Rainbow Rare Charizard VMAX, Full Art Charizard V Promos!

Six hundred copies of a hyper rare Charizard VMAX promo will be awarded to top finishers of special tournaments in Japan! The top four finishers will win a full art Charizard V promo. All participants will receive a “Gym Trainer” promo.

From July 23rd to September 22nd, players will be able to participate in “Charizard HR Contests” in which they open ten booster packs of Legendary Heartbeat and build a deck (like our prerelease tournaments). The tournaments will be held at Pokemon Centers and locations that host Pokemon Gym tournaments.

The last few times Pokemon held tournaments like this, we did not get the promos overseas. So it seems unlikely we’ll get these Charizard cards in our Darkness Ablaze set. But since it’s Charizard, TPCi could have planned for it, so who knows…

The Charizard cards are reprints with new artwork. The original versions originate from the Charizard VMAX deck, released on March 27th.

Charizard V – Fire – HP220

    They just released Rosa past year, which was a far better effect for a supporter which can only be used after a KO... I know it's a gym promo, but would it kill them to make it good?

    if those cards are in darkness ablaze it's gonna blow out even hidden fates as the most 'valuable' set (i.e. in terms of resale value) by a country mile

    Tournament promos? Like the Zekrom and Mewtwo from before?

    Yup, these will surely go for over 5kusd for the Hyper.

    I follow this Vlogger in Japan and she says that just like the 20th Anniversary if Pokemon released a Gold Pikachu with an initial price tag of $2k, there are plans for another similar Pikachu card with an initial price tag of $3k

    Not sure if I should get the Pikachu or Hyper Zard (only 600 copies damn)

    Been wrong before,...
    They do have zard on back art. Why wouldn't they not put in our set? I mean they like making money and putting it in set will cause people to buy more packs
     
  9. i really hope we dont get that rainbow zard in English. Sick of uncompleteable sets because of Charizards

    I highly doubt this was true. I'm sure it'd be widespread info by now and the first one was released for the 20th anniversary so Idk why they'd do new ones now

    Also how many of these tourneys will be held?

    IMO it's almost certain these Charizard will never leave Japan. We've never gotten the cards released in this method in English. Mewtwo was last year's, Zekrom was the year before, The Masked Royal FA two years ago, etc.

    Let japan keep these, we can get a gold version in our holiday set instead. That's fair

    I'm trying not to be a salty sandy, but I'm going to be right now. Stuff like this is why I absolutely hate Charizard.

    Oh look, how kind of them to give Charizard a promo. He hasn't had one in a long time.

    Every main set with a Charizard has included a secret rare/hyper rare counterpart. M Charizard EX, Charizard GX, ReshiZard, BraixZard. It would be strange for English Set to not have the Hyper Rare Zard VMax.

    Actually, the Mewtwo GX Hyper promo from Japan was a different art was it not? Because we got a Hyper from Shining Legends.
