As everyone eagerly awaits the release of the classic Pokémon TCG, a documentary takes us back in time to the origins of the Pokémon TCG. The video actually lets us discover that sixteenth set of the Pokémon Trading Card Gamebut published by The Pokémon Company.

The video was published by Matt Matoba, the founder of Matoba Design, who sheds some light on the matter mysterious Wizards of The Coast Jamboree set, the sixteenth Pokémon TCG set. Matt's research was extremely thorough and was condensed into a 35-minute video that culminated in a series of interviews with former Wizards of the Coast employees.

Jamboree was scheduled for release in fall 2003, but was never released because Wizards of The Coast lost the rights to the Pokémon Trading Card Game. At the moment we don't know how big the set is or what cards it contains, although some former Wizards employees have told Matoba that it would be the first set to be made entirely by the American company.

As far as we know, the base of the set had to be some kind fun mix of Pokemon cards Generation I and Generation II, many of which were carried over from other canceled sets from previous years. Precisely because of this irony and "composition" between different influences, Jamboree would not have liked the upper floors of Nintendo.

It seems anyway Wizards of The Coast took great care of that About the project: The company had prepared it box art of packages and gods booster boxesand lots of promotional material. All of this promotional and marketing material was eventually canceled when Nintendo stalled the project. For now, though, you can check out the beta version of the map Joltheonwhich you can find at the end of this message.
