    I’m sure the upcoming Goodra or Goodra GX or Goodra Prism Star is better.

    Why does everyone complain about Greninja GX’s WCC attack cost. Thats not expensive! You have aqua patch and DCE, not to mention a possible ZoroFrogs combo that isn’t as bad as the current ZoroFrogs. Also, we have water duplicates in standard as well.

    It's really weird how the Chesnaught evolution line is not included in the set. As for Delphox... let's just hope Greninja-GX is a bit better.

    Still not ideal. It is a two prize bench sitter that is 1HKOd by the attacks designed to 2HKO (Riotous Beating, First Impression, Turbo Drive etc.) that dominate the meta. Greninja BKP had free retreat so it would be less than great for this card to have a retreat of 2.

    I don't think you should get your hopes up for a Goodra Prism Star, since it, so far, seems like it only will be Legendary/Mythical Pokemon that will get Prism Star cards (that aren't trainers/energies). But otherwise, I agree with you ;P

    Burn wasn't nerfed. It got buffed because the damage is done to the Pokemon before the coin flip. The old burn rules put the coin flip before the burn damage (meaning there was a 50/50 chance that burn literally did nothing when it was first applied).

    • Braixen: Both attacks are nothing special, the same ones we've been getting for years on these mid evolutions. 1.5/5

    • Delphox: Ability: Infernape finally got its partner! Attack: Nothing great, but not atrocious. Its better than Charizard though! 3/5

    That's just BUR Weavile's normal attack. If that is the case I think it would be the worst GX attack yet!
