    • Alolan Marowak - Bad Weakness since Glaceon and Empoleon will be great. Bad HP since it can easily OHKO by 120 dmg atkrs.Bad Retreat Cost. The atk can be spammed by DCE and good for decks playing Alolan Pokemon. 120 max, OHKO Metal Decks, and Grass Decks, but the problem is you make Lele sad. :'( The free atk is frikin good in Fire Decks, stage 1 is hurtful in Volcanion decks, but this might be a bit better than the one from CRI, since you're not relying on opponent's energy anymore. 3-4 Geodudes for now
    • Cubone- :(

    Aw was hoping Marowak would be Psychic type when I saw the thumbnail. I like its attacks, might be able to fit in an Alolan Exeggutor deck I might build.

    Nice to see an Alolan Marowak in Kalos...

    Cubone - shame it does so little damage, otherwise would be nice splashable Zoroark GX counter.
    Marowak - Alolan toolbox! Maybe not right now.

    I like the concept of making an Alolan deck, might also throw in a BREAKThrough Marowak because why not. Nice energy acceleration also.

    Alolan Marowak has some potential for a ''Alolan Toolbox'' but we would need a few more good Alolan mons for it to be worth it

    Regarding the translation of Alolan Marowak's Alola Circle attack, shouldn't that read "This attack does 20 damage for each Alolan Pokémon you have in play."?

    I feel like this could be good actually. Only a DCE to attack but which Alolan's do you pair it up with?

    Just fo laughs, I'm going to point out this little monster does 460 to Zoroark GX if you have two strong energies and a Choice Band on it, Diancie Prism Star and four Regirock EXes on your bench, and played a Professor Kukui this turn. The realistic damage it can put out is somewhere in the ballpark of 200 with two strong energies, a Choice Band, and 1 Regirock EX on the bench.

    The Alolan Marowak is actually decent! I might put it in my Shining Genesect/Lurantis GX deck for energy acceleration. OH WAIT. That's what two Zoroark GXes and a Lurantis GX are for!

    Everyone’s commenting on how Cubone’s art is so sad, but I just see how AMAZING the art is.
    ALOLAN MAROWAK IS OP.
    Accelerating any type of basic energy from the deck to a Pokémon? Yes please!
    How about two? Yes please!
    How ‘bout a free attack that does that?
    YES PLEASE!

    Everyone is being so negative about this Alolan Marowak i think the attack is good you can play almost all alolan pokemon in the deck just add in unit energy or rainbow energy, alolan toolbox will be a thing trust me when this drops i will build one.

    Thing is that attack is just a worse Riotous Beating. If this card sees play it will be for the energy acceleration.
