‘Kingdra-EX Box’ in March!

Kingdra-EX from Fates Collide (#73)

Surprisingly, a new “Kingdra-EX Box” will be released in America and Europe on March 24th.

The box will come with a Dragon-type Kingdra-EX as both a regular foil promo card and jumbo foil promo card, four booster packs, and a PTCGO code card.

The Kingdra-EX is said to channel the powers of Water and Lightning, so it’s likely the card will be an alternate art reprint of Kingdra-EX from Fates Collide. The card will probably originate from Japan’s The Best of XY set releasing in April.

    Ironically, Kingdra EX is not even remotely close to being "The Best of XY".

    Well, if they DID reprint The Best of XY, we'd be seeing Night March/Shaymin-EX returning for another YEAR of play, and nobody wants that except Night March players.

    Thats true. Some cards that I would love to see return though, are Xerosic/Startling Megaphone (we really need one of those), Lucario EX (which obviously is not a biased statement), Blacksmith, Fighting Type support Trainers, Manectric EX/M Manectric EX, AZ, and maybe Battle Compressor. Another interesting idea, would be printing Night March Joltik and Night March Pumpkaboo, but NOT reprinting Night March Lampent. This would cap Night March's damage output at 160, and although thats still great, it doesnt hit the magic number necessary without cards that increase its damage. This in theory, would still be reprinting "The Best of XY", while not destroying the Standard metagame.

    On another note, assuming next years Standard format is Breakthrough-onwards, some cards that I'd love to see reprinted are Sky Field, Double Dragon Energy, Enhanced Hammer, Lysandre, Level Ball, Hex Maniac, Hoopa EX (and maybe Shaymin EX... just maybe...), and lastly, both Giratina EX and Lugia EX from AOR.

    I feel that some of the 15 or so cards I've listed above would bring far more balance to our current Standard Format and future Standard Formats as well. In particular, Double Dragon Energy is the card which singlehandedly makes Dragon Types playable, and Lysandre acts as an omnipresent but balanced threat (unlike Pokemon Catcher before its Errata). If these two cards alone, as well an item card to remove tools, were added back into the Standard format, I feel 100% confident that the format would be majorly improved in all aspects.

    I'd rather have Night March over the Yveltal Meta we have right now

    Same with WPM, I thought we were done with EXs?
     
  7. I thought we were done with EX's after the R/S/E/ era but look how wrong I was. Don't assume anything.

    And let's not forget that BREAKS were basically just Lv. X cards.

    Yeah, you're right. (Even beginners should be able to see the differences!)

    I know we saw this coming... but... I just don't understand why they would push marketing towards this specific direction. It's one thing if all of these EX Pokemon were strongly playable in Expanded, but... this? I don't know if this is a good idea coming from TPCi.

    Still, they will do as they will, I suppose.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with the competitive market and all about cross-promotion with Pokémon Go. Don't read too much into it. By and large these kinds of products are geared more towards kids and casual collectors, which is part of why the boxes are always huge, too.

    Isn't Kingdra a slightly viable card? If so, then depending on the pricing on the box, it's a great way to get a viable card (like Scizor-EX) for people that want to run it in a deck.
     
  16. Would have been more surprised if it had been a new card.

    I wish there was a good way to get the jumbo card inside of it, as well as the previous jumbo cards, without getting the boxes themselves as I don't need the EX's or the packs really.

    That makes a lot more sense.
