Also please note:

 

Tapu Lele Promo SM #45 is currently banned from Standard and Expanded formats.  This card will become legal for play when it is released in English.

 

Edit: Please note the comment on the Official 2017 Pokémon TCG Promo Card Legality Status post:

 

 

 

Special note: The French version of Tapu Lele SM45 is scheduled for release prior to the English version. Because English is the only version that is legal for use in all regions, this card will not be legal for tournament play until the English version is released.
