The Pokemon Company has revealed the official English artwork for the Pokemon TCG Tag Team Eevee & Snorlax GX card.
With this special Tag Team card, players will be able to deal a whopping 210 damage to their opponents with the Megaton Friends GX move. Players will even be able to hold up to 10 cards in their hand!
Check out the full details below.
Eevee & Snorlax-GX
One Pokémon is nearly seven feet tall and weighs more than half a ton. The other is a wee thing, barely a foot tall and just over 14 pounds. Yes, Snorlax and Eevee may be on opposite ends of the size scale, but these two clearly know how to work together as a TAG TEAM: Eevee & Snorlax-GX can do some serious damage! To begin with, their Cheer Up attack, which lets you attach an Energy card from your hand to 1 of your Pokémon, helps to quickly get a lot of Energy in play. You’ll want that Energy for the duo’s Dump Truck Press attack, which does a considerable 120 damage—plus another 120 damage if your opponent’s Active Pokémon is an Evolution Pokémon.
If that wasn’t enough, the pair’s Megaton Friends-GX attack hits for 210 damage, and with at least one extra Energy attached, you get to draw cards until you have 10 in your hand. Land a potentially devastating hit on your opponent and load up on cards for your next turn? Not a bad deal!
Let’s see what the game designers at Pokémon TCG developer Creatures Inc. can tell us about this cuddly couple!
Why did you choose to match up these two Pokémon as TAG TEAM partners?
Atsushi Nagashima, game director, Pokémon Trading Card Game: The idea of mismatched partners is a rather common one, but we wanted to express it with this card that features the big and laid-back Snorlax paired with the fast-moving, energetic, and cute Eevee. The more different the Pokémon are from each other, the easier it becomes to imagine what kind of relationship they might have.
How did you combine the distinct traits of these two Pokémon onto a single card?
Mitsuhiro Arita, illustrator, Pokémon Trading Card Game: I wanted to capture the leisurely feeling that Snorlax gives off as well as the cuteness of Eevee. I tried to express the heaviness of Snorlax’s body, cutting through the air as it tries to collapse on its opponent, to convey a feeling of these two Pokémon fighting together.
