SM5+ ‘Ultra Force’ Leaking!

We now have exclusive images of cards from SM5+ Ultra Force, which will release in Japan on Friday! I haven’t slept in several days and had a long day today, so I’ll put all the previously-revealed cards into this post later. For now it’ll just be new cards.

In terms of new, unrevealed cards: Heatran from SM5 will be reprinted in this set as a Fire-type, Magnemite and Magneton from SM5 are now Lightning-types, Rotom is now Psychic (called it!), and new Water-type Dewpider and Araquanid cards are in the set.

Here’s card images that were previously unrevealed:

 

Here’s the set’s brand new unrevealed cards, with translations thanks to Bangiras!

Dewpider – Water – HP60
Basic Pokemon

[C] Gnaw: 10 damage.

[W] Spider Web: During your opponent’s next turn, the Defending Pokemon can’t retreat.

Weakness: Grass (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1


Araquanid – Water – HP100
Stage 1 – Evolves from Dewpider

[W] Bubble: 30 damage. Flip a coin. If heads, your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Paralyzed.

[C][C] Bubble Trap: 40+ damage. If any of your Pokemon used Bubble during your last turn, this attack does 80 more damage.

Weakness: Grass (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1


Mesprit – Psychic – HP70
Basic Pokemon

Ability: Silence Wave
If you have Azelf in play, your opponent’s Pokemon have no Resistance.

[C][C] Mind Splash: 20+ damage. If Uxie is on your Bench, this attack does 50 more damage.

Weakness: Psychic (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1

This post will continued to be updated throughout the night, so be sure to keep checking back!

The new cards from SM5+ Ultra Force will be folded into our English SM6 Forbidden Light set, which releases in May.

    The Dialga has a different artwork than the SM5 full art, that's cool.
    Energy Recycler SR is pretty cool too, possibly saving it from a future rotation.
    Psychic Rotom might be cool?
    Fire Heatran is kind of neat, I guess? Non-EX/GX attacker, but you already got baby Volc, but 30 more damage, but energy discard and no acceleration.
    Nothing to say about new Dewpider and Araquanid, haven't seen em.

    Hopefully the other secret rare item isn't a disappointment. Let's get a Float Stone!

    Interesting - if these Palkia and Dialga alternate-type reprints are really included in Forbidden Light, then we already know all 8 GXs that will be in the set (Palkia, Greninja, Naganadel, Lucario, Yveltal, Dialga, Zygarde, Ultra Necrozma)

    Please no Float Stone reprint. Just let some cards die. N has already been in the format for six years.

    just don't see the point in having a second lighting type Magnezone when theres already a lighting type Magnezone from bkt.

    Aside from the dual type reprint, I guess when rotation hits (Breakthrough is guaranteed to rotate out) on September, we still have an Electric Magnetic Circuit Magnezone to use. That, and the new Magnezone has slightly higher HP than the other one.

    Well, there was technically a period of a few months when N was rotated from Standard, which was pretty awful (the only good/decent draw Supporters at that point were Sycamore, Shauna, and Professor Birch's Observations). TCPi pretty much had to bring back N because it was the only "check" to the popular aggressive strategies (read: Night March).

    Still, I agree that Float Stone should stay rotated - I imagine TCPi is testing to see whether Dashing Pouch, Escape Board, and other conventional switching cards will be enough to compensate.

    Maybe it is just me but I’m kind of annoyed with so many variants of the same card. It just feels lazy to me, I’d much rather have more variety then just alternate typing cards

    Could someone please explain why Japan uses English phrases for the titles of some of these cards?
    Like "E-ne-ru-gi ri-sa-i-ku-ru" (Rough pronounciation of "Energy Recycler")

    At least it looks amazing even though it will be bad until it gets released as a metal type
