Last month, GoNintendo highlighted the upcoming Halloween cards coming to the Pokémon TCG. Now, it seems we know which cards will be included in this Trick or Trade BOOster Bundle, thanks to PokéBeach.


Although Halloween is still a bit of time away, some retailers, including Kohl’s and Kroger, now have the special seasonal Pokémon cards for purchase. While the complete set is 30 reprint cards, these cards are special in that they have special Pikachu pumpkin stamp, as seen above, in the bottom-right corner of the artwork.


Ten of the cards, seen above, are also holo. These Pokémon are as follows: Gengar, Mewtwo, Mismagius, Dusknoir, Darkrai, Chandelure, Trevenant, Gorgeist, Mimikyu, and Hatterene.

PokéBeach advises that players can complete the set with half a bag to a full bag, based on the data given:

Darkrai appears to be the hardest card to pull, with one or two in every bag. Chandelure appears to be the next rarest, with about two in every bag. The most common holos appear to be Dusknoir, Mismagius, and Gorgeist. This is from a sample size of five bags (200 packs), so it may not represent everyone’s pull rates.

The Pokémon TCG: Trick or Trade BOOster Bundle costs $14.99 each, and includes 40 mini booster packs, where 3 cards come per pack, and each booster pack comes with a holo card. The booster packs should be available in grocery stores, retailers, and the Pokémon Center by September 5th. For more information on these packs, you can check out GoNintendo’s coverage.

All of these cards relating to darkness, spoopiness, and ghosts...

And then there's Pikachu.
