    • Wash Rotom - 3 Geodudes. sniping 50 isn't enough to OHKO Rowlet, Ralts, Beldum, all common basics that has 60 HP.
    • Frost Rotom - 10+(20*x) is awesomely awesome. Imagine if you have 8 energy in play, you can deal 170-200 for 0 energy. Well, 9+ tool requirement is a huge pain. 4 Geodudes
    • Drapion - TOO MUCH EXPENSIVE!!!!! 1 Geodude
    • Abomasnow - Free energy accel is good, but with Evo Spray to spam this effect, It's fine but.. Just use Aqua Patch. It's an item and it doesn't took too much space in your deck. 3 Geodudes
    • Spiritomb - Stops Basics, good, but most big decks ATM are evo cards. Retrieve Supporters, good. But as an attack, good for setup stuff, at lease we don't use a Supporter that recovers Supporters. And it is for one C energy, 4-5 Geodudes

    US #54 looks miiiiiighty like a Pal Pad to me! Would LOVE to see that return! Several old trainers returning, in fact! Curious on what UM #53 is, though - looks like it might have something to do with getting or swapping items? Maybe something like Pokémon Communication for items (that'd be dope)? It has the number 1 in two separate sections, which is what makes me think that (though obviously, we'll have translations at some point).

    Love the artwork in these, too, especially the ones featuring trainers (Cynthia on Garchomp & Cyrus on Sneasel & Honchkrow).

    But, uh..... where in the Distortion World is Gabite? It's missing at the moment (UM #43).

    This set is epic. We finally have a regular Gumshoos and a new Drampa. This looks to Be the first set in SM not to have a Bewear in it. Also we have not seen all the GX cards yet, we still need I think 3 ultra beast ones and 2 regular ones.
