Just a heads-up...

A new promo box started hitting the shelves last week, which retails for approx. $50 USD.

Only thing is, they're NOT new promos.  It's nearly an identical product, with a different name.  I preordered it from a distributor, sight unseen, and was disappointed to find the exact same cards that were released one year ago in October.

Last year >> Shining Legends Super-Premium Collection

This year >> Shining Legends Premium Powers Collection

Both sets have an oversized card (Ho-Oh GX), along with Rainbow Ho-Oh GX, Pikachu, Shining Celebi, and Shining Lugia.  Last year's release came with 10 Shining Legends packs, and this year's has 8.  Since it's moderately cheaper (still expensive IMHO), this year's collection does not include the playmat, 3 collector's boxes, dividers, and the big storage box.

Caveat emptor.

Another Ultra Necrozma-GX (Promo SM126) was added to the game on Friday, October 26th.  It comes in one of the Dragon Majesty promo boxes, with 4 DRM packs and an Ultra Necrozma figure.

 

Note:  This is the 5th different art version of Ultra Necrozma-GX, all with the same stats and attacks.

With today's version 2.57 update, two Alternate Promos (yellow A) were added to the game.

 

Tapu Fini GX (BUS 39a)

Tapu Lele GX (GRI 60a)

 

Both of these are included in the same promo box, called Island Guardians GX Premium Collection.  It's scheduled for release on November 2, 2018.  With an oversize Tapu Lele card, and a playmat, this promo box will likely retail for $40 or more.

I'm going to wait until tomorrow (at least) to update this thread.  That's the official release date for these products.  As of right now, 424 cards were added to the game today, with Lost Thunder and promos.  There should be a couple more promos appearing tomorrow, so it's best to hold off on a final count.

 

We're breaking the 10k barrier in a big way, with at least 10,342 different cards to own.

Although they don't add to the total card count (different cards owned), everyone should note that the 2018 Pokémon TCG World Championships Decks have been out for the last several days.  These are the Theme Deck style boxes that come out every year, with silver-edge cards that can't be played in sanctioned events.  There are 4 different decks, which were released on November 16th.

 

Every year there's a problem with players (often well-know) putting these gameplay items in Public Offers, asking for prices that we would only expect from the Competitors' special release editions.  These "box set" gameplay versions are worth something, for sure, but they're NOT worth 20, 30, 40, or more packs that you might see offered in the game.  The newer, cheaper deck box and sleeves (from Nashville) are white & gray, instead of white/turquoise, and the coin (Pikachu playing a banjo) is silver, rather than gold.

 

Beware.  Caveat emptor.

A League Promo Trainer -- Lost Blender (LOT 181) -- was added to the game this weekend.
 
As with most League Promos, this probably won't appear in Public Offers for another week or two.  These are usually distributed at Leagues (in the real world) the following weekend, or the next, after they appear in PTCGO.

For a very long time, these 12 Promo cards appeared in the game, and were considered "unobtainable" (and not tradable).  They were never released virtually.  With the version 2.59 update, these 12 cards were removed from the Online game entirely (December 11, 2018).

Elgyem BW55
Espeon BW92
Flareon BW88
Glaceon BW90
Jigglypuff BW65
Jolteon BW91
Keldeo BW60
Leafeon BW87
Lillipup BW52
Meowth BW35
Scraggy BW25
Vaporeon BW99

Before the Giratina promo (XY184), most of the older promos (in the real world) didn't have a code card.  The Pokémon Company compensated for this by offering the older promos as giveaways, in Prize Wheels, etc.  But these 12 early B&W Promos were never distributed when these free features ended.

 
This correction should help everyone calculate their Different Cards Owned, without having to always remember which ones were "unobtainable."  Thank you Staff.

The first Tag Team promo -- Magikarp & Wailord GX (SM166) -- was added to the game today.

 

With 300 HP, it's a beast.  I wonder how many times we'll be able to get 8 Water Energy on it for the GX Attack?

 

This promo box is released today, and should be available at local stores and card shops.

Six new promo GX's were added to the game.  They are all Eevee-related (aka Eeveelutions), and come from 3 different promo box sets, released today (January 18).

 

Each of these box sets come with an Eevee GX, all with the same Attack and Ability, but with different artwork.  In addition to the Eevee GX's with Ascension DNA Ability (which heals itself), there are Flareon GX, Jolteon GX, and Vaporeon GX.

