Pokemon Center Report – Awakening Psychic King + Card Sleeves

The newest Pokemon XY Break expansion set, Awakening Psychic King, was released today in Japan, along with a couple auxiliary TCG goods, including two new battle decks and 4 Pokemon Center exclusive card sleeves.


I guess the Center knew that the sleeves would be popular because even with a weekday release, they decided to put the sleeves behind the counter instead of on display in the store. This means no nice display picture, but I’d give up the in-store display for drama-free sleeve buying. The past couple of Friday sleeve releases resulted in me showing up to the Center very early and there being no line, but that was not the case today; the line pre-opening was longer than the line on Wednesday for the Kyoto Center promotion!

Everyone loves Eevee(lutions).


Along with a non-exclusive Zygarde Perfect Forme design (not pictured) there was the very popular Eeveelution design


Occult Maniac with Banette buddy


Ho-oh and Smeargle


and Octillary, whose name sounds nothing like Octillary in Japanese (random observation).


These deck boxes, featuring the main Awakening Psychic King artwork, also went on sale today


Along with two Perfect Battle Decks: Zygarde EX


and Audino EX.


The Audino and Mega Audino EX cards are especially adorable, and although I went in to the store today not planning on buying one of these sets, after seeing the card list (each battle deck comes with different sets of 60 cards) I’m tempted to pick one up…


I did end up buying 5 packs of booster cards in the hopes that I would pull one of the new Minccino cards.


Out of 5 packs, I pulled 2 Cinccinos. So close yet so far! Also another reason to buy the Audino Battle Deck because it comes with 2 Minccino~ (my babu)


The second half of this clearfile campaign also started today. Customers can pick 1 clearfile from these 3 designs for every purchase at the Pokemon Center, while supplies last.

Not ready for the week of releases to be over? Stay tuned for tomorrow when a new batch of kuttari plush, the very first monthly pair pikachu, and this year’s Pokemon Easter promotion are released!
