Chandelure from ‘Red Collection’

Sorry for the lack of updates – college is wrapping up, which means lots of final projects, and there hasn’t been that much Pokemon news lately.

Chandelure from Red Collection, the second Black & White set, has been revealed! It is #036/066, an uncommon, and the first card revealed from the set to have an Ability. Since Japanese Black & White booster packs only have five cards now (to lower their price so that little kids can afford them), the amount of rares in each set has greatly decreased, which is why a Stage 2 Pokemon can now be an uncommon when it would typically be a rare or rare holo. Remember, Red Collection will be released in Japan on July 15th and will bring the remaining officially revealed fifth generation Pokemon to the TCG!
