XY9 Garbodor Revealed at Battle Festa Tournaments

He’s baaaaaaack! This weekend’s Battle Festa tournaments are currently taking place in Japan and Twitter user @aiueoagyo has posted a photo of a “new” Garbodor that was shown on the event’s TV displays. Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translation!

Garbodor XY9Garbodor – Psychic – HP100
Stage 1 – Evolves from Trubbish

Ability: Garbotoxin
If this Pokemon has a Pokemon Tool card attached to it, each Pokemon in play, in each player’s hand, and in each player’s discard pile has no Abilities (except Garbotoxin).

[P][C][C][C] Panic Bomb: 60 damage. Your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Poisoned and Confused. Also, panic.

Weakness: Psychic (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 3

This Garbodor is unusual in that it has the exact same Ability as the most famous Garbodor ever (Garbodor from Dragons Exalted), but it’s not a reprint. It’s not too often, if ever, that new cards of the same Pokemon have the exact same Abilities. Guess PCL loved it that much!
