Update #3 (8:15 PM) – Added scans and translations of Sewaddle, Pansear, Simisear, Staryu, Starmie, Basculin, Munna, Musharna, Mienfoo, Mienshao, and the full art Shaymin EX below. | Update #2 (1:15 PM) – A shiny Hydreigon is in Psycho Drive as card #057/052. Its scan is below – it is a reprint of the Hydreigon from Red Collection just as Zoroark is a reprint of the Zoroark from Black & White. Does this mean each set will have 57 cards?| Update (10:45 AM) – Added more translations.

A few months ago, Pokemon fans in Japan could send in their information for the chance to win one of 1,000 booster boxes of Psycho Drive, which would be sent to the winners several days before the set’s general release. The booster boxes arrived to the winners several hours ago and thus many auction sites are posting scans of Psycho Drive cards early! We will probably have all of Hail Blizzard and Psycho Drive‘s card scans and translations tomorrow or the day after, so be sure to keep checking back!

A huge thanks goes to forum mod Viper.Fox for collecting all the images below and Bangiras for translating the cards as usual! We had most of these cards translated last night but wanted to hold off posting them because we thought the rest of the cards would leak (and after waiting until sunrise, we gave up and took naps). Since it doesn’t seem anymore major leaks will be happening today, we’re posting all the leaked cards now.

The Pokemon EX in Hail Blizzard are Kyurem, Regigigas, and Groudon; the secret rare is unknown but is a shiny Pokemon. Psycho Drive‘s Pokemon EX are Mewtwo, Kyogre, and Shaymin; the secret rare is a shiny Zoroark. ALL of the EX Pokemon have full art versions, which means each set has 56 cards.

(Partial translations because some of the scans are too blurry or small to read.)

  • Gardevoir’s Psycho Mirage Ability: As long as this Pokemon is in play, each Basic Psychic Energy attached to your Psychic-type Pokemon counts as 2 Psychic Energy (this effect doesn’t stack).
  • The Special Energy above is called Prism Energy and is a Rainbow Energy when attached to a Basic Pokemon. When attached to anything else, it’s just a [C].
  • We think Level Ball searches for Pokemon with 50 or less HP.
  • There is a Tool where when a Pokemon is Knocked Out, you move 1 of its basic Energy to another Pokemon with the same Tool.
