To commemorate the start of the festive season, The Pokemon Company is launching a free pop-up experience. Intended to encourage children and families to share the joy of Pokémon Together, the Pokemon pop-up will offer attendees a free package Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) cards.

The Poké Post pop-up experience gives attendees the choice of either a Pikachu or Eevee Trading Card Game gift pack. This is intended for you to post to someone special this holiday season. But you’ll want to keep one for yourself, of course! Thus, each attendee will actually be allowed two gift packs. One to keep, and one to send to a friend!

Each gift pack contains a corresponding Pokémon Together promo card. These will feature either Pikachu or Eevee, and a Scarlet & Violet Trading Card Game Fun Pack.

This one-day pop-up experience will tour across select cities in the UK, France and Germany for six weeks between 18th November and 19th December, 2023, and encourages new Trainers to share the joy of Pokémon with family and friends to help bring them together during the festive season.

Peter Murphy, Senior Director of Marketing at The Pokémon Company International comments: “If there is someone in your life that would love to receive a Pokémon-themed surprise through the post this winter, then this is the place to sign them up! We can’t wait to welcome the new generation of Pokémon Trainers who are starting their journey with someone special this holiday.”
