‘Cosmic Eclipse’ Set Logo!

We now have an exclusive image of the Cosmic Eclipse set logo!

The logo seems to draw from the original Sun & Moon set logo, probably because this will be the last set of the series.

As posted the other day:

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.

    Nice little detail that the colors on Cosmic Eclipse are switched from Sun and Moon's logo. It's like we're at the end of a long long day that is the sun and moon era.

    I'm pretty relieved honestly. At least, as long as SwSh's tcg is an improvement to the sun and moon one. I've been waiting for a bit of a switch to the formula, especially with the style of ultra rares. Tag Teams were a step in the right direction though, I'll miss those if they get rid of them.

    I have a feeling that the Blue is going to be like the evolutions ETBs. It's gonna be a really nice color scheme to finish the Sun and Moon block off.

    The fact that all they did with the full arts and hyper rares is slap a colored background on it was quite depressing in my opinion. The Secret rare stadiums though were quite a nice addition.

    I would say I'm excited that SM is ending but Swish's TCG will probably be a similar repackaging of the same 80 ultra rares per set. lol We've only gone up in chase cards since Gen 5 began.

    Do you think we will get 2 ETBs like evolutions, SM base and ultra prism?

    Sun & Moon was a cool era. When the first Tag Teams were announced I was actually pretty against them, but seeing them in action I actually grew to like them.

    I hope Tag Teams get some love for a few more sets, partially because Tag Teams have brought some of the best art I've ever seen in the TCG. In fact, I'd be completely okay if they decided to just not move on from GX, but I really don't think that'll be the case based on the TCG's history.

    I'm honestly glad this will probably be the last SM set. It was a very good era and made some very good memories (and some bad ones too), but at this point I'm getting tired of the same stuff every single set. I'm getting more and more excited for the Sword Shield era as the new Pokémon are revealed. I'm thinking they will make Dynamax (maybe DX?) the ultra rares for SS. Hopefully they will improve the ultra rares and especially SRs and RRs.

    I mean i don't see why not since it is the last set in the SM block.
    I also hope that TPCI Will lower the ultra rare count and overall card count in each set as it is a nightmare trying to pull anything.

    It's like the sun and moon logo but the sun and the moon are both in an eclipse.
    So simple yet so elegant.

    SR Stadiums would have been nicer if they weren't covered in gold borders. I love the idea, but they just kinda looked cheap. Something more like Parallel City would be PERFECT for a Full Art stadium.

    Honestly, if we went back to the amount of chase cards in Gen 5, without the horrible pull rates, I'd be fine with it. Even gen 6, since at least those sets felt DOABLE. Plus, I think the sheer amount of ultras that they have to do took a huge hit on the quality of ultra rares, pre-Tag Team era. Compare any full art GX to the full arts from Black and White. It's night and day.

    Less is more. And more relief to my wallet, let's be honest.

    I don't mind regular SM full arts (probably a hot take? but I really like the uniform type-related solid backgrounds, although not enough to keep it around forever), but the rainbow rares are ugly and gotta go. Very few people actually prefer them over the non-rainbow versions divorced from them having more "rarity" or "value." I don't even like them and I'm walking rainbow vomit myself.

    Absolutely my favorite of the s&m era, hopefully the set will live up to it's expectations so we can end on a high note

    The uniformity is actually something I appreciate about them, even if sometimes I prefer the detailed backgrounds. Once I start really collecting sun and moon (I've only really bought the non-rainbow charizards and whatever I pull from the rare times I open packs, amiibo and finishing up older sets is my jam right now), I plan on ordering the full arts by type in order of release, just as I did with the RA EX cards.

    My only complaint is that some of the renders of the Pokemon themselves can be hit-or-miss (I much prefer say, Charizard EX's full art to the GX in terms of the model), but there's some like Buzzmosa, regular Buzz, or the new Celesteela that are really fantastic. The way the light shines on them is quite appealing as well, on top of a solid foil pattern that I quite like makes for a pretty decent ultra rare.

    I'm sure you and I both know that we agree that RRs have to go. Sure it was fun the first time I got one, but now I don't even put mine that I've pulled in a binder, I just topload them and stick them in a box because I'd rather use that room for something way more appealing.

    If they just did it for, say, the Necrozma forms (because prisms and all), it'd be fine. A cool little niche ultra, like the gold Reshiram and Zekrom, or the silver dialga. But for EVERYTHING? It honestly saddens me that they created something out of a main set I don't want to collect. I'm a super completionist, so that's saying something if something is that unappealing.

    I too am a super completionist and I've completed every SM set through Dragon Majesty, including the rainbow rares. Which makes it doubly confusing to me that PCL thinks that pages and pages of this

    [​IMG]

    are appealing to any collector. Like yes, such glitter, very prism implosion, wow. It's busy and the cards don't even look that great unless you literally flash mob them, but then all the colors are going in 20 different directions and it justs look like glitter puke.

    Yeah. I think we'll either get DX cards or DYNAMAX cards. Besides, being limited to two moves and a one-time use move is not something any gane should have for long

    Not to mention, perhaps because I just woke up, but some of the pokemon in those are beyond recognition. I couldn't tell Tauros was Tauros. Not only that, but I can't justify spending the price on some of those gold items. I could with XY, most of them are rotated and there's a combined total of eight of them, not a big deal at all. BW had even less, it was fine. But there's just too many and while they're okay for what they are, and have a niche for certain people, the only time I ever wanted them was on TCGO for my Buzzwole deck.

    Apologies for my camera quality, I have a terrible phone. but I actually wanted to do a head-on comparison to these. I love how the full art just looks so much sleeker and cleaner than the hyper rare. It's like they sucked all the fun out of it. With something like the gold XY full arts, those felt like they had a purpose, but I really have to ask what the deal with Sun and Moon's were. It's just something I can never see is necessary, because we all know these sets would fly off the shelves anyways. Why not something even MORE appealing that would make people want to own them? Rather than just want the FA's. Back before I gave away my collection on TCGO, I always made sure my decks used the Full Arts over the RR's. I remember purposely downgrading a few cards, sometimes even for free.

    But you know what's funny? There's one card that does the whole rainbow idea better, and it isn't even a rainbow rare.

    Isn't it fantastic how much more vibrant and appealing it is than it's rainbow successor?

    It's so sad how this is the last Sun and Moon set. But There's much more potential for the future!!
