The Pokemon Center has started shipping the promised compensation for the Chilling Reign Elite Trainer Box error! The items comes inside a special blister pack.

The blister pack also comes with a Raikou coin, which wasn’t announced previously. A surprise bonus!

I was just wondering about these. I should be getting two, so I guess I can keep one sealed as well. Nice.

Wow! Looks like TPCI went the extra mile with this one! Maybe they don’t do things exactly the way we would prefer, but you can’t say that they don’t care! They even threw in an unannounced coin! Those coins are always fun to collect; their only fault, from a collectors point of view, is how hard they are to display! (Plus, if you don’t need to coin yourself, you can always give it to a local small fry who shares your passion for Pokémon. Kids love these things.) Have we already gotten a Raikou coin like this? It’s hard to tell since older coins keep being reused in newer products (which makes collecting them far more manageable, it just makes keeping track of what coins are new coins harder).
I do, however, feel sorry for everyone who will be torn between the strong desire to open this product and the equally strong desire to hold onto it as a collectors item. There are times when making something even better than you thought it would be can be a nuisance and an inconvenience, and if you’re one of those people who likes collecting or investing in sealed products and was expecting these to arrive as individual items, this is probably going to be one of those times.

This is awesome. An exclusive sealed apology gift to those who bought from the Pokemon Center website and got less than they expected.

I have a Raikou like that in my collection. Looks like a normal mirror gold finish, right?

It is cool that they've made an effort here but, on the other hand, what an unnecessary waste of card and plastic.

Agreed. It's like a rip or keep sitch. So all of the 9 y/o’s that ripped it didn't know it was worth so much in the future cause it's a special blister.

Can’t wait for Logan Paul to box with one and claim it’s worth $3,000,000.

This is so much cooler than I expected. I fully expected 2 loose packs and 3 sleeved V cards. Now I have 2 and I almost have to keep one of them for the sealed collection. This kind of product probably won't ever be sold in stores.
