The Pokemon Company is set to honor its rich history by launching a new expansion for the Pokemon Trading Card Game (TCG), titled “Scarlet And Violet – 151”. Unlike previous sets that were inspired by the latest Pokemon video games, this new collection takes a nostalgic leap back to the roots of the franchise by featuring the first generation of pocket monsters. The Scarlet And Violet – 151 expansion is expected to hit shelves and the Pokemon TCG Live app on September 22.
Set within the context of the newly introduced region of Paldea from the latest Pokemon games, Pokemon Scarlet And Violet, the upcoming expansion will showcase all 151 original Pokemon from the iconic first-generation games – Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow. The cards will be designed with artistic impressions of the creatures navigating their way through the landscapes of Paldea.
One significant moment came in 2020 when magician Uri Geller finally gave permission to reintroduce Kadabra, a Psychic-type Pokemon, to the Pokemon TCG. This marked the end of a long hiatus for Kadabra, and it has been confirmed that a new Kadabra card will be included in the upcoming Pokemon Card 151 set.
The Pokemon Card 151 set will be launched first in Japan on June 16, with the English version following a few months later on September 22. Fans worldwide are eagerly awaiting the full reveal of the collection, promising a beautiful tribute to the franchise’s beginnings.
