‘Darkness Ablaze’ Prerelease Promos Revealed!

We now have exclusive first photos of the Darkness Ablaze prerelease promos!

Since prereleases are cancelled, you can’t officially obtain these from events. But they will still be available in the Darkness Ablaze Build & Battle Boxes, which you can preorder from your local hobby store.

The cards feature alternate artwork and come from Japan’s Infinity Zone set, except Hydreigon, who is from the Charizard VMAX deck. The cards from Infinity Zone will become part of both our Darkness Ablaze set and special 2020 set.

    I'm wondering why they made staff version of the cards if no event will occour. Or there some place on the planet that the pre release event is now ok?

    If only Kangaskhan had been changed for Milotic. I thought Milotic would definitely be a promo.

    Whoops, just realized I posted an earlier draft of the list that accidentally omitted Mew V and included Zygarde! We fixed it before publishing but I had so many tabs open I posted the wrong version of the story. The list is fixed now!

    Sure zard rr could be in set or it could not be. But to make a statement saying it was never going to be in set. Do u work for pokemon? Insider info?. I don't think anyone has opened a pack. We dont even know how many cards are in set yet after sr.
