In addition to the TCG merchandise revealed last night, a new Espeon and Umbreon deck box will be sold at Japan’s Pokemon Centers starting December 8th. It will retail for 2,000 yen (about $18).


Update: The official Japanese TCG website has announced there will also be Prism Star Supporter and Energy cards, which some of our forum members predicted! So there won’t just be Prism Star Pokemon!

Since the Lost Zone mechanic has been revived due to Prism Star cards, the website also announced that the Lost Zone’s cards are now placed to the left of your Prizes. Originally, they were placed horizontally above your Prizes.

Clean artwork of the Prism Star symbol was also revealed:

    Also, two free attacks looks promising, but all the other gym challenge promos have been bad, I hope this one is good (as I wrote this before translations were up)

    If this is correct, wow, Japan really doesnt give out good cards for free.
  6. Memory 不安のない挑戦はない


    overall, you are really only playing this for the GX if at all. Certainly the second attack is unusable and the first attack might be useful in a pinch.

    Unfortunately even with this Weavile, the weavile honchkrow deck will still lose pretty badly to anything garb related. Like golisopod drampa and buzzwole.
