‘Shiny Star V’ Officially Revealed, Contains 127 Shiny Pokemon!

Creatures has just revealed Shiny Star V at Japan’s Yokohama Regionals! The booster pack features shiny Charizard, Toxtricity, Centiskorch, Dragapult, Ditto, Lapras, and Boltund.

 

As posted before, the set will contain 190 cards before secret rares and will feature shiny reprints. It’s now been revealed there will be 127 shiny Pokemon as secret rare cards… meaning the set will have over 300 total cards! Shiny Charizard VMAX was revealed as card #308/190. Shiny Decidueye (#202/190) and Oranguru (#297/190) were also revealed. (The shiny Charizard V from our Champion’s Path will obviously be in this set too.)

The main portion of the set will include the following reprinted cards. This includes cards that were previously exclusive to the English TCG, like our Zacian V promo and alternate art Eldegoss V from Champion’s Path:

The set will also feature a new type of reverse holo design for Japan:

As posted before, Shiny Star V will release on November 20th. Each booster pack will come with a guaranteed Pokemon V or VMAX. The set will mostly contain reprints. It will also feature some new Pokemon V and Supporter cards. Judging by the booster pack, Ditto V will be one of the new cards.

The cards from this set could become part of our special set in February or a potential holiday set in 2021 or 2022.

This is the 422nd Charizard card this year…


Update: The “Nessa Set” releasing alongside Shiny Star V has also been revealed! It will contain two booster boxes of Shiny Star V, a deck box, a pack of card sleeves, a coin, and a card storage box — all featuring Nessa!

    So now we know what's gonna be in next year's holiday set.
    They let everyone know about the set right after the preorders have closed. Ha ha
    Thankfully, I've managed to secure 3 boxes.

    Oh no, I’m going to start saving now and then when any pre orders for a special set go live I’m going to order an elite trainer box or maybe two. I was hoping the shiny set would be charizard free to get rid of scalpers but still excited for when it comes to English none the less. :D

    I wish they didn't add that stupid Charizard to it.. This will probably the most desirable Charizard bait card yet.

    I just don't get it because like yeah the Charizards attract attention, but they're really overdoing it now in this cheap stupid way. It feels like there's been a whole flurry of random chase zard cards lately.

    I'm going to order a few boxes of this when the pre-orders are up because I really want some shiny cards but like I'm almost considering not doing it because the crazy Poketubers and "investors" will spark a fudging craze about this set. The easiest thing to do as a collector in cases like this is to just not care and look forward to sets that won't have this cacophony of scalpers, flippers, mass buyers, YouTubers and shitty Instagram "influencers"

    Maybe it'll be a Ditto V that can evolve into any VMAX?

    That would be really cool! Or maybe it could evolve into anything to help stage 2s?

    I’m kinda mad. I like that they are making shiny cards but most people (from what I gather) haven’t gotten all of the hidden fates cards yet, and now they are releasing a brand new set with even more. It’s a total cash grab to do it so close to the hidden fates release.

    So, they got way too excited to release one of the shinies way too early to use as a crutch for a set nobody cared about, and now they’re going to use the shiny VMAX as a crutch for this set when it won’t need one as it comes out in English whenever.

    Again-and let me make this clear-I like Charizard and don’t think it deserves a bad name-but the handling of the Pokémon as a crutch for these kinds of things isn’t the way to do it and it’s exhausting as a fan of the Pokémon AND as someone who wants to collect special sets and all that. Now there’s another Charizard I would like to own but can’t, and a shiny set I would have wanted of Hidden Fates wasn’t such a nightmare, and now can’t get.

    So? I don’t care anymore. I’m never going to be able to find this set, because it’ll be just like the last two once it comes out in English. All I’ve got to say is this better not be the 25th anniversary set. Don’t make that one just another shiny set.

    GX Ultra Shiny was released in 2018 November 2. That's like almost 2 years ago and it'll be over 2 years ago when it releases.

    Also Japan always has some kind of special box release around November every year. This is just this year's version of what was Tag All Stars last year, which had no shinies but did have some insanely good full art cards.

    It's not unfair but it is pretty shitty because it's likely going to be a scarce scalper-fest again with boxes being sold for 200% of the original price after the initial batches are sold out.

    Yeah... more than 300 cards from this set, well I can forget that. I still haven't had a chance to get Hidden fates ETB, Pokeball editions because it was out of stock during preorders, and the best part is Pokemon company decide to reprint tins wich majority people have opened to the point they get sick. So far I have open only 25 Hidden Fate packs mainly because can't find anywhere on sell but hey got lucky and pulled at least the Shiny Charizard GX.

    When it comes to this special set, it is perfect for our English release but I got a bad feeling it will be out of stock during preorders, especially when scalpers that have the means and connections with distributors, while regular guys will run around stores trying to find if anything is available.

    And preordering is a nightmare from online stores, take an example of Champion's Path, I don't think it is normal that have to pay during Preorder 75 euros for a box and in my case, I got lucky because another guy screwed up and the retailer gave to me but still these boxes should be around 50-55 euros tops and yet with stupid decisions by Pokemon company these products aren't available in many places and go for crazy overpriced, I can't even buy as Christmas presents.

    300 cards?! Holy crap is that the biggest set ever?

    Also I wonder if there will be shiny versions of the Amazing Rares?

    Considering we already have Shiny Charizard V in English (which likely comes from this set), I'd say yeah :p

    The article says this could come to English in February. That seems really quick I was thinking late next year.
