Exactly! This set is SO underwhelming, even down to its alt arts. Imagine if, instead, they did a Dragonite alt art of him flying over the Great Wall, or an alt art of Alolan Exeggutor in Hawaii with tourists taking pictures of him.Of all the Pokemon they could've chose to make an alt art, they chose Conkeldurr?
There are many problems with this set but that 22 SRs in a 71 card set (93 cards) is like a staple since they introduced rainbow trainers.I just wish they stopped making gold and rainbow cards. Except for the energies, I personally think all of them are really ugly and they are to rare (and to much, I mean come one 22 secret rares in a set of 71 cards?!) for me to even bother collecting them when completing a set.
They should be putting more effort in alt-art cards, or full-art versions for both V and non-V cards like some of the character rares we are getting with recent sets. Not those "full-arts" we get now.
So what was the point of including Natu and Pidove lol.Based on what I've opened (two trainer boxes -Candela & Blanche-; 12 packs) I have to say that the ratios were pretty good. Dragonite FA, Spark Rainbow, Mewtwo V-Star, one V (Conkeldurr) and almost all the holos and two Ditto cards. BUT, the big issue for me it has to be with the Ditto mechanic, apparently only three Pokemon can be 'Ditto' (Spinarak, Numel & Bidoof), both in Japanese and Spanish versions of the set, so all the fun of getting a full set it's gone, as the set it's pretty small and they repeat a lot of cards. I expected more, to be honest.
Also, as a PoGO player to see that only 6-7 cards feature elements from the game (not counting the trainer cards) it's actually very dissapointing. They almost did a good job, hopefully if they do a second set, they'll cover Rocket and Shadow Pokemon and in that case... well, we will se.
Ok, but then why does the English set have 78, and the Japanese set have 71, when several cards included in japenese are promos in english? I think this will likely just have to wait a couple weeks until the english one comes.Wrong way round; they are in the set for Japan, but promos in English.
It's because secret rares are not included in that number and Japanese secret rares include full arts unlike English secret rares which only include rainbow and gold cards.Ok, but then why does the English set have 78, and the Japanese set have 71, when several cards included in japenese are promos in english?

I mean yeah, sure Exeggutor V would have been better bth I actually think it looks OK better than what most,(particully I.) could do?Of all the Pokemon they could've chose to make an alt art, they chose Conkeldurr?

but naw here's a conkeldurr in a random stadium lul
Far to logical which is why ideas like that go right over their headsWhat 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....
Specify about the insanity.Reading these comments make me think all collectors are insane. Does anyone that actually plays the game visit this website?
I'm excited to play with Ditto, Snorlax, the Radiant Pokemon, Mewtwo, and Ambipom. The birds and Bibarel are interesting too.
