Official Teaser Info for ‘Single & Rapid Strike Master,’ Next Set in March!

We now have the official teaser information for Japan’s S5I Single Strike Master and S5R Rapid Strike Master! As was obvious, each set will feature an Urshifu V / VMAX in its respective form. If you buy a booster box of either set, you’ll get a Pokemon V promo with alternate art (like usual). But you’ll also get a voucher to receive a free booster pack of the next Sword & Shield set, which will release in March.

The images repeat what we’ve posted before. Each set will feature 70 cards. Shiny Star V releases on November 20th. On December 4th there will be two 60-card decks featuring Blastoise VMAX and Venusaur VMAX. The rest of the information is fluff.

As posted earlier today, there will be a Premium Trainer Box releasing alongside each set. While the earlier product description mentioned something about holo “UV” cards, it turns out this was just shorthand for “Urshifu V” (who is named Wulaosu in Japanese). The boxes will include holo Urshifu V promos, but they’ll be different from the ones in the sets.

There will also be various TCG accessories releasing alongside the set, as usual:

    I'm actually really relieved it ended up being something as simple as "Urshifu V."

    I was fully expecting a new type of Ultra Rare or form of rarity they were going to start doing, which would have been the last thing I wanted in a series already so clogged up with them.

    These are for Japan's double set in jan. Atm our set are nov we get votage fevlb we get 25th anniversary set. Cards from Jan set for Japan will be in our main set. Atm nornally we get it in 2nd Friday of Feb but woth the special set releasing the 3rd Friday of Feb i don't think our main set will be released in Feb at all. It could be in Jan or March. Hopeing jan that way we are syncd with Japan but that dream been teased and theorized fir over a year and dont think it happen

    Dang it, I was thinking it meant Urshifu V/V-MAX but I was hoping it meant some new thing.

    We don't yet know if there's something different going on with our English releases. We won't know until we have an official release date for SWSH 5. At this point we're too far out to have a reliable release date for it.

    I know you must be busy and all, but I was on the GameStop website and they have a Pre-order for Lapras and Snorlax VMax box. Did I miss Pokebeach's article/forum about this? Or is this new?

    By looking at the box, it comes with Lapras V and VMax, Snorlax V and VMax, pins, oversize Snorlax VMax and 8 boosters. I think I saw an Evolutions there.

    Yeah I saw it 2 days ago from a GS employee, it's a minor product so we're waiting for the list of its contents before posting a story.

    That makes sense. Better to post it with all the info all at once.
