‘Cosmic Eclipse,’ November’s English Set!
The name of our English SM12 set will be Cosmic Eclipse! It’ll release on November 1st.
The set will feature Tag Team cards of Venusaur & Snivy-GX, Braixen & Charizard-GX, Blastoise & Piplup-GX, Solgaleo & Lunala-GX, and a Tag Team trio of Dialga & Palkia & Arceus-GX (which will also be what the set’s Elite Trainer Box is themed after).
While Dialga and Palkia share the Dragon-type, Arceus is a Normal-type Pokemon. Up until now Tag Team Pokemon have always shared the same type. Perhaps Arceus will appear with its Draco Plate to make it Dragon-type?
The set will feature over 230 cards, including nine new Tag Team Pokemon-GX, seven more regular Pokemon-GX, the first Tag Team Supporter cards, more than 20 Trainer cards, and a new Special Energy card (Draw Energy from Remix Bout).
We already know one Tag Team Supporter will be Red & Blue from Alter Genesis. As posted before, “The Supporter will work like a Tag Team’s GX attack where you have a regular effect and then a stronger secondary effect if additional conditions are met.”
We’d previously reported we’d be getting a Solgaleo & Lunala & Ultra Necrozma-GX in Alter Genesis. That information came from the set’s official sell sheet, so we’re not sure if there was some kind of error or if Alter Genesis will feature two Tag Team trios.
Our English Cosmic Eclipse set will be a combination of cards from Japan’s SM11a Remix Bout, SM11b Dream League, and SM12 Alter Genesis (64 cards + 49 cards + 95 cards before secret rares = 208 cards).
This will likely be our last Sun & Moon set. Japan should get its first Sword & Shield series set in December, which we’ll then get in February 2020.
