Back in March, we covered that a new trademark was registered by Nintendo / Creatures Inc. / Game Freak:
- 仰天のボルテッカー / Gyōten no borutekkā
- Astonishing Volt Tackle (Voltteccer)
Update 30-5-2020: Added Official Dummy Pack image of the set.
Update 3-6-2020: Added Dummy pack images of: Sword & Shield VMAX Special Set, Astonishing Volt Tackle pack set and Pikachu Forest Pokémon Card Game Merchandise.
We thought it was videogame related, we were mistaken! It was trademarked for a Japanese September set! It is called Astonishing Volt Tackle.
It will release on September 18, 2020. It will contain 100 cards + Secret Rare cards. This indicates that it's a main expansion set, rather than a subset. It looks like August will be skipped.
The cover star looks like it will be Gigantamax Pikachu. Pikachu V / VMAX will very likely be featured in this set.
Along with the set, Gigantamax Pikachu Deck Sleeves, "Pikachu Forest" Deck Sleeves and Playmat merchandise has been listed.
We will update this article when more information / dummy artwork packs have been revealed.
Also alongside the set release, a Astonishing Volt Tackle pack set will release:
"A set of 5 extra packs and promo cards + Pokemon coins in a super-large package!"
- Astonishing Volt Tackle x 5 packs
- Promo cards x 1
- Pokemon coins x 1
Also on October 23, 2020. A Sword & Shield VMAX Special Set will release including:
- Promo card pack x 1 pack [1 Pokemon VMAX (4 random types) + 3 basic energy cards (Foil). Energy card is a type corresponding to Pokemon VMAX]
- 5 expansion packs: Sword/Shield, Rebellion Crash, Infinity Zone, Astonishing Volt Tackle (1 pack each)
- 3 types of enhanced expansion sets: VMAX Rising, Explosive Walker, Legends Heartbeat (1 pack each)
