Pokemon 25th Anniversary has brought some highly anticipated products to market, as well as some surprising additions to celebrate the event.
New images hint at what would be one of the more unique additions to Pokemon TCG featuring artists from the 25th anniversary music album. Three images were shared on the official P25, Pokemon 25th Anniversary Album website late last week showing TCG cards with Katy Perry, Post Malone and J Balvin.
Katy Perry V shows the pop star alongside Pikachu sitting at the beach, Post Malone V sees the hip hop artist alongside Butterfree and Dragonite on stage. The last of the cards revealed sees J Balvin V alongside Charizard.
Each of these cards was drawn by different Pokemon TCG artists and has a distinct look and style. There are some subtle details that differ between these images and traditional Pokemon cards as collected by PokÃ©Beach, including fonts and word placement.
The card numbers on these three cards are the birthdates of each artist, which is why they look quite odd and don’t follow the same formula as the other cards.
At the moment, it’s unclear whether fans will ever get their hands on physical cards featuring these designs or if they’re just mockups to promote the record. But the official PokÃ©mon Instagram shared an image of a physical card on Instagram.
