All four of these cards were expected to show up in Brilliant Stars as they were a part of Pokémon OCG Star Brith and Start Deck 100 sets, but these pre-release promo cards have alternate art that wasn’t released in Japan.

As usual, the cards are branded with the logo for their set, which in this case is Brilliant Stars. Not only will this set bring a variety of new cards to Pokémon TCG, but it will be the first in the west to introduce V-Star cards.

So far we’ve seen four V-Star cards released via Pokémon OCG Star Birth and these cards, Charizard, Arceus, Shaymin, and Whimiscott will be available in Brilliant Stars.

Fans can get their hands on these cards when the set launches in stores on Feb. 25.
