    This is going to be the worst set since Evolutions. 10-year-old cards just can't survive in a format like this one.

    I'm gonna have to "Report" you for how good that pun was. ;)

    Nah, that doesn't work as well as your puns.

    Also, that full art looks fantastic~

    "Okay, cue interview!"

    It's Gabby and Ty! I actually hadn't considered that we would get reprints of supporters until now, but ehh, perhaps this was not the best choice for a straight-up reprint.

    Zoroark would cry.

    IDK if this was a good card at some point, but it would've been nice if they'd updated it. Like even draw 5, discard 2 would be pretty good (especially since you get to draw and then discard). But hey, the full art is nice.

    Omg this is an amazing FA. I just love these retro throwbacks - cards like this are 10 times the tribute compared to Evolutions - I really loved the art and style of these gen 3 trainer cards. I hope more like copycat or Mr birney get the same treatment.

    As a person who's gotten the world championship decks with these and has a good amount of TV reporters throughout my childhood, comparison to Hau or not, I adore that this is a straight reprint of the classic TV reporter. Do keep in mind that the discarding effect ay actually be good in the same sense how Jason Klazynski first used it to discard stuff he didn't need so that when he got his hand shuffled he didn't draw the stuff he discarded. Granted I think Sophicles might do a better job of doing that but just something to point out.

    Regardless of competitive play, it's just......so beautiful to look at as a sun and moon-styled card.

    Its basically Trade in a Supporter form.

    • Energy Switch - Its Energy Switch. Tech in some decks that needs energy navigation.

    Ok, so its basically a Reprint of EX era cards, give us a VS Seeker and Rare Candy (2003 art ver.) and I will be fine.

    Oh, a FA Supporter was revealed? I see, it's my time to say something. I'm not all over it, to be honest. Not my favorite art, Gabby's eyes just look unnatural...

    I adore the usage of the old art for the Energy Switch!!! It looks amazing! :D
