Amidst all the Pokémon GO madness, it's heartwarming, bittersweet moments like this that can really strike a chord of positivity in an otherwise mad and wild circus.

All hail shiny Charizard!

Starting on February 27th, an identical re-print of the original set of Pokémon trading cards will go on sale in Japan. The cards will come in a pack of sixty with a coin and player's manual for 1,300 yen. 

Unluckily for the rest of us, this release is so far only planned for Japan, as it coincides with the anniversary of the original card game's release in Japan in 1996.
