New Tag Team Pokemon-GX in ‘Night Unison’ and ‘Full Metal Wall!’

As posted a few days ago, Japan’s January set will be named Night Unison. It will release on January 11th and feature 55 cards:

 

Judging by the dummy booster pack image, it’s almost certain the set will feature a Darkness-type Tag Team “Zoroark & Greninja-GX.” These dummy images usually feature at least three Pokemon, so for them to only show two is an obvious hint.

Even though October’s Dark Order will feature Dark-type Pokemon (and even a Zoroark), this set will again feature Dark Pokemon. Odd! Perhaps they want to supplement the power of the Darkness Pokemon from the earlier set with this one?

As also posted before, Japan’s February set will be named Full Metal Wall. It will feature 54 cards and release on February 1st:

“Buzzwole & Pheromosa-GX” are confirmed as a “sinister” Tag Team Pokemon-GX in the set. Neither are Steel-type, so perhaps the set name is referring to a unison of defense rather than a specific type? Both Pokemon are Bug / Fighting-type, so their GX will be either Grass or Fighting.

Both mini-sets will likely be combined into our May 2019 set in America and the rest of the world.

You think they’d release another Water-type set since everyone knows Water Pokemon are the serperior type. 🤔

    i hope they will make some sort of golden rare out of these "tag" cards
    or it will be a passing trend like the up and down cards from HGSS.

    It's about time Pokemon started showing some love to Zoroark and Buzzwole.
    Dark and Fighting types are so week in current meta, so its a welcome move from the Company.

    D: Because Gen 1 will take up 80% of the Pokémon cards and poor Unova, which has more mon in it will have 20% and that will just be the box legendaries, the starters and like 5 other Pokémon.

    Honestly, I'm fine with these combinations. I really like both Buzzwole and Pheromosa and, besides, I'd argue we're in a good mix of Pokemon getting ultra rares. We've been getting lots of obscure stuff like Sigilyph and Shuckle, but also popular Pokemon to keep a good balance. Things that are popular are popular for a reason, so I don't see why it's necessarily a bad thing that they're getting love still if theres been a healthy balance lately. Remember, it could be a lot worse, at least we aren't getting Mewtwo and Charizard all the time (as much as I like both I do agree they did get a little much in terms of the ultra rare department back then).

    I could see the Pheromosa and Buzzwole one being made into a rule 34.

    Zoroark & Greninja GX sounds cool. A must have for my collection :)
    Those two tag teams will break the assumption of Tag teams being a basic Pokémon+an evolution Pokémon (I know in tcg pikachu usually is basic but pichu is real XD).

    I mean, previously they didn't need much help.... in fact seeing more dark and fighting support is actually scary, because pre-rotation Zoraork was (and still somewhat is) broken, not to mention Buzzwole. It's time for new decks to emerge.
