America’s November Set: ‘Crimson Invasion,’ Ultra Beast Premium Collections!

The Ultra Beasts have arrived! Our fourth Sun & Moon set will be named Crimson Invasion and will be released on November 4th!

The set will be our equivalent of Japan’s SM4 set, The Awoken Hero and The Transdimensional Beast, which will feature Silvally-GX and Guzzlord-GX (as you can see to the right).

Crimson Chaos Across Alola!

The Alola region is being invaded by mysterious and powerful creatures! Can the allies of Alola defend the islands – or will the Ultra Beasts take control? Find out when you battle for the prize with the Pokemon TCG: Sun & Moon – Crimson Invasion expansion!

• Over 110 cards
• 8 new Pokemon-GX
• 9 new Trainer cards and 1 new Special Energy card
• The Ultra Beasts make their debut, including Guzzlord-GX and Nihilego-GX!

No set logo or images have been revealed at this time. “Crimson” is a deep red color and is usually associated with blood, so the set name could be read as “bloody invasion.” I bet the Elite Trainer Box will be red. Also, I wonder if the Energy card is for the Ultra Beasts?

Two Premium Collections will also be released alongside the set featuring four of the seven Ultra Beasts!


The Ultra Beasts, strange creatures from another dimension, have come to the Alola region as powerful Pokemon-GX!

Two collections featuring these otherworldly Pokemon are slipping through the Ultra Wormhole in November… catch them while you can!

Each Pokemon TCG Ultra Beasts GX Premium Collection includes:

• 2 foil promo cards featuring Ultra Beasts (Pheromosa-GX and Celesteela-GX, or Buzzwole-GX and Xurkitree-GX)
• A foil oversize card featuring an Ultra Beast (Pheromosa-GX or Buzzwole-GX)
• An awesome playmat showing off the Ultra Beasts (1 of 2 designs)
• 8 Pokemon TCG booster packs
• A cool Pokemon coin
• A code card for the Pokemon TCG Online

The product description does not state the Ultra Beasts are “never before seen” promos, so this likely confirms all of them will originate from Crimson Invasion. Along with the rest of the information we know about the set, this means our eight Pokemon-GX should be Silvally-GX plus Nihilego-GX, Buzzwole-GX, Pheremosa-GX, Xurkitree-GX, Celesteela-GX, Kartana-GX, and Guzzlord-GX (all seven of the Ultra Beasts).
