‘Shining Legends Special Collection: Zoroark-GX’ in November!

A new “Shining Legends Special Collection: Zoroark-GX” will be released in America and Europe on November 3rd!

It’ll come with a full art Zoroark-GX promo, a jumbo version, a foil Zorua promo, five Shining Legends booster packs, a Zoroark coin, and a PTCGO card.

The full art Zoroark-GX will be removed from our Shining Legends set and placed exclusively in this product while the rainbow rare will remain in the set. This just happened with the full art Charizard-GX and rainbow rare Ho-Oh-GX from Burning Shadows, both of whom will be released in their own products in the coming months. I wonder if this will become a trend from now on, especially with all the Pokemon-GX Japan releases?

In other news, the Shining Legends Premium Powers Collection featuring the rainbow rare Ho-Oh-GX will also be released in Europe. In case there was any doubt that only America was getting it!

    I don't actually mind this (mainly because I love the Zorua and getting a holo version of it is AWESOME)

    I like this new trend of box sets that are coming out, mostly because the promo GXs are now full arts, and it makes the box worth buying, and then you also have whatever you get from the booster packs, it's a good idea!

    Yes! Now I'm guaranteed a couple Zoroark GX for the deck I want to make! And it's around my Birthday, so I might get them without having to buy them myself!

    So now they take cards out from the main set and require you to buy boxes? Yeah, what a deal. /s

    Welp, looks like I'll be getting a couple of these guys. Zoroark GX is too good to pass up.

    To be fair though it does make it easier to get

    How much did the previous GX boxes go for? I believe they came with six packs, so maybe we can expect this to be slightly cheaper?

    guess it makes it easier to get some of the big gx cards as long as the boxes aren't too crazy expensive.

    also while they take them out of the set they are still technically in it as they are likely to get that new alternate art set numbering for promos

    With 6 boosters, jumbo and coin could be in for some new packaging instead of the rinse and repeat we get in Europe (instead of figure collections it's jumbo and 4 boosters only) so interested how how presentation will be, would be great to get some much sleeker packaging like many Japanese sets instead of the suitcase sized cardboard boxes you nearly need someone to help you to the car with lol

    I'm usually not one to comment on art, but that Zorua is sooooooooo cute! Also, since it's a promo, and I play with max rarity(Rainbow Rares are ugly), this means I can get what normally would be an expensive card that will see competitive play for cheap. I don't know why others are complaining, but I'm happy about this.

    Hey to be fair the pay to win model I can live with, especially with resellers you can get the Promos for a few dollars or pounds (eg I imported sm37, 38,39 to UK for under £20, compared to the £45 each shelf price of the premium collections - and as cool as a jumbo is and a couple of alternatives Holos are that's some saving!)

    Ultimately thou if it becomes standard practice it will damage their model as will be much cheaper than buying endless boosters just in the hope that your gonna pull the charizard or Ho-oh etc - but I'm sure Pokemon will realise this before long!

    Or instead of wasting money on the box you could just buy singles of what you need online like a reasonable person.

    Can people not complain? In yugioh they made a structure deck into a full set... at least it makes it more accessible. I'm assuming that they are going to print FA and HR copies in sm4 like they did with lycanrock and stuff. Just buy singles anyways

    Seems like a solid pokemon and a solid marketing set. I think that we might even see a bright future where we simply have half competitive decks being sold straight in the box. This Zoroark seems to be made with Darkrai GX in mind and frankly speaking I really like that straight forward type of design.
    Will not pick this up because I don't intend to play Darkness decks anytime soon but it's a cool product for sure.

    You're right in that it is cheaper to buy it from resellers if you just want the card. I'll probably be doing that :).

    So glad I only collect on TCGO, trying to make a dent in Shining Legends is going to be murder but less bankrupting than physicals. I also have a weakness for collecting the coins too so I can forgive these boxes if they come with unique coins.
