Today’s update involves a lot of partial information regarding both the “Great Encounters” and “DP5: Temple of Anger, Cry from the Mysterious” sets!
Partial Great Encounters List, Partial Info – We now have our first Great Encounters prerelease information!
The card sleeves that players will receive at the prereleases will feature Darkrai, and will be on a black background like with the Weavile sleeves for Secret Wonders. The sleeve design is almost exactly the same – the only difference is the set logo and the Pokemon silhouette.
We also have a “partial” set list. Unfortunately, as many people deduced from the information we already knew about the English set, Phione, Mewtwo, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Eevee, the Eeveelutions, and fossil Pokemon did not make it into the set. Claydol’s status is not known yet, but we should find out soon! As we predicted here, there will be a Diamond and Pearl filler set to fill the gap created by the Japanese DP5 delay, so the aforementioned cards will most likely be in the next American set (it will probably be named “Great Filler” or “Unseen Wonders”).

Remember, we will have early scans of Great Encounters as early as Monday (not likely) and at the latest on Friday (either way, before the prereleases)! We should also have more information about the set between now and then!
Partial Mewtwo Lv.X and Gliscor Lv.X Translations – Following our exclusive coverage of [DP5: Temple of Anger, Cry from the Mysterious], we now have partial translations of Mewtwo Lv.X and Gliscor Lv.X! Thanks go to Bangiras for translating the text! From what we can tell, Gliscor Lv.X will have one additional attack, and the same may apply to Mewtwo Lv.X.
