We now have the booster pack image for Japan’s next mini-set, Mythical / Legendary Dream Holo Collection, which we first posted about three months ago with the reveal of XY11’s set name. The mini-set will be released in Japan on July 16th.
As posted before, the set will feature 36 cards, excluding secret rares, and all of the Pokemon will either be Mythical or Legendary Pokemon. This mini-set is yet another Pokekyun Collection and Shiny Collection set in that all of the cards will be holo. Each booster pack will only come with four cards as opposed to five for regular sets.
The booster pack image is a pretty big hint that a large portion of the set will be cards that America received first, such as:
- The promos from our Mythical Pokemon Collections (11 total)
- Rayquaza-EX, Hoopa-EX, and Latios-EX from the Power Beyond Tins (3 cards)
- Zygarde-EX, shiny Xerneas-EX, and shiny Yveltal-EX from the Shiny Kalos Tins (3 cards)
- Other English-exclusive cards that could be in this set include the Fates Collide prerelease promos Moltres, Zygarde, and White Kyurem (Tyranitar isn’t a Mythical or Legendary Pokemon).
The Magearna and Volcanion on the booster pack might be alternate art reprints of Magearna-EX and Volcanion-EX from XY11.
So this set is looking to be a bunch of alternate art reprints, the Mythical Pokemon Collection promos, and who knows what else? Unfortunately the booster pack image doesn’t point to any cards we can’t account for, so there may not be too many surprises (but who knows?). From my list above we can count 22 cards at most, which would still leave 14 cards unaccounted for.
