2016: THE YEAR OF THE GIVE US ALL YOUR MONEY CONTINUES
A new “Premium Champion Pack: EX x M x BREAK” will be released in Japan on April 16th for 463 yen. Although the name doesn’t imply it, it’s actually a full-blown set with 131 cards and nine Basic Energy! And every single card in the booster pack will be holo! We have no idea what this set will feature, but the booster pack image seems to imply Legendary Pokemon.
A new “Blastoise Mega Battle Special Pack” will also be released in Japan on April 16th for 900 yen. It will come with two Awakening of the Psychic Kings booster packs, an unspecified Pokemon-EX (Blastoise?), and one of the aforementioned Premier Champion booster packs. There’s a catch with this product though: you can only buy it you participate in one of Japan’s Blastoise Mega Battle tournaments. You will need to show proof of your registration ticket in order to purchase it.
Well, Z is obviously not officially confirmed at all, but it’s pretty much a shoe in because of all the Zygarde information/reveals we have had. I also remember them trademarking ‘Delta Emerald’ a few months after OR/AS came out.
I’d love if they somehow fused a Z/Delta Emerald game where both stories were built upon.
It’s interesting to see them mix things up with distribution method. I can really appreciate that. Definitely a huge part of the fun of Pokemon history and collecting, in my opinion, so they’ve done us a massive service by doing something extra cool with it.
