‘HeartGold & SoulSilver’ Set List, Scans Coming Later Tonight
Update (9:30 PM): I have to go out to eat with my club since I’m an officer, but here’s what I’ve done so far. I’ll finish the rest over dinner then upload them when I come back in 3-4 hours (yes, we eat out late every Thursday night, which is why I’m always in such a rush to get back for the Japanese TCG set news!).
I will be posting our HeartGold & SoulSilver scans later tonight, so be sure to check back! Right now I have put up the set list, which you should check out if you want to see a listing of the set’s contents! Right now I’m actually in a club meeting which will last for a couple of hours, but when I’m done I’ll be able to edit the scans. Check out this forum thread for my progress later tonight and register while you’re at it!
Now for some information. Pokemon cut from the English release include the Beedrill, Crobat, Fearow, Octillery, Poliwrath / Politoed, Primeape, Ursaring, and Xatu evolutionary lines, while removed Basic Pokemon unrelated to any of the set’s evolutionary lines include Aipom, Stantler, and Tauros. No Trainers or Energy were cut, all remaining from the original Japanese LEGEND: HeartGold & SoulSilver Collection set. Gyarados (the Red Gyarados, specifically) is the set’s secret rare and was originally a Japanese promo.
As stated multiple times before, the cut cards, random HGSS promos, and the recently released Battle Starter Decks and Expert Deck Leafeon vs. Metagross package will likely compose our second HGSS set, which will be released in May. Then, Revived Legends, the next Japanese set, will be our third HGSS set in August.
In the original Japanese HGSS set, basic “Trainer” cards were renamed to “Goods,” which is the Japanese Pokemon term for “Items.” This was probably to clear up past confusion caused by calling all non-Pokemon and Energy cards “Trainer Cards” while also having basic “Trainer” cards in existence. However, TPCi has decided to keep them called “Trainers” instead of renaming them as “Items.”
Again, scans will be posted later tonight!
