“Pulse of the Frontier” Scans, Translations, Information
Update (5:00 PM): Translations added. Read the second-to-last paragraph for the link to them. Please do not post these translations on any other website; instead, please link to the page itself. Thank you!
We have received early Pulse of the Frontier scans from our usual Japanese scan source, Toho. With the scans comes information, of course!
The “classic reprints” in the set are Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. They are the Wizards of the Coast Pokemon 2000 movie promos, but with their original Japanese artwork (WotC changed the artwork of the cards when they were released in America). They were originally given out on ANA Airlines in 1999 in Japan. Other notable reprints include Buffer Piece and VS Seeker.
As we reported several months ago, the three shiny Pokemon cards are Yanma, Milotic, and Relicanth.
All of the Frontier Brains except Palmer have a LV.X card, which means his LV.X will probably debut in the set’s blister pack if there is one. Last set it was Mismagius GL LV.X for Fantina, this set it may be Dragonite FB LV.X or Regigigas FB LV.X for Palmer. We’ll see!
Other than Yanma, Murkrow, and Skarmory (the first two have Diamond and Pearl evolutions), there is a complete lack of Gold and Silver Pokemon in the set. Could Pokemon Card Laboratory be saving the Johto Pokemon for an upcoming set? Is this yet another hint of a Gold and Silver remake?
We have all of the scans below. The scans up until Zapdos are from the main set. The cards that come from Cynthia’s theme deck follow Zapdos, and Cyrus’ cards follow the SP Energy in Cynthia’s deck. Click the thumbnails for larger scans. Some of the Trainer cards are duplicated because they appear in the theme decks and in the main set.
Thanks to Bangiras, who spent several hours translating the cards, we now have all translations for Pulse of the Frontier and its theme decks! Thanks for all the hard work, Bangiras! Thanks also goes to Jason for HTMLizing the card translations for me. Please do not post these translations on any other website; instead, link to the page. Thank you!
