‘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.

    Calling it now: Abandoned Power Plant will be the most influential are in the set.

    It will also turn Expanded into a bloody madhouse.

    As an Expanded-only player, I welcome the chaos.

    Might actually be the nail in the coffin for Zoroark/Exodia. Not only do they need the coin toss to go first and fight against their own consistency, but now hey have to worry about an opponent going first and getting set up with Abandoned Power Plant and completely tanking them. Unless the Exodia player has a Field Blower or Sky Field in Hand, they are toast

    I hear you. Packs are so expensive in the UK and the bulk is phenomenal. The cards are really nice when you pull them but the pull rates are so low that you'd have to buy two or three booster boxes to get a full set (if you're lucky). I don't have that cash, how are kids (it was designed as a kid's game)? Pokémon, stop slaughtering your golden goose!

    Sorry Ho-Oh GX...

    Quite basic

    This card is REALLY bad. Like almost all Charizard cards, the attack cost is too much for it to be viable. Sure, Outrage is nice, but do I really want to use Outrage with a 3-prizer?

    Kiawe leaving Ho-Oh GX for Reshiram/Charizard Tag Team GX. Kinda like that Meme of a guy walking with his girlfriend (Ho-Oh) and looking back liking the new Reshiram/Charizard.
  12. DarkMatterGaming "Wait, he's not dead?"


    Its... okay? I guess?

    Honestly its kind of tame compared to all the other Tag Teams we've seen up to this point.

    OH NO. It’s sure to be another broken Charizard, this time on a Basic...
    Well, it does hit gigantic numbers with Mount Lanakila, Buff Padding, and Outrage. Zoroark hitting for 150? Congrats, we just OHKO’d them with Band. P&Z doing 180? 210 back. Blacephalon doing 300? 360 back at them.
    The problem is, the cost is [R][C] and not [C][C]. It’s a decent attack.
    Flare Strike is pretty mundane, but with Silvally-GX/Dawn Wings-GX, it can attack turn after turn for 260, more with Lurantis.
    The GX attack is hilariously unoriginal, but 300 in a pinch isn’t the worst.

    Overall, I’m glad we have a “contender” Charizard & Reshiram GX rather than a “game-breaking” Charizard & Reshiram GX.

    Seems pretty nuts with Kiawe honestly.

    It's just a lot of energy to commit in order to hit 300. The gx attack could be a lot more interesting. Will people just swap this card out for Ho-oh?

    • Charizard & Reshiram TTGX - having good basics for Chariram is nice especially Water decks are not as widely played. Maybe Kyurem from Unbroken Bonds with its infinite paralysis strat? Quagsire also? Nah! The first atk is a revenge atk. Because you have 270 HP, you can't KO easily so you can retaliate some damage there. The 2nd atk is spammable with Kiawe, come on! 230 KOs any regular GXs but with a Choice Band, Pikarom and Sylvoir goes down. The GX atk also KOs Magikwail in an instant. The problem is.. the energy accel is not enough. Kiawe ends your turn, Naganadel strat won't work because... Card Burning! You can easily pull Kiawe for the 2nd atk but the GX atk falls it short. 4 Geodudes

    First attack is cute because of the bulkiness of TTGXes in general but other than that this is even worse than Latios&Latias TT.

    People thought that Kiawe and Ho-oh would be busted back when Ho-oh was able to hit good numbers with CB and look how good that deck was...And we even had Volcanion-EX back then.

    Playability wise it’ll just be a kiawe beatstick

    Collectability wise collectors are already crossing their fingers that the hyper rare will not be insanity like charizard gx from burning shadows

    FINALLY! Been waiting on this card for weeks. Was really hoping it would be better, but seems ok I guess and is definitely not the worst tag team we have seen. Honestly, not sure what it pairs best with but Flareon GX does seem like a decent option.

    I was hoping for this card to be something crazy and exciting but it's literally just a bigger Ho-oh GX L O L

    I expected nothing and was still disappointed.
