Psycho Drive/Hail Blizzard

New information regarding the upcoming September set for Japan has been revealed. In addition to Mewtwo and Kyurem, other Pokémon to be in the set include Lucario, Bisharp, Pikachu, Meowth, Cinccino, and Scrafty. Also, a new card mechanic will debut in the set. EX cards (not to be confused with ex cards of the Generation III era) will be included as Secret Rares alongside Full Art cards. Cilan will also be featured on a Supporter card, and Pokémon from each of the five Generations will appear. Each set will feature 48 cards with 4 secret rares each.

Reshiram EX and Zekrom EX decks

Expanding on the new mechanic introduced in BW3, Reshiram and Zekrom will both be featured as EX cards in separate decks released Oct. 21. Not much is known about the decks, except each will contain 60 cards, and they will be similar to the Battle Strength Decks that featured Cobalion, Virizion, and Terrakion.

BW-P Promotional cards

More than a dozen new promotional cards have been announced for the upcoming months. Bandai will be releasing a Pokémon Kids special promotional run with a set of toys. The featured Pokémon receiving cards are Whimsicott, Gothorita, Petilil, Bisharp, Cinccino, Excadrill, Lilligant, Haxorus, Liepard, Vullaby, and Ducklett. Also shown were unblocked images of the upcoming BW-P Promos Reuniclus and Gothitelle being released in the Red Collection booster campaign alongside Zebstrika and Beartic.

Furthermore, in the BW3 booster/box campaigns, Luxio, Riolu, and Meowth will each be receiving promotional cards.
