Kiawe from SM3!

Joining Mallow and Sophocles is now Kiawe, who will be a Supporter card in SM3! Thanks goes to Hannes S. for the translation!

With this card in the set, plus Ho-Oh-GX and Charizard-GX, will we be getting a SR Fire Energy? I’ll bet a million dollars we are!

Kiawe – Trainer

Search your deck for 4 [R] Energy and attach them to 1 of your Pokemon. Then, shuffle your deck. Your turn ends.

You may play only 1 Supporter card during your turn (before your attack).

    Good thing i aqquired a Rainbow Art Turtonator and a regular one.
    I wonder that they rise in value soon...

    This card is borderline redicioulos


    Haven't seen that your turn ends after using it.
    That turns this card from "stupidly broken" into VERY intresting for both the person using it and the person getting it used against.

    Just noticed that it's also not limited to attaching to Fire Pokemon. What else might this be funny with?

    • Kiawe - I give it 4-5 Geodudes. If you use T1 Kiawe, this card is flippin OP. This will help Most Fire Decks....A LOT!!! This will be 1 in every Fire decks. Unfortunately, your turn ends after it. So, use bunch of Items first (BEWEAR on Garb!) before getting this out on T1. In Speaking of T1, If you go first, Ultra Ball for a Cute Lele and Lele for this Kiawe, OH MY GOODNESS!!, This is awesome. If not, it's fine. Turt and Volc will love this for sure. Ho-oh GX loves it too, so that on T2, It can use it's GX attack. And also, Fire Pokémon with expensive ACs. Someone asking, this card is not attach to Fire Pokémon alone. It can be used to attach something like, pokebeach's boi, Bewear GX.

    Volcanion already plays one Lele

    Could you attach Double Dragon Energy?? If so Dark Dragons= OP

  13. Good thinking but unfortunately not. Double Dragon Energy only counts as every type of Energy when attached to a Pokemon.

    Also, Volcanion is one of the only decks that doesn't have instant synergy with Tapu Lele-GX (you don't run DCE and you're tight on bench space aready - multiple Volcanion-EX, Turtonator-GX, Hoopa-EX, Shaymin-EX) - so, obviously it depends on your build, but I don't think it automatically "already plays 1 Lele" in Standard at the moment.

    This with black Smith and. Energy recycler .. hello Charazard
  15. Ramo0927 Stay away. I am literal cancer.


    This card is broken, but c'mon I really didn't want fire support. Volcanion is already dominating the format.

    I guess i'll give this deck a try, since now its pretty much going to be better than Turbo Dark :p

    This helps Ho-oh a lot even if your turn ends, also, WPM, we already saw Lana, it's probably in this set

    Aww, yiss. Ho-oh might actually be good!

    I imagine you would have to stick some kind of hinderance Pokemon like Wobbuffet in the active slot so you can stay safe when your turn ends.

    Also, this makes energy baton (or whatever it was) even more useful now.

    Seems like sm4 should give grass some type of energy acceleration sense the other starter types have one now. This card is pretty solid overall blacksmith is still better in expanded thanks to its energy recovery and ability to allow for big numbers on turn 2 but this affect will likely be used in a deck style similar to wob/groudon or decks that will do everything in there power to get this on the first turn so the turn ending won't be terrible

    Everyone's worried about the general speed of the game after Shaymin EX rotates but with stuff like this, aqua patch, Tapu Lele GX, Max Elixir, etc. I'm looking forward to how the pace changes
