It is an enormous challenge to master the Pokemon TCG. The series of sun and moons are currently working through the huit block. With Guardians Rising and Ultra Prism, Crimson Invasion and Crimson Invasion, Shining Legends and Fireful Dead, it is now time to look at Dragon Majesty, the next set. It was released Sept. 7, 2018, less than a month following the Sun & Moon Scorpion era. This set is unique and comes after the Legends series. This set does not include “Sun & Moon”, and it was released in special branded products, instead of booster boxes. Today we conclude our review of Majesty.
Princess of Dragons. Co-op.
TWO ITEMS FROM THE MOON ERA WERE INCLUDED ON THE LIST, FIRST OF “SPECIAL SETS”, OF THE YEAR-END ERA.
Special sets and special sts are usually focused on a particular theme. It is obvious that Drazzles includes fire-types as well as the obvious. Silver & Moon and other special games have been increasing in popularity this year due to their focus on Shiny Pokemon. However, I believe Dragons are an important theme for a set. This set is a wintry idea due to the inclusion of fire-types as well as the possibility to return to the top table with the biggest hits.
The set features a lot of beautiful artwork. Notably, cards that would have made incredible pulls weren’t used in this set. Instead, they were featured in the products as SM Black Star Promos. The set is so well-received that I find the nonArt and rare parts of it more impressive than the most highly-coveted hits. These cards are standard cards such as the Charmander and Reshiram GX lines, but also a collection that has interesting Pokemon beautifully rendered.
Both full art trainers can be used for the full arts and secret rares. We have the Kanto Classic Blaine as well as the tragic Zinnia. If I didn’t have some, I would have had a few more Full Art trainers. This is especially true considering their tendency to be overloaded by a lot Main series sets. Reshiram was still out, so the full arts and Rainbow Rare selection are okay. One-hands of exceptional cards were used instead as promos, unlike me. The Ultra Necrozma GX Gold Secret Rare is a card I enjoy, and I understand how rare it was. The surface would not be seen again until Herdden Fates, and that set saw a significant change in the card type.
POKEMON TCG DRAGON MAJESTYFINAL RATE.
Overall, Ragon Majesty scores 7.5/10. It is strong with strong focus and beautiful artwork. Although the full-art and secret rare sections could have used more bangers than they do, Ultra Necrozma GX Gold Secret rarely is a big winner.
