Aegislash, Pokemon Research Lab from ‘Miracle Twins!’

Aegislash and Pokemon Research Lab have been revealed from SM11 Miracle Twins! The set will release in Japan on May 31st and will then become part of our Unified Minds set in August. Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translations!

Aegislash – Psychic – HP130
Stage 2 – Evolves from Doublade

Ability: Undying Sword
If this Pokemon is Knocked Out by damage from an opponent’s attack, put it into your hand. (Discard all cards attached to it.)

[C] Rubble Slash: 10x damage. This attack does 10 damage for each Item card in your discard pile. You can’t do more than 130 damage in this way.

Weakness: Darkness (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 3

(Note: As with Splash Energy, you also return the Doublade and Honedge underneath Aegislash to your hand since they both count as Aegislash.)


Pokemon Research Lab – Trainer
Stadium

Once during each player’s turn, that player may search their deck for up to 2 cards that evolve from Unidentified Fossil and play them onto their Bench. Then, that player shuffles their deck and their turn ends.

This card stays in play when you play it. Discard this card if another Stadium card comes into play. If another card with the same name is in play, you can’t play this card.

The set will also feature an alternate art reprint of Sightseer.

    Hmm, if we're getting some new fossil lines here, hopefully they pick Anorith, Lileep, Tirtouga and/or Archen. You know, the ones that haven't been printed since XY or BW.

    Aegislash looks really cool and fun to use, and that’s a nice alternate art on Sightseer, too!

    Wait does the stadium just auto evolve Unidentified Fossil or does it play them for free like Lance Prism?

    Assuming the translated text is correct, you get to play them directly to the Bench. But it's not for free -- it ends your turn, which is a pretty hefty price to pay for just 2 Fossils, unless they end up being pretty good.

    At the moment is does make Trainer Lock slightly more realistic -- with Kabutops Active and Omastar in the back, as long as you've got less Pokemon in play than your opponent you'll be blocking both Items and Supporters (although just Omastar alone is probably more realistic). Baby Aerodactyl can also be played directly and does 180 for [C][C][C] if you have no EX/GX in play, and yes, it's eligible for Triple Acceleration Energy because it's a Stage 1.

    And that's before we even know what Fossils this set has in store for us!

    Imagine Ultra Prism Rampardos and Super Boost/Counter Energy one-shotting tag teams with the new Stadium...maybe Fossil Box will become something?

    • Pokemon Research Lab - that could make Fossil decks even better. That means, you don't need a frikin playset of Unidentified Fossil and RC to a Stage 2 (although its impossible), that makes Stage 2s become Stage 1s. This is like Twist Mountain. 4 Geodudes. Although the "Your turn ends" is annoying, I have to reduce it to 3-4. You still need those frikin items.
    • Aegislash - Close enough to KO Mewmew. We don't have Choice Band anymore you know? 3 Geodudes

    I can't believe it... They actually made this Sightseer's art look like a selfie photo. Pretty silly if you ask me! x)

    I feel like this is something you dig for on turn one in an Aerodactyl deck while setting up the malamar on the bench for sustainability later.

    Aegislash does seem to have a lot of potiential. Dusk Stone is major boon to get it on the field asap, the energy costs are minimal and 130 dmg for 1 energy is very promising. Not to mention its ability helping solve the headache of any decks using Stage 2 attackers, namely having to dig for multiple copies. You can run minimal amounts of the line, something like 3/2/3 and minimal energy counts, leaving the rest of the deck free for other support pokemon and useful trainers, something few Stage 2 decks can boast. That said, 130 hp for a Stage 2, even one easy to get on the field, is such a poor number and 130 dmg is not enough to 2hko a tag team, especially one that needs 13 Items in the discard! (not Trainers). I predict we might see it having to use Shrine to buff their damage numbers.

    Pokemon Research Lab is indeed another solid support for fossil decks. Giving up your turn to place down 2 Evo pokemon on your bench will be an interesting trade off. At the very least, it might give Omastar/Kabutops Fossil Control a chance at Rogue status

    Yep, it is actually the same situation. This is the selfie Sightseer is seen taking in the original artwork.

    Can you grab Stage 2s with the Research Lab?
     
  17. And on top of that, let's make them there alternate types. Anorith as grass (bug) Tirtouga and Lileep as fighting (rock) and Archen as colorless (flying). Well I can dream.

    Aegislash actually looks ok with Meganium. (I am aware of dusk stone I just think that having Unb Incinerar is vital to reaching numbers) If they K.O it than you just use Meganium and put it back on your bench. Meganium can instantly evolve. You know that Aegislash is in hand after the ability. I'm not at all concerned reaching the damage cap. It's items. Meganium already play unb Incineroar. That's 160. This is a non GX! Once you take into account Spell tags and Giant bombs this looks like a Tag team killer! Though. I might be exaggerating. Aegislash is one of my favourite Pokemon. Also that artwork is better than pack art! It's amazing!

    Fossil lab is nice. It eliminates the need for fossil and rare candy. It makes them more consistent. I might give Fossilock another try. (TEU Kabutops and Omastar together)

    This, this is beautiful. I never knew how much I wanted selfie artwork for Sightseer until today. This is great and fits well with the theme of the card itself. Say what you want but, I love it.

    No, hold on, that is a good question. Can it grab Stage 2s?
    Another ruling question:
    Should we choose to grab Aerodactyl, will it remain as an Evolution Pokémon? If so, you’re hitting for 180 on a Basic, maybe grab Incineroar for a 210... pretty good, but doesn’t hit the numbers.
    Rampardos one-shots Pikarom, tho.
