An online exhibition of Pokemon TCG illustrations has opened on the internet. The Pokemon Company is working with Anique to hold the Pokemon Trading Card Game Online Illustration Exhibition temporarily between August and October 2022. The website is available in multiple languages, including English.
The exhibition website primarily consists of three areas. The Life area showcases illustrations of Pokemon in their natural habitats. The History section highlights the evolution of card layouts since the TCG‘s debut in 1996. And the Artist area lets viewers search images made by a specific illustrator. The site also has a special area that features specific content, such as a room containing commentary from the card illustrators and another one dedicated to the winners of the 2022 illustration contest.
Anyone can visit the online exhibition website, but those who want to get actual viewing access to the illustrations must register new accounts on the site. The organizer only allows users to publish the site’s content on social media by using its official sharing feature. It strictly prohibits any other publication methods, such as manual screenshots.
The online exhibition is one of The Pokemon Company’s projects to promote the card game series. In July 2022, the company opened a casting call for an unscripted Pokemon TCG show series in Los Angeles. It is also working on launching Pokemon Trading Card Game Live, a free-to-play game for PCs and mobile devices, in 2022.
The Pokemon Trading Card Game Online Illustration Exhibition is available until Sunday, October 23, 2022.
