‘GX Ultra Shiny,’ Japan’s Massive November Set!

GX Ultra Shiny will be a new Sun & Moon set releasing in Japan on November 2nd!

The set will feature a whopping 150 cards! Unlike normal Japanese sets, each booster pack will come with 10 cards — of which four will be holo! One of the four will be guaranteed to be a Pokemon-GX.

The packs will cost 500 yen, which is more than usual due to the increased pack size and guaranteed holos. This is also why the set is named “Ultra Shiny,” since it will include a lot of shiny foil cards.

The set will likely feature many Pokemon-GX reprints from the Sun & Moon era. If the pack art is anything to go by, it could include reprints of Buzzwole-GX, Zygarde-GX, and Zoroark-GX. Though they could also be normal Pokemon in the set.

Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translations!

    Would love to see a shiny reprint of Zoroark-GX. Big fan of it's shiny. Not so much Buzzwole since I find it's shiny to be pretty ugly.

    Japan uses the term “different color” as the name for shinies. English is the only language to use the term shiny, meaning these will not actually be shiny.

    This is getting confusing. I love this whole GX in every pack yearly thing, but it never comes to anyone else. We get tons of promo boxes. We still are missing Palossand GX, Alolan Raticate GX, and the non shiny 50% Zygarde GX. We can assume that Fairy Rise and Thunderclap Spark will be combined with our winter set and we are getting the Dragon mini-set, so how will we get all this and that Dark set? There is a lot of catch up for us right now.

    I think it's safer to presume that Thunderclap Spark and Explosive impact (SM8) will be what makes up our November set, and Fairy rise will come separately, much like dragon storm. Dark Order would come in a similar fashion, presumably, as well.

    I do wonder if the Raikou, Entei, Tornadus and Thundurus GX cards are from this, or if they'll be released as promo cards at some point in the future..?
