These are not Fake Pokemon GO Pokemon Cards!
Pokémon has teased a new collaborative set with the Pokémon GO mobile game named Pokémon TCG: Pokémon GO.
This Pokemon GO set is from what we can tell, the rumoured Summer Mini set we covered recently. It's a collaborative set with the popular mobile game Pokémon GO. The English version will release in 'Summer 2022' as a placeholder date.
This set is confirmed to be S10b Sword & Shield Enhanced Expansion Pack Pokémon GO in Japan.
Some details on the booster pack art: Blissey is on top of a gym. Gyarados matches the original load screen.
There are also teasers video down below. Niantic revealed the English version on their site but without details, only the booster pack artwork and Summer 2022. Japan did reveal this set with slightly more set details (check below).
This is part of their collaboration which started in 2021, when they were giving out the Professor's Research Professor Willow promo during the 25th Anniversary of Pokemon. This set has also been teased for: Indonesia, Korea, Thailand, Taiwan/Hong Kong, which also release on June 17.
Lastly, this set may be for the English version, the rumoured SWSH 10.5 Special Set that is set for release (no confirmation) in Summer 2022. Maybe a simultaneous global release could be happening on June 17.
There is little revealed yet so stay tuned for more information.

Our rumour article mentioned a special set product of this set including Mewtwo V. Mewtwo is shown on the booster pack artwork, so this rumour may be true. What was not correct in that article, is that 2 cards would be included per booster pack. However, we mentioned that the information on that rumour article may be incorrect and taken with a pinch of salt.
