No tricks, all treats
We’re still a few months away from October, but that hasn’t stopped Pokémon Co. from detailing some special plans for Halloween season! Today, The Pokémon Company International announced an upcoming Halloween campaign inviting Trainers to incorporate Pokémon in their spooky celebrations with themed activations and merchandise across the franchise. To kick off the program, The Pokémon Company International revealed the new Pokémon Trading Card Game: Trick or Trade BOOster Bundle, providing parents and kids with a fun and innovative alternative to candy for trick-or-treating when it launches on Sept. 1, 2022, at participating grocery stores and mass retailers.
Each Pokémon TCG: Trick or Trade BOOster Bundle includes 40 themed mini booster packs, each containing three cards that highlight a spooky Pokémon — such as Zubat, Gengar, Pumpkaboo, Mimikyu and Polteageist — and feature a Pikachu jack-o’-lantern stamp on every card. Families can enjoy passing out Trick or Trade BOOsters to neighbors and friends, while young Trainers trade cards in search of their favorite ghoulish Pokémon after a night of trick-or-treating.
Outside of the Pokémon TCG, The Pokémon Company International will debut more Halloween celebrations across the franchise, including a new interactive website launching in early September that will serve as the hub for seasonal entertainment and merchandise across the Pokémon brand as they are revealed in the coming months. This website will also include enchanting activities for families to incorporate Pokémon in their Halloween festivities.
Furthermore, Trainers can stay tuned to a new Halloween product collection, spanning home décor, plush, collectibles and more from Pokémon Center — the premier online destination for official, high-quality Pokémon merchandise in the US, Canada, and UK — in the coming months.
