2020 Holiday Set Confirmed, Includes Missing Sun & Moon Cards!

We can exclusively reveal that America will be getting another holiday set this year!

According to the preliminary information we received, we will see pin boxes and an Elite Trainer Box release on September 18th. On October 2nd, we will get some sort of box collections. On November 1st, we will get a “Premium GX Box.” This information is subject to change.

Although it was expected, the fact one of the products mentions “GX” means we will get the unreleased cards from Japan’s TAG All Stars set (seen below). This is not the first time a holiday set has featured “outdated” cards. In last year’s Hidden Fates set, we received the shiny Pokemon from Japan’s GX Ultra Shiny set, which was released a year earlier in 2018. The same situation would occur here.

It’s likely our holiday set will also be comprised of cards from Japan’s upcoming Legendary Heartbeat set, as our sets are typically made of cards from Japan’s “special” sets. Legendary Heartbeat will feature Legendary and Mythical Pokemon, it’s a movie set, and it’ll feature a new type of rarity called “Amazing Rare.” Japan’s Shining Legends set featured shiny Pokemon and was released to commemorate the 20th movie; it was spun into our Shining Legends holiday set, so I think the same will happen with Legendary Heartbeat.

These are only the initial English products we’ve learned about. Last year’s Hidden Fates saw the release of pin collections, tins, an Elite Trainer Box, Great and Ultra Ball Collections, GX Collections, an Ultra-Premium Collection, and a Premium Powers Collection.

We should have more information about the set in July, including its name and logo. Stay tuned!

    As much as I want to spend as much money as possible on this set I had better not. Hidden Fates decimated my wallet and I almost quit collecting Pokémon because of it. I'm excited that we will be getting all of these cards though.

    That's fun. Lot's of full art Supporters that I'd like to get!

    I had to do research into what the deal was with the alternate arts for Espeon & Deoxys GX and Umbreon & Darkrai GX since I didn't see them in this list. I swore I remembered them getting an English version, but I forgot they were getting boxes that release later this month.

    I wonder if the set will have a chance at the Secret Rare Energies? I know Shining Legends had those cool holo energies but the ones from Japan's Tag Team All Stars had texture!!

    I was really hoping these would make it to the US in the form of a huge promo set like the Premium Trainer's XY Collection. That Reshiram & Charizard GX is going to be ridiculously expensive. D:

    I know I'm replying late to this, but do you think they'll include the Zekrom GX FA and RR we never got?

    Wasn't the Premium Trainer's XY Collection box a massive shelf-warmer for stores? I know that, for me at least, the $99.99 price tag was a major deterrent to picking one up.
    That'd be a hard no from me. The FA and SR prints of Zekrom GX were tournament prizes with the SR print being the prize for an invitation-only event, only 1,000 copies of the FA print and 100 copies of the SR print were ever given out. A similar situation happened with Rayquaza-EX DRX and Giratina-EX DRX where they received limited edition Full-Art versions in Japan, were given out via a promotion, and were never released internationally.

    I don't see them much in stores. I picked one up because it was so much easier and at the time not a bad price to get it all at once. N was worth a lot more back then. Plus it came with all the accessories that are nice to collect. I'd much prefer buying that over trying my luck to unpack a Reshizard or trying to get lucky finding a non-exorbitantly priced one online. Not to mention I have a feeling it's going to be a another set like Hidden Fates where the core of the set is literal trash and the subset cards are mega rare.

    At my LGS they never sold at they sat for so long they got sun bleached

    I suspect that ever with the price of the N and Shaymin in the box most people couldn't justify the 100$ price tag and just bought them as singles instead (which i did personally)
