‘Lost Thunder’ Booster Box, Pack, Theme Deck Images!

We’ve received a couple images of Lost Thunder‘s booster box, theme deck, and booster pack images!

As you can see, the set’s booster packs will feature Zeraora, Blacephalon, Lugia, and Celebi.

Lost Thunder will hit store shelves on November 2nd. It will be the largest set in the game’s history with over 210 cards coming from three Japanese sets — SM7a Thunderclap Spark, SM7b Fairy Rise, and SM8 Explosive Impact.

The theme decks will feature SM8’s Entei and Raikou:

Entei – Fire – HP130
Basic Pokemon

[R][C] Fire Fang: 20 damage. Your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Burned.

[R][R][C] Eruption: 80+ damage. Each player discards the top card from their deck. This attack does 60 more damage for each Energy card discarded.

Weakness: Water (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2


Raikou – Lightning – HP120
Basic Pokemon

[L][C] Lost Voltage: 30 damage. If you have any [L] Energy in the Lost Zone, this attack does 90 more damage.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: Metal (-20)
Retreat: 2

    It's been a while since we've had Basics as the main Pokémon on the theme decks. Haven't had one since Mewtwo from Evolutions, so these are the first from the SM block.

    I have no doubt that the Ampharos line will be in the Raikou deck. As for Entei deck, I thinks there's a good chance Celestial Storm's Magcargo will be in so you can power up Entei's Eruption. Maybe a Hiker or two as well so you have a good chance of hitting those OHKOs on the big Stage 2s.

    Too bad Entei and Raikou will be non holo rares. At least Suicune is getting some much needed love!

    Celebi is almost as good as the Leafeon pack art from Ultra Prism.
    (I have an extreme Ultra Prism problem.)
    But we can agree that the Ultra Prism theme decks were actually half decent, right?

    Entei with magcargo could be a good budget deck

    Lost Voltage is... pretty good... if you have another Pokemon that tosses L energy into the lost zone.

    Lost Thunder comes with an Ampharos that banishes Electric energy to paralyze the Defending Pokemon.

    I hope that the Raikou theme deck comes with Lost Mixer so that if new players want to try out Jumpluff, they will not need to get as many cards for the deck.

    Interesting that A. Exeggutor is an alternate art card. You'd think that it would rotate out at the same time as Lost Thunder. Did they basically just confirm that 2020's rotation will be Lost Thunder-on?

    Excellent. This is very much the wrong set for the usual overpriced ETB. 12 packs are needed.

    2019 is Ultra Prism onwards, 2020 is the February set onwards
    Since that Exeggutor is part of the Ultra Prism rotation and Lost Thunder will be in rotation until 2020, that Exeggutor will indeed rotate at the same time as Lost Thunder

    I would assume that it will be USM-on since this is a chance to syncronise the meta in Japan and the rest of the world.

    I'm curious as to why they usually pick such bad promos in their blisters. Are they purposely trying to not sell their products?

    Competitive players aren't the main market for blisters. I'd expect a Pokemon like Rowlett to sell BETTER than something like Malamar with actual competitive value.
