Here's What Comes Inside The New Pokémon TCG: Pikachu V Box

If you didn't think Pikachu had featured on enough Pokémon-V cards, this new Pokémon TCG box is perfect for you. The franchise mascot is the star of this Pikachu V box that was released last week. I picked one up to crack open and show you the cards, reveal which booster packs are inside, and determine if this one was worth buying.

The new Pokémon TCG Pikachu V box includes:

  • Pikachu V – SWSH Black Star Promo
  • Mimikyu – This is a holographic reprint of the card from Sword & Shield – Darkness Ablaze. It uses the same artwork but includes the classic galaxy style of holographic foil used for promo cards.
  • An oversized version of the Pikachu V promo
  • Two packs of Sword & Shield – Brilliant Stars, the latest set
  • Two packs of Sword & Shield – Fusion Strike, the November 2021 set

Personally, I find this to be a solid box. I joke about Pikachu being featured as a promo a lot but, to be real, I never really tire of the iconic Pokémon. The Mimikyu holo is a good bonus, too, as it adds that classic foil style that has been in the Pokémon TCG since the late 90s to a modern card. I love how promos keep the galaxy foil alive, and I personally feel it should make a comeback in main series sets as well.

One thing to note, though, was that this Mimikyu was previously available as a holo in another promotion, though I was not able to find information of where it could be found. I had one, though!

Neither a stunning box nor one you should miss, this is a nice in-between-the-sets release that collectors should pick up.
