25+ ‘Shining Legends’ Cards Revealed!

Last night, an official live stream was held that revealed over 25 new Shining Legends cards!

While the live stream was in HD, most of the cards were only revealed within a small portion of the frame. Thus, this post only contains translations for the cards that were readable. Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translations!

You can view the set list from forum mod steffenka in the second post below.

Shining Legends will be released in Japan on July 15th and in America on October 4th.

    *Looks at Venusaur* If Forest gets rotated out I'm playing expanded.

    But seriously, WHAT? I feel like Grass decks are gonna become more of a thing now. Speeding up the set up of Trevenant and Vileplume? Yes please.
    I just wish there was more OP love for other types.
    As a final note, doesn't this just make you glad that Poison types aren't represented by Grass anymore?

    Venusaur would be broken...


    if it wasn't a stage two :(

    Hoopa seems interesting, and Yveltal comes back, but even powerful!!!

    Venusaur in expanded is broken tho

    UPDATE: Yeah since Forest is gonna get banned in Expanded, this probably would only see success in Bulu XD

    So, all this means for me is that I can't buy food until this set comes out. I'll go bankrupt for a Master Set, honestly.

    1. Trainers are always arranged in alphabetical order
    2. # 10 has to be Dhelmise, Bulu, Kartana, or potentially a random evolving basic :/
    3. #47 has to be Sableye, or a random evolving basic from gens 2-4
    4. #60 has to be Audino, Meloetta (very likely), Furfrou, Oranguru, Komala, Drampa, or a random Trainer

    47 could also be a Fighting-type Pokemon, and 10 a Fire-type. It could actually be Cubone and Alolan Marowak, but it could just as well be Moltres or one of the ones you mentioned.

    OMG There's a Totodile in the set!!!! I can't believe this, I'm so collecting as many Totodile as I can get from this set. It's by far my favorite pokemon so I'll try to get a TON of them :3

    Then over to the good stuff, Venusaur could be good in M-Venusaur EX decks as a 1 of giving the fact you only need 2 grass energy's to use crisis vine. This could see some play cause it goes from a massive 4 to just 2 energy. which is a regular attachment + mega turbo.

    Then the fa's... Oh god do I love the fa's. Idk why but I've liked the fa's from sun/moon ever since they came out, even though I've seen some hate on it. I love them and I can't wait to get my hands on fa Zoroark/Raichu.

    Pretty sure it's the "Gyarados-EX with Manaphy and Greninja in the artwork" of this set.

    Raichu is still my highlight, but despite my complaining, that is one sexy Mewtwo card
    After 3 sets of not having them?
    Last time we had that was Steam Siege.

    Does this Warp Energy help Golisopod-GX much? Means you won't have to be playing Guzma every turn, but doesn't particularly fit with the energy costs. Maybe with some Multi-switch in hrmm.

    (Hopes for a Meloetta)

    Why do you think Kartana would be in this though? Don't you think it would fit better in SM4?

    Overall it seems like a lot of these can see niche use it seems - which is a good thing! More cards that have potential of any sort gives more people options in their choices. Also that art on the regular art Mewtwo gx is amazing - I don't think the full art compares at all to be honest

    Holy cow, if that Mewtwo artwork is done by Mitsuhiro Arita, I'm gonna marry him. An even if it's blurred and all, you can tell that the artwork has his style.
