Update (10:00 AM, Friday) - Oh wow I have no memory, I already posted Thundurus-EX and Togekiss two weeks ago. XD Articuno is new at least. :p

Pokemon.com has revealed English images of Articuno (#16), Thundurus-EX (#26), and Togekiss (#46) from Roaring Skies. Prereleases for the set start this weekend. To find one near you, use the Event Locator on Pokemon.com. Prereleases are fun events and anyone can attend!

We will have Roaring Skies scans late tomorrow night in U.S. time after the first international prereleases start, so be sure to check back!

Nintendo Dream Magazine Interview about Flygon

The official Nintendo Dream magazine recently conducted an interview with Gamefreak's Ken Sugimori, Shigeru Ohmori (OR/AS game director), Shigeki Morimoto (game developer), and Kazumasa Iwao (OR/AS map designer). In the interview, Ken Sugimori revealed that the reason Mega Flygon doesn't exist is because Gamefreak was experiencing, well, artist's block! Thanks goes to Sean T. for the translation below and @karubiimunomono for providing the magazine scan!

Sugimori: For Aarune, he needed to have a Pokemon that could use the moves Fly and Secret Power, which are perfect moves for finding Secret Bases. And the only Hoenn Pokemon that wasn't used by a key character that fit that criteria was Flygon. It does not Mega Evolve, but I really like Flygon.

Interviewer: Key characters often carry a Pokemon that can Mega Evolve, but Flygon is an exception, right?

Sugimori: Flygon has had the potential to have a Mega Evolution since XY, but we were unable to complete a design and so it was dropped from consideration.

So chances are that if Gamefreak ever does complete a design they're happy with, we'll get Mega Flygon?

Bandit Ring Gardevoir

Distributors have uploaded images of Bandit Ring's booster box image as well as a higher resolution image of the booster pack image I posted yesterday. The booster box shows Cottonee on the side, meaning Whimsicott will be in the set. Gardevoir is also shown on the side, so we'll get the first Stage 2 one of the XY era (even though Gardevoir just had an EX and Mega Evolution in the set before last - the TCG has always loved Gardevoir and its pre-evolutions!). The set will be released on June 20th, with Legendary Holo Collection coming out July 18th.

As expected, Bandit Ring's booster pack features Hoopa Unbound, as revealed on Pokemon Get TV a few moments ago. This is the first official reveal of the set. As such, we may get a Bandit Ring update on the official Pokemon Card website this Thursday, so be sure to check back here! As with recent Japanese sets, we'll probably get the same booster pack artwork for our August set (if it isn't considered too demonic :p).

Pokemon Center Hiroshima

The ninth Pokemon Center will be opening in Japan this summer, this time in Hiroshima! It will be located in Sogo Hiroshima Shop's Main Building on the sixth floor. The store's mascots will be Pikachu and shiny Gyarados.

There are currently eight open Pokemon Centers in Japan: in Tokyo (opened in 1998, moved in 2007, and then moved again in 2014 and renamed "Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo"), in Nagoya (2002), in Fukuoka (2003), in Sapporo (2005), in Yokohama (2005), in Osaka (2010), in Tohoku (2011), and in Tokyo Bay (2013).

Update (10:40 PM) - Added Tyrantrum-EX, which was also previewed on the official Pokemon-Card site!

As with Japan's Gym Challenge tournaments every few months, a new promo pack containing five cards will be given out to participating players between May and July. There will be a total of 12 promo cards, with Tyrantrum-EX and Dragonair being the first previewed on the official Pokemon-Card site.

Tyrantrum-EX is too small to read, but Dragonair is a reprint of the one from Emerald Break with new artwork. Japan will likely get Sceptile-EX through this promo pack as well since America is getting the card in our summer tin.

Tyrantrum-EX Promo Dragonair Promo

Dragonair – Dragon – HP80
Stage 1 – Evolves from Dratini

[G] Shed: Heal 30 damage from this Pokemon.
[G][L][C] Slam: 60x damage. Flip 2 coins. This attack does 60 damage times the number of heads.

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

Japan will also be hosting illustrator autograph sessions during some of its Rayquaza Mega Battle tournaments next month. Those who attend will have the opportunity to purchase a limited edition deck box and pin featuring Mega Rayquaza for 950 yen and 500 yen, respectively. The deck box is exactly like our Elite Trainer Deck Shield tins, including the compartment on top for holding dice and damage counters. Perhaps the Japanese asked our American TCG manufactures for a favor? :p

Players will also be able to exchange some of their Emerald Break points cards (included in the set's booster packs) for the shiny Rayquaza-EX promo that they could have originally received if they shipped in their points cards through a mail-in campaign. So we'll probably see more hit eBay.

As with every set, Roaring Skies will see the release of two Ultra PRO portfolios to store your cards. There will be a 9-pocket version and a 4-pocket version, each with 10 pages that can hold 90 cards and 40 cards respectively (or double that if you double-load each pocket). The 9-pocket version features the booster pack artwork of Mega Rayquaza and Mega Gallade while the 4-pocket version features Mega Latios and Deoxys.
