  3. Wechselbalg "okey"


    That Eevee pack art is going to give me nightmares.

    So we'll get Charizard and Blastoise as Non-Holo Rares in the set.

    Like what I said, "Cards featured in a theme deck are Non-Holo Rares in the set"
    Elray and Swampert Full Art like this.
  5. ShinyJordeon Aspiring Trainer


    Damn, they should have used that gengar/mimikyu art for the secret rare!
  6. KeoKeo Aspiring Trainer


    Why does all the pack art look so creepy?
  7. TinyCubinator Aspiring Trainer


    My boi Blastoise is going to be a non holo ;(
  8. Lord Goomy Got Goomies?

    Oh goodness, these look like packs out of ten years ago. The simplicity is offsetting. I like them though.
  9. WillyCharizard Aspiring Trainer


    Well I was right about the main pokemon theme decks

    The only problem I see with them (Speaking of theme deck vs theme deck) Is that both become 130hp after ability and first attack respectively, so vulnerables to be killed by easily by things like Entei or Alolan Exegutor/Raikou + Kukui

    Its probably too early but I will say that Blasteoise is the best of these two, only need a good second attacker
  10. TheRealBro.. Let's get drowzee


    Awesome pack artwork! Do I need to say anymore?
  11. Swampert Full Art #GROOKEYGANG
    Swampert Full Art


    Wow is that going to be the first ever non-holo Charizard, or have they made some before? Either way the blister pack assortment may be the best of the sun and moon era. No alternate arts!

    Legendary Collection Charizard got a non holo print
  13. MegaAbsol10 I'm playing Big Blacephalon next quarter :)


    The Pack Artwork is amazing, because of the fact it looks like it's been ripped straight out of DPPt! I can't wait to see our Pikachu and Zekrom Pre-Release Kit!
  14. StormCrusher3 Aspiring Trainer
