Massive ‘Premium Trainer’s XY Collection’ Releasing in November!

A new “Premium Trainer’s XY Collection” will be released in America and Europe on November 17th!

This collection is being touted as the largest Pokemon TCG product ever assembled!

Each collection will come with the 14 full art promo cards, including Shaymin-EX, Yveltal-EX, Aegislash-EX, Jirachi, and N. This means it will likely contain all the unreleased full art promo cards from Japan’s The Best of XY as well as the unreleased Japanese full art promo Jirachi.

Shaymin-EX and Yveltal-EX will feature special art treatment, so they’ll probably be the only textured cards in the product.

The collection will feature some premium goodies — a large kickstand-style box to hold everything, a metal Pikachu coin, two sets of 65 card sleeves featuring Xerneas and Yveltal, one double deck box of the two Pokemon, two sets of dice, two XY series booster packs, and a PTCGO code card.

The collection will retail for around $80 $100, so it’s meant to be a large Christmas present.

Now see, this is the only time we’ll ever get a chase card like Shaymin-EX… once it’s illegal for Standard play. :x Shaymin-EX and Yveltal-EX will be alternate art promos, which means they’ll retain the legality of their earlier prints. So come November when this product is released and Roaring Skies Shaymin-EX is no longer legal for Standard, both this Shaymin-EX and the earlier Roaring Skies prints will remain illegal.

    The way I read this is these cards will be right back into the standard rotation. I'm confused.

    My guess is they'll get the "A" Alternate symbol for alternate just like the Mega Lucario, Mega Manectric, Zygarde and Jolteon Ex did. So they won't be legal for standard. Well N will and team flare grunt.

    Shaymin-EX will be an alternate art promo, which means it’ll retain the legality of its original print that is no longer legal in Standard.

    This sounds fantastic and all until I read that it includes TWO packs? Why include any at all at that rate? As a collector only and not a player I'm thinking I may sit this one out unless I'm extremely wowed by the product images. I'm going to need at least 6-8 packs for an $80 dollar price tag, including all of the extras.

    I have no problem with the price tag if more packs are included.

    Some packs will be cool, but maybe they'll include an art book like the Mew and Mewtwo? Maybe some packs who knows. Can't wait for N.

    OHYAS dreams do come true! Lol
    I know the new art for Shaymin-EX and Yveltal-EX look epic, but I'm here for the new full art supporters, particularly Blacksmith, Karen, and Delinquent :)

    This is probably one of the best products I've seen Pokemon release in a while. I'm for sure gonna buy more than one of these. Can't wait for pictures of the product itself.

    I'd take the full art N. Maybe I'll have a shot at a fancy card like that. Nice.

    I'd be willing to buy 4 of these just for the N FAs alone. This is great

    Shaymin will be in Expanded by the time this product comes out, so the new Shaymin coming from this product will also be in Expanded.

    None of these cards change the legality for their original art prints. If they are out of rotation now, they will still be out of rotation when this box comes out. Alternate-art cards do not count as new reprints.

    Alternate art. Will not be legal. Sorry.

    It's a box. Get those N full-arts!

    Sad that only 2 will be textured. The textured really makes the cards like N pop.

    Every single Trainer card looks textured to me. I don't think you have anything to worry about. N definitely is.

    So every single card in the set will belong to it's respective number in the original sets. I hate the alternate art thing Pokemon is doing now. Either release it with the original sets or not at all. Sun and Moon has made the company greedier. "Here, have alternate arts", "here by the full-arts of cards that were in that one set in this $40 box."

    This is where the downfall begins, just make sure we remember this is where it began and where we were to see it.
