Shining Genesect and Ivysaur from ‘Shining Legends!’

We now have exclusive images of the last two remaining cards from Shining Legends (spare secret rares).

We’ll post the missing secret rares later this week. Shining Legends will officially hit store shelves in Japan on Saturday and in America on October 4th.

To see the rest of the set, you can check out our news story from last week.

Shining Genesect – Grass – HP130
Basic Pokemon

Ability: Energy Reload
Once during your turn (before your attack), you may move a [G] Energy from 1 of your Pokemon to this Pokemon.

[C][C][C] Gaia Blaster: 50+ damage. This attack does 20 more damage for each [G] Energy attached to this Pokemon.

Weakness: Fire (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2

Ivysaur – Grass – HP100
Stage 1 – Evolves from Bulbasaur

[G][C] Razor Leaf: 30 damage.

[G][G][C][C] Noxious Whip: 50 damage. Your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Poisoned and Confused.

Weakness: Fire (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 4

Shining Genesect’s artwork reminds me of Shining Kabutops’s from Neo Destiny, but both cards were illustrated by two different people. Perhaps Shining Genesect is paying homage to Shining Kabutops? The rocks in the corner, the sunset, and the clouds are all extremely similar!

This Ivysaur has the highest HP and retreat cost of any Ivysaur ever. Venusaur had the same amount of HP in Base Set. Power creep! However, Ivysaur has double the retreat of Base Set Venusaur.

Thanks goes to Rhonda D. and Jake C. for the translations!
