‘Tag All Stars’ Trademark Filed, Likely a Huge Upcoming Set!

Pokemon has filed a trademark for Tag All Stars in a legal category they’ve use for set names in the past. Over the years the names of many Japanese sets have been discovered through trademark filings, most recently in the cases of GX Ultra Shiny and Miracle Twins.

The trademarks are usually discovered around half a year before the set releases. The filing for Ultra Shiny was first discovered on April 20th, 2018; GX Ultra Shiny was released seven months later on November 2nd, 2018. The trademark for Miracle Twins was discovered on November 27th, 2018; the set will release on May 31st, 2019, or six months after the initial trademark listing.

Therefore, Tag All Stars will likely be Japan’s fall set in October or November and finish off the Sun & Moon series. The first Sword & Shield series set should release in Japan in December and then in America in February. This is based on past release patterns, so we’ll see if it holds true again this generation.

The set name implies it could be another reprint set like The Best of XY, GX Battle Boost, etc. If so, it’ll likely feature a bunch of reprinted Tag Team Pokemon. If they want to go out with a bang, they could feature new artwork or even be shiny versions like in GX Ultra Shiny. We’ll see!

ICYMI, on a related note, worldwide card legality seems to be on the horizon as well.

    "Why don't we make cards with 5 different artworks and 2 (maybe 3) Pokemon on them. Let's have them have like 250 HP and make them give up 3 prizes when they don't get potioned back to life after they get hit. Then, let's give them overpowered GX attacks that require like 8 energy."

    Makes me think cool Legendary Treasures-type reprint set, but then I realize. We won't ever get that kind of set, Japan's going to have another three sets worth of cards that we'll get instead, making for a thematically botched final Sun and Moon set. Don't you just LOVE gen 7?

    Well, our November set would be presumably Remix Bout + whatever new things this set provides (if any), since Unified Minds will be GG End + Sky Legend + Miracle Twin, and that's all of the Japanese releases we know so far. I also guess if this is a reprint set, Remix Bout will be all new?

    I'm assuming Remix Bout is all new. We very well COULD have a reprint set though, in the yearly special set we've gotten for the last few years. I'd guess Ultra Shiny would be our special set of the year but that's just me personally.

    Remix will most likly be our special holidays set in october. Tag all stars sound like a reprint set like shiny set last year which we wont get.

    If we even get a special set this year, and we still don't know if we will, I'd guess we'd get the 100ish cut shiny reprints from GX Ultra Shiny over the 50-60ish cards of whatever Remix Bout is gonna be.

    I know Ultra Ball is probably rotating, but maybe we could see it in the special October set??? We can always hope!

    Pokemon is going to kill their card game if they don't slow down.

    Japan gets hundreds of reprints that we don't get, so I wouldn't worry. For example, the Gold Tapu's, the shiny GXs

    Japan actually does reprint sets like this quite often; usually 2-3 times in a block depending on how big the block is.

    However, very seldom does the West get more than a few cards from these sets, if we get any at all. In the case of GX Ultra Shiny, we got the new cards from that set, but none of the reprints and (so far) none of the shiny cards.
