‘Hidden Fates Poke Ball Collections’ Featuring Shiny Zoroark and Metagross-GX!

Two new “Hidden Fates Poke Ball Collections” will release in America and Europe on October 4th!

Each collection will come with either a shiny Zoroark-GX or a shiny Metagross-GX, ten Hidden Fates booster packs, a Great Ball that can hold a stack of Pokemon cards, and a PTCGO code card.

The Poke Ball will probably be of the same design as the one released in the Pikachu & Eevee Poke Ball Collection.

We still don’t know how TPCi is going to handle the legality of the reprinted Pokemon-GX from Hidden Fates, but these collections would be the perfect opportunity to make Zororark-GX and Metagross-GX “A” alternate art promos so their legality does not reset.

    I mean, honestly, they would need to go so out of their way just to reset the legality of the reprinted cards that they won't even bother and will probably make them promos, and say in the rotation page "Hidden Fate promos are not playable if their counterpart is not legal" a la McDonalds Eevee.

    That probably confirms that they're gonna be Alt Arts. I'm sure Pokemon with how they've been with rotation and legality as of the last few years were going to do it anyways.

    But I don't really care about that, I care that there's 10 whole packs inside these things. I'm sold.

    They’re doing this many packs of cards in products because this mini set is near enough the same size as forbidden light which is a main set. I’m gonna say these will be worth £/$34.99/39.99 upon release

    Probably a stupid question, but does this mean they won't be in Hidden Fates?

    Yeah, probably. I'm assuming it's the same deal as other products that took cards out of sets, like the SL Zoro/Raichu ones.

    Oh this is awkward, I had just gotten a shiny Metagross-GX in Japan thinking I would never get it in English and well here we are...

    You do realize that doing it that way is FAR.more out of the way than making them Yellow "A" promos? The reason they had to do that with EEvvee is those McDonald's sets had their own unique set numbers, instead of being Yellow "A"'s or just straight up reprints, like those in the cereal packs.

    The same TPCi, you say, as the one who is known for missing such obvious opportunities?

    That's the question. It's very strange that there's 10 packs of it in one of these. I'm hoping that they're in the $30 range, but with the ETB having 10 and likely being 50... I'm thinking it'd have to be somewhere in between that.

    Ten packs nice. Also Shiney Metagross is really cool that is a plus.

    It all depends on how much dividers, sleeves, dice and energy set cost that we need to subtract from 50

    I'm assuming these are going to retail for the upwards of $80-90 CAD since it has 10 packs. The Pikachu and Eevee retailed for $35 CAD and only had 4 packs.

    Wow, this is interesting. You get a Shiny GX card and 10 packs!? This will definitely be pricey; but worth it.

    Wish i could have pulled a full art zoroark in my lifetime but both shining legends and now hidden fates have stolen that from me :'(
    I wish theyd put the non full art versions in box sets for accessibility while still preserving the specialness of the full art pulls

    I'm thinking it's going to be around or slightly less than what the ETB is going for. Same amount of packs and a similar amount of accessories leads me to believe this. (Though the ball collections have less in terms of accessories, which is why it could go for slightly less).
