First Teaser Info for S6 ‘Silver Lance’ and ‘Jet-Black Spirit!’

The first teaser information has been revealed for S6 Silver Lance and Jet-Black Spirit, which trademarks first revealed three months ago.

Each set will feature 70 cards before secret rares. They will release on April 23rd.

Silver Lance will focus on Single Strike cards and feature Water-type Ice Rider Calyrex as both a Pokemon V and VMAX. Jet-Black Spirit will focus on Rapid Strike cards and feature Psychic-type Shadow Rider Calyrex as both a Pokemon V and VMAX.

The sets will feature several special art cards that emphasize a Pokemon’s environment. The teaser info for January’s Single Strike Master and Rapid Strike Master mentioned this too. They’re likely referring to alternate art cards like the two Urshifu VMAX that were just revealed.

The sets will continue to introduce new Battle Style Pokemon, Supporters, and Item cards, which we already knew.


A “Jumbo Pack” will also release on April 23rd for 990 yen. It will come with two booster packs of each set, a Pokemon coin, and three promo cards — a reverse holo Trainer card, a reverse holo Energy card, and either a holo Ice Rider Calyrex V or Shadow Rider Calyrex V. The two Pokemon V will be different from the ones included in the S6 sets.

The set will also see the release of deck boxes and sleeves featuring Ice Rider Calyrex and Shadow Rider Calyrex.

This year’s Japanese sets include Single Strike Master and Rapid Strike Master in January, Matchless Fighter in March, and Silver Lance and Jet-Black Spirit in April. We also know about trademarks for…

    Weird how these aren't mentioned as being V-UNION cards; now I'm really wondering when we're getting info on those

    Wonder if Spectrier, Glastrier and Calyrex will get individual cards. Maybe V-UNION will play a role in that?

    Wonder if there'll be new Battle Styles (like how we got 1 or 2 new SP variants with most of the Platinum sets) or if it'll be Single Strike vs Rapid Strike for the whole year.

    If they are battle style based, Ice Rider will certainly be Single Strike due to Glastrier being a high attack power tank and Shadow Rider will be Rapid Strike due to being a more sophisticated Special Attacker.

    V-union may be another tag team, and SR/IR Calyrex are formes... I think.

    Oh boy,I'm hyped to see if they used the blue aura to Calyrex VMAX like in the games.
