Salamence also revealed as Blister Promo
The first images of the XY Trainer Kit have finally been released, after previously knowing only the release date. Releasing March 12, 2014, the XY Trainer Kit will feature two Half Decks: one featuring Sylveon and the Fairy-type and one featuring Noivern and the Darkness-type and Psychic-type. The booster pack that is usually included in Trainer Kits has been removed; as a result the price has been lowered to $8.99. Also revealed is one of the XY Blister Packs: a Single Pack Blister featuring Salamence from Dragon Vault. Images of the two new products can be seen below.
The Sylveon in the Trainer Kit is most likely a reprint of the Sylveon XY Promo, while the Noivern was a promotional card in Japan given with a Noibat promo to those who purchased a box of Collection X/Collection Y. The other Trainer Kit Pokémon will most likely be comprised of the remainder of the Xerneas Half Deck and Yveltal Half Deck, as not all of those cards will fit in the English XY expansion.
