The Tapu Koko GX is the same one from Guardians Rising with a different artwork. The Tapu Bulu however is the one from SM2+ with the same artwork.

We don't know for sure, but it seems most likely, that the Tsereena GX is a Promo given out at Japanese tournaments and the Tapu Lele is the one from SM2+ (see above)
