Escape Board from SM5!

A new Pokemon Tool has been revealed from SM5 Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! The set will release in Japan on December 8th. Thanks goes to Jake C. and Michael S. for the translation!

Escape Board – Trainer
Item

Attach a Pokemon Tool to 1 of your Pokemon that doesn’t already have a Pokemon Tool attached to it.

The Retreat Cost of the Pokemon this Tool is attached to is [C] less. This Pokemon may retreat while Asleep or Paralyzed.

You may play as many Item cards as you like during your turn (before your attack).

I wouldn’t want to be riding a rocket-powered skateboard while asleep or paralyzed. :x

    escape board... haven't seen a huge amount of asleep/paralyze decks lately but since float stone will rotate next year at least we get a somewhat useful replacement.

    Whenever someone uses this card, I demand that they also have a finger board placed underneath their cards so it can skate back onto the bench.

    moving away from cost-free effects is a good decision and this card is a great float stone re-design.

    In all seriousness, it's a pretty good card. Can't wait for the undoubted SECRET RARE!

    200 + 30 from choice band is super solid math. It kos nearly everything and with a spread from Koko you are in position to KO anything and everything. I think the deck might run like 2-3 elixir as funny as it seems in order to try and get a backup attacker powered up more quickly. Because of lucario its not as hard to continue setting up attackers. With a few elixir you can effectively outpace what few remaining gardy still exist once this set is out and helps you vs nearly everything else as well. Could even run 4 choice + 1 devoured field as an alternative card to choice band since hitting for 210 is super solid with zoroark-goli and silvally running around

    It's forced synergy, but it's finally a dragon card that isn't garbage.

    if we compare it to float stone (we got time till rotation) then this card doesnt worth it cuz:
    1.we all use guzma
    2.zoroark gx is played in alot of decks and so is bkp zoroark with float stone that can just ignore those effects
    3.we will get the "dawn wings necrozma gx" which is like the zoroark i mentioned above but on a basic! which renders all of the speicel conditions useless against them.
    in short: we have so many other way to get around paralyze/asleep actives that till float stone rotates out, this is just bad
    1/5 from me and i doubt it will ever see play in the near future

    Well I was thinking of playing Heatmor/ Raichu/ Fliptini when Greninja rotated out.
    I'm still extremely salty that Heatmor/ Raichu/ Fliptini didn't place higher in the European internationals, all because it got paired against Greninja. (who thought giving it an attack which turns off abilities was a good idea).

    Now I see this card that could potentially replace float stone but also sparkling robe as well by being able to retreat when paralysed and asleep.

    Why can't you let us win one tournament with a paralyse locking deck, Pokemon! man this sucks.
