Reshiram & Charizard-GX, Volcanion, Fire Crystal, Welder from ‘Double Blaze!’

Following on our news story earlier today, we now have photos from CoroCoro magazine revealing Reshiram & Charizard-GX, Volcanion, a new Item card called Fire Crystal, and a new Supporter card called Welder!

Reshiram & Charizard-GX – Fire – HP270
Basic Pokemon (TAG TEAM)

[R][C] Outrage: 30+ damage. This attack does 10 more damage for each damage counter on this Pokemon.

[R][R][R][C] Flare Strike: 230 damage. This Pokemon can’t use Flare Strike during your next turn.

[R][R][R]+ Double Blaze GX: 200+ damage. If this Pokemon has at least 3 extra [R] Energy attached to it (in addition to this attack’s cost), this attack does 100 more damage and it’s not affected by any effects on your opponent’s Active 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: Water (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 3


Volcanion – Fire – HP120
Basic Pokemon

[R] Flare Starter: Search your deck for a Fire Energy card, reveal it, and attach it to 1 of your Pokemon. Then, shuffle your deck. If you’re the player going second, on your first turn you may search your deck for up to 3 Fire Energy cards instead and attach them to your Pokemon in any way you like.

[R][R] High Heat Blow 50+ damage. If 4 or more Fire Energy are attached to your Pokemon in play, this attack does 60 more damage.

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


Fire Crystal – Trainer
Item

Put 3 Fire Energy cards from your discard pile into your hand.

You may play as many Item cards as you like during your turn (before your attack).


Welder – Trainer
Supporter

Attach up to 2 Fire Energy cards from your hand to 1 of your Pokemon. If you do, draw 3 cards.

You may play only 1 Supporter card during your turn (before your attack).

Double Blaze will release in Japan on March 1st and will be the tenth main Sun & Moon set. It’ll feature 95 cards (excluding secret rares). The set will become part of our Unbroken Bonds set in May. Thanks goes to tunu for the translations!

    Wow, Welder’sa pretty dope. Blace may not have as much of a need for Energy Switches anymore, but I might keep them anyways. This also obviously combos well with Charizard & Reshiram-GX. FIre Crystal + Welder will be deadly with TEU Ninetales as well. You get draw support, Attachments, AND a switch.

    Old Volcanion strategy is back again, along with "Blacksmith" style Welder that is really good with energy attachment and draw power in one. Now you can Lt. Surge and use to Welder's turn one and not even bother with Kiawe turn delay. Surprised they gave Reshiram/Charizard Gx 270 Hp but artwork looks way better than the deck box art they revealed earlier.

    It doesn't look that bad to me. If there is any energy accel in Double Blaze which there probably will; i think that this card might be okay. But outrage is the only attack that costs less.

    Ok I love the charizard and reshiram art. Also with the new energy acceleration...I might immediately take back about saying C&R is just a slightly better Ho-Oh

    The Volcanion, Wielder, and Fire Crystal seem to be meant to support Charizard&Reshiram GX. To accelerate the energy charge for its attacks. However, i believe that Charizard&Reshiram GX will only work if a deck is made with the Volcanion, Wielder, and Fire Crystal to support the GX. But that's my opinion.

    As we're getting more information on this site more than ever, Bulbapedia is becoming less and less reliable each week, and they're normally good for set lists.

    Every person who said that they should make an Eevee and Reshiram tag team GX card doesn’t understand the tcg at all.

    I was thinking about using the usual jirachi engine that people thought with zapdos.

    Despite it being the "cool" thing nowadays to hate Charizard, I actually like him, but whether or not you do doesn't matter-that art is incredible either way. It's such a nice look and it really continues how good these TTGX's look.

    Welder would be really good IMO even without the draw 3 bonus. Doesn’t have to go on fire Pokémon either the way it looks.. you could power up an Eevee/Snorlax on T1 with this and a DCE.

    These card are going to be the reason Flareon-GX is going to win Worlds. Mark my words!

    • Fire Crystal - it can be useful in some situations. But I prefer Fiery Flint if you want early access for Energy accel. 4 Geodudes
    • Welder - the combo between this and Fiery Flint is nuts. Better than Kiawe because it won't end your turn. Fire Decks are getting some love <3 Happy Valentine's Day guys! 5 Geodudes
    • Volcanion - more reasons for being first-turn-going-second. We still need a fidget spinner tho. 4-5 Geodudes
    • Charizard & Reshiram TTGX - with these new Fire tricks right now? Volcanion + Welder + nrg attachment for nxt turn = 300 dmg. Nice! 5 Geodudes now.
    • These could make Blacephalon a mad deck
