    All of the previous Pokémon that we have had this ability on have been Stage 1s. This is far less clunky and will be a great tech in Garbodor decks!

    Weavile's ability on a Basic? That's not too bad.
    I'm sure it'll see some play, probs not a ton though, it's not going to be a money card, maybe $3.00 max

    I like the ability but with our current tools the impact is kind of meh. Main contenders are float stone, decks that have lots of support pokemon don't need to run 4 of anymore, maybe 2 plus magearna. Other than that maybe on silvally to change types? That would be super situational though.

    What this does confirm is we might be getting some super fun tools in this set, hopefully some with active effects as soon as you play them.

    If you want to play multiple typing tools for Silvally GX, this is your card. It's just cute in general for passing around Choice Bands and Float Stones as well.

    Keep it in your back pocket.

    Would possibly make running muscle dumbells/fighting fury belt more useable in this choice band heavy format.

    It's going in Koko immediately.
    Done.

    Serously, no Special Energy based decks can do any damage at all,
    100 and mill a card for (L)(L)(C) isn't terrible
    But I think the GX attack is lackluster to make up for the insane properties of the rest of the card.

    Xurkitree, welcome to my Koko Loco deck.

    On the Magearna;
    Extremely Good Tech Card (EGTC)
    You get to move tools around, pretty much. Move a Choice Band to an active, or quickly swap a dash pouch, Magearna might might might see play.

    I'm going to be viable again? I sure do hope so.
    On a more serious note, I really do like this card.

    This will help Mega Evolved Pokemon for sure so I'm looking forward to testing it out. It's a nice tool to have around.

    Have to say this set has went from mweh to kweh! for me - intrigued how many new art cards will feature, it's a packed month for Pokemon but sure pulling a GX in every pack will sure be a kick lol I might open a few packs just to open every time I have a few poor pulls lol
