[Pokémon TCG] After 11 Months, Pokémon Card 151 [SV2a] Gets a Reprint

It's been more than a hot minute since the last print run, to say the least—but it'll be worth the wait for sure.


[Update 19 Apr 2024] The reprint of Pokémon Card 151 [SV2a] has arrived ahead of schedule—the first reprinted booster packs and boxes made their way onto selected store shelves across Japan on 18 April 2024.

One booster pack sells for 290 JPY (~US$1.90) while a booster box carries a price tag of 5,800 JPY (~US$38).


When the Pokémon Card 151 [SV2a] expansion set was first released in June 2023, it sent shockwaves throughout the Pokémon TCG community—especially among older players and collectors who’d been Pokémon fans for decades. By playing to these players’ and collectors’ sense of nostalgia, Creatures Inc. scored an absolute megahit. Cards and booster packs from Pokémon Card 151 [SV2a] ended up becoming 2023’s biggest sellers.

Given such demand, many had been wondering when the next mass restock of Pokémon Card 151 [SV2a] will take place. Well, that question has now been answered—according to Pokémon Japan, an upcoming new print run will see Pokémon Card 151 [SV2a] restocked in stores across Japan starting from May 2024.

Almost immediately after Pokémon Japan’s announcement, prices of Pokémon Card 151 [SV2a] booster boxes began to drop. For example, the price of a Pokémon Card 151 [SV2a] booster box on the SNKRDUNK app is now 14,999 JPY (~US$99), down from 20,000 JPY (~US$132) at its peak. This price is expected to further fall as the reprint date nears.

No information has yet been confirmed regarding a reprint of the 151 [MEW] expansion set, the English version of Pokémon Card 151 [SV2a].
