Looker, Looker’s Whistle, and Oranguru from SM5!

Looker was introduced in Pokemon Platinum and has made many appearances in the games and anime since then. So naturally he’d be included in SM5 since the set is all about Sinnoh! Thanks goes to Vincent for the translations!

Looker – Trainer
Supporter

Draw 3 cards from the bottom of your deck.

You may play only 1 Supporter card during your turn (before your attack).


Looker’s Whistle – Trainer
Item

Search your deck for up to 2 Looker, reveal them, and put them into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.

You may play as many Item cards as you like during your turn (before your attack).


Oranguru – Colorless – HP120
Basic Pokemon

[C] Resource Management: Put 3 cards from your discard pile on the bottom of your deck in any order you like.

[C][C][C] Erudition: 60 damage. Your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Confused.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2

And like other characters, Looker’s Ken Sugimori artwork has been used before — on Looker's Investigation. But this time he gets a close-up!

Looker full art incoming?

    Now that missing clover starts to make sense. It may end up being a viable niche deck...

    so ideal use of cyrus prism star,

    play pokemon catcher/counter catcher/escape rope to get a weaker poke in opponents active, play cyrus prism star so they only have 2 bench left, use sylveon gx plea gx to leave them with just the weak active. as others have said best as a mid-late game use.

    looker/looker whistle/oranguru interesting synergy between these, doubt the whistle will be used much but we could see some play from the other two, not sure what else we have that puts cards on bottom of deck will have to look, but I could see these being combined to get most of missing clover back

    • Looker/Looker's Whistle - Perfect! 5 Geodudes. Because you can do it on T1 with Lele to draw wanted cards in your deck, weird but cool. On the Item card, you don't need it since you'll few Looker cards. 2 Geodudes.
    • Oranguru - a Non-Gen 4 Pokémon finally BREAKs the trail of cards with Gen 4 reference in Ultra Lrism. You can tech in a deck that plays Looker. 3 Geodudes

    @steffenka , please forgive me.

    Cyrus can only work if the active is Alolan Vulpix since it only works if the active is Water or Metal, and decks commonly play Alolan Vulpix. Perfect esrly game disruption if you ask me.

    so Looker is another Hau type card, but from the bottom of the deck. Interesting. It's basically a slightly different reprint of Underground expedition from Expedition. (Below). I believe this card got a re-print in one of the diamond and pearl sets, but looker gets you 3 cards in stead of choosing 2 cards from 4.

    The Uranguro can be used to put 3 copies of missing clover at the bottom of your deck and looker can draw them back for you next turn. good good thats a strong combo. also that lookers whistle card will be good if used before Uranguro's first attack.

    Oranguru might make fossils easier.

    Oranguru/ Looker/ Fossils anyone? Fossil GX Pokemon could be amazing.

    Eh, it seems kind of weak as long as N is around, it's too easy to shuffle your opponent's deck at the moment. But after next rotation this could be pretty good, faces competition from Mallow/Zoroark, which grabs you one less card but uses abilities so you aren't vulnerable to an immediate N. If we get more fossils or other cards that benefit from bottom of the deck plays this could definitely be good, I could see this Oranguru seeing play in an Aerodactyl deck immediately.

    Honestly this looker combo in a budget build could be cool, because its an option to always have a supporter if you don't have tapu-lele theoretically

    You should be.

    Idk it's a nice combo in theory, but using an attack, then a supporter next turn just to get 3 cards that you might not even use until the following turn seems pretty counter productive especially with N still in the format.

    Considering we're getting another Bastiodon, that could very well be the case.
