‘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.

  • Over 210 cards

    There won't be another GX after Lugia, though I don't really understand what that has to do with the Whitney FA? As you said, we know that there are 5 GX's in the set, so if Lugia is 100, that means that the other 4 GX cards would be before it and the FA Supporters would be after it. It would look like:

    096. Blacephalon GX (If there isn't any Grass-type GX)
    097. ???
    098. ???
    099. Tyranitar GX (If there isn't any Fairy, Metal or Dragon-type GX)
    100. Lugia GX
    101. Professor Elm
    102. Whitney

    And then the Rainbow Rares would come after that. So there is actually a good possibility in that we're getting a Whitney FA!

    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.
