Update: Pokemon has posted the English version of the card along with an interview on their site:

Why did you choose to match up these two Pokémon as TAG TEAM partners?

Atsushi Nagashima, game director, Pokémon Trading Card Game: We put a lot of thought into each pairing of Pokémon for the TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX cards. With this card, we didn’t want to just make it a powerful card, but we also wanted to deliver new gameplay to players. Gengar & Mimikyu were paired more to match that new gameplay concept than anything else.

How did you combine the distinct traits of these two Pokémon onto a single card?

Mitsuhiro Arita, illustrator, Pokémon Trading Card Game: The difference in size between these two Pokémon is actually much larger than I think most people would guess. Both of them share the characteristic of their ears or horns standing out, and both give off a bit of a spooky impression, so I felt it would be a good idea to place them in front of a moonlit night sky.
