Sordward and Shielbert – Trainer
Supporter

Choose a Trainer card from your discard pile and ask your opponent if you can put it into your hand. If they say yes, put that card into your hand. If they say no, return that card to your discard pile and draw 3 cards. (Then, give your opponent a freaky haircut. :p)

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

Hatterene V will also be one of the eight promos. It was already revealed in English via our Champion’s Path Collection – Hatterene V Box.

    • Squidward and Sheldon (Sordward and Shielbert) - This is like Togepi from Undaunted. It depends on the opponent if they gonna fool on your tricks which I'm sure they won't.
    • Jolteon - giant ehh??! 2 Geodudes

    I forgot about the Sword and Shield twins until now.

    I wish I kept forgetting.

    Sordward and Shielbert should be at least 5 cards, it have a little bit more chance your opponent agree to give you a trainer instead of letting grab too many cards, instead this card will always be pretty much a draw 3 cards card, at least 4...

    Yeah at this point it feels like Hop with more steps.

    Completely agreed. You'd think they'd stop with the "Draw 3 cards" effect after the 10th freaking time they've put that on a supporter like MAAAN!

    S&S - "You may play as many Supporter cards as you like during your turn (before your attack)."

    This can't be correct?

    If you play it with 0 cards in deck, can your opponent still choose to make you draw 3 cards?

    Geez... I also keep forgetting that Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and their doofy hair exist. Like, I know characters' hair designs have been looking more... gelatinous? plastic? since X&Y, but Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum take the cake. (Maybe closely followed by Olympia, the Psychic Gym Leader in X&Y. I don't know what that hair is supposed to be...)

    I never thought of describing the newer characters hair as plastic-y but yknow what? That’s explains exactly it, it’s very toylike, just look at someone like Piers. Wow, I completely forgot about Olympia. She does have some wack hair too now that I think of it.

    It's our 3rd one. They have printed this Eevee multiple times with different artwork to match the corresponding Eeveelution.

    It should also be pointed out that this Eevee and Jolteon are illustrated by the winner of last year's Illustrator Grand Prix contest.
