    Rotom Box could really be a thing. I'm not sure how you're going to get 9 tools in your discard (honestly I feel like that number should've been lower), but the effect on some of these attacks are crazy good *if* you can use them for free.

    Fun fact: if you hit a Pokémon with spiritomb a melody then use dialga GX’s GX attack, the second turn they get they would be allowed to use the attack of the pikemon hit by Melody

    That Drapion is actually pretty good, if you can power it. That Frost and Wash RRotom is pretty awesome.

    You might want to reword these to fit current TCG wordings:

    Spiritomb:
    -1st attack: Put 2 Supporter cards from your discard pile into your hand (adapted from Vs. Seeker and any other card that adds cards from the discard pile into the hand)
    -2nd attack: If the Defending Pokémon is a Basic Pokémon, it can't attack during your opponent's next turn (adapted from Fates Collide Zygarde 10%'s Aura Break)

    All Rotom cards:
    -Rotomotor: If there are 9 or more Pokémon Tool cards in your discard pile, ignore all Energy in the attack cost of each of this Pokémon's attacks. (adapted from Steam Siege Yanmega's Sonic Vision)

    No, I meant Magnezone. You can grab the Energy you discarded using Dusk Mane Necrozma-GX's Corona Impact and reattach them with Magnezone. You also don't need Registeel because you have Solgaleo Prism Star.

    Dunno if this was brought up but Cynthia and Gardenia's full-arts being 070/066 in each of their respective sets means that there's only 3 GXs in each set, since full-arts are put after the end of the set in Japan. Which means the other 4 to complete our Ultra Prism set will be coming from promos or SM5+, I guess. 3 of those 4 have to be Ultra Beasts (presumably Naganadel, Stakataka, and Blacephalon). But anyways those of you hoping for a Garchomp-GX or whatever in this set may wanna bring your hopes down a few notches.

    With that being said we still are missing 1 supporter it seems (an unfilled gap between Gardenia and Mars remains). Given Japanese alphabetical ordering, I'm wagering we'll be seeing a Professor Rowan supporter card in this set.

    yeah, true... but if they added a tool or something "the basic pokemon this card is attached to is the same type as it's weakness. If that pokemon has no weakness, that pokemon is now colorless type.

    incorrect, EVOLVING removes all effects of attacks on your pokemon and special conditions(unless you use sea of emptiness.

    I see the frost useful against, darkrai decks, or gardevo
    not r
    rotom i see is more useful in expanded since you have compressor, and acro bikes, it does poorly against garbodar, however rotom can get around this by trying to snipe it first, with lysandres or guzmas, or use the 120damage rotom. bad agaisnt psychic since none of the rotoms have its weakness, and dark types. assuming you play with no energies. wobbufet, silent lab,hex maniac will counter this automatically.

    i can see the same thing, but rotom is probably easily countered by jolteon, or garbodar(both garbotoxin and trashalance), In expanded theres even more anti-ability options.(wobbufet, just sitting in the active will permanently disable rotom).

    I might see a fun deck in expanded (with battle compressor) in the rotom series.
