Release of SM2 Brings Some Amazing Cards

Recently we got a peek at the cards in the newly released Japanese set, SM2. I’m sure most of you have seen at least a few of these by now, but a brand new set warrants another look. I will include a few in the article here from various Twitter posts and if you’d like to see them all, there will be a video at the bottom of the article that has everything else that has been released.

We don’t know what exactly this will mean for the next English set just yet. If we have everything that’s been released in our English set, we would have over 35 Ultra Rares, Full Arts, or Secret Rares. That just sounds outrageous. But only time will tell. I’ll be sure to keep you guys updated as we get news about English releases.

First off, we have the Wishiwashi GX/Full Art. The first card of Wishiwashi we have in its School Form.


Next up, we have a Secret Rare Fighting Energy. The Metal and Psychic Energy Secret Rares from Sun and Moon Base Set are really holding up price-wise so it’s nice to see TPCI continuing the trend. We also have a Secret Rare Lightning Energy in the set. We saw a Secret Rare Double Colorless Energy and Grass Energy in SM1+ which we still have not had in English. So potentially 4 Secret Rare Energies for the English SM2?


So what do you guys think about the new cards? Are you excited to own them for yourself? And what are your thoughts on the controversial amount of Secret Rares in the Sun and Moon sets so far?
