Shining Mew, Shining Ho-Oh, and Marshadow from SM3+ ‘Shining Legends!’

Gosh dang it Pokemon, I haven’t even slept yet because of SM3! The Japanese Pokemon Card website has officially revealed SM3+ Shining Legends!

As we posted back in March, the set will be released on July 15th, the same day as the 20th movie. It’ll feature 72 cards, including Shining Mew, Mewtwo, and Pikachu. Each booster pack will come with six cards, with one of the cards being a holo. Presumably, the Pokemon in the set are inspired by the plot of the 20th movie, the first Kanto episode, and Ash’s overall adventures in Kanto.

Like in Neo Destiny, all the Shining Pokemon will have their shiny coloration. They will also be printed on a special holofoil paper. Perhaps it will be similar to the holofoil used for the Shining Pokemon of the Neo era?

The cards from this set will probably be part of our English SM4 set in November.
