Pokemon also posted an example of what can be pulled out of one booster box of the Japanese set:

Can't wait for this set, the alternate arts look amazing with it!

Probably just going to open my 3 or 4 boxes and hope for the best. From a pre-order perspective I wish pokemon TCG would release a booster box so I could open 1 and keep the other one sealed 🤣

I'm here in Japan, and wondering if I will buy much of this set. I'll probably buy 1 box at least but so far, without seeing the alt arts yet, Radiant Eevee and Venusaur are the only chase cards that really have my attention. Stil a solid set though! The regular commons and uncommons are amazing anyways.

Isn’t there just two alternate arts for this set? The Mewtwo and Conkeldurr ones? And certainly the Conkeldurr one is pretty unimpressive

Interesting that you're excited for this. Do you think the cards are themed well enough for GO?

Personally there are only like 5 cards that show any gameplay - Ivysaur with lures, Natu with the buddy system, Blissey with gyms, Bibarel with photobombs and Aipom with catching. At a stretch you could also include Sylveon with gifts and Larvitar with the golden razz berry. & include the 4 trainers.

The other cards could be in any set ever. N-DESIGN Inc.'s cards may be reminiscent of the GO trailers or Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee trailers, but has nothing to do with gameplay. And obviously VSTAR, FA, RR and Gold are cards will never look properly themed.

Well, that's not true either. They could have mixed it up like CE FAs for Vileplume, Solgaleo & Lunala etc., but instead they copy pasted.

A lot of the art is pretty mediocre, and the alt arts (or what we've seen) and the radiant cards are particularly horrendous. It's like Steam Siege2.0. The only redeeming part of the set is it's a special set so it won't be stuffed into collection boxes like Steam Siege was

The pandemic actually made Go playable for the last two years, but 2022 is when Niantic decided that they needed to undo any good will they'd built up.
I just enjoyed playing GO since 2020 and Niantic starts ruining my fun onto me, kinda like someone took away the candy from a child
