Pokemon / Nintendo / Adidas - Pikachu World Cup Promo Cards


2014
Pikachu World Cup Promo Cards
Pokemon / Nintendo / Adidas
Japan
3 cards

It makes a change to include football cards from sets where you wouldn't normally expect to find them. Here we have three cards issued in 2014 featuring the Pokemon character Pikachu.
The first two cards were only given out to elementary schoolchildren who participated in the 2014 J-League game, during the last week in April and first week in May, 2014. There were two different versions of the card given out. The cards have the "Pokemon the Movie XY" logo on the middle left side of the card. These are holofoil cards, with mini holographic images of stars all over them.
The non-holofoil Adidas promo card was only given out at special locations to Japanese supporters who watched the Japanese World Cup matches, in June, 2014. It has the official Japan Football Association and Adidas logo on the right middle of the card. None of these cards have ever been made available for sale in any toy stores, Pokemon Center, theme decks, sets, or booster packs.
