Umbreon-EX from XY10 ‘Awakening of the Psychic Kings!’

I will be making a huge PokeBeach New Years announcement tomorrow! If you don’t have a PokeBeach premium subscription, you may want to grab one before then. I hope everyone is having a Happy New Year’s Eve! (Update: I apologize, but technical difficulties have  delayed the announcement. Please stay tuned.)

Umbreon-EX from XY10, Awakening of the Psychic Kings, has just been revealed super early! The card is #042/078. It seems the card was revealed in a magazine, though we have no confirmation where it originates from at this time (update: it’s from a promotional image advertising the new Pokemon TCG Lottery campaign that started at Pokemon Centers today). Thanks goes to @kaede_poke from Twitter for sharing the image!

XY10 set will be released in Japan on March 18th. Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translation!

    Well then. Any dark deck that doesn't use 1 or 2 or these is just being dumb. The potential of getting 4 prizes when Mega decks are pretty popular is insane.

    Oh, dear God! o_O What the actual hell?! This card was totally innecessary, but is cool nonetheless. I'm guessing Crobat and Faded Town will make this a rather interesting deck, IMO.

    Because dark decks totally needed more power! Because Yveltal/Zoroark/Gallade totally isn't one of the top decks right now.

    I wouldn't call this the end of megas. With Empoleon and a Muscle Band you can hit 110 which will 2hko some megas, but I can't see this guy getting too many KOs unless you build your deck around him. Maybe some Energy Switch shenanigans will help.

    He's also weak to Fighting and has a dreadful 170 HP, which will definitely keep him in check.

    Still, he'll definitely be something to watch out for.

    Oh my gush. Can we get the remaining Eeveelutions as EXs please? I'm sick of TPC releasing just parts of pokemon "sets". For example, not releasing the other two Regis as EXs, not releasing Suicuine EX etc.

    Might be difficult to get into the situation where you can land the knockout, but wow. 4 prizes!

    Good. Keep those Megas in line. We need more mega counters, more EX counters, more cards like this!

    Lol even more counters to Megas? There aren't any that are broken and they are already kept in check. To weaken them even more just encourages more skilless decks like NM or Vespiquen to be played. Megas are slower.

    See? What do people want? When Megas are EXs that evolve yet people hate them. This encourages more Big Basics. So what do people want?

    Don't forget about the new darkrai coming out

    I like the first attack more. It can really help if your in an item lock. Being able to discard your unneeded cards for possibly better ones. Of course you would go through your deck faster, but the potential is real.

    Got outsmarted by a stupid pokemon EX that shouldnt exist
     
  14. I think Umbreon will also be good in Fire decks as an opener. For [C] it can get a bunch of Fire energy in the discard for ol' Blacksmith.

    Looking forward to seeing the FA!

    Sounds like the announcement is gonna be a price increase on the Premium subscription haha.

    Umbreon + Yveltal EX = maybe decent, esp with Zoroark or Darkrai EX (Dark Cloak, in expanded)

    Arguably the best mega's right now are Rayquaza and Manetric. While 70 damage isn't all that strong against them, the effect is far too aggressive. We need more skillful cards, not cards like this. Its a welcomed edition since the eeveelutions have been turned into gimmicks. I would like to see more Dark type support cards.

    Finally a unique card!
     
  18. Now I don't regret making a Machamp/Ariados Deck instead of working more on my MetalRays deck.

    What's the announcement? Unfortunately I won't be able to purchase a subscription because reasons so I guess I'll have to get someone else to tell me :p

    I am just glad that they made this. In expanded I feel it has lots of power, but not all decks run Megas. Maybe this means mega support in this set which was needed. It's first attack is also notable for decks like vespiquen to discard LOTS of pokemon and also get draw support. Makes lots of decks very scary.
