Inspired by Norwegian painter Edvard Munch -- best known for a series of paintings known as 'The Scream' -- a new Pokemon card collection features the artist's distinct style imprinted on the faces of classic Pokemon. Revealed through the official Japanese Pokemon Trading Card website, each distinct card features either Pikachu, Eevee, Rowlet, Psyduck or Mimikyu. Each card also gives the monsters a scream attack that will disorient and cause confusion to other cards it attacks.
The pairing of a Pokemon card collection and an iconic artist may seem strange, but this mixing of mediums is actually being made in conjunction with an Edvard Munch retrospective exhibit. Coming to the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum on October 27, 2018, the same day the cards are released. The Scream-inspired Pokemon card collection will be available for sale at the exhibit and in booster packs at Japanese Pokemon Centers.
