News: ChesnaughtEX shakes up promos + Xerneas & Yveltal decks showcased!  
With the World Hobby Fair coming up this weekend in Japan, the official card site lumped everyone with a nice big early update! In addition to showing us a new chunk of promo cards, they also finally gave us some insight into the up and coming Xerneas and Yveltal decks that are due out on the 31st of January normally, but are also up for sale specially to WHF attendees this weekend nice and early.

For the Xerneas deck, we had Wigglytuff (002/014), Xerneas (007/014), Great Ball (009/014), Shauna (012/014), Tierno (013/014), and a new stadium called Fairy Garden (014/014) revealed. Meanwhile for the Yveltal deck, we had Malamar (006/017), Yveltal (007/017), also features Great Ball through Tierno, then another new stadium called Shadow Circle (014/014). Both decks also come with Dark and Fairy energies.

Additionally, the priorly announced Clefairy and Pancham holo cards that were announced when the decks were first put up on Amazon were shown, and aren't actually part of the deck load out -- instead they're promo cards, more than likely filling in the gap of 014/XY-P and 015/XY-P. You can check them all out below.

Along with those, a new four-card promo set has been unveiled. Starting from the 31st of January as well, card purchases from eligible stores of 1,000円 or higher will receive one of four promo cards. The first three are simple re-issues of prior promo cards and Collection X's Muscle Band featuring a stamp for the 2014 Charizard Mega Battle, but there is one new card: ChesnaughtEX, which comes in at 029/XY-P. Even factoring in the other promos at probably being 026-028/XY-P, it leaves a pretty nice gap right at the start of the 2014 promo run.

You can check them all out below: ChesnaughtEX is a pretty awesome looking card! Here's hoping we'll see DelphoxEX and GreninjaEX soon too.

As usual I'll try to keep everyone informed as news comes! I suspect the rest of the Xerneas and Yveltal deck'll be leaked this weekend which'll be exciting!

Callie, in YOUR opinion, should I get someone to get me some Chesnaught EXes or should I just look for them on Y!J?

I'd probably just hunt them up on Y!J imo. It'd cost about the same either way I feel!
