New SWSH Rayquaza Promo, Resistance Changes Coming to SWSH Era! By: Water Pokémon Master Posted 1 year ago to TCG 18 comments Those who purchase Japan’s upcoming “V Starter Decks” will receive a holo Rayquaza promo from participating retailers. It is card #003/S-P. Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translation! Rayquaza – Colorless – HP130 Basic Pokemon [C][C] Dark Clamp: 30 damage. The Defending Pokemon can’t retreat during your opponent’s next turn. [C][C][C] Power Blast: 120 damage. Discard an Energy from this Pokemon. Weakness: Lightning (x2) Resistance: Fighting (-30) Retreat: 2 As you can see, Rayquaza’s Resistance is -30. The last time Resistance was -30 was during the EX era in the mid-2000s. Starting with the Diamond & Pearl era, the amount changed to -20 and has been that way ever since. This news is in addition to the news that Lightning Pokemon aren’t automatically resistant to Metal anymore and you can’t play a Supporter card on your first turn if you’re the first player. What other changes will be coming to the Sword & Shield era?
