‘Chilling Reign,’ June’s English TCG Set!

The next English TCG set will be named Chilling Reign!

It will release on June 18th. The prerelease window will take place from June 5th to June 13th, though most countries won’t host any due to the pandemic.

The set should be comprised of cards from S5a Matchless Fighters and S6 Silver Lance / Jet-Black Spirit.

The name comes from the fact the last two sets feature Ice Rider Calyrex and Shadow Rider Calyrex. Their sets haven’t been officially revealed yet. The two Calyrex will appear as Water or Psychic-type Pokemon V and VMAX.

There are currently product shortages due to the pandemic’s impact on printing factories. However, TPCi seemed to indicate in a recent announcement that these issues will soon be resolved.

Normally Chilling Reign would have been our May set, but its release has been pushed back a month like Battle Styles. We reported this would happen last fall. The set schedule will return to its normal “February / May / August / November” pattern later this year. TPCi’s decision to shift the schedule may have been caused by the aforementioned pandemic issues or the release of Shining Fates in February.

No other information has been revealed about Chilling Reign, but stay tuned!

    If you look closely at the background of the logo you can see topography lines. This most likely represents the immense elevation change in the Crown Tundra DLC.

    This is the coolest name and logo of a set we've had in long time. God, it's so unpokemonly cool, like a hearthstone logo or something.

    Need some GOOD grass Pokemon! Grass doesn't get any love :(
    Do like the set logo though, hoping for some fire full arts.

    I like that Chilling can refer to both Ice and Ghost.

    And I just realized it's "Reign" and not "Reins." Pretty clever set title.

    I think the reign in the name could be a reference to the Rein of Unity

    They are definitely gonna end the Sword & Shield era with a bang, however, I'm still concerned with the lack of gigantamax announcements. I know Calyrex and Urshifu are the stars of our latest sets, but would it be too much to ask for a confirmation in, at least the Galar Gigantamaxes we are missing? Sandaconda, Hatterene and Duraludon are missing their V-Max upgrades despite having a V base-form, Melmetal, Gengar, Machamp and Kingler are still missing a V and V-Max version altogether.

    I don't want the situation with the mega pokémon repeating itself, where they are concerned with shilling legendaries and guaranteed sellers like Charizard over the Pokémon that are supposed to be the focus of the new games.

    I'm looking forward to this set. I wonder whom will join Calyrex, Glastrier, Spectrier, Kubfu and Urshifu in this set and how will they release Regidrago..... Hopefully, we will see Eternatus get a normal card and hopefully get some answers on who will get to represent Dragon type Pokémon like Regidrago and Dratini.

    Personally, I would wait until the sixth Sword and Shield set is released in Japan first, and then create a partial set list. Regarding Battle Styles, congratulations on 100% accuracy.

    This is only half of our June set, and from then on we have anywhere from 8 to 9 sets left of Sword and Shield, that's approx 50 - 65 VMAXs, loads of opportunities left.

    Honest question shouldn't the eevee heros set be in this as well ? Or would it be in the next set ?

    Next set. This one will be made up of the twin Calyrex sets and Matchless Fighters.

    Is this the set with the speculative V-Union mechanic?
