Revealed during the Pokémon live stream held on Feb. 27, the set is optimized to streamline matches between those who play the the card game competitively. It comes complete with storage containers for cards, a premium play board, and a sleek case to hold everything included in the set. Everything features a monochrome color palette too, giving the product a sensible yet eye-catching design.

The set is a joint project between Nendo, Creatures, and The Pokémon Company, with all three entities working in tandem to bring Pokemon TCG Classic to life.
