Dialga and Hero’s Medal from ‘Legendary Hearbeat!’

Dialga – Metal – HP130
Basic Pokemon

[C] Clockback: Attach up to 2 [M] Energy from your discard pile to 1 of your Pokemon.

Hero’s Medal – Trainer
Item

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

The maximum HP of the Pokemon VMAX this card is attached to is reduced by 100. If this Pokemon VMAX is Knocked Out by damage from an opponent’s attack, they take 1 less Prize card. You can’t attach this card to a Pokemon if it would be Knocked Out upon attaching it.

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

    • Dialga - better than Duraludon for Energy accel? I love that. 3-4 Geodudes
    • Hero's Medal - Its Island Challenge Amulet but only on VMAXs. It has the restriction that prevents KOing VMAXs... just like to Jirachi EX that leads to the amulet ban in Expanded. I love this. This negates the single prizes so that you can catch up to the game. 4 Geodudes

    Dialga’s an alternate Duraludon which is nice, and I’m loving that warriors medal is trial amulet for Vmaxs. Good stuff.

    Hero medal is going to be big. But how big will depend on how much the 100 HP means. Most get put in range for a zacian KO, or eternatus KO, or a lugia KO... I don't think it will see more than 1 off in the lists. VMax survivability is the only reason they are so strong currently. However, vs 2 shot decks, like pika and Cinderace (those hitting around the 180/190 average), its a great card. And single prize attackers too... I just don't think it will be as good, especially when island challenge amulet wasn't as picked up.

    The Dialga is a very nice addition to metal decks allowing you to accelerate 2 energy for a colorless. It appears that TPCI learned from their island challenge amulet mistake and made this only for V max. Thats very nice but if you think about something like Snorlax V max still having 240 HP after this it gets kind of scary.

    They kinda did, but it's not like Hero's Medal NOT having that clause would honestly do much. 100 HP VMAX? lol

    And anyways, it can just come down to sequencing. If I really did wanna KO my own say Eternatus VMAX or whoever for whatever reason, I can just attach Hero's Medal then use like Switch while Spikemuth is in play and that'd bring it in range to be KO'd by Spikemuth/Hero's Medal. Something like that.

    This set looks awesome can't wait to see what some of the cards do. Seeing Xerneas as a psychic type makes me sad. Rip fairy.

    One of the Supporters (Beauty?) is a draw 2 that can be used on the 1st turn for the player going 1st. Curious if we'll ever see other weak Supporters that can be used T1 going 1st.

    Trumbeak is the big winner from this batch of reveals. Already translated it and it's something like follows:

    "When this card evolves, check the top 3 cards from your deck. Attach any number of basic energy cards you find there to pokemon you control in any way you like".

    With Oranguru and Scoop Up net both in format, you have a consistent way to attach at least one extra energy per turn to whatever you control, and that may be relevant for a lot of decks that don't have something like Rose's or Welder to load their attacks.

    I was hoping that there would be some surprises for the amazing rare cards not yet revealed.

    Regardless, still a cool set.

    Trumbeak is your answer to how you accelerate energy onto Amazing Rare pokemon.

    Genesect: Techno Buster > Techno Blast, its signature move in the video games. That's the only translation change.

    I still think Magearna was supposed to be a robotic recreation of Diancie. :p

    The cost is too high for it to be anything other than a meme tier deck. You need to be facing a multiprize deck - ok, the meta is full of that - and then put MMCC on it for the KO. CC is covered by Twin Energy, but you need to hard attach the other two energies, use Saucer, Turbo Charge on Pineco, or Trumbeak. I'm sure someone will try to build that deck but it seems like it needs too much setup to get rolling.

    Robotic diancie can hit for 170 against eternatus with an easy to fulfill attack cost and the advantage of being a basic single prizer

    by the way togekiss vmax is classified as basic when it shouldnt be
