The Pokémon Company International has announced details of a new reality TV series focusing on the Pokémon TCG. Along with the announcement of this unscripted television series based on the iconic trading card game, it was also announced that the cast of the series will focus on fans located in the Los Angeles, California area. Let’s get into the details.
Barry Sams, Vice President of Pokémon Trading Card Game at The Pokémon Company International, said:
“The Pokemon trading card game has been a cornerstone of the Pokémon brand since its launch over 25 years ago and central to its success are its fans. Dedicated competitors from the Play! Pokémon program and casual gamers who battle after school with friends and family, collectors, or general enthusiasts, we look forward to shining a light on the stories of our diverse TCG fans. Anyone in the Los Angeles area with a Pokémon TCG story to tell is encouraged to apply.”

In addition to this news, two new products have been announced for release in late 2022. These include:
- A still untitled Ultra-Premium collection: Retailing for around $120, this collection will include three “special etched foil art cards” as V, VMAX, and VSTAR. It will also include sixteen boosters, a coin, sleeves and more. The last time we saw an Ultra-Premium collection was the coveted Celebrations UPC which ended up opting for exorbitant prices on the secondary market. Before that, the only other times we saw Ultra Premium collections were for SWSH Ultra-Premium Zacian and Zamazenta Gold Collection plus Shiny Rayquaza-themed UPC for the special set Hidden Fates.
- A still untitled Pokémon V box: Priced at $19.99, it will be a normal V box with one card, its jumbo version, and four packs. We should get some info soon on what can be included.
