New Silvally Memory Cards in SM4+!

Silvally-GX can now turn into a Lightning or Fire-type! “Electric Memory” and “Fire Memory” will be included in SM4+.

Psychic Memory and Fighting Memory were previously released in SM4. Each is a Tool that exclusively changes Silvally-GX‘s type.

SM4+ will be released in Japan next Friday, but we’ll have scans before then. Be sure to keep checking back!

These new cards should be included in our February set next year.

(You know, the English TCG should really rename Lightning to Electric and Metal to Steel for franchise consistency.)

    I see Silvally being a meta deck forever with these cards and considering these cards have different names, you won't have to fight for deck space. Not sure I really like this.

    Oh snap! If only we didn't have to wait until February.

    Skyla will be Silvally's best friend.

    Omg Lycanroc is going to be even better :D. First Zoroark and now another super strong fighting-weak pokemon that gives up two prizes and can even just be used as an attacker, or even a support pokemon, only to be lycanroc'd from the bench. Especially looking at how there is no grass memory yet, makes me all the more excited. After this long period of Lycanroc being criminally (looking at how much potential it had ) underplayed, now may finally come its time to shine.

    • Lightning and Fire Memory Cards - the score between these and Silvally-GX will never changed. Still 3-4 Geodudes. I know the ability, atk, and GX are good. But NightLyc is everywhere with Zoroark-GX and Gallade is in some Broski decks, every though these tools can hit Ho-oh, Golisopod, and Metagross for weakness.

    damn. i was hoping for a water type memory card, so I have a strong pokemon to aqua patch too in my alolan Ninetales deck. but fire and lightning are good too. water decks are usually weak to metal, grass and lightning, and these memory cards cover all those types weaknesses. sm 4 already has a fighting memory card though for lightning type decks mind, though when i say that, not many water decks at the moment have a lightning weak pokemon, unless they play wishiwashi gx or the upcoming gyarados gx.

    i would say, if your going to be playing Silvally in alolan ninetales to use the fire memory card as your memory card of choice, but if a water type one gets revealed... oh boy the energy acceleration from aqua patch will be lit!

    So maybe Sivally/Weavile will be a thing after all...

    Fire Memory is probably the most relevant so far, since you one-shot Golisopod and rip into Metagross. Run Silvally with Magearna EX or something too to handle Garde.

    Silvally will only become more versatile with more memories, but I don't see it as stable. Plus, making meta calls will likely be what makes or breaks the deck by then.

    You could use the shiny Silvally promo (which won't be shiny in the West) who searches out Item cards

    SM4+ is one the Japanese mini-sets going into English SM5, so we will more likely get 4-6 Memory cards per set by your logic.

    Being forced to run a separate tool card for each individual matchup in the meta is pretty heavy on deckspace.

    There's also that Magerna that can send to your hand a tool card from one of you Pokemon:

    Not as flexible as Weavile but is easier to get into play. Only might matter if Alolan Muk get's big.

    I like this! It will be interesting to see if they release memory cards for all types (or all except dragon) and how it will compete against other decks.

    Silvally-GX seems almost Over powered imo. He was already looking fairly promising before all these memory cards were revealed and would have been a good tech in a lot of decks like Volcanion, but now it seems like you could plop him into any deck with basic Pokemon, and them give him a memory card to cover the weakness that the deck's mains attacker and probably a metal type memory card for Gardevoir and he becomes the deck's main attacker.

    I like Fire Memory. Not sure on Lightning memory since it only hits a limited amount of Pokémon for weakness at the moment. Personally I believe that the likelihood of releasing further memory cards will depend on new Ultra Beasts to be released. Silvally is marketed as an Ultra Beast slayer. The present set of memory cards hits all of the original seven Ultra Beasts for weakness.

    Fighting Memory:
    Xurkitree GX, Guzzlord GX

    Psychic Memory:
    Nihilego GX, Buzzwole GX

    Fire Memory:
    Pheromosa GX, Kartana GX

    Lightning Memory:
    Celesteela GX

    Ultra Beast Adhesive is a Poison type and most likely will be represented as a Psychic type weak to Psychic in the trading card game. We already have that covered by Psychic Memory. Ultra Beast Burst is Fire and Ghost type. If it is represented as a Fire type we may receive Water Memory to enable Silvally Gx to hit it for weakness. Ultra Beast Assembly is Rock and Metal. This could mean that we receive either a Water Memory or a Grass Memory to enable Silvally Gx to hit it for weakness in the next set. This leaves us with Fairy Memory, Darkness Memory and Metal Memory. Since none of the currently revealed Ultra Beasts is weak to either of these three types we may not get them anytime soon.

    You're right. It is a Mantyke.

    What's with these Characters with Pokemon styles?
    Tierno - Vanillish
    Shauna - Gothita
    Trevor - Gardevoir
    Lillie - Mantyke

    Lightning Memory should be named "Electric Memory" despite the TCG terminology because that's what the item is called in the games.
