‘GX Ultra Shiny’ Coming to America! New Glaceon-GX Tin!

We can announce that a new “Glaceon-GX Tin” will release in America and Europe this fall! There will be other tins releasing with it, but our source has only named Glaceon-GX right now.

The only Glaceon-GX that hasn’t released in English yet is the shiny one from GX Ultra Shiny! This means TPCi will be bringing the set overseas! (Although it was highly unlikely they wouldn’t.) TPCi will likely mark the cards as “A” alternate art cards, meaning they will keep the same set symbol, card number, and legality as the originals.

The placeholder release date for the product is the same as Hidden Fates, meaning the distributors are treating this Glaceon product as part of that line. Because we know Glaceon-GX is from GX Ultra Shiny, we can assume Hidden Fates will be composed of cards from that set.

We’ve also learned that our November set will be SM12, meaning the Sun & Moon block will continue into the fall. This was expected, but it’s nice to have confirmation.

Because the Sun & Moon TCG block will continue into the release of the Sword and Shield games, TPCi will be releasing a Gen 8 “preview” box on November 6th. We don’t know what it will contain yet. Last generation they released an “Alola Collection” in the fall to tie people over until Sun & Moon was released the following February.

Thanks goes to Rass P. for sending us this news!

    So the rest of the year's looking like...
    -Unified Minds: GG End + Sky Legend + Miracle Twin
    -Hidden Fates: GX Ultra Shiny
    -SM12: Remix Bout + whatever the final Japanese SM set will be in September + August subset if there is one (Fairy Rise was 2018's)

    Rust in pieces, Gen 7.

    Guess my Japanese Ultra Shiny cards won't be that special anymore, still psyched that we're getting these even if they are just alternate prints. :)

    Seems like such a waste how they do this as the vast majority of them will be rotating out.. Like the Tapu Lele box, too little too late. Happy for the collectors, but c'mon Pokemon, give the players the pretty cards while they can still play em!

    As expected the GX Ultra Shiny cards will have an A in there collection number. So, many of these cards won't be usable in Standard come August. But I want them for collection purposes. Especially the Umbreon GX and Gardevoir GX Shinys.

    I'm actually glad if these will not be legal when released. A lot of the collector nightmare that is Gen 7's TCG can be traced back to TPCi bending over backwards to provide 8 different tiers of bling for playable cards so players can show off. Cancel it.

    Yeah, Pokemon really only likes to appeal to players and casual fans. That's why with this pain of a gen, I have to wait a while before I start really collecting. Values are all jank because of the metagame and it's kinda irritating. It's the same deal with a lot of Expanded being inflated because of the meta. Computer search would be like, a dollar, if it wasn't for that. I mean, I'm all for them promoting the competitive game. Keep Pokemon alive, and I'm happy that tournaments are getting record numbers, but sometimes the meta can get in the way of my collection. I fear Expanded is never going to rotate and I'm going to have to blow $30-40 on a card I really don't want to blow that much on.

    I would be REALLY glad if Ultra Shiny could be more of a collector's set, kinda like Shining Legends was in a way. It would be a nice change of pace. Haven't felt like there's been many sets like that since prior to Sun and Moon.

    Apart from the Shiny Charizard I doubt it'll be THAT bad. Especially in comparison to some of the really expensive things from Gen 2/Gen 3's TCG. I doubt it'll even be as bad as Black and White with how much they'll probably print it.
