New Plates

New plates have been added to the shop:

[R] Tropical Energy (Cost: 1)

Any special conditions are removed from your Grass, Flying, and Bug-type Pokemon. During this duel, the effects of Abilities that allow one to respin or force respins in battle are nullified for the battle opponents of your Grass, Flying, and Bug-type Pokemon. Your turn ends.

[R] Phantom Energy (Cost: 1)

During this duel, your Ghost-type Pokemon can move over Pokemon affected by special conditions when using a MP move. In addition, when one or more of your Ghost-type Pokemon are among those surrounding an opposing Pokemon, if there are three or more opposing Pokemon on the field or bench with the same name as the surrounded Pokemon, remove the surrounded Pokemon from the game. Your turn ends.

These new plates are now available in Recommended Boosters:

[UC] Sticky Grass (Cost: 1)

Select on of your Grass-type Pokemon on the field. While that Pokemon is on the field, the battle opponents of that Pokemon cannot respin. Spin-again effects are treated as single spins only.

[UC] Concentrated Fertilizer (Cost: 1)

Select 1 of your Grass-type Pokemon on the field or bench. For this turn, that Pokemon gains ★+1. It also gains damage +20.

Time Booster (Orange)

Time Booster (Orange) are now available again by winning duels in League Matches or from Locked Boosters. The booster is guaranteed to hold Grass or Poison-type figures and will be available until April 26.

Figure Stat Balance Adjustment

[EX] Venusaur

  • Added the Chemical Pollen Ability

We’ve given [EX] Venusaur the Chemical Pollen Ability, which gives MP -1 to all Pokemon affected by Poison or Noxious while this Pokemon is on the field. [EX] Venusaur really shines when paired with Pokemon that can inflict Poison or Noxious on the opposing Pokemon. Note that this effect is not cumulative. For example, if you have two [EX] Venusaur, the affected Pokemon will not get MP -2.

[R] Drapion

  • Changed Toxic to Venom Whip and increased its wheel piece size.
  • Changed Bite to Noxious Fang 50.
  • Increased Cross Poison 60 to Cross Poison 70.
  • Decreased the wheel piece size of Miss.

While [R] Drapion was a figure with characteristics including the Battle Armor ability and an attack that inflicted Noxious, its capabilities were set at a low level. We have now comprehensively powered it up with the Toxic Attack and switched to a new ★★ purple attack, Venom Whip, which can inflict Noxious on a Pokemon that is 1 or 2 steps away. We also raised its damage values and decreased the wheel piece size of its Miss.

[UC] Bulbasaur

  • Increased the wheel piece size of Poison Power.
  • Changed Vine Whip 30 to Seed Bomb 50, and increased its wheel piece size.
  • Decreased the wheel piece size of Miss.

Along with the adjustments to [EX] Venusaur, we have also powered up [UC] Bulbasaur slightly. While it still has the characteristically large wheel piece size of its Miss, we have slightly powered up its capability to inflict special conditions on the opponent.

[UC] Weezing

  • Increased the ★s for Poison Gas (★->★★).
  • Increased Sludge Bomb 40 to Sludge Bomb 50
  • Decreased the wheel piece size of Miss

[UC] Weezing, with its characteristic Sludge Bomb (which inflicts Poison on all Pokemon within 2 steps of it), makes for fun duels. Now, by comprehensively powering up that capability, we can expect it to begin to perform well in League Matches.
