‘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.

    Hopefully they change the design of the full arts with Sword and Shield and make them more similar to XY with designed backgrounds.

    So Arceus will finally appear in its Dragon form. Neat, though I was hoping for an Arceus & Silvally Tag Team with a type-changing gimmick.

    I guess this also confirms Solgaleo & Lunala will be in Dream League. Kind of odd if Ultra Necrozma & Lunala & Solgaleo is also in this set. I suppose they can differentiate them by labeling the trio an Ultra Beast card and use the Solgaleo/Lunala "forms" where they glow and gain a third eye, which have actually never appeared in any TCG art to my knowledge.

    Tag Team Supports

    Option 1 - Like hat ladys, you need more than one copy of the card to pull the better effect or you need the Tag Team support and the regular Red and Blue supports to get the extra

    Option 2 - Like Hala, regular effect and extra effect if you already use your Gx attack or if you already use a Tag Team Gx attack with the extra effect

    So if this is our likely last Sun & Moon expansion set and we're moving on to Sword & Shield, that means Jumbo Cards will become legal for play by February for Dynamaxing right?

    I wish they released sets as often as the Japanese sets... it's so much better to get more specialized packs instead of just shoving everything into one and messing up my odds of getting what I want

    So is there not really going to be anything special about this set? I wonder where the Tag All Star cards will be if they aren't in this set.

    Plus not having a guarenteed rare makes you actually give a crap when you pull a star card

    Yeah if there's one thing the current state of 87 super rares a set needs, it's booster packs with no rares inside at all.

    said no one ever.

    I hope they make a Ho-Oh and Lugia tag team GX in colorless type because both have the type flying
    and for a 4tag team GX with all Tapus in fairy type

    i hope also for more Shiny GX cards and shiny Tag Team GX cards in Tag All Stars.

    This would be the perfect end for the Sun and Moon tcg era.

    Well, we've almost made it to the end. Doesn't feel like we're at the end of anything though, I fear the TCG in sword and shield will be just like this. Pokemon is such a money machine that they'll probably never stop printing a mass amount of sets in japan, just as how Game Freak will never stop rushing their games. I mean I get it, all this stuff exists to make money, but I really wish they'd just slow down a tad. Quality over quantity, and up until the very end of the sun and moon era with Tag teams and the alt arts, this era reeks of quantity, and a huge step down in quality. At least though it picked up by the end. I just hope things go better in sword and shield's TCG, but judging by the games? Good luck to this franchise.

    Ehh, giratina already got its spotlight. I'm glad Arceus is getting some more love. If you compare how much giratina has gotten in recent times to Arceus, giratina gets a lot more in general.
