Darkrai Prism Star and Super Boost Energy Prism Star from SM5!

The last two Prism Star cards of SM5 have been revealed! The set will release in Japan on December 8th, but we should have full translations by early next week. Thanks goes to Jake C. and Vincent for the translations!

Darkrai ◇ – Darkness – HP160
Basic Pokemon

You can’t have more than 1 Prism Star card with the same name in your deck. If a Prism Star card is discarded, put it in the Lost Zone.

Ability: Nightmare Star
When you play this Pokemon from your hand onto your Bench, you may attach 2 [D] Energy from your hand to this Pokemon.

[D][D][D][D] Abyssal Sleep: 120 damage. Your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Asleep. Your opponent flips 2 coins instead of 1 between turns. If either of them is tails, that Pokemon is still Asleep.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: Psychic (-20)
Retreat: 2


Super Boost Energy ◇ – Special Energy

You can’t have more than 1 Prism Star card with the same name in your deck. If a Prism Star card is discarded, put it in the Lost Zone.

This card provides [C] Energy.

While attached to a Stage 2 Pokemon, this card provides every type of Energy but provides only 1 Energy at a time. While attached to a Stage 2 Pokemon, if you have 3 or more Stage 2 Pokemon in play, this card instead provides every type of Energy but provides only 4 Energy at a time.

(That’s a lot of chicken nuggets.)

In case you missed it earlier on my Twitter, a new Manaphy and Alolan Sandshrew will be in SM5, although their images are currently too small to read. Looker‘s full art card was also revealed.

    That's not what they're saying.

    Play prism star from your hand, attach, then ninja boy into a good Darkrai. Now prism star is in your deck and can be used again.

    Gardevior? I can see people playing it as a one of, but it also works good as a rainbow energy for stage 2's.

    Would SBE count when attached to a Delphox BREAK?

    Solgaleo GX seems interesting! Though what to power up with the Super Boost Energy is another question... Another old Solgaleo GX? And pairing Energy Loto with Mallow is a neat combo. =)

    Nope Delphox BREAK is a “BREAK” not a “stage 2”

    super boost energy is easily countered by e hammer so its gone once your opponent plays the hammer down or hits a head on acid spray. Kinda meh for me.

    Why yes it does. The only decks that may use this are Dragon,Gardevoir GX, Metagross/Solgaleo or Solgaleo/Dialga. First we need a special energy search in standard; then decks that use stage 2s would be able to utilize Star Prism Energy well.

    Man, that Prism Energy is BROKEN. It's a good thing that it's limited to one in a deck, otherwise that would be majorly abused in most decks.

    That Darkrai's no slouch, either - gonna have to consider running that whenever Ultra Prism comes out, if I can get some Zoroark-GX together and some other cards, could be something to work with. On the downside, everyone at my club in Ireland is transitioning to MTG, so I'll be lucky if I have anyone left to play with ^^;

    Remember the old cards from HGSS that could give back cards that were sent to the lost zone? They should make another one or two since Pokémon brought back the L.Z.. That way you can reuse prism cards. Just discarding prism cards from anywhere puts them in the Lost Zone? It would be more logical to have some way of reusing them; because the "No more than 1 prism star card of the same name in a deck" rule is unfair IMO.

    How is it unfair? What’s next are you going to say GX attacks being only once a game is unfair as well?

    Sad face. With the exception of Gardy and maybe Decidueye I can't think of anything else that this might be useful.

    Honestly, Skyla could work as well, since it allows you to search your deck for any Trainer card... Volkner works much better in electric decks

    I'm assuming these will have the same rarity as the BREAKS and Ace Specs.

    This energy will be interesting in Gardevoir GX. I see potential in that Darkrai too.

    I disagree. 4 for 120
    I disagree on the Darkrai point. 4 for 120 is just what Turbo Dark needs. It OHKO's all Safeguard moms and the ability is pretty good. Problem is benchspacd may restrict exactly how much play it sees, though it's ability IS good
