Celebrations Release Date
Pokémon have now announced more details about the special 25th Anniversary expansion set. This highly anticipated set will launch on 8th October 2021. It will be called Celebrations and will comprise 45 cards plus Secret Rares.
This set will contain 2 VMAX and 4 V characters. Taking centre stage will be Legendary, Mythical and other fan-favourite Pokémon. Ho-Oh, Mew, Flying Pikachu, Surfing Pikachu and Zamazenta will feature as well as Professor Oak.
In addition to the main set there will be an additional set of 25 cards. This additional set will feature ‘close remakes’ of all-time favourites including Base Set Charizard and Base Set Pikachu. Also confirmed to appear in this set are Umbreon and Tapu Lele GX. See Celebrations Card List for more details.
Booster packs will not be sold separately but will be included with most products. However, the packs will be smaller and will only contain 4 cards. These cards will all be holo and will include the 25th Anniversary logo. It is likely that the reduced pack size has been done to maintain the average booster pack price since all cards will be holo cards.
