Unreleased Flareon, Eevee, Adversity Gloves Promos from Postponed Gym Tournaments!

Due to coronavirus concerns, Pokemon cancelled several tournaments in Japan through March. This included the next round of Pokemon Gym tournaments, which would have been held February 29th through March 19th. The tournaments have been taking place for years and award participants a booster pack containing one of several promo cards.

Nevertheless the promos for the postponed Gym tournaments have leaked to the net. They include a new Eevee, Flareon, a new Tool card called Adversity Gloves, the Polteageist V we’re receiving in America on May 1st, and alternate art promos of cards releasing in Rebellious Clash.

It’s unknown when Japan will hold the next round of Gym tournaments. They stated they will consider restarting them on March 20th, but there is no official news yet. Pokemon seems to have sent the promos out to stores as scheduled, so perhaps they will hold them soon.

Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translations!

Eevee – Colorless – HP60
Basic Pokemon

[C] Signs of Evolution: Search your deck for a Pokemon that evolves from Eevee, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.

Flareon – Fire – HP110

Adversity Gloves – Trainer

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

If your opponent’s Active Pokemon is the same type as the Weakness of the Pokemon this card is attached to, the attacks of this Pokemon do 30 more damage to your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

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

    Adversity Gloves looks like a fun card, possibly even one that can flip "bad" matchups on its head.
  4. zigzag501 Samurott V please!!!


    Gloves for Rillaboom Vmax doesn’t seem like the worst idea. But I doubt they’ll see play unless something is weak to metal/fire and can’t OKOH without this.
  5. zigzag501 Samurott V please!!!


    I sure hope not! Especially Rebel Clash prerealses coming in a bit over a month.

    I am glad that the "eeveelution" topic is back. I'm just focusing on and also extremely glad that it is not an ability this generation.
