And once again, I LOVE the idea of remixing the old style cards (Birthday Pikachu) with the modern-day texturing!

I am SO in love the Pikachu V-Union art! It's like 25 years of Pikachu all in 4 cards T_T
The reprints are beyond amazing too, can we do this every 5 years from now on?

Well, we finally know what Pikachu V-Union promo actually does.

Should I start making the Set List for Celebrations mini set?

The birthday Pikachu is absolutely amazing. Great holo style. I didn't even know that card existed, I only knew the Surfing and Flying ones.

Okay TCG experts, can we identify all of the artists featured on Pikachu V-Union?

The easy ones for starters:
-Bottom left is Kagemaru Himeno
-Above the 25th logo is Kouki Saitou
-Below the logo is Tomokazu Komiya
-Dead center is Mitsuhiro Arita
-Ooyama is obvious lol

On a somber note, I am sorry to see Midori Harada did not/did not get to contribute to the V-UNION card. I assume her relationship with the TCG is complete. I would've loved to see her on this card as a parting gift to her fans. Still, I wish her the best!

To the Pikachus at hand, though, I'm sure some will look at the number of Pikachu cards here with trepidation - the more slots he takes up in the showcase sets, the less your favorite gets a chance to shine! - but it's hard to thing imagine anyone better to use to celebrate the franchise. I for one love any attention the Surfing/Flying chus get, though I do wish they'd stuck with the Aoki artstyle.


Not a fan of V-UNION as a card format, but this assembly of all these different artists - even Komiya, bless - is such a thoughtful celebration of the series, and certainly will be the most interesting thing they're going to do with the V-UNION template. The hype builds!
