As if headlining a virtual Post Malone to perform a cover of a Hootie & the Blowfish song in a special Pokémon-themed concert wasn’t enough to celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary, a new set of commemorative Pokémon stamps based on the trading card game are set to be released by The Japan Post Office.
The stamp collection showcases art from the original Pokémon cards of Venusaur, Charizard and Balstoise, which can be purchased for $0.84 USD. There are also two special stamps sold at $1.20 USD each which feature Pikachu in the classic Japanese artwork, “Beauty Looking Back” and Cramorants in “Geese Flying Across Full Moon”.
Plus, five additional stamps from Pokémon TCG‘s Sword & Shield series will be available for $0.84 USD, along with a set of ten $0.63 cent stamps based on the trading card game, for a grand total of $5.80 USD.
Moreover, there’s another set of ten $0.84 USD stamps depicting Pokémon versions of all four seasons that will be available at $7.75 USD.
On top of all that, The Japan Post Office is also launching an exclusive Family Pokémon Card Game that boasts two promotional cards featuring the previously mentioned artwork from the “Beauty” and “Geese” stamps, as well as three PokéBalls that come with transforming cards inside. You’ll have to part with $37 USD if you want to buy the set, while will be available from August 25th onward. Everything else mentioned releases on July 7th.
