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.

    My guess is this SR shinies of this set will be thrown into a rare subset because we don't have a subset in 2019 yet, and we don't want another humongous set which the pulls are abomination due to how rare these cards were.

    I think ultra shiny packs would cost a fortune, maybe 40$

    Yeah, but the S rarity still won't be one per pack. Maybe 2 a box on top of the SSR, remember boxes are only 10 packs.

    Too much value if they but one in every pack. Going to be hard not to pull $50 from a box unless prices crash hard and that is before the Shiny cards.

    Seeing as I love a few metal decks at the moment, a shiny version of Magnezone is a pleasant addition. Not only that, but does this keep Magnezone in the game beyond the next rotation?

    90 secret rares? Doubt it. Just because there will be gxs that are shiny doesnt essentially mean it will be a secret rare in the same set. Ancient Origins and Roaring Skies had shinies of Primal Kyogre/Groudon and MRayquaza. But only one of the Rays were a secret rare. Its the collection numbers on the (now) lower left hand corner of the card. If the number reads as such 10/114. That is under the normal set number of cards. If the number on the left was above 114 then it is a secret rare. Hyper Rares and gold items give away their rarity. But after seeing the FA shiny Lycanroc GX and Gardevoir GX? I don't know for sure those will be secret rares. But we wont know until the english release of Tag Team. Which will probably have some GX Ultra Shiny cards in it. The shiny GX reprints i can see being secret rares in TagTeam come February. 90 secrets in one set. It would make the pull ratios unbalanced in my opinion. This is all my opinion.

    The foil style might only be made for the cards in this one set as it was done with the Radiant Collections in Legendary Treasures and Generations. Those cards had a special foil design for that "set within a set".

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

    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.