 

Flareon-GX (SM171)

Vaporeon-GX (SM172)

Jolteon-GX (SM173)

 

Eevee-GX (SM174)

Eevee-GX (SM175)

Eevee-GX (SM176)

NOTE:  After looking at Public trading in-game, many offers for these Eeveelution GX's are much higher than they should be (compared to previous box sets).  Be patient.  Promos are often too high when first released.  Wait through the next few days if you're trying to "buy" them, when more players (rather than traders) have redeemed code cards.

With the version 2.60 update (1/29/2019), an alternate-art foil Charmander (BUS 18a, Yellow A) was added to the game.

This card comes from a small promo box that retails for approx. $15-16, called the Charmander Sidekick Collection.  In addition to the promo card, it comes with 3 booster packs (UPR, CRI, & EVO) and a Charmander key fob.

This is the 3rd Sidekick Collection promo box, with Pikachu and Mimikyu before it.

NOTE:  I'm not sure why there was a delay adding it to the game, but there may have been production problems with this promo box.  It was supposed to be released on December 15th, and it may have been, but I personally noticed it on store shelves about 10 days ago.  Nevertheless, it's in-game now, and should be readily available at your local card shop or department store.

Technical Problems:

 

When looking at the cards from the new Team Up set (post #95, above), a couple discrepancies and questions came up.  I've submitted a Support Ticket, and will update this thread when more info is available.

 

Basic Energy:  There were 9 new Basic Energy added to the game.  They have a completely new design.  But when redeemed, they don't add to the Different Cards Owned statistic, and they should.  Can these 9 cards be added to the DCO stat?

 

NOTE:  Assuming this error/bug is going to be corrected, I calculated the Different Cards Owned like normal.  Bear in mind, that it will be off by 9 cards until then.

 

Erika's Hospitality:  The only place to get the non-foil version of Erika's Hospitality is from the prerelease kits (Build & Battle Box).  But when redeemed from the Code Card, the B&B Box is giving out the standard Foil version.  Can this be corrected, and players be given the proper version?

 

Gyarados & Raichu:  This is just a question.  These 2 Burning Shadows cards (Holo Foils) were added to the game yesterday -- Gyarados (BUS 33) & Raichu (BUS 41) -- yet it's hard to know where they come from, or which future product they'll be part of.  Any ideas?

 

EDIT:  The Foil Gyarados (BUS 33) & Foil Raichu (BUS 41) come from single-pack Team Up blisters, sold in your local store.  There are two different ones, with either the Foil Gyarados / Non-foil Magikarp, or the Foil Raichu / Non-foil Pikachu.

Update on Basic Energies, and Erika's Hospitality...
 
...NOTHING.
 
After submitting a Support Ticket, and a couple e-mails, here is the response from someone at The Pokémon Company called TPCi Lead T3 (the quote below).
 
Somehow, this isn't much of a surprise. ...awkward, but not unexpected.  I knew we were in trouble when the first response told me to submit a Game Log the next time it occurred.
 

Thank you for reaching out to us.  Unfortunately these details are not something we are able to provide beyond any documentation or news on pokemon.com.
 
Thank you and have a great day.

P.S.  I did reply one more time, asking for another look.  Fingers crossed.
 
 
EDIT:  Another e-mail reply from TPCi Lead T3...
 

Thank you for the follow up.  Unfortunately as previously mentioned, we are not able to provide details on how cards are released or distributed beyond information already presented through the Organized Play program or through pokemon.com.
 
Thank you and have a great day.

I was hoping to hear, "Thank you for bringing this GAME BUG to our attention.  We will fix it in the near future."

 

It's not listed in the Known Issues on the Forum.  And should be.  Sorry to think it would be otherwise.

Yeah, they don't like answering those questions, do they.  I remember asking about Red Star Promos a couple of years ago, and they basically gave me no information.  You roll how you roll, I guess.  :cool: 


The truth waits for no one.  That which you refuse to see, TPCi, slips past you.  The chat function was never your problem, yet through your blindness, you have made it one.

Thank you Kieta, as always.  The mystery of these two cards is solved now.

 

I updated the Team Up post (#95) and post #96 with the following:

 

The Foil Gyarados (BUS 33) & Foil Raichu (BUS 41) come from single-pack Team Up blisters, sold in your local store.  There are two different ones, with either the Foil Gyarados / Non-foil Magikarp, or the Foil Raichu / Non-foil Pikachu.
