Rockruff and Lycanroc from ‘Forbidden Light!’

Rockruff and Lycanroc have just been officially revealed from SM6 Forbidden Light. The set will be released in Japan on Friday (March 2nd) and then in America on May 4th. We should have translations of the full set very soon! Thanks goes to Sean T. for the translations.

Rockruff – Fighting – HP70
Basic Pokemon

[F][C] Surprise Attack: 50 damage. Flip a coin. If tails, this attack does nothing.

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


Lycanroc – Fighting – HP120
Stage 1 – Evolves from Rockruff

[F][C] Dangerous Rogue: 20+ damage. This attack does 20 more damage for each of your opponent’s Benched Pokemon.

[F][F][C] Accelerock: 100 damage.

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

Rockruff was first seen in the Japanese livestream that took place last Friday, and Lycanroc has the same text as the previously reported on Champion’s League Promo that players will receive by attending one of the Japanese tournaments of the same name.

    I think it'll be a blister promo if we get it. Prerelease promos tend to have the same artist as the set version of the card.

    Why shouldn't we be getting it? It's in the Japanese set, so it's very likely to be included in the English set as well

    Let's kill them.
    Let's kill them all...

    The feels when Goodra is the only Stage 2 dragon/pseudo-legend to not have an EX/GX printing. This is the fifth vanilla Goodra printing. The only hope now is that dragon-themed set that was hinted at awhile back.

    Also anyone who uses that Rockruff art is an animal abuser.

    I really like the fossils. Tyrantrum has a good ability and Aurorus has a nice first attack. Clearly not the best but still usable.

    I need to build A fossil deck. Quick question would Parallel City help Tyrantrum in any way?
