Do you remember the Pokémon TCGs that were announced last week? New cards remastered with the art of the original decks, to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the series? I got to attend a special press event to show off these cards, and did a little unboxing video, and filmed myself playing a match against Expert Review’s own Katharine Byrne. 

I have to say, it was a ton of fun. My brother has been majorly into the game r years, even going as far as the World’s Championship in Vancouver a few years back, but my history with this franchise has mostly been limited to the odd casual play and Pokémon Go, so this was a new experience for me – all I can say is, please don’t judge my mediocre card game skill and over enthusiasm for a sparkly Mewtwo card.

All in all, I had a wonderful time, though I will admit, while I didn’t stay and try to win the giant Pikachu plushie, my favourite part was the super cute Pikachu tote bag I got at the end!
