Brand New Pikachu VMAX Releasing in ‘CoroCoro!’

A brand new Pikachu VMAX will be included in the February edition of CoroCoro magazine! It will release on January 15th in Japan. The card will be promo #265/S-P. (Update: Accidentally said “CoroCoro Ichiban” when this story was first published, but it’s just regular CoroCoro.)

Pikachu VMAX – Lightning – HP310
VMAX Pokemon – Evolves from Pikachu V

[L] Charge Tail: 30 damage. Attach up to 3 [L] Energy from your discard pile to 1 of your Pokemon.

Last month, we revealed CoroCoro would be releasing their own special “Start 100 Decks” featuring a brand new Pikachu V and Eevee V. The latest edition of the magazine has announced how fans will be able to purchase the decks. There will be a serial code in the February issue that readers can use to enter a lottery. 100,000 people will then be selected to purchase the decks.

Pikachu V – Lightning – HP200
Basic Pokemon

[L][L][C] Pikadrive: 200 damage. This Pokemon can’t attack during your next turn.

When your Pokemon V is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1


Eevee V – Colorless – HP200
Basic Pokemon

[C] Tackle: 30 damage.

[C][C][C] V Brave: 80+ damage. If your opponent’s Active Pokemon is a Pokemon V, this attack does 80 more damage.

When your Pokemon V is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 1

The new Pikachu VMAX is a promo, but this means we’ll still see at least some VMAX Pokemon after VMAX Climax. It hasn’t been confirmed that VMAX Pokemon have been replaced by VSTAR Pokemon. However, most fans assume they’ll be phased out soon.

Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translations!

Art's cool but why are they wasting every last possible Vmax slot? Like, do the people planning this game want to not get all new forms down as cards??

Honestly I am still wondering whether they're going be doing a vmax/vstar for hatterene, machamp and melmetal. We never got a Mega Pinsir EX.
