Alolan Marowak-GX English Promo!

Alolan Marowak-GX has accidentally been revealed in English!

 

Forum user Zierant was scanning his cards with TPCi’s new “Card Dex” app and discovered the app was able to recognize the Japanese version of the card. Upon scanning it, the English version of the card popped up. It doesn’t work with other upcoming cards, though.

As posted before, the card will release in our Alolan Marowak-GX Box in May. The product image hasn’t been revealed yet.

    If that works, I was hoping that it'll work with the Fidget Spinner to know that we will getting this card.

    It’s not that good of a card. Unless you have Infernape and an upcoming Parasect.

    I actually think it's quite good. Not for its attack, but the curse body effect is really good and will discourage people from wanting to hit into Marowak which is beneficial if you are playing a lot of one prize attacker like in a spread deck. Its GX attack is also great and the fact that it costs zero energy means it requires only a ditto to execute in most decks.

    I think Marowak’s playing around with Special Conditions is meh, but worth considering. Can also pair up with LOT Giratina and take out some smaller basics with Lost Boomerang (just make sure it’s not natus or wheat ever lol)

    He could play in stall decks. For no energy, he constantly confuses anyone hitting him, you can Max potion him and still get off his (decent) GX attack.

    He's also a decent front man for Decidueye decks.

    The problem is that he doesn't fit the power creep in the game right now. Basics are taking over again, and they deliver big damage, fast. Just don't see this guy working well in that aggressive format.

    It might actually be thrown in the next set as both a RR and a Full Art.

    That would be fine.

    I don't pull full arts.

    This card could have been good pre- Team up, but with cobalion-gx now in the format, it makes this card a little underwhelming.

    Why do they even waste money printing cards like these?

    Because people would complain, regardless of how bad a card it was, if it didn't come to the west, and since I don't see them releasing it via gym competitions outside Japan, They have instead released it as a promo in a box targeted towards collectors (those who have survived the flood of ultra and secret rare cards in sets anyway) and towards people who want to pick up cheap booster packs when this goes on sale in about 6 months.

    That or they could always insert Marowak GX into a set and watch people rage when one their ultra rare pulls are wasted on it. At least this way, you have a choice as to whether or not you want Marowak GX.

    I feel like this Alolan Marowak-GX will probably end up as a Ditto {*} Pokémon to Evolve into. Lost Boomerang GX may prove useful for spread to achieve not only a dual knockout, but one that costs 0 Energy, and the opponent can’t get anything back from it. As well as when they attack it the next turn, they get Confused, which is a nice little addition. Being a GX Pokémon sucks though. I’ll try finding a way to use it, but there’s probably not a whole bunch to use it with.
