Astral Radiance & Future Trainer Galleries' Speculation

There was a leaked photo (now deleted) on Reddit showcasing TG29 & TG30 featuring Ice Rider and Shadow Rider Calyrex Gold cards from VMAX Climax. Presumably they will be from Astral Radiance as opposed to another set further into the future. If so, that means another 30 card trainer gallery.
The Brilliant Stars gallery breakdown is 12 CHRs, 11 CSRs, 5 FA trainers and 2 gold cards.

There was also a clear theme of Eevees + Urshifus + new cards for the most part. Anything outside of those were from earlier sets mainly Battle Styles and earlier. If they followed the same ratio and theme here, what would that look like?

Going with a theme of Chilling Reign & Battle Region, but the only issue is that sets older than Battle Styles will be rotated out, so not sure if they should get priority or they just won’t come. There are quite a number of cards that are outstanding - especially CSRs. You would think that they would move to Evolving Skies after this, but then Pikachu needs to come in somewhere. Probably a set with Zacian/Zamazenta/Eternatus would make a good closer but then they’ll all be rotated if it came with the year’s final set.

bro i’m ngl, pokemon has been so unpredictable with this TG subset. i would guess the calyrex V and Vmax CSRs since the gold cards were leaked. after that, no clue. probably mightyena, hoothoot, wydreer, and kleavor for CHRs from battle region. the fact that druddigon was in brilliant stars, but the CHR was not makes this all so confusing. you would think charizard CHR would have been in brilliant stars, but it wasn’t.

perhaps all of the three birds + the calyrexes will be in the TG of this set, but then again, i could see them putting the birds in their own box.

honestly no clue

Rotation doesn’t normally happen until August/September so there will be some time to use the “D” cards after Astral Radiance releases in May.

The Trainer Gallery should have all the Chilling Reign ones at least, including the Galarian V Birds and the Calyrexs.

Important question: Is Galar Friends ever coming to English?

I can wait but I need to know a definite answer! Thanks in advance.

Probably not as we didnt get the Alola friends one. If we were to get it, it’d probably be in whatever the last SWSH era set is, or in some sort of collection box.

Japan will definitely have a closer set akin to Tag Team All Stars. I am assuming VMAX Climax Part 2.

And I’m not sure if those cards will come. Will TPCi give us TGs in the Scarlet Violet sets from SWSH?

You would hope so but so many cards failed to make it over and it’s now been 3 years.

i actually wouldn’t be surprised if it was more like shining star v 2 unfortunately. either way, i agree that it’ll make things awkward if there is a holiday special set that we dont get around the same time because its gen 9 time in december in japan and march 2023 internationally

I guess, how much of a taboo is it that old generation cards are in new generation sets?
I would like to think none, especially with regulation marks and all, but TTAS is the precedent for it not making it over.
