Kingdra from Battle Styles is getting a Character Rare in S8b VMAX Climax, which releases December 3rd in Japan. Its artwork features Clair from Johto.
The following Character Rares and Character Super Rares have been revealed so far:
The new cards from Japan’s VMAX Climax will most likely become part of the international Brilliant Stars set, which releases on February 25th. As we’ve noted before:
Judging by the numbering, it seems the Japanese set will have around 30 Character Rares (Flapple through Oranguru) and around 40 Character Super Rares (Blaziken V through Blissey V).
We know from the English set description that Brilliant Stars will have 30 cards in a “Trainer Gallery” subset, so we may not be seeing all 70 of them in February. TPCi may choose to split them across a few sets and release some as promos. In this case, we don’t know which ones we’ll see in Brilliant Stars.
It’s also possible TPCi is hiding the Character Super Rares from the English set description. For example, they may be counting the Character Rares as the 30 cards they mentioned. Then the 40 Character Super Rares would somehow be secret rares in our English set.
We’ll find out in the coming months!
