SM11 Mega Sableye & Tyranitar-GX, Slowpoke & Psyduck-GX, Jirachi-GX, Weavile-GX!

We don’t have images yet, but the next issue of CoroCoro magazine has revealed some surprising Tag Team cards!

SM11 Miracle Twins will feature a new Mega Sableye & Tyranitar-GX as well as a new Slowpoke & Psyduck-GX!

This will be the first time we’ve seen a Mega Evolution in the TCG since 2016’s Evolutions, which was during the XY era. Mega Sableye was never featured as a Pokemon-EX, so now it’ll get a (shared) card!

Slowpoke & Psyduck-GX will be the first Tag Team card that features two unevolved Pokemon. The card will have 250 HP. Both are dimwitted Pokemon, so it should make for a hilarious card.

Additionally, CoroCoro has revealed that the Espeon & Deoxys-GX Starter Deck will come with a new Jirachi-GX with 160 HP. The Umbreon & Darkrai-GX deck will come with a new Weavile-GX with 200 HP.

We will update this news story with images as soon as we receive them. Stay tuned!

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

Thanks goes to Tunu and Law T. for the translations!

    Yay, a mega!

    TyBleye is just too underwhelming because we have no good dark energy acceleration.


    Slowpoke and Psyduck is gonna be interesting.

    Wow a Mega huh? Only way I can see this card working is with a dark type beast ring spam and Nanu switch.

    Weak to fire cards will only rise if they get some ability to turn their weakmess into a -20 resistance. Something like rain weather or primodial sea in games.
    Fire types always hit for huge numbers and this new blacephalon is the true ban for grass/metal(not even putting reshizard in this).

    OMG THAT GIGAFALL ATTACK!!!! 10 energies to make the most powerful effect i've ever seen? I'll surely try! I'm sure this collection is coming with plethora of dark support for energizing.
    The first attack is doom for zoroark.

    I really don't see how anyone can put 5 dark on it. Not to mention 10. Beast ring Nanu? Clunky and slow.

    It will be so strong in a Turbo Dark deck in expanded :eek:
    It adds a win condition to the deck (mill) and hitting for 210 is so good.

    Yeah stacking energy on this thing balances it out, as beast ring can't be used (Not a ultra beast.) I really can't see a way to stack just dark on it, but other energy stacking cards could be used for the 5 extra energy with the gx attack as it doesnt specifically state dark energy.

    That could be 9/8 TTGX in Unified Minds and we would expect 8, I wonder how will they insert it. We will get Trevenant TTGX Box but we haven't see the card yet.

    I'm not giving my reviews on those cards yet, but Sableye Tar is nutsly expensive.

    Well, there's Cherrim from Ultra Prism. Pair that with Venusaur, Egglet Gx, Tsareena, Meganium and you've got a nigh invulnerable troll deck.

    I think they probably meant non legendary/non evolving basics

    Only way it's getting powered is greninja zoroark gx attack for inincaroar, then Nanu. Far too difficult. It would be just peachy is Pokemon tried to make a few more competitive cards each set, instead of one chase card that is above and beyond.

    Yes! I was hoping for Megas to return in tag teams. Prepare for a $500 RR M Charizard X & M Charizard Y tag team card.

    Mega Sableye might have never gotten the EX it deserved, BUT, I think it's pretty cool that it's going to get some form of love.

    dark will need a serious boost in energy acceleration in sm11 for that to be in anyway viable.

    Am excited about weavile gx. Hope it's good.
