The Pokémon trading card game is celebrating its 25th anniversary, as are the red and green games. To celebrate this anniversary, a crossover collaboration between Pokémon GO and Pokémon TCG is coming up.
The collaboration plans are pretty simple at the moment, albeit heartwarming, as Pokémon GO is being officially recognized 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, marking the fifth anniversary of the launch of Pokémon GO.
- The Professor Willow Card can be obtained in regions around the world where the Pokémon TCG is sold.
- Beginning in late May 2021, Niantic plans to announce the art and content of Professor Willow’s card and details on how to obtain the card in each area.
More 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 about the collaboration.
