Omastar BREAK from XY10!

Omastar BREAK from XY10 Awakening of Psychic Kings / Fates Collide has been revealed by the official Japanese Pokemon Twitter account. Thanks goes to Jake C. and Bangiras for the translation!

Omastar BREAK XY10Omastar BREAK – Water – HP140
BREAK Pokemon – Evolves from Omastar

Omastar BREAK retains the attacks, Abilities, Weakness, Resistance, and Retreat Cost of its previous Evolution.

Ability: Dangerous Tentacles
Once during your turn (before your attack), you may choose 1 of your opponent’s Benched Pokemon-EX and switch it with his or her Active Pokemon.

Helix Fossil -> Omanyte -> Omastar -> Omastar BREAK. Ouch.

    This is probably worse then greninja break to get out...but is a free lysandre every turn on opponent's shaymin....might see some play? I take it back....it will clog your deck too much just trying to get this support pokemon into play...archie then maybe...at least we can praise lord helix from #Twitchplayspokemon

    It's been twenty years and omanyte still isn't a basic pokemon? Why?

    4th Water BREAK
    0 Fire / Metal BREAK ... why TCPi why ?

    at least Delphox BREAK is happening ... returning to subject, despite His Helix Lordship, its quite terrible ... unless they give more support for Fossils, maybe reprint Twist Mountain ?

    Of course you can't use Archie to pull BREAK Pokémon. It doesn't seem very playable, but I'm really happy to see Omastar shine, since I love it ;)

    It's definitely not a bad card. Is it going to be in every deck? No. But I could possibly see this being used with Archie. Archie out Omastar, then BREAK evolve the following turn. Maybe in Night March since it already isn't that hard to pull off an Archie T1 or T2.

    This is pretty awesome. Archie decks now have free shaymin lysandres every turn. Although greninja break kinda already had that covered and has a better attacker too.

    For once again we're given powerful mechanics but no support for exploiting this combo. This card is inferior to Pyroar AND is a break evolution = stage 2. AS long as there's no support for stage 2 or break pokemon they're still going to suck.

    Come on TCPi. Like why. You know that this is going to be unplayed, not to mention hard to get off. 1/10 for attempt at something.

    As soon as I saw the Omastar rare I wanted a break card because I feel Omastar is one of the under appreciated or forgotten Pokemon and this definitely makes him or her more noticeable.

    7.8/10 too much water?

    Sadly I don't think this will ever be playable, but the fact lord helix break exists is still cool! :D

    ... why did they even bother?

    Golduck is probably overall more useful in its ability and it is a "Stage 2". Omastar is more than likely going to be weighed down by ridiculously bad fossil mechanics (please please prove me wrong Pokémon Co) and is basically a "Stage 3".

    As for " Gust of Wind" effects Pyroar probably does it better because it's more accessible AND fire decks have amazing energy acceleration, being able to attach 3 (or more!!) per turn. And Pyroar isn't limited to EX Pokémon.

    Omastar BREAK should have been the regular Omastar IMO. The attack could have been WCC for 60 and restoring a Pokémon, with the ability Dangerous Tentacles. Might have been a little "broken" with Archie but you get my point.

    I thought that like Megas, BREAKs would have got good by now. I thought basic BREAKs like Lugia were a step in this direction. Nope! Better luck next time!

    As a side note, I'm hoping this leads to Kabutops BREAK but as usual.... ya never know D:

    Hmmm... There may be potential! There needs to be support (besides Archie's plz) for getting this guy out though. I mean heck, even Fossil Researcher only works on the FFI restored.

    Possibilities:
    • Maybe we get a Fossil Researcher with a reprint / updated text so that it works on all restored. Full Art Fossil Researcher goes from a $2 card to a $20 card. That, or some sort of new supporter along these lines. "If you have a Helix Fossil in your hand, put an Omanyte directly on your bench" maybe?
    • Maybe the Helix Fossil will be easier to play, i.e. "Search your deck for an Omanyte and put it on your bench" rather than the bottom 7 cards nonsense. 'cuz, you know, Helix Fossil has to be better. Or maybe it works something like the old Helix Fossil where it plays as a basic Pokemon itself with an Energy Evolution ability.
    • Maybe Kabutops will be so cool that Archie'ing out Omastar to use its ability to keep churning out Kabutos will be so totally worth it. You know, fighting type, huge damage on small energy investment fighting type kind of cool.
    The biggest mystery:
    • Omanyte hasn't been revealed yet. Maybe it's Basic rather than Restored. (lololol)
    I mean, all of the above is low probability but any one of those would make this playable.

    I wonder on which of the three types this one will focus. Thus far the Break cards seem mediocre at best.
