‘Ultra Prism’ Booster Pack, Box, and Theme Deck Images!

We can now exclusively reveal some (Italian) Ultra Prism product images! The set will be released in America and Europe on February 2nd.

The set’s booster packs will feature Dawn Wings Necrozma, Dusk Mane Necrozma, Giratina, and one other Pokemon hidden from view. It’ll probably be a Gen IV Pokemon like Lucario, Dialga, or Palkia.


Fitting with the set’s Diamond and Pearl theme, the theme decks will feature Empoleon and Garchomp:

Ultra Prism is our equivalent of Japan’s SM5 Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon set, which released in Japan today (where it’s Friday).

Empoleon – Water – HP160
Stage 2 – Evolves from Prinplup

[W][C] Total Command: 20x damage. This attack does 20 damage times the number of Pokemon on each player’s Bench.

[W][W][C] Whirlpool: 90 damage. Discard 1 Energy from your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

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

Garchomp – Dragon – HP150
Stage 2 – Evolves from Gabite

[C][C] Quick Dive: This attack does 50 damage to 1 of your opponent’s Pokemon. (Don’t apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokemon.)

[F][C][C] Champion’s Blade: 100+ damage. If you played Cynthia from your hand during this turn, this attack does 100 more damage.

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

We are still waiting for images of the set’s Elite Trainer Boxes (featuring the two Necrozma), the promo blister pack images, and the remaining booster pack. We should have them soon, so be sure to keep checking back!

  1. bomboy2121 blaziken gx is meta


    empoleom deck can be quite good
  2. AFEX Serena is too cute!



    Secondly, I'm surprised the theme decks have actually competitively viable and playable cards with both Empoleon AND Garchomp. Also curious to see if the Garchomp theme deck will have at least 1 Lucario to go as the partner for Garchomp.

    I wonder too if you could build most of the Garchomp deck for standard play from the Garchomp deck. You would think get like 1- 2 copies of Cynthia.

    Okay so remember cynthia would become a holo and would be hard to get? Well... this garchomp theme deck is likely to have 2 cynthia in it :D
  6. Lycancario12 Aspiring Trainer


    I think it would be hilarious if the Garchomp deck 0 copies of Cynthia. Get trolled by Pokemon
  7. supermattdab0ss Sylveon is da b0ss


    I hope...

    I'll appreciate this for one single day, but there's so many colors on the pack arts, I love it!

    Also, as a person who is never a fan of Theme Decks and thinks they generally suck, I'm glad to know that at least the holos in them are the 2 really good ones I bet a good majority of people want to build a deck with (Empoleon and Garchomp), so they're automatically better than 98% of the Theme Decks out there, the other 2% being the BREAKpoint Theme decks because both of them gave you a copy of Max Elixir and Fighting Fury Belt or a nice looking Holo Greninja.

    EDIT: Oh right, and the Garchomp deck is probably going to have at least one copy of Cynthia on the offchance Cynthia suffers the same fate via price increase as Type: Null (You know, since they're both holos).

    by the way did anyone notice that Garchomp is weak to 'Dairy'?

    I really like this set. Also I think that the next few sets might be based on some of the bosses from 'ultra sun' and 'ultra moon' and it is starting with Cyrus. The bosses I am talking about are the admins of RR
  11. @Volkner123 HA! I didn't read that.

    The Giratina (and all the others) pack art looks amazing! This set is going to be realllllllyyyy good. Also, good theme decks? With playable Mons? :eek:
  12. Potion – Trainer

    Heal 30 damage from 1 of your Pokemon, then punch your opponent.

    You may play up to 59 Item cards during your turn (before you attack them).

    found this in the translations. True, but.... Seriously?

    Might actually buy the theme decks and for the booster packs may I say NICE!

    The noivern theme deck from Breakthrough was also pretty good, because it contained 1 copy of Stand In Zoroark.
