Next Japanese Set: ‘Revived Legends’

The next Japanese set will be called Revived Legends and will be released in Japan on February 11th. This is the second time in the TCG’s history that there will be a large gap between sets, as LEGEND: HeartGold & SoulSilver was released back at the beginning of October and this set will be released four months later. However, the gap is likely caused by the recent release of the Battle Starter Decks and Expert Deck Leafeon vs. Metagross package.

Thanks to Kareda, our Japanese contact, we have some exclusive information about this second LEGEND set. The Legendary Pokemon cards will be “Entei & Raikou LEGEND,” “Suicune & Entei LEGEND,” and “Raikou & Suicune LEGEND.” Instead of two halves of one Pokemon making one Legendary Pokemon card like the last set, this time a Legendary Pokemon card is created from two different Pokemon. Pokemon Prime included in the set are Tyranitar, Steelix, Kingdra, and Lanturn. The first HGSS set did not have any Darkness or Metal types, so this set will introduce them to the LEGEND era.

Revived Legends will feature two 60-card decks named Standard Deck Steelix (Steel) and Standard Deck Tyranitar (Darkness). The Steelix deck will feature a holo Steelix, Scizor (Prime), Scyther, and Pinsir. The Tyranitar deck will contain a holo Tyranitar, Houndoom (Prime), Hitmonlee, and Hitmonchan. Each deck will cost 1500 yen, or about 15 dollars.
