Pokemon TCG: Scarlet and Violet 151: where to pre-order

The upcoming new Pokémon trading card game series Scarlet and Violet – 151 set to catch up 22 Septembercontaining at least one card of each of the beloved original Pokémon from the Kanto region.

The series also features the first new Kadabra card in over 20 years, now that magician Uri Geller has backed out of his ongoing dispute with The Pokémon Company.

This set is already out in Japan, then we already know what to expect with full art and rare illustrated cards. However, unlike the Japanese release, the only way to get the coveted Mew ex special illustration rare card (the one that turns from day to night when you tilt it) is to order the Ultra-Premium box. People will be reselling this card without all the other stuff that comes in the box, but it’s hard to predict what the price of the card will be.

If you want to get some of these cards, we are here to help. Even in the pre-order phase, the sets have sold out of tons of major retailers, like TCG Player or even the Pokémon Center website. However, they will likely restock, allowing more pre-orders to come in, before the set goes live. Below, you can see how to pre-order various boxes and sets at GameStop and Best Buy.

This box includes the following, a la official listings:

  • 1 foil promo card etched with Mew ex
  • 1 full art foil promo card with Mewtwo
  • 1 etched metal card featuring Mew ex
  • 1 play mat

  • One metallic coin with Mew

If you don’t want the special rare Mew ex-card illustration or any of the other goodies (dice, playmat, etc), this might not be the deal for you – but the ones below might suit your needs better.

This is just a small box of six booster packs. This is great if you were planning on buying a bunch of packs anyway, as it’s a bit cheaper than buying six packs straight up (depending on where you buy your individual packs).
