“Lost Origin” To Feature Lost Zone, Aerodactyl VSTAR, Kyurem VMAX, and More!

The official set description for Lost Origin has now been revealed!

As we speculated months ago, the set will see the return of the Lost Zone. It will feature over 190 cards, including three Radiant Pokemon, six Pokemon VSTAR, 14 Pokemon V, one Pokemon VMAX, and another 30-card Trainer Gallery.

Its featured cards will be Giratina VSTAR, Aerodactyl VSTAR, Magnezone VSTAR, Drapion VSTAR, Hisuian Goodra VSTAR, and Hisuian Zoroark VSTAR. Kyurem VMAX, Enamorus V, and Radiant Gardevoir will also appear in the set.

As posted many times, the set will combine May’s Dark Phantasma and July’s Lost Abyss. The latter hasn’t been revealed in Japan yet, but we’ll probably see it announced this week.

The Lost Zone was originally introduced in 2009’s Platinum set. The mechanic is heavily associated with Giratina. The Lost Zone is an “out of play” discard pile. Cards can’t be retrieved from it once they’re banished there. The mechanic was reintroduced in 2018’s Ultra Prism, but went back into retirement a few sets later.

You can read the full set description for Lost Origin below. The set will release on September 9th, which is later than usual.

Surpass the Point of No Return!

As the boundary between dimensions tears apart, Giratina VSTAR plunges the world into the abyssal shadow of the Lost Zone! While Aerodactyl VSTAR harnesses this distorted power, Magnezone, Drapion, Hisuian Goodra, and Hisuian Zoroark also appear as Pokémon VSTAR to show off their own astonishing skills, joined by Kyurem VMAX. Above the shadows, Enamorus V and Radiant Gardevoir conjure up dazzling magic in the Sword & Shield—Lost Origin expansion!

  • Over 190 cards
  • 3 brand-new Radiant Pokémon
  • 6 awesome Pokémon VSTAR
  • 14 powerful Pokémon V and 1 enormous Pokémon VMAX
  • 30 cards with special art in the Trainer Gallery subset
  • More than 15 Trainer cards

I find it strange. Zoroark, Goodra, And Magnezone VSTARs are in Dark Phantasm. While Lost Abyss has 4 RRR Rarities? Unless the VMAX will be a special box in Japan or something. The past few sets have had 3 RRR Rarities per set (Excluding Star Birth)

I think that's because Dark Phantasm is an "a" set S10a, while Lost Abyss is a main set a la Star Birth. Double main sets have 3 RRR cards, where as single main sets have 4 RRR cards (Star Birth, Amazing Volt Tackle, Rebellion Clash, Fusion Art etc etc)

That Radiant Gardevoir is mine!!! Radiant Steelix too!!! My guess for Lost Abyss will have more ghost pokemon (aside from the legendary pokemon), possibly Banette and another Gengar.

This probably means that the final set will break the record for biggest set again, unfortunately.
Yeah, it's not looking good. We are already at 145 cards before Lost Abyss. It should go up to at least 255 with Lost Abyss. Over 190 cards means we could get a minimum of 56 cut cards.
SWSH12 should get at least 80/81 from Incandescent Arcana + 116 from Paradigm Trigger + the Zeraora/Deoxys decks + MAYBE whatever few new cards will be in VSTAR Universe + if there are any new cards in the Rayquaza/Charizard decks + the remaining cut cards.
