New ‘Battle Arena Deck: Black Kyurem vs. White Kyurem’ in June!

A new “Battle Arena Deck” featuring Black Kyurem-EX and White Kyurem-EX will be released in the U.S. and Europe on June 16th! It will retail for $39.99.

The package will come with two 60 card decks, each featuring 11 foil cards. Each deck will come with two foil copies of the titular Pokemon-EX, eight foil basic Energy cards (four copies of two types), and tournament-level Trainer cards like Lysandre, N, and VS Seeker

What’s more is that both decks will feature Professor Sycamore and Trainers’ Mail with brand new artwork! They will likely be foil since the information above only accounts for 10 of the 11 foil cards. There are no new cards for the two in Japan yet, so it seems they will get new artwork in The Best of XY set, which is being released in Japan on April 19th. Most of the exclusive cards from that set are being delegated to English promo products over the coming months.

The package will also come with two metallic coins featuring the titular Pokemon, two sets of damage counters, two deck boxes, a 2-player playmat and rulesheet, a PTCGO code card, and a guide for using the decks.

    Since we're getting Boundaries Crossed EXs so close to rotation this must mean Expanded won't rotate this year either (woot)

    A-a-are you sure? N-n-new artworks for Syca and Trainers' Mail? #LifeIsComplete
    Still worry for the VS Seeker reprint :(
    Which Kyurems are they using, Plasma Storm one?

    Since Trainers' Mail is getting new artwork, does that mean it'll not rotate this season?

    Either way, I'm absolutely getting one of these. Ever since I got the Rayquaza v Keldeo Battle Arena Decks, I've been super excited for the next one, and with new artwork for both Trainers' Mail and Sycamore, there is no way I'm disappointed!

    I am hopin the new cards with artwork will count as sun and moon promos or something in the sun and moon era.

    ...Nooooooooooooooooo... We're stuck with Trainer's Mail and Sycamore for ANOTHER 2 years? What the hell Pokemon, this is a terrible move. New art or not, we should not get those cards here.

    Who knows, maybe they could do a first and make the alternate arts share their sets with the original prints. It's not going to happen, but I can cling onto delusions, right?

    This kinda ruins the much slower format Sun/Moon looked like it was attempting to establish... Urgh. In before we get an alternate art Shaymin-EX in a tin or something...

    You know, I'm OK with VS Seeker rotating. I think it's time we move on so that the metagame can change more.

    Sycamore won't rotate until the 2018 rotation anyway, so its not like Sycamore was going to be gone before you know it.

    As for Trainers' Mail, I think its great that this card will stay in Standard. Once VS Seeker is no longer in Standard, we'll need more ways to access draw support.

    They probably will be, but I doubt they'd rotate with EVO

    Why on earth wouldn't all XY promos rotate out with the last XY set?

    Because a lot have released after SM came out (M Shaprdeo and Camerupt, Jolteon FA, M Lucario FA, Etc.

    I get the opposite intent from this; these cards are releasing as XY: Black Star Promos specifically so that they can rotate along with the rest of the XY-releases, instead of sticking around longer by being Sun & Moon products.

    Meh either way we still get TM for an extra year
    Also, I think they did that so we don't have EXs in the SM series
