August’s English Set: ‘HS – Undaunted’

The Rise of Darkrai, Giratina and the Sky Warrior, and Arceus and the Jewel of Life are airing on Cartoon Network right now as a Pokemon movie marathon.

The next English set will be named HS – Undaunted and is set for release on August 18th; you can view its press release below. There will be six Pokemon Prime, with Raichu, Umbreon, and Slowking named – all three were originally Japanese promos. Legend Box and Ruins of Alph are also mentioned from Revived Legends, so we’ll most likely be getting the majority of that set, which would be obvious anyways. Espeon Prime will most likely be included too, as it was paired with Umbreon originally and there are both an Espeon and Umbreon in Revived Legends. In total, our English set will have 90 cards. Since Rayquaza & Deoxys LEGEND is in the set, we know it will contain cards from the upcoming Japanese Clash at the Summit set, which has yet to be announced by the official Japanese TCG website. However, it will probably just be those two cards (and maybe a couple of others), since Revived Legends has more than enough cards to satisfy the 90 cards in our English set. Prereleases will take place on the weekends of the 7th and 14th (the 14th is Worlds, so there could be an additional prerelease on July 31st’s weekend, which has happened before).

As for the other two Pokemon Prime we could get, the only ones that have not been printed here yet are Houndoom and Scizor from Revived Legends; Magnezone, Gengar, Mew, and Absol from Lost Link; and of course Machamp, Celebi, Electrode, and Yanmega from Clash at the Summit. We’re obviously getting the rest of Revived Legends, so it will probably be Houndoom and Scizor. Then TPCi will probably use Lost Link for our November set (fitting, since it has ghosts that would go along with Halloween’s prereleases). For February’s set, they’ll most likely use the movie-related cards in Clash at the Summit and whatever scraps are left over from the LEGEND era to advertise the dub of The Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark. The next Japanese set in September or November will undoubtedly be the first Black and White set, which will then released here as May’s set. And there you have the English sets up until next May – yes, we can extrapolate all that based on the history of how TPCi has built our sets. :)
