Japan’s SM6a Set ‘Dragon Storm,’ Plus ‘Champion Road’ Mini-Set!

Japan’s SM6a set will be named Dragon Storm and will hit store shelves on April 6th!

The set will contain 53 cards, excluding any secret rares. Although the text on the booster pack is hard to read, it appears the set will focus on Fire, Water, and Dragon-type Pokemon judging by their symbols on the bottom of the booster pack. The booster pack image appears to be final and shows Dragonite, Drampa, and White Kyurem will be featured in the set.

The set appears to have a set code of “6a” rather than “6+,” which may mean it’s a regular mini-set rather than featuring a bunch of reprints like other SM+ sets. The set also won’t feature every card as a reverse holo like SM+ sets, which may be another clue that it will feature new cards. (They print the SM+ sets as reverse holos to make them more “unique,” as in, to give people a reason to buy them. Which isn’t necessary if a set features new cards.)

But that’s not it for new sets! On May 3rd, Japan will also get a Champion Road mini-set. Nothing is known about this set other than it will contain 66 cards and include Blaziken, Feraligatr, and Scizor cards.

As posted a few weeks ago, Japan’s SM6 set is named Forbidden Light and will be released on March 2nd. It will feature Zygarde.

    Basically like Rainbow, but only for dragons, no damage counter, and a Basic energy. (I think)

    Then it would be special energy by default. Basic energy requires no text.

    Lord help us.
    Probably, unfortunately for the people that think that the one pseudo-legendary ever to not get an ultra rare of itself finally has a chance to be an ultra rare.
    Pokémon, by Goomy, at least include regular Goodra.

    But any energy that has an effect other than providing a colored energy is special, therefore a [N] energy that acts as a rainbow energy would be special

    A dragon Drampa GX? Hopefully we will finally get a Dragonite GX and both Kyurem forms. Or maybe the Kyurems will be Prism stars if that is a thing in future sets and not just a one of four like Shining Pokemon.
