    The new primal groudon is here! 100 + 100 if stadium and then discard it. I like it. You cant power it up with strong energy like you could with groudon but choiceband already makes it a nice 230.

    Gyarados-GX's effect might say "You may take up to 6 of your Prize Cards. If you have less than 6 Prize Cards left, you win."


    That would make it a p good card. P splashable in the current meta

    Confirmed that there won't be Celesteela, Xurkitree and Pheromosa GX in Crimson Invasion. Don't forget that we will get them in a Ultra Beast Premium Collection Box as the set releases on November

    Still love the fact that Golem became an Electric type. Out of the box and still fitting.

    That Gyarados is going to be nuts, especially with Lusamine being able to recycle stadiums.

    Woah that HP on Gyarados tho.



    I think both are meh, for Golem you would rather be using Koko GX, and Gyarados's 2nd attack is a bit too high(2 DCEs on it makes it vunerable to Kartana).

    Still waiting for my Shiinotic GX

    EDIT: If that GX attack on Golen is accurate, then forget what I said about it being meh.

    Gyarados stage 1 with 240hp is awesome. Gx attack could be interesting as an energy disrupter. Love the second attack however 5 energy makes it extremely vulnerable to Gardevoir GX and Espeon GX. Counter Energy could be played however then you need to behind on prizes.

    yeah Gyarados suffers to gardie.


    Also I am pretty sure you cant attach counter energy to EX/GX. That's what I saw last time I saw the card

    Dread storm GX sort of sucks but the Alolan golem GX move is good, water type primal Groudon!

    I do actually quite like this, imagine it might fit nicely with some slower running decks. Guzmas and 1/2 of these could really turn games around.

    Im going to LOVE this in my Koko deck!! I run Electrode in it to accellerate my energy and used to run Ace Trainer when it was standard. Now instead I can force the opponent to take a prize so I can abuse Counter Catcher! This way I can force a switch and then have my supporter slot open for hand freshing or disruption.

    The only way Gyarados GX would be good in my head is with electrode because you could then abuse counts catcher. 5 for 200 isn't really appealing and hard to pull off. Speaking of counter catcher, This promotes the use of Alolan vulpix because if it gets kod not only will your opponent have a 7 prize game but they will also get abused by counter catcher.
