February’s English Set: ‘Ultra Prism,’ New Mechanic and Five Ultra Beasts!

The name of the next English set is Ultra Prism! It will be released in America and Europe on February 2nd.

The set will introduce a brand new mechanic called Prism Star cards. Six of these Prism Star cards will be made for the set. No further information is known about them.

“Prism” is often a type of holo rare in other card games, so it wouldn’t surprise me if this new mechanic is also a new type of rarity. We’ve had prism-esque holos before (like Starmie BREAK) and “star” cards before (like Mudkip ☆). “Prism” almost certainly refers to Necrozma, the Prism Pokemon, so its two forms will likely get Prism Star cards.

There will be ten Pokemon-GX in the set, five of which are Ultra Beasts. All of the Sun and Moon Ultra Beasts have been released in the English and Japanese TCG, so unless two of them get new cards, this means there could be two more Ultra Beasts in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon aside from UB Burst, UB Adhesive, and UB Assembly (unless the two Necrozma forms somehow count as Ultra Beasts).

Over 150 cards will be featured in the set, as it will be a combination of the cards from Japan’s December SM5 set in addition to the exclusive cards from this week’s SM4+ set. The set will have 18 Trainer cards and three special Energy cards. Despite being marked as “Ultra Beasts” on their cards, no Trainer cards or anything else in the game targets Ultra Beasts yet, so we’ll probably get some cards that support them.

Like Japan’s upcoming SM5 set, the set’s mascots are Dawn Wings Necrozma and Dusk Mane Necrozma. Each will get their own Elite Trainer Box.

    I feel like it was headed this way, but I guess this confirms we're not getting new Mega Evolutions in USUM. I'll stay hopeful for the next games :)

    I feel that if it's a stinking prism, Solgaleo and Lunala and Necrozma and their fusions will be first in line.
    I also feel that there isn't going to be a prism Goomy, Goodra, or Goodra GX.

    My guess is that it will be 3d holos, or one of those that changes depending on which angle you are looking at the card from, so they appear to move.

    Yes! More support for the Ultra Beasts! Can't wait to see what those Prism Star cards look like! Maybe more Shining Pokemon, perhaps?

    That's a pretty viable theory. The cards would likely have to be thick to do that though, so weighing for something like that would pretty easy

    It is a sin that Goodra has no EX or GX cards yet, and has probably passed the point where it will ever get one. Preposterous!

    As for me, I am really hoping for a Dusk Form Lycanroc GX Prism card : )

    The ultra beasts will probably be the full arts from gx battle boost and two of the new ones

    I feel like the 10 GXs are 5 new UBs, Solgaleo, Lunala, Dusk Lycanroc, Dawn Wings Necrozma, and Dusk Mane Necrozma
    Those will be in the set, but don’t count to the 10 due to there being no RA, look at GRI’s RR exclusive GXs, they didn’t count

    I'm pretty sure that the Necrozma forms are ultra beasts. Why wouldn't they if the game is called ultra sun and ultra moon?
