Volcanion, a Captivating PokéPuff, and an Evil Princess

Hey Pokémon lovers! PikaPoster here, back with another Pokémon post. Today I will be showing you the first English scans for Steam Siege cards. I will be showing you Volcanion-EX, Evil Gardevoir, and the item “Captivating PokéPuff”. Have fun looking at the new Steam Siege cards!

Volcanion-EX

Volcanion-EX 180 HP [F][W]

[ABILITY] Steam Up
Once during your turn (before your attack), you may discard a Fire Energy card from your hand. If you do, during this turn, your Basic Fire Pokémon’s attacks do 30 more damage to your opponent’s Active Pokémon (before applying Weakness and Resistance).

[F][F][C] Volcanic Heat 130
This Pokémon can’t attack during your next turn.

Weakness [W] x2
Resistance [NONE]
Retreat Cost [C][C][C]

There are several strange factors about this card. For one, it is two types. It has 2 type symbols, and the card is divided into 2 sections, one red and one blue. For another, instead of having a lightning weakness or something reasonable, it has a weakness to water. There are two reasons why this is strange: First, it is part water type, and second, in the VG, it has the ability Water Absorb, which heals it when it is hit by a water move.

Gardevoir-EX

Gardevoir-EX 170 HP [Y]

[Y][C] Link Blast 30+
If this Pokémon and your opponent’s Active Pokémon have the same amount of Energy attached to them, this attack does 70 more damage.

[Y][Y][C] Luminous Blade 120
Discard an Energy attached to this Pokémon.

Weakness [M] x2
Resistance [D] -20
Retreat Cost [C][C]

XY11_EN_78 (1)

This princess is beautiful, but dangerous. When combined with Arromatisse, it can dish out 100 damage per turn with link blast for only 2 energies! It also has the attack Luminous Blade, which does 120 damage plus an energy discard.

M Gardevoir-EX

M Gardevoir-EX 210 HP [Y][P]

[Y][C] Despair Ray 110+
Discard as many of your Benched Pokémon as you like. This attack does 10 more damage for each Benched Pokémon you discarded in this way.

Weakness [M] x2
Resistance [D] -20
Retreat Cost [C][C]

This is considered the “Evil” Gardevoir. It is one of the now many Shiny Gardevoir cards. The difference is that this one does not have a regular Gardevoir on it, and it is part Psychic type. Its attack Despair Ray is truly evil. It sacrifices Pokémon to do more damage. Wow. That’s harsh.

Captivating Poké Puff

Your opponent reveals his or her hand. Put any number of Basic Pokémon you find there onto your opponent’s Bench.

This card has got to be my favorite item yet, other than battle compressor. You can lure stupid basics and even shaymins onto the bench. This is one of my favorite disruptive cards yet.

One thought on “Volcanion, a Captivating PokéPuff, and an Evil Princess

  1. I find it interesting that Volcanion-EX has a weakness to water. Guess a little water makes steam but a lot of water puts out the fire.
