Pokemon Fusion Strike
A lot of Pokemon fans are getting ready for the new Pokemon Fusion Strike set that will be released on November 12th which is actually a month and a half away. This is a pre-order guide and we want to take a little bit of a start before the release.
So, let’s talk about the details we’ve got so far.
Review of Pokemon Fusion Strike Set
We must confess that the Pokemon Fusion Strike Set is decorated with a hint of purple and pink pokemon with the fusion strike style often having attacks that focus on teamwork and reinforce the idea of strength in numbers as Fusion Strike Pokemon generally benefit when other pokemon with this battle style are in play.
In addition, fusion strike style appears on trainer and special energy cards which tend to assist pokemon of that particular battle style and allow players to build a fusion strike style deck. They have confirmed 25 fusion strike cards, including UV max, Genesect v, and Hoopa v, all of which you had already seen.
The Genesect card allows you until you’ve got a hand equal to the number of fusion pokemon you’ve got in play once per turn, per genocide, it is not limited to once per turn like some other abilities like krobat for istance are.
So, a nice little example there of how these fusion pokemon are going to benefit from other fusion pokemon, and yes that does mean that if you’ve got six pokemon out and they’re all fusion and four of them are genesect, you can’t draw until you’ve got six hards in your hand four times during your turn which is draw power the other types of decks just don’t have.
Now, they have also confirmed 20 pokemon v and 13 full art pokemon v, 8 pokemon v-max, 20 trainer cards, seven full art supporter cards, and one special energy card. This is interesting because they don’t usually confirm the number of cards.
The good news is that we have a little bit of information and we know that our set is going to be a Japan set with a bunch of extras, but we also know that it is going to be largely similar to it.
What they haven’t shown is the english version of the Pokemon Fusion Strike cards although we know the japanese version. Also, we still don’t have any information about the size of the set which usually they reveal. We think that they may include the cards in the set which were cut from Evolving Skies and Chilling Rain.
In terms of some of the things we already know, we know that one special energy is in fact fusion energy, which is any kind of energy and it can only be attached to a fusion pokemon. Also, it prevents all effects of abilities done to the pokemon this is attached to. In terms of Vs and V maxes, we haven’t any new information.
However, if we look at the Booster Pack artwork, things get very interesting. Now, we’ve got a new booster pack that we would expect and we’ve got a genesect booster pack. It is important to note that not all the pokemon featured on booster packs have v maxes. Genesect, for instance, we know isn’t getting a v max because if it was, it would have been revealed when genesect v was revealed.
We've got Ganger and Gengar appearing on the boost pack is absolutely crucial because that confirms that Gengar v and v max that were in that high-class v max deck over in Japan are coming in this set.
We are likely to get more information about the Pokemon Fusion Strike, so stay in touch with us and don’t forget to pre-book your set!
