While the set has already made its debut in Japan, the English version is poised to make a grand entrance on September 22, 2023. This release is not just about the visually stunning cards, which include EXs and Full Art cards.
151 in the set’s name does not refer to the number of Pokémon cards in the set, it pays homage to those “original 151 Pokémon” that captured our imaginations in the beloved Red & Blue games of the ’90s. Surprisingly, the total card count for this set stands at 210. This is due to the inclusion of various rarities, including Secret Rare, Illustration Rare, Special Illustration Rare, and Ultra Rare cards, each with its unique allure. The Japanese release has given us a sneak peek at the full art and rare illustration cards. However, the highly sought-after Mew ex special illustration rare card, which transitions from day to night when tilted, can only be obtained in the Ultra-Premium box.
Although 151 will not be sold as individual boosters, or as 36 booster boxes, keep an eye out for the variety of boxes and sets that The POP Shop will distribute for this exciting Pokémon card set.
