Hoopa Film - Called it in October! :p CoroCoro has revealed that the Hoopa movie will feature several Legendary Pokemon from past generations, which we will obviously meet through Hoopa's portals. The magazine shows Lugia, Latios, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Kyurem, and the previously revealed Primal Kyogre, Primal Groudon, and Mega Rayquaza. Hoopa is also seen with a bunch of Pikachu, which could be Ash's Pikachu from different dimensions.

Arceus Download - This year's movie ticket preorder download is a Level 100 Arceus. It will be holding a Silk Scarf and knows Judgement ("Justice" :p), Blast Burn, Hydro Cannon, and Earth Power. Fans can preorder their movie tickets from March 7th to July 17th. The movie debuts on July 18th, and Hoopa will likely be the Pokemon fans can download in the actual theaters.

Legendaries Download - The Arceus download isn't the end of it! Fans can also take their preorder vouchers to select stores from June 20th to August 31st to download one of six Legendary Pokemon. The Pokemon have not been revealed yet, but they could be the six mentioned above. Typically Pokemon films sell more preorder tickets when a variety of Legendary Pokemon are made available to download, so expect this year's film to sell well!

Shiny Rayquaza Download - CoroCoro also announced that fans can download the shiny Rayquaza that was given out at Japan's World Hobby Fair. The code will be given out in a future issue of CoroCoro. Fans will be able to download it even if they have the older Rayquaza.

Emerald Break - And rounding off the anime and game news, a full art Steven and four Rayquaza cards were revealed! The first two below are from Emerald Break, the third one is a promo that will be included in a future issue of CoroCoro, and the fourth one, an M Rayquaza-EX, is the only Dragon-type of the bunch and will be released in the set's accompanying Battle Deck Mega Rayquaza-EX. Steven will be the bonus card players receive when they buy two boxes of the set. It has an "Emerald Break" stamp on it, but is otherwise too hard to read. Thanks goes to Franco T. for all the translations!

Roaring Skies

We've received exclusive information that the next English set will be named Roaring Skies. It will hit store shelves on May 6th and will contain over 100 cards. The set will feature a horde of Dragon-type Pokemon and will be themed after the sky and "the edge of space," of course in reference to the Delta Episode.

We can confirm that the set will include M Rayquaza-EX, M Latios-EX, Thundurus-EX, Hydreigon-EX, Deoxys, Dragonite, and Zekrom. There will be 11 new Pokemon-EX, including 4 Mega Evolution Pokemon.

The set will also feature two brand new Energy, called Mega Turbo Energy and Double Dragon Energy. They are said to boost the power of certain Pokemon, with Double Dragon Energy's effect being most obvious.

Roaring Skies will be the English equivalent of Emerald Break, releasing in Japan on March 14th. We know very little about the set so far aside from this news story, but that will probably change in the next few weeks.

(日本の皆様!アメリカの新段ロァーリングスカイズにはメガレックウザEX、メガラティオスEX、ボルトロスEX、サザンドラEX、デオキシス、カイリュー、ゼクロムが収録されるらしいです! 更にメガターボエネルギーとダブルドラゴンエネルギーも判明!)

Here at PokeBeach I always post new Pokemon TCG products as soon as I hear about them, which is usually months and months before they ever hit store shelves. As a result of the products being spread across long spans of news stories, I constantly get e-mails from fans asking if so-and-so product is out yet or if I've seen so-and-so product they just bought at Target (which I appreciate - I love when you guys send me photos, even if you're not sure if I posted about it yet). So this week I thought, "why not make a compilation post so everyone is on the same page and knows what's out there?"

The following is a list of all TCG products that have been released since November, including some Japanese merchandise I covered in previous stories. Not all stores carry each product, and many don't even put them out when they're supposed to, so I've also included links to eBay and Amazon if you want to buy them online (which is surprisingly a cheaper option for many of them, as I found out when compiling the links). Enjoy!

The box images for the "Kyogre Collection" and "Groudon Collection" we first announced in December have been revealed! The products will apparently be the counterparts to the Kyogre and Groudon Boxes, featuring the same promo cards (reprints of Kyogre and Groudon from Primal Clash with new artwork), but including figures instead of jumbo cards. Both sets of products will be released in March.

Kyogre Collection / Groudon Collection Images Revealed!

Pokemon Bank subscribers who access their accounts between February 27th and November 30th will receive Meganium, Typhlosion, AND Feraligatr with their Hidden Abilities. All three Pokemon will come to you at Level 50. To receive them, you need to use Pokemon Link in any Gen VI game after accessing Pokemon Bank with the game you want to download them to.

Pokemon Bank Meganium, Typhlosion, AND Feraligatr
  • Meganium will come with the Hidden Ability Leaf Guard. Leaf Guard protects the Pokemon from status conditions when the sunlight is harsh or extremely harsh, and this Meganium knows Sunny Day—so it can change the weather to take advantage of its own Hidden Ability.
  • Typhlosion will have the Hidden Ability Flash Fire, which boosts the power of Fire-type moves by 50% and prevents this Pokemon from taking damage if hit with a Fire-type move. This Typhlosion knows Overheat, Flamethrower, and Flame Charge, maximising the advantage Flash Fire provides.
  • Feraligatr possesses the Hidden Ability Sheer Force, which eliminates the additional effects of moves used by the Pokemon, while increasing the move’s power by 30%. This Feraligatr already knows three moves that have additional effects. Thanks to Sheer Force, it can deal major damage with these moves.

It will also come with two Emerald Break, two Gaia Volcano, and two Tidal Storm booster packs, all for 900 yen. This is following the release of Emerald Break and its accompanying products on March 14th. It seems the Rayquaza hype is on for the TCG!

The 21-minute Klefki and Pikachu short that played in Japan's theaters before the Diancie movie has now been dubbed and is available to watch on Pokemon TV. The short follows Pikachu and gang as they travel with Klefki to different worlds, some inhabited by Legendary Pokemon. Pokemon.com says the short will only be available for a short amount of time, so be sure to watch it as soon as you can (especially if you're 8).

Pikachu, What's This Key?

Update (Monday, 9:30 AM) - Added Swablu and Fearow's retreat cost!

Thanks to our Twitter friends @yutaso0720 and @syakopoke, we now have photos of the new Fearow and Energy Recycle promos Japanese players can get when they attend Gym Challenge tournaments! Thanks goes to Vincent for the translations!

Fearow Gym Challenge Promo

Fearow - Colorless - HP90
Stage 1 - Evolves from Spearow

Δ Evolution: You may play this card from your hand to evolve 1 of your Pokemon even if that Pokemon was put into play this turn or if it's your first turn.

[C] Machine Gun Drill: 20x damage. Flip 5 coins. This attack does 20 damage times the number of heads.
[C][C][C] Swoop Down: 80 damage. This Pokemon does 20 damage to itself.

Weakness: Lightning (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 1


Swablu Gym Challenge Promo

Swablu - Colorless - HP40
Basic Pokemon

[C] Healing Wound: Heal 20 HP from 1 of your Pokemon.

Weakness: Lightning (x2)

Energy Recycle Gym Challenge Promo

Item

Choose 5 basic Energy cards from your discard pile, reveal them, and shuffle them into your deck.

You may use as many Item cards as you like during your turn (before your attack).

Only Flygon-EX, Swablu, Fearow, Lanturn, and Energy Recycle are brand new out of the 12 Gym Challenge promos this season; the rest of the cards are reprints, though most with new artwork. We already know Flygon-EX will be released in our Flygon-EX Box in April, but the other promos will probably be thrown into one of our sets at some point like past Gym Challenge promos.
