May’s English Set: ‘Guardians Rising’

Our second Sun & Moon set will be named Guardians Rising. It’ll be released in America and Europe this May, as usual. No other official information is known at this time.

Based on the name, the set will be our equivalent of Japan’s second Sun & Moon sets, which are named Islands Waiting for You and Moonlight of Alola. Both sets and their products feature Tapu Koko-GX, Tapu Bulu-GX, Lycanroc, etc. The sets will be released in Japan on March 13th.

    Yup and prereleases are April 22nd-30th. Course, I probably posted that in four places so far since I learned it. But dang it, people have to know. Xo I really want that secret grass energy, it better be in this set. Go well with my Lurantis GX. You know what else would go good with it? A secret rare Ultra ball. qwq Aaaaand I just hurt my heart but it's okay, I got cookies.

    Hopefully Guardians Rising will be just as good as S&M Base in terms of playability and ultra rare count.

    For once we get a decent english name :D I really want a Mimikyu GX in this set, I mean imagine an Prism foil Mimikyu GX 0_O. It looks like SR energy in this set will be {G}, DCE, {L}, and {F} or maybe we'll get {Y} instead of {L}

    Might be, might be, but the base set is the real investment if you get that Ultra Ball...possibly...depending on how many come out <w< >w> And considering my prerelease had none...Yes, good stuff.

    I won't be surprised if we get a Kommo-o GX.

    To be fair, if I got one, I wouldn't trade it. xD

    Guardians Rising...That name reminds me of Emerging Powers. Hopefully it won't be as pointless as that, or, god forbid, Flashfire. This better not fall under that second-set curse that's been going on for the past two eras. Seems promising though, if this somehow combines SM1+ and the main Japanese set.

    That begs the question: What would happen if your friend pulled a Tapu-GX?

    Pretty sure that it's supposed to be Tapu Bulu, not Tapu Balu.
     
  16. Lol predicted. Almost guaranteeing a Nihilego-GX in next set.

    I wonder if we'll get Ultra Beast cards in the set. I wonder if they will be regular cards, GXs, or a new type of card, maybe with a special type of Ability, based on the aura they have in the game. Also would like more GXs of Totem Pokémon, maybe Mimikyu or Kommo-o? Hopefully this set is good, because so far SM is making me happy, and I want to keep that feel.
    Also, the name is pretty cool.

    I guess few cards from SM1+ like DrampaGX, few cards from the Rockruff deck, well 8 of them because some were promos will be featured in the set. Who knows we will get SRDCE from Guardians Rising packs. Excited much!

    Possible Tapu Bulu Collection box with a cool figure and not a stupid pin? Please TPCi?

    Well I mean...That is what we Professors do but it's his card. But that kid is pretty lucky.
