‘Mega Charizard X vs. Mega Blastoise Battle Arena Decks’ Announced!

The Kanto marketing for Let’s Go! Pikachu and Eevee is hitting the TCG yet again, and will surely continue with even more product announcements over the coming months!

The next Battle Arena Decks will release on September 21st and will feature M Charizard-EX and M Blastoise-EX!

The package will come with two 60-card decks, each featuring two foil copies of its EX card and a new alternate art foil Trainer card. The package will also come with two metallic coins featuring each Pokemon, two deck boxes, a playmat, two sets of damage counters, a player’s guide, and a rule sheet.

The identities of the two alternate art Trainers are currently unknown.

The last Battle Arena Decks were supposed to release in September 2017 and were going to feature Landorus-EX, Genesect-EX, and alternate art promos of Delinquent and Professor’s Letter. However, TPCi cancelled the release after realizing they saturated the market with too many products.

    Why keep making these if they're going to keep getting worse with each iteration?

    Please for everything learn a thing from the Black and White Kyurem and make this the price of the previous ones.

    Otherwise I'm kinda hopeful since they are taking another whack at it. This does have an advantage over the Kyurem one since these are the two popular Gen One mascots that will bring in more of a crowd of nostalgia. The EX choice isn't as strong for competitive players like with Darkrai and Keldeo in their respective ones but if there is a good pool of Standard and Expanded cards that would make it good for deckbuilding. Both could have ramp with Blacksmith and Water Patch alongside stadiums their deck would only benefit.

    Hopefully spicy reprints with Eggecute, Blend Energies and maybe the FireRed LeafGreen art for VS Seeker?

    These cards were bad then, and they're still going to be bad now.

    If it's the Dragon one not too much so plus nothing's better then smashing in for 300 damage. It better be one of them that deals 300 damage and not that Generations one. I don't want to coin flip for damage I just want to blow stuff up.

    Actually now I'm really hoping it's the Dragon one from Flashfire then we can have Double Dragon energy in that one.

    I would love for that to be the case! Would make the battles much more fair to state the obvious.

    Because, ladies and gentlemen, this is a company. They intend to make money on what we call a “target audience.” This was not intended for the competitive players we are. This was intended for the starting players, or the woefully misguided.

    Although, a type weakness in these battle decks is just plain stupid. Like, seriously.

    Hopefully this comes with some insane expanded cards to make up for the garbage ex cards.
