Black Kyurem from ‘Alter Genesis!’

As we saw on the set’s booster box, a new Black Kyurem will debut in SM12 Alter Genesis. The set will release in Japan on September 5th and then become part of our Cosmic Eclipse set in November. Thanks goes to Tunu for the translation!

Black Kyurem – Water – HP130
Basic Pokemon

[C][C] Blizzard Wings: 30 damage. Discard a Special Energy from your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

[W][W][C][C] Blizzard Dust: 100+ damage. If you have any Stadium card in play, this attack does 100 more damage.

Weakness: Metal (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 3

In case you missed it this morning, we also updated Volcarona-GX’s translation.

Who’s gonna order Blizzard Wings from KFC next time?

    When we get a 1 prize basic primal Groudon reprint, that gets its HP enhanced by a fury belt in expanded or extra damage with a choice band.

    • Black Kyurem - 1st atk, meh! DCE is rotated and most Special Energy post-rotation isn't anything good so makes this thing relevant. 2nd atk is fine. But good against fire decks since you can OHKO it for a single prized Pokémon. But how do we get the energy? Nagaquag and Welder? Its very awkward to accelrate W energy,that's why W isn't anything good right now. 3 Geodudes

    It could be a Colorless GX with all of the Oricorio forms, that would be great for the art.

    This could be an option for non-GX decks, since they get the most value out of that ability. Maybe 2/1 Dedenne/Oricorio with some Cherish Balls. The attacks are stupidly weak for the energy cost, unfortunately.

    • Decidueye - I don't know what I feel with this Decidueye. Sniping 80 to the bench on a stage 2 for 2 energy in a format without DCE. Only good in Expanded with the GX. 2-3 Geodudes

    • Solgaleo - as a tanking card, its fine. Being a stage 2? Its pretty awkward. The main atk KOs Dedenne and most basic GXs but the atk costs sucks. How do we accelerate M energy to it? Plus, the prevalence of Welder makes M decks see less play because Welder makes Fire decks nuts in any way. Well, Metal types do have things like Metal Core Barrier and Metal Goggles for tanking. But then again, prevalence of Fire decks hinders them. 2-3 Geodudes
    • Sylveon - its fine. 3-4 Geodudes
