Release and History

Jungle is the name given to the second main expansion of the Pokémon TCG, released a few months after Base Set. In Japan, it was released as Pokémon Jungle. It's based on Pokémon Red, Blue, and Green, featuring Pokémon from Generation I.

The English expansion was released on June 16, 1999, over two years after the Japanese expansion was released, on March 5, 1997. It was originally planned to be released in the United States around August, 1999 (and rumored as late as October). However, since Topps, a competitor, was releasing their Pokémon trading cards earlier in the summer, Wizards decided to push its English 1st edition Jungle release far ahead of schedule, to June 16. Within two weeks, 1st Edition Jungle was sold out, so Unlimited Jungle was released shortly thereafter.

In the Japanese release, it contained 48 cards; however, the English release was expanded to 64 cards, since Wizards of the Coast decided to make both holographic and non-holographic versions of the cards that were originally only holographic. This was a recurrent strategy that Wizards used, in order to both make sets larger, as well as prevent packs from guaranteeing a Holographic card.

The 1st Edition print run of Jungle also accidentally contained the extremely rare 1st Edition Promo Pikachu – also known as the "Ivy Pikachu" card – which in this case differentiated from the promo by having a 1st Edition stamp. It is believedby whom?needs citation! that there was 1 of these to every 10 boxes, making it very valuable.

In the Australian release of Unlimited Edition product, Wizards decided to use red lettering (instead of yellow) for the word "Pokémon" on relevant packaging. This included Booster Boxes, Booster Packs, and Theme Decks. This direction was intended to prevent counterfeiting.

Trivia

  • The set symbol is reminiscent of a Vileplume's floral coronal on its head.
  • Early prints of the Unlimited Holofoil cards were printed without the Jungle set symbol. This error was corrected later in the print run.
  • As a result of this misprint, collectors often incorporate three English variants into their compendiums, for completionist purposes.
  • PSA recognizes this variant, and publishes misprint card counts separately in their Jungle population reports, as of May 30, 2020.[1]
  • This set was released in several other languages, constituting various rarity.
  • This is one of the smallest sets in Pokemon history, with only 48 unique illustrations.
  • Japanese booster boxes contained 60 packs per box.
  • Every Japanese booster pack contained 10 cards, including a Holofoil card
  • English booster boxes contained 36 booster packs, and (on average) 12 packs per box contained a Holofoil card
  • English booster packs and blister packs contained 11 non-energy cards, and had approximately a 33% chance of containing a Holofoil card
  • The set artwork was produced by only four artists:
  • Ken Sugimori - 11 artworks (22.9%)
  • The most rares, with 6
