Giratina 3-Pack Blister in December!

What better way to celebrate Christmas than with devilish Giratina? A special Giratina 3-pack blister will be released sometime this December! It’ll include Japan’s recently-released Giratina promo, three booster packs, a coin, and a PTCGO code card.

Presumably TPCi is releasing Giratina quicker than usual because it was designed to make a huge impact on the metagame.

Giratina PromoGiratina – Psychic – HP130
Basic Pokemon

Ability: Devouring Light
As long as this Pokemon is in play, each player’s Pokemon BREAK can’t use any Abilities (including  Abilities from their previous Evolutions).

[P][P][C][C] Shadow Claw: 110 damage. Discard 1 card from your opponent’s hand without looking.

Weakness: Darkness (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 2

    Hoping this will be legal for Dallas Regionals. It probably won't, but I'm still crossing my fingers.

    One would have to assume that it would be either Evolutions or S&M

    going by previous 3 pack blisters and the timing of Dec should be all evolutions or 1 pack evolutions, 1 steam or fate and 1 of the break set.

    Time to pack Silent Lab come December.

    To think we have a nice looking 5ban graphics card, too.

    It is only stopping the BREAK card from using their Ability, they can still attack. So, it's going to be great against Greninja and Yanmega BREAK decks since they depend on abilities to boost their attacks. But it won't affect the Zoroark and Ninetales BREAK since they rely strictly on their attacks.

    But it's going to be great in Mewtwo decks. Means I might be able to stop running Garbodor now...

    Because new cards usually take about 2 weeks to kick into Standard. Since the Regionals are on December 31st, they would have to be release in the first few weeks to be legal. Besides, they wouldn't just drop a new card that shuts down one of the top (Or used to be) decks.

    Love the new promo and the blister pack, I wish the new 3-pack blister will include newer coins, other from Deoxys, Victini, Genesect, Pilachu, and the Kalos Starters.

    MY EVALUATIONS!
    • Giratina - the ability is nice and very impactuous (is that the correct term?). Bye Greninja BREAK, Zoroark BREAK (If someone plays this deck.),Yanmega BREAK (No more saving Energy!) and Carbink BREAK (Safeguard thingy.). The attack is nice, too. Just spam Elixirs and Voala! Ready to go!
