Premier 'Pokemon Platinum' Products
'Poster Pack' and 'Player’s Guide'
Friday April 17, 2009
Pokemon USA has announced a pair of products to supplement the release of the next Pokemon TCG expansion, Platinum -- Rising Rivals, which releases May 20 and adds new strategies and new Pokemon to the TCG.
The set follows February’s Pokemon TCG: Platinum release, adding 110 cards to the game, including several new types of powerful Pokemon and Trainer cards.
Platinum – Rising Rivals also includes new Pokemon SP and Pokemon LV.X, such as Luxray and Gallade, as well as five different forms of the Plasma Pokemon Rotom.
The Pokemon TCG Platinum Poster Pack comes in a 7-9/16” x 5-1/2” box that includes two boosters from February’s Platinum release, two three-card promo packs, and a promo card. The box also includes a full-size, folded poster that features all 130 cards from the set.
Also announced was the Pokemon TCG: Platinum Player’s Guide, which reveals tips and strategies for using all cards from the Platinum and Rising Rivals sets. All 250+ cards from the two sets are featured in this full-color book, including the four PCO cards. The Player’s Guide also comes with the Toxicroak promo card and offers tips for constructing a deck based around it. The ultra-glossy book is packaged to fit in the space occupied by two blistered booster packs.
Both products arrive in stores in May.
Cases include 24 units.
