‘Shining Legends Special Collection: Raichu-GX’ in January!

A new “Shining Legends Special Collection: Raichu-GX” will be released in America and Europe on January 5th!

It will come with a full art Raichu-GX foil promo card, a jumbo version of the same card, a foil Pikachu promo card, a Raichu coin, five Shining Legends booster packs, and a PTCGO code card.

This news means that along with Zoroark-GX’s full art, we won’t get Raichu-GX’s full art in our Shining Legends set. However, Raichu-GX’s rainbow rare will remain in our set.

Raichu-GX – Lightning – HP210
Stage 1 – Evolves from Pikachu

[C][C] Powerful Spark: 20+ damage. This attack does 20 more damage for each [L] Energy attached to all of your Pokemon in play.

[L][L][C] Thunder: 160 damage. This Pokemon does 30 damage to itself.

[L][L][C] Volt Tackle-GX: 120 damage. Your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Paralyzed. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack a game.)

When your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: Metal (-20)
Retreat: 1

    Pokémon keeps ripping chase cards from sets! First Charizard and Zoroark, then Shining Lugia and Celebi, now Raichu GX!

    I seriously hope they're just doing this for SHL because it's a special set. Removing all of the chase cards from sets and putting them in $40 boxes is ridiculous.

    These boxes are getting really out of control. TCPi really wants to suck everyone's wallet's dry this year.

    So when does Dunsparce get its own giant box that will take up space on store shelves for months to come? Every other Pokemon gets a box, apparently. And the bigger the box, the betterer. Clearly.

    Flip me is there just going to be rainbow rares in the set, only 2 left are Mewtwo and Entei? There is no other possible full arts to take their place sure there isn't we are up to date pretty much? This set looks like will be easiest to complete ever - done in 3-4 elite trainer purchases :)

    So how many 'special' boxes of this set are coming out? I've lost count, and interest.. Just give me the elite trainer box.

    My Walmart is starting to stop stocking certain products just because of how out of control this situation is. We get all these boxes and no one is buying them.

    TPCi really knows how to cannibalize their products. This is why promos exist! Leave these cards in their sets and MAKE A BOX PROMO. There are too many of these box products to keep up with and they ruin the completion of sets.

    I am straight pissed. If you're going to keep doing this, at least create an alternate art and leave the main set alone.

    How come you guys are complaining now? Last year there were nearly 20 boxes for Generations, now it’s only ~10

    I think the issue is more removing the cards from the set and putting them in the collections, instead of putting unique promos in the products, than the amount of products.
    If it'd had been up to me, I would've put the Rainbow Rare GX cards in the collections and left the regular FA's in the set, but only if I had to choose. I'd prefer alternate art on the promo cards for sure!

    Yeah, I agree with the majority here. I don't mind them releasing these boxes, because I think the benefit of them outweighs the negative, but completely removing the cards from the set is a bummer. Full art Zoroark and Raichu are two of the cards I wanted from Shining Legends and now they're both not in the set anymore so they can be used in these boxes. I think it's great that newer players have access to this stuff though.

    How is that bad; it lowers the value of the card and makes it easier for people to get?

    I'm personally happy all these awesome cards are becoming promos, just means they'll be easier/cheaper to get....I was very happy when zoroark GX was revealed to be a promo I have big plans for that card haha

    I dislike them pulling these cards from the sets from a consistency point. Some Pokemon-GX have all three variants in the set while others have either the standard art (Tapu Bulu), the full art (Raichu/Zoroark/Starters), or the rainbow art (Ho-oh) pulled for a separate product. I'm all for making these cards more accessible, but either have a separate promo or have the card still be in the set rather than cannibalizing the contents of a set.
