The "Pokemon Symphonic Evolutions" tour is now expanding to many new locations through 2016 - and even internationally! A European tour is scheduled for spring 2016, though dates and locations have not been announced yet. It seems the first few runs last year were quite successful for the concert series to be taking off so rapidly (I was at the first one in Washington and it's definitely something you do not want to miss!).

According to Pokemon.com, tickets for all of the following locations go on sale this Saturday. But, Pokemon fans can purchase their tickets one day ahead of the general public this Friday by using the presale code "MELOETTA." Visit Pokemon.com to get direct links to the events.

The first three English cards from Roaring Skies have been revealed: Rayquaza-EX (#60/108), M Rayquaza-EX (#61/108), and Double Dragon Energy (#97/108). If you've followed our posts about the Japanese set, these cards should come as no surprise to you.

June 17th will see the release of three "Hoenn Power Tins" featuring either the "speedy Sceptile-EX, fire-bright Blaziken-EX, or unstoppable Swampert-EX!", as the product description states. No product image is available yet.

Sceptile-EX has not been released in Japan yet, but if you've been following my news posts, you'll know Swampert-EX is a Japanese Gym Challenge promo while Blaziken-EX is being released in an Emerald Break blister pack (both have also received a Mega Evolution card). With this news, Japan will probably see Sceptile-EX and M Sceptile-EX very soon as well. The only question now is how we'll receive their Mega Evolution cards.

Blaziken-EX Promo

Blaziken-EX - Fire - HP170
Basic Pokemon

[R][C] Screaming Fist: 30 damage. You may attach an Energy card from your discard pile to this Pokemon.
[R][C][C][C] Fire Storm: 100+ damage. Flip a coin for each [R] Energy attached to this Pokemon. This attack does 20 more damage for each heads.

When a Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Water (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2


Swampert-EX Promo

Swampert-EX - Water - HP180
Basic Pokemon

[W][C][C] Mud Gulp: 40+ damage. Reveal the top 4 cards of your deck. This attack does 40 more damage for each [W] Energy you find. Shuffle the 4 cards back into your deck.
[W][W][C][C] Hydro Tackle: 120 damage. This Pokemon does 20 damage to itself.

When a Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Grass (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 3

The Roaring Skies one-pack blisters will come with either a holo XY47 Heliolisk promo or a holo XY48 Meowstic promo! Meowtic was available at Japan's May Gym Challenge tournaments last year, meaning we're getting the card a year later, while Heliolisk was available a few months later at September's tournaments. The blister packs will be released on May 6th with Roaring Skies.

The two promos join promos of Pangoro and Regirock, which will be released in the set's three-pack blisters. This will thus be the first time in several years that every promo card in a set's blister packs is brand new and not an alternate holo reprint of a card from an earlier set.

XY47 Heliolisk and XY48 Meowstic Promos in Roaring Skies Blister Packs

Heliolisk - Lightning - HP90
Stage 1 - Evolves from Helioptile

Ability: Dry Skin
Any damage done to this Pokemon by an attack from 1 of your opponent's [W] Pokemon is reduced by 30 (after applying Weakness and Resistance).

[L][C][C] Hyper Beam: 60 damage. Flip a coin. If heads, discard an Energy attached to your opponent's Active Pokemon.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: Metal (-20)
Retreat: 2


Meowstic – Psychic – HP90
Stage 1 – Evolves from Espurr

Ability: Mysterious Ears
If this Pokemon is your Active Pokemon and is damaged by an opponent’s attack (even if this Pokemon is Knocked Out), the Attacking Pokemon is now Confused.

[P][C][C] Psycho Blast: 60 damage. Flip a coin. If heads, discard 1 Energy card attached to your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

Weakness: Psychic (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1

The prerelease promo for Roaring Skies will be XY46, Ancient Trait Altaria. Like prerelease promos of the recent past, the card features exclusive artwork that has not been released in Japan. The card also reveals the official wording of Delta Evolution, which is "You may play this card from your hand to evolve a Pokemon during your first turn or the turn you play that Pokemon." Prereleases for the set take place the last weekend of April and the first weekend of May. The set will hit store shelves on May 6th.

Bandit Ring Pokemon XY7 Set

Starring Hoopa, Japan's next set is named Bandit Ring and will be released on June 20th, a month before The Archdjinn of Rings - Hoopa debuts in theaters. The set will contain 97 cards (excluding secret rares). Like usual, each booster pack will contain five cards and cost 150 yen.

Going by the booster pack's image, the set will feature some Legendary Pokemon from the Hoopa movie, including Primal Kyogre, Primal Groudon, and Mega Rayquaza. However, the booster pack's image is obviously a placeholder for now. Perhaps this is because the final image will feature Hoopa Unbound. Hoopa has already been revealed, is confirmed to be in the set, and would be the obvious choice to show on the pack artwork. But for some reason they've decided to show us a teaser instead. They may be hiding something, especially since full pack artwork has been revealed for every set in recent memory.

But the Hoopa set isn't the only news! In the same vein as Shiny Collection, a special "Legendary Holo Concept Pack" will be released on July 18th, the same day as the Hoopa movie. The mini-set will feature 27 cards (excluding secret rares) and will include Legendary Pokemon from the film. Again revealed as a teaser image, the booster pack shows Latios, Latias, Dialga, Regigigas, Arceus, Reshiram, Black Kyurem, Hoopa, and Pikachu as being included in the set. It's going to be a beautiful legendary jamboree! Each booster pack will come with four cards for 186 yen. All of the Legendary Pokemon will be holo.

Also releasing on July 18th is an "Emboar-EX vs. Togekiss-EX" deck. It'll come with two 30-card decks for 1,200 yen. Additionally, a deck box and pack of 32 sleeves featuring Hoopa (most likely Hoopa Unbound) will also be released on July 18th. Both will cost 362 yen.

To discuss this news, check out this thread on our forum!

German Gamestops will be giving away codes for a shiny Charizard between April 1st and July 3rd, and it's possible other countries will receive the Charizard too. It will probably match the shiny Charizard given out at Pokemon Centers between December 11th and January 16th to celebrate the grand opening of the Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo. The shiny Charizard comes at Level 36, knows Overheat, Solar Beam, Focus Blast, and Hold Hands, and is holding Charizardite Y. Thanks goes to PokeBeach user Event Fan for the scan below!

A new "Rayquaza-EX Box" will be released on June 3rd for $19.99. It will come with a holo Rayquaza-EX promo, a jumbo version of the same card, and four booster packs. While we can't say for sure, chances are the promo will be the Rayquaza-EX from CoroCoro, as all other Rayquaza-EX are associated with Emerald Break and its accompanying deck (meaning they'll likely be reserved for Roaring Skies in May).

Rayquaza-EX from CoroCoro

Rayquaza-EX - Colorless - HP170
Basic Pokemon

[C][C] Mega Awakening: Search your deck for a M Rayquaza card and put it into your hand. Shuffle your deck afterwards.
[C][C][C][C] Aero Scream: 130 damage. Flip a coin. If tails, discard 2 Energy attached to this Pokemon.

When a Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Lighting (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 2

Update (5:00 PM) - The Genesect movie was also added!

The third season of Black & White has been added to Netflix. This is following the debut of Indigo League and Black & White's first seasons last March 1st and their second seasons last June 1st. I wonder if / when we'll get some more Pokemon movies and the rest of the Orange League.

Black and White Season 3
