    Where's my Goodra GX.

    Interesting froakies has an energy based retreat cost like zubat. Frogadier has golbats ability sooo will greninja do crobat and the breaks attack at once. We might see a revival of toad/bats but instead just call the deck Amphibians or Angela's Conundrum(book nerds will get tbis)

    Forget about Greninja. 4-4 Frogadier line with 2-2-2 Butterfree (GEN), and Super Scoop Up, Devolution Spray, and maybe Hydreigon (CRI). No energies necessary.

    I have to comend TPCi for bringing back old meta. I very much liked the Land/Bats, and they're already bringing back Ray/Eels as Malamar,Necrozzma. I'm looking forward to seeing what deck they're going to bring back next.

    I'm actually not kidding right now. 2011-2015 was my favorite time for Pokemon ever, and I fully support bringing anything back from that time span.

    Yo if this is gonna be like the Crobat line from Phantom Forces, we are looking at a disgusting revival with Noivern GX/Greninja GX (betting on sniping when evolved) with Acerola and De-Evolution Spray.

    I guess Evo soda is out... no need for it since you won't get ability... timer ball might be a good replacement

    Greninja GX - evolves from Frogadier

    Ability - Titanic Water Shuriken: Once during your turn (before your attack), you may discard a [w] energy from your hand. If you do, place 12 damage counters on your opponent's active Pokemon.

    Medium Sized Water Shuriken: [w][w][c] Place 3 damage counters on one of your opponent's Pokemon.

    Biggest Water Shuriken GX: [.] Your opponent's active Pokemon is now knocked out.


    That's my prediction.

    Sadly as it says to evolve one of your Pokemon, it cant be used with Water Duplicates. I predict Greninja GX will have 6 damage counters when you evolve it. This could be used like a new bats type deck with something like Weavile and promo Tapu Lele. 3/5 5 for now. 4/5 post rotation.

    That's a stupidly powerful ability for a stupdly useless attack and a stupidly stupid GX attack.

    You've heard of Lando/Bats, now play the new deck sensation that's sweeping the nation, Buzz/Frogs! Simply attack with Buzzwole GX while evolving and devolving Frogadier and Greninja GX! Its that easy! But wait, there's more! If you order now we will throw in promo Tapu Lele to rearrange all those damage counter! Coming soon to a league near you

    Don't forget to add in Promo Tapu Koko if you are the next caller in the next 30 minutes to spread damage even more! We might even throw in Espeon EX (Miraculous Shine) but hurry! Only a limited amount left!

    LOL

    If this isn't telling us Greninja GX is gonna be godly, I dunno what will.

    Not to mention a good attack potentially as well.
