Flygon-GX Fully Revealed, Azurill, Sunflora from “Alter Genesis!”

Flygon-GX has been fully revealed, along with new Sunflora and Azurill cards from SM12 Alter Genisis! The set will release in Japan on September 5th, then become part of our Cosmic Eclipse set in November. This is the first Azurill card since Diamond & Pearl, released all the way back in 2007, and the first Sunflora card since HeartGold & SoulSilver from 2010. Thanks goes to Bangiras for translations!

Sunflora – Grass – HP90
Stage 1 – Evolves from Sunkern

[C][C] Sun Power: During your next turn, ignore all Energy in the attack costs of each of your [G] and [R] Pokemon in play (including Pokemon put in play during that turn).

[G][C][C] Solar Beam: 80 damage.

Weakness: Fire (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1


Flygon-GX – Fighting – HP240
Stage 2 – Evolves from Vibrava

Ability: Sandstorm Protection
As long as this Pokemon is your Active Pokemon, any damage done to your Pokemon from your opponent’s attacks is reduced by 30 (after applying Weakness and Resistance).

[F][F][F] Desert Hurricane: 120+ damage. If there is any Stadium card in play, this attack does 120 more damage. Then, discard that Stadium card.

[F][F][F] Sonic Edge GX: 220 damage. This attack’s damage isn’t affected by any effects on your opponent’s Active Pokemon. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

When your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Grass (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 2


Azurill – Fairy – HP60
Basic Pokemon

Ability: Rapid Charge
Once during your turn (before your attack), you may flip a coin. If heads, attach a basic Energy card from your discard pile to your Active Pokemon. If you use this Ability, your turn ends.

Weakness: none
Resistance: none
Retreat: 0

    Flygon is just a stage 2 primal groudon

    Is it just me, or does a non OHKO or game disrupting GX attack pretty much seem worthless at this point? I mean, unless it completely resets play or throws a huge curve ball into the match, why even play it?

    Flygon seems good.
    It has Red and Blue to accelerate and diancie and dojo to do extra damage.
    I believe dojo works before you discard it in the same way you can lost zone the beast energy on blace and still get the +30. Judges?
    It's like a non-tag team GX that hits tag team #s and has tag team HP.
    Prize trades will be good.
    You will have to get through 3 270+ hp monsters.

    How would sunflora work with reshizards GX attack?
    Would it give only 3 or 6?

    isnt this just a creative way to say 'flygon gx is a weak card because it's a stage 2 with a high attack cost'

    Yes, any effect that is on the Pokémon when the attack begins will carry on. The stadium is actually discarded at the end of the attack phase well after the stadium's effect worked.

    Rare Candy only goes so far, especially with Ultra Ball out of rotation at the moment. You still need the basic in play to survive a turn, and a specific Pokemon and the specific item of Rare Candy, while Basic decks only need the basics. Also I would argue that Guzma out of the formation is more relevant for running stage 2's than Trashalanche.

    It’s not that we don’t have any stage 2 support, it’s that, with almost no Pokémon search options, and things like cherish ball, stage 2s can’t keep up.

    Idk, it says ignore, so I think that doesn’t count toward the Reshiram and Charizard’s “in addition to.”

    Hm.

    I'd say "based off Karate Belt's text" but that only says it costs one less Fighting energy.

    That's... gonna be a tricky one to figure out, for sure.

    Sun Power > Solar Power (an ability that the Sunkern line and some other Pokemon get in the games) on Sunflora.

    Damn lycanroc is incredible and can be very useful in the current meta, especially with pikarom or MewMew decks

    Lycanroc can also ignore de cost for the attack if the opponent has a pokemon EX in play. Think they miss it when writing
