The Pokémon TCG: Detective Pikachu Mewtwo-GX Case File (US$19.99) is another item in the Detective Pikachu series of Pokémon TCG products and it features none other than the Genetic Pokémon Mewtwo.

As with the other Case Files, the Mewtwo-GX Case File contains special Detective Pikachu booster packs that aren’t generally available for retail purchase. This one in particular contains a total of four Detective Pikachu booster packs in addition to two Sun & Moon series booster packs (not specifically the Sun & Moon set, but booster packs from that series — the Case File I received had one Sun & Moon—Burning Shadows and one Sun & Moon base set).

Inside of the Mewtwo-GX Case File
A look at the Mewtwo-GX Case File from the inside. It flips open to reveal the jumbo promo card as well as the normal-sized version.

The Mewtwo-GX Case File also contains a special promo card, SM196 Mewtwo-GX, as well as a special jumbo oversized version of the promo card. This Mewtwo-GX has Telekinesis to hit an opponent’s Pokémon even on the bench; it has Reigning Pulse for damage and instant confusion, but it’s rather expensive; and its GX attack, Psychic Nova GX, effectively gives it a damage shield for the next turn while also doing heavy damage.

The Charizard-GX Case File (US$19.99) is priced similarly and contains the same contents as the Mewtwo-GX Case File, except it comes with a Charizard-GX promo card and jumbo oversized card instead of the Mewtwo-GX one. That may be another option if you’re looking for a different option in that same price point.
