‘Sun & Moon Trainer Kit – Alolan Sandslash and Alolan Ninetales’ Announced!

We can exclusively reveal the next Sun & Moon Trainer Kit will feature Alolan Sandslash and Alolan Ninetales. It’ll hit store shelves in America and Europe on April 20th.

It is very likely the two cards will be brand new, as is usually the case with these Trainer Kits. No new Alolan Sandslash and Alolan Ninetales have been announced for Japan yet.

Like all Trainer Kits, the package will come with two 30-card decks, two how-to-play guides, a 2-player mat, damage counters, Special Condition markers, a coin (of one of the two Pokemon), an illustrated deck box, and a PTCGO code card.

A Trainer Kit is meant to teach new players how to play the game. It includes simple cards that are easy to understand and use.

    considering what we got in the Raichu and Lycanroc trainer kits, these are probably gonna suck(for competitive players at least).

    I get a very strange feeling that there will be 1 good card with these... Then again, maybe that's just hunger

    Interesting that both half's of the entire thing start out as Water type card Pokemon. Unless one will be printed as a Fire type or both will be duel type Water/Fire cards.

    Neither are part fire. I think it might be that Alolan Ninetales will be Fairy, because it's Ice/Fairy type.

    I think he meant the decks. I had to rethink that one a few times.

    I think that most probably the Sandslash line will be metal, and the ninetales one, fairy. (I not sure if any of them were already printed using their second tiping...)

    That would be nice. If they were decent, could be a deck, with all the metal support.

    Yup. I never waste money on those 30 card decks, because you can't even use it for competitive play. so pretty meh, i agree. also a pretty meh choice.

    This product will always suck for those who already know how to play.
