Alolan Raticate-GX, [email protected] Prism Star from ‘Celestial Storm!’

Alolan Raticate-GX (#85), Latios Prism Star (#107), and Latias Prism Star (#108) have been revealed from Celestial Storm!

The set will release on August 3rd.

Alolan Raticate was a Gym tournament promo in Japan available between December 2017 and February 2018. Latios and Latias were part of SM7 Charisma of the Wrecked Sky.

Now we just need Palossand-GX, which was released in Japan last August!

    80+30(choice band)+20 kukui=130 for NO energy! Alolan Raticate GX is gonna be nice to play with.

    If it didnt have fighting weakness it might see play. 200 is much easier for buzzwole to hit than 210 with an empowered jet punch/sledgehammer.
    Maybe post rotation...

    Alolan Raticate GX might be pretty good with cards that can be recovered from the discard pile like Mt. Coronet and slap a choice band on it, you could be doing 110 damage every turn which is not too bad.

    Baby alolan raticate can already hit 100 with choice band + Kukui.

    (P. City pre rotation also bumps it to 110.)

    If this turns people on to the energyless deck, that's good. But it is outclassed by its little sibling.

    Hard Pass.

    I actually like A. Raticate-GX. It's not amazing or anything, but due to the GX attack it's not a bad utillity card. Being able to do 110 (CB) for 0 energy is also good I'd say. Second attack is obviously bad. Since fighting will be nerfed after rotation the weakness doesn't matter that much imo. It's still going to be a bad weakness though. But A. Raticate could be paired with the correct 1 energy attacker depending on whether Buzzwole remains the top 1 fighting deck or if it gets replaced by Zygarde.

    I don't think there is any reason to play A. Raticate in Expanded.

    Could always pair it with metal. discard 2 metal energys from hand. Then my cornet them back to hit 110 every turn. Not great . Beast box doea a out sane damage. Both stage 1. Each has its ups and downs. But the fighting weakness is a ouch. Then what to pair with metal wise hmm???

    I just realized that the Rat could do 180 for 2 with a Band... Fliptini is a thing too.

    Yes 1 dark 1 dcolorless. Does hit 180 with choice but flipping 1 coin if tails then using victini to flip once more.. better ways to hit 180
