Glameow from SM5, Prism Star Cards Not Limited to Pokemon!

Sinnoh’s resident cat has been revealed from SM5 Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! Thanks goes to Hannes S. for the translation!

Glameow – Colorless – HP60
Basic Pokemon

[C] Gentle Bite: 10 damage. During your opponent’s next turn, the Defending Pokemon’s attacks do 40 less damage.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1

Ah, it feels like only yesterday when Glameow was revealed (err, 11 years ago, but you get the idea).

In case you missed it in the SM5 story I posted a few hours ago, the official Japanese TCG website has confirmed there will be Prism Star cards for Supporters and Energy, not just Pokemon. So it seems we’re getting Ace Spec cards again!

    This card definitely wont get any play with the meta (or even in any other meta) but it reminds me of the Phantom Forces Liepard that took 60 less damage for 1 energy. Glameow may be fun and useful in a prerelease though.

    Great artwork from an artist I typically detest. This is much better than the derpy Eevee and Pikachu.

    Okay so "ace spec" type of supporters.... We all know how strong the items were and they were a must in every deck. Just think of how strong these 1 of supporters may be...

    Now 1 thing I thought of which I REALLY DON'T LIKE. The reuse of a gx attack. Which imo would be too strong so i kinda hope they will pass on that one. But I can only think of how strong these will be... Just prepare yourselves

    Truth.

    On the other hand, one per deck + exile is how we balance trump card in my playgroup...

    • Glameow - I omly give Geodudes to Stage 1 final evo (Purugly)
    • Alolan Raticate-GX - 80 for free is good, shrinking your hand size. The GX atk is good for bulk use of items next turn but N is everywhere 'til it rotates still hurts sometimes. Same feeling as Metagross' Algorithm. But the fact that no big decks that is weak to DARK, maybe not this time. 3 Geodudes.
    • Cresselia - Minimum of 110-150 damage for 1 Energies is so cool, but it is limited to Psychic and Rainbow Energy related-decks. 3 Geodudes
    • Weavile - *Another One!* Enough of Gen 4 references. It triggers my inner Sinnoh-baby. DP era was the start of my TCG career. Onto Weavile, like Raticate, nobody is weak to Dark, like BUS Weavile, it relies on abilities. Not like BUS Weavile, you must expect opponent playing lota of Lele to pile damage. I still love it. 3 Geodudes

    Prism star trainers won't be quite like ace specs though, because you can play as many of them in total as you want. I hope they don't make them to generic, because that might lead to some real moneycreep...

    Imagine there being like 10 staple prism trainers and each of them being 10-20$. That would turn Pokemon into tcg hell, right next to Yu-gi-oh...

    I wonder if this means that we're gonna get some reprint or new version of prism energy...I mean, it's only fitting.

    Hmmm... Interesting. Honestly, I don't hate these cards since they seem a bit more balanced than other cards we've received thus far. Alolan Raticate GX seems like a good partner for Baby Alolan Raticate (in that you can hunt out tool cards for free attacks for a whole deck that wouldn't need to run any energy) and Weavile in a meta where abilities are everywhere seems acceptable. Question on Cresseila's attack - if your opponent doesn't have any damage counters on their pokemon, can you use the first attack?

    Alolan Raticate would look sweet in my collection.. Finally the rat got some honor..

    But I really want that Espeon / Umbreon box... It look so gorgeuous

    Raticate would be decent if it wasn't limited to 2 cards. The second attacker is terrible, and the GX attack would be good if everyone wasn't playing 4 N.

    I can see a terrible 0 energy free attack deck using this this Raticate, BUS raticate, and Mow Rotom
    (That DarkIntegralGaming would play)

    Prism Star cards aren't like ACE SPEC though because you can have more than one in your deck, just not of the same Prism Star. Imagine if you could have Dowsing Machine, Master Ball and Computer Search in the same deck.

    I like the Weavile they've revealed, they're really trying to push an anti-ability weavile deck between this and the BUS one. Some of the best decks in the meta right now aren't ability reliant, but these two weaviles will be sleeper counters waiting in the wings if any ability decks start getting too big.

    Give me the Lillie sleeves and nobody gets hurt! That would be a nice interesting robbery...

    In all seriousness those Lillie sleeves are beautiful :p

    I'm excited for Prism Star cards now that they are not limited to only Pokemon. I really like the idea of limited, but very powerful, cards. I hope they won't be too rare or valuable- but I am anticipating 1 or 2 of them a box, maybe.

    I would argue that Weavile SM5 is an excellent meta card. Decks such as Gardevoir tend to have a lot of Pokémon with abilities. The same applies to Solgaleo decks and Silvally decks. Both Solgaleo GX have decent abilities and there is also Tapu Lele GX. In case of Silvally GX variants we have Silvally GX, Oranguru, and Tapu Lele GX. I can see Weavile hitting for 200 for one energy with ease. However, there are also decks that are low on abilities. Garbodor variants come to mind here. Since Garbotoxin states that all other Pokémon do not have abilities Weavile only hits for 50 damage most of the time. Thus, Weavile is an excellent counter to several meta decks but Garbodor is a great counter to Weavile decks.

    Ah, the cons of autocorrect.

    It was simply my opinion. I am not at all suggesting that the particular artists continually produce 'rubbish' work. I am simply not a fan of the works mentioned. I did not intend to upset or offend.

    That's presumptuous of you. But sadly, no. Just a fan.
