‘Legends of Johto-GX Premium Collection’ Product Image!

We now have an exclusive product image of the “Legends of Johto GX Collection,” which releases in America and Europe on April 6th!

The product image reveals the Forbidden Light booster pack artwork for Naganadel and Ultra Necrozma. The collection is releasing on April 6th, whereas Forbidden Light releases on May 4th, so this product will include the booster packs before the set releases.

This is also the first TCG product confirmed for 2018’s “Year of Legendary Pokemon” promotion, as it has the “Legendary Pokemon” logo.

The “Legends of Johto-GX Premium Collection” will come with…

  • A brand new Raikou-GX promo
  • An alternate art promo of Entei-GX from Shining Legends
  • A foil jumbo promo of “Raikou, Entei, and Suicune” in the same vein as the original “Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos” jumbo. You can see the word “embark” in the attack effect, so it’s probably not real attack text, but something more “fun” (if the 500 HP didn’t already hint at that). The promo is also stamped with the “Legendary Pokemon” logo in the corner.
  • A Suicune pin
  • A Suicune coin
  • Six booster packs
  • A PTCGO code card

Raikou-GX and Entei-GX may be included in Japan’s Champion Road mini-set releasing on May 3rd.

Raikou-GX – Lightning – HP170
Basic Pokemon

[C][C] Dig Claws: 30 damage.

[L][L][C][C] Thunder: 150 damage. Flip a coin. If tails, this Pokemon does 50 damage to itself.

[L][L] GX Attack: Effect unknown.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: Metal (-20)
Retreat: ?

    The Entei is a reprint from SLG (sadly). Despite calling it "Never-Brefore Seen" like they did with Shiny Darkrai. The Raikou seems very unplayable

    Suicune Gx or GTFO Entei... :mad:

    EDIT: Come to think of it now its probably a good idea because it cuts Suicune's slim chance of having Rainbow/ Full Art glory. Not to mention the art on the new epic Jumbo sequel dosen't hold a candle at all to the original. Nice thoughtful idea however and an original one for once on a product like this, just badly composed since its impossible for it to be incomparable.

    I just don't understand why Pokemon TCG hates Suicune. First no Suicune EX and now no Suicune GX. Making it into a pin and coin doesn't do it justice. What did Suicune do to deserve this?

    My guess is we'll get it featured in a product or as a GX in an upcoming set.

    500 HP?!? I knew the power creep was bad, but not this out of control! :p

    Really, though, I'm sure ten years down the line, we'll be seeing Wailord-GXxX with 550 HP...

    I love the jumbo card to be honest. I am bummed like everyone else ,that suicune didn't get a GX but I look at it like this.

    Look how bad these 2 GX's are. Suicune was saved for having a bad GX

    Regardless of the reprint of Entei, this is amazing and something like this is a good call for those who played Pokemon Gold and Silver in the past.

    Of course we're getting Suicune GX. It hasn't just been left out of this box. It's been CONSPICUOUSLY left out of this box.

    Yeah. Same thing. Suicune is the box art of Pokemon Crystal and like Crystal, Suicune is a free Roaming Pokemon in HGSS, without fleeing. And makes the third party Pokemon of the Legendary Beast trio. Suicune deserves more treatment.
    Like the jumbo Zoroark one, it's jumbo and not legal for competitive tournament, just a collectible item.
    • Raikou-GX - Too bad. I put high hopes on this guy. Partial Score: 2 Geodudes

    Very surprised to see Forbidden Light booster artwork revealed this early, and especially through merchandise that is to be released a month before the set comes out. Surely the actual product won't have those boosters...

    Anyways booster artworks look cool, no surprises that Ultra Necrozma and Nagandel get an artwork. I predict the other two would be Zygarde and Greninja.

    • Raikou GX: Pretty bad, had high hopes 2/5 stars

    • Entei GX (new art): Ehhh I prefer the Shining Legends art.

    Also, why no Suicune GX? Why PTCGI, why.

    They should have made entei a coin and gave suicune a gx since entei already has one.

    The attack cost of Raikou's gx attack looks more like [L] [L] than [L] [C], but maybe I'm wrong
