This was previously a developing story: its facts, images, and insights may have changed without notice as the news was first developing. As of now, this post is finished. Any further updates will be marked with update tags.

SM4 ‘The Awoken Hero’ & ‘The Transdimensional Beast’ Translations!

SM4 will be release in Japan this Friday, but…!

As we predicted, due to the “Ultra Beast GX Battle Tournament” taking place in Tokyo this Saturday, the official Pokemon Card website has quietly uploaded the contents of the set early. This is because the set will be legal for tournament play and Pokemon (discretely) wants players to be able to study the cards ahead of time. In my 14 years of covering the TCG, this is only the second time the website has done this.

The website did not upload the secret rares, so we’ll have to rely on leaks for those cards over the next few days. We should exclusively have many of them tomorrow.

SM4 will release in America and Europe as Crimson Invasion on November 3rd.

A huge thanks goes to Bangiras for these translations!

Update (12:00 AM) – Hoozah, all the translations are now up! I can go to bed at midnight for once??

    Magikarp's Ability I beleive translates to something like

    Guts: As long as this pokemon is on your bench, it cannot be damaged.

    The attack is a signs of evolution type effect but I cant parse the exact wording

    We finally get the Alolan Marowak card. I have no true opinion on how good/bad it is.

    Also Surf Tail is Surge Surfer, Alolan Raichu's signature ability in the games. You might want to check that.

    Oh I'm laughing incredibly hard at the new Cincinno... Well, sure - many of these cards seem like filler, but at least the creators seem to have a sense of humor about some of them. ^.^

    Some more translations that should match up with the video game attacks:
    -Pumpkaboo: Surprise > Astonish (a move in the games that Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist get; XY Phantump also has the exact same attack)
    -Skiddo: Bullet Seed > Seed Bomb (while it's true that Bullet Seed is an attack in the games, the TCG version of Bullet Seed requires coin flips, while Seed Bomb doesn't; that, and Skiddo and Gogoat can't learn Bullet Seed in the games.)
    -Zweilous: Double Attack > Double Hit (a move Zweilous gets in the games)

    I'm liking the unique effects on some of these new cards! Especially that Cinccino, I'm definitely going to try and make that work somehow...

    That Kakuna is a great addition to the Evolutions Beedrill deck, which I thought was a good casual deck back before Sun & Moon. Might actually be worth playing again!

    Haha that Kakuna has Water Duplicates!

    Aside from that humour, this set looks garbage apart from the Ultra Beasts and Mismagius.

    EDIT: okay, that blackmail Cinccino is pretty funny.

    I see potential with Lusamine and Silvally GX, the former for recycling supporters and stadiums (essentially a more balanced Vs. Seeker in that only one supporter can be used per turn), and the latter for having the memories (2 of them so far; I'm hopeful for the other types to be released in the future) to hit other Pokemon for weakness. Gladion is also a nice tech/filler for some decks that need a specific card to get rolling.

    Alolan marowak is awesome that so good. Also gourgheist is pretty good in combination with eco arm and oranguru. Octillery and emolga are also good. And magikarp for expanded. And kakuna for beedrill evolutions. And i dont know how starmie would be used but its also pretty good. And milotic man really good non gxs this set.
