‘Unbroken Bonds’ Mini Album, Elite Trainer Box Artwork!

We’ve received an exclusive image of the Unbroken Bonds mini album as well as an image of the Elite Trainer Box’s artwork.

 

As posted before:

The tenth Sun & Moon English set will be named Unbroken Bonds and will release on May 3rd!

The set will contain over 210 cards, including seven new Tag Team Pokemon-GX, seven regular Pokemon-GX, more than 25 Trainer cards, and a new Special Energy card.

Its Elite Trainer Box will feature Charizard & Reshiram-GX.

Our Unbroken Bonds set will be a combination of Night Unison‘s 55 cards (releasing in Japan on Friday), Full Metal Wall‘s 54 cards (releasing in Japan on February 1st), and Double Blaze‘s 95 cards (releasing in Japan on March 1st).

The set will thus include Night Unison‘s Venomoth-GX, Dedenne-GX, Greninja & Zoroark-GX, and Gardevoir & Sylveon-GX, the unrevealed Buzzwole & Pheromosa-GX and Lucario & Melmetal-GX from Full Metal Wall, and the unrevealed Charizard & Reshiram-GX from Double Blaze. There are of course more Pokemon-GX to be revealed from those sets.

No new Special Energy has been announced recently, so we’ll probably see it in either Full Metal Wall or Double Blaze.

Other upcoming Japanese sets include GG End on April 5th, Sky Legends on April 26th, and Miracle Twins on May 31st. Those three sets will likely comprise our August SM11 set. Japan is also getting a Detective Pikachu mini-set on April 26th, which we’re getting in America and Europe this spring through various Detective Pikachu TCG products.

    Gonna be honest:
    - I dislike Tag Teams.
    - I dislike Charizard.
    - But I LOVE that ETB art.

    Sets these days are getting way too big. It's impossible to finish a set without spending your life's savings, only for an even bigger one to come right after.

    I really hope that they fix the texture issue with the FAs/SRs with Unbroken Bonds!

    This looks like a set that's been rotated for and already on the clearance rack for more money than it's worth

    But for now, it does look cool ~

    Totally get you, but I feel like the quantity isn't an issue. Problem is these cards are freaking expensive and what makes even worst is how big packaging they do, by using lot more plastic and large empty boxes that increase the size and weight. That factor alone for most international buyers is hitting the pocket/bank account really hard because the packaging is calculated by weight and size. So yea for single elite trainer box I have to pay for shipping 11 euros. And I'm pretty sure it does increase end price for all the products as well to deliver from factory to distributor and then to stores. Guess point would be for us as a community to address this to Pokemon company to find the way to lower the cost on their products.

    Interesting. I have the exact opposite.

    Don't really like the design of this box, although I do like the album art.

    It will never happen, but it would be fitting and nuts if that special energy was double dragon energy.

    It'll probably be something lame again like memory energy tho

    Pre-release date is now confirmed, and Pre-Release orders are now up for US, Canada and Puerto Rico.
    Latin America kits will have a different date.

    Pre-Release will be from 5/19 to 5/28.

    Pre-Release Kit will close quite earlier this time (2/7 for some), so, be alert.

    I know people are sick of me complaining but if this isn’t a Unova set, I will blow my brains out

    Killin' it with these multiple color ETB designs! I love how this and the Team Up box look.

    Remember when pulling a holo from a pack meant something?

    I long for simpler sets like that. But it'll never happen. "What's that? Rainbow Rares were a mistake and only make sets more difficult and expensive to complete? Sounds like we need to add a 4th rarity to Tag Team GX's!"

    That's after the set release, as the set comes out 5/3. Did you mean 4/19 to 4/28?

    I think out of all sets in Sun and Moon, this will be THE Set to get. Similar to Lost Thunder. The 25 Trainers worries me having all the new Trainers from various sets because we need reprints of Ultra Ball, Guzma, Nest Ball, Kukui, Acerola, and Max Potion, and etc. I'm mainly concerned about Ultra ball and Guzma, but still, Japan is getting reprints when will we!!

    As far as I'm aware, all the re-prints that's Japan has had the same little lettering next to set the set number to signify rotation time. I can agree with you though, if we don't get re-prints of certain cards sooner or later (Ultra Ball, Nest Ball and DCE primarily) then Ultra Prism on (as I think that's what I think it'll be next format) is going to be a weird format to be a part of...
