Primal Groudon-EX preview

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 Honnn 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.
