Dedenne-GX Confirmed, Zoroark & Greninja-GX Details, New Raichu!

We have now seen the official Night Unison information that Pokemon sent to hobby stores in Japan!

The rumored Dedenne-GX and its Ability have now been confirmed! As I previously posted, its Ability allows you to discard your entire hand and draw 6 cards. The ad does not specify anything else about the Ability, such as if it only activates when you play Dedenne-GX from your hand.

The GX attack for Zoroark & Greninja-GX allows it to put a Pokemon-EX or Pokemon-GX from your discard pile directly on to your Bench. Its normal attack increases in damage the more Darkness Energy that are in play.

There will be a Pokemon-GX whose attack effect changes depending on the Supporter cards you’ve played. The ad says this will be the first GX to have an attack with this kind of effect.

And finally, a new Raichu will attach all Lightning Energy from your discard pile to your Pokemon in a dire situation (meaning if its HP is low or you’re down on Prizes). Sadly, there’s no sign of an Alolan Raichu-GX yet…

Night Unison will release in Japan on January 11th and will feature 55 cards. It will likely be combined with Full Metal Wall into our May set next year. Thanks go to Hannes S., Michael S., and Bangiras for the translations!

    Zoarark-Greninja's GX could be good for stage 2 GXes.
    If Dedenne's ability is from hand (not something ridiculous like end your turn to discard and draw 6), that's going to be verrrry good.
    The Raichu looks alright, as long as it's not "If your opponent has 4 less prizes than you"

    Z&G-GX + Naganadel seems really good.

    Dedenne- I first need to know when the ability and other stats are revealed before I can say whether it's useful. Discard Draw 6 seems good though

    ZoroNinja- Does not seem to be too strong. You need to know attack costs and damage.

    Raichu- Really cool if the requirement isn't hard to reach.

    That Raichu will be terrible. I'd expect it to be something along the lines of if the opponent only has a single prize left. (Despite the fact we have several cards that can attach like 5 energy from the discard.)

    it is useful, most people need to discard their hand anyways, rather than shuffle it back into the deck, and probably draw out the same cards. IT Can excel where shaymin ex cannot, in expanded this can be comboed with a shaymin-ex.

    Never imagined Dedenne getting a full art, or even an ultra rare.

    Glad it is though. I'll say it once and I'll say it again, random, more odd choices for Pokemon getting ultras is always a good thing. It's really made me like this era a lot more than I did prior.

    Wasn't there a Dedenne EX? Or was that Emolga?

    Dedenne GX will be the next drawing chase card that comes in 2-3 year cycles, Pidgeot, Uxie, Shaymin EX, Tapu Lele GX. Price will be high after Lele is rotated.

    Effect changes depending on the number of supporters played? I'm intrigued by this card.

    I think this will actually be in our February set, since there are only like 2 "new" cards in the Ultra Shiny set (that are not just shiny reprints).

    Me when I see spoilers of the set going to launch after 6 months:

    If this is a marketing stunt to make us bite our nails in anticipation, it ain't working.

    Also me,
