These Pokémon X & Y Playing Cards Would Be Perfect for Poké Poker

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Let's all speculate over brand confusion with Trading Cards, or not...

When it comes to Pokémon X & Y, it's unlikely that many merchandising opportunities will be missed; the games have sold in seriously impressive quantities and have a fiercely loyal fanbase, so collectibles and extras are likely to be doing a reasonable trade.

As is often the case, some of the best Nintendo merchandise is in Japan, so the X & Y decks below — themed around Xerneas and Yveltal on the back and showing different 'mon on the front — are available for ¥525, roughly $5USD.

Whether playing Solitaire alone, Rummy with youngsters or the serious business of Poker, these would make it that little bit more enjoyable.

If they don't come to NA, then it is Ebay for me. They cannot region lock these

They would be perfect for my son's stocking or mine for that matter. We both love Pokemon.

I love these! I hope they will be sold in NA somehow. These would be great Club Nintendo rewards.

Apparently Pokemon playing cards have been available in Japan in a flavor for almost every game since Red/Green. It baffles me that they haven't released any anywhere else. I'd love a deck of these.

I collect decks of cards. I would love a X deck especially if there are Pancham/Pangoro cards!

There are no pictures of naked ladies on those cards therefore they are not appropriate for poker.
