Adding to the Pokémon: Detective Pikachu movie hype, a new set of trading cards based on the spin-off series has been confirmed for release.

Japanese retailers have revealed details surrounding the upcoming set, including the image you can see down below. The Detective Pikachu collection is a subset of the main TCG series, consisting of 24 cards in total plus at least one mystery design. The packs will cost 200 yen each, will contain four random cards from the set, and will arrive in stores on 26th April 2019.

According to Serebii.net, this collection will also be released in the west through special promotional boxes. The release date for this set is, of course, designed to tie in with the main event itself; the movie hits theatres on 10th May 2019.

Another Pokémon trading card expansion has also been announced for 31st May 2019. The set is called Miracle Twin - which sheds some light on the trademark discovered a couple of months ago - and will focus on Mew and Mewtwo. For this set, Serebii reports that more than 94 cards will be included and that it will become available in the west "around August 2019".
