    Well I guess regular shay helps Regi decks? But if you don’t have it out already who would search for a card that searches for other cards?
    Glad Skymin is still useful AND has been taken down a notch

    First shaymin is equivalent of turn 1 bridgette depending on your pokemon(turn 2 if going first, although going second is incredibly easy in ptcg).

    Second shaymin kind of bad. Nice art though.

    Neither of these are good right now, but in a format with no brigette they both seem pretty good like the old emolga.

    Can you get a pure fire Pokemon + Volcanion EX + a non fire/water Pokemon with the first Shaymin, or do all types have to be different ?

    • Shaymin:
    • Land Forme - I love the first attack, but I don't know what deck fits for it. And also Alolan Vulpix is the best Pokémon searcher. 2 for now.
    • Sky Forme - Complete Meh! As a sidenote, weeks ago, I watched Andrew Mahone's Top 10 CRI cards on Derium's channel, and he puts Mawile on the top 9, due to Call For Family, I said, Come on! We have Brigette. Call for Family never see competitive succesd. For Sky Forme, 1 Geodude

    but alolan vulpix is better, doesn't need energy and can get lele for a supporter

    Not that interesting, none of these will replace Alolan Vulpix.

    Yes, you can grab a fire Pokemon, Volcanion-EX, and a different basic.

    Allowing you to get volc, baby volc and oranguru in a slower format could be good, meaning you can sycamore/n/Cynthia to elixirs for other things. I've barely touched volc so I don't know how good that is, but not having Brigette access it could help.

    Why do people like Sinnoh so much? It had the most memorable Pokemon, but I find the rest of everything super forgettable except for Cynthia.

    Ok stop comparing Land Shay to Alolan Vulpix, his attack is free, shay's isn't., Ik its one energy for shay's but still, it's not Vulpix. They're both pretty bad, especially grass Shay because I can't remember the last time Call For Family was ever used competitively, I mean maybe in format with no Bridgette it might be a tiny bit better but not much.

    I give both of these cards a collective 2.5/5

    I'm a fan of the first Shaymin. Allow me to tell you that back in the 2004 format, Sandstorm Dunsparce was what you wanted to lead with so badly, and this card's not too much of an exception. The only difference was that in the current format, you couldn't attack on the very first turn of the game and you are limited to different types on this Shaymin. I hardly care about the ladder condition because you're searching for support pokemon that might be a different type from your main attacker (BKT Octillery is a good example, as he won't probably be the same type as your Beldum or Cosmog or Ralts for that matter. Infact, as for Ralts, you still have the Psychic one from BKT, so you can search for 2 Ralts that way!) It's gotta be good somewhere, most likely once Brigette rotates or when certain decks don't use Supporters to set up their bench.

    However, there's a huge difference between 3 pokemon and 2 pokemon, and if we were using Call for family on previous pokemon to set up our bench, then the same would apply for the Sky Form, bu we don't, so I don't think Sky Form will see any play.
