    I'd like to give the Dragonite a go. I can see it working with some rainbow energies. Maybe pair it with Drampa GX?

    Zinnia with energy retrieval does help dragons a lot. If we also had double dragon energy dragons could actually be a little broken.

    Why did they change Dragonite's attack energy requirements from Grass/Electric to Water/Electric? Are they no longer using the Pokemon's colors for attack types?

    That's three playable Fire based cards now. At this rate, there could be a playable Fire deck in 2022 Expanded!

    Dragonite:
    For 3 colorless? Yes sir! On a stage 2? Nah.

    White Kyurem GX:
    No, no.

    Zinnia:
    Yes YESSSSSSS! This is quite good!

    Altaria:
    Oh boy.
    The Bird is Back.

    1 energy for 70, someone get Charizard in here to learn a few things. I like Dragonite. Altaria is nice. Gonna be like everyone else though and say we really need a DDE reprint for these to see more love though.

    I do expect that Cloud Chicken’s ability stacks, right? Because if it does, Ultra Prism Goomy can hit for 160 for a DCE with four Altaria on the bench, Devoured Field, 40 damage on it and a Choice Band. :D

    Altaria's main use is its ability to increase the damage Dragon Pokemon inflict. The Altaria from Dragons Exalted saw a degree of play for the exact same reason with the Mach Cut Garchomp.
    I think Dragonite is alright. 70 damage for a single energy is cool and with the damage modifiers from Devoured Field, the aforementioned Altaria, and Choice Band, it can 2HKO pretty much anything. It can even use Max Potion to increase its tankiness further.

    There is that, but there's also the fact that 20 damage is basically nothing, should probably be 30. Also, they could've just latched the ability onto a card that's playable outside of the ability, like that card is literally just an ability, it does like no damage and has pretty much no HP when compared to Stage 1's now. Idk I just don't see the point in making a garbage Gen 2 level card with an almost half decent ability, like if they're gonna make a useful card they should make it fully useful instead of half-assing it.

    Fight Song Altaria? YES!
    This means that Dragonite GX could be good. No DDE means the first attack is the only viable option, it can abuse Max Potion and can use Volkner, which would be handy for getting an energy and an item such as a Rare Candy or Max Potion. 3 Altarias on the bench means you can be attacking for 130 every turn for a single energy. That sounds good to me.
    White Kyurem GX is just bad.
    Zinnia, also dissapointing. As if having a Pokemon get knocked out during your last turn wasnt enough of a caveat, you need to have at least 2 basic energies in your hand to make full use of it. Come on!

    This is why you run multiple copies of Altaria and have at least 2 on the bench for the damage mods to matter. Sometimes a bit of damage can make a difference. Sunny Day Lurantis may only boost the damage done by Fire/Grass Pokemon by 20, but it did see play in a winning Golisopod GX deck to power up a Choice Banded First Impression into an OHKO attack. I don't see anything different with this Altaria.

    Here's the rundown on how to make Dragonite GX's Dragon Claw into a 2HKO attack with other modifiers besides Altaria: 70 (base) + 20 (Altaria) + 20 (Altaria) + 10 (Devoured Field) + 30 (Choice Band against EXs/GXs) = 120 (against non-EXs/Gxs)/150 (against EXs/GXs).

    Altaria also pushes Noivern GX's attacks into 2HKO/OHKO range with the aforementioned modifiers:
    -Distort: 50 (base) + 20 (Altaria) + 20 (Altaria) + 10 (Devoured Field) + 30 (Choice Band against EXs/GXs) = 100 (against non EXs/GXs)/130 (against EXs/GXs)
    -Sonic Volume: 120 (base) + 20 (Altaria) + 20 (Altaria) + 10 (Devoured Field) + 30 (Choice Band against EXs/GXs) = 170 (against non EXs/GXs)/200 (against EXs/GXs)

    For Sonic Volume, a Kukui can guarantee the OHKO on Zoroark GX and Golisopod GX.

    Lance probably won't get a Full Art card since he is a Prism Star card (Cyrus and Lysandre didn't get Full Arts either). I'd say it's more likely that Blaine and Zinnia are the ones to get Full Art cards.

    This could be exploited in so many ways
