The Pokemon TCG Trick or Trade BOOster Bundle has been spotted early at some retailers in the United States, including Kohl’s and Kroger.
The set includes 30 cards. All of them are reprints. However, they feature a special Pikachu pumpkin stamp in the corner of the artwork.

Ten of the cards are holo: Gengar, Mewtwo, Mismagius, Dusknoir, Darkrai, Chandelure, Trevenant, Gorgeist, Mimikyu, and Hatterene.

They could've made like five new, exclusive cards and one could be that Gengar haunting pikachu (with different ability and attack). Heck, how about some candy items and a graveyard stadium card too. Instead, they just added an ugly pikachu pumpkin stamp. Yeah, not worth my money.

Here's an idea: make a chirstmas edition with ice pokemon, flying pokemon etc. and add a pikachu head with a Santa's hat on it. Or delibird head stamp. You guys know what to do.

I mean you're not really the target audience anyway. This is to give out to kids at Halloween, not for collectors to hoard.

Regardless of who the intended audience is the goal of every company is to make money. They could have done plenty of things differently to actually make these a massive success and warrant a mase print run but instead they made them generic reprints that just have a stamp on them

I agree but there is more than one path to do so. I think it's reasonable for them to believe this, as is, will bring a lot of children into the game and removes some of the reputation of it being a scalper's game to casuals, and ultimately give them more money in the long term. I think that's a reasonable take if that's what they believe.

Golly, can't wait for all the middle-aged white guys to buy these up and immediately invalidate the inherent purpose of these packs! Halloween 2022, here we come 🙄
I think you are referring to scalpers, if that is the case then they will end up shooting themselves. Parents will be like "eh, a pack of candies cost way way less". For the fun of it, I will be at a Target store on September 5th to see if these guys show up (and videotape them too).

I think thet will be specifically because these packs have Gengar and Mewtwo, and we all know how much of a boner white dudes born in the 90's get over LE EPIC GEN 1 Pokemon. In fact, I'd wager that if these packs only had gen 3-8 Pokemon, nobody but parents would care about this.

Bought 2 "bundle bags"(idk what else to call it lol) today at my local Kohl's, they are charging $17.99 before tax *shrug*.

After opening 1 bundle bag I completed 2 master sets and have 14 packs remaining + leftover holo's/bulk. This product was fun to open and the kids in my neighborhood are going to love it!

I really like these.

Sure they are reprints and the set isn’t anything to brag about, but I like the novelty of it. It’s like the Yu-Gi-Oh! advent calendars that Konami used to sell. It’s just something fun and that’s what cards are supposed to be: Something fun.
