Strange how we still haven’t seen Chespin revealed after the two other Kalos starters were back to back. I wonder if theres a reason for it (i.e. one will have a good Ability or something) or whether Chespin just isn’t getting any love! :(

    Chespin deserves no love. There were 3 in Breakthrough, which is plenty for years to come

    I agree regarding Chespin.
    As for Pangoro, pretty boring attacks, in my opinion.

    Pancham's attack could be seen as another Unit Energy FFD hint? (Dark + Fairy + Fighting)

    Its guaranteed to happen.
    • Eneportal - At least an option to preserve Special Energy, after Special Charge rotates. Its like Multi-Switch for Special Energy. But the main problem is... #Hammers,#Drampa,#SpecEnergyHate. So,3 Geodudes.
    • Pangoro - Too expensive, Bad Weakness, Even worse RC (we have Heavy Ball), easily vulnerable to plain OHKO atkrs. - 2-3 Geodudes
    • Stupidity Alert (EDIT) - Portal is good for "Discarding" Special Energy on the user. But, as long we got SM-on, we have only fewer access to Special Energy, for now. Like Rainbow, DCE, and Prism SP.E.C. not like before. But hey, still 3 Geodudes because it can be sucked in distruption decks. I don't have a feeling on this cardlike that "This card is awesome! It can won tournaments." thing.

    You misread Eneporter it moves energy of your opponent, not you, so you can leave all 4 DCEs on a Remoraid or Octillery if you want

    Speed Reading is not effective. But 3-Geodude score is still the same.

    Eneporter can actually be more useful than Enhanced Hammer. If a DCE is discarded, it can get recycled with Special Charge and Puzzle of Time, but if it ends up on an Octillery or multiple on a Zoroark they have to figure out a way to recycle it themselves if they want to utilize that DCE properly.

    Looking at that picture, I think it's safe to say that the only way future Dragalge cards will be Dragon-type is if Skrelp is released as a Water-type. Bood to finally see inkay and malamar as Psychic-types. And I was right: Tyrunt and Amaura will evolve from Unidentified Fossil.

    I hope Frogadier's ability is good. Also, what is that Pokemon between Gogoat and Alolan Marowak?

    The Dragalge in both Flashfire and BREAKpoint was Dragon-type, while the Skrelp was a Psychic-type, so I wouldn't assume that. Also, weird to not see the Chespin line included in the set, while the other two are there.

    Volcanion Prism Star has an ability! I really hope it's not the same as Darkrai/Giratina Prism

    Yes! The Dragalge has an ability! I hope they bring back the "If your opponent's Active Pokemon is poisoned, it can't retreat" ability. I'm also predicting that Frogadier has a Water Duplicates ability, once per turn search for a Frogadier and bench it.

    Then you can just retreat. Though I do know what you are saying. Still crazy that they print cards like this.

    The main things I look for when a set releases are ability mons, and so far I see Spewpa, Delphox, Pyroar (Which we know), Froakie, Frogadier, Greninja-GX (WHICH IS WATER-TYPE OMG YES HOPEFULLY SPICY TECH), Volcanion Prism (hopefully cool ability?), Honedge, Malamar (Which we already know is Dynamotor for [P]), and Dragalge (whose card art looks familiar? and also is [P] instead of [N]). Hopefully all of these abilities are good. My top 5 hopefuls are Delphox, Honedge, Volcanion Prism Star, Frogadier, and Greninja-GX having good abilities. If Greninja GX ends up being a good deck, guess who is building that? >:^)
