News: Clash at the Summit Reveal + Much More  
Pokemon-card.com, after a delay, have finally updated with news of Clash at the Summit along with some rather... expensive promos. It's a big update, so we're breaking it up into sections! Enjoy!
Edit: Aggron and Nidoking confirmed for set by Daisuki Club.

Clash at the Summit:

It's sad, we officially know more about Clash at the Summit than the official website! As usual, they've got a new wallpaper up featuring a high-res shot of the pack art. It's also interesting to note the slight logo change on the Legend text for this set, which now features a Celebi with her back to the L. The set has also now been confirmed to have 80 cards.

As for card reveals, they've only given us Palkia&Dialga Legend, along with Great Celebi and Great Machamp which is incredibly lacklustre given how long it's taken them to reveal the set in the first place.

However, in addition to that, Pokemon-Card-Online, a paid subscription service trainers have access to if they've purchased a Leafeon Vs Metagross deck and registered with their access code, have released a Great Machamp deck which also features cards from the up and coming Clash at the Summit. Cards confirmed in the set now also include Machop, Machoke, a normal Machamp, Ponyta, a holo Rapidash, Aipom, and a new trainer called Karate King. In addition to this, Daisuki Club revealed Aggron and Nidoking as part of the set in a club email.

So far the art from this set is stunning, but I wouldn't expect any less from a Legend-era set, especially when it's the last one.

Clash at the Summit Movie Campaign:

A new promotion is going to be run as the release campaign for this set. If you purchase two booster packs of Clash at the Summit, you'll be able to get one of two new jumbo cards: Zoroa and Celebi, and Zoroark and the Legendary Pokemon.

It's been a while since I've seen a card with 1k of damage being able to be dealt! Thank goodness it's a jumbo that can't be used for play.

Promotional Cards:

In other promotional card news asides from those exciting campaign Jumbos, the Master Rank PCG Action Point card has been revealed. It's number 055/L-P, called Master's Document, and is likely going to be a 9,800 or 12,000 point prize (as Master Rank hasn't been confirmed yet). In addition to this, another rare and expensive promo released was the Master's Key, which is being given away as a trophy in Japan to those who win their version of Nationals on the road to the World Championship. This is, essentially, the Wonder Platinum of the L-P run.

As usual, we'll keep you informed as the news rolls in!

While I adore Legend sets I'm a bit disappointed they chose to 3D render the Palkia/Dialga card (it looks plastic-y), especially after the amazing beast cards.

Yeah I'm kinda disappointed at that m'self. I know that Deoxys&Rayquaza Legend will likely suffer the same fate going by sample shot on the retailer flyer.

Well, if that Ponyta isn't the cutest thing I've seen...

I'm really adoring the Rapidash out of the pair *u*

Actually, there is no restriction on the age of the person getting the jumbo. As long as two booster packs are purchased, a jumbo card is given while stocks last. Given the freely-given nature of these two they'll be quite cheap to obtain.

If you actually read my news article it states just that, you buy two packs, you get a jumbo. You buy four, you get two, you buy six, you get three etc. ;)
