Translations for Espeon/Deoxys-GX, Umbreon/Darkrai-GX Decks!

The official Japanese Pokemon TCG website has revealed the contents of the Tag Team decks featuring Espeon & Deoxys-GX and Umbreon & Darkrai-GX!

Like Miracle Twins, the two decks will release in Japan on May 31st.

Several of the cards are reprints, so only the new ones have been translated below. Thanks goes to Bangiras, Tunu, and Arantxa T. for the translations!

The new cards from these decks will be included in our August set, Unified Minds.

    Not much to say about the Pokémon, but the Cherish Ball is giving everyone the hype.
    I’m pretty excited about Hapu, too, but Bill’s Analysis is better.

    I love the character Hapu too. Also I like it better than Bill's because you can select any two and it thins out the deck, and I love thining out decks. If I'm not verging on decking out every game I don't wanna play the deck :p

    Based on my Unified Minds Partial Setlist, we are max for 25+ trainers. I can allow 26 but 27 is near to 30. And we maxed out for 2 Special Energy, so basically confirms that Guzma, Ultra Ball, Choice Band are officially rotated once UNM was legal.

    Outside of Japan parts of the theme decks will most likely be released. Japanese sets and theme decks sometimes also include older cards. For examples check the set list for SM10 and others. Also note that Japanese cards from SM are ordered into block A, B, and C. Ultra Ball and Nest Ball still have the A block label on them despite the fact that they are also available in the new theme decks. This is inteded to make older cards more available to players and does not affect their legality.

    Why won't people ACTUALLY read the posts? It says right there that the new prints will be in Unified Minds, we won't ever get these decks as they stand.

    I really like that Espeon & Deoxys Tag Team. Malamar is still a good card, and it fuels both of those attacks really well.
