    Serebii.net's newest update tells of the next new TCG set in Japan. The set , along with two minidecks, comes out July 1st (although, for all we know, that could be tentative). The minidecks feature Rayquaza and Deoxys and so the main set most likely has the theme of space, or more specifically Movie 7. Personally, I am looking forward to this set. I've been waiting for Deoxys in the TCG and this will debut him.
     
  2. interesting. If the new set comes out in japan on july 1st i wonder how long till nintendo usa starts pumping it off the press and into stores. Im guessing just after worlds so the fans have something new to work with for next season.

    We need to see some pokemon released that have only been "ex". like Groudon, Kyogre and the Regis. Perhaps it will be a set with all 21 legnedary pokemon in it, i mean only Jirachi, Latias and Latios have been made in Ex series' and nitendo promo so far,

    as standard cards......

    Articuno
    Zapdos
    Moltres
    Mewtwo
    Mew
    Raikou
    Entei
    Suicune
    Lugia
    Ho-oh
    Celebi
    Regice
    Regirock
    Registeel
    Latias
    Latios
    Kyogre
    Groudon
    Rayquaza
    Jirachi
    Deoxys

    And maybe...

    Lugia ex
    Ho-oh ex
    Deoxys ex

    It would be lovely to get all those into one set, and they dont all need to be holofoil either. alot of them havent been made with e-codes yet because of this, maybe it will get hold of the expanded pokedex for the Regis, etc.

    I would like this very much, but it is actually quite unlikely. I have also read that information on Serebii and i look forward to it.

    As FoTL has been released, it was about time some new cards were announced. I don't mind if these things never stop, its only money i spend on them!

    anyone know where i can get FoTL scans yet?

    I was afraid of this happening. It would seem likely that the next USA/International set will not be out before Worlds possibly giving Japanese players a potienial tactical advantage for the World Championships. Thoughts on that?

    There will be restrictions placed upon Japanese players as to what they are allowed to play. The World Championship main tournament is a Modified format and as such will go by the current Modified rules of that day. Generally, if a Japanese player wins an invitation into Worlds, they should have very few problems adjusting to the rules of the event. Now adjusting to a entirely new format and the metagame is a whole 'nother ball park.

    When is the WC? I don't think the Gym Set will be out by then, but Breaking Blue Sky is out on July 1st.

    I really couldnt imagine how it will be for Japanese players at Worlds. Does anyone know the current format that is implemented in Japan/ what decks are actually played. I mean for them it would be like the US going from Rocket-On to Neo-On, a completely different format, completely different metagame, I have to wonder if that gives the US/Europe players an advantage, hmm it obv. does.
