First TCG Cards of Grookey, Sobble, Scorbunny, Zacian V, Zamazenta V!

The Pokemon Company has sent us the first cards images of Grookey, Sobble, Scorbunny, Zacian V, and Zamazenta V! They will all be featured in upcoming Galar Collections, which will release on November 15th!

(Zacian V and Zamazenta V are incomplete card images because Pokemon doesn’t want to spoil their types or the new Pokemon V mechanic.)

  

Each Galar Collection will come with one of three promo cards showcasing Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble. In addition, each box includes a matching collector’s pin, one oversize card featuring Zacian or Zamazenta as brand-new Pokemon V, and four booster packs.

    Will get one of each. I hope they have 3 Cosmic Eclipse and 1 Unified Minds in them.

    Glad we've evolved past the dark days of 5ban illustrating every new Pokemon's first card. <3

    The white-outlined energy icons will take a while getting used to, but nice design! I like the V on the top left!

    I won't get the boxes though due to the evolutions pack in this box. Hard pass.

    Are they SERIOUSLY PUTTING THE COPYRIGHT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CARD NOW LIKE JAPAN?

    Some interesting changes to the card formatting, a slightly different Weakness/Resistance area, the copyright on the bottom border, and the new look for energy symbols. I'm glad it's pretty much consistent with Sun and Moon's otherwise-the Pokemon from that era who need cards still will fit right into a modern-SM on Pokedex collection just fine.

    I'm pretty big on the way Pokemon-V look. The black borders are clean, they look great. Can't wait to see what this era has in store... Just no rainbow rares please.

    Oh cool, the boxes have an Evolutions pack... SERIOUSLY, how many packs did they print to have to keep plopping them into sets THREE YEARS after the fact? o_o

    That aside, I'm digging the look of the V cards. Also noticed that the copyright information at the bottom of the cards has been expanded upon to be in line with the Japanese cards... makes me wonder if they'll update the card backings too?

    I doubt it, honestly if we're keeping the yellow borders. At least, I'd hope we keep the English backings, I like them and the consistency for the past 20something years.

    The promo set numbering looks really ugly

    That's true, I mean look at Yu-Gi-Oh cards - nearly 20 years later and they've still got the late 90's Konami logo on em, alongside the original TCG logo.

    "SWSH" as an abbreviation looks pretty dumb... but I guess they want to avoid Nazis.

    Sobble being weak to lightning is interesting, I like it.

    Sobble is weak to lightning huh? So that means his final evo must have a type that makes it take neutral damage from grass. The leaks about Intelleon were accurate, so it must probably be a poison type.

    You don’t need to buy all 6 boxes to get all the cards you just need to buy the right combination

    Did you seriously dig an e-reader era card to try and counter my theory?

    Most grass neutral pokemon these days have electric weakness. Ludicolo, Mantine, about 90% of Kingdra versions (with the only exception I know of being BUS Kingdra), the Empoleon line, etc.

    The only consistent exception are Grass/Bug pokemon, and apparently grass/poison in the sm era (Tentacruel was lightning weak until SM made it grass weak).

    Also, as revealed by TPCi press release back in June, Sobble has tears as potent as 100 onions.

    Final stage is going to be Water/Poison, I can bet on it.
