    Eight more Team Aqua and Team Magma cards from Double Crisis have been revealed by the official Japanese Pokemon Card website! Translations are below thanks to Mia V., Franco T., and Yohei, though they may be slightly inaccurate due to the extremely small text.

    Team Magma’s Claydol’s Ability is an updated version of the original card, and Team Aqua’s Hideout appears to be a modern reprint of the original as well. And of course Kyogre and Groudon both have a similar Power Saver Ability as the original non-EX cards.

    Team Magma's Camerupt

    Team Magma’s Camerupt – Fire – HP110
    Stage 1 – Evolves from Team Magma’s Numel

    Pokemon Tool: Attach a Pokemon Tool to 1 of your Pokemon that doesn’t already have a Pokemon Tool attached to it.

    Your Pokemon with Team Magma in its name that this card is attached to can also use the attack on this card. (You still need the necessary Energy to use this attack.)

    [F] Magma Pointer: This attack does 20 damage to one of your opponent’s Pokemon. (Don’t apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokemon.)

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

    Additionally, those who purchase five packs of Double Crisis from Pokemon Center stores starting January 31st will receive either a holo Team Magma Grunt or Team Aqua Grunt promo card. Both cards are way too small to read.

    Flygon-EX and Lanturn will be two of twelve promos given out at Japanese Gym Challenge tournaments from February to April. The cards will come inside a promo booster pack. Flygon-EX is currently too small to translate, but we’ll of course have its scan and translation next month. Flygon-EX will likely be released in America in a promo product within the next few months. Thanks goes to Mia V. for the translation!

    Double Crisis Booster Pack

    We have received additional exclusive photos of CoroCoro magazine and some further Double Crisis information ahead of the official Pokemon Card website’s update! The card translations are below thanks to Bangiras!

    The Team Aqua and Team Magma cards in this set will be marked with the team’s logo in the background of the card. The image of the character who owns the Pokemon is also in the bottom-right corner of the card, being Grunts in the cases of Sharpedo and Camerupt. Perhaps admins like Matt and Tabitha will own some of the Pokemon in the set as well?

    It appears Team Aqua’s Kyogre-EX is #006/034 and Team Magma’s Groudon-EX is #015/034, meaning they are not secret rares. The clearer images also confirms their translations from our last news story.

    Double Crisis will feature 34 cards and comes in 6-card booster packs with one guaranteed holo in each pack.

    Team Aqua's Sharpedo from Double Crisis

    Team Aqua’s Sharpedo – Darkness – HP90

    Weakness: Lightning (x2)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 0


    Team Magma's Camerupt from Double Crisis

    Team Magma’s Camerupt – Fire – HP110
    Stage 1 – Evolves from Team Magma’s Numel

    Ability: Burndraft
    Once during your turn (before your attack), you may choose 1 [R] or [D] Energy card from your discard pile and attach it to this Pokemon.

    Pokemon.com has officially revealed Hoopa and its Ken Sugimori artwork! However, no distribution details have been announced yet. As we’ve covered news about Hoopa since last year, there aren’t any new details we don’t already know about.

    Pokemon Shuffle

    Today’s Nintendo Direct has announced that a new Pokemon puzzle game akin to Pokemon Battle Trozei will be released in the 3DS eShop this February: Pokemon Shuffle.

    In the game you shuffle Pokemon tiles around to match and clear them within a certain amount of moves. As you clear a Pokemon’s tiles, they fire attacks at the enemy Pokemon you are facing on the top screen, allowing you to weaken that Pokemon. When you reduce that Pokemon’s HP to 0, you win the round.

    Only four Pokemon are available on the tile screen at any given time and they are your Pokemon. Like the actual games, you can choose which Pokemon to use and they each have a type. To deal the most damage possible within the amount of moves you are given, you should, for example, try to clear Squirtle tiles if you are facing off against a Charmander. As you progress through the game, your Pokemon tiles will level up, evolve, and will also be able to Mega Evolve, allowing you to do even more damage to stronger foes. You can also use various items to help you deal damage more effectively. It’s a puzzle game combined with Pokemon battling, essentially.

    Pokemon Shuffle will be free to play but if you lose you either have to wait 10 minutes to play again or pay, meaning there are in-app purchases. The items will also cost money.

    A Charizard amiibo was also announced for release in North America this spring.

