    Promo #020 is now out, and plenty of people may recognize it as a member of the 7-Eleven promo family. Yep, we're getting them ever-so-steadily, and here's a new addition to the group:

    Ludicolo!

    Yep, he's ours now in all his holo glory. How do you get one? Nintendo has just released a nifty little EX Value Pack for $9.99, contianing one booster each of Pokemon EX: Ruby & Sapphire, Pokemon EX: Sandstorm and Pokemon EX: Dragons. Buy one box, get 3 boosters and an exclusive promo. Sounds good, don't it? And if you want to see a scan, you can always check out Pokemon Zeo!

    BTW, in my Sandstorm booster, I got a holo Ludicolo too. Talk about irony! :D

    I got mine from a comic book store. Most likely they'll be available there, or through retail stores like Target(!), Wal Mart, and other places that sell Pokemon TCG stuffs. Keep an eye open!

    You said that it is a box package. Can you describe the box?

    That one described pretty much matches the box I picked up(the MSRP being different by a dollar or so, but that's neither here nor there). The front of the box displays the Pokemon-e TCG logo, a picture of each of the boosters, and is labelled 'EX Series Value Pack' at the bottom of the front. The background is dual colored red and blue, and the boosters inside come in blister packs. The ludicolo itself comes in its own wrapper.

    The back of the box shows 3 boosters again and a picture of the Ludicolo, so if you're unsure, pick up a box and scope out the back. If there's no Ludicolo, it probably doesn't come with one.

    Yeah too bad it's not cool enough to have been a League promo!

    Scene: Several months ago at the Promo Planning Committee:

    1) Let's see...we have these promos that were released in Japan, what should we do with them?
    2) Let's make the McDonald Starters League promos - just like the Starters in the game.
    various voices) Great! Good idea! Fantastic.
    3) Hey we're creating a tin, so let's put 7-11 Pikachu and Meowth into that one as they are very popular on the TV show.
    various voices) Great! Good idea! Fantastic.
    1) Well we need something for the Target deal we just inked - how about the Starters and Whismer, a nice unique Pokémon that will not have been released yet.
    2) Can i get Latios & Latias for League?
    3) NO! We need those for the DVD!
    2) Oh, how about Jirachi?
    4) Can't we need that and the 7-11 Absol for Secret Rares in Team Magma vs Team Aqua.
    5) And Ludicolo is going to be sold with some boosters.
    6) Can i get Armaldo ex?
    .......Silence......
    1) Umm no, we don't want to release an EX to League. How about some Special Energy cards?
    2) OK but how about Flygon?
    4) Oh sorry but we have plans for that one.
    2) How about Regice, Regirock, and Registeel? The Players Club promos?
    1) Um again those are EX Pokémon so....
    2) Oh ok forgot. Can i have Ash's Treecko, May's Torchic, and Brock's Mudkip?
    ........silence...........
    ........silence...........
    ........silence...........
    3) What are those?
    1) We really don't think those are appropriate League material.
    2) *huffy* Well what ones can i have?
    1) How about Oran Berry?
    2) *faints*



    Disclaimer: No i wasn't there. I can only imagine that that is how all the promos people would be happy to get at League wound up as promos for other venues.

    Oh well going to go put our "winner" Oran Berry's into the collection....

    So these are available in gaming stores as well? Hopefully we'll be able to get them in Canada as well.

    I live in Orem and my local card shop received some today (Mr. E's Cards and Collectibles). I checked Wal-Mart and Target today too and neither had them yet. Your local shop should have some soon.

    Finally got my hands on this item in an area gaming/card shop! Here's a pic of the box with contents:

    Basically they've put a blister-pack of each R&S, SS & DR in a box with a sealed copy of promo #020.
