    Wait that regirock.... It's very similar to another card, can't quite place it!

    Love the high five Salazzle but Registeel steals the show I love cards with trainers featured too - this almost follows on from the Regi card in the main set!

    Decent set of pre releases!!

    The prerelease promos should be all the regis not two regis raichu and salazle, The only good potential cards there are the regis in the cool regi deck that should be good!

    I didn't notice in the initial reveal of the set but I can't believe how they gave this Alolan Raichu a psychic attack and not only that. This one does 70+ 20 more for each energy to opponent active pokemon. The Mewtwo reprint last year has a mere 20+ 20 more for each energy for two colourless energies. I wish it had the same as this Raichu here.

    The artwork for the two Regi's look nice here.

    Okay, I'm gonna rant for a bit. I don't know why dragons need other energy to use attacks. It just makes no sense to me. Just make Dragon Energy

    Don't know how many Crimson Invasion packs I'll buy. Burning Shadows has yet to land me a Pokémon-GX with 18 opened packs so far (ratios are six per box) and singles almost always feel more worth it than packs.

    Aw c'mon they couldn't have made all the pre release Promos Regi's at the very least? Some theme for once?

    The Regirock and Registeel arts are beautiful, along with the Alolan Raichu. I swear to god these sets have produced the most beautiful cards.

    Why can't TPCi make Kartana have a different weakness instead of fire so I can add it to my Metagross deck and not have bad matchups against fire decks. They gave Ho-Oh GX a lighting weakness instead of water, why can't TCPi do the same thing for metal decks. :mad:

    Most Steel Pokemon that have been printed in the TCG have a Fire weakness that makes sense, with the sole exception being Phantom Forced Heatran, who, for some reason, is still weak to Fire even if it should be neutral - or even immune to it thanks to Flash Fire - in the games, even though the Legends Awakened version is weak to Water.

    They gave Ho-oh GX an Electric weakness because its half-Flying in the games. I don't see a reason why Kartana should have any other weakness than Fire. If you want a Metagross deck to have a somewhat easier matchup against Volcanion, just use Necrozma GX, which isn't even weak to Fire.

    Don't give up hope lol guardians rising was awful for me but the pulls I've had with shadows is insane, I always stick to back half of the box here I know not mapped but still even in booster boxes ive opened still the front 18 have will maybe only have like one white code card and back half just makes it rain!
