Revision as of 10:42, 27 April 2013

This page no longer includes the merchandise for the HeartGold & SoulSilver Series, the Call of Legends Series, or the Black & White Series. It is progressively being phased out in favor of merchandise pages organized by Series rather than type. For merchandise from these three Series, please refer to this page accordingly.


As well as producing unique or variant cards available at events, Nintendo has also released several varieties of promotional items in which to deliver special cards. Such mediums include value packs, box sets and collector tins. The list below focuses on value packs and box sets, which contain at least one promotional card, as well as booster packs or a theme deck from recent expansions. The items are listed in (roughly) chronological order and contain details of their contents.

Contents

EX Series value packs

EX Value Pack (1)

The first value pack to be produced by Nintendo, it differs from packs today as it was boxed and did not show the promotional card included in the pack.

Promo card:

Contents:

EX Value Pack (2)

This value pack was also boxed and was the first to include two promotional cards. This pack contained the same two cards that were included in the EX Collector's Carry Tin.

Promo cards:

Contents:


In 2005, value packs began to be packaged in blister packs (where the items are sealed with vacuum moulded plastic) and released alongside TCG expansions upon their release, the packaging mirroring the same design as the booster packs or boxes. The majority of blister packs released still retain this pattern. It was also around this time that the inclusion of promo cards were phased out in favor of releasing them in tins, using the blister packs as a medium in which to deliver holographic reprints of POP Series cards. These packs also saw the inclusion of coins, normally found in theme decks.

EX Unseen Forces Blister Pack

The first blister packs released were based on the EX Unseen Forces expansion, though they were not directly affiliated by The Pokémon Company.

Promo cards:

Contents:

EX Legend Maker Blister Pack

These value packs were released in conjunction with EX Legend Maker, the card back featuring a similar design to those of the booster packs.

EX Holon Phantoms Blister Pack

These value packs were released in conjunction with EX Holon Phantoms, the card back featuring a similar design to those of the booster packs.

This was one of the first packs to focus on one particular Pokémon both in terms of the design of the pack and the card included. This would later be used in subsequent releases, but with a general theme in mind, such as the Eeveelutions and legendary beasts.
