Pokemon TCG exclusively revealed that we will be getting another holiday set this 2020 year!
According to the information we received, we will see pin boxes and an Elite Trainer Box release on September 18th. On October 2nd, we will get some sort of box collections. On November 1st, we will get a “Premium GX Box.” This information is subject to change.
This is not the first time a holiday set has featured “outdated” cards. In 2019 year’s Hidden Fates set, we received the shiny Pokemon from Japan’s GX Ultra Shiny set, which was released a year earlier in 2018 in Japan.
It’s likely our holiday set will also be comprised of cards from Japan’s upcoming Legendary Heartbeat set, as our sets are typically made of cards from Japan’s “special” sets. Legendary Heartbeat will feature Legendary and Mythical Pokemon, it’s a movie set, and it’ll feature a new type of rarity called “Amazing Rare.” Japan’s Shining Legends set featured shiny Pokemon and was released to commemorate the 20th movie; it was spun into our Shining Legends holiday set, so I think the same will happen with Legendary Heartbeat.
These are only the initial English products we’ve learned about. Last year’s Hidden Fates saw the release of pin collections, tins, an Elite Trainer Box, Great and Ultra Ball Collections, GX Collections, an Ultra-Premium Collection, and a Premium Powers Collection.We should have more details about the set around July, including its name and logo.
Although it was expected, the fact one of the products mentions “GX” means we will get the unreleased cards from Japan’s TAG All Stars set. There are 7 Gold Card Tag Team GX cards confirmed, one of those is a Reshiram & Charizard GX Gold Card. Also a male version of Welder SR has been revealed. There are 53 total secret rare cards in Tag All Stars. Below got some card image from Japan’s TAG All Stars set:
