    I was thinking for Metal Core Barrier that Genesect-GX could have some fun with it two of them attached make his hp 320 tage team lv hp.

    Green in Smash Bros. Ultimate, in a new ArtFX J figure by Kotobukiya, in Let's Go, a character that looks like her in the Sun/Moon games and now here. I'm happy that she is appearing more nowadays.

    Red appears in a Japanese Pikachu card.

    Yeah but Red's card was just a promo, I meant as in the proper card game itself that's available to everyone. Would be cool to see it happen!

    If the TRs didn't make it into Team Up, and as long as they are still in the A block, then I'm sorry, but no Ultra Ball English reprint here in either when it does get there... Hope for August! If not, bye-bye, Ultra Ball from next standard... :(

    We are going to get the alternate arts as league promos

    It's at least the third card that requires both players to play RPS, so not seeing why it's that surprising.

    SIDENOTE: Rock-Paper-Scissor actually happened at the World's where Mr. Jason plays Team Galactic's Wager

    Wow, I didn't know there are older cards that do the same.
    So my questions are:
    1) What is the difference between doing this and flipping a coin?
    2) What happens if there is a tie in RPS? Do they play again until there is a winner or is it simply counted as a tie?

    There’s actually a page in the rulebook for this.
    You continue playing RPS until a winner can be decided.

    There hasn’t been a time in the entirety of BW or XY where Ultra Ball wasn’t in format. Plus, we do have a Shining Legends Ultra Ball reprint.

    So why playing RPS instead of flipping a coin if the odds of winning are the same? Just to bypass Victini?

    Shining Legends is rotating out, though, presumably, no?

    I have a *really* hard time imagining they won't reprint Ultra Ball in the next set, if not before Worlds as a promo (or in the May set despite all this), then in August right after Worlds... if not, then Mysterious Treasure makes Psychic (and Dragon) decks *way* too powerful, I'd think (as they'd be the only Pokémon you can search for discard).

    I guess Pokémon Communication can ameliorate that some, but if you don't play Psychic or Dragon to first search out, you're very possibly going to be Pokémon-less to play the card.

    I suppose. It’s also a bit of spice to what would be otherwise an unremarkable card.
    True, but if they don’t, it works out. Shining Legends was the only set to have Ultra Ball be reprinted in it, so it would make sense to rotate SUM, GRI, and BUS so Ultra Ball stays in format.

    I... guess? But that would be rotating less than a year's worth, and in particular would leave Zoroark in Standard which, while not quite the meta-defining card it is in Expanded, still seems like a bit much. And would leave CRI in, which is also pretty interesting itself (hi, Buzzwole GX...)

    Great new artwork on the trainer reprints! Hope we get some holo ones in English
     
  17. Liked the Green's Search! Maybe in future expansions one Red or Blue card?

    I guarantee you, that card will look a thousand times better with the FA texture and shine on there.
    Can't wait!
