‘Burning Shadows’ Booster Packs, Theme Decks, Blisters, ETB!

 

We now have exclusive images of Burning Shadows‘s booster packs, theme decks, and Elite Trainer Box!

As expected, the booster packs feature Ho-Oh, Necrozma, Tapu Fini, and Marshadow. The theme decks feature a new Lycanroc that has not been released in Japan yet and Alolan Ninetales from SM3.

The set will be released in America on August 4th and will contain over 140 cards. It will mainly be comprised of the cards from Japan’s SM3 set, which is currently leaking (halp I need sleep!).

Update: Added the promo blister packs!

    I took his quote to mean that we're going to be emptying our pockets rather quickly with these Sun and Moon sets. I love them, but have spent quite a bit of money collecting them lol

    Yeah true that. I'm already worried about Charizard Hyper if I don't pull it haha.

    That's fair enough, the cards look absolutely amazing! But the sheer amount of Ultra Rares (/Full arts/Hyper Rares) makes them so difficult and more expensive to complete, especially since every Pokemon gets a Full Art and Hyper Rare variant now! And I'm not crazy about the art on most Full Arts and Hyper Rares.

    EDIT: Basically what @that_one_venasaur said :D

    Exactly, agreed then. They did go overboard with the ''search cards'' this gen. About 6 is ideal in my opinion. Sets in X & Y had to little.. The dosing seems to be a difficult thing at TPCI :p

    I wonder which full art supporters will be in the English set?

    If there are only 6, they're leaving 1 out.
    There were 3 in "Facing a New Trial" (Olivia, Sophocles, Acerola) and 4 in SM3 (Kiawe, Wicke, Guzma, Plumeria).

    Team Skull is highlighted in the set’s official description, so we’ll at least see Guzma and Plumeria as 2 of the 6.

    That's good. Guzma and Acerola (if included) are the two I'm looking forward to the most.

    I'm guessing they'd leave out either Sophocles (since he was originally in a separate set) or Wicke (if censored).

    Not sure if they'd leave out Wicke or not. Full Art Skyla was in BREAKpoint without getting censored. (fortunately)

    Will be Olivia, I think. Her FA is the only one that was a promo and not pulled from the sets.

  15. I really hope it's not Olivia that's getting left out but, I do admit, that it makes the most sense that it's her.

    I expect Tapu Bulu-GX and Lycanroc-GX (both Full Art) to be included in this set, in the same way that Rainbow evolved starters-GX were included in Guardians Rising (which was weird).

    I guess should be Wicke since SM4 will be more focus on Ultra Beast and Wicke is belong to Aether Foundation.

    Wow, just noticed that Necrozma GX, GX attack calls out EX Pokemon as well. Which would mean that rotation will NOT exclude XY sets. Seems safe to say rotation will be BKT on! Pretty good news IMO!

    Tapu-Fini-GX/Ninetales-GX anyone? Hydro Shot and Ice Blade hit for a combined 170 on ANY of your opponent's Pokemon. Not to mention Blizzard Edge and Hydro Shot can be spammed with Aqua Patch. Will be great to test :)
