Wish Baton from SM2+!

The official Japanese Pokemon Twitter revealed Wish Baton from SM2+ today! Both this set and Best of XY will be released later this week on Friday, April 21st. Hopefully we’ll start getting card leaks over the next couple days. Thanks to Bangiras for the translation!

Wish Baton – Trainer
Item

Pokemon Tool: Attach a Pokemon Tool to 1 of your Pokemon that doesn’t already have a Pokemon Tool attached to it.

If the Pokemon this card is attached to is your Active Pokemon and is Knocked Out by damage from an opponent’s attack, choose up to 3 Basic Energy attached to that Pokemon and move them to one of your Benched Pokemon.

You may play as many Item cards as you like during your turn (before your attack).

    Did we just break Yveltal? Moving the Dark type quicker than you can bench a Shaymin.

    EXP-Share on steroids?

    It's gonna be hard to use as all the energy moves to 1 mon and because Field Blower will be making it hard to actually keep it on your mon but very interessting card nontherless.

    This card seems to have huge potential... But damage from attack means that decidueye GX ability knockout may be an issue... Perhaps a hot tech for some decks?

    And they continue to buff Dark types. Remeber, Darkrai GX will also be in this set.
    For Turbo Dark, once energy is on the field, it would be very difficult to remove them.

    I'm not sure. . field blower seems to be a one per deck thing so if you have 2-3 of these as your tool, just reattach

    Field blower will be a solid enough counter to this without it being a big deal. The potential of it being blown off without doing anything is to likely. However if it does go off its pretty solid in decks with heavy basic energy amounts

    Oh God, this is powerful. The first thing that came to my mind war Darkrai EX, no more energies to the discard pile, tons of damage.
    The second thing is M Venusaur EX from Evolutions. You'll always have a Pokemon ready to attack!

    This is also really good for Volcanion, because it tends to have difficulty setying up and maintaining its Energy. Also think about Primal Groudon with this card...

    And these will possibly in our English SM3 set which will be tournament-legal for Worlds.
    • Wish Baton - No doubt for a "5-Geodude" card for some reasons:

    1. Darkrai EX and GX will love this.
    2. Exp. Share will be 100% Obselete.
    3. Prone to Field Blower but remember, that card discards 2 Tools not like the Megaphone, and players play 1 copy of that card, so if u have an extra Wish Stick, go ahead attach it.
    4. Volcanion and Lurantis will also love this.
    5. Weavile will possibly Shine soon.

    Primal Groudon anyone? I mean Lucky Helmet is great, but keeping 2 or 3 of those energies on a new Primal could be amazing.
