Greninja & Zoroark-GX Tag Team from ‘Night Unison’ Revealed!

Greninja & Zoroark-GX from SM9a Night Unison have been revealed! The card matches teaser information we previously posted.

Greninja & Zoroark-GX – Darkness – HP250
Basic Pokemon (TAG TEAM)

[D][C] Dark Pulse: 30+ damage. This attack does 30 more damage for each [D] Energy attached to your Pokemon.

[D][C]+ Night Unison GX: Put 2 in any combination of [D] Pokemon-GX or Pokemon-EX from your discard pile onto your Bench. If this Pokemon has at least 1 extra Energy attached to it (in addition to this attack’s cost), attach 2 Energy cards from your discard pile to each of those Pokemon. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

When your TAG TEAM is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 3 Prize cards.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: Psychic (-20)
Retreat: 2

Thanks goes to tunu for the translation!

As posted a while ago, Night Unison is a mini-set that will release in Japan on January 11th and feature 55 cards. It’ll include Gardevoir & Sylveon-GX, some Fairy Pokemon, Zoroark & Greninja-GX, Dedenne-GX, and a new Raichu.

Update: The booster box reveals Zeraora, Rattata, and Wooper will be in the set.

    This could make Tyranitar - GX playable! This is perhaps the first Tag Team GX I'm somewhat interested in playing!

    DARKRAI IS BACK BOYS
    Seriously though, this card is going to be beast in expanded. Dont know about standard though. It doesnt say D basic so maybe paired with either Zoroark, Tyranitar, Hoopa or Incineroar?

    Greninja & Zoroark Tag Team GX + Incineroar-GX from Team Up = A very very very good deck IMO.

    Good and cheap attacks, just like Mimikyu&Gengar and its weakness is just as bad, and this has no good energy acceleration in Standard (with Naganadel maybe?)...seems somewhat alluring but I'm not convinced. The illustration is pretty rad though, probably the best out of all the tag teams yet.

    Darkrai Prism star + Naganadel will help you get energy out on the board and energy switch will help you move some of those energy so you can attack without the need of acceleration. We also have counter gain to allow you to attack for 1 dark energy if you are behind on prizes.

    Yeah, that sounds promising...question is, will it be a better partner for Naganadel than Blacephalon?

    Only time will tell I suppose. I really dislike Blacephalon so I'm willing to try out Naganadel with anything else lol

    While this card's Fighting weakness makes it quite the risky card to play, a lot of these Tag Team Pokemon can be pretty crazy in Expanded. This one would make a good addition to the speed Darkrai deck. lol Or run this with Dark Order Incineroar-GX...

    I don't like the box/pack art at all. Doesn't even look like a Pokémon product.

    This plus dark Incineroar GX makes for a better VikaRay

    You can get 270 damage T3 (2 attached to Greninja and Zoroark TTGX and 3 on 2 Incineroars)

    Very interesting concept, might not get much play with decks like Blacephalon, Granbull, Lost March, Ultra Necrozma leaving one to zero energy on the attacking Pokemon.

    It's kind of a coincidence to reveal this card shortly after Smash Ultimate came 0ut.

    On another note, Turbo Dark is back, but the loss of Max Elixir in standard hurts.

    Basically a dark version of Rayquaza Gx that will be really good in expanded and if more 2 stage dark lines come about it's Gx attack can be a nice way to set things up. But of course the weakness to fighting will make it a easy target to knock out in a lot of matchups.

    that first attack reminds me very much of one of the Darkrai EX or GX cards we've had in recent years.
    and that GX attack is silly. so it has built in dark patch as well, and its 2 energy to each pokemon you pick.
    this could be another 4 of copy in every zoroark deck... well sort of.

    that [D][C] energy cost, doesn't work for DCE which is what normal zoroark decks run on. i'm sure someone will find a way to make this work. those guys in japan have been winning with all sorts of crazy decks. even the eeveelutions on day 1 of their release and even magikarp and wailord tag team gx is doing well.

    Why wouldn’t it work for DCE? It says two energy cards not two energies or basic energies

    im not sure this is as good as people are making it out to be ... will be an obviously good aggro archetype in expanded, w/ compressor/patch/elixir it will swing 210+ on turn 2 consistently and can tank a hit from just about anything.

    can't make it work in my head in standard though. even if you could get the gx attack to work turn 2 consistently, most decks rn can hit 120+ turn 2 on, so you'd most likely be going down 3 prizes to start off the game. so you would only be able to come back against gx decks that can't OHKO you. autoloss anything fighting, struggle against the aggression of blacephalon or vikaray or even a malamar running hot, lose to one prizers that 2 shot you (granbull, lost march). it's good against zoroark and gardevoir probably, because they will really struggle to chain KO's, but the combination of lack of speed, bad weakness, and 3 prize liability seems pretty easy to counter overall.
