All 71 regular cards from Japan’s Dark Phantasma have been officially revealed! The set releases in Japan next Friday.
The set’s secret rare cards will be revealed over the next week — stay tuned!
We expect many of these cards to become part of our August set, Lost Origin, along with the cards from Japan’s Lost Abyss in June. Our Lost Origin set should also feature cards that will be cut from this month’s Astral Radiance. Because there will be too many cards to shove into our Lost Origin set, we expect many cards from this set...

I hope Magnezone's good. Been a hot minute since a Magnezone card's been really good in Standard to my memory.
BREAKthrough Magnezone was pretty good in Standard! That's pretty recent, only...

...Six and a half years old now. Never mind. It has been a minute.

Radiant Hisuian Sneasler's placement in the set is weird. It's placed where it would be if there was a Sneasel in the set, rather than the usual rule of cross-gen relatives being sorted based on their Nat Dex number if they appear alone.

On an unrelated note, I'm predicting an Enamorus V Character Super Rare with Cogita.

Are we even getting anymore CHR? Seems like there are none in this set, they would’ve been revealed by now I’d figure?

Yeeees, Magnazone Look so Fun, It only searches Items but a ball card is a Pokemon and E search is energy. Also we have all sorts of lightning stuff Stormy mountains, Flaaffy, Boltund, Speed Lightning Energy, Some dumb combo With Electrode and Roxanne, Cross Switcher/Crossreciver or and if you put Him in expanded you also get Electro Power to boost damage, thunder mountain with DCE.


It’s not perfect, Urshifu is still very powerful & Zapdos will lick it lips though suicune V and Origin Palkia VSTAR are destroyed by weakness.

Also post rotation we lose Drizzile so if you want inteleon you need rare candy or manual evolution, but Magnazone can yeet two candy’s into your hand & Instantly become inteleon.


Lastly you can use other stage 2 that are far more weird but fun, Rillaboom a Lightning Energy for fast other attacks, Pre-rotation Galarian obstagoon for hand limiting Particully Urshifu decks that build big hands, or corviknight Pre rotation as a 1-0-1 line with candy.

is it dumb & have good players show it’s flaws, ( N’s rhyperior please spare him.) but will I play him Yep

Paras/Parasect - sad that wont get Scoop Up Net, the time we get this thing. Good for extra dmg and time stalling. 3/4
H. Electrode V - cool to see doing flat 300, 330 on a VMAX for 0 energy. 4
Wurmple Line - still stuck on the Rare Candy problem, eh. 3/3,3/3,3
Snover/Abomasnow - no Gen 8 mons, wow! Only those Hisuians. 2/2
Phione - forget it. 2
H. Basculin/Basculegion - another Zoroark variant to consider. 2/4-5
Pikachu/Raichu - too clunky to made this a techable card. 3/3-4
Magnezone V/VSTAR - Not even KOing a Lumi there (ignoring the weakness), although Togekiss VMAX will rotate, this will took its place. What's the point of the VSTAR Power tho? KO Manaphy? Manaphy block bench damage. Gusting it would be worthless. 3/4
Clefairy/Clefable - love the ability on Clefairy... Not the attack. 4/3
Radiant Gardevoir - people can just Path it and ignore that dmg shield. 3
Radiant Steelix - not worth it, even as a 1-of. 3
Radiant H. Sneasler - if Poison remains to be good... 3-4
Misdreavus/Mismagius - not worth trading 1 prize for 80 dmg. 2/2
Chimecho - ehh. 2
H. Zorua/H. Zoroark - nice. 2/3-4
Enamorus V - If I even attach 3 energy, I would rather do that on Arceus. The ability seems iffy. 3
H. Growlithe/Arcanine - good luck with that. 3/4
Machop/Machoke/Machamp - cant change my opinion on it. 3/3/3
Sudowoodo - what? 2
Gligar/Gliscor - ehh?! 2/2
Gallade V - nice tech card to all F weak mons rn. 4
Spiritomb - really good, and that ability only works at the end of the opponent's turn. Meaning that card you've searched will be on your hand, at the beginning of your turn. 5
Zubat/Golbat/Crobat - what? 2/2/2
Murkrow/Honchkrow - these bland cards are everywhere! 2/2
Croagunk/Toxicroak - another one of those things. 2/2
Bronzor/Bronzong - zzzzz! 2/2
Goomy/H. Sliggoo/H. Goodra - not worth it for a Stage 2 with a Rare Candy problem going on. 3/3/3
H. Goodra V/VSTAR - Tenk! 2-3/4
Snorlax - ehh. 3
Aipom/Ambipom - better be done on a basic. 2/2
H. Zorua/Zoroark - 4/5
Arc Phone - sucks H. Heavy Ball printed before it. 3
Automated Arm - pretty handy. 3-4
Damage Pump - moving 30 dmg, not 100 dmg. 3
Calamity Box - 3
Iscan - 2-3
Arezu - seems sucks that we might lose Drizzile. 4
Volo - ultimate prize denial. 5
Lake Acuity - 4
Miss Fortune Sisters - ehh. 3-4

Togekiss - gives 3 prizes, doesnt hit anything for weakness, 60 less damage, worse V, rotates come august. but it can attack for a single attachment (DTE), can loop with cherens care, does have 40 more HP, isnt weak to fighting like magnezone (kind of relevant)

magnezone hits upcoming palkia vstar for weakness which will be very relevant, as well as suicune. it is limited to items but items can basically search out anything else so its still fine. id give magnezone the edge. being able to 2 hit vmax unlike togekiss is huge. Also one less prize is huge. And the VSTAR power adds some sniping flexibility to KO weak bench mons if necessary.

On an unrelated note, I'm predicting an Enamorus V Character Super Rare with Cogita.
Yea it’s odd, since I’m the past if a “new” evolution of a pokemon is in a set with the Pokémon it evolves form it’s always together(unless different type) or if it’s just the “new” evolution then it goes in pokedex order. The one the immediately comes to mind is Galarian Sirfetched from rebel clash and darkness ablaze, in rebel clash it’s with farfetch’d ignoring it’s pokedex order but maintaining the evolution line, but in darkness ablaze there is no galarian farfetch’d so it follow the pokedex order instead.
