Silvally-GX From SM4 Revealed!

Silvally-GX from SM4  The Awoken Hero and The Transdimensional Beast has been revealed! Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translation!

The booster box images reveal that Pikachu, Oranguru, Corphish, Registeel, and Cinccino will be in the sets, as you can see to the right.

Silvally-GX – Colorless – HP210
Stage 1 – Evolves from Type: Null

Ability: Gyro Unit
As long as this Pokemon is in play, all of your Basic Pokemon have 0 retreat cost.

[C][C][C] Turbo Drive: 120 damage. Attach a Basic Energy card from your discard pile to 1 of your Benched Pokemon.

[C][C][C] Rebellion GX: 50x damage. This attack does 50 damage times the number of your opponent’s Benched Pokemon. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack per game.)

When 1 of your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2

Also releasing alongside the sets on September 15th are a Silvally deck box and five sets of card sleeves featuring either Silvally, Drampa, Tapu Lele, Golisopod, or Team Skull.

Update: If you buy a booster box of both SM4 sets from Pokemon Centers in Japan, you’ll get a pack of 64 Acerola card sleeves.

    Looking at some of the artwork on the side. Very interesting, especially the Oranguru and Registeel.

    Hoping Silvally has an ability that changes type or a move that causes weakness

    This card is pretty good. Will be a hard choice between this and Dodrio.

    I like this one. Just give it a basic energy and a Double Colorless and you're good. Heck, you can even power up Type: Null with Kiawe turn 1. Nice 2 shot potential here along with some energy acceleration, though it's not quite Mega Mantric.

    And I just had a thought: will they make more Silvally of different types like they did with Arceus?

    Well screw my old post let's see.... volcanion / lapras might really like this. For lapras this means no manaphy (aka free prize) on the bench so not really a guzma target. though the sad thing is sylvally can't really abuse it's own ability. so a retreat of 2 isn't very nice then. so I guess it depends. Volcanion likes this so it doesn't have to run float stone anymore. I guess. I mean the same thing applies here, sylvally can't abuse it's own ability since it's a stage 1 therefor you kinda do want to run float stone still? idk. I guess guzma works just fine those times.

    Now for the first attack it's pretty basic, nothing special really. just 3 colorless 1 basic to the bench nothing special

    the gx attack is just lycanroc's nothing more to say

    Two solid attacks and an incredible ability, all wrapped up into a nice support Pokémon. I can't say I'm not excited.

    Oh my that Pikachu is awful. Almost as bad as Derpy Eevee from SM1. The fact that it's yet another Pikachu makes it worse. I can only hope it's to get a non-promo Alolan Raichu finally.

    I was really hoping for something where it changes its type, had a better gx attack than that and only 120 damage regular ehh. The artwork is only really exceptional about this card.

    This is so super good! I think that this is it. I'll be playing this. I just need to figure out a good Basic partner. Could Type: Null be that partner? That will be cool.

    They should really start putting codes with these sleeves so you can have them online as well because they're AMAZING. Though I don't expect this to happen any time soon if ever because Japanese products don't seem to have any codes at all either so it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense if the Japanese sleeves did. Which is such a shame because I would love to have these things in ptcgo. They look simply amazing <3
