Shiny GX, Lycanroc-GX from ‘GX Ultra Shiny;’ Worldwide Card Legality Coming!

The official Japanese Pokemon Card website has revealed several cards that will be included in GX Ultra Shiny! The set will release in Japan on November 2nd.

New cards revealed include “shiny” or “super” secret rares (SSRs) of Zygarde-GX, Rayquaza-GX, and Charizard-GX that feature the Pokemon’s shiny coloring over unique white backgrounds. One shiny GX will automatically be included in each booster box.

Presumably there will be a shiny rare for every GX shown on the set’s booster pack. Rayquaza-GX is #240/150, so there will at least be 90 secret rares. (Yikes!) They probably won’t have the usual real-world rarity of secret rares, as this would make it impossible to collect them all. As posted a while ago, each booster pack will include one GX, so this is probably how they’ll make it easier for fans to collect them all.

A new Lycanroc-GX (in its Dusk Form) and Wonder Labyrinth Prism Star Stadium were also revealed! Lycanroc-GX will be included in our February Team Up set. Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translations!

Lycanroc-GX – Fighting – HP200
Stage 1 – Evolves from Rockruff

Ability: Twilight Eye
When you play this card from your hand to evolve a Pokemon during your turn, you may discard an Energy from your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

[F][C][C] Accelerock: 120 damage.

[F] Radial Edge GX: 30x damage. This attack does 30 damage times the number of Energy cards in your opponent’s discard pile. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

When your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

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

Wonder Labyrinth Prism Star – Trainer

You can’t have more than 1 Prism Star card with the same name in your deck. If a Prism Star card would go to the discard pile, put it in the Lost Zone instead.

Each player’s Pokemon (excluding [Y] Pokemon) pays [C] more to use its attacks.

As long as this Stadium is in play, whenever a player uses an Item or Supporter card from their hand, prevent all effects of those cards done to this Stadium.

This card stays in play when you play it. Discard this card if another Stadium card comes into play. If another card with the same name is in play, you can’t play this card.

The rest of the revealed cards are straight-up reprints of earlier cards or alternate art versions that we’ve already received in America. We know these aren’t the only GX that will be in the set, as shiny Espeon-GX, Ho-Oh-GX, Stakataka-GX, and more are on the booster pack.

The reprinted cards use the “A” or “B” from their original sets, confirming the theory that this will be the way Japan specifies which cards will be legal in the future. This also means Japan and America will soon have synced legalities!

As posted a while ago, GX Ultra Shiny will also feature new full art versions of Cynthia and Guzma. There will also be new Supporter cards for Subway Bosses Ingo & Emmet as well as Battle Chatelaine.

    Why am I getting the feeling that all of the Battle Chatelaine will have same effect.

    Discard the rest 3 and do some crazy things.

    Well, hopefully the Guzma full art follows the Lillie trend, and the old Guzma goes down a bit...

    Hey, I can’t see the Guzma...
    Morgan would be interesting if we knew what Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria did.
    And hey, not that I actually look up the Battle Chatelaines, they all have the same color as the Tapus!
    Coincidence? Yes.

    It seems mostly all secret rares are shiny's and trainer cards. Thats a lot!
  12. RiverShock Aspiring Trainer


    ...You say that even though the one depicted here is in green clothing, which DOESN'T correspond to the colour of a Tapu.

    The Chatelaines are interesting. (Assuming all 4 are similarly gimmicky.) Definitely want to mess around with them at some point. Wonder what the other three do.

    Something tells me that Ingo and Emmet will have a similar rule like the chatelaines, which would be inherently less awkward to use, since you would only discard the other rather than three other cards.

    I was about to retort with "what about my mvp Mr. Bulu?" until I realized he doesn't actually have any green in his design.

    Ok, I love that Pokémon is getting more complicated card mechanics ( Very YGO reminiscent), but seriously, they couldn’t have released Nita, Evelyn, and Dana as well?
  18. AshCo さくうぴい?!


    Still really curious about if/how these are being released internationally. Now that there's more than just the shinies that were on the pack art too, it really does beg some questions. Maybe just next year's special set or some multitude of products? I really am interested now. Especially about the shiny Buzzwole and Lycanroc. I really want to use those.

    • Morgan - I want Evelyn! But anyways, this card is nuts but the downside is pain. 3-4 Geodudes
    • Pls. Let these Guzma and Eevee stay in the format. Pls.
