    The best standard Yveltal IMO, but that's not saying much. Art looks kinda cool though.

    Bit disruptive, especially in a format without special energy recovery and without float stone. Doesn't really hit hard enough though

    No one notice the free retreat? This could be used as a handy tech in Incineroar or Hoopa decks as a pivot, much like Koko, but this one disrupts. Seems pretty good if you ask me.

    When you accidentally put better attacks on the non gx.

    No, I didn't, that greatly improves the card, thanks for pointing that out!

    yea, this looks like a great pivot for darkness decks, and can get rid of pesky energies (like beast energy) if you can't secure the KO.

    Yveltal has a really strong, consistent series of tcg artwork. Way to go Pokémon's Morrigan raven!

    EDIT: Actually just revisiting Yveltal's Bulbapedia Origin page, it has one of the most brilliant, layered backgrounds I've ever come across.

    Free retreat and disruption makes this pretty good. Also, the ability to KO DW Necrozma with 2 dark is pretty nice IMO.

    Free retreat, good resistance/weakness, low energ cost, special energy denial, clutch... Awesome for zoro decks & against it. 110 hp is almost too low, but you could play sudowoodo so opposing zoroark can't KO without Kukui/dev field. :eek:

    Could also be a decent pivot in anything running rainbow en. Discarding special energy without a coin flip is part of Drampa's charm, so I definitely see people at least trying to make it work.

    Good option in a counter deck as well & love the free retreat. Also KO’s Banette-GX w/cb if shrine is in play.

    New Zoroark will (most likely) be a non-GX attacker. If it's viable, it could be used as another partner for Zoroark to deal with Safeguard cards like Hoopa, much like Mind Jack pre-rotation.

    I'm normally not one to make this kind of complaint, but...

    Man, I PLAY zoroark and I'm sick of zoroark. They could have pick any other dark type 2stage evo and use it instead. Obviously many of its cards have been good, but I really don't understand the hype for this character/design.
