The Pokémon TCG expansion based on Pokémon Go will be released on July 1st.
This is the “first wave” of products anyway, The Pokémon Company noted today – and already hinting that more are to come.
Aside from the booster packs we’ve already seen, there will be a huge variety of other ways to get your hands on these cards.
These include the three Pokémon TCG: Pokémon GO Special Collections, themed around the three Pokémon Go player teams (Valor, Mysticism, and… Instinct). Also includes a promo card (probably the leader of each team?) and a pin badge.
Other products include jars of cards, mini-card jars, battle decks, bundles, and something called the Elite Trainer Box Plus, which is only sold through the Pokémon Center website in the US, Canada, and the UK.
We have yet to see designs of the cards themselves.
