Shiny Alolan Vulpix, Gabite from ‘GX Ultra Shiny!’

Bling-bling-ching-ling! Alolan Vulpix from Guardians Rising and Gabite from Ultra Prism will be getting the shiny treatment in GX Ultra Shiny!

 

The set will release in Japan on November 2nd. It will have at least 90 secret rares, which is the largest for any English or Japanese set in the game’s history. Only 19 of them have been revealed so far.

All of the set’s normal cards were revealed the other day.

We do not yet know how these shiny cards will be released outside Japan.

    With every leak, I wonder if Arceus is telling me to move to Japan.

    Everyone will talk about the Vulpix, but that Gabite is AMAZING.

    I bet these will be part of or the entire next special holiday set, or at least I hope so, but that would bring up the issue of card legality. They would all have to be alternate art reprints or they would extend the legality on these somehow. Idk.

    So would this new vulpix reset its legality so that it will stay standard for a while longer?

    No. The cards use the original set numbering (or however someone else wants to explain it) so they retain their original legalities.

    Every non-GX shiny so far from this set has had incredible artwork, gonna be real upset if we never get them in the west.

    Japanese cards since the beginning of Sun/Moon expansions have had the letter A, then B printed next to the set symbol (in this case, SM8b). The cards that are reprinted in this set have the SM8b symbol and the letter of the ORIGINAL set they were in. It is widely assumed that the letters are to rotate blocks of cards out of format (first "four" SM sets had A, then B for 5-8).

    TL;DR - Probably not.

    So the A is basically saying it is originally a part of the A block then, even though it's a part of SM8b?

    Yeah, no. The shiny Vulpix looks nothing different from the regular Vulpix.

    I hope we get another mini-set here in the West with all the Shiny Pokemon. In my opinion, they should've saved Shining Legends for now and make it a whole set with contents from this set's shiny Pokemon and all of Shining Legends.

    Why not both?
