    New Tropical TCG Accessories!

    How are the Pokémon Center sleeves when it comes to quality? Are they a bump up from ETB quality? Maybe even Ultra Pro? I’ve never bought any.

    Japan Getting TCG Accessories Celebrating TCG’s 25th Anniversary!

    ‘J Balvin V’ Promo Card Revealed for P25 Music Album!

    Didn’t this guy have a themed McDonald’s meal a few months back? That’s really all I recognize the name from.

    Some ‘Celebrations’ Products Delayed Until Unknown Date

    Here’s hoping Celebrations is the last hurrah for scalpers and other shady buyers. 2022 we get pre 2020 stock levels back.

    ‘Fusion Strike’ Ultra PRO Portfolios Revealed!

    Once you discover DEX Protection binders, you don’t go back. (And Dragon Shield for the sleeves, doubled, while we’re at it.)

    ‘Celebrations’ Tins of Lance’s Charizard V and Dark Sylveon V!

    Yes, release an over abundance of Charizard product so the rest of us can get the good stuff. It keeps the scalpers busy.

    Another Wave of ‘Special Delivery Bidoof’ Codes Going Out!

    Just checked Pokemon Center and TCG products aren’t sold out for once. On launch day. The hype is dying (which is good for the rest of us).

    Special Delivery Bidoof Shipping Out, Further Waves Still Coming

    I probably spend a couple hundred at Pokémon Center monthly and didn’t even know about the card until reading about it here.

    Pokemon Officially Reveals Professor Oak Card and Imposter Professor Oak from ‘Celebrations!’

    It’s bland, I agree, but it’s also not displeasing to look at. I almost wish they had used the second version, scaled down a lot, even something similar to the little foil Eye of Anubis square on a Yu-Gi-Oh! card that had the 25 symbol.

    Pokemon Officially Reveals Professor Oak Card and Imposter Professor Oak from ‘Celebrations!’

    It’s really too bad the English prints will have the ugly 25 Pikachu head that doesn’t look uniform at all. I hope they print enough Japanese product.
