    As much as I love the look of Tapu Koko, not a fan of this box. I think yellow on black would have been better...black on yellow kinda hurts my eyes.

    It's funny, I'm EXACTLY in the opposite position to you. I'm not a fan of Tapu Koko, or of bright colours in general, but I think this looks really, really good, especially the sleeves. o.o The dice look like trash, though.

    Look at the 1-Die. We finally see the set symbol. What does it mean? the box is so beautiful! Additional info: Behind the packaging cover are the pack arts of the Guardians Rising. YouTubers did that.

    A little insert on the pack arts. I know why they remove the cameo Pokémon in Koko and NightLyc in the English pack art, because it'll be like Dragon Frontiers which has 2 Pokemon in 1 Artwork, unless Mysterious Treasures, Team Rocket, and Leg. Coll. has it, too.

    Ugly? It's not ugly. It's actually a great symbol because it matches the Tapu's designs.

    I'm buying this for sure, I actually really like the yellow coloring on it. I'm already a big fan of Guardians Rising and this will only give me a reason to buy more of it.

    Like the design of this box very much. Slick looking, but why just one box though? Imagine a darkish green Bulu box with the black.

    Can't wait to see what swellow from this set does but then again it'll probably be another mediocre card

    It won't. Because ranger only removes existing effects, and all effects from attacks that happen AFTER ranger is being played will still count. So because minior damages itself right after it's attack, it can not be stopped by Pokemon Ranger.

    Ugh those sleeves are beautiful, but I had to give these up when Walmart Canada started charging 59.99 for them.

    Is it just me or does the set symbol look like a Metagross/Mega Metagross?

    IMO I looks a lot better than the Solgaleo/Lunala, but I don't think I will get one this time around.

    Not quite, TotoBoss: you're right about almost everything, including the final conclusion that Pokémon Ranger won't help Minior survive. Just in case there is something that can, I want to be precise for the sake of Master Shuckle.

    "Cosmosplosion" has an effect that automatically KO's whatever uses the attack, instead of damaging or even placing damage counters upon that Pokémon. The specific timing is that Minior KO's itself by the end of Step F* of attacking (as opposed to after its attack). Doesn't change the basis of your reasoning, though; Pokémon Ranger removes all effects of attacks that currently reside on both players and their Pokémon, but Minior doesn't place an effect on either; it has an effect that is done and resolved during Step F.

    If Master Shuckle is interested in a Minior that can survive Cosmosplosion, he'll need to find an effect that blocks the effects of attacks made by your own Pokémon.

    *See page 20 of the Sun & Moon rulebook.

    They normally don't reveal all URs by the time the JP set releases, (the one that comes to mind is BKP Darkrai) so just wait like 3 days
