Ultra Necrozma-GX, Mystery Treasure from SM6 ‘Forbidden Light!’

Well we didn’t have to wait too long to see it! Right on the heels of the English Forbidden Light announcement comes the star of the set, Ultra Necrozma-GX, which was just revealed on an official livestream for a TCG tournament in Japan!

Ultra Necrozma-GX – Dragon – HP190
Basic Pokemon (Ultra Beast)

[P][M] Photon Geyser: 20+ damage. Discard all basic [P] Energy from this Pokemon. This attack does 80 more damage for each Energy card discarded in this way.

[P][M] Destructive Light GX: This attack can only be used if there are 6 or less total Prize cards remaining in play. Place 6 damage counters on each of your opponent’s Pokemon. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

When your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

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

And Japan’s SM5+ Ultra Force set isn’t even out yet, let alone America’s SM5 Ultra Prism set. They really wanted to reveal this card early!

Update: A new Trainer card, Mystery Treasure, has also been revealed!

Mystery Treasure – Trainer
Item

Discard a card from your hand in order to play this card.

Search your deck for a [P] or [N] Pokemon, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.

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

The card has the Psychic and Dragon-type symbols embedded in the medallion depicted, plus jewels matching their colors.

Thanks goes to Jake C. and Bangiras for the translations!

    This card is really weird... I mean, really weird. Only 1 non-GX attack? Hm. Doesn't seem bad in Metagross, and the GX attack will see play in any deck that plays Double Dragon. Perhaps, with Zygarde alseo coming out, we'll see a double dragon reprint? I hope so.

    Shame it's a dragon though.

    Nice GX early game spread... Too shame it can't be done early game. Nice first attack for the Metagross-GX deck. Too shame they're not viable now.

    Too shame of a card all in all.

    Why psychic energy discard for the first attack, not any...

    Huh. This is uh, pretty underwhelming. Maybe if they gave one of the strongest Pokemon in the game more than 1 mediocre attack, It's be playable. If it were metal instead of psychic discard, this would actually be really good. But the first attack wouldn't even work with Double Dragon Energy, so meh.

    Only deck I see coming out of this is Ultra Necrozma/Metagross. Shame the GX Attack is so mediocre.

    At least it's ultra pretty?

    NXD Gardevoir in Expanded...


    Well, if the translation is really "Energy card," then maybe not...

    Thanks god it only works with basic psychic. Otherwise this would have been broken in expanded with DDE.

    Ultra Necrozma GX looks rather decent. With two Basic Psychic Energy and a Metal Energy attached this will hit for a solid 180 and discard both of them. Include either Choice Band or Devoured Field and this card starts to hit numbers. Remeber that energies can be recovered with Lunala Prism Star and the card also has access to Beast Ring to attach two Basic Energy cards from the deck as soon as the opponent took two prize cards.

    I really like this card tbh. I think metagross has a chance to come back particularly with this thing one shot-ing most of the current meta with a CB

    Ancient Treasure's art loosely reminds me of the Ancient Mew card aesthetic. Doubt it's intentional, but eh. (Has the TCG ever referenced that card's existence in any other artwork?)

    This is a very odd gx. All up to this point have had 3 attacks or an ability and 2 attacks I think there's gonna be something unique to go with this card.

    • Ultra Necrozma GX - Too underwhelming. For two energy you may do 180-210 enough to KO Lele and Zoroark. But HOW to get Psychic energy back? That is the huge question for Psychic Pokémon right now. We have Lunala Prism but it's a Prism Star. We have Recycler then Max Elixir it back but its clunky TBH. The GX attack is a weak ver. of Necrozma GX, sorry. Is it me that the first time that the GX got only 1 atk? 2-3 Geodudes.
    • Mystery Treasure - 5 Geodudes, period. Hehe. It can search out Lele right off the bat.
    • Inputs - UN seems good with Metagross because Metagross Plays Metal and psychic energy. Tech 1 of these for consistency. Since it discards Psychic Energy to land damage, we only limited to Metagross and Lunala Prism as options. But the factors on Lunala worries me: 1.)Like what I've said, its a Prism Star, and relies on opponent's bench and discard. 2.) 160 HP is a Big excuse for Lunala to be great. If you make a Speed UN deck, it won't last, considering we have the embarrassing dual-energy attack cost like Dragon-type does. I hope they continue the trend they started in ULP

    Lunala is a prism star, that is a huge problem

    Nevertheless it can reattach a considerable number of Basic Psychic Energy and we also have other means such as Silvally GX and Rayquaza to retrieve discarded Basic Energy.

    Regarding the GX attack: Keep in mind that the damage counter placement is not limited to Pokémon GX.

    need English translation to be sure but first attack combined with Gardevoir NXD in Expanded could hit for 180 (210 with choice band) turn 2 onward pretty consistently.
