Live stream for Japan's Pokémon TCG Champions League reveals ex starter set featuring Pikachu and Pawmot, plus plushie Pikachu deck case

Not open for further replies.
  • Staff
As part of today's live stream for the Japanese Pokémon Trading Card Game Champion's League, a new ex Starter Set based on Pikachu and Pawmot was announced for the first time. What arguably stole the show however wasn't reveals of new cards from this set, but the appearance of a unique new Pikachu plush deck case. The starter set and deck box will be released together in Japan on March 24th, and can be purchased either separately, for 1,800円 and 1595円 respectively, or together in a special bundle for 3,580円.

As with the three ex Starter Sets based on the Paldean starter Pokémon, this new starter set contains the titular new Pokémon ex card, along with a fixed selection of other cards. While the exact list of cards available in the new starter is not yet known, from the revealed cards we can see these will include reprints of several basic Trainer cards alongside the featured Pokémon for the deck. Every set also comes packaged with a sheet containing 44 damage counters and 2 status markers, a play guide, a coin, and a playmat. In addition, the Pikachu ex starter set contains a promo card pack, with one randomly selected promotional card. A closer look at all the announced elements can be found in an additional video released on the Pokémon Trading Card Game's official Japanese YouTube channel after the Champion's League live stream.

In addition to these announcements today, an new Sableye card was revealed in a separate live stream on the Pokémon Trading Card Game's official Japanese YouTube channel two days ago.

All the cards from these reveals, including reprints from the starter set and promo pack that were shown off on stream, can be found in the table below. For other cards revealed over the past week, please see our other recent TCG articles, as well as the Triplet Beat page on Bulbapedia
