Bunch of XY8 Cards Revealed!


The official Pokemon Card website has revealed several cards from Blue Impact and Red Flash as well as their accompanying decks.

Thanks goes to Michael S. and Sean T. for the translations!

Blue Impact / Red Flash

The most unique card revealed is a brand new Stadium called Parallel City. The card has two different effects – one on the top and one on the bottom. Whichever way you play the card (up or down – the orientation) will determine which of the two effects applies to you and your opponent. There has never been a card like this before, so it’s a new kind of mechanic:

Parallel City – Trainer
Stadium

The player this side of the card is facing can only have 3 Benched Pokemon.

The player this side of the card is facing’s Fire, Water, and Grass Pokemon’s attacks do 20 less damage.

This card stays in play when you play it. Discard this card if another Stadium card comes into play. If another card with the same name is in play, you can’t play this card.
