With the newest Sword and Shield set Matchless Fighters coming out this Friday I figured a thread was in order. There are some decently hype cards in the set including more single strike and rapid strike cards as well as these great Galarian birds secret rares! What do people think of the set? What cards are people excited for? Personally it doesn’t seems as hype as Single and Rapid Strike, but there are some solid cards I want to pick up. Let me know what everybody thinks!
The secret rares for the set should leak tonight (US time). Usually we start to see them around 10pm ET but it’s different for each set. I love set reveal night, back in the XY era I was so hyped for it but during Sun & Moon it was a lot less exciting as the cards were so bland and predictable. Now it’s back to being awesome with special arts!!
I read a story post on instagram by someone I can’t remember about an hour ago saying that the Zapdos has been banned because of it looking so similar to Road Runner. I thought it was Andrew from Card Secret but no such story exists now (unless he deleted it).
Has anyone else heard that at all?
EDIT - it hasn’t been pulled, I fell for a joke that someone put saying it was, I’m an idiot…
