Naganadel-GX, Ultra Necrozma-GX, Beast Energy Prism Star from English ‘Forbidden Light!’

The first card images from our English Forbidden Light set have been revealed — Naganadel-GX (#56/131), Ultra Necrozma-GX (#95/131), and Beast Energy Prism Star (#117/131)!

The set will release in America and Europe on May 4th. The Japanese version of the set, which also carries the name Forbidden Light, was released in Japan last week as their SM6 set. This is one of the rare times the English set uses the same name as the Japanese set.

Our English set will also contain cards from Japan’s SM5+ Ultra Force set, which was released on January 19th.

    So with Naganadel, would we be allowed to look at our prize cards before shuffling them in or not?

    It doesn't say "look", so no. Think of Stinger as a Rotom Dex that forces a sudden death between both players.

    So... considering the Ultra Necrozma and Beast Energy placements, I'm pretty sure it's not possible for there to be 15 Trainers in this set. The only "negotiable" card I find between 95 and 117 is Beast Ball, but obviously if that's not in the English set, we're sitting at 14 Trainers.

    Naganadel's codename was already established as "Stinger" in its reveal trailer last year:

    Naganadel VS Xurkitree will be a fun matchup! But Naganadel will make for some quick games. It'll be a game of guts. Who wants to use their GX attack first. I predict Xurkitree for the win!

    I think ultra necrozma and naganadel will both see a lot of play...naganadel probably with buzzwole cuz it attacks for colorless energy, and UN w/ Malamar and evo new to copy attacks, I seriously think both can compete with zoroarks recent dominance!

    I'm one happy camper. It's a shame that Ultra Necrozma would make you discard Beast Energy when you attack, though. Ah well, it's still pretty strong.

    So wait, Naganadel GX can basically use a Zoroark attack for free in expanded? (with Dimension Valley) ... uhm, busted much???

    Ultra Necrozma GX only discards Basic Psychic Energy. This means that both Beast Energy and Unit Energy will remain attached.

    Welp, I'm blind. I literally read the two one after the other and still made that mistake. Whoops.

    Hey, that means you could Photon Geyser for 20 damage. Not particularly useful, but kinda fun to imagine this massive Ultra Beast that can easily hit one-shots doing 20 damage with the exact same attack.

    Which is why nobody should be using unit or rainbow energy with it it's completely pointless

    If it doesn't say so, I doubt it. As you'd know your prizes.

    there is the possibility of some of the good and cool looking Ultra Force cards not being included in the english Forbidden light set. Because of this, i am going to search and get Ultra Force and Forbidden Light at SakuraCon. How? because i have seen the japanese card sets of X&Y in the exhibition hall in 2016. But was too stupid not to get any. I want Ultra Recon Squad to be in the english set of Forbidden Light. If not, im getting the japanese set(s). Or hope to find them at the Convention.
