Pokémon TCG: Shiny Star V Zacian and Zamazenta Revealed

Two more cards for the upcoming Japanese Pokémon TCG set Sword and Shield Shiny Star V have been revealed. Like most cards in the set outside of the new Shiny cards, these are reprints from previously released cards in our English set. Zacian (136/190) and Zamazenta (138/190) are the same cards from Rebel Clash. Translation Credit to @ToineLay

Because so many cards have already been released in English, this set appears to have been planned for awhile and then added to our sets. It's very rare for the English set to get a card first, so the big question is will Shiny Star V be part of our 25th Anniversary set or our next Fall set like Hidden Fates and Champion's Path? We are leaning toward the latter as the set will be pretty sparse without all the reprints, while having it toward the end of the year allows additional Japanese sets to come out to fill out the Fall set. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
