When will Black Friday Pokemon card deals start?

Things change and people do too, but there's one thing you can always rely on - when Black Friday takes place. It traditionally occurs the day after Thanksgiving and on the final Friday of November. In other words, the 2022 Black Friday Pokemon deals will be here in force on November 25.

Although that's when the best offers will kick off, it's a good idea to keep an eye out before then as well. The savings start to make an appearance from mid-November onward, and then they roll into the week after (at which point they'll become 'Cyber Monday' reductions).

Where will I find the best Black Friday Pokemon card deals?

Even though Amazon is always a good bet when it comes to Black Friday Pokemon cards, the likes of Walmart (in-store, anyway) are often pretty great in terms of discounts. Unfortunately, everyone's cottoned on to this fact and the shelves are stripped bare pretty fast. That means you'll need to be fast if you want to catch 'em all - OK, fine (we'll stop with the Pokejokes now).

- Amazon USA: A (opens in new tab)reliable choice for variety and deals on major packs (opens in new tab)
- Amazon UK: Trad (opens in new tab)itionally good for discounts on the biggest sets (opens in new tab)
- Walmart: Offer (opens in new tab)s a surprising range of card deals, especially in-store (opens in new tab)

Black Friday Pokemon card deals - what to expect

The Pokemon Trading Card Game doesn't get reduced in price very often, so that makes any discount you can lay your hands on worth considering. Because most sets old and new hold their value throughout the year, don't hesitate to pounce on any saving that appears this November - even if it's a small one.

In our experience, we've found that the majority of discounts are on tins or pre-made decks of cards... especially if they come with freebies like t-shirts. Boosters occasionally get a reduction too, but those offers seem rarer.

If you're a newcomer, you should definitely check out the Pokemon Battle Academy box

Actually, 'rare' is a good way to describe Black Friday Pokemon card deals. They aren't all that common, so don't hesitate if you see any kind of discount at all. It might be the best you'll get.

If you're a newcomer, you should definitely check out the Pokemon Battle Academy box this Black Friday though; it's a super effective introduction (apologies, it was too tempting) to the game itself and gives you everything you need to play right away. Because it often gets a price cut and has been reduced during Black Friday before, we'd say to keep an eye on it as we enter the November sales season.
