Pokémon trading cards sure have come a long way from their humble beginnings in the late ’90s. Nearly 20 years from the launch of the original TCG, some pretty amazing cards have been introduced that resemble works of art rather than playing cards.

Enter: the Team Rocket TCG set. This beautiful collection includes two full-art Pokémon cards, one featuring the Team Rocket we all know and love from the anime, and the other showcasing a grimacing Giovanni and Persian.

The set also comes bundled with a gold Team Rocket coin, playing card sleeves, and an impressive Team Rocket inspired briefcase.

 
You don’t think Team Rocket would let you get off paying a reasonable amount of money for this set, do you? Japanese fans of the TCG can reserve their sets for ¥ 12,960 each, or about $128 USD. You can find the reservation page here. We don’t expect this set to last too long, so if you’re in the market, pick it up before it blasts off.
