‘Hidden Fates’ Shiny Pokemon Are Alternate Arts!

TPCi has officially revealed Hidden Fates! The set will contain 68 cards (before secret rares) and 94 “SV” cards.

As predicted, the shiny Pokemon are printed as “A” alternate art cards and are in a subset. This means the legality of the cards won’t reset. The subset is numbered “SV,” which might stand for “shiny version.”

As also predicted, the Team Rocket cards originally from Unified Minds have been moved into this set.

TPCi confirmed there will be a “Hidden Fates Ultra-Premium Collection,” which is likely our American version of Europe’s Hidden Fates Premium Powers Collection. It should come with more goodies than the European version.

The set’s products will begin to release on August 23rd. The “stained glass” Bird Trio card will be available as a promo in the set’s Elite Trainer Box, which releases on September 20th.

    Pulling an Alternate art never felt better. Yay :)

    At least the Cynthia will lower the price of the other full art Cynthia.

    Hella Amazing the stained-glass bird promo is the full-art we're getting. Guaranteed to sell ETBs, hell I'm gonna buy one even though I'm pretty bummed it's mostly "A" alt-arts. It was expected, it just means it'll mostly be a collector set.

    I'm trying to make the setlist. Glaceon GX can't be cut as there wouldn't be enough space between Lucario and Zard

    This is why I only stick to PokeBeach for my news coverage.

    Originally people said we weren't getting GX Ultra Shiny in America. WPM kept saying this would be our set for it. People kept asking how the shiny Pokemon would be handled, WPM kept saying they would have to be alternate art cards or a subset (or both as it turns out). You guys also said the Team Rocket cards would be in this set.

    Basically you guys were spot-on with almost everything. All while never making clickbaity YouTube videos.

    Now I need to get my hands on the Elite Trainer Box for that sweet, sweet promo.

    I posted in a later news story that the Glaceon listing might have been some weird kind of error from the distributor who e-mailed it out. We still don't know yet. The product is supposedly a December release, which is beyond the current reveal schedule of the current Hidden Fates products. So we won't find out for a while.

    This is pretty cool! What does SV stand for? Shiny Version/Variant?
    Hopefully the Shiny cards aren't too rare or expensive... it would be awesome to bling out my Ultra Mally deck.

    I’m happy that the legality of the shiny cards won’t change as this means the cards that are pre ultra prism are purely for collectors.

    Daaaaang that Cynthia tho. Gotta love that art. However, unpopular opinion, I hate the white background for the shiny Pokémon.

    It's interesting that the "stained glass" Moltres, Zapdos & Articuno Tag Team ISN'T an alternate art, it's a SM promo. I wonder why they were inconsistent with this. (It probably doesn't ultimately matter, given, like with the pre-release promos in the past, they'd likely cut off the SM promos to a number corresponding with the first release related to the oldest still-legal set, so if it ended up being Hidden Fates-on, it'd probably be SM210-on, but still weird they did this.)
