Creatures, Inc. to increase TCG production in Japan; introduce lottery system for Japanese pre-orders

The official Japanese Pokémon Card Game website have announced that Creatures, Inc. will be strengthening its production system due to increased demands for Pokémon cards, working harder to meet the desired expectations for customers, and pushing to promote the reproduction and shipment of missing products.

Most Pokémon TCG products are currently out of stock in Japan, due to rapidly spiking worldwide demand for the card game. Regarding products scheduled to be released on May 28, 2021, pre-orders from the Pokemon Center Online began at 10:00 am on May 7, but due to the sheer amount of customers, the website crashed and many could not make a reservation. It has now been announced that these products will not be sold in physical stores. Instead, the only way to purchase the products will be a lottery system to be set up on the Pokémon Center Online.

The products are:
強化拡張パック イーブイヒーローズ
(Strength Expansion Pack: Eievui Heroes)
強化拡張パック イーブイヒーローズ イーブイズセット
(Strength Expansion Pack: Eievui Heroes Eievui's Set)
Eevee Heroes Eevee Set.jpg
VMAXスペシャルセット イーブイヒーローズ
(Eievui Heroes VMAX Special Set)

ハイクラスデッキダブルBOX ゲンガーVMAX&インテレオンVMAX
(Gangar VMAX & Intereon VMAX High-Class Deck Double Box)

Application for the lottery sales will begin on Friday, May 14, 2021 10:00 to Tuesday, May 18, 23:59 JST. Those chosen will be notified by email on Wednesday, May 26, 2021. The products will be shipped sequentially from mid-June to mid-July 2021.

Customers who already pre-ordered on May 7, 2021 will not be eligible for the lottery. For more terms and conditions, please check this website.

Some of these products have a possibility to be sold in physical stores in the near future. It still remains to be seen if the lottery system will be in place for upcoming expansions and products.
