Clear Images of ‘Jolteon-GX / Flareon-GX / Vaporeon-GX Special Collections!’

We now have clear images of the upcoming “Jolteon-GX / Flareon-GX / Vaporeon-GX Special Collections!”

As posted before, each collection will come with one of three holo Eevee-GX promos, a holo promo of either Jolteon-GX, Flareon-GX, or Vaporeon-GX, a jumbo version of the Eeveelution-GX, five booster packs, and a PTCGO code card.

Each collection will retail for $29.99. They’ll release on January 18th.

In Europe, the only related product confirmed so far is an Eevee-GX Box. Oddly, only one of the three Eevee-GX will be released through that box, whereas in America we’re getting all three within these products.

The three Eeveelution-GX were released in Japan last week within starter decks featuring each Eeveelution-GX.

    I bet people will get either of these three because they're all good and saw tournament success in Japan.
    • Jolteon for power control since it hits for low energy cost.
    • Vaporeon for bulk, pairing it with Glaceon and NagaQuag for energy accel.
    • Hoping for Flareon to be good soon.

    I don’t think I’ve commented on these cards before...

    Jolteon is completely underwhelming. Sure, Jet Punch is pretty cool, but why don’t you use it on Buzzwole? The second attack should probably not be used... ever. The GX attack is I guess a little bit of damage, enough to set up a 2hko, AND you avoid all attacks, so that’s good. Oh, yeah, in the bottom-left corner. Yeah, see it? Yep, there it is. Fighting weakness. I don’t like it.

    Flareon is actually pretty good. Heat Stage is a good attack, hands down, if not a great one. It sets up itself in a single turn. Bright Flame is a very good attack, for relatively cheap (considering Heat Stage) and relatively low discard. The GX attack is good for a finisher, or if you just dumped a bunch in with Ultra Ball early game. The good thing about this card is that its attacks tie in together for a KO attack. I really like it.

    Vaporeon is confusing. The healing ability is nice (and it stacks), but when would you use that? Any suggestions? The attack is nice, the multiplier and decent (for a Hydro Pump attack) base damage doesn’t hurt either. The GX attack, along with the ability, is confusing unless your Tool of choice is Bodybuilding Dumbbells and your opponent can’t OHKO you. Wait, that sounds like Zoroark! Nevermind, it’s good. It goes against Zoroark, can OHKO it, and heals max 120 damage off of itself with 4 Vaporeon. Even with Zoro having Choice Band, it still can only do 30 damage a turn. I like it, but only against Zoroark!

    I'm probably answering my own question here, but are people really that opposed to playing Weakness Policy to deal with Brosquito? I get that Faba and Blower are things out there, and that most people see defensive tools as a waste...but if people are that worried about Brosquito enough to dismiss any card with a fighting weakness, it certainly couldn't hurt.

    I think Flareon is pretty good actually. Flint grabs you 4 [R] to attach with Flareon's first attack, which helps set up like Kiawe without losing your attack. 190 damage for a mere two [R] attachments is amazing considering most cards have you detach more than that for similar numbers and you can recharge it ridiculously easy in various ways. The GX attack isn't too shabby either for a single attachment, and while you have to have 9+ energies in there to reach OHKO levels on GX's, it's easy enough to pop off that it could def be useful as a low-cost finishing blow to something nearly dead.

    Flareon is going to be great, I want to test it with Alolan Ninetales to sequence flints, should at least be interesting.
    Vaporeon is a better Leafeon, which in this current meta is pretty good.

    Despite these cards designs being quite good, I still hope they release some full arts.

    Can't wait to make another water deck finally
     
  10. I personally think Jolteon is the best of the 3 because you can energy evolution for a turn 1 *jet punch* and with electropower you can do 60+ damage. as for the attacks, the first one is a little underwhelming, but it can take 2hkos.
    itś GX attack is great because you prevent all damage for the next turn giving you a turn of immunity if you're in a tough spot. in japan, this has been played with dark order zapdos and jirachi and won a tournament, so it obviously has potential. A good comparison to this card would be lycanroc in buzzroc, it doesn't have a very good attack (it pretty much has the same attack) but is used for its ability and gx attack, you don't play it for the whole game but you have a different main attacker

    So when would these cards be considered legal for play? Is it the third Friday after release or the first?

    Ok I have questions and concerns here...
    I have not seen these Eeveelutions as tins for Europe, but the site of my local(-ish) card store shows that these GXes come in tins. https://www.spellenhuis.nl/trading-cards/pokemon - am I just blind or has pokebeach not covered them?

    Only I cannot find the alternate Eevee GX'es anywhere. I hate that Europe gets shafted, again and for what? I do like tins but I CANNOT miss out on alternate Eevees. Any more info on this? Or do I absolutely have to import? That's so dang expensive to do with taxes and all that >.<

    And again I have to ask why it is like this; just like I have seen it mentioned here that Europe does not get figurines because it's the 'law', but what law? I can't find anything on this. If anyone knows what law/why we aren't allowed to get the figurines, that would help.
    As I see it, it is nonesense... as it makes no sense. And I'd say that changing up the products per region costs them more money than it should, so it'd be better to release the same products both in the US and in the EU... I just... don't get this. It's so frustrating.

    Pokebeach has reported on the tins, but they haven't posted a further update to reveal the images of them.

    It is odd how drastically different they are being released between EU and US, especially when the collection boxes don't even contain any figurines. In fact, the boxes are even designed like the European collection boxes (i.e. Jumbo card on the left-hand side of the box with 5 packs) lol.

    We'll just have to wait and see how the other 2 Eevee GXs are released in Europe, if at all.

    On the bright side for Europe, tin codes are always nice. Getting 2 copies of a card is sweet, especially when the card is currently exclusive as a promo, and reverse holo energies are always nice to have (first tin to provide S&M Water Energies).

    Yes, I do really like tins. I just moved out and I have some boxes and tins in my window sill (I believe that's what it's called in English?) and they look so nice. These tins will go perfectly with the Leafeon, Glaceon and Sylveon ones. But, still, I'd faint for the American products as well. Kinda want both I think, as my top favorites are the Eeveelutions (and the Vulpix and Fennekin lines - I NEED Kanto Ninetales GX with a jumbo as big as a poster to hang on my wall XD ).

    Mostly I just really want to know what's up with the Eevee GX version for Europe. Now... if they release a tin for one or both of those as well, I'm actually quite cool with it (as I said I like tins a lot - also for the reasons you mentioned btw, It's nice getting decks, two copies of a promo GX and foil energies... tho I do miss that those decks are not in the physical tins. They seem to be for storage but are quite impractical for that... also wish they'd include themed coins. Still can't get over how the Sylveon Theme deck of XY had a Lucario coin - and that mon wasn't even part of the deck!).

    Was gonna say something else, but I forgot >.<

    You may have heard/seen already, but the Eevee GX box comes in 3 variations. :)

    No? My local store only has 1 kind. You've gotta be kidding me.

    So to get them you need to buy the 3 different boxes and 3 tins for the evolutions. Wow, nice way to milk us. And exactly when I've also ordered the evolution gx boxes from the USA :p
