Three Pokemon Trademarks for Future Sets Possibly Discovered!

We have discovered three new trademarks filed by Pokemon: Matchless Fighter (双璧のファイター), Silver Lance (白銀のランス), and Jet-Black Spirit (漆黒のガイスト).

These trademarks are filed under the same scope as previous trademarks for set names, so these may be upcoming Pokemon TCG sets. Trademarks are usually discovered five to six months in advance. So if these are sets, they would release around March if precedent holds true. This lines up with the March set release we learned about the other day.

We’ve never seen trademarks for three sets filed at the same time. Set trademarks are always filed together when they release together, like in the case of Single Strike Master and Rapid Strike Master. So we’re not sure what’s going on here. Maybe Pokemon filed a bunch of future set names at the same time? At this point we simply don’t know.

Could the names be referring to Gigantamax Machamp, Gigantamax Melmetal or Duraludon, and Gigantamax Gengar?

Thanks goes to Arantxa T. for translating!

    ****SPOILERS BELOW****

    Could be the new Pokemon likely to be revealed tomorrow. Especially the latter two (Silver and Jet-Black horse Pokemon?).

    Or it could be Marshadow :p

    Edit: On second thought, nah, they would probably release a Calyrex themed set first, then the horses + the fusions... and none of the above sets sounds like it would feature Calyrex.

    Edit 2: You know what, the more I think about it the more I feel like Matchless Fighter is gonna be Machamp and Silver Lance is going to be Duraludon. Jet Black Spirit could be Gengar (spirit) but it's not really jet-black so not too sure about this one. Also sorry for not tagging spoilers, I dont know how to do that >___>

    A gigantamax Gengar card would be amazing, it would mean we get a Gengar V aswell :D

    Duraludon got already a V card,and Melmetal G-MAX isn't revealed yet,I think Kingler can be an opportunity

    Right, but Duraludon has not gotten his G-Max released yet.

    If vmax melmetal were to happen, it would be released in the main series first.
    so if the set is supposed to be released in march, then potentially gmax melmetal will be released a little bit before then (thats what happened with gmax snorlax and toxtricity) or it will be released way before then. so we'll have to wait and see


    EDIT:
    I believe that kingler's set would have to do with bubbles/foam, rather than a silver lance because of its move being G-max foamburst

    Game Freak left some Crown Tundra data in the Isle of Armor update including the internal codenames for #896 ("white horse"), #897 ("black horse"), and #898 ("crown" i.e. Calyrex) as well as placeholder names for Calyrex's alt forms which are portmanteaus implying fusions. A key item functioning identically to the Kyurem and Necrozma fusing items was also found.

    Maybe you're right,but we also know Game Freak can be
    unpredictable,so let's see who's right.

    Or they can be the two horses from the Crown Tundra as somebody said.

    Or maybe they are the Galarian Zapdos, Moltres and Articuno...

    Oh, that actually makes sense considering the set names. Would love to collect some full art Vs of them...

    I personally don't think it will be featuring the galarian legendary birds, because I would expect something to do with lasers to be in place of "silver lance"

    That's true, but imo Galarian Articuno's lazer could be akin to a lance in it's color, shape and how it strikes the opponent. Umbreon and Darkrai-GX had the Black Lance attack, not because the duo wielded lances but rather because of the implication that the attack impaled the opponent.

    Indeed, Silver Lance could be based on Melmetal to promote The Crown Tundra, but the birds have a bigger connection to the DLC. That, along with them being a trio like these sets supposedly are, I think they make the most sense.
