Discover mighty new Pokemon powers: Lugia and Ho-Oh… and YOU! You'll be the first person to capture rare legends in EX Unseen Forces. You can take them to battle to discover your unseen abilities and uncover more wondrous worlds and more battles than you thought possible.
EX Unseen Forces refer to the tenth major expansion in the EX Series of Pokemon Trading Card Game. It was initially released in Japan as Golden Sky Silvery Ocean, and it's based on Pokemon Gold, Silver, and Pokemon Crystal and features both generations I and II Pokemon. The English expansion was published on August 22, 2005, and the Japanese expansion was released on April 8, 2005.
This expansion included a 3D Poke Ball pattern in the Reverse Holofoil. The EX Unseen Forces expansion to the Pokemon TCG is the most extensive set in the EX series. You will have deck-building flexibility like no other with over 140 Pokemon cards from the Pokemon Gold or Silver Version video games. EX Unseen Forces will take your deck-building skills to new heights, whether it's the latest Legendary Pokemon or the mysterious Unown.
Lugia and Ho-Oh, as well as Raikou and Suicune, are now available in new Pokemon cards with the EX Unseen Forces expansion. Lugia, Ho-Oh and Raikou are available in standard and Pokemon-ex versions.
Lugia ex (105/115) has released the most powerful Basic Pokemon! The 200-damage Elemental Blast attack requires only one Fire Energy, one water Energy, and one lightning energy. After using the attack, you must discard one of each type. Lugia ex works best when used with Ampharos (1/115) or other Pokemon that allow you to move Energy around.
Ampharos' Energy Connect attack allows you to move basic Energy cards from your Benched Pokemon into your Active Pokemon. Lugia's ex can attack more often if Ampharos keeps sending primary Energy cards to it.
Lugia ex can still be a threat even if it doesn't have enough Energy. You can flip a coin when an opponent's Attacking Pokemon causes damage to your Lugia Ex with its Silver Sparkle Poke-Body. If you win, you can discard one of the attached Energy cards for Attacking Pokemon.
Ho-Oh ex (104/115) can be as powerful as Lugia. Rainbow Burn, which Ho-Oh ex uses to attack enemies with Rainbow Burn, has a base of 10 damage. However, it does 20 damage for each primary Energy type attached to Ho-Oh. This means that it does 130 damage, not counting any effects, and you don't have to discard anything, unlike Lugia ex. Because Ampharos can attach basic Energy cards to HooOh ex, Ho-Oh will find Ampharos an excellent teammate.
Smeargle (48/115) will be of benefit to both Lugia ex as well as Ho-Oh ex. The Makeover Poke-Power of Smeargle allows you to swap a primary energy card attached to one or more Pokemon with a primary energy card from your discard pile. Smeargle allows you to ensure you get the best basic energy cards for any situation as long as there are basic Energy cards in your discard pile.
Each attack has a damage of 70 and requires three Energy. Entei (113/115), Raikou (114/115), and Suicune (115/115) each have a damaging attack that causes only three Energy. If you have fewer Prizes cards than your opponent, be careful: Raikou's Meta Voltage can do 40 damage to each Pokemon.
Entei's Detonation will force you to discard your top ten cards, while Suicune's Cross Wind will force you to discard all Energy cards attached for all your Pokemon. These Pokemon also have secondary attacks you can use if you have fewer Prize Cards than your opponent. You can switch these secondary attacks with one of your Benched Pokémon.
The EX Unseen Forces expansion includes 28 Unown. Each letter is represented by a different letter in the alphabet. “?”. The Shuffle Poke-Power allows Unown to switch with any other form once per turn. Each Unown can also use a special Hidden Power attack. These features allow you to have up to four custom abilities for Unown within a single deck.
Let's say you have three types of Pokemon in your deck. All three lead to Stage 1 and Stage 2 Evolutions. An Unown (M), and Unown (Q), might be good choices for your deck. You can search your deck to find a card that evolves out of one of your Pokemon, then put it on your Unown (M). Hidden Power Attack Unown (Q) allows you to search your deck for up three types of basic Energy Cards and then put them in your hands. Unown Q (Quick) can get all the basic Energy cards you need to evolve your Pokemon. Then, you can use Shuffle to swap Unown Q (Quick) with Unown M (M).
Each card is called Unown, and you are limited to four cards per deck. However, you can have multiple copies of the Unown in your deck. In the above example, you could have two Unown cards (Q) or two Unown cards (M). It can be fun and more rewarding to have a mixture of Unown. Unown (?) Unown (?) You get two cards if your opponent guesses incorrectly.
Indispensible (and Highly Visible) Supporters and Tools
EX Unseen forces have six new Pokemon Tools, one of the best parts. These Pokemon Tools will give your additional Pokemon abilities beyond normal. A few Supporters are instrumental.
Curse Powder (80/115) adds three damage counters to the Attacking Pokemon if it knocks out the Active Pokemon Curse Powder is attached to. Place the Curse Powder-enabled Pokemon into your Active Pokemon, and wait for it to be Knocked Out.
Your other Pokemon can take out the opponent's Pokemon. Curse Powder can't be attached to Pokemon Ex, and it cannot be attached only to an Evolved Pokemon. The effect of Curse Powder is beneficial when it's attached to Feraligatr (103/115) and Politoed (103/115) teammates. This is because Feraligatr and Politoed get attack bonuses based on the damage counters against the opponent's Pokemon.
Energy Root (83/115) grants a +20 HP boost for any Pokemon it is attached to. It can also turn off the Pokemon's PokeBodies or Poke-Powers. It may not be attached to any Pokemon-ex, a Pokemon with Dark, or an owner of the Pokemon's name.
For Pokemon such as Forretress and the EX Deoxys Web (Ex Deoxys 51/107), twenty extra HP is significant because those Pokemon can survive their self-destructive attack (Pop or Liability). While it might be bad for some Pokemon, the deactivation Poke-Bodies or Poke-Powers is excellent for Pokemon like Typhlosion. After Typhlosion has good damage counters to deal a lot of damage, you can attach an Energy Root, and Typhlosion will gain up to 130 HP, and Typhlosion's Burning Aura won't injure Typhlosion.
Protective Orb (90/115) cannot be attached to Evolved Pokemon, not Pokemon-ex. The Pokemon it is attached to can have no Weakness, and this will help Pokemon with Weaknesses to types that are very popular among Pokemon TCG players.
Protective Orb can help Fire-type Pokemon live longer if other players in your region prefer them. Because there are more ways to eliminate Stadiums than you can get rid of Pokemon Tools, Protective Orb is an excellent alternative to Ancient Tomb (EX Secret Legends, 87/101). Protective Orb works with any Pokemon with an owner, while Ancient Tomb doesn't.
Mary's request (86/115) and Professor Elm's Training Method (89/115) are the two supporters of EX Unseen Forces. Mary's request allows you to draw one card and two additional cards if you don't have any Stage 2 Pokemon. It is beneficial at the beginning of a game, and if you have no Stage 2 Pokemon in your deck, it will be effective throughout the game.
Professor Elm's Training Method allows you to search your deck for any Evolution cards. Professor Elm's training method can search your deck for any Evolution card, but not the Celio's Network (EX FireRed & LeafGreen 88/112) earlier. You can build a deck with both types of Supporters, and you'll be able to quickly get your Evolution cards in play with four of each!
