All XY11 ‘Explosive Fighter’ and ‘Cruel Traitor’ Translations!!!

Magearna TCG ArtWe received word today that the official Pokemon Card website would be posting all of XY11’s card images a week early — and they did! This decision was made because XY11 is coming out only three days before Japan’s Nationals where it will be legal for play. This is a one-time early reveal so players can study the cards.

XY11 Explosive Fighter and Cruel Traitor will be released in Japan next Friday, June 17th, to promote the Volcanion and the Mechanical Magearna movie, which will play in theaters on July 16th. The set will then be released in America on August 3rd as Steam Siege. It will be legal for Worlds as well.

Shiny Mega Steelix TCG ArtThe seven Pokemon BREAK in the set are Yanmega BREAK, Clawitzer BREAK, Hydreigon BREAK, Talonflame BREAK, Pyroar BREAK, Xerneas BREAK, and Yveltal BREAK. The six Pokemon-EX are Steelix-EX, M Steelix-EX, Magearna-EX, Gardevoir-EX, M Gardevoir-EX, and Volcanion-EX.

The eight dual-type Pokemon are Volcanion-EX (Fire/Water), M Gardevoir-EX (Fairy/Psychic), M Steelix-EX (Metal/Fighting), Bisharp (Darkness/Metal), Azumarill (Fairy/Water), Shiftry (Darkness/Grass), Galvantula (Grass/Lightning), and Volcarona (Grass/Fire).

Note that no full art images or secret rares were released, so other than Pokemon Ranger, we have to wait until next week to see the rest. As usual, a huge thanks goes to our translation team for all of their hard work: Sean T., Michael S.,  Jake C., Hannes S., Vincent, Franco T., Bangiras, and Andrew C.

Explosive Fighter

Corrections: Clawitzer BREAK allows any Active Pokemon to have increased damage when attacking your opponent’s Active Pokemon, not just Clawitzer BREAK. | Updated Croagunk’s Better Poison. If the Active is Poisoned, they take 30 more damage between turns (40 damage). If you use the attack again, they take 30 more damage again (70 damage). On top of other effects that might change Poison’s default damage. | Fixed Hydreigon’s Ruthless Bite.

    Can be Maxie'd lol

    Eh I wouldn't call it unplayable. It's not at ALL competitive, but with Carbink and Battle Compressor you can attach two DCE. This is different that Groudon because of the colorless energy cost.

    They're drastically overestimating how much being two types affects the power of a card. Weakness is important but like......c'mon.....

    Also wow wait! The set got posted as I said that. No translations though, is that title erroneous?

    On one hand, Carbink BREAK can throw 2 DCEs onto M Steelix, but on the other hand, Carbink can throw that many Strong Energies onto M Aerodactyl to do nearly the same exact thing for 2 less energy.
    I'm kinda bummed out because I love Mega Steelix, but M Aggron and M Aerodactyl both do what it does way more efficiently :(

    EDIT: Is that an Infernape that does 200 damage I see????

  5. I didn't say I'd use it; I meant that between the normal EX's 5 energy attack and the Mega's 5 energy attack, I'd prefer the 100xHeads one. :p

    Mega Steelix looks like a glorified Dialga-EX. It can take advantage of Fighting-type buffs while metal energy is easily recycable with Bronzong. Dialga-EX was a good deck in the day, and it probably recycled far more than M-Steelix would need.

    Gifs! I really like that shining effect! o_o Also we actually have good scans of every card. Nice!

    Dual type Volcarona! Awesome, I really hope it's playable. Also Infernape seems to have a very powerful attack. I was really hoping for translations when I scrolled to the bottom :/
     
  10. Wait, what???

    Infernape can do 200 for two energy!!

    What's the catch?...

    This card is pretty good. I say enough of all the low energy nuke cards but this is pretty much what I expected from Steelix. Its not a fast Pokemon so 5 energy attack makes sense for it.

    Cant wait for my shiny m/Pidgeot EX full art cards!

    First ATK: Choose 2 Benched opponents Pokemon, 30 damage to each. Don't apply weak and resist.

    Second ATK: Can't read. Some kind of ElekNet something...

    Also besides Infernape, Druddigon also looks like a powerhouse. A 120 HP basic Pokémon that can do 100 damage for a Double Dragon and 1 more (C) energy, plus it has some kind of side effect.

    Nice to see the return of some pokémon like the Shellos line, Shieldon line and Anorith line (unfortunaly, no Cranidos/Rampardos)...

    Mega Steelix looks awesome, but kinda terrible to play...

    Things I called right about this set:
    -No Nidoqueen
    -dual-type Volcarona
    -Klink line
    -2 starter families
    -Druddigon being the only Dragon card in one of the sets (it's easy to fit that one in a set so they can still say they have dragons in it).

    Also, welcome the return of Ken Sugimori stock art cards!

    That Clawitzer is interesting! Could Clawitzer breathe some life back into Mega evolution decks that rely on Specal Energy? M Tyranitar, M Ampharos, M Aggron, M Latios?

    EDIT: I love the irony of Galvantula being a Joltik counter
