I like Pokemon more than you! :p
A new story has just been posted to PokéBeach's front page:
Jumbo cards were made smaller so they could fit into Ultra PRO 4-pocket portfolios. So the jumbo should be roughly the same size as the four individual cards.Would be cool if the jumbo card was the same size as the 4 cards combined to use it in the field when a V-Union is in play but probably not gonna happen.
Wait a minute. I know that the old box topper cards were OVERSIZED, but were there ever Jumbo cards larger than the modern ones?Jumbo cards were made smaller so they could fit into Ultra PRO 4-pocket portfolios. So the jumbo should be roughly the same size as the four individual cards.
Don’t know about sleeves (although I’m sure they exist), but I know that the 25th Anniversary Jumbo Card portfolio would work well. I’m pretty sure it also has extra space after you put in all 25 promos.Nice, now we just need jumbo size sleeves
But then EVERYONE would know you were using a V-Union... EXCEPT... if EVERYONE brought random Jumbo cards to tournaments? Or else you just hide it until you use it, but even then someone from another table saw you putting a Jumbo card on the table... but you’re right, it would be great for convenience.So there's still hope we won't be pulling Greninja Chud from packs. The jumbos are definitely way more handy when it comes to actually playing these cards - even if it's not officially endorsed, I expect them to be used often.
To all those guys who were simply freaking out saying they'd have to collect these from packs and all that stuff.
TPCi knows what they're doing ok?
I don't think we will have a set for V-Union due to how difficult to get all 4 of them. LEGENDs were difficult to get in the past, we don't want this to happen again.
Actually, Fusion is a new type of Battle Style, which will be featured on Mew VMAX and other cards.S8 Fusion Arts is pretty much confirmed to be a V-Union focused set. V-Union cards will be printed in booster sets, and it'll probably be a nightmare for both players and collectors alike to get all the pieces they want. It's just a matter of time, unfortunately. Hopefully they continue to make some of them accessible through promo boxes like these, but there will definitely be some which are booster exclusive.
That's the reason why I never watch pack openings on YouTube, except to early release of sets like weeks before the actual pre-release because it's so cringe to see people's reactions pulling chase cards, It's worse if it is V-Union.even if they were the same rarity slot, which they aren't, but even if they were, they'd still be half as rare as these.
Seeing people defend this or even saying TPCi knows what they are doing is always so funny to me. While the mechanic itself seems fine, the distribution, power creep, and overall lack of balance of swsh era sets indicates the opposite to me. This will be looked back on as growing pains imo.
I get excited every time I pull something rare from a pack, but I can’t imagine getting excited about pulling any single card if you open hundreds or even thousands of booster packs each year. Not to mention the thumbnail photos just looked staged.That's the reason why I never watch pack openings on YouTube, except to early release of sets like weeks before the actual pre-release because it's so cringe to see people's reactions pulling chase cards, It's worse if it is V-Union.
