Turrfield, Burning Scarf, Full Bucket from ‘VMAX Rising!’

The official Japanese Pokemon TCG website has revealed three new Trainer cards from the upcoming VMAX Rising set! This will be the first Sword & Shield mini-set and will release on February 7th.

Turrfield – Trainer
Item

Once during each player’s turn, that player may search their deck for a [G] Evolution Pokemon, reveal it, and put it into their hand. Then, that player shuffles their deck.

This card stays in play when you play it. Discard this card if another Stadium card comes into play. If another card with the same name is in play, you can’t play this card.


Burning Scarf – Trainer
Item

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

If the [R] Pokemon this card is attached to is your Active Pokemon and is damaged by an opponent’s attack, the Attacking Pokemon is now Burned.

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


Full Bucket – Trainer
Item

Search your deck for 2 [W] Energy, reveal them, and put them into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.

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

Clearer images of the VMAX Pokemon from yesterday were also revealed. They were translated correctly, but now we have their HP!

    • Rillaboom VMAX - Although adding an evo card would be a mess in a Rillaboom deck like that, that VMAX is worth of an investment. 280 for 4 and Rillaboom can get it rolling is GOOD! The question is.. the looping of this atk because OK, you may discard 3 to do 280, how will you recover the energy back to do 280 again? Baby Cinderace #HeyNick! can loop doing 190 because of the ability, I dunno on this Rillaboom, maybe using 2 Fishing Rods? 1 Brock's Grit? I dunno, it'll be inconsistent. 4 Geodudes Run Weakness Guard since that drummer ape is still weak to Welder
    • Cinderace VMAX - Ok, 320 HP is a lot for Cinderace VMAX. Assuming you are not facing a Water deck and Cinder can tank the hit. Assuming Cinder receives 230 from Reshizard, 1 Welder can make Cinder hit for 260 and not even do a KO a Reshizard back (no Vital Band. Vital Band will KO it anyway) there are always downsides to this. 3 for 170 is enough to KO basic GXs and Mini Vs, but not enough to impress me (Burn doesn't count!) 4 Geodudes
    • Inteleon VMAX - 60 for 1 energy, KOs Snom, KOs evolving Basics. 160 for 3, fine! Don't like it. Without the weakness thing, this is basically 2HKO, which sometimes I don't like. You only KO non-Vs which is not worth of using QuagMoth. Sorry guys, I'm just too negative today. 3-4 Geodudes
    • Turfield Gym - Good for Grass Decks! 4 Geodudes
    • Water Bucket - Good for decks using Frosmoth! 5 Geodudes
    • Burning Scarf - Special Conditions are being ignored in the meta, why do we care about that? 3 Geodudes

    I like Turrfield. Any support for other types besides fire is refreshing to see.

    I don't get why the scarf has to work on Fire Pokemon only and the Bucket only finds Water Energy. Feels like pointless limiting of effects.

    The regular V cards aren’t our English promos because the artwork is different so we may get these versions in our SwSh 2 set

    Rebel Clash is the name of SWSH2. Just FYI. I agree with you though.

    Rillaboom is easily the best one imo. It'll be a 1-of in a Rillaboom (if that's good, the idea of it being good is my theory) deck as something to surprise your opponent (like Koko-GX in Vikabulu and Vikaray and like Bulu-GX in Vikaray).

    Looks like Pokémon TCG revealed a new Slosher weapon for Splatoon.

    Jokes aside, Full Bucket is pretty much tailor-made for Frosmoth. Just keep pouring buckets of Water energy on your pokémon and douse your opponent.

    I think it makes it easier to balance the game, in particular with a thought towards expanded, when the effects are more limited for the stronger cards.

    Bucket is objectively worse than Professor's Letter and Scarf's ability won't break no metagame.
    It's obviously made so Rillaboom's deck has a Grass-focused card, Cinderace's deck has a Fire-focused card and Inteleon's deck has a Water-focused card. And while none of them are much to write home about, the ability to burn your opponent on damage is somewhat interesting and could find it's place in niche/casual decks.

    Every TCG has archetype-specific cards. It's so that certain types are better at certain things and to prevent every deck from looking basically the same.

    Pokemon TCG is a really bad game to make an example out of in that case, since there's almost no correlation between types and playstyles/abilities.
    Scarf is not a card that creates an archetype, it's a card that supports one. There's a couple of cards (mostly Grass) that work off the amount of Special Conditions an opposing Pokemon has. It would not make them playable, but it would give them an interesting option.

    Because V cards are not dynamaxed. VMax cards are either dynamaxed or gigantamaxed.

    That Cinderace is so damn OP. As if fire decks needed even better cards.

    Vs arent dynamaxed. Vs are regular pokemon. They max with v max, hence the name and the red clouds on the card, along with it saying that its maxed.

    But Fire-types are typically the source of burns. And there are some aspects that are more common with certain types in this TCG, such as Grass using special conditions as you pointed out.
