Pokemon News Issue #62

Welcome to the newest issue of Pokemon News. After having to push through the news drought that occurred for the last two weeks, I finally have some stuff to talk about, so let’s get into it.

In TCG news, one new set has been announced and the U.S is getting a new set too. The first is a completely new TCG set dubbed “Bandit King”. This set will hit store shelves in Japan in mid June, feature over 97 new cards, focusing on Hoopa and various other legendary Pokemon. The next set is a Japan set that will finally see its western appearance. The Japanese “Emerald Break” is coming to the U.S at the end of May under the name “Roaring Skies”. The set focuses on dragon type Pokemon, primarily Rayquaza and Mega Rayquaza. Look forward to those when they drop.
