Why is there no xy block?

I’m confused on why we just go from black and white block straight to sm series skipping the xy block unless there isn’t a xy block

This too would be a fun block to have, especially since it could allow the unbanning of Lysandre’s Trump Card!

i feel like trump card could still be banned only because it got banned essentially on release due to how insanely powerful it was even for the standard format, let alone expanded.

I agree with sammym2001 it would probably be to powerful especially due to the limited amount of cards compared to expanded or even standard
