Information on the first international set of the BW era has been revealed. The set will be released on April 25, 2011, with the theme decks releasing April 6. Theme decks will consist of Green Tornado, featuring Serperior, Red Frenzy featuring Emboar, and Blue Assault featuring Samurott and Galvantula. Over 70 Pokémon from the Unova region will be featured in this set, with over 110 cards in all.

Additional cards revealed are Reshiram and Zekrom full-art cards, the presumed successor of LEGEND cards, Reshiram and Zekrom in regular card format, and an Axew card. Booster packs will, unlike the Japanese expansion, maintain a ten card pack amount, though the price has dropped to $3.79 USD.

In addition to these, two promotional items were also announced. A Pokémon Collector's Album Box will be released April 25 for $9.99, and will include a sixty-slot card album, two Black & White booster packs, and the aforementioned Axew card. Reshiram and Zekrom tins were also announced, which will include 4 Black & White booster packs and a Reshiram or Zekrom card, depending on the purchased tin. These will be released May 2 for $15.99 USD each.

Update:  A Victini Box has also been announced. This box, releasing with the set at $19.99 USD, will include a Victini figure, five Black & White booster packs, and an undetermined foil card. The sell sheet for this also revealed booster pack images, of Zekrom, Zoroark, Reshiram, and Zebstrika.
