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.
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!
