Unown and M Tyranitar-EX Revealed from ‘Bandit Ring?’

Bandit Ring Poster Unown Bandit Ring

A new commercial for Bandit Ring has revealed an Unown. The commercial also has a Bandit Ring poster in the background, but it’s blurry.

If you look closely at the poster, it shows three Pokemon-EX. The one at the top is the previously revealed Machamp-EX. The very small one in the bottom right corner is Hoopa-EX. But the largest one under Hoopa Unbound’s jaw appears to be a Mega Evolution, perhaps M Tyranitar-EX? I can’t say for sure – what do you think it is?

We will probably have a clearer photo of the poster once it goes up at Pokemon Centers, so stay tuned! New Pokemon-EX are on the way!

(I guess since Japan is doing another live action TCG commercial, we’re going to get one of these ’90s CG commercials for our Ancient Origins commercial in America. :p)

    I can only recognize Tyranitar but it's definitely the Mega, because of the attack name being all over the card and those sparks in the artwork we usually see on Megas... And it's a Dark-type, it seems...

    Definitely a Dark-type Mega Tyranitar EX confirmed! As for the Electric-type blurred card, it looks like an Ampharos, not sure if regular or Mega.

    I'm pretty sure that his opponent has the new Kyurem EX and what looks like regice on the bench.

    Oh yes, I forgot it was Pokémon's job to answer our prayers :p

    I'm super happy with how this set is going! We wanted a Tyranitar, we're getting one. Same for Unown! Though, I wish the Tyranitar-EX was Fighting, just for a change.

    Unown seems to have some sort of ability, as well as an attack for 10 damage, which I assume is for [P]. Now we just need an Ampharos-EX :D

    If it's anything other than Hidden Power I'll figuratively eat my hat

    It looks like Hidden Power, judging from the パワー that is visible on the card :p

    Wow, that commercial just explained the XY on Colorless Mega Rayquaza deck. XD

    Man, I really want to go to one of these Japanese card stores where they have what seems like 100s of cards up on the wall.

    Wow. This set is getting better by the day. Good work Nintendo. Lowering the expectation by putting Lugia Ex en Kyurem ex in the set and then BAM! Three awesome Mega Pokemon and Unown. So nice to get that old Pokemon feeling back again. XY is by far my favorite generation (DPPt is my least favorite) and Ancient Origins could be my favorite XY set (FlashFire was the worst). I hope we get a batter N replacement than Ace Trainer.

    Oh, wait a minute!
    The background of the Ace Trainer card is the end of Victory Road in Hoenn.
    Does that mean that XY8 will focus on the Hoenn Elite 4 or we might move back to Kalos Again... (The XY sets left Kalos after Phantom Forces). There is still so much to explore and we are still waiting for the introduction of Zygrade in the TCG, but that may not happen until Pokemon Z wil be released...

    ...as if Mega Rayquaza-EX wasn't already broken, now we have a video of the card in action with Hoopa, and it's gonna wreck everything.

    What a convincing win :p Too bad it never happens in real life >.< But like I said variety is what the game needs. Equally powered decks that are up to how good the player is with them. The game needs skill, not decks that everyone can play with. *cough* seismitoad *cough*


    p.s. it looks like unown will have a good effect... I guess we'll just have to wait and see...

    I love those japanese live actions commercials. Especially the frustrated opponent after the "EMERALD BREAK!" announcement. lol

    That said, I really hope we don't get another like that Roaring Skies CG one.

    10 bucks says it's a reprint of Unown-Z's ability from Secret Wonders
