    Too bad it's not Lightning-type itself (retyping maybe?). And there's not that many consistency-pokemon for lightning.

    Dedenne - Tech in Electric deck, Yes, Raichu is in it, but it never won tournaments, so yeah. The problems are: 1.) Bench space because Lele will be so sad if you fill it with bench Pokemon w/ L types 2.) Presence of DCE because things like Raichu needs Basic Energy to fuel Powerful Spark, like what I said, it never won tournaments, I set it as an example. 3.) Fragilic HP makes it easy Jet Punch target 4.) One Turbo Arm and Dedenne is down. -2-3 Geodudes

    Bad 60 damage for CC on a type that's hits nothing relevant for weakness. Now if it was 30 more for reach electric type then it would be pretty neat

    It's a good tech against dragon pokemon, if a 180 HP one would ever become popular. Just put a Tapu Koko on your bench and this knocks it out with a choice band. We didn't really have that for fairies before, so it has at least some potential for filling a niche in the future.

    I'm liking the Fairy typing.
    Not that it's going to be playable though.

    This could be a decent tech in Lightning decks if Dragon ever gets big. 60 with, a Lightning type on the bench, pop a choice band on there and add weakness and your hitting 180 for a double colorless. If Palkia GX and Dialga GX ever get big this could have some niche utility. 3/10 stars

    Was really, really hoping this Dedenne would at least have nuzzle to be used in Raichu-GX alongside ULP Pachirisu. All I see is pack fodder.

    This isn't actually too bad of a card because otherwise you could've only Skyla or Volkner for it, but now you have this which is begtter

    Meh. Is it secretly a Ditto? It looks a little in need of a treadmill.
