Full Art Wicke from SM3!

Wicke from SM3 has been revealed for the first time! She will presumably have a regular art version in the set as well. SM3 will be released in Japan next Friday, and we’ll of course have exclusive early information before then. Stay tuned!

Wicke – Trainer
Supporter

Each player shuffles their hand into their deck and draws a new hand of the same number of cards.

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

Wicke is basically a reprint of Sabrina’s Gaze from Gym Heroes, but as a Supporter.

She’s also… well endowed? I thought this was a kid’s game! :x

Update: My apologies, the original thumbnail for this news story was auto generated by WordPress. I was too tired last night to upload a manually cropped one, as I usually do, and thought it was funny how it selected that center portion of the image when I finally saw it. Had it been Guzma’s crotch, I would have left it too. :x

    Ridiculous artwork on this one, hope they tone it down (don't care about the kids, just saying.)

    Love the card though, will be using this a lot.

    I don't see this card getting a ton of play in the current format outside of decks that want to move second. That said, N will have significantly less utility in the post rotation meta due to the lack of seekers. Right now having an N in discard for lategame disruption is too good to not at least have one of them in your deck. Only time will tell whether people double down and go 4 N to increase the chance they have one available in the late game or start moving away from the card towards other shuffle supports like Hala/Wicke.

    And really, are people surprised that they 'know'? Did you forget this?

    Popular features of popular characters get featured prominently. Nuff said.

    A slightly more accurate translation would be

    Each player counts the number of cards in their own hand, then shuffles their hand into their deck and draws the same number of cards they counted.

    Wicke is a member of the Aether Foundation who doesn't agree with Lusimine's pursuit of getting or bringing the Ultra Beasts out of their world. She also helped Gladion and Lillie escape the foundation with their Pokemon. Post game she also supplies you with the Beast Balls to capture the stray Ultra Beasts and provides more information about them as you capture them.

    It's basically the same as Sabrina's Gaze, which is why the English print of that got priority.

    Anyway, I'm not sure if this will replace N when he rotates out next year.

    Nice thumbnail. :U

    In all honesty though, I really like this card's art, and I think it'll be played at least one-off in decks.

    well that is disappointing, but expected, given it would just be a "silver full art".

    for the rainbow pokemon, they could have done a special "rainbow rare" imo

    edit: that hooh booster pack artwork is sick though

    Entertainment brands often use overtly sexy character designs to sell their product. Someone sits there and consciously decides to pick these characters and highlight their assets because they think it will sell to their audience. But it's not something you typically find in a brand targeted at children, which is why I brought it up and highlighted it. I'm actually starting to think the demographic for the TCG is skewing older in recent years, which is why they've been making some artwork like this. I don't have a problem with the artwork personally, I'm just more curious about what these decisions say about the PTCG's demographics and if it's changing (getting older).

    That's the first ever picture of Necrozma I've seen that doesn't look like they got the trainee intern to design a pokémon. :D

    More so if you consider that as far as tournament goers go there are way more masters than juniors. So cards like this and skyla make sense. Japanese anime and games have been doing this for years so why not Pokemon get on board.

    Wow, I thought the Skyla reprint was too revealing. The first thing I see when I login is a boob crop. Card itself is decent though.
