- Two "Pokemon Evolution Packs" have come out recently, with a third coming out in December. The first features a complete Metagross SV line and an Arceus or Rising Rivals pack; the second has a complete Charizard AR line and a Supreme Victors pack. Each Stage 2 card has an attractive "stained-glass" foil pattern. Each Evolution Pack goes for roughly $5. The Charizard is quite a viable card, so expect him to sell like, well, hotcakes.
- A "HeartGold and SoulSilver Series Collection Box" is now available in Target and Wal-Mart for about $20. This box is packed with good stuff: 5 booster packs (2 Triumphant and 1 each of Undaunted, Unleashed, and HeartGold/SoulSilver), 3 cards with the same foil treatment as the Evolution Packs' Stage 2's (Feraligatr, Meganium, and Typhlosion from HGSS), and a nicely detailed Entei figure. Not to be missed!
Two more interesting items will be released in the near-future:
- Two "Clash of Legends" boxes will be released later this month, one featuring Dialga and Palkia and the other Darkrai and Cresselia. Each box has 4 booster packs, 2 Pokemon Lvl.X (wow!), and a jumbo Legend card. The Dialga/Palkia box is sure to be a hot seller, since it includes Dialga G Lvl. X and Palkia G Lvl. X, both highly playable cards. The boxes will go for $15 each.
- The HS: Triumphant 3-pack will feature not one, but two promos per pack: Porygon and Porygon2. Otherwise, they have the same features as previous 3-packs.
Perfect additions to any Pokemon trainer's holiday shopping list!
