the promotional cards will be available starting october 27th to celebrate a special exhibition at the tokyo art museum. each card will retail for 450 yen and will feature a pocket monster boasting a scream attack that causes confusion (hence the crossover between the game and the painting). cards will be available through official pokémon centers in japan when fans purchase booster packs, though there will also be other munch / pokémon-related merch up for sale, too.

on the same day as the collection launches, the museum will launch a retrospective on edvard munch’s career. this will mark the first time that the scream and several other works will be exhibited in japan, making this a particularly exciting event.
