Fates Collide: English Cards & Prerelease Info

The release of the next Pokémon TCG expansion, XY – Fates Collide, is just around the corner! Not only has the official Pokémon site revealed more English card images, but also detailed upcoming prerelease events and tournaments happening in the weeks to come.

In addition to the English cards revealed a few weeks ago, we’ve got new English card scans of Audino EX, Delphox BREAK, and more!  You can see these new images just down below:

Also, Zygarde Core makes its debut in the TCG as a Trainer Card! Power Memory adds to Zygarde EX‘s already copious move list with a devastating attack called “All Cells Burn.”

The official Pokémon site also revealed the prerelease promo cards for XY – Fates Collide.  Unlike many previous prerelease promo cards that featured the same artwork as other cards in their associated set, these new promo cards have redrawn art by their original artists.

Compare the cards shown below with their regular counterparts over at Bulbapedia’s card list for Fates Collide.

Lastly, the official site announced that there will be numerous tournaments and events taking place starting today and running until May 1, 2016.  Here’s a direct quote straight from the official source:

Pokémon TCG: XY—Fates Collide Prerelease tournaments allow players to receive and play with cards from the upcoming expansion up to two weeks before the official release date!

Each participant receives a Prerelease box containing a 22-card Prerelease pack, four 10-card booster packs, and an exclusive foil promo card. Players will use these cards, plus Energy provided by the Tournament Organizer, to construct a 40-card deck. The Prerelease pack, which includes Pokémon and Trainer cards that work well together, provides a good starting point.

You can find see if any events or tournaments are running near you on their Event Locator page.

Pokémon TCG: XY – Fates Collide releases on May 4, 2016.


“Do the Wave” is among my list of favourite move names from the Pokémon TCG.  What’s funny is that the attack name (based on this particular phenomenon) is older than some would think.
