Shiny Magnezone, Metang, Beldum from ‘GX Ultra Shiny,’ Reverse Holofoil Look!

We now have an early photo of shiny Magnezone from GX Ultra Shiny, which is a reprint of Magnezone from Ultra Prism. We also have a real photo of the set’s glossy reverse holos.

Update: And literally two seconds after posting, shiny Beldum and Metang were officially revealed! They’re reprints of Beldum from Guardians Rising and Metang from Guardians Rising.

The tips of shiny Magnezone’s poles were originally gray and light blue, as first seen in Platinum. But for some reason in Gen 7 they were recolored to be red and blue like regular Magnezone. Magnezone’s poles are always gray until they “turn on” and become colored.

It appears each of the set’s 10-card booster packs will come with one reverse holo, one holo, one Pokemon-GX, and one shiny Pokemon. We’re still awaiting final confirmation on this.

The set will release in Japan on November 2nd. All of the set’s normal cards were revealed the other day. The set will have at least 90 secret rares, which is the largest for any English or Japanese set in the game’s history. Only 17 of them have been revealed so far.

    That Metang art looks siiiiiick.

    Specifically him more so because of the pose, but I'm glad shiny Magnezone and Beldum are a thing now. Where's shiny Metagross-GX though?
     
  2. Love that Magnezone! It reminds me of an old war campaign poster!

    These are looking really nice. I wonder what their print factory process looks like.

    I'd actually run multiples in my Meta/Solgaleo deck for that art alone.

    These cards are beyond the set number (150), which makes them SR. Also noticed a little "S" near the number.

    That makes them less rare than the FA Shiney GXs, which have "SS" near the number?

    This is without doubt going to be my favorite set ever. I just wish it would have shiny gastly in it since its my favorite pokemon.
    I don't like hot they changed the colors on shiny magnezone.

    Wow, all of these revealed so far look way better than the GX shinies. Beldum is so pretty.

    I'm hoping that these end up as the "holo rares" slot in out US set.

    Ot would be nice to know that a white code card is a guaranteed awesome card. Whether it be a normal shiny or a GX/Shiny GX!

    That shattered holo on the RH is amazing. I can't wait to see how much of this comes over at once.

    Man I wish TPCi had the decency to bring this over to the west. I still hate the fact that we get everything 3+ months before Japan does

    They stated 1 per box. Also, the fact they are all over the regular set card numbers kinda in itself points to them not being 1 per back.

    Halfway down talks about 1 per box.

    Why don't the energies say who the artist is anymore?? Not even the beast energy which is a prism star

    So happy with how this set is turning out, as long as the pull rates aren't ridiculously unfair this is going to be a landmark set.
