Newest various english promo releases thread

I often come across news about new alternate promo’s (alternate holofoil patterns, league promo’s, non-holo versions…), that often goes under the radar.

In this thread we can keep each other up about upcoming or newly released promo’s.

I’ll start with these:

  • Someone found the Let’s Go Eevee & Pikachu themedecks.
    They’ll contain these new cards:
  • New card: Sun&Moon Promo SM186. Flareon
  • Cracked ice Shining Legends Raikou
  • Cracked ice Shining Legends Pikachu
  • Cracked ice Lost Thunder Eevee
  • Non-holo Dragon Majesty Charizard



Also, Build a Bear will be releasing 2 plushes for Detective Pikachu: Psyduck & Snubbull. As always, they’ll come with a promocard with a Build a Bear stamp. We don’t know which cards it’ll be.

Great initiative! Nice idea.

They finally released them?! :sleeping: :face_with_spiral_eyes: These were originally planned to be released on November 28th, 2018; then postponed to February 1st, 2019; then postponed to February 15th; and then no one believed the pronounced release dates anymore. I currently don’t see any on eBay, but if I understand correctly I can expect the Cracked Ice Pikachus any day now? Where do you have this picture from?


Yes, you could find it from today on now.

I found this info in the virbank city facebook group:

@poketrade Just came across a few of the decks on eBay after all by using a slightly different search term. But I think I’m gonna wait a bit to see if I can find the single Pikachu somewhere soon. Also curious in which other languages this will be released.

Anyway, thanks for the update. :blush:

As always, the pre-release kits introduced some new non-holo prints:

Unbroken Bonds

  • 126/214. Lucario (Non-holo instead of holo)
  • 184/214. Red’s Challenge (Non-holo instead of holo)

EDIT: First post of this topic, I forgot about:
Lost Thunder - 155/214. Eevee (Cracked Ice holo)


May 18th at Walmart.

Do you know what stores? i cant seem to find any other mentions of this

They’re easily available in Europe, mainly Belgium (GameMania), the Netherlands (Bart Smit? ToyChamp?) & the UK (Game stores?).
Not sure about the US

Anyone of you people knows how much I have to spend at GameMania in Belgium to get the Melmetal Unbroken Bonds promo? Thanks

I believe it’s 25 euro. But I would just ask it, often friendly people over there.

EDIT: You can buy it on cardmarket for 1.90 euro excluding shipping

New detective Pikachu variants releasing in boxes and the dvd/blue-ray (uk at least).

They have a “Detective Pikachu stamp” compared to their previous releases.

Do you know when it will be released? And does it include all four Detective Pikahus (or the three promo versions), or only those two?


Source: Detective Pikachu Digital & Blu Ray... - Pokémon Global News

Digital: September 2, 2019

Blu Ray: September 16, 2019

I believe only stamped prints of those 2 pika’s are announced, no news about the others yet.

Been a while again!

The Blastoise GX Premium Collection has been released, contains these new variants:
33. Squirtle - Unbroken Bonds - COSMO HOLO
34. Wartortle - Unbroken Bonds - COSMO HOLO

And a new professor promo got announced too!

  1. Judge - Forbidden Light - Professor Program stamp



Stamped Garchomp from the new Unified Minds set. Apparently it’s a Dutch/Belgium store exclusive. Not sure if this applies to more than one store, but one way to get it is to spend ≥ 10 euros on Unified Minds products at Gamemania to receive a sealed copy of this card.
