    Eneporter can actually be more useful than Enhanced Hammer. If a DCE is discarded, it can get recycled with Special Charge and Puzzle of Time, but if it ends up on an Octillery or multiple on a Zoroark they have to figure out a way to recycle it themselves if they want to utilize that DCE properly.

    Looking at that picture, I think it's safe to say that the only way future Dragalge cards will be Dragon-type is if Skrelp is released as a Water-type. Bood to finally see inkay and malamar as Psychic-types. And I was right: Tyrunt and Amaura will evolve from Unidentified Fossil.

    I hope Frogadier's ability is good. Also, what is that Pokemon between Gogoat and Alolan Marowak?

    The Dragalge in both Flashfire and BREAKpoint was Dragon-type, while the Skrelp was a Psychic-type, so I wouldn't assume that. Also, weird to not see the Chespin line included in the set, while the other two are there.

    Volcanion Prism Star has an ability! I really hope it's not the same as Darkrai/Giratina Prism

    Yes! The Dragalge has an ability! I hope they bring back the "If your opponent's Active Pokemon is poisoned, it can't retreat" ability. I'm also predicting that Frogadier has a Water Duplicates ability, once per turn search for a Frogadier and bench it.

    Then you can just retreat. Though I do know what you are saying. Still crazy that they print cards like this.

    The main things I look for when a set releases are ability mons, and so far I see Spewpa, Delphox, Pyroar (Which we know), Froakie, Frogadier, Greninja-GX (WHICH IS WATER-TYPE OMG YES HOPEFULLY SPICY TECH), Volcanion Prism (hopefully cool ability?), Honedge, Malamar (Which we already know is Dynamotor for [P]), and Dragalge (whose card art looks familiar? and also is [P] instead of [N]). Hopefully all of these abilities are good. My top 5 hopefuls are Delphox, Honedge, Volcanion Prism Star, Frogadier, and Greninja-GX having good abilities. If Greninja GX ends up being a good deck, guess who is building that? >:^)

    Kinda wished Volcanion Prism Star was fire type so it could be a potential tool in Volc-EX decks but looks promising. Greninja-GX’s attack costs are WCC for the regular and GX attack which makes me think it won’t be great (all of the really good Stage 2s of recent times have either had amazing abilities, very low attack costs or both, see Gardevoir-GX, Greninja BKP, Metagross-GX). Looking forward to seeing that ability though!

    I feel like Dialga and Palkia won't be in this set. They would probably opt for Xerneas and another Gen 6 mon to fit the theme (and allow for a Blend FYD)

    We don't know that Palkia and Dialga are in the set yet, if my memory serves me.

    Meh, so predictable - more Greninja fanservice (everbody loves ninjas right? right???) and just like a user before me pointed out, the ability that Frogadier has is probably something that boosts consistency, just like 'Water Duplicates' does. God forbid that we have a format where Greninja cannot remain a top contender. Oh well this is Pokemon after all.

    Also, Delphox is again a fire type instead of psychic. Hopefully the ability it has is decent but I doubt it.

    If the Grass type Exeggutor had synergy with the GX one that would make me happy though.
