Beastite from ‘Alter Genesis’ Revealed!

Beastite from SM12 Alter Genesis has been revealed in V Jump magazine! Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translation!

Beastite – Trainer
Item

Pokemon Tool: Attach a Pokemon Tool to 1 of your Pokemon that doesn’t already have a Pokemon Tool attached to it.

The attacks of the Ultra Beast this card is attached to do 10 more damage for each Prize card you’ve taken to your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

You may play as many Item cards as you like during your turn (before your attack).

This is only the third card revealed, despite the set’s September 5th release date.

The card features a new illustrator. Presumably the item is a hunk of rock from Ultra Space (hence the “-ite”).

    I like this. I still play Buzzwole from time to time on PTCGO, despite the deck being dead basically, but this could be a good tool in it.

    (I do wish these and the Ultra Beast cards themselves still had red borders though, Kinda feels like a missed opportunity.)

    Ooooo this is interesting. Blacephalon will have an easier time hitting the numbers it needs on Reshizard

    Actually really really good. Even just +10 after 1 prize can make all the difference. An instant card to put in any Ultra Beast deck.

    don’t know how relavent this really is, a lot of beasts want your opponent to have less than 5 prizes left to begin with, but buzzwole is the only beast coming to mind for me, this takes max sledge hammer from 140 to 160, and I would say yay you ohko dedene, but you hit for weakness on dedene anyway. Don’t know why they would make dojo not count for beasts and then print this card though.

    As if Ultra Beasts needed EVEN more help.

    They had a good track record with stuff like Dojo not helping ultra beasts, but wow, this is better than Choice Band for the late game - you will be making 30, then 40, then 50 extra damage. It certainly won't be a 4-of in decks like Blacephalon, Beast Box and Zapbeasts, but at least 2 copies will help those decks.

    I wonder how it interacts with their GX attacks though - does Celeestela GX attack make it so you do 60 since you make the GX for a boost up to 110? Does Naganadel GX attack count as 3 prizes taken? Does Blacephalon GX count as 1?

    Blacephalon's GX does not count as taking a prize. Naganadel's GX does not add or subtract from the amount of prizes taken.

    Example: My opponent takes 5 prizes. I Nag GX them. He takes 2 more prizes. He has taken 7 prizes even though 2 additional cards were placed down as prizes. Beastite would add 70 damage. Attacks that do ??x for every prize card taken would do ?? x 7.

    Beastite - This helps a lot of UB decks! In a Beast Ring range, free Choice Band or Muscle Band. Blacephalon decks do dump lesser energies in the Lost Zone just to KO TTGXs. 4 energy + Beast Energy + Beast Ring range (3-4 prizes remaining, well. 3 is the exact number you've expect), KO Reshizard, KO MooMoo. 5 Geodudes. The Q is.. are we keeping UBs in SwSh era?

    I'm guessing that for so long as ultra beast cards get printed they will be tagged as "Ultra Beast" for the purpose of play and backwards compatibility even if more support for them doesn't get printed. New ultra beasts years down the road could be busted in expanded with the support that exists for them.

    Maybe because red borders were already used for Team Flare cards??

    Only the two of them though. I just kinda think it'd have been cool if the UB type cards got the same treatment the Plasma mechanic did. That was a really cool little aesthetic nod back then. It's not a huge deal or anything though, I still like the consistent backgrounds the RA GXs have, along with the swooshy texturing for the full arts.
