    Fairy type Lele? All hell is going to break lose with people shoving that card into Garde decks.

    Just because the two cards are similar does not make them the same.

    Fairy tapu lele is not psychic tapu lele. Therefore, if they rotated out GRI and not Fairy lele's set, then you would be able to use fairy lele in standard but not psychic lele.

    Wow, those Gold GXs look amazing.

    Shame the chance of pulling one is 1/17,462 due to the ridiculous number of secret rares. And you just know these two are going to cost a fortune to buy as singles, especially Solgaleo. :/

    I love how the gold GX cards are similar to the gold EX cards we got in EX Battle Boost! Also that Shiinotic is adorable :3

    Go for the gold as they always say I guess...
    even if the chances of you getting the gold are super low

    Unlikely, they're similar to the gold SR Reshiram and Zekrom from EX Battle Boost so outside of Japan these will most likely be proper SRs.

    Oh, for crying out loud. Did we really need another rarity beyond rainbow rares? I mean, sure, these are probably treated the same as a secret rare Trainer, but still. Full art's are pretty much redundant, rainbow rares are pointless. I don't know how you manage to go beyond pointless, but they managed it. They look neat and all, but they don't do much for me beyond that. =|

    That was more ranty than intended. :rolleyes: Cynicism aside, that Shiinotic is pretty snazzy. I suppose if Ribombee can't fit well in a Gardevoir GX deck, this won't either. But it's certainly an obvious combo. I suppose time will tell.

    Tomokazu Komiya can still make Alolan Vulpix adorable even if he does primitivist art.

    The new Guzzlord GX looks sick; it even shows what Guzzlord does best: grabbing and eating everything it can get its hands on.

    Xurkitree's full art should still have its head glowing, but I can't help but imagine it doing a crazy dance.

    The Morellull and Shiinotic are type reprints of the Sun/Moon versions. It's also good to see baby Fini make an appearance after like how many sets.

    Why can't we just get those amazing full arts from steam siege and fates collide again (and that FA Promo Shaymin EX)?? Hyper Rare Volc full art was amazing. The Gold Rare is WAY better than the RR but it's still a step backwards IMO. It's curious that the SM base set Solgaleo is the one that gets the GR treatment but whatever.

    I'm interested to see if that Shiinotic sees anymore use that the Grass version. It's a pretty amazing effect IMO

    EDIT: sooooo was the update that something was added to the post or that everything in the original post was the only new stuff we'd be getting?

    I guess this is something like Legendary Treasures with the Zekrom and Reshiram? I like it, but keep it special please.

  18. The new art for Silvally-GX is great - better than the Crimson Invasion versions!

    Hopefully we will get it as a Promo, though I'm not sure considering the Shiny Silvally box that's already due for release in the West.

    I bet if we don't get all Memory Cards and New Silvally in SM5, I am calling it Silvally RKS system Collection Box. As long all the cards are up, I'll give Geodudes to each of them.

    Tapu Fini+Manaphy SHL will be a fun meme deck :3

    EDIT: The art on all the GXs (especially the gold ones) is beautiful!
