Buzzwole and Alternate Type Torterra from SM5+!

A brand new Buzzwole will debut in SM5+ Ultra Force! The set will release in Japan on January 19th. Thanks goes to Jake C. for the translation!

Buzzwole – Fighting – HP130
Basic Pokemon (Ultra Beast)

[F] Sledgehammer: 30+ damage. If your opponent has 4 Prize cards remaining, this attack does 90 more damage.

[F][F][C] Swing Around: 80+ damage. Flip 2 coins. This attack does 20 more damage for each heads.

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

For the first attack, your opponent needs to have exactly four Prizes remaining.

Update: As expected, Grass-type Torterra from SM5 will be reprinted in SM5+ as a Fighting-type:

Torterra – Fighting – HP180
Stage 2 – Evolves from Grotle

[F][F][C] Giga Drain: 50 damage. Heal from this Pokemon the same amount of damage you did to your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

[F][F][F][C] Earthquake: 180 damage. This attack does 20 damage to each of your Benched Pokemon. (Don’t apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokemon.)

Weakness: Grass (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 4

    Hard counter to Dark decks for no reason. We need this for Gardevoir-GX, not dark. Will normally be a once per game attack, maybe twice. Really good for revenge killing however.

    • Buzzwole - 1 for 120 and it requires for the opponent to KO a GX to do it is good but complicated. At least a good non-GX attacker for Buzzwole decks. 3 Geodudes

    Not the best.
    But I suppose Buzzwole/Lycanroc got a 1prize Attacker.

    The GX is amazing. It was used in four of the Top 8 decks at Memphis for a reason.

    As far as the non-GX card here, yeah it's nothing great. The first attack could maybe be nice, but way too situational. I like the art though.

    Yes more Ultra Beast Tribal! The more non-GX Beasts we get the closer we get to making these attacks based off of prizes easier to preform. They have a draw supporter and Beast Tutor Stadium so I hope we start seeing more of these then the altered type Pokemon. More of what bugs me is that we're getting those same Pokemon with different types is the exact same art.

    I really hope normal Xurkitree is the damage anthem giving plus ten damage to each Beast's attack. Perhaps going with the prize based theme of the beasts and while you can only apply one at a time they deal more damage for each prize the opponent has taken?

    (Looking sooooo forward to the Metal Dialga GX.Wooooo....)

    That's... Interesting, actually. This Torterra has access to both Strong Energy and Choice Band for that first attack. It could be surprisingly hard to kill... I'll play around with it.
