    Hmm.. so does anyone know if this goes straight to the bench, or is this some sort of evolutionary type thing?

    I wonder if there will be any other psychic tag teams or will this be the only one?

    Genesect and Beedrill

    I think alakazam and mewtwo would be too overpowered. But you are right. Mewtwo and alakazam would be really awesome. While we are hoping maybe they will make Mewtwo and Deoxys.

    I'm a little sad that Gengar won't be getting his own GX card yet, but I'm still excited. I wonder if Tag Team GXs will be too gimmicky to actually work competitively though?

    I'm sorry? You said too much CG going on? Look at the Pikachu & Zekrom card closely. That's hand-drawn artwork by Mitsuhiro Arita, not a CG artist. So quite frankly, as a collector and as someone who loves traditional artwork over CG, this makes me far more interested in Tag Team GX's than most other GX (and EX) cards ever have. (It is also an interesting concept for the TCG itself.)

    The card will be most likely weak to dark, as both are ghost types in the game, and gengar at least is weak to dark (its neutral against mimikyu cuz fairy)

    Well, would have to take that back than (I didn't look at the close up because it just looked ugly, My bad). You're right, definitely not CGI and a lot better, however I still think the card is way to busy and a bit cheap looking.. Maybe just not my style.

    However I do agree that if these cards are indeed all drawn, that promises something, and, as I stated above, I also like this new concept because it does give room for some interesting artworks! Thanks for the notification.

    No problem! Looking too busy and therefore not appealing is totally understandable. But if it looked bad because it's CG, I had to say something! Ha ha.

    I do wonder how these will look, as well. I feel like Gengar and Mimikyu should look less busy, but at this point who knows. I'm also curious if Mitsuhiro Arita will be the only artist working on the Tag Team GX's or if there will be others. If I recall correctly, he was the artist who made the secret rare EX's in the XY BREAK era. So part of me thinks it might just be him, but it would be neat to see others too.

    IMO this is way more appealing than the Pikachu and Zekrom one, however I hope this doesn't rule out the possibility of SM9 being an Unova focused set.

    Yeah, I deserved that haha. I really don't like CGI so when something isn't, and I hate on it for that reason, I have to be called out on it ; )

    Interesting information by the way. Now I am kind of warming up to SM9, mostly because of curiosity : p (I still don't expect much art-wise, but I have hope now). I did like the secret rares from the XY break era somewhat (especially that Steam Siege Gardevoir), a bit busy, but stylish. I have a soft spot for that old-school Ken Sugimori art-style so things get too busy for my taste quickly. Anyway, let's hope for something good!

    That Gardivior is probably my favorite EX-full art they made in that block, they really nailed the balance there IMO.

    This is our psychic type tag team. By the time sun and moon is done with, there is only going to have been enough time and sets for 1 of each type to have a tag team.
