A new “Premium Trainer’s XY Collection” will be released in America and Europe on November 17th!
This collection is being touted as the largest Pokemon TCG product ever assembled!
Each collection will come with the 14 full art promo cards, including Shaymin-EX, Yveltal-EX, Aegislash-EX, Jirachi, and N. This means it will likely contain all the unreleased full art promo cards from Japan’s The Best of XY as well as the unreleased Japanese full art promo Jirachi.
Shaymin-EX and Yveltal-EX will feature special art treatment, so they’ll probably be the only textured cards in the product.
The collection will feature some premium goodies — a large kickstand-style box to hold everything, a metal Pikachu coin, two sets of 65 card sleeves featuring Xerneas and Yveltal, one double deck box of the two Pokemon, two sets of dice, two XY series booster packs, and a PTCGO code card.
The collection will retail for
around $80 $100, so it’s meant to be a large Christmas present.
Now see, this is the only time we’ll ever get a chase card like Shaymin-EX… once it’s illegal for Standard play. :x Shaymin-EX and Yveltal-EX will be alternate art promos, which means they’ll retain the legality of their earlier prints. So come November when this product is released and Roaring Skies Shaymin-EX is no longer legal for Standard, both this Shaymin-EX and the earlier Roaring Skies prints will remain illegal.
