Has the Pokémon Collector Chest gone for good?

The first Pokémon Collector Chest, also known as the Treasure tin, was released in November 2014. The metal lunchbox style tin featured Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre on the front. Further chests followed in the Autumn of 2015 and 2016. From 2017 onwards two Collector Chest products have been released each year, one in the Spring and one in the Autumn.

2014 Pokémon Collector Chest

Earlier this month (Jan 2022) Pokémon announced the March 2022 release of a new product – the Pokémon Collector Bundle Spring 2022.  At the time of writing there has been no announcement of a Spring 2022 Pokémon Collector Chest. Furthermore as the contents of this new product are virtually identical to the products generally found in a Pokémon Collector Chest there is speculation that the Collector Bundle is set to replace the Collector Chest.

Of course, it could be that the Collector Bundle is a one-off product due to a lack of raw materials or other supply problems. But it could equally be that the Pokémon Collector Chest is gone for good. 

If the Pokémon Collector Chest is a thing of the past, then all those produced will become highly collectible and will increase in value. Detailed below is a complete history of all Collector Chests released. They are listed in reverse order from newest to oldest.
