    So how long do you think we'll have to wait to see Greninja GX? If it's good we could be seeing tons of Greninja GX until BKP rotates.

    Imo one of the 70 hp froakies could be run in current ninja (obviously a lot will change by then, so who knows) as brooklet hilling for it gives you something that takes a buzzwole hit better

    Good point! maybe a 3-1 or 2-2 split would be a good line to run.

    Mix it up between tournaments, keep your opponent guessing ;)

    Honestly i'd say Greninja could be very interesting with the retreat one. If you start with it and brooklet hill, you could put it on your bench and then opt to use Alolan Vulpix to get you those juicy evolutions.

    I could see people running a BREAK/GX mix deck until we rotate to SM-on, would be interesting to see.

    • 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."?
