First English ‘Ultra Prism’ Cards, Set Wallpapers, ETB Contents!

Lunala Prism Star (#62/156) and Super Boost Energy Prism Star (#136/156) have been revealed from Ultra Prism, our English equivalent of Japan’s SM5 Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon set which was just released last week.

 

The English press release gives us an explanation for why the set is Sinnoh-themed: “Echoing the story line from the recently released video games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, this latest Pokémon TCG expansion is set in an alternate version of Sinnoh, one of the twisted parallel regions that players can reach by traveling through an Ultra Wormhole.”

Here’s some high quality artwork of the set’s booster pack images. You can use them as wallpapers!

Ultra Prism will release in America and Europe on Friday, February 2nd.

    Super Boost Energy might just the thing that brings heavy cost attackers back. Hell yes.

    Getting excited with more news about this set. Super Boost Energy will be interesting in future play. Though only one is used and is put in the Lost Zone after being discarded. Better hope Enhanced Hammer doesn't destroy it.

    Side Note: I better start looking for a better job or a 3rd job cause my wallet is gonna hate me.

    It really won't.

    It only works on stage 2's. You need to have 3 stage 2's out at once. You can only use Super Boost Energy once.

    For a stage 2 to be good, it can't really have a heavy attack cost without some kind of acceleration because you already have to invest two more cards into getting the stage 2 into play than a basic pokemon has to invest, so investing even more energy sucks.

    Getting 3 stage 2's out at once generally doesn't happen unless you're late in the game, which is harder to get to if none of your individual stage 2's can actually attack because they have high attack costs.

    Then there's the issue of what the hell you're going to do after your opponent deals with your one stage 2 mon with boost energy on it. Yeah, you could take like 4-5 prizes by trying to sweep their board, but what are the rest of your attackers going to do?

    If your deck relies on super boost, you're probably going to lose after you use it. If your deck can win after you use it, you probably don't need it.

    The "4 energy" thing is a really small upside to what is basically "No drawback rainbow energy for stage 2 mons"

    I can't agree with you more. The art would be amazing on a F'ING Giratina GX, if we had one! But nooooo, PTCG decided on a medicore one per game prism Giratina. I hope they bring a GX out that's gonna be playable.

    I like the new products, and think the ETB's look very cool, but I'm not a massive fan of the set logo.
    @Peppercloud I agree with your point about Enhanced Hammer, and all Pokemon which discard energy can easily discard the Super Boost and send it to the Lost Zone - which sucks :(

    I now realise DM Necrozma isn't nearly as bad as I first thought. Partnered up with the Magnezone from Ultra Prism and Mt. Corenet, you can hit 220 every turn! (DW is rubbish tho)

    Wow, Pokemon hate Gardevoir GX...

    DW isn’t horrible, its got rush in, which means it will see some play, just not as much as DM

    Ah man you beat me to it! That art is amazing.

    Gotta be honest I don't love the look of Prism Stars. They look too much like cards from a different game, though I can't put my finger on what the game is.
    Though I guess I thought the same thing when I first saw GX's.

    If only the Big Dumb Mouth Giratina didn't have its big dumb mouth open. Its face just looks goofy like that. Otherwise, the CG artwork looks stunning as a whole.

    Unfortunately for Super Boost Energy the only deck it’s good in is Gardevoir.

    Ugh. Another giant set. Ultra Pro needs to add a couple pages for their set binders. lol For SUM-BUS, I've had to put the reverse holos behind their respective holos to make space for all the holos in the set, plus the PR promos...
