Celebi V and Sandaconda V have been revealed today, and their Special Art versions are free promos.
Also the regular versions of the aforementioned V cards from the set are revealed, these are completely new cards and not new artwork of the old Celebi V and Sandaconda V cards from Sword & Shield Base Set and Rebel Clash.
This promotion was teased a while ago to card shops in Japan, but we did not knew at the time which Pokémon would be featured as a V card. We speculated Celebi V and Regirock V would be these cards at the time, only Celebi was true.
- Buying 2 boxes of S6H Silver Lance gets you a promo Special Art Sandaconda V (174/S-P), while buying 2 boxes of S6K Jet Black Poltergeist gets you a Special Art Celebi V (175/S-P).
- Both cards are Special Art V cards, and their respective VMAX cards are coming in the upcoming sets S6H Silver Lance / S6K Jet-Black Poltergeist.
- The promotion will start the same day when the set releases on April 23, 2021 and will end as soon as the promos are out of stock.
- This promotion is only for select Pokémon Card Gym stores (similar to Pokémon Leagues here that have a Local Game Store) in Japan.
Illustrator Teeziro that illustrated the Special Art Celebi V promo, is a new artist for Pokémon Card Game. But this is not Teeziro's first involvement with Creatures. This artist was selected in the primary selection of 50 entries with Charizard during the 2019 Illustration Grand Prix, but did not win the contest.
The cards have been translated by ToineLay, thank you!
