‘Sun and Moon Strengthening Expansion Pack’

Sun Moon Strengthening PackAs posted a few months ago, a new mini-set named Sun and Moon Strengthening Expansion Pack will be released in Japan on January 27th. The official Pokemon Card website has just revealed the set’s booster pack.

Like most concept pack sets, all of the cards in this mini-set will be holo. There will be 51 cards, some of which will be Sun & Moon reprints, but the rest will be brand new. Each booster pack will come with five holo cards, one of which is an Energy.

UPDATE: An image of the booster box has been released, showing art for Oricorio (Baile Style), Sudowoodo, and Mudsdale.

    The real question is wether to get the decks released with it.

    Another "part of the main set" thing.

    I really hope the Sudowoodo means that Bonsly, and the rest of the Baby Pokémon for that matter, finally will get a card or two. It's been so long since we've seen the Baby Pokémon in the TCG, and since no "Baby Evolutions" were in the main set, it might mean that we'll get them now.

    Man, I guess it really means I'm playing Pidgeot-EX until it rotates. Please, PLEASE make a full art gold Max Potion.

    the pack art looks like an action blockbuster from the 80s.

    Lunala is the Big Bad and Solgaleo is the powerful Good Guy that dies because someone else is Chosen and its time is up

    This stadium will be a 1/2 staple for certain decks. It can be useful for mega scizor players when facing volcanion decks.

    Wow, Sylveon is pretty good. It can reliably two-shot most of the meta, and it can help with disruption and setting up. If it gets a good support card, it's going to almost certainly get a deck in the meta.

    As a Mega Scizor player, I NEED that Stadium. So sad I can't use it for Regionals in 2 weeks:(

    The Lunala is interesting, I don't think that will be a card we soon forget about.

    I am disappointed with Sylveon-GX because it is suppose to be a healing Pokemon

    Now here we go again with this weak Lunala... both of the GX and regular Lunala are weak....

    I cant wait to see the other cards in this set:D

    Sylveon Gx is great. Go second, attach fairy to energy evolution eevee to evolve it, then use the top attack to find dce + whatever you need (draw / more pokes). The Gx attack could also be useful if your opponent is setting up pokemon on the bench, otherwise I don't think it's great. 110 for y + dce I would also say is very nice.

    Sylveon + Parallel City could prove interesting.

    Fam, let's cry together. Both in joy for this stadium, and the sorrow that it is so far off.

    If they have only 2 pokemon or just 1 and you used the GX attack on Sylveon don't you just win then and there?

    It only targets the bench, so the active Pokemon is safe from the effect.
