Looking at Rumors

With the soon to release set, leaks are already arriving. With this being the last set for Sword and Shield, many are expecting that it will be a rather large set. According to GFinity, there are still cards missing from Japan’s Paradigm Trigger, Lost Abyss, Incandescent Arcana, Unknown Origin, Dark Phantasm and VSTAR Climax. It is likely that the new set will arrive from these sets.

If you want to see what might arrive to Silver Tempest, Justin Basil has a list of what will likely arrive. Should it be accurate, seeing Dragapult make a comeback warms my heart, and I’m curious if Unown VSTAR will see any play. Justin Basil has also provided a handy list of cards leaving rotation.

Lastly, some cards have been making their way to the internet. The official Pokémon Twitter account has released the art for the new Lugia V, and it looks fantastic.

Trainers can pre-order the Silver Tempest ETB from The Pokémon Center.
