Slowbro from ‘Rage of the Broken Sky’

The Japanese Pokemon Twitter account has revealed Slowbro from Rage of the Broken Sky. Thanks goes to Jake C. for the translation!

Slowbro XY9Slowbro – Water – HP100
Stage 1 – Evolves from Slowpoke

[W] Careless Hand: 10+ damage. Flip a coin. If heads, this attack does 50 more damage.

[C][C][C] Miracle Home Run: When you use this attack, if you have 1 Prize card remaining, you win the game.

Weakness: Grass (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2

We’ve never had an attack like Miracle Home Run before. But running a Slowpoke-Slowbro line in your deck that needs three Energy to pull it off seems gimmicky at best. Unless you use Mew-EX and Dimension Valley or something. But that’s a lot of work for such a specific end-game situation. (And no, I am not trolling with that attack effect this time – it’s real.)

Even though Pokemon Centers are running a Mega Evolution campaign when this set is released which includes a Pikachu plush wearing a Mega Slowbro costume, we won’t be getting a Slowbro-EX and M Slowbro-EX in this set. And it seems Pokemon BREAK aren’t meant for Pokemon that have Mega Evolutions. So I guess they’re saving Slowbro-EX and M Slowbro-EX for Slowbro’s next appearance in the TCG.
