Fans that manage to buy 4 booster packs in Pokemon Centres scattered across Japan will also receive 25th Anniversary Edition promo packs featuring reprints of old Pokemon cards like Birthday Pikachu and Base Set Venusaur.
The 25th Anniversary Collection will be released on October 22 in Japan, yet sadly it hasn’t been announced whether it will make it overseas.
