The Pokémon series turned 25 years old earlier this year, and The Pokémon Company has pulled out all the stops to celebrate the milestone anniversary. From an album featuring new music from world-famous talent like Katy Perry, J. Balvin, and Post Malone to new anniversary merchandise, the Pokémon series has been ushering in its 25th birthday with style. The Pokémon Trading Card Game joined in the festivities, announcing a special Celebrations collection that’s sure to be highly sought after.
The Celebrations line of products gives players a chance to revisit the various eras of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. This bundle contains some of the most popular and memorable cards in the TCG’s history. The booster packs cannot be purchased individually so you will need to purchase them in special bundles. While you can grab unique Celebrations collections featuring foil promo cards of Pokémon like Lance’s Charizard, Zacian, and Dragapult Prime, those only include either two or four Celebrations booster packs (along with a few booster packs from other recent expansions). The best ways to gather the most amount of booster packs from the Celebrations expansion are through the Elite Trainer Box (10 Celebrations booster packs) or the Pikachu VMAX Premium Figure Collection (8 Celebrations booster packs), which also comes with a Pikachu VMAX figure.
The Pokémon Company sent us a box of the Pokémon Trading Card Game Celebrations line for our typical galleries of the coolest cards we pulled from booster packs. However, since booster packs are not sold individually for this commemorative expansion, the company sent over a sampling of the ways people can purchase the bundle-only booster packs.
The gallery below shows some photos of unboxing the bundles.
Each bundle features a mix of Pokémon TCG Celebrations booster packs and booster packs from other recent expansions, such as Chilling Reign, Darkness Ablaze, Vivid Voltage, and Battle Styles. These cards are from Celebrations booster pack bundles.
The cards in the Celebrations packs are largely reprints and remakes of popular cards from classic Pokémon TCG expansions, but with a special anniversary logo and holographic upgrades. The list included the Charizard original, which I found exciting, however, it was not something I could pull off. However, I found Gen 1 cards to be the most common. You should also keep in mind that this expansion has a low card count, so if you open many packs you will likely receive tons of duplicates.
Below are some cards that I love from Celebrations.
The first Pokémon Trading Card Game – Celebrations collections launch tomorrow, October 8, with others releasing throughout the rest of October. For more on the Pokémon Trading Card Game, including galleries of all the recent expansions, click on the image below to go to our dedicated hub.
