If this hasn't already been the biggest year for Pokemon in a long time, it's about to get even bigger!
2021 is the 25th anniversary of the Pokemon TCG and they are marking this event with their 'Pokemon Celebrations' release!
What can we expect?
The main set will contain over 45 cards, including four Pokemon V and two Pokemon VMAX.
Pokemon 25th celebration-themed product will feature “mini booster packs.” These will come with four holographic cards that feature a 25th anniversary stamp
These mini booster packs will be a subset of 25 cards containing “close remakes” of iconic cards from the past. It will be called “Classic Collections” and includes some of the below cards as remakes.

When can you order?
Well, we'd love to tell you we're taking preorders now, but the honest truth is that we do not get our allocations until a very late stage and unlike EB Games and Kmarts etc, we are unaware of the sort of quantity we will get. We are a smaller fish in a bigger pond I guess you could say :D.
We would guess the allocations will be presented mid-late August, and as soon as they are up you will get an email from us that we have loaded them for our awesome customers! (That's you!!!)
Please note: We will offer a limited amount per customer so as many more people get access to the product!
