So really... what is this Wizards made set? Here are the facts:
Set Order: Unknown in Japan and the US.
We're not sure when it'll appear.
Set Size: Unknown in Japan and the US.
Release Date: Mid-Late 2003?
Right now the
Wizards' set isn't exactly HIGHEST priority, but will be soon enough. We're hoping though it makes its appearence after Skyridge.
YES! A Wizards made set IS on
the horizon! There is no more waiting, for TPC has actually expressed
interest in a Wizards made set! This statement is as true as you could
get right now, considering that I was the one who posed to question
to the Wizards heads to begin with. :-P

the speaker with question #329 from nickfifteen:
anything you can say about a possible Wizards-first/only Pokémon
wotc_keith says, "This is
something that we have been thinking about for quite some time. We are
currently working with TPC to work out the feasibility and details of
this. However, it's definitely something that we would like to see. In
fact, it's also something that the POkemon Company would like to see as
Art for the set? We're hoping for American artists, but since TPC is still in control, chances are that it'll be Japanese artwork for the set. Hmmm....
What do we think will be in it? A lot. What is rumored to be in
it...? We're betting that Wizards will make this a heck of a lot more
player friendly than previous sets. Perhaps say an equal amount of
Pokémon of a particular type, or having it draft friendly, or
whatever. Kinda like Legendary Collection, but using new cards they made.
Also rumored is that it may be a mix of Vending, *Web, reprints
as well as Wizards-created cards. .... Kinda like Crosstrainer! ... But this is a really wacky rumor.
Symbol: The symbol? Unknown.
