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

The upcoming new Pokémon trading card game set Scarlet and Purple—151 is set to arrive on Sep 22featuring at least one card of each of the beloved original Pokémon from the Kanto region.

This set also features the first new Kadabra card in over 20 years, now that the magician Uri Geller has backed down from his ongoing dispute with The Pokémon Company.

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

If you want to grab some of these cards, we’re here to help. Even in the pre-order stage, the sets have sold out of a ton of major retailers, like TCG Player or even the Pokémon Center website. However, they will likely restock, allowing more preorders in, before the set goes live. Below, you can see how to pre-order various boxes and sets.

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 slightly cheaper than buying six packs straight-up (depending on where you buy your single packs from).

Each of these tins have two booster packs and a special coin with an energy symbol on it inside. When ordering from GameStop, the tin you get is random, so buyer beware.
