    Hopefully Lycanroc is in the set, I'm still playing through the game and he's absolutely my favorite. This is actually the first time ever I've wished they would opt for the Japanese pack art for the English tcg.

    Not really a fan of how quickly pokemon TCG is spitting out new expansions but it definitely looks cool

    Well we know Lycanroc midnight is defo in the Alola Moonlight set since it's on the pack art.
    Also there have been cases where the Japanese pack art has been used for the English tcg. (Primal Clash and Roaring Skies are two such examples)

    Really cool, I assume the 1st set is all about solgaleo/lunala and starters as far as Ultra's go, so no tapu's or ultra beast in 1st set is a given. Love that pack art though, tapu looks insanely good.

    Jangmo-o is on the pack art. Hoping his stage 2 is worth playing

    I wish all Tapus will be in the set. + the sign of Lyc in the set will be nice. The feat. Cards in the pack arts are Honchcrow and Tirtouga if I am not mistaken.

    Where do you see Tirtouga? The featured Pokémon I see are Honchcrow, Taillow, Jangmo-o and Mimikyu.
    Either way, I hope the Taillow and Honchkrow, mean that we're getting holo or GX versions of those cards. I would live for a Honchkrow GX :D

    Yup and prereleases are April 22nd-30th. Course, I probably posted that in four places so far since I learned it. But dang it, people have to know. Xo I really want that secret grass energy, it better be in this set. Go well with my Lurantis GX. You know what else would go good with it? A secret rare Ultra ball. qwq Aaaaand I just hurt my heart but it's okay, I got cookies.

    Hopefully Guardians Rising will be just as good as S&M Base in terms of playability and ultra rare count.

    For once we get a decent english name :D I really want a Mimikyu GX in this set, I mean imagine an Prism foil Mimikyu GX 0_O. It looks like SR energy in this set will be {G}, DCE, {L}, and {F} or maybe we'll get {Y} instead of {L}

    Might be, might be, but the base set is the real investment if you get that Ultra Ball...possibly...depending on how many come out <w< >w> And considering my prerelease had none...Yes, good stuff.
