Pachirisu from SM5!

A new Pachirisu is the first card to be revealed from Japan’s next set, SM5 Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! The set will release in Japan on December 8th.

Pachirisu – Lightning – HP70
Basic Pokemon

[L] Static Generator: For each of your Benched Pokemon with a Nuzzle attack, search your deck for a basic [L] Energy and attach it to that Pokemon. Then, shuffle your deck.

[L] Nuzzle: Flip a coin. If heads, your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Paralyzed.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: Metal (-20)
Retreat: 1

America and Europe will get Pachirisu in our Ultra Prism set, which releases February 2nd.

Thanks goes to Michael S. and Bangiras for the translation!

Pachirisu’s artwork looks like a Mickey Mouse cartoon!

    I currently run a quad Tapu Koko deck, both in irl and PTCGO. The trouble with my deck is that I’m running the Electrode from the Evolutions set. This Electrode has the ability BuzzapThunder which allows it to be knocked out and used as a double electric special energy card, but it allows my opponent to take a prize. On the contrary, I am able to get second turn Tapu Kokos completely powered up for opposing knockouts. Seeing this new Pachirisu excites me because it would allow me to take out the volt orbs and electrodes in exchange for three Pachirisus. This may be cool, but it may also be a downfall.

    Still. Nuzzle Pikas are 60 HP which makes them more vulnerable to Buzzwole. I can't disagree in the strong energy accel. I worry on the early game stuff. I increase it to 3

    Come on! Pachirisu 2nd attack is Nuzzle, so 1rst turn lele Brigetteis very possible to have 3 picachu on beanch, and 1more Pachirisu(ok and lele so beanch is full. After possible K.O you can use 2nd Pachirisu even if you don't have extra energy in hand! I mean is very possible to use Raichu GX with 200+ damage on your 3rd attack!

    And (from counter fighting decks)can use a copy of Koko. (we need 14 L energy here, and a lot of pokemon) but attack is creasy good now! I give between 4 and 5 stars...

    I Like that it has 70 Hp and not 60
    I like the first attack it could be nice option for Raichu GX besides to Raikou

    and having a team full of paralzyer sounds fun too xD


    Maybe we get a new Pikachu with 70hp and nuzzle xD

    Damage Transport looks fun late game. 50x for each of your opponent's Pokémon with an Ability sounds like it could be a good tech in Garb if it is a Psychic or Colorless Energy; or if the Garb deck runs Rainbow.

    Tapu koko and other spread attackers best watch out. Decent energy cost for both attacks too, the 2nd attack only needing another Psychic attachment

    Garb makes it so that other Pokemon have no abilies which would lower the damage to zero

    First attack is not terrible.
    This new stage 1 pokemon who does 50 times the number of your opponents pokemon with abilities for 1 energy- could be pretty darn good!

    I know, I meant with Trashalanche. Pressuring your opponent away from both Leles and Items sounds pretty powerful to me. But you do have a point that Garbotoxin would make it counter-intuitive.

    Nice card. A direct counter to spread decks. Cannot wait for the stage one that hits 50 for each opposing Pokémon with an ability for one energy. Would be a lot of fun if it would be an alternate Garbodor :p.

    A new stage 1?
    Is it a new Pokemon? Or just a new card?

    I couldn't imagine it being a brand new Pokemon. They would've revealed something like that a while ago in some kind of USUM trailer.

    If it is however, it would be the first time TCPI reveals a brand new Pokemon and slaps that Pokemon into a TCG expansion before its slapped into a game.

    That stage one Pokemon sounds like he could be really good, and the probable counter we could need for the new Solgaleo GX. Since both of the Solgaleo GX and the Tapu Lele GX have an ability, it'll mean that this card could really hit for massive damage against them. I really hope this guy isn't a psychic type though, because Solgaleo's resistance to it. This card could be really great (or really awful)

    Drifblim is ok. Neither of it's attacks are awful, and on a basic Pokemon this could have been decent, but this is never really going to see play.

    Why the new Solgaleo, that card is the least of the new sets threats.

    So what cards from the upcoming set are more of a threat than the new Solgaleo?

    That's not the point.

    Sadly for Drifblim, due to being a stage 1, a player can anticipate in advance when Koko shouldn't be played when a Driftloon is on the bench. This makes the card more of a "check" than an actual counter.

    In addition, if Koko was a problematic issue in the meta, I'd rather use the Rotom from Fates Collide: It is a basic that can just be benched, given a DCE, and easily remove the 20 damage from each pokemon to the opponent's Tapu. Weaker, yes, but a much less anticipated move, as you could perform it in one turn much easier than Drifblim.
