The Pokemon TCG Will ‘Revisit’ The Original Base Deck For 20th Annivesary

It looks as though the first edition Pokémon trading cards are going to be revisited in 2016 for the 20th Birthday of the Pokémon franchise, based on information on the official Japanese Pokémon TCG website.

The Pokémon card game starter pack will contain 60 cards with a manual and a collectors coin, and for now we only know that they will be available in Japan. The information section on the website, when translated from Japanese, refers to the starter pack that was released in 1996. Although this may not be an exact reprint, it will simply ‘revisit’ the original deck.

The first edition began in 1996, so it’s a great way to bring some nostalgia back to Pokémon fans to celebrate 20 years of Pokémon, along with the 2DS Pokémon bundles. Hopefully they will also be released in the West.

    Wait! Does this include that awesome Mew card they gave away as an exclusive to those that went to see the very first Pokemon movie in theaters!? I fucking lost mine many, many years ago… *sigh*

      Oh. Damn. Nevermind. I forgot it wasn’t an actual playing card for the Pokemon Trading Cards…

        According to Amazon, it is part of the trading card game.

    2. That sucks. :/
      Thought I had lost mine too years ago, but it somehow showed up again. After that, I put it somewhere safe so I would always know where it is.

      Certainly not in best condition, and it’s faulty too (left border too thick, right one entirely missing, hah), but I still love it.
      Who knows, maybe yours will show up too one day. :)

      1. Picture turned out a bit bigger than expected, lmao. Sorry about that? hah. But you get a better view on its flaws that way. :p
        Looks fine on mobile though, so that’s good. :)

      2. It’s probably not even worth a dollar, haha. But it has sentimental value to me, so I wouldn’t sell it anyway.

        …Well, unless it was worth a couple hundreds, hah.

      3. You really shouldn’t. :) You can probably get it off eBay for $10 or something, in much better condition too. Accepting your offer would just mean I’d scam you real bad.

      4. Hmm, considering it was a promotional card you could only get at the theaters, and not through actual booster packs or anything, I kinda doubt it.
        But you never know, maybe they’ll do it.

      5. I’m gonna search ebay. If I don’t find one under 50.00 then I’m going fuck it and just it from you instead for like a dollar or so.

      6. I’m certain you’ll find something. :) I looked too, just out of curiosity, and found multiple offers for about 10€ for cards in mint condition, still sealed even. Good luck!

        Not gonna happen. Anything it might have been in is long gone at this point since I’ve moved around a lot since it was lost & haven’t kept much of anything. If it has been found, it’s someone else’s card now because it hasn’t been found by me.
