‘Rebel Clash’ Product Images Revealed, Final Nail in Worldwide Theory’s Cofagrigus

Pokemon has officially revealed Rebel Clash and all its product images! This is following last night’s reveal of Japan’s Rebellion Clash set, of which part of our English set will come from.

The theme decks will feature Zacian and Zamazenta. We haven’t seem them in Japan yet, so they presumably come from their Rebellion Clash set.

 

The booster pack promos have all been released in Japan over the past few months.

[C][C] Jaw Lock: 30 damage. During your opponent’s next turn, the Defending Pokemon can’t retreat.

Other Rebel Clash products include its Elite Trainer Box featuring Copperajah V and the typical mini portfolio that comes with a pack.

The set and its above products will release on May 1st.

As expected, Rebel Clash will be a combination of Japan’s VMAX Rising set and its upcoming Rebellion Clash set. The product description for our English set is as follows:

Rock out with new Pokémon! Crank it loud and blast the beat—you’ll find rebellion, chaos, and punk attitude galore in the Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Rebel Clash expansion, loaded with Pokémon V including Toxtricity V, Dubwool V, Boltund V, Sandaconda V, and more! You’ll also find a handful of Pokémon VMAX, including the final Evolutions of all three first partners, plus Copperajah VMAX and Dragapult VMAX. Take to the stage and the streets with the Sword & Shield—Rebel Clash expansion!

The set will include over 190 cards, dozens of recently discovered Pokémon form the Galar region, 15 powerful Pokémon V and 7 enormous Pokémon VMAX, more than 15 Trainer cards, and 4 new Special Energy cards.

The set description indicates it will not include any cards beyond Japan’s Rebellion Clash set, such as from Eruption Walker. This means the slim chance that worldwide releases could have started with our second Sword & Shield set is now dead, putting the final nail in that theory’s coffin. While TPCi could have taken the opportunity to sync our set releases with Japan starting with our first or even second SWSH set, it’s now clear they can’t or don’t want to. But at least our set releases are closer now than ever before!

    Sad that the sets aren't syncing up, seems they could have done it but just don't want to. Also I hope there are more V's in Rebel Clash, right now there are 10 vs 17 from SwSh.

    What's with the ugly color combinations of the new elite trainer boxes? Not a fan.

    That Noctowl promo is good.

    Wow, isn't this the first time in history that a Pokémon that doesn't have a pack art gets featured on the respected set's Elite Trainer Box?

    The dice themselves are exclusive, but if you're talking about how they have the numbers instead of dots on them, that feature was implemented in the SWSH Base Set ETBs.

    ...Copperajah? Really?? Man, I was really hoping for Toxtricity to be on the box over that Pokemon.

    They're something that started in SwSh base, much to my dismay

    Copperajah on the Elite Box cover is a nice surprise.
    Too bad that the good Noctowl is tied to a blister.
    They really must have over printed those Kommo-o coins..

    Man, besides Cosmic Eclipse, recently these boxes have been getting uglier and uglier. Fix the colors! Also, why is the big dye no longer the same color as the smaller dice?

    Did the SWSH ETB come with Basic Fairy Energy? I thought they were done with those...

    Fairy pokemon are still in rotation so I think we will continue to see basic fairy energy until all fairy pokemon rotate out.

    There's supposed to be 4 new special energy in total for Rebel Clash. I'm hoping we get all 8 type-specific special energy before the 5th set of SWSH because I think rotation (typically 4 sets get rotated) eventually leaving in some of the really strong special energy only for a few types would bring about a big imbalance for a long time.

    Nice. Set size seems to be under control. No where near as top heavy as they were getting in SM.

    I guess compared to the SM era it's decently under control-I'm someone who's still stuck in the BW/XY days, anything that's over like, 120 is massive to me, lol.

    Though clearly, the article states it's Copperajah on the ETB, as someone who hasn't played Sword or Shield and hasn't really taken too hard of a look at the new Pokemon and whatever forms they have, I found myself just staring at this image wondering, "What IS that? What am I looking at?"

    I feel old now. Is this what it's like to be a genwunner? :rolleyes:

    Its like an elephant with a India like style. Though this doesn't even look like him at all, cause it has four legs. It looks like a weird mashup of Copperajah and Stonejouner...
