Hidden Fates: What we know so far

Published on 28 September 2019 at 11:25

Hidden Fates will come out in August, and it's based on the long-awaited GX Ultra Shiny set that was released in November 2018 in Japan. This set had 250 cards, that consisted of reprints, new cards and 100 secret rare cards, including gold cards and shiny cards..

GX Ultra Shiny had some new cards exclusive to that set, and some have been released in our sets already. What can we expect for Hidden Fates?

Full art Supporters

GX Ultra Shiny had 10 full art Supporter cards, 5 cards are not yet released here;

  • Aether Foundation Employee
  • Guzma 
  • Cynthia (Confirmed to be in Hidden Fates)
  • Fisherman 
  • Hiker 

It would make sense for them to be in the SV subset since they are most likely going to be alternate art cards. 

Main set list

The main set list has 68 cards. 39 cards of that will be from the Family Pokemon Card Game set. With Mewtwo GX being confirmed.Other confirmed or unreleased cards so far besides the Family Pokemon Card Game.

Giovanni's Exile full art was not included in SM10 Unbroken Bonds. Since Jessie & James has been confirmed for Hidden Fates, there is a high chance the full art version of Jessie & James might come. This could also give Giovanni's Exile a chance to be included in Hidden Fates. 

Brock / Misty Trainer Battle Decks;

  • Starmie GX
  • Onix GX
  • Geodude
  • Graveler
  • Golem
  • Brock's Pewter City Gym
  • Misty's Cerulean City Gym
  • Pokémon Center Lady
  • Brock's Training
  • Misty's Water Manipulation


Confirmed to be in Hidden Fates;

  • Moltres, Zapdos & Articuno GX
  • Jessie & James
  • Arbok

  • Weezing

Potentially in Hidden Fates;

  • Jessie & James full art
  • Giovanni's Exile full art
  • Dwebble (features Moltres)
  • Crustle (evolution of Dwebble)
  • Hoothoot (features Zapdos)
  • Noctowl (evolution of Hoothoot)
  • Ekans (features Articuno, pre-evolution of confirmed Arbok)
  • Koffing  (pre-evolution of confirmed Weezing)


That makes 61 cards so far out of 68. Maybe they could cut cards from Unified Minds, such as the Umbreon/Darkrai & Espeon/Deoxys GX Starter decks which also will be included in Unified Minds. 


That's it for now. Please mind this is speculation, this may not be fully true when Hidden Fates has been released. What do you think of this potential set list? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter.
