The world’s favourite augmented reality game, Pokémon Go, continues to journey back to its card game roots as more cards and promo cards associated with the Pokémon TCG: Pokémon Go collaborative expansion. This latest special set is scheduled to release on July 1st, 2022.
The special branded TCG (Trading Card Game) products include an Elite Trainer Box, a Premium Collection, Collection Boxes and Tins. This new set will also focus on popular aspects of Niantic’s Pokémon Go with exclusive Trainers from the game, iconic items like Lures, Gifts and will utilize artwork that makes it appear as if the Pokémon featured exists in the real-world.
We’ve gotten our eyes on the third Radiant Kanto Starter set.
To start, the Radiant Charizard left us rather disappointed for having a simplistic illustration with a bit of a boring backdrop. The Radiant Venusaur on the other hand, was impressive by providing something to look forward to with a vibrant take on the Grass-type Starter which was perfectly complemented by the pink background.
And now we finally have the Radiant Kanto Starter with the Water-type Blastoise. The Blastoise’s Shiny is a bit more subtle than the others as it comes with purple skin rather than blue, with a green shell instead of brown.
Illustrator Masakazu Fukuda did a fine job positioning Blastoise to show off the Shiny color changes while also striking a dynamic pose. The first round of Radiants, the Eevee and Venusaur show that these cards can bring a more complete illustration to the table.
The TCG Crossover Event will be taking place this June in Pokémon Go and will feature the release of Wimpod and TCG Hat Pikachu.
