Third Japanese BW expansion announced: Hail Blizzard and Psycho Drive coming September 16

The third Japanese BW TCG expansion has been announced. The main set-split into two subsets Hail Blizzard/Psycho Drive-will be released September 16, 2011, and will feature Kyurem and Mewtwo respectively. This will be the first release of the Black & White TCG era to release Pokémon from any of the first four generations.

Re: Third Japanese BW expansion announced: Hail Blizzard and Psycho Drive coming Sept

So, the BW sets move onto the old Pokémon now, hmm...
Two months after Red Collection is pretty surprising too; and why the focus on Kyurem, when according to previous press reports, there should be a Kyurem card in Red Collection?
 
Re: Third Japanese BW expansion announced: Hail Blizzard and Psycho Drive coming Sept

Why is Kyurem the main pokémon of a theme deck in the same expansion as a theme deck with Mewtwo as the main pokémon of a theme deck? I think Landorus should be used instead of Mewtwo. Has Landorus been the main pokémon of any other theme deck?

This isn't a theme deck, this is the third expansion. It just happens to feature both Mewtwo and Kyurem. And who knows why they picked kyurem. Cards are allowed to be in two consecutive sets: Pikachu has done it a lot, and all the pan and simi monkeys, darmanitan, scolipede, and krookodile are doing it in ENBW1 and 2.

Landorus has one card that is in Red collection, and a reprint promo of that card.

Giratina only had one card released before the first Platinum set. Likewise, Rayquaza only had one card released prior to being heavily showcased in the Deoxys set which was released two months before Emerald. In Japan, that was the Emerald set, but in the U.S. they had to release another set due to the longer gap between the movie and the game. Also worthy of mention is the fact that Suicune made its TCG debut after Crystal was released (in a set that revolved around the Burned Tower).

This is an unprecedented move. I wouldn't expect Kyurem to be the star of another set.

Really nit picky, I know, but the first BW set had Pikachu in it.

What is a typical time span between Japanese releases? I was still waiting on Red Collection to be released and we already are getting information about the next set!
