We now have photos for the “My First Battle” products! They officially released yesterday for $9.99 each.
While this product is intended for new players to learn how to play, it also includes unique cards that collectors may want.
Each product comes with two 17-card mini decks. One box features two decks for Bulbasaur and Pikachu while the other box features two decks for Charmander and Squirtle.
The Pokemon cards in each deck are brand new. They haven’t been released in Japan. Lately it seems TPCi is releasing cards exclusively in some countries, so it remains to be seen if these cards will release in Japan.
All of the cards feature a special “My First Battle” back instead of the standard Pokemon card back with the Poke Ball. This makes them illegal for tournament play.
Two cards in each deck feature unique blue borders: Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Grass Energy, Fire Energy, Water Energy, and Lightning Energy. This is because the rule book directs players to start their games with these cards.
As posted before, all of the cards lack Weakness, Resistance, and Retreat Cost to make them simpler for new players.
Each box also includes a coin, two playmats, damage counters, special Prize tokens, and guides. Each playmat is specific to its deck, instructing players where to place each card.
And here’s some bonus wallpaper!
Thanks goes to Austin G. for sending us photos!
