    OH MAN! I need to get my hands on one of these! The splattered background is so perfect for this.

    Have to admit, I'm a little underwhelmed with his card art. I don't think it's terrible, but the pose and color appear a bit odd to me. Not to mention something seems off with his face. Anyway, looking forward to adding this to my binder!

    This looks better than Lysandre.
    Also this card has a higher ceiling as compared to Lysandre when come to playability.

    So Escape Rope but better because you get to choose your opponents Pokemon?

    Or Lysandre with a Switch, depending on how you look at it. I will say it's better than both Lysandre and Escape Rope.

    Yeah, still like Guzma. The first memorable ''villain'' since Giovanni. They did do that right in Sun & Moon!

    Aw Man! I wish the background was more splattered like Team Skull Grunt. This one is kind of boring like all of the GX Full arts.

    I'm in love. Sadly it's pretty specific to play, but I mean, I'll stick it in a deck for the design alone

    Very good card for golisipod gx
     
  19. I'm a little underwhelmed with the artwork on this card. Guzma's pose is very off, and I don't think the brightness of the background really fits Guzma. I would have liked to see something a bit darker, like with Team Skull Grunt's full art.

    I like it! He's pretty much a ramped up Lysandre, which I'm glad something similar is coming back. Can't wait!
