Japanese language Pokémon TCG continues to reveal cards from his September 2021 set. Fusion arts, a Mew-themed set, will feature Fusion as a third fighting style, adding to the pool of Pokémon Rapid Strike and Single Strike. The set also includes Genesect V, Hoopa V, Chandelure V and VMAX, Boltund V and VMAX, Greedent V and VMAX, and more. For fans of the English language Pokémon TCG, these revelations are notable as these cards are expected to appear in the English language from November 2021 Sword and Shield – Fusion Strike as well as early-year cards that appeared in the Inteleon and Gengar VMAX High Class decks. Let’s take a look at the secret rare news in the set.
Finally, let’s end this series with Fusion artShiny gold card. We have Flaaffy here! Now some may wonder why not Ampharos. The truth is, Flaaffy gets attention in the Pokemon JCC lately due to the playability of the card. Changing skies Includes a Flaaffy in the set as well as a Flaaffy Black Star holographic promotion in the build and battle boxes of the set, which is ideal for competitive players. That’s probably why Flaaffy was the choice here. Now I like it because I’m a fan of the whole Mareep range… but it’s a bit of an L for some major reason. The real draw here is seeing a shiny Pokemon on a gold card, and Flaaffy’s brilliant color palette is barely noticeable. To make matters worse, the rest of its evolutionary lineup consists of some of the best Shinies. Mareep and Ampharos are two of the best Shinies of all time. It would have been nice to see Ampharos get this card instead, but I understand why it ended up going in Flaaffy’s direction. Notably, if it is the only Shiny Gold Secret Rare in the English adaptation, Sword and Shield – Fusion Strike, it will be the only one Sword and Shield-ere defined to have only one Gold Pokémon. The others have two or three each.
Fusion arts released in Japan on September 24, 2021. Sword and Shield – Fusion Strike will be released internationally on November 12, 2021.
