Tapu Bulu, Tapu Fini in ‘Celestial Storm’ One-Pack Blisters!

“Tapu’s assemble!”

The Celestial Storm one-pack blisters will feature holo Tapu Bulu and Tapu Fini promos! (This is following the reveal last month that the three-pack blisters would feature Tapu Lele and Tapu Koko.)

Tapu Bulu fills the old SM61 gap that’s long existed in the Sun & Moon black star promos while Tapu Fini fills SM92. It’s likely TPCi intended both promos to be released a long time ago, as was the case with Tapu Lele. At least now there won’t be gaps in Sun & Moon‘s black star promos (unlike what happened with Black & White‘s promos).

Tapu Bulu, Tapu Fini, and Tapu Lele were released in Japan all the way back in April 2017 in SM2+ Beyond a New Challenge.

    Card Theory: Why are there more Guardians in Celestial Storm than in GUARDIANS Rising? [Insert exposed brains and photoshopped surprised faces in the thumbnail]

    Not really all that useful - perhaps baby bulu in a Tapu Bulu deck as a better option than vikavolt against hoopa/ninetales?

    Could you make a deck around this fini? Throw in 4 lana, some other healing trainer cards, you could even pair it with zoroark or something.

    I mean, I built a functioning deck around Altaria-EX with FFI Jynx and Fairy Drop, with BKT Xerneas as an additional attacker.....

    Ahw man! We don't get this product here in Brazil, only the triple pack.
    I'm doing a carddex with one card of which pokemon, and I don't want to use Pokemon GX or EX.
    Hope we get them some way. :(
    Just missing a few pokemon now.

    Shining Current with the water healing Manaphy could be really fun!

    Sometimes you are not getting damaged every turn. This strat is uninspiring.

    Interesting! Nobody'll play them (unless someone makes a Tapu Box) but they're interesting nonetheless.

    why wait a year to release bad Tapus when baby Koko and Lele are much better.

    It's because it's Guardians RISING. The Guardians are still RISING and therefore not all the Guardians have risen yet.

    So they was rising about a year. I'd say it was a slow start

    Great to finally see all the non-GX Tapus being released. I know it's only 4 Tapus, but it would be great to see some support cards like trainers and energy cards for the Tapus like we got for Ultra Beasts.

    For one, there are plenty of ways to self-damage in Pokémon, besides, any Water type can be healed to activate the damage boost, and second, I’m not sure how not taking damage is ever a negative, even if it lowers your damage output for one turn, if you have no way of self-damage. If the only defense my opponent has (and yes, I know that there are many other defenses obviously) is to not damage me, it doesn’t matter how much damage I can do, because I’m not taking any.

    I mean, I guess you could play baby Bulu in VikaBulu to deal with Hoopa and Ninetails, but I think FAC Mew is by far a better play.
