English Reshiram & Charizard-GX from ‘Unbroken Bonds’ Revealed!

The first English card from Unbroken Bonds has been revealed — and it’s the set’s mascot, Reshiram & Charizard-GX! TPCi sent the image to IGN to advertise Tag Team cards.

The card is #20/214. The set will feature over 210 cards. It will release on May 3rd as our tenth Sun & Moon series set.

Our Unbroken Bonds set will be a combination of Night Unison‘s 55 cards (released in Japan on January 11th), Full Metal Wall‘s 54 cards (released in Japan on February 1st), and Double Blaze‘s 95 cards (released in Japan on March 1st).

We revealed some of the set’s product images the other day. There are still more to be revealed over the coming weeks.

    Yay! Now I can do my setlist knowing the card numbers.
    214 is the same from lost thunder, but I think with the secret ones we will have more cards than sm8.
    Also, I’m thinking that the FA of the TagTeam will be released as tin.

    I love the set symbol. I don't like the way the text is layered on the name though, it doesn't look right.

    210 cards again. Not liking that at all. Miss sets like Jungle/Fossil that you could actually collect from opening booster packs. No fun in buying loose cards for me.

    The more I see it, the more I like the RA version of Reshizard TTGX over the FA (I usually prefer FA for most GX I play with) - my wallet will probably be happy with that preference, haha.

    ALSO, the ETB sleeves for this set and TEU have been literal fire! I may start to use some of them for play (with over-sleeves ofc because Pokemon center sleeves are horrible for shuffling).

    So... At 20,it means that the grass pokemon should be the ones from FMW, night unison and double blaze. Will we see the TR (trainer reprint rarity) cards in the set or not? Could leave us with a big gap to fill.

    Ah, you stacked one name on top of the other but you indented the second one to make it look cool...
    Hmm... very clever, TPCI!

    I know this is a weird theory, but 55 + 54 + 95 = 114. Does this mean they are making the FAs secret rares in English now? Either that, or this set will omit 28 cards I believe!

    All three sets of Double Blaze, Full Metal Wall and Night Unison have reprints of Trainer cards that the English set will likely skip. Full Metal Wall has 4 (Ultra Ball, Beast Ring, Metal Frying Pan, Acerola), Night Unison also has 4 (Electropower, Enhanced Hammer, Max Potion, Guzma), and Double Blaze has up to 8 (Escape Rope, Ultra Ball, Rare Candy, Pokemon Fan Club, Fiery Flint, Rescue Stretcher, Kiawe, Cynthia) although the latter four have new artwork so they could be reprinted.

    With Unbroken Bonds advertising "over 25 Trainer cards," there's 26 Trainer cards left from these three sets without any of those 16 reprinted ones (and we could get between 0 and 3 of the four reprints with new art from Double Blaze and still fit the description).

    Oh yeah, thanks for pointing that out, I completely forgot about those. That still leaves 8 more cards being omitted though. I wonder if they will be turned into promos somehow or crammed into our August set, which will already probably have even more cards than LT and UB.

    That stacked name is a headache for image-based card fakers, although I guess the folks at TPCi must have tinkered enough with the name text to figure out how illegibly thin the letters would have been putting them in a straight line.

    Greninja & Zoroark with incineroar gx from team up looks scary. Also Lucario & Melmetal maybe a one of in melmetal gx deck for that gx attack. Then play halla to get 7 cards get that gx attack as soon as you can these tag teams all look very competetive
