, which usually indicates it’s an item for specific stores.
Celebrate 25 years of Pokémon memories with Dark Sylveon V and Lance’s Charizard V! These promo cards bring back classic mechanics with a modern touch, combined with the provocative power of Pokémon V. An unusually shadowy Sylveon wields its Tricky Ribbon to keep your opponents off guard, and Elite Trainer Lance teams up with his partner Charizard to unleash an impressive Flamethrower. You’ll also find a collector’s pin and coin, plus a handful of Pokémon TCG: Celebrations booster packs!
The Pokémon TCG: Celebrations Special Collection—V Memories includes:
- A foil promo card featuring Lance’s Charizard V
- A foil promo card featuring Dark Sylveon V
- 6 Pokémon TCG: Celebrations 4-card boosters
- 2 additional Pokémon TCG boosters
- A collector’s pin featuring Sylveon
- A metallic Pokémon coin featuring Charizard
- A foil oversize card featuring Lance’s Charizard V
- An information sheet
- A code card for the Pokémon TCG Online
The Pokémon TCG: Celebrations Special Collection—V Memories will be available on October 8, 2021, in the Pokémon Center and where Pokémon TCG products are sold.
Gamestop Pro members will be able to pre-order the “V Memories Box” and other Celebrations products in stores starting Friday at 2 PM CST. After Friday, any leftover allocation will be available to regular customers. Membership costs $14.99 a year.
