Better Images of ‘Ultra Beast-GX Premium Collections!’

 

We now have better product images for the “Ultra Beast-GX Premium Collections!”

The images confirm Celesteela-GX will be Metal-type like Kartana-GX. Unfortunately the cards are still a bit too small to read.

Both collections will be released on November 3rd. Each will come with…

• 2 foil promo cards featuring Ultra Beasts (Pheromosa-GX and Celesteela-GX or Buzzwole-GX and Xurkitree-GX)
• A foil oversize card featuring an Ultra Beast (Pheromosa-GX or Buzzwole-GX)
• An awesome playmat showing off the Ultra Beasts (1 of 2 designs)
• 8 Pokemon TCG booster packs
• A cool Pokemon coin
• A code card for the Pokemon TCG Online

    How come Vespiquen has free retreat but Pheromosa doesn't?

    Aw, seems like the playmats are just gonna feature some Ken Sugimori artwork. That's a shame, because I really wish this artwork was used for the playmats instead. I'd probably have to buy one of the collections if they used this art for the mats.

    Uh, the Japanese set has Buzzwole in it, so are we losing Buzzwole I wonder? At least, the normal GX printing.

    Xurkitree, Pheromosa, and Celesteela weren't announced for Crimson Invasion, right? So that means they'll be exclusive to these promos boxes?

    Anyone know what they do? Cards are too blurry to read from these pics.

    The only thing I can make out of this is that their GX attacks are their codenames in the video games.

    Celesteela GX's artwork is awesome, with that arm-cannon leveled straight ahead.

    I love how Celesteela is weak to electric but its a metal type. At least they put the weakness for its other typing(Flying)

    Yes and no. They're confirmed to be in the SM4+ mini-set in Japan, so they're either taking them out of there or they're alt arts with the actual arts coming out in SM5 for us. Either way, we're getting FAs and Rainbows in SM5.

    Predictions:

    Xurkitree-GX: Non-physical GX attacks have promising in the past and I just get the feeling that the ability will be insane. Very good and potentially meta-defining.

    Celesteela-GX: High damage output but at the end of the day will be too expensive to use.

    Pheromosa-GX: good, has low energy attacks, I have high hopes for that main attack.

    If I had to guess, I'd say two weeks after they release since they come out the same day as Crimson Invasion.

    The stuff that I can read is on Pheromosa for the Gx attack. It looks like it says this attack does 50 damage times the amount... I can't read the rest
    The first attack seems like it says: You may use this attack on your first turn. Which makes sense, but I'm not really sure. And it's a bit of a stretch.

    For Xurkitree the first part of it's Gx attack looks like it says: Your opponent reveals their hand... But I can't read the rest
    And it's attack's effect looks like it says: Discard an energy attached to your opponents active Pokemon. This is a stretch though, as it is hard to make out the words.

    This is all guessing, non of it is actually true. It's just what I can make out in the text.

    From what I can see Xurkitree's Lightning GX lets you look at your opponents hand and add one card you find there to their Bench. Then i believe it does a certain amount of damage to that pokemon.

    Pheromosa does 50x the number of cards in your opponents hand. edit: apparently this is wrong lol its opponents prizes

    Celesteelas looks like its called Blaster GX and you have to move all of something. and then it does something to each of your opponents pokemon. This ones hardest to read, the only things i can make out is the"move all" and the name of the attack. If it was called Blaster GX it kinda makes sense that it would be an attack that deals some spread damage so my guess is on that.

    Remember that the other UBs' GX attacks revolve around prize cards in some way, so I tend to think these will keep the trend...but who knows...
