Mewtwo-GX from ‘Hidden Fates,’ Clearer Images of Pin Collections!

Pokemon has officially revealed Mewtwo-GX from Hidden Fates. It is card #31/68.

As posted before, our Hidden Fates set will contain cards from Japan’s Pokemon TCG Family Box and GX Ultra Shiny.

Hidden Fates products will begin to hit store shelves in America and Europe on August 23rd with the release of the Mew and Mewtwo Pin Collections.

Thanks to clearer product images, it’s now been confirmed that the promos in the two pin collections are alternate art promo reprints of the Mew and Mewtwo from Unbroken Bonds, as some readers expected.

 

Also revealed was a large image of shiny Mewtwo from the set’s booster pack:

    I know they won't do it because the two cards are rare tournament prizes in Japan, but I wish they'd give us the new Mewtwo Full Art prints in this set since they're reprints of this particular Mewtwo GX....

    Yeah, I hate it when they make them easier to collect. That's the worst!

    The pack arts are looking pretty nice this time. It will be a nice set to just take a break from the whole rush of competitive scene.

    Gx attack is ok, I guess? Would rather just KO something to be honest, outclassed by sigilyph Gx in just about every way I feel

    None of the regular nor GX cards in the main Hidden Fates expansion are gonna be good because the main source of cards is the introductory Family Box set. So check all expectations now. lol

    So if there are 37 family box set cards ( not including the reprinted trainers) minus the 3 GXs supposedly coming out in tins, the 2 non-secret rare Birds trio cards, and the 5 team rockets cards, what makes up the other 27 cards? if the trainers from the family box set are in this, then what are the other 13?

    Honestly, I'm so happy the family box cards are in this set because it's part of what makes Hidden Fates so exciting for me. It's, in a way, kinda like collecting old cards. You don't care about the competitive value of them, it's purely about collecting. I know the majority of people here judge cards based on their playability, and that's mainly what the TCG in recent times I feel has cared mostly about. So having a set that's so good for collectors just makes me happy.

    I love the family box GXs since they're simple, yet appealing ultra rares. I know they're not very fancy in terms of art, but it probably has my favorite Charizard render of the entire era (keyword RENDER, I still think Reshizard is the best looking one in the era period, if not my favorite card of Sun and moon). I love the simplicity of that Mewtwo, too. It's a neat little card of Mewtwo, nothing more, nothing less, and honestly? It's a breath of fresh air for once.

    That plus the entire Shiny set just makes me so excited. It's not even out yet and this is the best Sun and Moon set by far. My only hope is for there to be good pull rates to justify the mass amount of ultras. Maybe they'll do a special pack configuration a la Legendary Treasures (which this set reminds me of, and that's a HUGE plus) or Generations.

    My gut is it's gonna have to be a Legendary Treasures/Generations scenario where we get 1-2 of the SV cards per pack (there's 45 cards from Ultra Shiny that aren't GX or full art, so about half the SV set), the shiny subset is bigger than the main set. Like, TPCi is crazy but are they that crazy? lol

    Something like that would be pretty good, as long as they don't compromise the texturing of the non-GX SV cards I really don't mind if they're one or two a pack.

    IIRC, legendary treasures was 1 Reverse or Holo, 1 Rare/EX, and then 2 radiant cards, one either being an uncommon or an Ultra Rare. I could see something similar to that, except it would be one Reverse, 1 Rare/normal set GX, and then 2 SV cards or something, one of which is always a more common one. That's just hopeful speculation on my end though, TPCi could be totally wack and make pull rates totally jank (god forbid).

    My guess:
    -38 Pokemon from Family Box
    -At least some of the Trainers from the Family set, since beginner-level Trainers like Potion, Great Ball and Catcher are being rotated out otherwise; many of the other Trainers will be in the rotation still anyway (e.g. Cynthia, Judge, Candy, Crushing Hammer); and SM-era Pokemon Center Lady and Bug Catcher are still JP-only.
    -8 Pokemon from Sky Legends (Dwebble, Crustle, Hoothoot, Noctowl, Ekans, Arbok, Koffing, Weezing - the first four for featuring Molt/Arti in their backgrounds)
    -3 Legendary Birds GX prints (one being a secret rare)
    -2 Trainers from Sky Legends (both Jessie and James prints)
    -1 Giovanni's Exile FA
    -Random SM-P promos to hit 68 cards.

    I think that is reasonable & realistic. Imagine pulling a hyper rare bird trio as your rare and then one of the gold cards as your rare SV...hopefully that is a possibility.

    Two-ultra rare packs back in generations and legendary treasures were always some of the most fond memories I have of them, one of the earliest LTR packs I opened when I was still relatively new to the TCG had that, and I was so excited. Really hoping they can do that again, especially with the sheer size of this set.
