I hate the marketing talk for this set when they stay stuff like "More than 100 amazing Pokémon from the Unova region" when there is only 101 cards in the set. Definitely padding the marketing pitch.

Wait, aren't the normal art musketeers in Emerging Powers?
They put the full art variants in a different set, I don't think that's how that's supposed to go.
