Pokémon Trading Card game is celebrating its 25th anniversary, just as the Red and Green games are. In order to celebrate this anniversary, a cross collaboration between Pokémon GO and the Pokémon TCG is coming.
The collaboration plans are quite simple at the moment, albeit heartwarming, as Pokémon GO is being officially recognised as part of the franchise’s cannon:
- In part 1 of the collaboration, Professor Willow will appear as a Pokémon TCG card in summer 2021, which marks the five-year anniversary of the release of Pokémon GO
- The Professor Willow card to be obtainable in regions around the world where the Pokémon TCG is sold.
- Starting in late May 2021, Niantic plans to announce the art and content of the Professor Willow card and details on how to get the card in each area.
Further collaborations will be announced as they are determined, but currently this is what we know. At the moment, there is only a limited amount of information surrounding the collaboration.
