    Gumshoos and Lucario look to be the best promos. Gumshoos looks good for damage potential and the viability with Gumshoos GX. Lucario looks to be the best for its computer search ability and potential in potentially really good competitive deck

    Lucario won't be good for the pre-release but I cannot wait to play him with Garchomp and Cynthia!

    ...part of Darkrai's text is almost unreadable. Whose idea was this????

    The real life foil will probably make it look a lot better/more readable. It won't actually look that bright all the time.

    Holy snap, that translation of Cyrus makes it a SIGNIFICANTLY better card.

    TPCi manager: You know, everybody loves Darkrai. Let's make another Darkarai. It's not like Darkrai is strong right now.

    Literally anyone who knows about the Expanded format: Um, Darkrai is actually pretty good in Expanded, and that Darkrai will just make it even better.

    TPCi manager: It's decided then. Another Darkrai it is!

    Does Cyrus affect the active Pokémon too or just the benched?

    Also hay Darkrai I like you.

    Duskmane looks pretty good with Metagross too.

    Dawnwings is as useless as all Lunala cards.

    Just the bench. Since the sentence states "Choose two Benched Pokemon" clearly the effect of the card effects benched pokemon, isolating the active. Pokemon has always made a clear distinction between benched and active pokemon.

    Indeed. Since the fan translation read "active pokemon" it's splash-ability was very limited. This translation makes it far more playable without having to worry about getting a pokemon in the active spot.

    Dawn Wings has the same ability as Keldeo EX, which saw a fair amount of play in standard. I can still see Dawn Wings seeing reasonable play just for the ability + Float Stone.

    Post updated. We’re certain TPCi mistranslated it. It should only work if your Active Pokemon is a Water or Metal-type, not if you have any Water or Metal-type Pokemon in play. If this is true, they will probably issue an errata at some point. This would be the first major mistranslation by TPCi in a long time.

    So you think that TCPi mistranslated the card? I guess we will find out if they issue an errata.

    Japanese isn't an alien language, it's pretty easy to confirm whether it's mistranslated.

    You would think if that was the case, then the odds of a translation being incorrect would be really low.

    This actual translation of Cyrus <> means Cyrus got a whole lot better.

    Well I wouldn't call it useless, since it's the new Keldeo... with float stone = free retreat for every pokemon
