Pokemon.com has updated its promo legality page with three upcoming promo cards: Mismagius (SM245), Sabrina & Brycen (SM246), and Crobat V (SWSH110).
Mismagius and Sabrina & Brycen will be legal on August 20th. Cards are legal two weeks after release, so this should be confirmation they will be included in August 6th’s Trainer’s Toolkit. Crobat V is already confirmed for the kit, which indicates this even further. Crobat V will be legal on August 6th because it’s a reprint.
This news also means Sun & Moon promos are still being printed! The last one was Aipom in May 2020. The bulk of Sun & Moon promos finished releasing in fall 2019 upon the release of Sword & Shield.
Originally, Mismagius and Bellelba & Brycen-Man were banned for creating an unbalanced game enviornment. Creatures then announced they were going to re-release them with new artwork and updated effects. It was the first time Creatures would be re-releasing banned cards with updated effects. They released them as new Gym promos: Mismagius and Sabrina & Bryce (the Gym Leaders playing the movie roles of Bellelba & Brycen-Man from BW2).
In retrospect, Creatures didn’t actually replace the cards. Mismagius is completely different and Sabrina & Brycen are replacing Bellelba & Brycen-Man, which literally isn’t the same card. It was more of a marketing move, like “We banned these cards, but as our apology take these completely different promos featuring the same characters!”
[P] Psybeam: 20 damage. Your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Confused.
[P][C] Curse of Suffering: If your opponent’s Active Pokemon has exactly 9 damage counters on it, that Pokemon is Knocked Out.
Weakness: Darkness (x2)
Search your deck for up to 2 basic Energy cards, reveal them, and put them into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.
When you play this card, you may also discard five cards from your hand. If you do, search your deck for up to 3 Pokémon of different types and put them into your hand.
You may play only 1 Supporter card during your turn (before your attack).
The second Trainer’s Toolkit will release on August 6th:
It will retail for $29.99. The configuration is the same as the first Trainer’s Toolkit, but this one will come with two copies of Crobat V. The Crobat V will presumably be the alternate art promo from Japan’s Inteleon & Gengar VMAX Decks:
