Dialga-GX from SM5!

A new Dialga-GX will be in SM5! The set will release in Japan on December 8th. Thanks goes to Vincent for the translation!

Dialga-GX – Dragon – HP180
Basic Pokemon

[M] Clock Up: Draw cards until you have 6 cards in your hand.

[M][C][C] Shred: 80 damage. This attack’s damage isn’t affected by any effects on your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

[M][M][M][C][C] Timeless GX: 150 damage. Once this turn is over, it’s your turn again. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

When your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Fairy (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 3

That’s a first for the Pokemon TCG: getting to go twice in a row! Of course the Pokemon that can manipulate time would be the one to do it!

And thankfully Dialga is not another Metal-type. It was last a Dragon-type in Plasma Blast.

  1. SupremeLeaderQuagsire Does this look like the face of mercy?


    We had a Dragon-type Dialga in Plasma Blast.


    GX attack is the only really "standout" thing about it, all Metal "jokes" aside. (Seriously, this isn't even a joke at this point.) Dusk Mane Necrozma-GX/Dialga-GX/Magnezone with Mount Coronet, anyone?

    Even tho it cost much, with all the new Metal energy acceleration cards and such, this has got to be the best GX attack released! use this GX attack to KO Lele, next turn, retreat into another high dmg attacker = 4 prizes

    All metal needs now is a "metal patch " lolol

    • Dialga-GX - Hmmm. Weak to Broski, accesible to Heavy Ball, standard HP for Basic GX, the attack is too expensive and underpowered, except the first one, the GX attack is nuts, lets you gave two turns to smash your opponent, two turns to hoard prizes, but for 5 Energy. Yes, Metal Support will help, but do you want to play lots of energy, just to use the "Once-per-game" attack? No. Prof. pokebeach said on his video, that he hates those GX attack that made him attsch extra energy just to use his "Once-per-game" attack. We have this similar case to Mewtwo-GX, Yeah, this card is pretty underwhelming. Sorry, I'll give it 1-2 Geodudes. The GX atk is good but it's too expensive

    All the GXs in Ultra Prism
    • Dusk Mane Necrozma GX
    • Dawn Wings Necrozma GX
    • Glaceon GX
    • Leafeon GX
    • Dialga GX
    • Palkia GX
    • 1 Unnamed Non-UB GX
    • 3 Unnamed UB GXs
    Yeah, it is confirmed that Cool Solgaleo GX and Meh Lunala GX won't be in this set. So Gardevoir is having a deep breath now becuase the big threat is in the next set.

    Prism Star:
    • Solgaleo
    • Lunala
    • Giratina
    • Cyrus
    • 2 Unnamed, including the possible Energy Card.

    This card is ass. Shame. I love Dialga as a Pokémon so much.
  8. joffreyspikes #Drampazizzle


    It will be Giratina, Blacephalon, Stakataka and Naganadel.

    You couldn't have made it a steel type? Well now this card has no synergy with Cyrus. Congrats Pokémon, you destroyed my only hope for dialga GX. but this card is still incredibly good

    looks stupidly good paired with guzma and any metal-accelerating deck. guzma+CB and you're OHKOing a benched lele for 2 prizes and get to go again. shred also allows it to battle hoopa and alolan ninetales, although it can't ohko either.
  12. steffenka Miss Vaanjie


    Why do you think Giratina will be the last non-GX card? I mean, it's already gotten a Prism Star.

    Also imma predict Palkia here:

    Spaceless GX: Switch seats with your opponent.

    Just because it makes sense to have trios. And I think that Palkia's GX will be this:

    WWWCC: Spaceless GX 150

    For the rest of the game, you may have as many Benched Pokémon as you like.

    They made this a dragon type without having the one thing that all dragons have. 2 energy type attacks. Dialga from Plasma Blast had a Psychic Metal combination, and the lack of Psychic energy to power up an attack means that this card should have been Metal type from the start.

    I just feel that this card is a dragon for the sake of being a dragon, and not from a gameplay standpoint, where all dragons must have 2 energy type attacks.


    in before "While in play, Special Energy [Prism Star] provides every type of Energy, but provides [x] Energy at a time. If the Pokémon this Special Energy [Prism Star] uses a GX attack, it does not count towards the 1 GX attack per game rule. When the Pokémon this Special Energy [Prism Star] is attached to uses a GX attack, discard this card and put it in the Lost Zone."

    I called it

    i freaking knew we would get Dialga GX

    And i betcha we will be getting Palkia GX as well
  17. RealSlim Dragons Breeder


    So it definitely looks like Dragon type cards do not need a double type of energy anymore for the attacks. Good.
  18. TotoBoss Kappa


    I thought the 3 unnamed ub's would the the fa/rr's of Celesteela-GX / Xurkitree-GX / Pheromosa GX. As we haven't gotten those yet
  19. Nistua Aspiring Trainer


    Solgaleo / Lunala GX could be Tin/Collection promos or not ? They were in a deck in JP, so it would make sense.
  20. Nistua Aspiring Trainer


    Just how I like my Ruler of Time, Ancient God, legendary Pokémon: Mediocre at best. Oh baby, really hyped for this card /s

    The GX attack could be slightly unfair though, IF you can power it up.
