‘Lost Thunder’ To Be Largest Set in TCG’s History… By Far!

Lost Thunder will be the first set in the TCG’s history to breach the 200 card barrier!

It’ll include over 210 cards — and that’s not even including the multitude of secret rares!

This is following Aquapolis‘s 186 cards, Celestial Storm‘s 183 cards, and Skyridge‘s 182 cards.

The set will feature seven Prism Star cards (three of which are Stadiums), 13 Pokemon-GX, four Ultra Beast cards, and more than 20 Trainer cards.

This information means our English set will be a combination of three Japanese sets — SM7a Thunderclap Spark, SM7b Fairy Rise, and the currently unrevealed SM8 Explosive Impact.

 

Thus, our set’s GX cards would be…

  • SM7a’s Virizion-GX, Magcargo-GX, Zeraora-GX, and Genesect-GX
  • SM7b’s Sceptile-GX, Sigilyph-GX, Alolan Ninetales-GX, and Mimikyu-GX
  • SM8’s Blacephalon-GX, Tyranitar-GX, Lugia-GX, and two unknown GX cards from that set.

The possible Prism Star cards would be Ditto and Thunder Mountain from SM7a, Xerneas and Life Forest from SM7b, and from SM8 it would be Celebi as well as two unrevealed Prism Star cards – one of which will be a Stadium card.

Lost Thunder‘s Trainer cards would include Electric Power, Custom Catcher, Mix Herb, Counter Gain, Kahili, Sightseer, Judge and Thunder Mountain Prism Star from SM7a. From SM7b, it would be Net Ball, Adventuring Satchel, Spell Tag, Fairy Charm [P], Fairy Charm [F], Fairy Charm [N], Morty, Mina, and Life Forest Prism Star. And then any Trainers from SM8, including a Prism Star Stadium card.

    I wonder when they are going to make another base set. Isn’t sun and moon just getting old?

    Largest doesn't necessarily mean best, or even good. :(

    Deck Builders rejoice! So many possibilities with Zeraora / Rayquaza and Fairy Alolan Ninetales / Gardevoir all being available at the same time!

    Gotta agree with @Jeff Stratford about the resulting bulk though... :confused:

    With SM4, a smaller set, they lowed the pull rate.
    So I assume this time, the pull rate will be increased. XD

    Glad the fairy rise cards are coming a little earlier, but that is a huge set. I hope the booster box pull rates reflect the size of the set...

    Jup, agreed. Too much (collector speaking), and just too much of the same. GX, FA GX, Rainbow Rare, repeat repeat repeat, yawn.. Shining Legends is still my favourite from this block.

    Agreed. The fairy cards are definetely going to be my favorite( I’ve been stuck playing Gardevoir this whole year. Not much luck. The new gardevoir and mimikyu are definetely interesting.). They should increase pull rates, due to the large amount of cards in the set.

    Though, now that I think of it, Celestial storm was a bit of a large set, and from what I’ve seen the pull rates are somewhat low. My brother got an elite trainer box, and all he got was a scizor gx FA. At my prerelease table, I believe I had some of the best pulls, and that was only two GX’s. So, we will see.

    With Newgaleo lurking on street date for lost thunder, I wonder if fairies in this set will be outclassed by the Newgaleo that only needs 1 DCE to do it's worst vs. the fairies. In that case, maybe the best cards in set has to be anything but a fairy-type. In that case, Fairy Rise becomes an outclassed set, while grass and lightning get all the good in this set. What a
    two-type pony indeed, outside of prerelease, of course...

    Actually, I’m not sure of newgaleo coming in this set. If that’s happening, most decks that are fairy Decks will play, IMO, mimikyu gx. The no weakness and powerful attack makes it good when it comes to finishing Pokémon, and it with no weakness it needs to be 2 shot by newgaleo.

    Yes, but the last 3 or so sets all had so many so early.
    It's both good and bad for me. Back in the day I never knew what a set had in it before opening the first booster pack of it. But nowadays I'm looking at Pokébeach almost every day and will know every card before, just maybe not if a card is a rare or uncommon or a uncommon or common. I should stop looking, it would be much better, but I can't.

    If Lugia Full art is #100 and WPM states there are 5 GX cards in the SM8 set, there could only be a Whitney Full Art if the fifth GX comes after Lugia. But another colorless GX... I’ll doubt it
    096 Blacephalon
    097 Suicune ?
    098 ?
    099 Tyranitar
    100 Lugia
