    Imagine a shiny Azumarill-GX
     
  2. I feel like many people have already stated this, but I want to put my opinion out there. I hate Sun and Moon Rainbows and Full Arts, at least compared to other full arts. Rainbows just seem like a way to milk more money out of people and make Secret Rare lists harder to fill. The background almost always is the same color as the Pokemon itself, i.e Espeon GX, and if not it just isn't colorful either way. Where are the colorful Full Arts I know? Professor Sycamore, Volcanion, Pokemon Ranger, and more better represent those beautiful textured pieces of cardboard than the Sun and Moon full arts do.

    So are they just hitting the check boxes for all of the popular Pokemon for Burning Shadows/around Burning Shadows Release?

    Anyway, Lucario's ability looks really cool. Of course, it could always be knocked away with Guzma or Lysandre, but that's your opponents supporter for the turn. You could also use Devolution Spray to combo with it. Really wish the attack had a better cost though. Three Fighting Energy to attack seems a bit much, but that's the same as most Stage 1s regular attack damage.

    We get Guzma when Lucario comes out. We will still be able to work around Lucario.

    Man, that's made me feel old - Lucario LV X was one of the first decks I ran when I got back into Pokémon from Yu-Gi-Oh!

    Sorry, but this is the first time TPCi remembered that Marill is a Water type. I'm sick of seeing Fairy type Marill/Azumarill. And Cottonee/Whimsicott for that matter.

    Yeah, I don't even collect the cards anymore. They definitely took a noisedive in quality. The trainers are probably the best thing in theset.

    The full art trainers look good though.

    I remember the full silver Dialga, it was all silver but had a rainbow reflection in the light. It was gorgeous. These rainbow rares pale in comparison.


    Besides that Black border > Black line border

    Blue outline < gold outline

    Ok this ability is exelent. Can protect anything from a turn (with out spray). I mean is possible steal win if is the only pokemon you have.

    3 energy looks expencive from this meta but is fighting pokemon with some bonus can hit high (special energies, kukui, choice band). is seems to can trade with Gx pokemon well.

    But i love the effect as a clear defence move. Give extra turns from set up.

    And the Support protect from ability from NEXT turn. i mean is no cancel the effect

    Yes. this is what i need. Nothing else, just this. The card art on riolu is the best thing since Silly Bandz in elementary. Nothing else to say, riolu out.

    Why is one of Lucario's foot blue and the other one is black?

    In this artwork, Lucario is already gearing up for an attack (punch). The blue light is generated from the palm of the right hand of Lucario making one foot look blue. This is another reason why I like this artwork so much.
