The latest set form the Pokémon TCG, Roaring Skies, is set to hit shelves on May 6th. The set boasts over 100 new cards including 11 new EX cards, 4 of which are Mega Evolutions. Making its debut in card form … Mega Rayquaza-EX! Other EX cards include: Mega Latios-EX, Hydreigon-EX, and Thundurus-EX. There’s also new boosts like Mega Turbo and Double Dragon Energy.

I’m a bit more excited about this set than the previous few, even though they’ve all been solid. I know my kids are going to go nuts for Mega Rayquaza-EX, and my daughter for Thundurus-EX (it’s on of her favorite Pokémon.)
