News: BW9 Announced!  
Apologies updates have been sparse, life itself has been very hectic and I've had a lot of health issues, but the big updates'll keep on coming the better I get.

Hot off the heels of the release of BW8 which is happening at the end of the week, already distributors have details and preliminary images of the next set which will be hitting us in March of 2013.

BW9 is called Megalo Cannon and features Genesect as the feature Pokemon which will undoubtedly see an EX. The set is due out on the 15th of March 2013, and will have 76 cards + secret/ultra rare cards. Given Genesect was teased as the potential leading movie Pokemon for the 2013 run, and now is being featured in the anime, it seems our next July set will be vastly different from peoples initial predictions.

You can check out the booster artwork below, where Genesect is shown using it's Shock Plate. Will we see multiple EX cards of this legendary like we did the Arceus Lv.X cards? Only time will tell.

Additionally, a new Combo Deck will be released on the same day. Simply named Combo Deck 60 Blastoise + KyuremEX the deck will retail for 1,680円 and presumably features 60 cards (of which only around 15-25 of those will probably be unique.) You can check out the preliminary placeholder flyer below, but details are very scarce for this one right now.

Many thanks to denkimouse for the heads up and the new info! Rasen Force and Raiden Knuckle spoilers will probably be up in the next few days so keep your eyes peeled.
