    That Guzzlord GX is going to be part of some interesting decks. I can see it paired with Mallow or Puzzle of Time to set up some cool win situations.

    I thought there were only supposed to be Silvally and the Ultra Beasts in this set. Is Gyarados, Alolan Exegutor, and Alolan Golem replacing Phermosa, Celesteela, and Xurkitree?

    Gyarados’ Draconic Disaster is just that as 5 energy attachment is a disaster. Espeon and Gardevoir will easily OHKO it.

    Gyarados' GX attack isn't outright terrible though... Being able to discard any energy (DCE) from EACH of your opponents Pokémon is pretty powerful.
     
  6. This is correct. Phermose, Celeseeta, and Xurkitree will be released as promo's

    Its a shame DRACONIC DISASTER (such a cool name), is such a DISASTER of an attack ;)

    If you're playing a dark rai or an xerneas break deck that would be a devastating, but I just don't see it as that great against most other decks in most cases.

    That attack's expensive, but 280HP with Dumbbells seems kinda tanky

    What is with these incredibly high energy costs? Are we going to get some new tech or just depend on elixirs, etc.?

    Counter Energy maybe. Give up a Karp, you only need [W][Counter][Counter] which isn't impossible. Then if you catch up on prizes you toss on a DCE

    But doesn't Counter Energy not function on EX/GX?

    That Gyarados art is tops... I can't wait to build Exeggcutor GX. I feel like it's one item or energy card away from being amazing.

    Correct. And as for the card, people will test it, but all in all, it won't be great. Love middle attack name though!

    It was already confirmed that Xurkitree, Celesteela, and Pheromosa would come in their own promo boxes.

    Puzzle of time doesn't help since you're going to be milling all 3 cards anyways.

    ugh, you're right. Guess this Gyarados will be unplayable then.

    for an energy denial deck, it would be pretty cool.

    Buzzwole will fight nicely into my lycanroc deck. A strong energy and fury belt = 60 to active and 30 to bench. Also a bonus it is weak to psychic.

    Gyarados's GX attack could be devastating early or late game.
