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.

As of today Double Crisis is tournament-legal, so I've completely updated SteveP's deck list program with every recent set as well as the latest XY promos. For those of you who don't know, the program allows you to create and print official deck lists for tournaments so that you don't have to write them out, saving you and the tournament tons of time. Be sure to use it the next time you go to a tournament! (You can access the program from the left menu, and then later from under the bleeding adventurer.)

Hoopa Unbound has officially been revealed in English, though of course fan sites have posted about it for months. Hoopa changes into Hoopa Unbound with the use of the Prison Bottle, and Hoopa Unbound will revert back to Hoopa after three days or if deposited into the PC.

Hoopa Unbound

Hoopa is a Mythical Pokémon that you cannot meet through ordinary gameplay in the world of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. It is the 720th Pokémon to be added to the Pokédex, and it would appear that it can change form.

Hoopa Unbound is the new and truest form of Hoopa, which until now has had its power sealed away. The rings it carries have the power to bend dimensions and are said to allow it to seize anything in the world.

After its transformation, Hoopa Unbound is far larger than it was in its previous appearance. It is easy to recognize by its six huge arms, and it is carrying a greater number of its signature dimension-bending rings.

Hoopa Unbound stats:

  • Category: Djinn Pokémon
  • Type: Psychic/Dark
  • Height: 21′ 04″ [6.5 m]
  • Weight: 1,080.3 lbs. [490.0 kg]
  • Ability: Magician

How does Hoopa regain its true form? As with the secret of meeting Hoopa itself, this mystery has yet to be solved...

Pokemon's YouTube channel has posted the first English teaser trailer for The Archdjinn of Rings - Hoopa, which will be titled Hoopa and the Clash of Ages in English. The trailer is an exact dub of the one that aired in Japan on March 5th. The English film will debut on Cartoon Network later this year and will run for 70 minutes. Last year, the first English trailer for the Diancie movie was also revealed in April, so this will probably become a trend.

The Mythical Pokémon Hoopa is the star of Pokémon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages! When Ash, Pikachu, and their friends visit a desert city by the sea, they meet the Mythical Pokémon Hoopa, who has the ability to summon things—including people and Pokémon—through its magic ring. After a scary incident, they learn a story about a brave hero who stopped the rampage of a terrifying Pokémon long ago. Now, the threat that has been bottled up for years is in danger of breaking loose again! Can Ash help his new friend overcome the darkness within...or will a dangerous secret erupt into a clash of legends?

As expected, Hoopa Unbound has been revealed in this month's CoroCoro as the "surprise factor" for The Archdjinn of Rings - Hoopa. The magazine also revealed that the Legendary Pokemon to be distributed with the movie are Kyogre, Groudon, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, and Kyurem. As stated a few months ago, you can download the Pokemon when you preorder tickets to the film and take your tickets to participating stores such as Pokemon Centers.

All of the Legendary Pokemon come at Level 100. Kyogre is holding a Choice Scarf and knows Water Spout, Thunder, Sheer Cold, and Ice Beam. Groudon is holding a Choice Band and knows Fire Punch, Solar Beam, Hammer Arm, and Rock Slide. Dialga is holding its Adamant Orb and knows Metal Burst, Overheat, Roar of Time, and Flash Cannon. Palkia is holding its Lustrous Orb and knows Earth Power, Aura Sphere, Spacial Rend, and Hydro Pump. Giratina is holding its Griseous Orb and knows Aura Sphere, Draco Meteor, Shadow Force, and Iron Head. Kyurem is holding a Life Orb and knows Glaciate, Scary Face, Draco Meteor, and Iron Head. Hopefully we'll get these Pokemon for download too!

As we posted in February, a new Mega Evolution pin blister featuring a pin of either Mega Rayquaza or Mega Latios will be released on May 29th. As you can see in the image, it will feature three booster packs. We probably won't see an image of Mega Latios' pin for a while.
