First Official EX Pokemon Ad, Thundurus vs. Tornadus Gift Set

Broke my laptop again. :(

The official Pokemon Card website has posted its first official advertisement for Psycho Drive and Hail Blizzard, the third Black & White sets to be released in Japan on September 16th, though it does not mention them by name yet. The ad shows Mewtwo and “EX,” obviously referring to the fact that the sets will reintroduce Pokemon-EX (or at least their spiritual successors). The website says it will reveal more information about the ad in mid-August, though of course we already know it is an advertisement for BW3 and that Mewtwo EX and Kyurem EX will be in the sets (and that a Reshiram EX and Zekrom EX will be released in new Battle Strength Decks on October 21st). Click the thumbnail of the ad below to enlarge it.

In other news, a new “Thundurus vs. Tornadus Battle Gift Set” will be released in Japan on November 18th for 3,150 yen. It will contain two 30-card decks along with a deck box and the usual TCG accessories. Reshiram, Victini, Zekrom, Thundurus, and Tornadus will each appear in the gift set as rare holo cards. Landorus will also be featured in the set, but as a full art card! (His two comrades already appeared as full art cards, so now it’s his turn). Hopefully we’ll get an image of the gift set soon!
