Sun & Moon Theme Decks: Starter Final Evolutions Pokemon GX!

Sun and Moon

Sun & Moon Theme Decks

The Theme Deck art and some details have been revealed for the first Sun & Moon Theme Decks!

Remember that Sun & Moon will come with three Theme Decks instead of two: Forest Shadow, Roaring Heat, and Bright Tide.

Update: Apparently, these decks are part of the Sun & Moon: Alola Starter Set and will be in addition to the three Sun & Moon Theme Decks!

Welcome to the tropical Alola region!

Choose your first partner – Rowlet, Litten, or Popplio – and begin your journey with three 60-card theme decks, each ready to play right out of the box.

Take aim with the Forest Shadow theme deck, add fuel to the fire with the Roaring Heat theme deck, or overwhelm your foe with the Bright Tide theme deck!

Information about these Theme Decks was initially revealed about two weeks ago.

This image was leaked less than 24 hours before the starter final evolutions were officially revealed in English.

However, its worth noting that were not entirely sure if this image is showing the three Theme Decks or if theyll instead be special starter decks, or even if theyll be exclusive to Japan.

Sun & Moon Starter Final Evolutions

Again, the starter evolutions have been officially revealed with English names:

Decidueye (Grass/Ghost), Incineroar (Fire/Dark), and Primarina (Water/Fairy).

(Note how the Grass Theme Decks name is Forest Shadowimplying Grass and Ghost (Psychic in TCG), which should have been a clue that Rowletts final evolution Decidueye was not going to be Grass/Flying but Grass/Ghost in the video game. Guess we all missed that one!)

Pokemon GX in Theme Decks?!

For the Trading Card Game, this Theme Deck image reveal is very interesting. For one, the Theme Decks are including Pokemon GX cards! (Maybe: if these really are the 3 new Theme Decks.)

Pokemon GX seems to replace Pokemon-EX as the overpowered Pokemon cards. Keep in mind that these Pokemon GX cards are Stage 2, so they still have to be evolved from their non-GX lines. Does this mean the new Theme Decks will be much more powerful than other Theme Decks?

The End of Dual Types?

Also, all of the starter final evolutions are dual-types in the video games (and the Theme Deck names seem to reference both types), but these Pokemon GX cards are clearly not dual-types.

Even though the recent Steam Siege expansion reintroduced dual-types, is the Pokemon TCG already done with em? What of the future of Xerneas Rainbow Road?!

What do you Think?

What do you think of the 3 new Theme Decks including Pokemon GX?

Do you like Decidueye, Inciniroar, and Primarina? Did Decidueyes Grass/Ghost typing surprise you?
