Goodnight, Babies: More ‘BREAKpoint’ Cards Revealed!

The official BREAKpoint mini-site has revealed 25 cards from the set, as you can see below (some have been revealed before, but I’m including them below for completeness). You can check out the full set list for BREAKpoint in this news story.

Prereleases for the set start this weekend, and booster packs will officially hit store shelves on February 3rd.

That Hypno just gets creepier and creepier.

    This entire set seems so good. I just home I can build a deck around Espeon and maybe a deck with Raticate

    goodnight babies... lol talk about creepy! what about ho-oh bats i think it might be good, due to the ability to heal, and that it can attack the bench, so if the active is already knocked out use bats on the bench, then use ho oh to attack it further, but if not, than use bats on the active to dish out extra damage. i think it might have some potential with arceus promo as a seccondary attacker with 140 damage with a band, and 160/170 with bats.
    EDIT: Depending what I pull at the pre release/what I can trade for I might make a darkrai hypno all night party deck... Love that ability name tho lol

    "Goodnight, Babies"-?
    Sorry if I don't find that as bada-- as the rest of you, but it sounds like a pretty lame translation to me.
    Couldn't it be "Torment Sleep" or something along those lines-?

    Am I the only one who thinks that the darkrai artwork looks kinda "off"? I don't know why, but it just kinda looks weird imo

    I liked the translation 'Miracle Home Run' better than 'Walk-off Homer"...

    Can Greninja BREAK be placed on Greninja EX?

    Unfortunately it can not. it would be quite powerful I imagine :D A stage Pokemon always particularly states what it can evolve from. If a Pokémon evolves from an EX (which only Mega Evolution and Primal Pokemon can do currently) it says ''evolves from -name- EX''

    Just to be clear, the -EX in a Pokémon's name is just that: part of the card's name. As far as the game is concerned, Greninja-EX is as different from Greninja as Blastoise-EX is.

    "Leave both active Pokemon asleep"
    Something sounds incredibly non-official about the way that effect is worded.

    You practically negated your whole argument. I quote you, "They designed the card to get a reaction out of people. They're not dumb. Like ALL forms of media and entertainment, they know what sells, " thats full support of my argument though. " PCL knew exactly what they were doing when they put Skyla in this pose" You just summed up my whole argument. Yes they know what they are doing. Yes "sex " sells. But that doesnt mean they need to put it on a darn card game card. Why does Skyla get 2 full arts? Sycamore hasnt even received one.

    The best way to describe what I'm thinking is by writing out how I think it should have been worded; Once during your turn (before you attack), you may use this effect. Both Active Pokemon are now Asleep.

    I know it's a very simple effect, it's written intuitively enough and you can't really abuse something like that. I just think the way they translated it sounds surprisingly conversational (and not very formal or official) for a TCG like Pokemon.

    Ah, just like Ariados' ability Poisonous Nest. I actually think this ability is formulated better. Its simplified, but I get where you are coming from.

    I really just want to put a 1 of of slowbro in to my archies blastoise so I can be that guy. You know slowbro doesn't do anything but make sure you win the game I guess if your facing a wailord deck it might come in handy.

    Judging by the way attacks and abilities are currently getting named, I fully expect the next set to contain an Electrode with the attack name "Sayonara B*tches", dealing 200 damage to itself and the opponents active pokemon

    PCL/TPCi does like to do that, particularly to catch up on Japanese promos. Roaring Skies had even more unevolved basics without an evolution in the set.

    Yes defiantly, the knockout still happens.If it was the other way it would say in the text itself "your opponent does not take any prizes" But since it does not than you can assume that one would still take the prizes.
