    I am so excited for the return of Mow Rotom, and presumeably the rest of the Rotom Formes as well!! Last (and only) time they appeared were in Rising Rivals which were in 2009! Back then they were all Electric(/Ghost), so I really hope the rest of the Rotom Formes have their respective typings as well! :D

    Rotomotor is a palindrome. :p

    I hope all Rotom formes have that Ability. Could make for a nice budget deck.

    Wouldn't you just get destroyed by Trashalanche though?

    With only 90 health, you'll get destroyed by most things.

    I think this is the perfect partner. Lead with Gourgeist, use Mow Rotom as a back up attacker.

    Pretty much. Also gives Gourgeist an option late-game when it runs out of tools.

    I really wish there were actual good Rotom cards to match the play mat I bought, but that would require me playing legacy format. Personally I wish that Rotom had a special stadium/tool card that let you swap formes that are in your hand. Would make for some fun decks.

    There is absolutely no confirmation of this but holy crap that would make me so happy. Sinnoh was my favorite both competitively and thematically.

    If all rotom forms have that effect a no energy rotom toolbox deck will be very fun to play. Will be able to hit type advantage on majority of decks if all the forms have different typing, and most likely each attack will have some kind of effect that you can just pick for the right situation, discard special energy, cause a status, etc. Maybe even throw in silvally and a few dce to cover the types of rotom we won't have like fighting and dark, and will also let you swap rotoms easily. The silvally tools also synergize with rotom effect by tossing them if you don't need them.

    Mow Rotom only does 60 damage, so it's pretty weak as a backup attacker in Standard Gourgeist decks.

    That Cynthia play mat is so cool, I'm getting one for sure.

    Very strange card. I wish it was all your Stage 2 Pokemon GX, or something
