New ‘Mega Powers Collection’ in May Featuring Four New Full Arts!

A new “Mega Powers Collection” will be released on May 19th!

The star Pokemon of the collection will be M Lucario-EX, which will come as a full art jumbo card along with a brand new Lucario Spirit Link promo!

But that’s not it — the collection will also feature four full art foil promos of M Manectric-EX, M Lucario-EX, Jolteon-EX, and Zygarde-EX! All of these promos will be reprints of existing cards, but will feature brand new full art artwork! Only Lucario Spirit Link is brand new.

The box will also come with eight booster packs and a PTCGO code card.

It is unknown if the four regular-sized promos will feature the full art “texture” of full art cards from regular sets, as the full art promos in the Mythical Pokemon Collections did not have it. The jumbo Lucario certainly won’t have it since the Primal Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza-EX jumbos from 2014 lacked it.

It is likely all of these cards will be included in Japan’s The Best of XY set in April.

    Hmm... does this mean that all Mega Pokemon in the TCG have access to Spirit Links now? Or are a handful still missing?

    Heracross, Diance, Metagross, Blaziken, Swampert and Kangaskhan are still missing, unless I'm mistaken

    Please tell me we are getting complete reprints with spirit links! I would love to be able to actually use Mega Lucario, and putting Mega Manectric seems like a neat little thing to have. :)

    Pretty sure we're still missing Kangaskhan and Heracross, to name a few.

    I wouldn't take this as confirmation quite yet.

    The reasons for this is that these are all reprints of existing Mega Evolution cards, save Lucario Spirit Link. Still, this is all shoring up stuff from the last block, and while a bit messy, that isn't unheard of in the TCG. For that matter, it is possible they'll do something odd and make these part of the XY: Black Star Promo series instead of the SM: Black Star Promo series. I doubt that, but then again I did not expect this at all. XD

    I do find it much more likely they'll continue with Mega Evolutions in light of this. I'll settle for them kicking out the last few "missing" Spirit Link cards. Better late than never. ;)

    Full art Mega Lucario EX? I'm sold already!

    (Hopefully it'll be useable though, the old Lucario EX is out of rotation ^^; )

    FINALLY! A full art Zygarde that should have happened a long time ago. About time he got some love. Also looking forward to seeing what they will all look like

    Personally, I'm excited to see mega man get even shinier. And the Jolteon reprint is a nice touch.

    don't forget these are most likely from the Best of XY concept pack, so they likely will be textured (although the FA R&B Promos were in CP6 in Japan, but were most likely made for the R&B collections

    The price of Jolteon is definitely going to drop as long as the box is not to expensive.

    If you're referring to "before this new printing", it won't make a difference. Just like with Keldeo v Rayquaza decks and others, they will leave the original set print & numbers on them. They only way they would become Standard-legal is if they printed the cards as black star promo cards. However, I highly doubt that they will do that since they are reprints with the difference being the artwork. Besides that, if they were going to make them standard legal, they would have also reprinted Manectric EX along with the Mega, and they would both have to be promos. Like I said though, they are reprints so that's exceedingly unlikely.
