‘Forbidden Light’ 3-Pack Blister!

Boy these Forbidden Light products are sure trickling in slowly…

We now have the first image of the Forbidden Light three pack blister, which will feature a reprint of Garbodor from Guardians Rising. It will be an “alternate” art promo like the blister pack promos from Ultra Prism. This means its tournament legality is tied to the original print.

In Japan this print of Garbodor was given out to those who purchased a booster box of SM4+ GX Battle Boost, which was released last October.

Forbidden Light will hit store shelves in America and Europe on May 4th. We should receive the rest of the blister pack images soon!

High definition wallpapers of Alolan Exeggutor and Lycanroc from Forbidden Light‘s theme decks were also released today:

    I wonder how many people will buy this just for the Garbodor?

    Blister packs, alt. print or no, make pokemon easier to obtain than via a pack pull...

    ^ Now Trashalanche Garbodor's low(but competitive for 'Toxin decks) value could fall to that of a normal holo... Perfect timing, I guess: Garbotoxin is expected to rotate later this year when SUM-On becomes the new Standard, or so the fan masses say...

    Don't panic...

    It's an alternate stamp print, meaning its rotation clock is not renewed...

    If you want it out, keep your eyes peeled on the next five(or in the case of 'Toxin, one set, as the next and penultimate expansion before the next rotation hits, Forbidden Light, is already released in Japan w/ zero sign of 'Toxin) expansions for a true reprint of that card, and if it's not present within those sets, then you may celebrate its departure from Standard. Due to the fact that a reprint of a niche is more likely to be reprinted in a five-set span compared to a one-set span, right now, it has a high chance of getting reprinted w/o the A stamp, but you never know until the evidence is revealed: The future is too unpredictable for us to know for sure until near-release time for the set in question is reached... Hence, keep eyes peeled, and hope for your desired outcome!

    I saw a European card selling website that had it listed for 4/27, but how reliable that is, no clue since I haven't seen a date anywhere else except that it was delayed to 2018. Here's the link:
    https://www.pokebeach.net/pokemon-tapu-lele-pin-collection-box
    Go to the middle "more information" tab down below the product image and first thing it lists is 27 Apr 2018. Like I said before though, no way to confirm it so take it with a grain of salt since it may just be a place marker.

    Wait. What if they put the missing promo nos, SM61 and SM92? Rather than some A Card stuff?