    Update (6:30): The New Nintendo 3DS will be released in Europe and North America February 13th, with America only getting the New Nintendo 3DS XL model. The New Nintendo 3DS in Europe will launch with a new “Nintendo Anime Channel” that features the Pokemon anime. It is unknown how many episodes there will be, but it could be like Pokemon.com and the Pokemon TV app where only a limited selection of episodes are available at any given time.

    We have received photos of CoroCoro magazine, revealing Team Aqua’s Kyogre-EX and Team Magma’s Groudon-EX from Double Crisis!

    Both Pokemon require four Team Aqua or Team Magma Pokemon in play in order to use them, so this means the rest of the Pokemon will be owner’s Pokemon as well. Furthermore, since the star Pokemon-EX of this set are restricted by the Aqua and Magma limitation, it may be an indicator that Double Crisis is an inclusive, “gimmicky” set intended more for collectors than players. The card art further supports this, with Kyogre and Groudon sharing the spotlight with several other Aqua and Magma Pokemon, Matt, Shelly, Tabitha, and Courtney, plus featuring a different art style than usual.

    Thanks goes to Franco T. for the translations below! The 34 card mini-set will be released in Japan on January 30th and in America on March 25th, and we’ll of course have scans and translations before then! Stay tuned!

    Team Aqua's Kyogre-EX from Double Crisis

    Team Aqua’s Kyogre-EX – Water – HP190
    Basic Pokemon

    Ability: Power Saver
    If there are less than 4 Pokemon in play with Team Aqua in their name, this Pokemon can’t attack. (Note: Translation may be inaccurate due to blurry text.)

    [W][W][W][C]: Aqua Impact: 80+ damage. Does 20 more damage for each [C] in your opponent’s Active Pokemon’s Retreat Cost.

    When a Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

    Weakness: Grass (x2)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 4


    Team Magma's Groudon-EX from Double Crisis

    As expected, leaks of CoroCoro have revealed that Hoopa will be joining Primal Kyogre, Primal Groudon, and shiny Mega Rayquaza in movie 18 – the title of the film is The Archdjinn of Rings: Hoopa. The film will premiere in Japanese theaters on July 18th.

    The magazine questions what the “archdjinn” could be. While Hoopa is classified in the video games as the “Mischief Pokemon,” its new form, “Hoopa Unbound,” is classified as the “Djinn Pokemon.” So the movie title is obviously referencing its new form – the “highest” djinn of them all, an “archdjinn,” like an “archangel.” Djinn are supernatural creatures / spirits in Islamic and Arabian mythology – “genies.”

    CoroCoro also reveals that Hoopa likes donuts because of their ring shape, meaning Hoopa is yet another movie Pokemon in love with a certain food (Celebi and berries, Lucario and chocolate, Victini and macrons). Hoopa’s Ken Sugimori artwork was also revealed.

    In gaming news, the magazine reveals that a shiny Rayquaza is to be distributed at Japan’s World Hobby Fair from January 18th to February 8th. It is Level 70 and knows Dragon Pulse, Thunder, Twister, and Extreme Speed. Hopefully we’ll get it overseas too?

    Update (Wednesday, 1/15) – Kingdra is XY39.

    It was probably going to be revealed ahead of prereleases anyway, but another social media leak has revealed that Primal Clash‘s prerelease promo is an alternate artwork version of Ancient Trait Kingdra. We’re not sure what promo number it is.

    Primal Clash prereleases will take place January 24th, 25th, 31st, and February 1st. To find one near you, use Pokemon.com’s event locator. The set’s booster packs will officially be released in stores February 4th.

    Double Crisis Mini-Set

    The logo and official set description for Double Crisis have been revealed! The description confirms that two of the set’s eight holo cards are Kyogre-EX and Groudon-EX, though they may actually be owner’s Pokemon:

    Two teams of villains emerge from their hideouts to clash over the fate of the world in Pokemon TCG: Double Crisis! Team Aqua brings sheer brawn and willpower while Team Magma leverages logic, and both are willing to move land and sea to accomplish their goals. While Team Aqua’s Kyogre-EX rampages against Team Magma’s Groudon-EX, their rival ambitions could change the Hoenn region forever!

    It is unclear if the set’s descriptions means that the cards are literally named “Team Aqua’s Kyogre-EX” and “Team Magma’s Groudon-EX,” as has been the case with sets like EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua, or if the description is just clarifying which team is after which Pokemon and they’re really just named “Kyogre-EX” and “Groudon-EX.” Since the set pits the two teams against each other, it could be the first case. What do you think?

