New Solgaleo-GX and Lunala-GX in November Starter Set!

As posted a while ago, a new “Starter Set: Solgaleo-GX and Lunala-GX” will be released in Japan on November 10th. It will feature a 60 card deck, a playmat, and the usual goodies you find in a theme deck package.

The deck will feature a brand new Solgaleo-GX and Lunala-GX! They will likely be released in our February set or in a spring promo product. These are the first new Solgaleo-GX and Lunala-GX since Sun & Moon.

Update: A premium edition of this deck will be released which includes a new Rockruff and Lycanroc promo, a deck box, and eight booster packs. The product image has also given us the full translations for Solgaleo and Lunala.

    Solgaleo's Turbo Strike sounds like fun paired with the original Solgaleo.

    Man if this comes out in English it’s gonna be so good against Gardi. A DCE for knockout? That’s pretty good

    Hmmm

    the new Solgaleo GX could be a good replacement for baby Solgaleo in decks that run the 4-2/3-3-1 line?

    That Solgaleo GX is absolutely dirty especially paired with the Solgaleo GX we already have

    Seems like a better option than GRI Rayquaza imo

    But we'll see.

    Solgaleo GX is bound to be the next Gardevoir GX counter and BDIF. I hope this hits the US. A 4-3-2-2 split, paired with current fillers like Vulpix. It'll be hard to stop with Max Potion.

    That Solgaleo GX is beyond powerful. May God have mercy on us all.

    Volcanion/Fire decks are no longer a problem, but why does lunala have 230 hp instead of 250 like its previous gx and counterpart solgaleo.

    I don’t see a single matchup where solgaleo would lose with a 2/2 split of the old and new GX.
    BDIF incoming?

    Woah, Solgaleo is amazing. I really like the ability as well, basically prevents those weakness one shots. Besides weakness, nothing one shots Solgaleo. I surely will keep this card in mind...

    Why wouldn't you do both? This new one gives you NO weaknesses! That's a HUGE deal for Solgaleo and makes it's Fire match up wayyyyy better. Wish it was hitting for 130 instead so you could get the one shot on Baby Volc, but honestly that's a small inconvenience. The biggest issue I see is how do you split the pokemon? 2 old gx 1 new, and 1 baby seems inconsistent. You could do 2:2:1 but then you have my evolutions than you have basics.

    Poor Lunala though man... Psychic Transfer is interesting in theory but Psychic doesn't have any good acceleration. I suppose you could pair the new Lunala with the old Solgaleo and the new Solgaleo... but then you really should just build a Solgaleo deck.

    I still think baby Solgaleo has its merits, like not being hard-walled by baby Alolan Ninetales. If anything, the new Solgaleo GX can replace the Rayquaza depending on space.

    I won't give Geodudes yet to both of them, unless the full card ate revealed. For Solgaleo-GX, 4-5 Geodudes, partial.
    UPDATED!
    • Solgaleo-GX - This card... Is AMAZING! No Weakness to the party, attacks for DCE, but it doesn't mean that it can be tech into any deck, whatsoever due from being a Stage 2. #InvincibleSolgaleo Garb is the prob, but Blowers got your back. I see this and Shining Genesect being a thing but not really. Whose energies I can offer just to make worth of Sol's 120-for-DCE attack? As a sidenote, it One-shots Broski! 5 Geodudes, I'm done!
    • Lunala-GX - OHKO GX attack! But it's too expensive. Period! 2 Geodudes

    Solgaleo is bonkers. Lunala, sorry, go be a bench-sitter. Solgaleo is probably big now. I know I'm speaking pretty early, but 250 HP with no weakness and 120 for a DCE? Dumb. Just dumb. GX attack likely doesn't matter, but maybe it will in some games.

    Why? Why couldn't Lunala be the better one this time?

    If you thought Solgaleo was powerful before, look at the updated translation for that GX attack!

    GX cards that are done by someone different?! And it's PLANETA?! And they're visually appealing?!

    ...This is a really good sign for things to come.
