‘Remix Bout’ Officially Revealed, Features Three Starter Tag Teams!

The booster pack artwork for SM11a Remix Bout has been revealed!

The pack art appears to reveal that the set will feature Tag Teams of Snivy & Venusaur-GX, Braixen & Charizard-GX, and Piplup & Blastoise-GX.

These Tag Teams may be what the name “Remix Bout” is referring to, since the set is taking Starter Pokemon from different generations and combining them.

As posted before, the set will release on July 5th and contain more than 64 cards. Nothing else has been revealed about the set so far.

    I don't mind that Blastoise is getting a Tag Team, but Venusaur and Charizard already had theirs, and them getting a second one is pretty annoying. I would've given the other generations a chance.

    I would have liked Sceptile/Snivy and Blaziken/Braixen, or even Chandelure/Braixen as a homage to Pokken. Blaziken and Sceptile are rather popular starter evolutions too.

    Hope the new grass Tag Team gets more resources to rise and shine. Since they made Reshizard to obliterate PheroBuzz, grass’ suffering a lot of pressure.

    Gen 8 will be worse because they showed that one of the main characters uses a Charizard, so that means we'll get like 50 variants of Leon's Charizard.

    Why Piplup? None of the Gen 5 starters have even been in a single set this Generation, it should be Gen 5 starters getting Tag Teams.

    I'm excited because I like and have a lot of attachment to Piplup, this time around it's got nothing to do with representation of anyone for me. Empoleon is one of my four favorite Pokemon, so of course I'm going to be happy about its pre-evo going on a tag team. I agree with you that the gen 5 starters (and a lot of gen 5) should get some more representation, though. It's just not something that really bothers me in that specific situation.

    I feel like there wouldn't even be so much displeasure at some of the specific pairings if they were just flipped. Delphox & Charmander/eleon, Empoleon & Squirtle, and Surperior & Bulbasaur GXs all keep the same pairings but give us something we haven't seen before.

    But NOOOO, they just HAD to use the Stage 2 forms.
    I’ll stop complaining when you bring back Kadabra.
    But for now, you’re not helping your sort of “equal rights” vibe your anime is giving off.
    So stop it.

    They could still appeal to the Gen 1 fans and give us Fairy and Fighting GXs. I mean, we have tons of pairings ripe for the picking: Hitmonchan & Hitmonlee, Clefable & Togepi, Onix & Geodude....but nope. We get the same Pokemon in just a different form like always.

    Plus they could have added another unused Mega as a Tag Team.

    I'm pretty disappointed by this. Not only did Charizard and Venusaur get their 2nd TTGXs (plus the 2 other Zard GXs from earlier in the year), but they completely missed out on an opportunity to at least give Swampert a GX considering its counterparts got GXs previously. Not that I'm surprised since they already have a track record of completing trio groups (Landorus, Terrakion), but they had a chance to do it and they blew it up again.

    Always remember to temper expectations folks!

    And they neglect random Pokémon too. They could do all Pokémon in a Generation, but no, Charizard and random exclusions like Bellossom and Gallade just drag the whole thing down. Not to mention they only gave 1 neglected Mega a card and left the other alone for my Charizard stuff. :/

    How many more people actually buy sets with Charizard in them over ones that don't? I have a feeling it's Gamefreak telling them what to promote.

    Remember when Registeel got an EX in early BW era, Regirock got one much, much later mid to late XY, and Regice was left in the dust? oof.

    Fighting/Ground Tag Team of Hitmontrio or Kabutops/Omastar would've been great type and nostalgia representation. Alakazam as part of a tag team circumvents the kadabra problem. No Luxray or Absol seems wrong. No Shaymin/Victini/Groudon/Kyogre/Regis is weak. And Terrekion, Swampert, Landrous continue to hold their blank places in my binder. Free Swampert! I've got a few spots saved for Alolan Sandslash and Alolan Dugtrio too. Double Alolan Steel Tag Team anybody!
    Completely agree with others, this was a great opportunity for Johto starters or making this Kanto starters with Serperior, Delphox, & EMPOLEON. So many other great combinations possible too! We really aren't going to get a Solrock/Lunala TagTeam in the SUN &MOON era where TagTeams were created?! Still holding out hope Nidoqueen/Nidoking can happen to promote Sword and Shield era. Love the team concepts and feel it's potential isnt being maximized...ugh

    I know the Fire meta is dominating, but I sincerely hope Snivysuar TTGX is good. It's nice to see some Gen 5 representation in a TTGX (especially considering my favourite starter lineup are the Serps).
