In the wake of the CoroCoro official street release, the official Pokemon-Card website has updated in Japan with the cards from XY5 revealed in addition to a handful more, as well as the official reveal of the Super Legend Set (with nothing truly new asides from showcasing the artwork for the coin, sleeves, deck case, and play mat
) and the M DiancieEX Blister.
It's a big update, that's for sure! XY5's official splash image tells us that this is an "Event Release! The Power of Omega and Alpha!"
in relation to the set being the game-based tie-in for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Without further ado lets dive into the plethora of information revealed!
To start things off, the XY5 official announcement showcases not just the cards that were in CoroCoro, but a handful more even if only small. GroudonEX (GV:039/070) and KyogreEX (TS:031/070) are the main show-stoppers right now, and it is confirmed that their Mega evolution cards, something so far only revealed in the English TCG side of things, will be coming into play with the sets. Alongside those two, Sceptile, Blaziken, and Swampert were all revealed with their pre-evolutions. The Sceptile and Blaziken lines will be in Gaia Volcano, while the Swampert line will be exclusive to Tidal Storm.
The type split that was discussed in CoroCoro was also showcased on the official reveal, and like the focal Pokemon of the sets: Gaia Volcano is based around 'Land' dwelling Pokemon with Fire, Fighting, and Steel types set to appear, and Tidal Storm is based around 'Sea' dwelling Pokemon with Water, Dark, and Fairy types set to appear. Honedge and Meditite are in Gaia Volcano, while Crawdaunt and Maril are in Tidal Storm. At present the numbers for the cards are illegible.

The M DiancieEX Blister promo cards can be seen below. As a reminder the blister comes with three booster packs and will only cost 500円 + tax, making these very affordable promos. As we knew prior when the product was announced, DiancieEX and M DiancieEX are both promo cards, and it looks like DiancieEX is coming in at 092/XY-P, and M DiancieEX coming in at 093/XY-P.
Still no official word on the shiny MetagrossEX and M MetagrossEX set, but hopefully in the coming weeks they too will surface! I'll keep my eyes peeled. Resource(s):Pokemon-Card.com
