“Platinum” Booster Pack Images and Set Logo

Pokemon TCG: Platinum logo

As we reported earlier this month, the next English TCG set will be named Platinum. The booster pack images and set symbol of the set have been released, which you can view below (click the thumbnails for larger images). The set description is further down as well.

I’m willing to bet the fourth Platinum booster pack will feature Shaymin. Also, all subsequent sets released will probably use “Platinum” as a prefix to the set name, similar to “Diamond and Pearl: Mysterious Treasures” but with “Platinum: INVALID SET SHORTCODE” instead.

This set will most likely comprise of cards from Galactic’s Conquest and the movie-related cards we did not receive from Intense Fight in the Destroyed Sky. The set description mentions this set will have 130 cards, which is quite large, in addition to the SP-Pokemon of Galactic’s Conquest.
