Latias Prism Star, Celesteela, Kartana, and Sceptile from SM7 Revealed!

SM7 Charisma of the Wrecked Sky has now been officially revealed! Thanks goes to Bangiras, Sean T., and Jake C. for the translations! The set will release in Japan on June 1st and will then be included in our Celestial Storm set in August.

Update (9:57 PM): I missed Sky Pillar, it’s a powerful new Stadium! Translation added below! Also make sure to re-read the translations if you were here earlier, as they changed while the story was developing.

Sceptile – Grass – HP140
Stage 2 – Evolves from Grovyle

Ability: Nature Power
Each of your Pokemon with [G] Energy attached receives no damage from the attacks of your opponent’s Ultra Beasts.

[G] Powerful Storm: 20x damage. This attack does 20 damage times the number of Energy attached to your Pokemon in play.

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


Celesteela – Metal – HP140
Basic Pokemon (Ultra Beast)

[M][C][C][C][C] Moonraker: 160 damage. If the total of both players’ remaining Prize cards is 6, this attack’s cost is [M].

Weakness: Lightning (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 4

(Is that attack name a James Bond reference?)


Kartana – Metal – HP60
Basic Pokemon (Ultra Beast)

[M][M] Kamikaze: 40+ damage. If your opponent has 6 Prize cards remaining, this attack does 90 more damage.

Weakness: Fire (x2)
Resistance: Psychic (-20)

(That attack name will definitely not be named “Kamikaze” in English.)


Stakataka-GX – Metal – HP180
Basic Pokemon (Ultra Beast)

Ability: Ultra Wall
Any damage done to your Ultra Beasts by an opponent’s attack is reduced by 10 (after applying Weakness and Resistance).

[M][M][C] Gigaton Stamp: 120 damage.

[M][M][C] Assembly GX: 50+ damage. This attack does 50 more damage for each Prize card you have taken. (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: Fire (x2)
Resistance: Psychic (-20)
Retreat: 3


Latias Prism Star – Dragon – HP130
Basic Pokemon

You can’t have more than 1 Prism Star card with the same name in your deck. If a Prism Star card would go to the discard pile, put it in the Lost Zone instead.

[C] Dream Mist: 30 damage. Attach a basic Energy card from your discard pile to each of your Benched Basic [N] Pokemon.

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


Rayquaza-GX – Dragon – HP180
Basic Pokemon

Ability: Storm and Stress
When you play this Pokemon from your hand onto your Bench during your turn, you may discard the top 3 cards of your deck. Then, attach a basic Energy card from your discard pile to this Pokemon.

[G][L][C] Dragon Break: 30x damage. This attack does 30 damage times the number of basic [G] and [L] Energy attached to your Pokemon in play.

[G] Tempest GX: Discard your hand, then draw 10 cards. (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: 3


Sky Pillar – Trainer
Stadium

All Benched Pokemon (both yours and your opponent’s) aren’t affected by damage or effects from the attacks of an opponent’s Pokemon.

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 following card sleeves will release in Japan in June. The Rayquaza slevees will be sold at stores nationwide, the Steven sleeves will only be for sale at Gym tournaments, and the [email protected] sleeves will be sold at Pokemon Centers.

    At first I thought kartana had cut a stackatacka I half but it's just a building lame

    Hmmm...sceptile could definitely see some use. An energy based attack and no damage from ultra beasts? Worth testing out I would think. That dragon acceleration is enticing too, especially with dragonite gx and such...

    On the other hand, kartana looks like a one time use, and celesteela...the cost is big, and even if you can do 160 for 2 dce at the start of the game, still would take at least 2 turns to set up, which means if the opponent can get a prize during that set up time, it's back to 5 energy cost. Interesting to see how these cards will be received though.

    Well, Dragon is broken. Also, hello, Vikavolt, Rayquaza GX, and Sceptile.

    Not feeling the Sceptile, honestly.
    Stage2 that needs set-up to do damge; very slow.
    It's ability is easy to play around.
    ex. You can just use Mew to attack instead.

    Latias seems useful; obvious synergy with Ray.
    I do like how it's attack is colorless, meaning it can be used in any Dragon deck.
    Very nice!

    It doesn't reduce the attack cost by one metal energy, it reduces the entire attack cost to just a single metal energy

    Latias isn't doing a great job at making Rayquaza look enticing. Once Elixir rotates, it's bad. But it also loses to everything relevant to the current meta. Reprint Elixir and we'll talk.

    If Celesteela had a bit of a lower attack cost, it might be good. But nope. If the attack did 200 damage, then maybe it would be worth it, but Celesteela does as much damage as Goodra.

    “Storm and Stress?” What happened to Angry Gale? That was so much better.

    Yup, yup~
    One attachment + CB...
    Good for a knock out vs Buzzwole/Ultra Necrozma/Dusk Mane/etc
    Might see play.

    Though, now that the translation has been updated, not sure if it's better or worse.
    6 is a common number here...

    1 and 5
    2 and 4
    3 and 3

    As opposed to the one-hit wonder; this could be a quality revenge killer!

    An angry site reader named Gale didn't appreciate the name.

    Kartana would have been great with just an M cost but MM is a big investment for a card that won't be useful at all after the first few turns. Celesteela could definitely see play as a one of in metal, 4-2 split is pretty common and one metal and a band for 190 is pretty impressive any way you cut it.

    Sceptile will be low-end playable but has no real answer against Zoroark. Every potential partner I see is either a stage 1 or 2, consistency will be very low for a mediocre attack. The ability is really good though.

    Latias might make Rayquaza look good if it was either attaching from the deck, or wasn't a prism star. As is you run a big risk of either prizing it due to it being a mandatory one of or accidentally discarding it with Rayquaza's ability.

    The biggest thing is, Ray discards the top 3 cards, but only lets you attach 1 energy.
    So, Latias could accelerate the straggling energy.

    I feel Ray's biggest strength is similar to Turbo Darkrai, where all your attackers accelerate simultaneously.
    Honestly, because Ray doesn't need the energy attached to itself, you could actually use beast ring...
    With that said, I don't think it's a deck I'd play.

    2 Stage 2s, no!

    • Sceptile - Well the teaser is all worth it. Immune to UBs like UN, DMN, and Buzzwole. Plus a very worthy atk for 1 energy.
    • My conversation between me and a youngster:
    Youngster: Oh! Sceptile is good, can I pair it with Venusaur, Rhyperior?
    Me: No.
    Youngster: I'll run 1-1-1 of these. You only need 1 in play.
    Me: No. What if one of them is prized?
    Youngster: Ugh?! I'll run Gladion.
    Me: Still No.
    • My score? 4 Geodudes
    • Kartana - 130 for 2 wherein you can attach it with Beast Ring in one go, plus 60 HP? That's an insult. Why Kartana didn't have higher HP? 3 Geodudes
    • Celesteela - To someone say that it will see play. Yes, but not as great as you expect. How will you KO big UB GXs for 4 energy if the effect is active and a CB? How? Still an expensive one. Just run Turtonator, use Bright Flame, attach a CB and OHKO those GXs. 3 Geodudes
    • Latias * - Now I am thinking on the corner and wondering what starter do I use, a MopHead elder dragon that deal 20 and attaches energy to N mon but not a ☆, or a Red Female Jet plane which is a ☆ but accels energy greatly which is like Baby Volcanion, #HeyNick!, but you cannot retrieve it back. In speaking of that, pls. Clarify the atk effect of Latias *. It is like Volcanion before. It should be: "For each of your benched Basic N Pokémon, attach a Basic energy from your discard to that Pokémon" 4 Geodudes
    • Sky Pillar - Sky Pillar = Mountain Ring, period. 2-3 Geodudes
