New Deoxys, ‘Return Label’ Gym Promos in Japan!

A brand new Deoxys and “Return Label” promo will be one of the seven promo cards players receive at Japan’s upcoming Gym tournaments. Mr. Mime-GX is also new, but was previously revealed.

Heatran is an alternate art promo that was already released overseas as one of the Ultra Prism prerelease promos, so this will be the first time Japan is getting it. The rest of the cards are alternate art reprints from SM7.

 

Update (11:00 AM): We now have a clearer image of Return Label, it actually returns the card to the bottom of their deck, not the top.

Deoxys – Psychic – HP110
Basic Pokemon

Ability: Power Suction
Once during your turn (before your attack), you may move an Energy from 1 of your Pokemon to 1 of your Deoxys.

[P][P][C] Psycho Boost: 100 damage. During your next turn, this Pokemon’s Psycho Boost’s base damage is 50.

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

(So this is why Deoxys Normal Forme isn’t in SM7, but its other three formes are.)


Return Label – Trainer
Item

Choose 1 card from your opponent’s discard pile. Your opponent puts that card on the bottom of their deck.

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

Thanks goes to Michael S. for the translations!

    Written Label can be really good for forcing worthless dead draws. That card is actually super good.

    Just got this brought up by someone... Wouldn't "Return Label" be a better translation? Based on the japanese name, and the fact that it does return something to where it initially was? :p

    • Normal Deoxys - the only Deoxys form that it seems pretty good is the Attack Deoxys. Others were not Interested. 3 Geodudes
    • Return Label - In Night March, play Karen. In Standard, don't use it in order to give advantage to your opponent. 2 Geodudes

    Sableye / Garb + Trick Shovel + Return Label

    Use Puzzle of Time to constantly reuse Trick Shovel and Return Label.

    I don’t want to win. I just want to be as inconvenient as possible.

    a 2 attack, 2 normal deoxys line combined with malamar could be interesting

    malamar attaches energy from discard, normal moves energy to active deoxys to hit consistently for 120, likely not first tier as it 2 shots stage 2s and gx but its an easy tech for psychic decks

    Return label might see some use in expanded, not just against night march because obviously there are better options against that. VS seeker means that people tend to run pretty low supporter counts, so doing something like tossing a compressor'd Guzma back into their deck can prevent a bench KO, for example.
