Ultra Recon Squad and Steel Frying Pan from SM5+!

Reveals of SM5+ Ultra Force have resumed! Today two new Trainers have been revealed — Ultra Recon Squad and Steel Frying Pan.

SM5+ will release in Japan on January 19th. It is expected to mostly contain reprints from SM5.

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

Steel Frying Pan – Trainer
Item

Attach a Pokemon Tool to 1 of your Pokemon that doesn’t already have a Pokemon Tool attached to it.

The [M] Pokemon this card is attached to takes 30 less damage from attacks and has no Weakness.

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

(They want you to hit Gardevoir in the face with this pan. Never seen them so sorry for printing a card.)


Ultra Recon Squad – Trainer
Supporter

Discard up to 2 Ultra Beasts from your hand. Then, draw 3 cards for each card you discarded in this way.

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

(We’ll probably get this as a full art Supporter in the set.)

    Interesting supporter... If we have a way to get them back easily, this could be nuts! Ultra Wormhole to get a UB from discard?

    Also... WTF TPCi... This tool is nuts!

    • Ultra Recon Squad - 3 Geodudes because it is too specific and it is like Team Magma Grunt, if we have a Propagation UB, this card is nuts.
    • Steel "Drying" Pan - additional bulk, good. No weakness, good. Being covered by cool Solgaleo, can be. So, it's 3 Geodudes due that Field Blower is a thing.
    • Solgaleo and Lunala Promo - Is that true that these will postpone?

    Lolol I love this, especially because of the Brock Gif, seems like a must have card in metal decks to combat Volcanion's return

    That frying pan is gonna help so much against Volcanion. Against anything really. It's a better hard charm, plus weakness policy.

    My distributor has moved the Lucario box to 3/9, but doesn't have the Solgaleo/Lunala Boxes up. So it's likely those 2 have also been pushed back in the US

    Aside from Field Blower existing, I'm not sure why Gardevoir couldn't use the Frying pan just as effectively as any other Pokemon might use Weakness Policy, which sees basically no play as near as I can tell. Not sure that's much of an "I'm sorry" as a "Hey, here's a goofy idea!"

    The Ultra Recon Squad full art will probably look amazing.
