An image of September’s Japanese Pokemon TCG set and October’s 25th anniversary set has leaked online and gives us details on what to expect with the most hyped Pokemon set of the year.
The Mew dummy pack art translates to “Fusion Arts”, which looks to have been trademarked earlier this year. According to the image, the set will release in Japan on 24th September 2021 and will include 100 cards in the set before Secret Rares. This is likely to see the inclusion of last weeks revealed V-UNION cards.
As for the “25th Anniversary Collection”, this leak shows a picture of Pikachu and 28 cards in the regular set releasing on 22nd October 2021. This small set would line up with information that has been revealed for the English Set by Pokébeach. This could mean that our 25th anniversary set is a smaller set with a host of fan-favorite Pokemon including Pikachu, Dialga, Palkia, Zacian, and Zamazenta.
Packs will cost 297 yen which is double that of a regular Japanese booster pack, the reason for this is unknown.
The translation of the information(by Twitter user @toinelay) highlights key points from the Pokemon 25th Anniversary set releasing on October 22nd 2021:
