This is the first crossover between the two products, effectively making Pokémon GO canonical within the world created by Game Freak. Below we leave you the press release:
“A collaboration between Pokémon GO and the Pokémon Trading Card Game has been finalized!
2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Green Version. And, just like video games, the Pokémon Trading Card Game is also celebrating its 25th anniversary. For the occasion, we have created a collaboration between Pokémon GO and the Pokémon Trading Card Game!
In the first part of the collaboration, in the summer of 2021, the moment that marks the fifth anniversary of Pokémon GO, Professor Willow will appear on a Pokémon TCG card. We plan to make this card available in all regions of the world where Pokémon TCG products are sold.
Starting from the end of May 2021, we intend to reveal more details on the illustration and content of Professor Willow's card and how to obtain the card in each region. Announcements will arrive as further partnerships are established. "
