A peek behind the curtain
IGN’s resident Pokémaniac Joshua Yehl takes you on a tour of Creatures, the Pokémon TCG headquarters. He sees the beautiful reception area and talks to the Illustration Team, playtesters, and lead game, plus he tries his hand at modeling a Magnemite from clay, and the result is… well, you’ll just have to see it for yourself.
If you’ve ever wondered how the Pokémon TCG is made, then take a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on at Creatures, Inc. It’s the place where they design and create new Pokémon trading cards, from classics such as Pikachu and Charizard, to new fan favorites that everyone loves unconditionally like Quaxly, Quaxwell, and Quaquaval.
Joshua is a competitive Pokémon TCG player, so going on this tour was a dream come true. He’s overly obsessed with the best meta cards and only cares about tournament-winning decks, but could this trip to Creatures warm his heart and make him see the true beauty of Pokémon? Probably not!
