Japan’s XY9 Set: ‘Rage of the Broken Sky,’ New ‘Battle Strengthening Sets’

Rage Of The Broken Sky XY9Mega Gyarados Deck Box Sleeves

Japan’s next XY set will be named Rage of the Broken Sky and will be released in Japan on December 11th! It’ll contain 80 cards, excluding secret rares. This will be the ninth XY set and the second set of the XY: BREAK block.

A shiny Mega Gyarados deck box will also be released on the same day along with a 32-pack of shiny Mega Gyarados card sleeves. Each will cost 362 yen, or about $3.

XY Break Battle Strengthening Set

Two weeks later on December 26th, Japan will also be getting three “Battle Strengthening Sets.” Each mini-set is a pack of 16 predetermined  cards. One of them will feature Leafeon and Grass / Fighting Pokemon, the second will feature Jolteon and Lightning / Fire Pokemon, and the third will feature Vaporeon and Water / Psychic Pokemon. Each pack will also come with an EX, which will potentially be the pack’s featured Eeveelution. They will each cost 650 yen, or between $5 and $6.

Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translations!

    See, as I suspected, this is why XY8 doesn't have the special Water energy despite having a Water Mega... I thought they would focus on something like Mega Gyarados which is really popular... Just never thought they would go for the shiny... at least, i'm positive that even though Gyarados changes type when Mega evolving, they will make it a Water-type Mega, not Dark-type... Sharpedo is more likely to be the one who will get a Dark-type Mega over a Water-type one...

    Is it just me or do the placeholders for the Eeveelutions look like Ancient Traits?

    Oh come on! XY8 didn't even release in Japan yet, and they're announcing the next set already!

    Hopefully its playable this time.

    I swear to God if this set doesn't have my Pidgeot EX and m Pidgeot EX in, I'm going to do some really illegal things.

    That's not uncommon. There have been a number of times where we've gotten information about X+1 set when X set hasn't released.

    I'm admittedly intrigued about the focus on Shiny Gyarados, but I'm a bit gun-shy until we learn what exactly they're doing/changing with the BREAK sets (aside from, you know, adding the Break Pokémon), so I won't let myself get excited yet.

    Leafeon-EX?

    The return of Emerald Slash, if only under a different attack name, as well as an improved version of Verdant Wind, might be something to look forward to, despite the fact that it may or may not happen, as it's too early to tell at this point...

    ^ But it's certainly not too early to guess what Leafeon-EX might look like... :)

    In terms of Gyarados-EX:

    Hopefully, there will be two Mega Gyarados cards, one water, one Dark... That could spike the set hype...

    Ok but then there really should be a colourless Gyarados-EX just to cover all the bases.

    That said the shiny Mega could just be like the shiny Primals in Ancient Origins. We don't know. Still I'll confess the thought of it is beautiful.

    Mega Gyarados better not have a Rayquaza wannabe attack that multiplies damage counters or your pokemon.

    I predict either M Pidgeot or M Alakazam in this set or the set after

    That is an amazing set name. I hope it stays the same in English, but I doubt it.

    XY9 already?! Oh no! Break Through wasn't release in November,there's another set incoming?
    And the M Gyarados Shiny will be in the set? Hey! How about the original one, Why Shiny.
    I bet that Team Magma and Aqua's elite Pokémons, Mega Camerupt and Mega Sharpedo will be in the set, because the last time we see them in Primal Clash there's no mega there. I hope this will have.

    Holy ... we are actually getting Eeveelution EX's. Did tPCI read my posts?

    It better come to Hong Kong, or else.

    Hope they would make a BREAK Eeveelution in addition to the EX. But is that asking for too much?

    No they're not, this is information sent out to retailers, consumers aren't supposed to know yet.

    It isn't confirmed that these are Eeveelution EXs I believe.
    However it is clear that these are Ancient Trait Eeveelutions which is definitely something I really wanted!
