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…
- V-UNION and V Star — the first is a new mechanic, the second might be a new set
- Eevee Heroes, Sky Stream, and Towering Perfection — these are obviously upcoming sets
- “High Class Pack” and “High Class Deck” — we’re not sure what these are yet, but they may have to do with our 25th anniversary set in the fall
