Arceus Mythical Pokémon Collection
$11.99 – $12.99 at Most Major Retailers
August’s Mythical Pokémon of the month is Arceus, the Alpha Pokémon from the Sinnoh Region. As with every month, Arceus has its own Mythical Pokémon Collection release for the Pokémon Trading Card Game. The Arceus collection includes a Arceus Pokémon Official Pin, an XY116 Arceus promo card, and two booster packs of the box exclusive Generations expansion. Each collection retails for $12.99 at most major retailers.
The promo has an interesting first attack that I really wish was an ability. Being able to do something (discard a card or something) to change Arceus’s type to whatever you wanted would be a fantastic ability. It would surely be overpowered with the card’s second attacking being able to OHKO anything in the game after a type change, it would have to have been nerfed if the first attack was an ability. Regardless, it’s a neat gimmick for sure. The pin is beautiful as always, with the gold really highlighting Arceus’s unique design. I’m not keen on the prancing pose, but the quality is as top notch as it ever is. I can’t want to have all of my decks online have the sleeves of god on them though. Truth.
