There are two more Prism Stars to be revealed and one of them will be a Special Energy.

    Hopefully the last one is a "search your deck for ___ prism star card(s) and put them in your hand" kind of trainer card

    Artwork looks ace but sadly that's about as complimentary as I can be. Unless the Prism Star special energy to be announced does something ridiculous, this won't see play

    Any synergy I can think about is Psychic Transfer Lunala, but other than that, I can't see the use of this Pokemon. This hurts more because you can only put 1 copy of this in your deck. Hopefully more Prism Star synergy is coming, cause if not, this is pure Trubbish.

    That's what u was thinking, but by time you land a Lunala on bench and have a couple of scoop ups on hand be too little too late

    • Giratina Prism - Hmm! Standard HP, Weak to Zoroark (4 Bench needed to smash it down), worst RC. Ability. Free 2 Energy to Giratina but the attack is too, too, too much expensive. Especially we don't good Psychic Energy Accel. Prism Lunala isn't enough, Lunala isn't enough. But the attack can OHKO most Basic GXs. 2-3 Geodudes.

    This card is only notable if they reprint Shaymin UD in someway
    For newer players
    Also I don't know how I feel about psychic and metal getting this much acceleration. Too bad neither of them have a good 2 energy attacker like Yveltal ex.

    I have a feeling that when we crack into SM5, this will be the one Prisim card we DON'T want to pull. Which, in a way, is a shame but oh well.

    Wait, I take it back.

    You could play this down, ability plus attach for turn gets you three energy. Ninja Boy into Necrozma-GX and hit for 220 with Choice Band.

    If you throw it at your opponent from your hand, you may throw two more [P] energy at your opponent as well (One for each eye)

    Assuming that one has two Basic Psychic Energy in hand at the time this is played on the bench it can be decent. One could play a supporter and attach a third Basic Psychic Energy to it and use Max Elixir for the fourth one and we have an attacker that hits 160 to 190 (with Choice Band) damage out of nowhere. However this scenario may not be sufficiently likely.

    This card is the biggest buff that Lunala-GX has gotten since release, but I still question whether it's enough given that you can only have one, so consistency will remain a big issue.

    Why are most of the Prism cards hot garbage?

    So, I've concluded that base form of Pokemon don't exist anymore. Synery with Psychic Transfer Lunala is nice but that isn't something good right now. What sucks as of now is this card purely exist for the next format.

    Just the kind of card I want to help Lunala-based decks get more play. It accelerate's energy (god forbid that deck gets any energy acceleration), It's prize one, if you can manage to discard the energies and have choice band on it, it hits 190, honestly it's just the fact that it accelerates psychic energies that really excites me. Lunala needs more of that to make it a better deck (also it'd be funny to try and run Super Scoop Up / Acerola / something like that to try and use it again)

    Not a bad idea. :)