    As we first posted last month, the 28-card Double Crisis mini-set will come in a Team Aqua or Team Magma-themed box. Each box contains a collector’s pin and coin featuring the Team Aqua or Team Magma logo as well as four 7-card Double Crisis booster packs. The boxes will be released on March 25th in stores (though with our luck lately, we could see it several weeks before then :p). The set will first release in Japan on January 30th.

    Hoenn Region's Collector's Album

    After some detective work, we’ve finally solved the mystery! Scans of Primal Clash have been leaking over the past few weeks because the “Hoenn Region’s Collector’s Album” is now available at some Target stores! We’re not sure if the product is being sold early by mistake or if its release was just moved ahead of schedule, especially since product releases tend to vary so wildly. However, at least three people who have contacted us have been able to check them out through Target’s registers, so they’re definitely being sold at at least some of the stores.

    We first announced the Hoenn Region’s Collector’s Album in October. It is a mini-binder that holds 60 cards and comes with one Primal Clash booster pack. It costs $4.99. Unlike the Furious Fists leaks in July where the “Mega Charizard Boxes” that were sold early came with three booster packs of Furious Fists, this leak will probably be much slower since the albums only come with one Primal Clash pack.

    We now have ALL Primal Clash scans with a huge thanks to Bryan’s Toy Haven, Chris H., Michael H., Taylor M., James F., Ethan P., SuperOshawott, Kyle P., Anthony P., Jose F., Anstett E., Zach G., Harry P., Bryan H., Shayne K., Chris H., TheHipHoppip, WaterAndGrass, Allproductssoldhere, and TeamPV!

    Update (1/1/2015, 5:30 PM): And now Trevenant-EX’s full art has leaked online from a different person, as you can see below. It’s #145/160. I wonder how these leaks keep happening and if the product is available early somewhere.

    Continuing the early leaks of Primal Clash, today English scans of Camerupt-EX (#29/160), Sharpedo-EX, and M Gardevoir-EX (#156/160) were leaked to the net by yet another person who somehow managed to get the cards early. Last month, Wailord-EX, Trevenant-EX, and M Aggron-EX were revealed before Gaia Volcano and Tidal Storm were even released, followed by Whiscash. Primal Clash will be released in the United States on February 4th while prereleases will take place the two weekends prior.

    Merry Christmas Eve! Hopefully the child with blood red eyes won’t stop me from delivering my super late Christmas present to you guys next month…

    Both the “Mega Diancie-EX Premium Collection” and “Gallade-EX Box” are now available early at some Target stores for you late Christmas shoppers (presumably Gallade is marketed toward boys and Diancie toward girls).

    Diancie’s box comes with a holo M Diancie-EX promo (XY44), a jumbo version of the same card, a holo Diancie-EX promo (XY43), a “brilliant and shining” Mega Diancie collector’s pin, six booster packs, and a Mega Diancie coin. It costs $39.99.

    Gallade’s box comes with a holo Gallade-EX promo (XY45), a jumbo version, and four booster packs. It costs $19.99.

    A huge thanks goes to PkmnEvolutionaries and JR Madison for sending us all the photos below!

    We can now exclusively reveal three upcoming products for spring 2015!

    On March 25th, the Japanese Team Magma vs. Team Aqua Double Crisis mini-set will be released in America as two box sets called Double Crisis: Aqua vs. Magma. Each box, themed after one of the two teams, will include four Double Crisis 7-card booster packs and a collector’s pin featuring either the Team Aqua or Team Magma logo. The Double Crisis mini-set itself will consist of 28 cards in total, including 8 holo cards.

    In addition to the Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre Collections on March 4th, releasing on March 19th are a “Groudon Box Set” and a “Kyogre Box Set.” Each package will feature a jumbo card and holo card of one of the two Pokemon. Three booster packs will also be included.

    Lastly, on April 29th, a “Latios and Latias Trainer Kit” will also hit store shelves and will feature holos of the two Pokemon in two 30-card decks. The package will come with a how-to-play guide, a playmat, a deck box, damage counters, a coin, and a TCG Online code card. The original EX Trainer Kits from 2004 featured Latios and Latias, so this is a cool callback to the Ruby and Sapphire era that the TCG is once again in.
