Gengar & Mimikyu-GX in SM9 ‘Tag Bolt!’

The second Tag Team GX will presumably be Gengar & Mimikyu-GX!

A pack of 64 card sleeves featuring Gengar and Mimikyu will be released in Japan on December 7th, the same day as SM9 Tag Bolt. The sleeves are officially named “Gengar & Mimikyu TAG TEAM GX.” They will retail for 980 yen.

Card sleeves often hint at Pokemon-GX that will be in a set — and this one specifically names the card!

Gengar & Mimikyu-GX means the Tag Team cards won’t be restricted to Pokemon of the same stage, as Gengar is a Stage 2 Pokemon and Mimikyu is a Basic Pokemon.

Tag Team Pokemon-GX feature two Pokemon of the same type on one card. They give up three Prize cards, but feature more HP and stronger attacks. Presumably their attacks increase in damage when more Energy are attached to them — though we’re not sure if this will apply to all of them since we only have Pikachu & Zekrom-GX to go off currently.

We will get our first Tag Team GX in our SM9 February set, which is currently unnamed. It will feature over 181 cards.

    How are you able to take 5 prizes in one attack without GXing?

    ''Tag Team GX'' might be interesting if you play the game, but come on, this just looks very cheap from a collector's point of view. Too much action packed CGI going on, especially in the already quite busy GX-card lay out. I guess that's just what appeals to the kids nowadays..

    Compliments for the idea though. It does give a lot of interesting possibilities and I am curious for the rest of these cards, like Mimikiyu/Gengar. Just hope they start looking (a lot) better.. Maybe at least the Full Arts?! : )

    I wonder if it will have a weakness. If it has a psychic weakness than Naganadel will probably make this card unplayable.

    Hmm.. so does anyone know if this goes straight to the bench, or is this some sort of evolutionary type thing?

    I think alakazam and mewtwo would be too overpowered. But you are right. Mewtwo and alakazam would be really awesome. While we are hoping maybe they will make Mewtwo and Deoxys.

    I'm a little sad that Gengar won't be getting his own GX card yet, but I'm still excited. I wonder if Tag Team GXs will be too gimmicky to actually work competitively though?

    I'm sorry? You said too much CG going on? Look at the Pikachu & Zekrom card closely. That's hand-drawn artwork by Mitsuhiro Arita, not a CG artist. So quite frankly, as a collector and as someone who loves traditional artwork over CG, this makes me far more interested in Tag Team GX's than most other GX (and EX) cards ever have. (It is also an interesting concept for the TCG itself.)

    The card will be most likely weak to dark, as both are ghost types in the game, and gengar at least is weak to dark (its neutral against mimikyu cuz fairy)

    Well, would have to take that back than (I didn't look at the close up because it just looked ugly, My bad). You're right, definitely not CGI and a lot better, however I still think the card is way to busy and a bit cheap looking.. Maybe just not my style.

    However I do agree that if these cards are indeed all drawn, that promises something, and, as I stated above, I also like this new concept because it does give room for some interesting artworks! Thanks for the notification.
