‘Forbidden Light’ Set Logo Revealed!

The English set logo for SM6 Forbidden Light has been revealed!

As posted before, the set will hit store shelves in America and Europe on May 4th. The Japanese version of the set is also named Forbidden Light and will release in Japan on March 2nd.

The English set will feature Ultra Necrozma-GX, Lucario-GX, Greninja-GX, Zygarde-GX, Yveltal-GX, Naganadel-GX, Volcanion, and Arceus Prism Star.

There will be over 130 cards, including 5 Prism Star cards, 8 Pokemon-GX, 6 Ultra Beasts, 15 Trainers, and two Special Energy.

The English set will thus be a combination of cards from Japan’s SM5+ Ultra Force set and the unreleased SM6 Forbidden Light set.

    Why the heck is there no Xerneas GX? It doesn't make sense to feature only one out of two or two out of three Pokémon and let the other get the shaft!

    There is a high chance there will be a Xerneas-GX: it says there will be 8 GXs in set and they only list 6.

    The name really goes well with necrozma's power and overall theme.

    The thing is, there's still the Metal-type Dialga GX and the Water-type Palkia GX, who could fit the last two spots

    Ooooooh! New Volcanion? Looks like a baby version too.

    Wonder how it will compare to the first set of Volcanions from STS

    Let's not forget. We're likely getting Unit energy DYF in this set Darkness=Yveltal GX, Fairy=Xerneas GX, Fighting=Zygarde GX :p

    From context looks to be a prism star

    Greninja GX will probably be Godly and potentially carry on the Water Ninja Shuriken bench damage theme.

    Zygarde GX will potentially get some synergy with Zygarde EX, maybe. Or it could be the card, Everyone thinks will be good, but will really be horrifically bad.

    Yveltal GX will probs be best card in set, because besides Metal, Dark type is the second most popular type in TCG I think. Might Have Darkrai EX's Dark Pulse reincarnate, cuz, all Yveltal's have been seen in Meta (except for the one from the battle deck)

    So yah.

    I also really hope there is Xerneas-GX in this set! I need some kick butt Fairy-types that aren't Gardevoir. I really hope Xerneas-GX makes it into the set and is strong without Gardevoir-GX. Something that I can play with Tapu Lele (Y). I would die of happiness.

    Also, a Unit Energy FDY would be amazing. Also, maybe Darkness and Fairy drives for Silvally-GX.

    Also, if Xerneas-GX is in this set, think we will get a non-descript Fairy stadium (like Fairy Garden) or get something like Tapu Village that is Fairy-supportive (and maybe get Fairy-type Tapu :rolleyes:)?

    That would be amazing and all... But I am praying for Fairy-type Tapu GX reprints (dang it Tapu Lele-GX for being so dang amazing!) which don't have weaknesses. I wouldn't mind a Fairy Garden reprint. That was a good Stadium in my opinion and it worked well!

    I doubt they would cram those into the set since it the main focus is on XY, I would expect them to be put into $30-$40 boxes.

    New Yveltal, huh? We'll see if this one will carry over the dominance the old XY one had.

    It's TPCi acknowledging that Fairy is a legitimately dead type, at least in Japan.

    I almost wish they named this set Fiery Lugia. It would have the same abbreviation, so why not. All the cards would be versions of Lugia with fire type. (I’m being sarcastic.)

    I’d like the idea of a Xerneas GX, but keep in mind this is TPCi we are talking about. We got 2 gardevoir EX’s, 2 Mega Gardevoirs, and a Gardevoir GX, but no: Mega Sableye, or Mega Baynette. Also, we got a Registeel and Regirock EX, but no regice, and an Entai and Raikou EX (and soon GX) but no suicune. So sadly, i doubt that there will be a Xerneas, Chesnaut or Delphox GX, but id love to be wrong.

    The name defiantly fits with Ultra Necrozma be the showcase for the set. Still stinks that this set will come out on as scheduled and yet Solgaleo/Lunala Gx boxes won't be.
