Lucario V from ‘V Starter Decks’ Revealed, Hints of the Other Eight Pokemon V!

As posted before, there will be nine 60-card decks that will each focus on one type (except Fairy and Dragon). They will release on July 10th. These decks are an attempt to replicate the massive success of 2018’s GX Starter Decks, which to this day still sell out quickly.

Over the past week or two, Japanese TV show Oha Suta has been dropping hints on which Pokemon V the decks will feature. The hosts make drawings or wear costumes to tip off viewers. So far they’ve hinted at Eevee or Espeon V, Mew V, Duraludon V, and Incineroar V. We know we’re getting a Mew V in our Darkness Ablaze set, so these decks will likely be where the card comes from (meaning no Espeon).
