Arcanine BREAK in September’s ‘CoroCoro Ichiban!’

An Arcanine BREAK promo (267/XY-P) will be included in September’s issue of CoroCoro Ichiban! Thanks goes to Vincent for the translation! Arcanine’s pose is very similar to Base Set Arcanine, which may be because Japan’s 20th anniversary set will be celebrating Base Set cards.

Arcanine BREAK CoroCoro IchibanArcanine BREAK – Fire – HP160

Arcanine BREAK retains the attacks, Abilities, Weakness, Resistance, and Retreat Cost of its previous Evolution.

    Seems pretty good. I'm happy TCPI is leaning more towards evolution decks again.

    Love the art.
    But is it just me or are there a lot of fire BREAK cards?

    Welp.
    Atleast it looks cool.

    Noooo, I wanted a beautiful textured full art Arcanine. Now I fear we won't get one in the style of modern full arts, I'm so disappointed! I'm not fond of the look of break cards. :(

    Arcanine is my favorite pokemon and I am striving to collect every English card of it ever released, so I will be buying multiples of this Arcanine break and hopefully using it in a deck regardless of my disappointment.

    The pose doesn't at all look similar to the base set Arcanine. It looks more like Blaine's Arcanine without the tongue hanging out. Compare:

    At least it's a decent and cool looking card. It's like MegaMan, but not as good. I guess they both have their pros and cons, however.
    This could be paired with Volcanion-EX and Flareon-EX for a very nice and efficient combination. You could be doing 80+ damage each turn, depending on how many Fire Energies you are discarding while powering up benched Arcanines and Flareon-EX's.

    Cool, my favorite Pokemon got a BREAK. Not an EX but I'm ok with that. Also, card is not that bad. But still underwhelming.
    Now we need a nice Arcanine to go with it. Maybe with a playable ability.

    Turbo Flame seems like an attempt to get around reprinting Blacksmith, but honestly, a setup attack isn't that great on something that needs way too much setup itself. After all, we're talking about a pseudo-Stage 2 that doesn't even get anything like Rare Candy or Maxie/Archie; at best, we have Wally turning three turns of setup into two turns of setup.

    Oh man this is kinda cool! I wouldnt be surprised if they printed an Arcanine with Overrun to go with it. Arcanine's had a few cards with Overrun and it'd be kind of a neat reference to the basic Manectric EX as well

    Well this is exciting :D

    It's a solid attack, but its viability will depend on the Arcanine we get in Evolutions. And of the BREAK cards, this is among the best art - you can easily tell it's an Arcanine and not just a golden blob.

    I also don't think this preculdes us from getting an Arcanine-EX with a FA sometime in the SuMo era. Arcanine has appeared in trailers, and it wouldn't surprise me if it's available with or without a Mega Evolution in the next generation. Crossing my fingers!

    Arcanine is my favorite pokemon, and MegaMan was one of my favorite cards, so I nearly screamed in excitement about this. Also, with the semi-playable Arcanine from NXD working with this, I might ACTUALLY play this at a Regionals with Volcanion-EX. I also like how many splashable attackers could work with this. I am most DEFINITELY a happy camper.

    I can't help but think Turbo Flame should have been an ability. This is a slower Carbink without all the support. Maybe this is them trying to balance the game now. Still looks like a fun card and maybe we'll see a way to get breaks into play faster.

    I think it's a pretty good card, particularly for a promo BREAK.

    I certainly hope TPCI would place more emphasis on evolution mechanism, personally I am not very fond of the -EX mechanism since its inception in Next Destiny
