‘Shining Legends Special Collection: Zoroark-GX’ Product Image!

We now have the product image for the upcoming “Shining Legends Special Collection: Zoroark-GX,” which will be released in America and Europe on November 3rd!

As posted before, 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.

It seems the box designs have changed with this product, with the jumbo moving to the left side of the box all by itself to better highlight the card.

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.

Zorua was released as a Gym tournament promo in Japan from August to September. It’s a reprint from Shining Legends, but with new artwork.

    "trade", That's a mediocre name for an ability, Exchange at least sounds kinda cool, but "trade" is so bland, I don't like that. Other than that It's obviously a good card so this product is surely sought after.

    This is interesting box design, like the full view of jumbo card - but again a needlessly HUGE box which I think detracts from overall design - the layout and design in the Aloan Raichu I think is much better doing down a more compact route. I would love the jumbo boxes to actually be as compact as Japan - looks so much neater and would maximise shelf space ( and postage costs!) for majority of TCG stores. This size of box is OK for toys r us etc but all my local independents have no choice but to display them on floor in stacks!

    I'm pretty sure it's a reference to Yu-Gi-Oh!'s card "Trade In" which in fact does pretty much the same thing: Discard a specific card; draw 2 Cards.

    Doubt it.

    They both reference the concept of trading cards in your hand for more cards, but saying that either is a reference is unlikely.

    Is this $30 if so, this is an amazing deal, glad they're also doing it for Raichu ;) (you need to cover that WPM)


    Also, called that this would be the promo zorua....I''m sad now the other one looks so much better, and would have looked way better as a holo

    Well then, I guess Zoroark GX isn't going to be $30-$50 upon release. I'm actually pretty happy about this :)

    So the product has no mat? Well, that sucks. It needed a mat too.

    Can someone remind me of the strategy for Zoroark-GX? It's attack does 120 damage now that sky field has rotated with a full bench if the Zoroark-GX attacker counts as a Pokémon in play. I recognize the ability, but I was wondering about ways to maximize the attack. Thanks!

    This card is mediocre at best without sky field, 100 damage, 130 with a choice band for a dce is meh, 2 turn knockout isn't good in this format, hp is a slight savior. Weakness to fighting isn't terrible in this format, Sivally GX with potientially all type memory drives could be an issue, fighting maybe being one of them, if not already.

    Edit: Nvm, Sivally GX does have a fighting drive, this card is hosed on that matchup.

    Darkrai GX/zoroark may have its own tier 2/3 deck

    I'm getting mighty sick of them removing things from this set in order to make boxes with jacked up prices.

    He will be a staple when octilery gets rotated. That ability plus mallow supporter will be undercooked until everyone is doing it

    Yeah it'll have a bad matchup against what it's weak to, but to say this card is mediocre at best is just plain wrong.... Zoroark GX will literally see tons of play just for the amazingly consistent draw support it brings...add in a cheap attack that can 2 shot anything in a 2 shot heavy format with 210 HP. Without VS seeker Pokémon with draw support are huge and this is the best draw support ability out right now you're sleeping on this card big time

    True about the draw support, I didn't say there was anything wrong with that, 2 shot format, really? What do you call Garde? 3 shot? 2 shot? More often than not, one shots are seen, but take that with a grain of salt.
