With the release of each series in the Pokémon Trading Card Game comes a plethora of collectible merchandise, and the Black & White Series is no exception. In order to release special promotional cards, booster packs, and other merchandise, promotional items such as Collector's Tins and Value Boxes are distributed. The following is a list of the merchandise released during the BW era of the trading card game.

Sneak-Peek Tins

To start off the Black & White Series for the English trading card game is the release of the Sneak-Peek Tins. Released on March 9th, 2011, these tins introduce the first Generation V Pokémon to the TCG. Each tin features one of the three starters--Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott--in the form of both a promotional card and a figure, as well as a preview pack of five other Generation V Pokémon. The three cards featured in the tin feature new artwork than when released in Japan in the Journey Partners collection. Each tin also contains four booster packs from the Platinum Series, HeartGold & SoulSilver Series, and Call of Legends.

Black & White Theme Decks

Theme Decks are an integral part of the trading card game, being released with just about every one of the main expansions. Furthering the release of the Generation V Pokémon, the three theme decks for the Black & White expansion feature the final evolutions for Unova's starter Pokémon: Serperior, Emboar, and Samurott. The Green Tornado, Red Frenzy, and Blue Assault theme decks were released on April 6th, 2011: roughly three weeks before the main expansion. These three theme decks each contain a code for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online, allowing players to use these theme decks while battling in the game.

Black & White Blisters

The release of Black & White brought the addition of both Three Pack Blisters and Two Pack Blisters. Released April 25th, 2011, the Three Pack Blisters came in three varieties: each one featuring one of the three Unova starters as a promotional card, three Black & White booster packs, a Black & White preview pack containing three Common cards from the set, and a coin featuring the starters. The Two Pack Blisters contain one Black & White booster pack, one preview pack, and one of four promotional cards. The three starter Pokémon were the same as those in the Three Pack Blisters, but the Ducklett promotional card could only be found in two pack blisters.

In order to teach beginning players how to play the Pokémon Trading Card Game, Trainer Kits with two preconstructed half decks are released. The Black & White Series brings the Black & White Trainer Kit. This kit was originally due for release August 3rd, 2011, but was held back for unknown reasons. The Black & White Trainer Kit features Zoroark and Excadrill as holographic cards with artwork exclusive to the Trainer Kit. It also contains two booklets to guide players through the game, a coin, an exclusive deck box, a Black & White Series booster pack, and a code card to unlock the cards in the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online.

As with almost every expansion, the Emerging Powers expansion features two theme decks, which are named Toxic Tricks and Power Play.

Next Destinies Theme Decks

The Next Destinies expansion brought with it two Theme Decks: Explosive Edge and Voltage Vortex. They featured the two main legendary Pokémon of Unova, Reshiram and Zekrom, respectively. Unlike the first three expansions of the Black & White Series, these Theme Decks were released the day of the set, instead of weeks prior. In addition, their featured cards, Reshiram and Zekrom, used the Pinstripe Holofoil, instead of the Cracked Ice Holofoil typically used in Theme Decks. Each included a Pokémon Trading Card Game Online code that allows the deck to be unlocked online.

Next Destinies Blisters

Released together with the Next Destinies expansion, various Blister Packs hit store shelves on February 8th, 2012. In an unprecedented move by The Pokémon Company International, the Blister Packs for North America began to include different assortments of products compared to the international blisters. The familiar Three Pack Blisters, released internationally, came in two varieties: one with an exclusive holofoil Riolu promotional card, and one with an exclusive holofoil Luxio promotional card. These Blisters included three Next Destinies booster packs, and a coin featuring Munna.

The North American Blister Packs, on the other hand, came in four varieties: two different Two Pack Blisters containing either one of two Stage 2 evolutionary families, and two Single Pack Blisters containing either one of two Stage 1 evolutionary families. The Stage 2 Blisters contained either the Klinklang family or the Gigalith family, all Cracked Ice Holofoil. The Stage 1 Blisters contained either the Zoroark family or the Beartic family, with the final stage as a Cracked Ice Holofoil, and also contained a Next Destinies 3-card sampling pack and a code card to unlock either family in the online game.

EX Tins

Shortly after the release of the Next Destinies expansion, on March 21st, 2012, the EX Tins were released. These tins featured three of the newest Pokémon-EX: Reshiram-EX, Kyurem-EX, and Zekrom-EX. Included in the tins were one Emerging Powers booster pack, one Noble Victories booster pack, two Next Destinies booster packs, and an online code card to unlock the promotional card online. For the first time in several Series of the Pokémon Trading Card Game, the tin promos neither were exclusive cards, nor given alternate artwork. They were exactly the same as their in set prints, with the exception of their set number.

Dark Explorers Theme Decks

Much like many other expansions, Dark Explorers brought with it two more Theme Decks: Raiders and Shadows, on May 9th, 2012. Raiders features the Coffin Pokémon, Cofagrigus, while Shadows features the Illusion Fox Pokémon, Zoroark. Their featured cards, Cofagrigus and Zoroark, return to the Cracked Ice Holofoil, after the Next Destinies Theme Decks featured the Tinsel Holofoil. Each Theme Deck included a Pokémon Trading Card Game Online code that allows the deck to be unlocked online.

Dark Explorers Blisters

Accompanying the Dark Explorers expansion on May 9th, 2012, various Blister Packs were released in stores to promote the expansion. Continuing the pattern set by Next Destinies, the Blister Packs for North America include different assortments of products compared to the international Blisters. The international Three Pack Blisters came in two varieties: one with a Cracked Ice Holofoil Luxray promotional card, and one with a Cracked Ice Holofoil Krookodile promotional card. These Blisters included three Dark Explorers booster packs, and a coin featuring Zekrom and Reshiram first released in the Next Destinies Theme Decks.

