Pokémon Sun and Moon playing cards

Nowadays, Nintendo is almost exclusively known for their consoles and games, but the company is still making more traditional games such as playing card games sets, Hanafuda sets, Go sets, and more. In fact, Nintendo frequently releases special versions of those, such as the Mario Hanafuda sets

This week, Nintendo announced that two more sets of Pokémon playing cards would be released in Japan. Those are still regular playing card game sets, but with cards featuring illustrations from Pokémon Sun and Moon this time around. It costs 540 Yen, and will be released before the end of the month in Japan.

Alolan Vulpix distribution (Japan)

Since December 1st, players with a Japanese copy of Pokémon Sun and Moon can get a special Alolan Vulpix at the Pokémon Center store in Sapporo. This is part of celebrations for the opening of that store, but it turns out the Alolan Vulpix will soon be available from the other Pokémon Center stores across Japan (from February 1st to March 12th).

Naturally, it will be the exact same Pokémon, and you will not be able to get it a second time if you already got it at the Pokémon Center store in Sapporo.
