Pyroar and Lysandre Labs from ‘Forbidden Light!’

A new Pyroar and Lysandre Labs Stadium card have been revealed from SM6 Forbidden Light, which will release in Japan on March 2nd and in America on May 4th. Thanks goes to gundambot1 for the translations!

Pyroar – Fire – HP120
Stage 1 – Evolves from Litleo

Ability: Unnerve
Whenever your opponent plays an Item card or Supporter card, prevent all effects of that card done to this Pokemon.

[R][C][C] Dominate Fang: 80+ damage. If Lysandre Labs is in play, this attack does 60 more damage.

Weakness: Water (x2)
Resistance: none

Lysandre Labs – Trainer
Stadium

Pokemon Tools in play have no effect (both yours and your opponent’s).

This card stays in play when you play it. Discard this card if another Stadium card comes into play. If another card with the same name is in play, you can’t play this card.

The box art for Forbidden Light has also been released, revealing that Eevee, Sylveon, Tyrunt, Tyrantrum, and Hawlucha will be in the set.

    Oh dear... now I'm just waiting for a Xerosic Prism star that has a stadium locking effect as long as it's in the lost zone and a GX version of one of their pokemon that recovers supporters from the lost zone...

    Yeah, just disable the choice band on Pyroar with Lysandre Lab.

    Lolololol - Lysandre lab actually is a kiddie playground with tiny walls and spinny tiles.

    Oh wow that stadium is going to be terrible in mill decks... Just disable my float stones and trap my Pokemon as all my deck melts away.

    In the video games, Lysandre Labs is referred in the plural form. And is it supposed to be "Dominant Fang?" "Dang" doesn't make sense in a Pokemon context.

    That being said, while negating tools is nice and all, it stops Pyroar from using its equipped Choice Band.

    Judging by the art styles on the box, I'm guessing that Shibuzoh did Sylveon, Yoshinobu Saito did Tyrantrum, and TOKIYA did Hawlucha.

    A Pyroar with omega barrier is cute. Pretty bad though. Lysandre Labs however, is pretty good.

    Nice attempt to ramp up the power on non-GX Pokemon.

    Lysandre Labs is interesting and can provide a helluva foil against some decks (looking at you, Sableye-Garb).

    That moment when you realize the three types that haven't gotten a unit energy yet are the same types of the three legendary pokemon of Kalos, which is the theme for this set...

    No as it is still technically attached! Unless you field blower/hex ability lock garb still has its ability.

    Based on the placements of Pyroar and the Froakies it looks like the Volcanion is gonna be a Water-type! I love that we are starting to see types for Pokemon that haven't been seen before (Psychic Malamar, Fighting Diancie)!
