This year, the Pokémon TCG is letting players immerse themselves in the spooky spirit of the season by releasing its new Trick or Trade set, featuring some of the best Halloween creatures from the franchise. Players around the world have already set their sights on completing this limited-time set, but how difficult will it be to catch them all? Here’s everything we know about the Pokémon Trick or Trade cards and how to get them.
Pokémon Trick or Trade Cards Guide
For players who like themed decks, this is a great way to create one for the Pokémon TCG. The Trick or Trade cards feature some of the most iconic spooky characters from the Pokémon franchise, although they also introduced the series’ mascot, Pikachu, because what event would be complete without everyone’s favourite?
Pokémon Trick or Trade cards release date
The official release date for these packs is September 1st, but some US outlets have started stocking shelves in mid-August, giving collectors an early chance to get their hands on these special edition cards. There are 30 in the set, each a reprint of an existing card with a Pikachu Pumpkin stamp in the corner of the card to distinguish them. In addition to these 30 cards, there are ten with holographic versions, making them rarer and more valuable. There are 40 cards to collect if you want to complete the full set.

How To Get All Trick-or-Trade Pokemon Cards
The good news is that these cards are all included in the Trick or Trade BOOster packs sold at retailers around the world. You can purchase a bag of these packs for $14.99 which contains 40 mini booster packs. Each pack contains three cards, giving you 120 Trick or Trade cards with each bag. You should be able to complete the set including the rarer holocards with a single bag, but it takes a bit of luck.
It’s not yet clear how this set will be received by collectors. The Pikachu Pumpkin Stamp sets it apart from other cards in the Pokémon TCG, but they seem pretty easy to get at the moment. Time is of the essence among collectors, with some individual cards becoming much more valuable years after their release. These probably won’t become the most valuable Pokémon cards out there, but they’re a fun set to give away for Halloween to get more young people interested in the game.
