The Pokémon Company has confirmed that Pokémon Evolutions, a collection of cards based on the base set series that launched in 1999, will be hitting store shelves as soon as October 30th.


Pokémon Evolutions features 100 cards, most with the original artwork and style from the 1999 base set, 12 EX cards and 4 Break cards. Booster packs will be available first at Toys”R”Us stores on October 30th and will then slowly make their way elsewhere starting on November 2nd.
