All “Pokemon GO” Secret Rares Revealed!

We can now reveal all 22 secret rares from the Pokemon GO set! It releases in Japan on June 17th and internationally on July 1st. We translated the cards from the main set last week.

Except for the special art versions of Mewtwo V and Conkeldurr V, none of the set’s Pokemon V have the Pokemon GO logo. We’re not sure of the logic behind this. It might be because the V cards look tacky with it. Or maybe Creatures wants to uphold their “brand” and not mark their signature cards with the logo of another game. Or maybe they excluded it so that if they reprint those V in a future set (such as in VSTAR Universe), the reprints won’t stand out by having the GO logo. Who knows?

Here’s how the textures look on some of the secret rares:

And here’s a look at the set’s Radiant Pokemon as real cards instead of digital images:

You can check out the main Pokemon GO set here. You can also find a list of the English products here. In the U.S. and elsewhere, the booster packs will not be sold individually like in Japan. Our packs will only be available through the aforementioned promo products.

I imagine the Pokemon Go logo is left off of the cards because it would be quite tricky to texturize them with the same holofoil style as the rest of the card?

I do not like the artwork of the Radiant Pokémon or the artwork of most of the cards here. But that full art Dragonite and secret rare Mewtwo look impressive.

Other than the Mewtwo SA, there really is nothing special about this set. You would think since they had years to develop it, there would be a little more to it. The radiant pokemon look terrible, other than the Eevee, which looks pretty good. It would have been nice to see some more special art/alternate arts that artist made and were not computer generated.

I really don't think anyone cares about Pokemon GO NPCs. There's definitely a massive amount of lost opportunity with this set. If it really leaned into the Pokemon GO angle with all artwork (like featuring real-life cities on the arts), they could have had another Evolutions.

What an underwhelming set. Instead of jerking off gen 1 and shoving in another useless Exeggutor ultra rare, imagine if instead they featured an entire subset of Radiant Pokemon (similar to Shining/Hidden Fates) that were all Community Day Pokemon. HOW COOL would that be???? Certainly more objectively cool than the fourth shiny Charizard of Sword and Shield....

I am very interested in the difference from the 78 cards in the english set, and the 71 cards in the Japanese set. Like will everything up to the Dragonite be in the main English set, but the overall card count will be the same?

FAs and special arts are secret rares in japanese but are part of the normal set count in english.

The difference is Radiant Eevee being cut out as a promo. Then the FAs are included in the English set numbering, but minus Mewtwo V FA, Blanche FA, Candela FA and Spark FA which have been converted into promos.

So in English, Eevee and the team leaders are not promo cards, but part of the set, and there are 2 Mewtwo FA that are part of the set, where all of these are promo only for Japanese? Gotcha.
