Garchomp & Giratina-GX, Heatran-GX, Grimsley, and More from ‘GG End!’

SM10a GG End has officially been revealed by the official Pokemon Card website!

As posted last year, it’s a Dragon-themed mini-set that will feature 54 cards. The “GG” refers to Giratina and Garchomp (Gablias) and could also refer to the common term “good game.”

It will release on April 5th. Thanks goes to Tunu for the translations!

Garchomp & Giratina-GX – Dragon – HP270
Basic Pokemon (TAG TEAM)

[C] Linear Attack: This attack does 40 damage to 1 of your opponent’s Pokemon. (Don’t apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokemon.)

[P][P][F]+ GG End GX: Discard 1 of opponent’s Pokemon and all cards attached to them. If this Pokemon has at least 3 extra [F] Energy attached to it (in addition to this attack’s cost), discard 2 of your opponent’s Pokemon and all cards attached to them instead. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

Weakness: Water (x2)
Resistance: none

    Garchomp looking fly, one of my favorite cards.
    Might be possible to make a deck with it.
    Mally, koko, Giratina and tag team GG.
    The gx attack is really lackluster unfortunately and 3 Retreat doesnt help in any way. (If it at least could have been 4 you could have used buff padding for even more hp!)

    My question is, last set we got Whimsicott sleeves for seemingly no reason (before the GX reveal). This time we're getting Mawile sleeves for seemingly no reason. Does this mean Mawile-GX?

    Garchomp and Giratina GX look viable in a Malamar deck focus on spread. Not sure wheterh it outclasses Ultra Necrozma since he is rather versatile. Love the Malamar sleeves and the Guzma sleeves. The art of the Grimsley supporter looks awesome but the effect does not seem good to me.

    • Giratina & Garchomp TTGX - Ehh. I even like the atks, but the AC is a pain. This can doable with Malamar for P energy and Mysterious Treasure for it to search out, but for Fighting? Ehh. We don't have a way to feed 4 F energy on this guy. 3 Geodudes
    • Heatran-GX - I like this a lot. I see this a 1-of in some fire decks like how Tapu Koko-GX being a 1-of in some Electric decks. 4 Geodudes
    • Grimsley - this is the same thing as Damage Mover. It do move 30 dmg, not 50, not 100 of some sort. Yeah, its on your opponent's side, but come on! 3-4 Geodudes

    There's some quality artwork. Giratina Garchomp that is. Very stylish.

    Gartina is just a bigger clunkier Ultra Necrozma. These days you will need to get the second attack's boost to get value. I think you would need to play shrine for 1 turn and than once it's effect has happened you ditch it. Damaging your own 3 prizer is a bad idea but you kind of need to. Or you could use dragon song altarias but 1. You don't have the bench space. 2. CLUNKY ALERT!

    Heatran has a great GX attack and Xerneas PS's ability. Keep in mind the ability doesn't switch on it's own. You would just have this in your hand. Plop it down on your bench. Switch. Ability. BOOM! Unfortunately once you use the GX attack then it loses it's use. 130 for RRC is not enough damage for energy. I actually wish this thing had an RC of 4 so you could dump the energy and use fire crystals later in the game. (I know fire crystal only recovers 3 but you can do anther one later) I'd rather that energy in discard than on GXless Heatran GX.

    As for Grimsley... That card is looking grim.

    Heatran is a solid card. It hits for 130 base which is perfect for buzzmosa and its ability/ GX make it splashable in most fire decks. Even the one prize variants.

    Garchomp Giratina is really interesting. Not sure how good it's but including fighting in its attack cost allows us the benefit to use fighting dojo. Dragon talon also seems quiet good with the card. Its first attack has the potential to be paired with Yveltal GX if you so chose.

    Really? It's probably in my top 3 worst GX arts.

    COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH
    Zinnia.

    GG GX looks BUSTED. This with just a SINGLE Decidueye dishes out 260 a turn, 290 with a ‘Band. The GX attack is less than busted, but it can still work some wonders of its own. The problem is [P][F][C]. That’s a heavy price to pay. With no DDE reprint in sight, looks like we’ll be using Zinnia.

    TPCI made a new rule that malamar players MUST use those malamar sleeves.

    Garchomp Giratina is a very specific card that complements a very powerful typing combo in TCG: Psy+Fight. So, with Giratina and Buzzbaby, you have solid 240 dmg every turn with powerful pikarom answer. The GX has an awesome effect, almost assuring an win against rare candy decks, but requires dragon or fighting support, which I think is coming soon.

    Wow, TPC finally reveals stuff again that matters.

    Grimsley is a reversed damage mover in supporter form. Maybe there will be a deck that can use this as 1-of to take the last two prizes or so?

    If I'm not mistaken you won't get to take prize cards if you use the GX of attack of Gartina, since the text says discard and not knock out. Anyway, the card does look interesting.

    Heatran can also be used in some fire decks to take a big KO with the GX attack. Hope we'll get more reveals soon!

    Garchomp/Giratina looks interesting. With Malamar it was be easy to charge up. Throwing in a Shrine of Punishment will put damage counters on all GX's allowing for serious one shot power, even if it slightly damages your own. Personally, I am liking it. That Heatran looks as aweful as the card is :p

    I need thise Guzma, and the Malmar sleeves.... Beautiful artwork!!!

    Maybe he looks fly because he’s flying. It always surprises me every time I re-learn that Garchomp can fly.
    Neh.
    Oh, Heatran.
    Very forgettable. There’s nothing we haven’t seen before.

    Gartina seems like it would be decent when paired with baby Tina and Malamar - can one shot pretty much everything in the meta atm (not even including band). Only needs one fighting energy attached and 2 Malamar on the field - also has access to Viridian, Jirachi and Mysterious Treasure for consistency, not to mention possible backup attackers like baby Buzz, Nihilego, DW Necrozma GX, Marshadow GX, the list goes on. The one thing I don't really like about it is its GX attack.

    Overall, I like this card

    oh heatran's also pretty bad imo

    Mawule and Malamar seem important in this set... Perhaps Gxes?
