Solgaleo & Lunala-GX from ‘Dream League,’ Features Lillie!

The first card from SM11b Dream League has been revealed in CoroCoro magazine! Thanks goes to Arantxa T. for the translation!

Solgaleo & Lunala-GX – Psychic – HP270
Basic Pokemon (TAG TEAM)

[P][P][P][C] Cosmic Burn: 230 damage. This Pokemon can’t use Cosmic Burn during your next turn.

[P][P][C]+ Light of the Goddess: 200 damage. If you played “Lillie’s Best Effort” from your hand during this turn, during your opponent’s next turn, prevent all effects of attacks, including damage, done to each of your Pokemon. (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: Psychic (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2

This is the first Tag Team card that has a GX attack with no additional effect for having more Energy attached to the Pokemon. The GX attack just has a “regular” effect despite the + in the Energy cost. Strange, but maybe they kept the + for consistency’s sake?

As posted several months ago, Dream League will release in Japan on August 2nd. It will contain 49 cards (excluding secret rares). The set’s cards will be included in our Cosmic Eclipse set in November.

The set’s booster pack indicated the set would feature human Trainers. We can already see this in the artwork of Solgaleo & Lunala-GX, not to mention its attack references a new Lillie Supporter. I wonder if the set is to promote the new Pokemon Masters game as well?

Thanks goes to @azumarugao_kame for the image above!

    This is also the first Tag Team regular art not to be illustrated by Matsuhiro Arita, which feels...rather strange, to say the least

    Still, seeing Lillie in the artwork, as well as the reference to a new Lillie supporter, more than makes up for it in my book!

    Funny how that GX attack has nothing on Keldeo-GX.

    Aren't Solgaleo and Lunala supposed to be in Alter Genesis as well? Guess we're doubling up for Cosmic Eclipse!

    Supposedly we're getting Solgaleo & Lunala & Ultra Necrozma-GX: https://www.pokebeach.com/2019/06/a...e-tag-team-trios-and-a-new-tag-team-supporter

    But the fact we're also getting Dialga & Palkia & Arceus-GX in the same set calls that into question (unless the set has two Tag Team trios). Waiting to see if the Japanese sell sheet erred.

    Interesting that the GX move has no additional effect based on energy attached like every Tag Team shown yet, but it can be argued that having played the Supporter card counts as the extra condition to be met.

    Maybe Lillie's Best Effort have something to do with energy ??

    • Solgaleo & Lunala TTGX - Its a classic OHKO on non-TTGXs that can get used of Malamar. Plus, its typing is getting some advantages when it comes to supports. We want to know what this Lillie card does if it is worth playing over Cynthia and some stuff. For now.... 4 Tentative Geodudes. If that Lillie is flat out bad, the score might be 3-4 since the immunity GX atk is far better to some like Mewtwo GX but the supporter is underwhelming and not worthy to use.

    First main Tag Team GX that isn't drawn by Mitsuhiro Arita (not referring to the alt FAs)

    Strange there's no Arita art for this, but a good looking card aesthetically. But this looks like it means there's going to probably be N with Reshiram and Zekrom GX, and that has me excited as a gen 5 freak.

    Pretty sure that the "+" refers to the fact that there's an additional requirement that yields an additional effect - it doesn't have to be energy. As it was stated in the "Trainer Tag Team" announcement, their relationship to Pokemon Tag Teams will be additional effects for meeting additional requirements. It just so happened that, until this point, these requirements have been related to extra energy.

    I think this Lillie's Best Effort is going to be an OP prism star supporter with the condition of

    "It can only be use if you are having # energy in play"
    like the unbroken bond Volcanion's second attack

    then the + sign on the attack is kinda make sense
    it's like team effort kind of card, everyone have some energy on and the gx attack protects everyone

    and the N with Zekrom and Reshiram will be something like
    "It can only be use if your opponent are having # energy in play"
    you know, because N loves to f*ck up your opponent

    Yeah, that's my takeaway from this too. And it's nice to see it be something other than just extra energy. Just have to hope Lillie's new card is good!

    Heck yeah, we were right. So if this exists then we're getting Zekrom and Reshiram with N in the art, yeah? Maybe Ghetsis with Black and White Kyurem.

    Although, i am VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY upset we're not getting any Rainbow Rocket cards. I don't understand how they didn't so a single one... Kinda ridiculous.

    That would work, except Prisim Stars are done. They aren't making any more.

    I think the GX plus means theres an optional additional optional effect
