In celebration of Pokémon’s 25th Anniversary, the Trading Card Game is getting a serious injection of nostalgia with their Mamoswine-sized collection of products.
Each Celebrations booster pack will contain four uniquely designed cards—all with foil treatments and a 25th anniversary logo—that feature characters from all regions of the Pokémon universe, from Pikachu to Zamazenta plus familiar faces like Professor Oak. This new expansion of the card series harkens back to the card game’s long line of popular cards throughout its history. These will be a special subset of 25 cards that are close remakes of iconic cards from the history of the Pokémon TCG, including Base Set Charizard, Umbreon ☆, and Tapu Lele-GX.
The collection of products associated with this line will be distributed over nine products. Below is the list of products:
- Pokémon TCG: Celebrations Collection—Dragapult Prime (available on Oct. 8, 2021)

After seeing how the Pokémon Company has handled the latest expansions, Battle Styles and Chilling Reigns, I am feeling much better about the Pokémon Trading Card game supply. Though this card series will be more intense, I think many fans will be able to grab the cards they want. I for one already know I’m going to spend too much money (and I’m absolutely ok with that). With this, I am very disappointed that the design with the Pikachu and the 25 on the cheeks is EXACTLY the same as the 20th anniversary (swapping the zero for a five).
