The first set in the latest Pokémon TCG block, Steam Siege, will be hitting store shelves on August 3rd. This set includes new EX cards such as Shiny Mega Gardevoir-EX, while new BREAK Pokémon include both Xerneas BREAK and Yveltal BREAK. Volcanion and Magearna make their debut in this set.
Steam Siege also includes Dual Type Pokémon, something that hasn’t been seen since the HeartGold & SoulSilver series.
CORRECTION: This article was originally titled “Pokémon TCG: XY Steam Siege Launches August 5th”, as the original press released included that date. Since then I’ve received a correction that the release date would be August 3rd. The article has been edited to reflect that correction.
