    Is looks like bad card, but is little fun if played correct. Cards looks like Team Aqua Mac, Team Aqua Secret Base, (i know is not legal now, but looks like with some effect cards i mean) may help this card, to be a little more playable

    If only it was something like:
    [P] Shadow Knot: 20x damage. This attack does 20 damage for each [C] in your opponent’s Active Pokemon’s Retreat Cost.
    Then at the very least it could kill Garbodor.

    • Wobbufet - the attack is gosh darn expensive! If it is a DCE, it could be an anti to most decks. This time, this counters 120-160 HP, Garbage with weird arms. 2-3 Geodudes.

    I'd pair this with Alolan Dugtrio and Lunala-GX. Dugtrio adds more * to the opponent's Retreat Cost, Lunala can move Psychic Energy around, opening up to things like Max Potion etc. Only horrendous matchup I can think of is Garbodor, purely because of how Item-reliant this deck could be. But, it could be a lot of fun.

    the energy cost is just way too much, I'd rather stick to "Bide Barricade" Wobbuffet

    goshdangit, it's Toxapex GX all over again! I like this card except it's too expensive. Probably will see no play, but I might be wrong...

    EDIT: I forgot Metagross GX was a thing. Whoops. But it would be a bit clunky if you had Metagross in your deck. Thank the lord Wobbuffett is a stage 1.

    It should be 70x or 60x if you ask me, come on Pokémon, it's 3 energies. Why not a mediocre attack with a one or at max two energies cost?

    This sounds pretty fine, or maybe for 2 energies 30x, but 3 for 50x? No thanks

    Is there a middle ground between being to costly to use and being too strong? I see tons of complaints about either end of the spectrum and I'm sitting here like- team skull graffiti in a card art. Cool.

    Max elixir, Dugtrio, Team Aqua Base ... This card is WORSE than Garb. There will be a ton of these decks at worlds.

    Wobbuffet is basic since Wynaut is a baby Pokémon

    What has this Wobbuffet been eating, iron?!?! Why is it so hard to make it attack??! Anyways, with Aqua Base and Alolan Dugtrio it would be doing 500 damage to Garbodor because of Weakness. Charging it up could possibly be accounted for by Rayquaza from Guardians, and maybe Energy could be kept on the board with Wish Baton, but I don't think this will see any play outside of some fun rogue decks.

    Dusknoir looks interesting. The ability auto-fuels Mind Jack and with Choice Band he would be able to ohko stage 1 Pokémon GX. we will have to see whether there will be some support to enable us to stream him.
