    With the leak info about M-Sableye and Tyranitar and Slowbro and Psyduck, my mind is confused because it exceeds the 8-Tag Team GX limit that we could expect from Unified Minds. I want to know which of the 9 TTGX will be eliminated when the August Set is released internationally?
    • Mew & Mewtwo
    • Rowlet & Alolan Exeggutor
    • Garchomp & Giratina
    • Articuno & Zapdos & Moltres
    • Deoxys & Espeon
    • Darkrai & Umbreon
    • Raichu & Alolan Raichu
    • M-Sableye & Tyranitar
    • Slowpoke & Psyduck
    The bold ones were the officially confirmed during te press release

    Nothing's stopping them from having 9 tag teams. I would think none of them are getting dropped

    The set description says 8 Tag Team GX, that's what Rhyperior is referencing here.

    I went looking for that in the set description and couldn't find it

    I think they're going to push the legendary bird trio into Hidden Fates to drive collectors to the set and crank up sales of the pin collections and tins featuring the packs.

    I feel like it'll be Slowpoke&Psyduck since it's the most gimmicky of them all, I could see it in a promo box just like Margikarp&Wailord was

    I agree. Take your memes and make collection boxes, as they say.

    My guess would be Birds-GX, partly because it's the only GX ever with 3 cards and partly because it's a great opportunity to give the Kanto bird trio their own separate product, something big, shiny and expensive like the Island Guardians Box.

    Probably this. Although @MasterGallade and @Lord Goomy could have a point.

    I'm casting my vote on Slowpoke/Psyduck honestly. These two are super popular Pokemon and I think they're going to equate that to marketability, thus, making a product out of it. It's why they pulled FA Zard/Blastoise, Alt. Reshizard, etc. etc. They're all immensely popular Pokemon. Whichever one they do will probably pull a Lucario GX and push the FA/RR to SM12.

    This also raises a point here, it's what they did with Magikarp/Wailord and (to an extent) Snorlax GX.

    EDIT: I guess I could see the Bird trio being pulled instead. I'm a bit leaning towards Psypoke being pulled, but the Bird trio could make sense too. At least it's getting narrowed down.

    They'd definitely advertise the Bird-GXs. It's the first trio GX and it has 3 popular Gen 1 Legends. No way it'll be in the set without advertising them

    So it seems that the Birds will be pulled out in the main set. That is also my opinion. No way that the Tri team GX could make debut in the main set. I'm surprise if they did it.

    Since we're only getting eight, the ninth must appear in some other type of product. Legendary Birds and Alolan Raichu/Raichu both feel like cards that could go into different products, the other two aren't nearly as marketable. If I had to take a guess, the legendary birds seem prime for a premium product. An Alolan Raichu & Raichu GX product would be interesting, but I'm not sure that's as likely, and while my reasoning isn't perfect, we did just receive a Pikarom product too...

    100% agreement @The Rhyperior

    I feel ChuChu is the most marketable. Easily put in a promo box.

    I think the birds got pushed back into Hidden Fates. I find it very hard to believe they wouldn't put the first (and so far only) triple Tag Team on a booster pack.

    I think this one hint, but the Night Unison art wasn't in Unbroken Bonds either, although Greninja & Zoroark-GX are 2 very popular Pokémon.
    I don't know if the alternate art birds card is especially hard to pull in the Japanese set to make it similar to a gold card, but it could add a lot to any set or product.
