Leafeon-GX from SM5!

As predicted, Leafeon-GX will be in SM5 Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! This means Glaceon-GX will probably be in the set as well. SM5 releases in Japan on December 8th. Thanks goes to Jake C. for the translation!

Leafeon-GX – Grass – HP200
Stage 1 – Evolves from Eevee

Ability: Nature’s Breath
Once during your turn (before your attack), if this Pokemon is your Active Pokemon, you may heal 50 damage from 1 of your Pokemon with Energy attached.

[G][C][C] Solar Beam: 110 damage.

[G] Grand Bloom GX: For each Basic Pokemon on your Bench, search your deck for a card that evolves from that Pokemon and put it onto that Pokemon. (This counts as evolving that Pokemon.) Then, shuffle your deck. (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: Fire (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2

    The GX should read "For every basic pokemon in your bench, you may search your deck for a card that evolves from that pokemon and put it onto that pokemon (this count as evolving that pokemon). Shuffle your deck afterwards."

    Meh.


    Ability wouldn't be THAT bad if it didn't have to be in the active... and the attack is ugh. Not that good imo. GX attack could be useful I guess, but c'mon, don't tell me you are ONLY playing this card for its GX attack, A ONCE PER GAME ATTACK. EDIT: But other than that, the GX attack is the only thing that makes this not the worst card ever. With Deci it could be useful(and I thought TPCI banned forest so we wont see that stupid owl anymore), but what if you don't get this out on your first turn? What if Leafeon or Eevee is prized? Because i'm assuming you wont play more than 1 of these in that deck(to have some room for other useful card that benefit Deci more than this).

    This will probably see little to no play. The worst Eeveelution GX we have gotten so far.

    Nope, it would be
    "For every basic pokemon in your bench, you may search your deck for a card that evolves from that pokemon and put it onto that pokemon (this count as evolving that pokemon). Then shuffle your deck."

    Am I missing something? Because this seems really strong for Decidueye. T1 Brigette, attach a grass to SUM eevee, use GX and now your looking good for a whole lot of decidueye out there on T2.

    Oh yes! I'm so excited for this!! Leafeon is my second favorite Pokemon and I'm very glad it's getting a GX. Grand Bloom seems to be an insane GX attack, but unfortunately the rest of the card seems meh. At least it's able to get out onto the board easily so that it can start doing it's job almost right away.

    Well, whether it ends up being good or not, I'm definitely using it!

    Edit: Oh, and since you can use the GX so quickly, you get to set up a very well-developed board early and can get access to good Halas. This with Decidueye GX is going to be amazing.

    I really like this Leafeon.

    110 for one+DCE is... not bad.
    Especially for a Pokemon that will mainly see use for it's utility.
    It's GX attack is a pretty solid replacement for FoGP, and with a float stone, it's heal can be used every time you Guzma.

    Or you could be gimmicky, and actually use it as an attacker:
    Turn1:
    • Brigette for 3 Fomantis
    • Attach energy to Eevee
    • Evolve to Leafeon
    • GX attack for 3 Sunny Day Lurantis*
    With CB and a DCE, that's 170-200 damage on your second attack, while being able to heal itself for 50 every turn.

    Or, this could be slid into something like a Golisopod variant; to set up both Golisopod and Garbodors.

    *Decidueye would probably be better/more consistent damage-wise, but not as fast.

    Seems pretty underwhelming... Sylveon GX's attack power is 110 with a fairy energy, double colorless and no other txt. Same thing here... should we be expecting the same for Glaceon GX now????

    And man, I was so hype for a potential Jolteon-GX but now idk if I want one if it's not gonna be viable :/

    This is actually an extremely good card. I don't know what some of you are talking about.

    I actually want to try this out with 4 of the Lurantis Promo. Going second on turn 1, energy evolution into Leafeon GX, Brigette 3 Fomantis, maybe get a 4th with Nest Ball, then grand bloom. Next turn you're potentially hitting for 190 assuming you get the DCE, 220 if you're against a GX and have Choice Band. Also makes Hala pretty good as draw support.

    Edit: Could this make some Mega Pokemon relevant again? I wanna say no, but I'm not sure.

    Edit 2: lol saw someone beat me to the gimmick Sunny Day Lurantis strategy.

    • Leafeon-GX - There are ways to make this work on T1. 1.) Put Eevee (SM) on the active 2.) Attach a Grass Energy and it evolves into Leafeon-GX 3.) Use Ball-Lele-Brigette method 4.) Use the GX attack in the early game. Perfect set up Pokemon. 4 Geodudes

    Is it just me, or do the Eeveelution GXs seem rather... underwhelming? I mean, aside from Espeon, which was great at best, everything else has seemed rather disappointing.

    I will admit, the GX attack is rather good, but overall, it seems kinda weak...
