Drapion LV.X, Porygon-Z, Gliscor ‘IFDS’ Promos

EDIT: Added a better-quality scan of Drapion LV.X thanks to Brianjapan.

I am going to have to delay the next batch of Legends Awakened scans until tomorrow. Since I knew I was going to be home all day and can’t go to Worlds because of the expense [which I’m very bummed about, since I was orignally going to go and it was supposed to be the highlight of my summer :(], I spent most of the day organizing all of my cards and pulling out cards for the next format. I also spent most of the latter part of the day fixing the forums, as many of you probably noticed, so that sucked up a lot of time as well. I’ll make up for it tomorrow – I don’t want to stay up super late again editing scans, so just wait another day. ;) I didn’t get to work on my school report today either! Ahh!

Wow, I can’t believe I missed such important promo news. Bangiras told me about it last month, but I completely forgot to post it.

The visual book promo for Intense Fight in the Destroyed Sky is Drapion LV.X. A visual book is basically a book of card scans for the latest Japanese set, and they always come with a LV.X that winds up being reprinted in the set after the book’s release. Thus, Drapion LV.X will probably be released in the next Japanese set, just as Lucario LV.X, Garchomp LV.X, Porygon-Z LV.X, and Heatran LV.X were. Brianjapan from eBay was able to obtain the visual book before its release date of August 6th and scanned the card. Click the thumbnail below for a larger scan. Bangiras has also translated the card (which she sent to me last week, though for this excuse, it was buried under a pile of emails containing Legends Awakened scans, so I missed it).

While we’re on the topic of promos and “forgotten / missed” promo cards, we reported before Intense Fight in the Destroyed Sky was released that a new Porygon-Z and Gliscor would be released in two “IFDS” blister packs. Bangiras has also translated those two new cards:

Porygon-Z PromoPorygon Z L.56 – Colorless – HP120
Stage 2 – Evolves from Porygon 2

Poke-Power: Install
You can use this Power any number of times during your turn. Move 1 Technical Machine card attached to one of your Pokemon to 1 of your other Pokemon. This Power can’t be used if this Pokemon is affected by a Special Condition.

[.] Running: Search your deck for a Pokemon LV.X card that Levels Up from 1 of your Pokemon, and play it on top of that Pokemon to Level it Up. Shuffle your deck afterward.
[C][C] Overclock: Does 40 damage + an additional 20 damage x the number of Technical Machines attached to Porygon Z.
