‘Rebel Clash’ Prerelease Promos Revealed, Available Early at Retailers

The prerelease promos for Rebel Clash have been revealed!

    Nobody is allowed out though and all gaming and card shops should be closed as they’re not essential businesses.

    Although it’d be good to know which specific shops are getting them.

    Most shops that held prereleases were card shops

    I was really hoping they would throw in something special with this. Probably same cost as the events but no participation packs.

    The kits should be ~$5 less than what you'd pay for the event; depending on where you buy them you can probably get up to $10 off.

    You ever heard of online shopping?

    Compared to what was in SWSH, these are pretty mediocre. And there is nothing wrong with that - this set is going to have some nice balanced sealed gameplay!

    Coalossal could be good. Not Malamar-good, but maybe in the ballpark.

    I would assume participation packs would come with prerelease purchases, honestly. They come in the kits. Don't see why they wouldn't be given out. Not sure if that'll be a store-by-store decision or decided by TCPI and disseminated, to all... but it really is how it should be.

    Where online though? We still don’t know which specific retailers are getting them

    A lot of card shops sell through tcgplayer! So we should be able to order them through there

    Wherever you went for prereleases in the past would be the first place to check. Most of those stores likely will still get some, if they're able to do mail/delivery business.

    Based on my partial set list, Rebel Clash will be likely adding either Eiscue V or Pincurchin V as the 15th Pokemon V missing, since this set has 15 Vs

    well rillaboom decks just got a confirmed buff and i have a friend who plays it and is really happy cuz now he can 1HKO zacian with a vitality band

    Seems like Rillaboom Vmax can now 1HKO it without any special help, since Zacian has only 220 hp (250 effective vs grass)... costs three energy, so it's expensive, though.

    Bigger problem seems to me that fire is still a thing...
