We now have exclusive images of Primal Clash's booster packs and theme decks. The theme decks will feature holo versions of Kyogre or Groudon, which will be non-holos in the set. The Groudon theme deck focuses on Fighting and Lightning-type Pokemon and its name is partially revealed in the image to be "___ Pulse." Kyogre's theme deck features Water and Fire-type Pokemon and is named "____ Core."

Two of Primal Clash's booster packs will feature the exact same artwork of Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre from Japan's Tidal Storm and Gaia Volcano booster packs. This will be the first time America's booster packs use the same artwork from the Japanese packs. It is currently unknown which two Pokemon will be featured on the other two Primal Clash booster packs.

Update (11:30 PM) - All known cards thus far added.

New Ancient Trait cards from XY5 Gaia Volcano and Tidal Storm were revealed in a new commercial during Pokemon Get TV today. Unfortunately our recording of the commercial became corrupt, but Twitter users 8sana8 and CHARI_LvX managed to capture a few quick photos.

Cards revealed include a Bunnelby and Medicham with Torchic's Ω Multi Strike, Electrike with Ω Barrier, Gorebyss with ɑ Growth, Tentacool with an unreadable ɑ Ancient Trait, a regular Azumarill, and a clear shot of a previously unreadable Crawdaunt. The HD commercial should be uploaded to Pokemon's official Japanese YouTube channel this week, so we'll have clear images of the cards soon.

Everyone having fun with ORAS?

The February issue of CoroCoro Ichiban magazine will include a Regirock promo card with an Ancient Trait. The card is possibly a reprint of a Regirock in the upcoming Gaia Volcano and Tidal Storm set and if so will likely have a companion Regice and Registeel.

Boston Worlds 2015

Pokemon has announced that the Worlds 2015 Championships will be held at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts from Friday, August 21st, through Sunday, August 23rd. This will be the first Worlds with no Last Chance Qualifier for the TCG.

Update - Pokemon has removed the page with the Worlds info used in this news story, so it probably wasn't meant to be seen yet and may not be finalized.

The Pokémon Trading Card Game World Championships is an invitation-only event, meaning only those players who earn an official invite from Pokémon Organized Play will be able to compete for the title of Pokémon World Champion.

Players who do not receive an official invite from Pokémon Organized Play can compete in side events, watch the main event, or participate in other great activities! There will not be a last chance qualifier at the 2015 Pokémon World Championships. Specific information for side events will be released at a later time.

Hynes Convention Center
900 Boylston Street
Boston, MA 02115
Phone: 617-954-2000

For the U.S., Canada, and Europe, Masters will need 300 CP to receive an invite, Seniors 250 CP, and Juniors 200 CP. Latin America, Asia Pacific, and South Africa will need 100 less points for each division.

Prize support has been drastically increased this year as well:

1st: $25,000
2nd: $15,000
3rd and 4th: $7,500
5th–8th: $5,000
9th–16th: $2,500
17th–32nd: $1,500
