The fifth XY expansion’s English name has been revealed. The set, based on Japan’s Gaia Volcano and Tidal Storm expansions, will be titled XY - Primal Clash in English. It features Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre, and will be released in early February.
Primal Reversion will be brought into the Trading Card Game soon after the release of Phantom Forces. Primal Reversion is an extension of the Mega Pokémon-EX mechanic, evolving from the long-standing Pokémon-EX. Only one Primal Pokémon-EX has been previewed, with two announced for release: the XY Series’s Hoenn Collection will contain a Jumbo promotional print of either Primal Groudon-EX or Primal Kyogre-EX. Primal Groudon-EX will have an effect named Ω Barrier that states Whenever your opponent plays a Trainer card (excluding Pokémon Tools and Stadium Cards) prevent all effects of that card done to this Pokémon.
Primal Kyogre’s ability is Primordial Sea and it blocks Fire-type moves and changing the weather. Its move is Origin Pulse. Primal Groudon’s ability is Desolate Land and it blocks Water-type moves and changing the weather. It’s move is Precipice Blades.
