Okay, so I feal Like MFM should be checking out some of the new Sets coming out for the Pokemon TCG. So to start it off i would like to do it on the New Set: Legends: Heart Gold Soul Silver.

Basic Information:

Pokemon TCG Legends: HeartGold Soul Silver will be released in Febuary 2010

-This set marks a new set block - LEGEND. The previous set block was Platinum, and the one before was Diamond and Pearl.

-The “set” is divided into two mini-sets - HeartGold Collection and SoulSilver Collection. Our English set will combine both sets. Each pack costs 315 yen and contains 11 cards, including two holos (one regular holo and one reverse holo) and a redesigned basic Energy card.
-A “Random Basic Pack” containing 60 cards will be released at the same time for 1400 yen. 30 of the 60 will be random cards from the set, six of those 30 will be holo cards, and the other 30 cards will be basic Energy cards. The pack also comes with a bonus Red Gyarados card.

Changes to the TCG:

-Legendary Pokemon cards now replace LV.X Pokemon - they are oversized Pokemon split into two cards that you have to place together to use. One card features a huge chunk of artwork of the Pokemon while the other card features its attacks - putting them together forms one complete card, as seen in the images below. For the purpose of using powers and Trainers, Legendary Pokemon cards are treated as their own subclass, much like Basic Pokemon cards, Evolution cards, LV.X cards, and so on. To bring a Legendary Pokemon into play, you must collect both halves of its card, then play both cards at the same time onto your Bench. Due to the nature of Legendary cards, they can’t be played during setup. The two halves of the card are numbered differently, but since they both have the same name, it’s likely that you can only run a total of four halves in a deck (two complete cards).

-Great Pokemon, a new type of card, are described as Pokemon that “specialize in battling,” but they do not seem to have any sort of new mechanics tied to them as of yet. They are simply regular Pokemon cards. You can evolve Totodile to Croconaw and then to Feraligatr (a Great Pokemon) like any other evolutionary line. Perhaps they can be considered stronger Pokemon, as evidenced by Feraligatr’s Pokemon Power. There will be eight in the set.
Starting with this set, Japan will now get reverse holos in their booster packs. Each booster pack comes with 11 cards: one holo, one reverse holo, one energy, and eight other cards from the set. With every two booster packs a person buys of this set, they will receive one of six promo cards. Three new tournament promos will also be released after this set is released - Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr.

-“Trainer” cards are now called “Goods,” which is the Japanese Pokemon term for “Items.” Thus, we will now have Goods cards, Supporters, Stadiums, and Tools. This is probably to clear up past confusion caused by calling all non-Pokemon and Energy cards “Trainer Cards” while also having basic “Trainer” cards. Existing “Trainers” will be treated as Goods when interacting with cards from the LEGEND block.
For this set block, each card will feature a gold and silver border in obvious reference to HeartGold and SoulSilver. The template for Pokemon cards is now also slightly updated - the evolution box is next to the Pokemon’s name and the coloring behind the HP is now white. Great Pokemon have a special border around the artwork, the artwork seems to be zoomed-in to their faces, and their names are holo.
Set Information
-There are 70 cards in each of the two mini-sets.
-One secret card per set - Alph Lithograph.
-No overlap between the two sets, except for eight basic Energy cards.
-The sets will feature redesigned basic Energy cards. Each Energy type will also apparently feature silhouettes of certain Pokemon.
-The English set should have 150 cards, excluding any promos added in.

As expected, the next English set is HeartGold & SoulSilver, retaining the same name as the Japanese set but without the "LEGEND" title. The only change known so far is that "Great Pokemon" will now be called "Pokemon Prime." The set will be released in stores on February 10th, meaning prereleases will take place the weekends of January 30th and February 6th. Based on the set's release date, we can also expect the video games to hit store shelves within a month or two afterwards in perhaps March or early April.

As with all sets, there will be several products sold alongside its release: a three-pack blister pack with an unknown promo card, a poster pack with either a Lugia or Ho-Oh promo, and three Spring 2010 Collector tins with four booster packs and alternate art promo reprints of either Prime Meganium, Prime Typhlosion, or Prime Feraligatr.
