First ‘Cosmic Eclipse’ TAG TEAMS Revealed!

The first two cards from Cosmic Eclipse were just revealed at Worlds — Togepi & Cleffa & Igglybuff-GX (#143/236) and Arceus & Dialga & Palkia-GX (#156/236).

Both cards will be part of Japan’s SM12 Alter Genesis set, which will release on September 6th.

Cosmic Eclipse will release in America on November 1st and will be the last Sun & Moon block set.

The two sets have not been publicly named or revealed by Pokemon yet.

Togepi & Cleffa & Igglybuff-GX – Fairy – HP240
Basic Pokemon (Tag Team)

[Y][Y][C] Rolling Panic: 120+ damage. Flip a coin until you get tails. This attack does 30 more damage for each heads.

[Y][Y]+ Supreme Puff GX: Take another turn after this one. (Skip the between-turns step.) If this Pokemon has at least 14 extra [Y] Energy attached to it (in addition to this attack’s cost), your opponent shuffles all of their Benched Pokemon and all cards attached to them into their 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: Metal (x2)
Resistance: Darkness (-20)
Retreat: 2


Arceus & Dialga & Palkia-GX – Dragon – HP280
Basic Pokemon (Tag Team)

[W][M][C] Ultimate Ray: 150 damage. Search your deck for up to 3 basic Energy cards and attach them to your Pokemon in any way you like. Then, shuffle your deck.

[M]+ Altered Creation GX: For the rest of this game, your Pokemon attacks do 30 more damage to your opponent’s Active Pokemon (before applying Weakness and Resistance). If this Pokemon has at least 1 extra [W] Energy attached to it (in addition to this attack’s cost), when your opponent’s Active Pokemon is Knocked Out by damage from those attacks, take 1 more Prize card. (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: Fairy (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 3

    Baby Fairies-Pure meme.
    Dragons will be OP in any Metal/Water decks that come along, although those types aren't great right. Perhaps could see play in future?

    I love how they had the opportunity to burn through three Babies at once but they went with two Babies who have been printed since the Babies returned this year and also Togepi who isn't bound by the same rules as the rest of the Babies in the TCG. Instead of say, Mime Jr. and Azurill who cover the same shared type on this card. lol Pokemon gonna Pokemon.

    Why did they make its first attack so bad? The 2nd is good, but no one is ever getting 16 energy on anything, especially Fairy Energy. It doesn't even outright when the game for that price...you still have to KO the active Pokemon during the next turn. It's a shame we got this instead of Ditto & Smeargle (probably), but it's a fun concept nonetheless.

    Dialga, Palkia, and Arceus is actually nuts. If we had more Water and Steel support, it'd be great, but sadly, that's not the case, so I don't see it working. If we get any good acceleration for Water and/or Metal Energy, I could see decks being built around this, and M&M decks incorporating it. The first attack makes Turbo Strike look weak, and this card can be searched by Treasure, unlike Solgaleo. Altered Creation means you can potentially snipe 2 Dedenne with Venom Shot to win the game. Yeah, I really like this card, but we even lost Aqua Patch so I don't think there's a place for it now.

    >Creation Trio gets Tag Team.

    >Giratina: "Am I a joke to you?"

    Memes aside, the baby TTGX is jank (14+2 energies, wtaf...), and they just removed Arceus' limiter, because that GX+ attack (perma Choice Band plus Prize Accel) is actually stupid.

    I love it. Keep up the good work Ptcgi, you insane f*cks.

    Tbh, it's just because those are the 3 iconic Fairy babies, and they're all "puffs". Azurill fits the theme but I imagine it's because it's not as popular and also is blue instead of pink and white. I think they're going for a lot of those kinds of duos and trios for the last set.

    Yes I can interpret that. But it really goes to show how they have no foresight for anything because they could have made those previous Cleffa and Igglybuff cards into some other baby Pokemon instead.

    I already don't like tag teams, but really? The second Fairy tag team is three babies? Wow, y'all really got your best minds on it, Creatures Inc...

    Let us make the tag teams. Then we'll make actual good ones like Diancie and Mega Mawile, Xerneas and Tapu Lele..you know, actually good Pokemon.

    I'm loving that Dialga Palkia Arceus TTGX. That GX is nuts good. And we have N's resolve for energy acceleration. Although we can all tell that there's a pattern when releasing TTGXs. They'll release a pokemon/trainer card that goes along with it to make it better.

    Because hey sometimes people like other Pokemon than the same handful of Legendaries and Starters. I would have picked some other Babies for this TTGX for representation, but people who like Baby Pokemon just went over a decade without Babies in the TCG at all, so maybe they like the diversity.

    So that leaves Fighting and Metal as the remaining types with only 1 Tag Team. I predict SM12a might have a Fossil Tag Team (Armaldo & Cradily PLEASE), Celesteela & Kartana (& Stakataka?), and 1 good old fashioned regular GX to cap off the GX era.

    I don't mind the babies chosen for this Tag Team, but in retrospect if they wanted to give some love to as many neglected Pokemon as possible the SM10 Cleffa could've easily been Mime Jr. or Azurill and the promo Igglybuff could've been Azurill or Mantyke instead.

    Well, I guess we're getting fairy acceleration in Cosmic Eclipse.

    Finally a new Arceus, AND GX! but I am quite disappointed in that design, they could make it so much better than that.

    Igglybuff and Cleffa are two of my favorite Baby Pokemon personally. I know they've been done before, but I like that they're putting them on a big fancy Tag Team card. It's a really cute card, too.

    Card art for the creation trilogy isn't the best, but the potential for that card is amazing.
