‘Darkness Ablaze’ Flareon and Eevee Promo Blister Packs!

The Darkness Ablaze three-pack blisters will feature new promos of Flareon and Eevee! They are SWSH041 and SWSH042, respectively.

The cards come from Japan’s last round of Gym tournament promos:

Eevee – Colorless – HP60
Basic Pokemon

[C] Signs of Evolution: Search your deck for a Pokemon that evolves from Eevee, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.

[C][C] Kick Attack: 30 damage. Flip a coin. If tails, this attack does nothing.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1


Flareon – Fire – HP110
Stage 1 – Evolves from Eevee

[R] Singe: Your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Burned.

[R][R][C] Kindle: 120 damage. Discard an Energy from this Pokemon. Then, discard an Energy from your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

Weakness: Water (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2

The other day we posted the first images of Darkness Ablaze products, but we were missing a couple. We are still missing the booster box and Elite Trainer Box images. Stay tuned!

    Yikes, doesn't compare to the 'other' eevee, it's an attack and doesn't evolve that turn, it should at least do the latter.

    Only good thing coming from this is we now have confirmation that Eternatus is the last pack art.

    Target.com B1G1HalfOff. Imagine buying 2 PikaRom decks for $42 after tax and shipping included? Damn

    Also, what's Shadow Obelisk the Tormentor doing in a pack art?

    I actually thought that those two will be in the expansion.
    Too bad they won't be in.

    He more than likely means original promos, a card getting its first and usually only outing.

    There's Mew V in the set, but not on the packs? And Galarian Slowbro V? We're sure they won't be in a separate product, during the "Darkness Ablaze" window?

    So we are getting 4 Pokémon V and 2 VMAX cards cut. Any guesses?

    Since 2 Vs are evolved from VMAXs, they would count as 2/4.

    For me are:
    • VMax
    1. Scizor
    2. Salamence
    • Vs
    1. Scizor
    2. Salamence
    3. Houndoom
    4. Crobat?
    Since these cards are the non-Galar Dex Pokémon that got the Ultra Rare treatment. As you observed, With the exception of SWSH Decks in Japan (Tapu Koko, Victini, Regirock, etc.), SWSH V/VMax cards in the first 2 sets are Pokemon from the Galar dex and they'll want to keep it on the next set. These four Vs and 2 VMAXs might be reserved to the first SWSH Subset

    That ETB looks sooooooo nice. The linework on Eternatus' spine is absolutely gorgeous and the colours go really well. It's definitely more detailed than the usual ETB.

    17 Trainer cards and four full-art Supporter cards

    So likely Bird Keeper won't get a FA, can't see them skipping Rose and Piers.

    Not sure why they're doing any of this tbh, we've had set swith 10 FA trainers, what's 5? Why cut 4 v's/2 VMAX ...

    It's the same case as with Dan. The important characters are getting FA cards. If anything I'd expected the Hop FA promo or the Pokemon Center Nurse FA promo to be in the set, but I could see them released in the special September or in our November set.

    Of note, the Theme Deck Galarian Darmanitan and Sirfetch'd could be from the same set as Mew and Galarian Slowbro!
