New Packaging for Japanese Pokémon Booster Boxes

A few weeks ago, the new packaging for the Japanese Pokémon booster boxes were announced on the official website.

The purpose: to find a solution to the problems encountered recently on the market. 

In fact, starting last September, some expansion packs of the Pokémon TCG will be reissued in a new version. This allowed us to discover these new boxes to the reprint of the S10D collection.

The new design of the boosters box will allow it to be opened along the dotted line via a detachable strip.


It's a direct solution to the growing entry into the market of re-sealed boosters box. Indeed, during the official reprint of Eevee Heroes, some unscrupulous retailers have not hesitated to sell re-sealed boxes of this expansion but including inside other items.

Moreover, this had made a lot of noise on social networks and this story has probably reached the ears of manufacturers because with this new design, it will be easy to know if a box of booster was opened or not.

The plastic film retains its place and function, which means that this additional protection appears as a bonus to ensure the authenticity of the product.

So don't be surprised to receive packages from Cardotaku (or other stores) with these new boxes. At the moment the modification is only for the S10D set, but it seems logical that the next expansion "s12 Paradigm Trigger" and reprint will have the same system.
