Plumeria from SM3!

Today we got to see another Supporter from SM3!

Plumeria works great if you get a Darkrai-GX and a Darkness Energy into your discard pile and can then immediately use Darkrai’s Resurrection Ability to put them onto your field. At the same time, you get to draw more cards from Shaymin-EX’s Setup Ability.

Plumeria – Trainer
Supporter

Discard 2 cards from your hand in order to play this card.

Discard 1 Energy attached to 1 of your opponent’s Pokemon.

You can only play one Supporter card during turn (before you attack).

    Both better and worse than team flare grunt.
    Its better since you can choose any energy on the board to discard. Basic or special energy.
    Its worse because you have to pay cards in your hand to use the card.

    I suppose it could be used with the Evolutions Starmie card with that Star Beacon ability. (Sorry if I botched the name here. That Starmie's ability discards 1 card and gets back 2 basic energy to your hand)

    Are all the Team Skull cards going to be slight variations and both better and worse than cards we already have? so far, the two we've seen are good.

    No. The card very clearly says Megumi Mizutani in the bottom corner. You shouldn't even have to ask.

    Meta is moving to more sensible plays, rather than "I have a card and I am gonna play it".

    We are seeing more cards that require more playing skills.

    Have you read Guzma?
    Except Xerneas uses an attack. This is an ability.

    It isn't fairy support dude... it searches any energy.

    Not sure if this is really worth it. Discard 2 to discard one energy as your supporter for the turn is kinda bad, especially with Team Flare Grunt being almost as good with no downside and Crushing Hammer being just as good, but with a coin flip and no discard. Also, as long as Delinquent is a thing, reducing your hand size is not a good idea.

    Plumeria does allow you to get cards into discard pile. Energies for aqua patch or mega turbo, or as was mentioned in article regarding Darkrai ability. However I prefer draw support rather than discard your cards for one energy removal. Plus other ways to get cards into discard....ultra ball, sycamore, and rarely used psychic third eye (think that's its name).

    expanded with exeggcute will make this card too good. You can take out any energy on the field instead of just an active Pokemon's, and no coin flip.

    Glad I only play Standard

    New meta, Pokemon taking zero Energy to attack, just you watch.

    Seriously, whats up with all the Energy hate cards? Do they not want you to play the game?

    • Plumeria - I love the card! It it like Ultra Ball and TFG fused together. Good for Mr. Darkrai in Standard to activate the ability, good for expanded so that it'll activate Maxie/Archie the following turn, good also to reduce hand size. Sylvie love this, some decks love this, 4-5 Geodudes.

    This. Sylveon-GX and other 'Quad Decks' already have too many resources to just stop their opponents from playing, why compound an already big problem?

    They are not bad, I see that they are for specific cards like Golisopod-GX with Guzma and now Plumeria with Darkrai-GX. Maybe in the deck you're running it's bad, but for other decks these can be really good. I'm not saying that you have to only use them with those specific cards maybe your deck runs on attack from your discard pile or switching out like Golisopod-GX, it's just how you play it in your deck.

    He's talking about the Ribombee, whose artwork is by Megumi Mizutani, and I think you're thinking of Plumeria, which has artwork by Sugimori :)

    Please reprint Cobalion-EX in this set, TPCi.... Please..?

    Muscle Dumbells would be so cool if Stage 1s actually deserved any support, but they already have a bit too much power. Some Stage 2 love would be nice.
