Concept art? As in GAME concept art? Or something similar?Each card will feature “conceptual artwork” of the Pokemon in its “environment,” though this last point is purposefully left open to interpretation (see the Japanese below).
YES! YES YES YES!If you purchase four booster packs of the set, you’ll receive a 1-card promo booster pack. It will feature “cards from the past.” The cards in this pack will not be legal for Standard tournament play, which probably means they are reprints of old cards (such as the Starter Pokemon we’re getting in our First Partner Packs, which are illegal jumbo cards). These promo packs will also be included within other products.
Zoroark Vmax fusion would be coolI'm guessing the "Fusion" battle style represents versatile Pokemon like Mew, Ditto, Porygon, Smeargle, Kecleon, Arceus, and Silvally. Attack copying, type changing, and the like. Ninetales, Zoroark, Nihilego, Clefairy, and some ghosts could also probably fall under it.
Imagine this as an English counterpaSeeing some of those promotional images of some of the TCGs historic cards is really giving me that feeling of nostalgia, specifically the ones in relation to the BW and XY eras where I started out in the TCG. It’s weird to think I’m feeling nostalgia over these sets that still feel so recent to me, but… Here we are I guess. Specifically seeing even the mention of BW cards like Plasma Kyurem, and eventually for XY, the combo of M Rayquaza and Shaymin, I’m thinking back to the nearly two straight years I exclusively played that deck. I miss those days…
I should also add, in terms of the actual set, the fact that the Base Venusaur is textured is a really cool way of redoing these cards! It makes them feel special and unique amongst their original counterparts, and I’m really hoping they keep that around for our side of things. The idea of stuff like a textured Umbreon Gold Star… Man, I can’t wait to see more on this set.
it'd probably be the old style template with 1 line of 4 [G] energy, a precedent set during XY Evolutions. Still sexy, though.Imagine this as an English counterpabut with 25th anniversary official stamp
We already know that the reprint/homage cards will use their original Energy template, not the modern one.it'd probably be the old style template with 1 line of 4 [G] energy, a precedent set during XY Evolutions. Still sexy, though.
Is this FINALLY the reprint set we need and deserve? Iconic cards? All eras? Errata updates? TCGO support?! Cubes rejoice?! Will we finally have the vintage format Pokémon so desperately needs?!
Based mostly on the images... I'm so, so excited.
https://www.remambo.jp/japanese-online-stores/pokemon-center-online-japanI generally have zero interest in collecting Japanese cards but these are cool enough I might try.
I've never looked into it before but is there a way to order directly from Japan or their Pokemon Center to ship to the U.S.?
Like how do scalpers get their hands on them and is there a chance to beat them?
