Japan’s SM3+ Set: ‘Shining Legends!’

Oh boy, here we go!

Japan’s SM3+ set will be named Shining Legends and will be released on July 15th! As you can tell by the set’s booster pack, it’ll feature a shiny Mew-GX, Mewtwo (GX?), and Pikachu.

The set will feature 72 cards (excluding secret rares). Each booster pack will come with six cards, with one of the cards being a holo. So it seems this set won’t be like SM1+ where all of the cards are reverse holo. The whole set might not even be reprints judging by this pack configuration.

Since this set is being released on the exact same day as the 20th Pokemon movie, which as we know is retelling Ash’s adventures in Kanto, we can assume this set will mainly feature Kanto Pokemon. “Legends” helps to reiterate that assumption since Gen I is legendary to the franchise.

Also releasing on July 15th is a Rotom binder that can hold 104 cards. It’ll retail for 477 yen, or about $5.

Too bad we never got that Shining Mew CoroCoro promo here in the United States, but at least we’ll get a similar one in the coming months!

    With the Necrozma on SM3, only the Ultrabeasts don't have cards yet. Maybe we will get DPPt remakes soon or another thing to next sets be based of?

    Edit: Miss Type: Null and Silvally.

    Man, so many SM#+ sets. Getting a little crazy to be honest - as is the number of Mew & Mewtwo as of late. I mean seriously, it's gotten kinda ridiculous.

    At least the Mew is shiny this time, I suppose. :p

    I really hope Mewtwo GX, if there will be one, has an attack called "GX Ball" or "X Ball GX" or something stupid like that.


    I mean, to be honest, it'd be kind of funny to see them just make X Ball Mewtwo on steroids even though Mewtwo is as overdone as he is.

    Set only matters if Abra, Kadabra and Alakazam make this set. The only Aloan region pokémon and psychic types that seem to be woefully left out... Shining Mew translated in English would always be a happy dream come true.

    Uri Geller is the only reason why Kadabra has never been printed again

    I LOVE this set, but it BETTER not be as terrible as SM1+ (same hope for SM2+).

    However this set reminds me more of a CP set then a + set (as noted by how it isn't called strength expansion pack


    you do realize they won that lawsuit right?

    Although the lawsuit against Geller was won, TPC decided against making any more Kadabra cards as both an act of good faith and to avoid negative publicity.

    I might be missing something, but how do we know the Mew will be a GX?

    Nintendo likes to take a 'Better safe than sorry' approach when it comes to Pokemon. Same reason why Porygon hasn't appeared in the anime since Computer Warrior/ Electric Solider Porygon. In fact I think there was one set where Abra evolved straight into Alakazam.

    Oh my goodness, mew is great on its own, but shiny and a GX? That's gonna be awesome!

    DP: Mysterious Treasures. It had Ultra Evolution which made you search your deck for an Alakazam and put it on top of Abra.
    Last Abra card ever since Alakazam was able to be printed as a base Pokemon in subsequent sets
