Several Cards Revealed from Family Box Set, Changes to Trainer Cards!

A few cards have been revealed from the upcoming Pokemon TCG Family Box set. It will release on March 15th.

None of our translators are currently online, but the cards are pretty simple; they’re not meant to be competitive since the set is meant to teach kids and their families how to play. The Pokemon-GX from the set were previously revealed and don’t feature many attack effects.

Other cards that will come in the set include the Butterfree line, Pikachu, Magmar, Mr. Mime, and the Salazzle line.

It’s unknown when we will get these cards outside Japan.

This box set will be the first to feature Trainer cards that have “Trainer’s” written in Japanese. The card text will also be larger. This is probably to make it easier for children to read the cards.

    While this set is not competitive, there are some nice Basic Pokémon options there. 130HP Chansey sticks out to me personally since I'm playing with Lost Thunder Blissey. 100HP Scyther is nice too, I don't think Scyther has ever had more than 80HP ever prior to this, not even Scyther ex lol.

    It's kinda funny that it's actually possible to power up that charizard in no time now.

    All the non-GX cards will probably be inserted into a random English set and the GX Pokemon will probably be bunched together in a random box with one of them (probably Charizard or Mewtwo) getting a jumbo card version and a couple random booster packs (probably including a pack or two of evolutions or steam siege).

    That or they might be released in this exact same family box format but I doubt it.

    Hope they put these into a random English set, most of the artwork is actually really nice for filler instead of being some intern slapping stock art on a background they found on Google.
