The Pokemon Company is planning a November 5th release date for the Pokemon CCG: XY--Phantom Forces Expansion, which will be available in boosters, sleeved boosters, and theme decks. Phantom Forces is the fourth major expansion for the English XY series. It follows right on the heels of the XY--Furious Fists release, which just shipped in August (see "'Pokemon CCG: XY--Furious Fists'").
The 110-card Phantom Forces set continues to feature Mega Evolution as powerful Pokemon-EX and centers around the Shadow Pokemon Gengar. The English set includes the 88 cards of the corresponding Japanese "Phantom Gate" release, the Japanese Hyper Metal Chain Deck, and various promotional cards to make up its total of 110 cards.
The Phantom Forces expansion will include potent 6 Pokemon-EX and two Mega Pokemon-EX. It brings in Dialga-EX and Aegislash-EX from the Japanese Hyper Metal Chain Deck and includes them with 4 Pokemon-EX from the Japanese Phantom Gate set, Gengar-EX, Manectric-EX, and two others. The expansion also includes a new mechanic card named “Spirit Link” that allows Mega Pokemon to evolve without ending the player’s turn.
The Phantom Forces Booster Box contains 36 ten-card booster packs, while the Sleeved Booster Master Carton contains 144 ten-card sleeved booster packs, and the 60-card Phantom Forces Theme Deck come packed eight to a box. Each 10-card Booster and Sleeved Booster Pack has an MSRP of $3.99, while the 60-card Theme Decks have an MSRP of $12.99.
