As posted a while ago, November 18th will see the release of two “Alola Collections” featuring Solgaleo or Lunala. These will be the first English Pokemon TCG Sun and Moon products.

Each collection will come with a jumbo Pokemon-GX, a figure, a collector’s pin, five booster packs, a PTCGO code card, and foil promo cards of Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio. The promo cards are a mix of actual Sun and Moon promos (SM01-SM03) as well as reprinted cards from Sun & Moon (9/149, 24/149, 39/149) that have a holo treatment they won’t get in the actual sets.

The promo images above also reveal the official Pokedex entries for Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio:

  • Rowlet, #722: This wary Pokemon uses photosynthesis to store up energy during the day, while becoming active at night.
  • Litten, #725: While grooming itself, it builds up fur inside its stomach. It sets the fur alight and spews fiery attacks, which change based on how it coughs.
  • Popplio, #728: This Pokemon snorts body fluids from its nose, blowing balloons to smash into its foes. It’s famous for being a hard worker.

The attack costs of Solgaleo-GX and Lunala-GX’s GX attacks have still not been revealed.

  1. This confirms that Magearna won't precede the starters in the dex like Victini did back in Gen 5, at least.

    According to the back of the box, the pin is from "first partner with Rowlet, Litten and Popplio", but we see the pin of Solgaleo, or Lunala in the other box. Bad printing or it's from another set?
    Also, the box says it comes with three booster packs, but we clearly see five. What's going on here?
    Thanks anyways. I'll buy it just can.

    From the starter cards, we can also see the Sun & Moon Base Set symbol, and that the card set data will be at the bottom left as apposed to the bottom right for all this time!

    But the Litten card is a Black Star Promo, unlike the others.

    I like the mixture of set cards and promos which force use to buy 2 boxes. It is confirmed that:
    • 722 - Rowlet
    • 723 - Dartrix
    • 724 - Decidueye
    • 725 - Litten
    • 726 - Torracat
    • 727 - Incineroar
    • 728 - Popplio
    • 729 - Brionne
    • 730 - Primarina
    ... And, another Furious Fist in the promo. When we can get enough of these FUF packs??!!

    So Solgaleo is basically Lysandre, but without the need to waste one's supporter?

    I can see him becoming a tech card for many decks.

    Lunala is basically a better version of Aromatisee...this deck can be devastating with M Mewtwo Y.

    But in the other Collection, Litten is the only non-promo and the other two are promos. Just so you "have" to buy both to get all 3.

    Could this also confirm that Cosmog evolves into both Solgaleo and Lunala? Note that their stages still have not been revealed, but we have Pokemon-GX of every stage.

    No, you can switch your active, not the opponent's.

    They still don't reveal the HP, the stage and the energy cost of their attacks.

    I hadn't realise that detail. hahaha. Great!

    This is the "front version" of the box that matches with the "back version" shown here. This is the box that brings a pin of the three starters and three tcg booster packs.
    Maybe the difference is the classic "Europen version" and "American version". As always.

    Wow November is STACKED, good lord. Definitely won't have money to afford all this, probably will pass on this box until December or something. For people that have been collecting for awhile this is probably simpler but for a newish guy like me, it's hard. Still don't even have much of the older stuff, I am in between a rock and a hard place of choosing either to buy some older stuff before it gets cycled out and thus more expensive or staying hip and up to date (which is fun in of itself) with all the latest stuff xD

    Cool box, but confusing description considering the back of the box of the scans don't match the front at all.

    Shame how the merchndaise is derived from Solgaleo and Lunalalalala when there are no actual promo cards. I'm a figure over jumbo promo type of person and as would be expected these figures are more better detailed and quality made then the Tomy or the UK Prerelease figures so I am happy that my expectation got by on that part.

    Pity same with Snorlax GX box also how they couldn't wait to include 7th Gen packs and rush these out like riding a Tauros in the outside world.

    I really think a product that is suppose to be about the future of game really shouldn't have expanded booster packs regardless of how good of a set it is.

    This also seems to be replacing the lunch boxes they have made for the past two years.

    If these are the packs we actually get in the set, then no thanks, I'll pass. Evolutions and Steam Siege are fine, but Furious Fists and Phantom Forces? Why?

    Ugh, all I just want is the Lunala figure, but I don't wanna buy an entire box set that's gonna cost 50 bucks. :/

    Uuuumm... What? Why on earth did they split the Black Star Promos between these two "collections" with alt holo cards from the set? (I mean, aside from the obvious cash grab, because this way, you "have to" buy both products to get all three Black Star Promos; and lets increase the pack count to increase the price while we're at it.) I would have considered buying one of these, depending on the price, if both included all three Black Star Promos, but nope. Buying the Promos online. I have no interest in the jumbo cards, figures, or the pins, so I have no reason buy either products.

    No can't do it. Just realized the flavor text isn't boxed. Also what's up the litten in the Sol gell box is promo nut the Rowlet and Popplio aren't? And in the Lunala box they're all promo. What are they doing?

    God these new cards are hideous. Whomever designed them should be fired along with whatever executive or team of executives who approved them. It looks so discombobulated and cheap.

    Also the fact that they are purposely not showing Solagaleo and Lunala's stage pretty much confirms that they are evolved Pokemon. I'm guessing Cosmog -> Quapod (not the real name, just what I've been calling him in my head) -> Solgaleo or Lunala depending on the version. Neat idea, but I feel like Stage 2 legendaries are going to be ridiculously OP.
