Starting with the standard Full Arts, the eight Eeveelutions are present and accounted for and will look stunning when displayed together. Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Espeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon offer colorful designs in their card art, which also harnesses a sense of movement. 

The standard Full Art V and VMAX cards are a pleasure to pull in any packs, but the Eeveelutions have an extra majestic quality to them. 

All eight of the Eeveelutions have received VMAX variants, and Umbreon will likely be the most sought after Pokemon of the set.

The real spectacle of the Eevee Heroes set are the Secret Rares, and PokeBeach recently revealed images of them all. In total, there are 16 Full Art cards dedicated to the chain, and that doesn’t include the VMAX Secret Rares or Alternate Arts. 

Umbreon, Leafeon, Sylveon, and Glaceon will have both Rainbow Rares and Alternate Art cards, which are expected to be Secret Rares in the English set too. 

The aforementioned Alternate Art cards will star all eight Pokemon and are beautifully illustrated to resemble mini paintings, adding to the set’s value and overall impressive design. 

The eight Secret Rares are, of course, the set’s rarest cards, and their quality certainly doesn’t disappoint. Inteleon will also be the set’s Gold card.

In addition to the 69-card set , the Secret Rares, and the Alternate Arts, there are also Full Art Trainers including Aroma Lady and Gordie. 

Additionally, Pikachu, Raichu, and Entei make an appearance in the set, and who can forget the standard Eevee card that is a must-have to honor the Pokemon that started it all.
