    "Angela's Conundrum" isn't an Eragon (from the "Inheritance" series) reference, is it? If it is, that I guess that makes me a book nerd ;).

    Coincidentally, I bought the Greninja-BREAK one, but it was only because I was on a budget and wanted to get as much as I could with the money I had. I also bought Alpha Sapphire that day.

    Seeing this card, I can't help but think of Lady Outing from the Ruby/Sapphire base set, which adds 3 basic energies of different types from the deck to the hand. Then again, multi-type energy decks were kind of awkward. Double Professor's Letter is always welcome for Dusk Mane Necrozma and Alolan Dugtrio decks.

    • Lass - Wow! Frikingly good on stuff like Volcanion which relies on Basic Energy for Steam Up and Magnezone which relies Metal to attach more. Well, it depends on the no. of energy you run per deck. If you run 7-8 basic energy, run 1, 9-12, run 1 to 2 Lass. Still a very good card to chuck in Metal or Fire decks. 4-5 Geodudes

    Wow. It's just Fisherman that need energies in your deck, not in your discard pile. I think that this will be auto-include for Alolan Dugtrio or Dusk Mane Necrozma/Magnezone.

    can be but 60 HP won't survive large KOs.
    Uses also of Trainers makes it a little hassle, yes Mt. Coronet can do but once per turn

    As long it can't make tournament success, I won't recognize Alolan Dugtrio a good deck. But Lady will be an option, it depends on how many energy you'll run per deck.
