The UK should be very happy and excited! It was known before that The Football Association and The Pokémon Company International have a partnership since September 2019. But now they have revealed a collection of UK exclusive Pokémon Futsal promo's available at GAME UK stores. These promo's will have an exclusive Pokémon Futsal stamp on there. Pikachu on the Ball (001/005) and Eevee on the Ball (002/005) have been revealed.
- Added official high resolution image of the promo card.
- Along the promo card, free Futsal themed promo card holders are also given away.
- Also the Fifth Pikachu promo card will be given out if you register your Club for The FA Pokémon Youth Futsal Programme and you’ll be in with the chance to receive the Pikachu England Futsal Promo Card.
- This Eevee on the Ball card is not an 'Eevee' card and can not be used for cards that evolve from 'Eevee' cards in play.
- Galar Starters have been confirmed for the other 3 promo's. We can expect Scorbunny on the Ball, Grookey on the Ball and Sobble on the Ball in the future. Also in-hand image of the Eevee on the Ball promo. Thank you to PokeGuardian Podcast Host PokeTaj for the images! Thank you Agile Fox for the unsealed promo image!
