Pokémon TCG: “Celebrations” Marks Franchise’s 25th Anniversary

There are more cards to expect, as the Celebrations expansion for The Pokémon Trading Card Game releases in October 2021. On top of general excitement, there's an industry shake-up being planned: a remake of the legendary Base Set Charizard.

Pokémon TCG:

This year is momentous for the Pokémon franchise: it’s been 25 years since the original games were first released in Japan! To mark this anniversary, The Pokémon Company has been releasing different pieces of media, from exclusive music, to new games, even fashion deals. Now, it has been announced that we will see a special commemorative expansion in Celebrations, releasing October 8, 2021.

Every new booster pack will feature four “uniquely designed cards” featuring foil treatments and the 25th-anniversary logo, with Pokémon from every region. The big news is that we’ll be getting a subset of 25 cards that are “close remakes” of iconic cards, such as Base Set Charizard, Umbreon ☆, and Tapu Lele-GX.
