‘Forbidden Light’ Partial Set List Revealed!

A Forbidden Light poster is currently on display at Japan’s TCG tournaments, revealing the set’s first 47 cards (out of 94). It cuts off before revealing the rest of the set’s Fighting-types, Fairy-types, Dragon-types, Colorless-types, and Trainers.

We know Cubone is #41/94, and it’s the 41st card on the poster, so this poster does in fact show all of the set’s cards leading up to #47 Hawlucha. This means the Chespin line is not in the set! :o They’re probably saving it for SM6a Dragon Storm so people feel their collections are incomplete and buy that set (marketing!).

Of note is Scatterbug, Delphox, Frogadier, Greninja-GX, Volcanion Prism Star, Honedge, and Dragalgae have Abilities, Volcanion Prism Star is a Water-type, and Pheromosa appears as a regular Ultra Beast. The set is of course mostly comprised of Kalos Pokemon with some Alola Pokemon mixed in.

Grass-types: #1 Exeggcute, #2 Alolan Exeggutor, #3 Scatterbug, #4 Scatterbug, #5 Spwepa, #6 Vivillon, #7 Skiddo, #8 Gogoat, #9 Pheromosa

Fire-types: #10 Alolan Marowak, #11 Fennekin, #12 Fennekin, #13 Braixen, #14 Delphox, #15 Litleo, #16 Pyroar

Water-types: #17 Froakie, #18 Froakie, #19 Frogadier, #20 Greninja-GX, #21 Clauncher, #22 Clawitzer, #23 Amaura, #24 Aurorus, #25 Bergmite, #26 Avalugg, #27 Volcanion Prism Star

Lightning-types: #28 Helioptile, #29 Heliolisk

Psychic-types: #30 Espurr, #31 Meowstic, #32 Honedge, #33 Honedge, #34 Doublade, #35 Aegislash, #36 Inkay, #37 Malamar, #38 Skrelp, #39 Dragalgae, #40 Hoopa

Fighting-types: #41 Cubone, #42 Pancham, #43 Binacle, #44 Barbaracle, #45 Tyrunt, #46 Tyrantrum, #47 Hawlucha

Beyond the poster (from previous reveals): #50 Zygarde-GX, #51 Diancie Prism Star, #?? Pangoro, #62 Dedenne, #?? Sylveon, #69 Ultra Necrozma-GX, #?? Noibat, #?? Noivern, #77 Fossil Excavation Map, #?? Eneporter, #83 Mystery Treasure, #90 Bonnie, #92 Lysandre Labs, #?? Lysandre Prism Star

So we now know what 61 of the set’s 94 cards are (excluding secret rares).

The photo of the poster is too small to make out any card text. The poster might be too small in real life to read anything as well. However, I’m currently requesting a larger image of the poster, so be sure to check back here in case we’re able to read the cards!

SM6 Forbidden Light will release in Japan on March 2nd and in America on May 4th.

    Could be good in decks like Gardevoir whee you can move a DCE from a benched Pokemon to the active to take a KO. Also you can strand something like DCE on an Octillery or move a counter energy to a GX, or move a strong energy to a benched non fighting pokemon, the list goes on. 3.5/5

    • Pancham: I mean you can knock out a Zorua with a strong energy, but beyond that... 1.5/5

    • Pangoro: First attack is pretty bad, second attack is slightly better but still bad. Just pack fodder is how I see these. 1.5/5

    I'm guessing that they will make $40 Palkia and Dialga GX boxes which will include both the normal and full art version.

    I was just about to say the same thing about the Dragalge. I hope that comes back. I need to make a poison lock deck.

    Has anyone used the new fossil cards yet? Can those be benched during setup/ found with ball cards?

    i like this more than E-hammer in expanded since zoroarks always have puzzle to get back DCE. So I can move it onto a Shaymin and they only way they would get it back is if they use their attack or retreating (which is just as good as the E-hammer scenario)

    Chespin gets an unfair treatment. Hey, Calem used Chesnaught in the manga .(Refer to the Pokemon Generations ep.), I think you give Chespin some love. And, is Dragon Storm only focus Water, Fire, and Dragon? Chespin wouldn't fit there.

    Whilst Aqua Patch would help it out whatever the attack is it is still an inefficient energy cost for a Stage 2. What would solve that would be energy acceleration on the ability but it could be anything really.

    Oh yeah, go right ahead and give Greninja a GX but not the other two. I am sick and tired of these clear favorites the Pokémon Company have.
