Pokemon Release Updates

We hope everyone is well and safe just now during these very difficult times. We, the resident geeks, want to first off thank each and every one of you that has helped support our online & Retail store in Glasgow.

As everyone is aware the recent difficulties with Covid-19 restrictions and Brexit has had a huge impact on the supply chain, affecting toys, comics, gifts and particularly the Pokémon TCG franchise. We want to give as much information to our customers as possible about the situation so everyone is aware of the current disruption.

Some of the Pokémon lines listed above will be supplied in waves over the months after release due to supply limitations.

We may not be able to invoice and ship your order in full for the official release date but will allocate stock to you from each new wave as it arrives.

An accurate timetable of deliveries is not currently available but we will let you know as these are confirmed.

We have made changes to the way pre-orders are being processed which should improve the speed and clear the back log quickly as stock arrives. We are now limiting all Pokemon TCG goods to strictly 1 per customer. This will change on a day to day basis depending on availability of stock and we hope to update these rules as supply eases.

Our customer service phone lines and live chat are working Monday to Friday from 9am – 5:30pm, please note that we are experiencing a high volume of queries across all products, please bear with us during this time. The team at Geek-aboo would like to extend our heartfelt THANKS *Covid fistbump* during this period.

UPDATE: Allocations and Upcoming Releases

May 19th, 2021|

Allocations for Pokemon TCG products are still ongoing, but we are working hard on gaining additional stock for our loyal customers. With the recent re-opening of our store in Glasgow we are doing our best to provide a fair distribution across our online and retail sales. The Pokémon Company are concentrating all their efforts on printing more stock of upcoming lines. This will mean larger caps for us and more happy customers for these big new releases! To find out more about what products are subject to allocations, please go to the next page for a full breakdown or click here.

Sword and Shield 6: Chilling Reign is still scheduled for release on Friday 18 June and the demand for the new product release has been overwhelming! We will send out details of any allocations as soon as we have delivery confirmation and can be reasonably sure that our expected quantities of stock are arriving in time for launch.

Even with the caps in place for customer orders, some allocations will be necessary. Once we have confirmed restock dates for Wave 2 stock of Chilling Reign, we will fulfil any pre-orders to any customers who have missed the first wave of deliveries.

Pokémon Allocations Updated 25.03.2021

March 25th, 2021|

The following lines, now due for release on 12th April were originally scheduled for release in Q4 2020.

Pokemon TCG: Sword & Shield Elite Trainer Box Plus Zacian / Zamazenta
Pokemon TCG: Sword & Shield Zacian and Zamazenta Ultra Premium Collection

In preparation for their original release date we carried out a pre allocation of these lines back in October.

Please be aware that this pre-order allocation to customers is no longer valid as the quantity of stock we are now receiving for launch is only a fraction of what was originally expected to arrive last year.

Geek-aboo comments: We will be contacting customers who currently have a pre-order with us as the items arrive to complete the orders. Due to stock allocations not all orders will be fulfilled in the first wave.
