Misty’s Request, Night City, Lapras from ‘Miracle Twins!’

Three new cards from SM11 Miracle Twins have been revealed on the official Japanese Pokemon TCG website! The set will become part of our Unified Minds set in August. Thanks goes to Arantxa T. for the translations!

Lapras – Water – HP110
Basic Pokemon

Ability: Mermaid Call
Once during your turn (before your attack), you may search your discard pile for Misty’s Request, show it to your opponent, and put it into your hand.

[W][W][C] Surf: 90 damage.

Weakness: Grass (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1


Misty’s Request – Trainer
Supporter

Search your deck for up to 3 Supporter cards, reveal them, and put them into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.

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


Night City – Trainer
Stadium

All Basic [D] Pokemon in play (both yours and your opponent) have no Retreat Cost.

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.

Update: The card only works with Basic [D] Pokemon, not all [D] Pokemon.

Clearer images of Psyduck & Slowpoke-GX and Mega Sableye & Tyranitar-GX were revealed. Jirachi-GX and Weavile-GX from the GX theme decks have not been revealed yet, though.

Mega Sableye & Tyranitar-GX – Darkness – HP280
Basic Pokemon (TAG TEAM)

[D][D][D][D][C] Greed Crash: 210 damage. If your opponent’s Active Pokemon is a Pokemon-GX or Pokemon-EX and is Knocked Out by damage from this attack, take 1 more Prize card.

[D][D][D][D][C]+ Gigafall GX: 250 damage. If you have 5 additional Energy attached to this Pokemon (in addition to this attack’s cost), discard 15 cards from the top of your opponent’s deck. (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: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: Psychic (-2)
Retreat: 4


Psyduck & Slowpoke-GX – Water – HP250
Basic Pokemon (TAG TEAM)

[W][W] Tossing Splash: 40x damage. Discard any number of Supporter cards from your hand. This attack does 40 damage for each card discarded in this way.

[W][W]+ Excitement Time GX: 10+ damage. Flip a coin. If heads, this attack does 100 more damage. If you have at least 6 extra Energy attached to this Pokemon (in addition to this attack’s cost), flip 10 coins instead, and do 100 more damage for each heads.

When your TAG TEAM is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 3 Prize cards.

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

    The proportions on Lapras are very... off. And I'm usually a stan for himemaru!

    Also I this that people how rely on Supporter cards like Morgan will find a use for Misty’s Request and the fact that Lapras act like a VS Seeker foe Misty’s Request mean you just need to run the one Misty.

    so use misty to get all 3 copies of misty into hand, 1 in discard, use lapras to get 4th misty into hand, then use powered up psyduck + slowpoke gx attack and discard 4 misty to hit for 160, repeat next turn.

    could work especially if fire stays big.

    well well, so now we have a card that will load up for Psyduck and Slowpoke's attack. i hope we can have more support for that attack. cause 160 for 2 is decent, but it needs so much set up

    From 2 boxes I pulled no Erika or Sabrina (no Brock or Jasmine either, but the other 2 were my top wishes), from 3 boxes no Koga or Janine. Will Misty be my first gym leader FA? I had no Whitney or any other gym leader before either, but I never did open more than 1 box before the last 2 sets.

    Not that much. If you run four Misty's Request in addition to at least twelve other supporter cards and four Lapras you can use Misty's request to get three other supporter to discard a total of six supporters each turn. With Choice Band this should enable Psyduck and Slowpoke GX to hit relevant numbers at a constant rate. Also include two to three Pal Pad to retrieve supporters not named Misty's Request since the four Lapras will be able to retrieve all four Misty's Request from the discard on their own.

    I like the art on Night City and Misty’ Request, and their effects look fun, too!

    The thing with Misty's Request is that you can only play 1 supporter per turn unless you are behind on prizes and play Surge. It's best use will be lessening the potential of having a dead hand next turn and even that isn't guaranteed with disruption cards.

    Heracross is going to be to situational. Maybe a tech for decks like Pikarom...

    Terrakion's cave king attack is a really good number when you combine it with diancie, dojo and band. Unfortunately DCE is rotating so this attack is to costly. I won't mention the second attack. BTW what will you use to damage your Pokemon? Drm Trapinch?

    Misty was obviously meant to be played with Slowduck TTGX so you can get supporters into your hand to inflict dmg.

    Misty and Lapras: The combo could be turned into a supporter search with surge. If you have surge in hand Lapras in bench you can reuse Misty for a supporter of your choice. Seems clunky compared to Lele but Lele's gone. Still would play Dedenne over this. Misty could go in control decks though.

    Night city: Free retreat is nice. Switch a damaged Sabletar could be huge! Other than that I see few uses.

    I had to say that this means you can grab 6 supporters on a single turn, plus PokeGear 3.0

    Lapras: ...
    Misty’s Request: at first, I didn’t connect this to Duckpoke (I’m bad at these connections,
    I’d be a terrible detective and thus hate mystery novels). Either way, the Lapras/Misty/Duckpoke combo seems solid. Get, say, 4 supporters, hit 160. Get 6 and OHKO Pikarom. Get 4 and OHKO Reshizard. Seems pretty good. Other than that, it looks like it’ll be like Illima was in SM base.
    Night City: looks like a strong addition to Greninjark. Too bad that one Zygarde that lets you Cell Connector for 190 w/ Diancie and Fighting Dojo comes out before this does...

    Come to think of it, Misty looks really nervous in that picture.
