‘Generations’ Elite Trainer Box Confirmed for English Release!

Back in March I posted that a Generations Elite Trainer Box would be released in France with a Shaymin-EX promo. We can now exclusively confirm it will be released in the United States and Europe (as expected).

The Generations Elite Trainer Box will come with a Shaymin-EX promo, ten Generations booster packs, 65 black-and-gold card sleeves with Pokemon’s 20th anniversary logo, 45 basic Energy cards with a new design, 6 damage-counter dice, a coin flip die, two acrylic Status Condition markers, a collector’s box to hold everything (with four dividers), a Generations player guide, and a PTCGO code card.

The box will be released on September 14th. We do not have its image yet or know its price.

    I can't wait to see what these sleeves look like. I also can't wait to see if that Shaymin EX is going to get any play. I think I probably will look at this card in the future.

    I hope this will make the bottom drop out on cards like M-Charizard EX and Jolteon EX. Unreal what those are going for. I'm excited for the sleeves and dice... may have to get more then 1 of these boxes!

    I doubt it, because it would compete with Shaymin ROS for space

    You're a little late on that, TPCI/PCL, but at least we'll be getting an easier way to get Generations packs now. It'll soothe the demand for Jolteons a bit if the hype hasn't already died by then.

    I hope the code card gives you the 10 packs online and not just the sleeves/deck box.
     
  10. I will get that Mega Charizard X card if it's the last thing I do!!! Oh yeah, I will get Jolteon-EX if it's the last thing I do!!!

    Let's see... the average price of a pack going by the legendary collection boxes at $13 / 2, $25 / 4 (plus promo card / pin / figure / etc) is $6.25-$6.50.

    Just based on history, for 10 packs, this set will probably be $60-$70. I hope this is not actually the case.

    Very interested in this box. Generations is a...unique set to say the least. The limited supply has definitely done weird things to the market. Curious to see how this increased supply deals with the demand.

    Good luck Australians. Your wallets are about to get killed...
     
  15. Sigh, why does this have to wait until September? I guess they needed a box between the new set in August and the final set of the year in November. Still, why?

    I don't see why this would be more than the other ETB's.

    I was hoping for the Pokekyun sleeves, oh well.

    Coming out a bit late in the year, but I'm glad that this is confirmed! I'm hoping that those "basic Energy cards with a new design" are the designs from the Generations set (it'd make sense) - I really love the designs on them, and would love to have a proper set without having to rely on pulling them (or paying directly for them).

    I wonder if it's going to be more expensive than the other ETBs. Regardless, I'll be getting at least one. If the sleeves and the box look good, I'll probably grab another 2 or 3. I love the ETB boxes, they're great for storing cards and such!

    That Shaymin's ability is decent enough, I'm just not sure if it will see a lot of play.
