The Actual News:
While I’m still sorting out the actual contents of the sets for my Space World Fake Card series, I did at least work out the name and themes for the sets. In particular, I’m going to emulate the style of how the TCG currently runs its blocks, by giving the set a prefix (like ADV/EX, BW, XY, etc). In this case, it’ll be “SW”, for “Space World”. But what is the “Space World?”
Well, find out here!:
- SW Alpha97 So in the first set, Alpha97, it turns out that a mysterious portal has opened up in our Pokémon World. The portal leads to the “Space World”, which is a strange, alternate dimension to our Pokémon world… and it’s already doing some strange things to our Pokémon… like, giving them new forms, or giving them Baby Pokémon to those who never had them before… what’s going on here?
- SW Beta98 The next set, Beta98, will see the portal to the “Space World” open even wider, releasing completely new and previously unknown Pokémon into the world. Like two completely new starters? Or a shark/anchor-like Pokémon? If the portal to the “Space World” doesn’t close soon, who knows what other strange beings will be let loose to cause untold chaos?
- SW Omega99 Finally in the last set, Omega99, it’s discovered that the portal to the “Space World” can only be closed from the inside, and so only the most brave soulsboth People and Pokémonare tasked with the duty to enter the “Space World” in order to break the connection to our world once and for all. But who knows what kinds of strange and mysterious Pokémon we’ll see in the “Space World”? Pokémon from a completely different universe? Pokémon with a never-before-seen type?? Rainbow Energy might be the only way to ensure they’ll be able to battle on your side… but that’s if you can make it out of the “Space World” at all!
Like the idea so far? Now some things may be tweaked before I finally start producing fakes for the sets, but this is closer to the end product than not.
Finally, I did a quick sketch of what I’d like the set logos to be. Take a look below!
It’s a simple design for now, but I hope to make it look authentic to current Pokémon TCG set logos. I also hope I can pull off a convincing “corruption” effect for the logos as well…
