Classic Base Set Pokemon Cards to be reprinted this fall

The original Base Set of Pokemon cards will be reprinted in America this November! They'll come with some new cards, too.

Remember those memories of endlessly buying and ripping open Pokemon booster packs in hopes of finally obtaining the holographic Charizard? This fall, you'll get to relive that experience. The original Base Set will be reprinted this November so as to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Pokemon cards.

Labelled under the XY-Evolutions brand, this set will include over a hundred cards (including the originals). It will also introduce new Mega Evolution cards (including Mega Venasaur-EX, Mega Charizard-EX and Mega Blastoise-EX), EX cards (Dragonite-EX) and BREAK cards (Ninetales BREAK and Machamp BREAK). Those looking to reacquaint themselves with the game may want to study up on the new card types and rules.

The new set will release in Japan first in September, alongside a redesign of the original booster pack artwork. These new booster packs will include 10 cards per pack, and booster boxes will include 15 packs. Whether or not this will be replicated in America is yet to be confirmed.

We'll keep an eye on more information regarding this reprint as it becomes available.
