Buy List: Cosmic Eclipse

Zach shares his buy list for Cosmic Eclipse

10/10/2019 by Zach Lesage

While we are uncertain on how Cosmic Eclipse will look like when it hits North America in a few weeks, I have combed through the set to find the best cards. What’s up everyone, I’m Zach Lesage, and I hope this article will make your life slightly easier. I have picked out the cards that I think are the best aka “Staples” and other cards that I think could see play aka “Fringe Cards”. There are a couple things that I would like to address before I showcase my personal buy list:

  • These cards are based on the translations from
  • The card text might get updated when the set is released outside of Japan
  • There is a possibility that some of these cards might not be released outside of Japan
  • There is a possibility that some other unreleased cards make it into the set
  • This list is my opinion only; use your own discretion if necessary

That being said, I hope this helps you out! Thanks for subscribing to 60Cards!

See Ya in Knoxville

Well that’s a wrap for today. I will be writing more articles this week, heading into Knoxville, to help all of you succeed. We have big plans here at 60Cards and I hope you can absorb as much information from some upcoming exciting news. As for me, I finished registering and booking flights for every major event in North America (and Latin American Internationals) all the way up until San Diego! I’m excited to play Pokémon, prove to myself that I am one of the best players in the game, and see all of my friends who play this game. After going 3-1-1 at Worlds Day Two to 3-3-1, it took me a couple of days to come down from the level of disappointment that I felt. While I can’t be certain that I will have a fulfilling finish at Worlds this year, or any tournament for that season, I will use my hope as a fuel to push myself as far ahead as I can. I have already earned 335CP and I don’t plan on stopping soon. Anyways, as I continue on my Pokemon adventure, feel free to follow me on all of my social media.
