Japan’s March Set: ‘Rebellion Crash,’ Plus Toxtricity V, Charizard VMAX, Grimmsnarl VMAX!

Japan’s March set will be named Rebellion Crash. It will contain 96 cards, excluding secret rares, and release on March 6th. No further information is known at this time.

On the same day, Japan will get a “Rebellious Crash Special Set” featuring Toxtricity! The box will come with a Toxtricity V promo card, seven packs of Rebellious Crash, a metal can case featuring special artwork, a Special Energy card, and 14 Lightning Energy. It will cost 1,650 yen. Since it includes Lightning Energy, Toxtricity V will likely be Lightning-type.

Since we haven’t had a Charizard card in days, on March 27th, Japan will get two “Sword & Shield Starter Sets” featuring Charizard VMAX and Grimmsnarl VMAX! Each package will include a 60-card deck and the usual trimmings of a deck release. They will retail for 1,711 yen each. Since each deck features a VMAX, this means they will also include Charizard V and Grimmsnarl V.

All of these March Rebellious Crash products are following the release of Japan’s VMAX Rising set in February. This means Japan will likely be returning to its monthly release schedule this spring. I previously theorized that Japan is temporarily delaying their monthly set releases so we can catch up with them and have synced worldwide releases starting next year.

Update: Added dummy images. The images confirm Rebellious Crash will be Japan’s S2 set and will feature Toxtricity as its mascot. The set will also see the release of deck boxes and sleeves, like every set.

    Nice, Toxtricity and Grimmsnarl are two of my favorites this gen. Still waiting on Hatterene, though...

    (Also wow, Charizard's V-MAX going in a deck? That's something I didn't expect to see. I figured they'd make it a main set thing, but hey I'm not complaining. Here's hoping for some good artwork on them all).

    The Q is... are these Vs Basic Pokémon because if they're not, Things like Charizard will be straight up unplayable because its Stage 3.

    That's assuming that Pokemon-V who are evolved Pokemon are all going to be Basics. Every Pokemon-V we've gotten so far doesn't evolve into anything and I'm pretty sure they haven't stated that all Pokemon-V are basics yet, so it's not quite safe to assume that the fully evolved ones are going to be Basics quite yet. We'll see when VMAX Rising comes out I guess. I can see it making sense either way, and it's probably going to go the way you mention it going, as it makes sense from a gameplay standpoint(going up to essentially stage 3 would be rough for a lot of Pokemon if they ended up doing this), but Pokemon isn't predictable, so I'm still holding out to see which way it goes.

    These three are all in my top five Gigantamax 'mons this gen. Excited to see them in card form.

    EDIT: Just realized it doesn't actually say anything about Toxtricity VMAX. Shame.

    Gigantamax Toxtricity isn't officially revealed yet AFAIK so I imagine that's why Toxtricity VMAX isn't mentioned.

    Though I wonder if it means that Gigantamax Toxtricity will become available around the same time as the set releases.

    Toxtricity is one of those new pokes that I hated at first, but now love. There's something about him that is dorky and lovable, beneath his "I'm trying really hard to look cool" exterior.

    And despite the backlash from fans about Gigantamax Charizard (mainly because Blastoise and Venusaur just don't exist yet), I still really like the design and would like to collect him.

    Also, if it's true that we are going to be syncing up with Japan's releases, that is hype as hell. Takes a lot of the fun out of a set when you know what's coming. Edit: Seems I misunderstood this and we're going back to having a big delay gap.

    I think he might be my favorite Pokémon this entire generation (him and Hatterene). The second I saw him during the leak cycle I fell in love, I just loved that smug look and the design. His ability also looks really fun too. He’s totally dorky but there’s also this really cool look it has, kinda gives me Garchomp vibes in a weird way. A lot of gen 8s designs I really love honestly, they really stepped it up this time around and it’s SwSh’s only real saving grace.

    So we're going back to having cards announced 4 months ahead of the west, and released 2/3 months ahead? Kinda sucky.

    I roasted the hell out of the games, but at the end of the day I still picked up Shield because I just really loved some of the new designs. Most of them are absolutely on-point with the only true "miss" for me being Blipbug, and the fact that we only got 3 legends. I also happen to love pretty much all of the Gigantamax forms although I sympathize with the people who are angry at Megas being dead (they should have seen this coming, though).

    Sorry for the awkward ping here, but what does Japan's return to its' monthly schedule mean? Were they simply delaying their products so that the West could catch up a little bit? Does your theory about Western releases happening on the same day as the last of the Japanese releases for the combined set still hold, erm...water?

    SUPER EXCITED FOR TOXTRICITY-VMAX <3 it's my favorite Gigantamax form ahhhhh

    Other than that, pretty surprising Charizard VMAX isn't the set mascot O: I assume this means that the FA Charziard/Grimmsnarl-V and Rainbow Charizard/Grimmsnarl-VMAX cards will be in the main set, along with probably Leon FA and maybe Sonia FA? I hope it'll be like that at least lol

    The new cards are very nice but it somehow makes me anxious that they're returning to monthly releases again after February. I was hoping they'd slow down a bit.

    They've been releasing monthly sets for a long time, but stopped with this new generation. So far the theory is that this is because they're letting us play catch up, which would happen in February when our first SwSh set releases. Now as we can see, starting in February in Japan, they're going to have monthly releases again it seems. So yes, the theory has been holding water to the letter.

    There's no way we're getting synced card releases because the 17 V cards mentioned in the Sword and Shield TCG page are all accounted for in the V-Starter Sets and the japanese Sword and Shield set, same for the 4 V-Max Pokemon.
