Pokemon GO and Pokemon Trading Card Game

On the official Pokemon GO site we can read that very soon in a popular card game there will be an interesting reference to the mobile game.

2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green. And, just like the video games, the Pokémon Trading Card Game is also celebrating its 25th anniversary. To celebrate, we are doing a collaboration between Pokémon GO and the Pokémon Trading Card Game!

What is the Pokemon Trading Card Game? It is a collectible card game based on the Pokemon series, first released in Japan in 1996.

In part 1 of the collaboration, Professor Willow will appear as a Pokémon TCG card in summer 2021, which marks the five-year anniversary of the release of Pokémon GO! We plan for this card to be obtainable in regions around the world where the Pokémon TCG is sold.

Starting in late May 2021, we plan to announce the art and content of the Professor Willow card and details on how to get the card in each area. We will make announcements as further collaborations are determined, so we hope you will look forward to those!
