M Beedrill-EX from ‘Premium Champion Set,’ Other Reprints Confirmed

A new Pokemon Center poster for April 16th’s Premium Champion Set has revealed a new M Beedrill-EX will be in the set! Thanks goes to Sean T. and Bangiras for the translation. As with all cards in the set, M Beedrill-EX is a reverse holo with no specific rarity.

M Beedrill EX CP4M Beedrill-EX – Grass – HP200
Mega Evolution – Evolves from Beedrill-EX

When 1 of your Pokemon becomes a Mega Evolution, your turn ends.

[G][G] Hazard Stinger: 40 damage. Discard all Energy attached to this Pokemon. Your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Paralyzed and Poisoned. Between turns, place 4 damage counters on it instead of 1 for Poison.

When a Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Fire (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 0

The poster also reveals that Battle Compressor, VS Seeker, Seismitoad-EX, M Rayquaza-EX, Primal Groudon-EX, Yveltal-EX, M Mewtwo-EX, Giratina-EX, Shaymin-EX, and Hoopa-EX will be reprinted in the set. I guess my April Fools’ joke wasn’t too far off the mark.

    This card seems ridiculous. So little energy for basically 80 damage and forcing your opponent to waste switching resources..

    I don't have extensive knowladge but I am getting back into the game, how would one constantly recharge Beedrill in succession turns? Seems like it's a victim to Umbreon-EX waiting to happen

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but does this make it certain those reprints are coming to the West as well?

    I thought our next set was going to be the Cruel Traitor + Explosive Fighter to tie in with the Volcanion movie. And that seems like too many reprints to put into tins. If we are getting them, how will we get them?

    Edit: Also M-Beedrill + Sceptile PRC 8/160 (Nurture and Heal) + Energy Retrievals = a pretty intense lock, aided as well by FoGP... as long as you can keep Zoroarks under control

    not sure if mega sceptile mega bedrill will be a deck but will be very intresting in expanded with virbank city gym, maybe this with virizion ex but still suffers the low 200 hp and weak to fire as well...will not be that great since you will have to always discard the energy to use the effect. But if u power up 2 mega beedrill with 1 virzion ex but since everyone plays keldeo in expanded there would be no point. Just a weaker version of deck and cover that is not locking your opponent from rushing in, or simply playing a switch.

    The reprint of Seismatoad and battle compressor is kinda a bummer for standard as battle compressor is what drives night march to be the best deck along with puzzle of time. Why would they reprint mega mewtwo so soon since it has only been 2 sets from its release? I am happy yveltal ex got a reprint though it is broken in expanded with dark patch but as good as seismatoad is in standard.

    They need to make Megas good, what happened to the likes of Manectric being good?

    So much better than I expected. I hope the basic bee is awesome.

    Whelp... This is depressing. The artwork is cool on the bee drill to day the least. It does have special conditions and the free retreat going for it. Maybe dragalgae and mega bee drill? Poison them and they can't retreat to heal paralyze. Does TPCi just want the only decks that preform decently to be toad and night march? They may as well reprint lazerbank, and blastoise

    This was good until Seismitoad.

    Thank you Pokemon TCG Team for reaching the "We are THAT stupid" status.

    The reprints would likely be released in a reprint set, like Legendary Treasures, which will probably be our November set.
    Night March will probably rotate by the time this is out, and we will probably have two more sets before this is released (1 year).
