This post will cover a couple smaller releases that’s happened over the past few weeks!
A set of new can badges from the Pokemon With You charity line came out March 10th.

Two original illustrated clear cards will be distributed at Pokemon Centers and Stores starting April 12th (Saturday). In order to get a clear card, all you need to do is show up to a Pokemon Center or Store, no purchase necessary. The cards are limited one per person.
The first design (with Pikipek) will be distributed between April 12th and June 1st (Friday) or while supplies last.
The second design (with Togechick) will be distributed between June 2nd (Saturday) and June 30th (Saturday) or while supplies last.
Between April 25th (Wednesday) until June 30th (Saturday) or while supplies last, customers who spend 4,000 yen or more at any Pokemon Center or Store will receive 1 original clear card holder. This holder is designed specifically to hold the clear cards the Pokemon Center gives away for campaigns. It’s a neat way to keep everything organized while also celebrating the Pokemon Center’s 20th anniversary.
Lastly, an original Pokemon TCG card will be distributed at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting April 25th, while supplies last. 1 card is given away for every 5 booster packs purchased.
