Official ‘The Scream’-Inspired Pokemon Cards Now Exist

The scariest time of the year just got collectable.


Pokemon cards may not be as popular now as they once were, but there are still millions of devout collectors of everyone’s favourite pocket monster cards.

Things have definitely evolved (lol) in the world of Pokemon cards, and the latest release features none other than the art of Edvard Munch.

If you’re not familiar with his name you’re more than likely familiar with his work, as Munch is the mastermind who created ‘The Scream’ – one of the most terrifying pieces of art of all time.

Munch’s ‘The Scream’ just got a lot more adorable thanks to the Pokemon collab though, as a set of Pokemon cards have been released in his honour.

The cards feature some of Pokemon’s most famous characters, including Rowlett, Mimikyu, Eevee, Psyduck and – of course – Pikachu.


Unfortunately even if you love these cards as much as I do, you probably won’t be able to catch ’em all – unless you happen to be in Japan.

The special cards have been created just for the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, which will be celebrating Munch and his work with an exhibition that will run from 27th October 2018 to 20th January 2019 [via Resetera], and it’ll be displaying the cards as part of the special event.

According to Resetera, you’ll be able to pick yourself up a set at the museum and Pokemon Centre Online (Japan), with some Pokemon Centres also selling select cards.

Each card can be gotten in different ways, with the site stating that Mimikyu comes with the mini-file (presumably a collectable binder), Psyduck, Rowlett and Eeevee can each be selected when buying two booster packs, and Pikachu is yet to be confirmed.

And in case you were wondering, their attack is: “Scream: Make both battle Pokemon confused.”
