It could just be starter related, but why do we need 2+ Kanto sets anyway? Shouldn't all mon from Gen 1 be cards by then? Just make a Gen 5 set already or at least make one for mon that haven't been in a set this gen.Kantoooooooooooooooooooooooo
Oh God I can't believe we're getting ANOTHER Kanto set! I just couldn't bear the thought of not having YET another version of the Kanto starters as GX mons! Because as we know, the only thing that matters in this game is not giving cards to some stupid underrated Pokemon or even following/ending this time gimmick!
Who cares about stuff like Mega Pinsir Ex? Who cares about stuff like Toucannon and Mudsdale, and Ribombee getting GX versions? Pffft nobody cares about that, we want KANTO pandering!
OK, but no way that would be Unova related, because for the last set they tend to do reprints.If they follow the timing for Sun & Moon, then september will still be Sun and Moon, and Feb will be the release for Sword and Shield (with a November/December release in Japan).
OK, but why does Kanto need 3 sets? You didn't explain why Kanto should have 3 sets just because LGPE came out. Another issue is, the lack of Unova starters. A lot of Unova mon have made it to SM sets, sure, but not the starters and random legendaries are excluded. Plus some more popular Pokémon like Axew haven't been included either.Amid the flood of obligatory complaints about everything as the Pokebeach comment section does, here's my take on this, which is a tad more positive.
I wonder what the set name is alluding to. A set with reprints, like legendary treasures? A set with the kanto starters as a tag team? (Which as a collector sounds like a DREAM) Who can say right now, I'm excited to see what's coming up. I'm a collector, so I'm hoping for some nice cards to add to my collection.
Also, for people wondering why they're doing so much Kanto as of late, you all do realize Let's Go is the game that's out, right? It's the same deal that they did with ORAS sets, or BW2 sets back in the day. It's just what they do nowadays, make cards to go with the game that's most recent.
Don't get me wrong, I'd have loved a Unova set. I really would have. I'm happy unova got some representation in promo products and in sets, with Reshiram and Zekrom being part of the flagship tag teams, or the occasional Unova oddity that's coming around in sets, like Whimsicott or Sigilyph. But I'd have loved a set coming back to my favorite region. But the going back to old regions schtick is, sadly, over, because of let's go being out.
I just hope we get Kyurem, Black Kyurem, and Terrakion as GXs. I hope every legendary who hasn't gotten one gets one though because they missed that boat with EXs which I'm salty about.
Because it's the latest game in the series??? Your question is the same as asking why ORAS got three sets, or why HGSS got an entire block. It's par for the course at this point, Pokemon often make sets that coincide with their games, especially Post-DP era. It's been that way for the last, how many, 12 years? Do I necessarily think it should have 3 sets? I wouldn't say so, I'd rather they had continued doing sets with various regions as their focus, but I'm not surprised that they're doing it, because I'm being realistic and basing it off the last few times this has happened.OK, but why does Kanto need 3 sets?
