What is your favorite Japanese promo?

If I only have to choose 1 Japanese Promo, I’d choose Masaki Omastar …
T Promos are awesome too … especially, Vol.18 & Vol.19

There are so many great promos so it’s tough to choose only one. But, probably this one is my favorite since it has all the starters I grew up with

I cannot really say why, but I just love the vibes of this card.

For the longest time, I never thought this card was anything special. I assumed it had a generic background because the holo pattern dominated the background from all the angles I had seen. Then one day someone posted a photo where you could clearly see the Game Corner slot machines in the background and my opinion on this card immediately changed. One day I will add this to my collection.

I didn’t realize for the longest time that the Neo Premium File 2 Eevee was a JPN exclusive. Probably my favorite out of the bunch and still surprising they didn’t have an English version considering that completes the photo with the Umbreon and Espeon cards in that set.

This is my holy grail. One day.

I completely agree with all of this. Such a fun concept for this card and a shame they don’t do stuff like this today.

Sadly, I’ll never be able to afford the OG card so I had to settle for the Web version :sweat_smile:

Exactly! Same. In early 2023 I began my “collect all eevees” crusade. Along the way I found E4. The premium file was one of the first cards where I was like I know I should know that exists, but why doesn’t it, given the Espeon/umbreon arts were released in the west. The premium file one was my first in an admittedly long line of purchases over the past year

My favorite one I own is probably my 15th Anniversary Pikachu because I got it for $60 back in 2013 and at the time, it felt like the first “professional” step towards working on a Pikachu collection. <3 A good memory.

My favorite one in general is one I don’t own (yet): the Screaming Pikachu promo card. I just love the art and The Scream is one of my favorite paintings.

Also the intentional color choice of blue, red and green for the original gameboy games!