The North American Blister Packs came in four varieties: two different Two Pack Blisters containing either one of two Stage 2 evolutionary families, and two single pack Blisters containing either one of two Stage 1 evolutionary families. The Stage 2 Blisters contained either the Luxray family or the Krookodile family, all Cracked Ice Holofoil. The Stage 1 Blisters contained either the Persian family or the Lucario family, with the final stage as a Cosmos Holofoil, and also contained a Dark Explorers 3-card sampling pack. These Blisters contain the promotional cards—Luxio and Riolu—that previously weren't released in North America in the international Next Destinies Blisters; however, the two promos are not given the Cosmos Holofoil treatment, making both releases contain exclusive cards.

The Stage 2 Blisters were eventually discontinued in favor for the old, international style of Three Pack Blisters. Dark Explorers is the last set to have them.

Kyurem Box

To finish off the Tao trio's collection of promotional boxes, the Kyurem Box was made available starting June 2012. Similar to the Template:Merch and Template:Merch released in October 2011, the Kyurem Box included four booster packs, a Kyurem figure, a new promotional reprint of the Kyurem card from Noble Victories, and a code card for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online that unlocks the exclusive promotional card. Unlike the Reshiram and Zekrom Boxes, however, the booster packs included in this box were one Black & White booster pack, two Emerging Powers booster packs, and one Next Destinies booster pack.

Evolved Starter Boxes

Released July 2012 were the Evolved Starter Boxes. Featuring the Unova Region Starter Pokémon's final evolutions, these boxes are appropriately named the Superb Serperior Box, the Excellent Emboar Box, and the Spectacular Samurott Box. Each box contains a Cracked Ice Holofoil reprint of either Servine, Pignite, or Dewott, and one of the three Template:Merch. Each box also includes one of the three evolved starter figures previously released in the Template:Merch, as well as two booster packs: one from the Call of Legends expansion and another from the Emerging Powers expansion.

Dragons Exalted Theme Decks

The Dragons Exalted expansion features two theme decks, which are named DragonSnarl and DragonSpeed, that were released August 15th, 2012. These two theme decks feature the Dragon-type, and contain the Brutal Pokémon Hydreigon and the Mach Pokémon Garchomp, respectively, as exclusive Cracked Ice Holofoils. Each Theme Deck includes a Pokémon Trading Card Game Online code that allows the deck to be unlocked online.

Early product images featured the incorrect card in the image. As there are two different Hydreigon and Garchomp featured in the Dragons Exalted expansion, the early images featured the alternate Hydreigon and Garchomp cards, instead of the ones actually present in the deck.

Dragons Exalted Blisters

Released with the Dragons Exalted expansion on August 15th, 2012, four different Blister Packs appeared in stores, because the Stage 2 Blisters were discontinued in between the release of Dark Explorers and Dragons Exalted. The Three Pack Blisters came in two varieties: one with a Cracked Ice Holofoil Chandelure promotional card and one with a Cracked Ice Holofoil Scolipede card. These Blisters included 3 Dragons Exalted booster packs, and a coin featuring Reshiram and Zekrom, originally included in the Next Destinies Theme Decks. Also released were the Stage 1 Blisters, each containing either the Excadrill family or the Lilligant family, with the final stage as an exclusive Holofoil, as well as one booster pack, and one preview pack of three Commons.

Legendary EX Tins

Shortly after the release of the Dragons Exalted expansion, the Legendary EX Tins were released on September 12th, 2012. In some international countries, the tins were released as early as August 15th, the release date of Dragons Exalted. These tins featured three of the most powerful Pokémon-EX at the time: Mewtwo-EX, Darkrai-EX, and Rayquaza-EX. Included in the tins were four Black & White Series booster packs—2 from Dragons Exalted, 1 from Emerging Powers, and 1 from Black & White—and an online code card to unlock the promotional card online.

Emerging Challenges Box

Released September 18th, 2012, was the Emerging Challenges Box, a box that seemingly repackaged older material in order to make room for newer merchandise. Much like the Template:Merch, the Emerging Challenges Box contained 1 Theme Deck and 2 booster packs, as well as exclusive promotional cards. Differing from the previous boxes, however, the Emerging Challenges Box contained 3 Holofoil cards instead of 1 Holofoil card and a figure. One of the four Theme Decks from the Emerging Powers and Noble Victories expansions—Power Play, Toxic Tricks, Fast Daze, or Furious Knights—was available in the box, as well as 1 booster pack from Black & White, and another from either Emerging Powers or Noble Victories. The promotional cards included were a Mirror Reverse Holofoil Stoutland evolutionary line. The Herdier and Stoutland were from the Black & White expansion, while the Lillipup was one of the BW Black Star Promos: BW52.

The Lillipup promotional card originates from the Cobalion Strength Deck, a deck released in Japan 19 months earlier. The other Pokémon cards from the deck were included in the English Emerging Powers expansion 13 months earlier. It is unknown why the card was withheld for such a long time before finally being released September 2012. Ironically, the card features a 2011 copyright instead of a 2012 copyright.

The Keldeo Box included these three promotional items, as well as three booster packs from the Black & White Series expansions of the Pokémon Trading Card Game—specifically, 2 from Dragons Exalted and 1 from Noble Victories. It did not include an online code card for the online game.
