Should be all. I'd link to the cards, but I'm not sure how/when they're going to be moved, if at all, not to mention complaints that the card article doesn't mention that it is in the set.
Information on the first international set of the BW era has been revealed. The set will be released on April 25, 2011, with the theme decks releasing April 6. Theme decks will consist of Green Tornado, featuring {{p|Serperior}}, Red Frenzy featuring {{p|Emboar}}, and Blue Assault featuring {{p|Daikenki}} (Japanese name) and {{p|Gavantula}}. Over 70 Pokémon from the Unova region will be featured in this set, with over 110 cards in all.
Additional cards revealed are {{p|Reshiram}} and {{p|Zekrom}} full-art cards, the presumed successor of LEGEND cards, Reshiram and Zekrom in regular card format, and an {{p|Axew}} card. Booster packs will, unlike the Japanese expansion, maintain a ten card pack amount, though the price has dropped to $3.79 USD.
In addition to these, two promotional items were also announced. A Pokémon Collector's Album Box will be released April 25 for $9.99, and will include a sixty-slot card album, two {{TCG|Black & White}} booster packs, and the aforementioned Axew card. Reshiram and Zekrom tins were also announced, which will include 4 Black & White booster packs and a Reshiram or Zekrom card, depending on the purchased tin. These will be released May 2 for $15.99 USD each.
