Kieran’s Special Illustration Rare print has just been revealed from SV6 Mask of Change! The set will release in Japan on April 26th. It should then combine with March’s Crimson Haze to form our Twilight Masquerade set in May.

With how many other old mechanics have returned (the old style of ex's, TMs, Ace Specs, Terastal sorta being Delta Species in spirit), I do wonder if we'll get another equivalent of Shining/Star/Radiant Pokemon eventually.

...maybe that's how Stellar type will translate to the TCG?
Teeziro's been doing some excellent art for the Pokemon themselves, I appreciate them getting the opportunity to contribute to SAR Supporters!
I'm so EXCITED! I can't wait for the set to drop so I can get the SIR– I looked at the artist's other works, and it's all drop-dead GORGEOUS! I'm going to need, like, fifty copies to consume in place of oxygen.
teeziro started off so strong with the evolving skies umbreon v alt and they haven’t missed since!! one of my top favorite artists rn
Did they just give up on the "Rule Box" phrasing for EXs and Vs?
Creatures' choice of "Pokemon with a Rule Box" vs a specific category of Rule Box Pokemon almost always comes down to whichever one makes the effect weaker. As best I can tell, Path to the Peak, Ting-Lu ex, and Iron Thorns ex are the only exceptions so far, all three of which are Ability lock effects weaker than the ones that already exist in Expanded.
Did they just give up on the "Rule Box" phrasing for EXs and Vs?
Rule Box can include many different kinds of Pokemon which effects like Kieran may punish too much.

Generally speaking, if it affects numbers or damage, specify the exact Pokemon. If it is looking at something else such as the Pokemon as a whole or effects, just say Rule Box.
Eh, not a fan of either full art or this one.

This one at least is very detailed

Would this double up with maximum belt or choice belt? Could get some KO's you wouldn't normally.
