Only Jirachi, Malamar, Ralts, Tyrantrum-EX, and Heavy Boots are new cards. The rest are reprints from recent sets with new artwork.

Malamar’s Ancient Trait is the first to feature the Greek letter theta.

Ralts is likely foreshadowing the Fairy-type Ralts we’re getting in Bandit Ring.

Some of these cards will probably be included in future sets or released as promos in America. They have all been included on our Unreleased XY-P Promos page so you can find them in the future.

Thanks goes to Sean T. for the translations!
