{{-}}As well as producing unique or variant cards available at events, [[Nintendo]] has also released several varieties of promotional items in which to deliver special cards. Such mediums include [[Value packs & sets (TCG)|value packs, box sets]] and collector tins. The list below focuses on collector tins, each of which contain a promotional card and booster packs from recent Expansions. The items are listed in (roughly) chronological order and contain details of their contents.
 
*''{{TCG|EX Emerald}}'' booster packs (×2)
*''{{TCG|EX Crystal Guardians}}'' booster packs (×2)
 
===Spring 2007 Collector's Tins===

[[File:EXTin4_2.jpg|thumb|200px|right|Spring 2007 Collector's Tins (UK/EU)]]
These tins were unusual as the tin designs do not match any of the promotional cards included (with the exception of Tyranitar in the UK and Europe), and the promotional cards differ depending on the country the tins were available in.

[[File:PLCollectorTins.jpg|thumb|200px|right|Spring 2009 Collector's Tins]]
These tins were released on March 2, 2009.

All three cards are reprints; however, both Giratina LV.''X'' and Shaymin LV.''X'' were created with English exclusive artwork at the time.
 
Prior to the release of the tins, it was announced that each would hold one figure from the [[Pokémon Trading Figure Game]]. However, the TFG was later discontinued and these plans were dropped.
