Moltres & Zapdos & Articuno-GX from ‘Sky Legend’ Revealed!

As expected, CoroCoro magazine has revealed “Moltres & Zapdos & Articuno-GX” from SM10b Sky Legend! The set will release in Japan on April 25th.

Moltres & Zapdos & Articuno-GX – Colorless – HP300
Basic Pokemon (TAG TEAM)

[R][W][L][C] Trinity Burn: 210 damage.

[C]+ Sky Legend GX: Shuffle this Pokemon and all cards attached to it into your deck. If this Pokemon has at least 1 extra [R] Energy, 1 extra [W] Energy, and 1 extra [L] Energy attached to it (in addition to this attack’s cost), this attack does 110 damage to 3 of your opponent’s Pokemon. (Don’t apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokémon.) (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: Lightning (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 3

This is the first Tag Team card to feature more than two Pokemon. This card exists to pay homage to the jumbo Articuno, Moltres, & Zapdos promo from the ’90s, which was the first Pokemon card to feature multiple Pokemon. That card was also illustrated by Mitsuhiro Arita.

This card also has the the highest HP in the TCG, tying with Magikarp and Wailord-GX (excluding illegal “joke” cards that have more).

We should get a clearer image of the card this week or next week when the official Japanese Pokemon card website updates.

Thanks goes to Tunu for the image and translation!

    Shining Arceus comes to mind? A bit awkward though.

    Arita hit the nail on the head this time. Best looking card in the whole era maybe? I hope the alternate art is gorgeous too. Tag Teams (besides the FA/RR ones) are the silver lining of sun and moon.

    I don't think this would work, but maybe it would -- would a single extra rainbow energy satisfy the requirements for the GX attack?

    Ugh, more power creep.

    There are ways to load this thing by turn 2 - koko prism for the lightning, Aqua Patch for the water, and 2 turns of fire attachment. Go first + luck of the draw = win. (And don't @ with me with Zapdos and weakness when that GX attack takes out 3 zapdos or 2 zapdos + jirachi with one shot). Add wishful baton and a deck built on getting the Koko and AP, and this thing becomes another power-creep-luck-of-the-draw-win.

    Do we see Regi-GX, AMU-GX, and Beasts-GX in the future?

    Despite the card being bad, the artwork is incredible. Would have really liked to see some multi-typing here to capture all of their respective types and freshen up the game a bit, but mono-Flying is alright I guess.

    Very cool art. I'm curious on how the name will be formatted in the English release.

    I somewhat expected it to take four prize cards or something when it's knocked out, so I'm pleasantly surprised about it only taking three, even if it's still a bit much.
