    It would fail, you can't use Gladion because part of the card's effect isn't possible. You can't take your opponent's Gladion and put it into your Prizes. Plus: "If you didn't play this Gladion from your hand, it does nothing."

    Specifically because of this text on Gladion: "If you didn’t play this Gladion from your hand, it does nothing."

    EDIT: Actually, I kinda wonder about how it'd work on Archie's/Maxie's. There isn't an apparent wording conflict.

    Can’t you still discard it for no effec though?

    Sylveon looks like a pretty good 1-of in Quad Sylveon.

    There is no replacement for Lele. You can try any card you want, it won't completely replace Lele. Rather than trying to make a deck that needs Lele without Lele, just build a deck that doesn't rely on it as heavily, like Passimian or Buzzwole (although the latter can't be really be built as a budget deck).

    Very reminiscent of the old Smeargle from Undaunted, although not quite as good because it's a stage 1 that requires an energy and an attack to get the effect.

    This one doesn't force you to use your opponent's solitary Juniper to discard your nice hand of Special Energy. ;)

    While it's way too early to say for certain, I feel very confident that Palkia and Dialga will be in the next set. They were printed in SM5+ Ultra Force, and, as is the usual with Japan's mini-sets, the unique cards from those mini-sets are funneled into our next English set. The alternate type prints of Palkia and Dialga have unique FA and RR designs, which essentially means they can't be released in some kind of collection box.

    The reprint of Silvally-GX in Ultra Prism indicates to me that TCPi has no qualms about releasing exact/functional reprints of cards between two subsequent sets.

    Finally, adding Palkia and Dialga to the Kalos-inspired set would help drive the narrative that TCPi seems to be building with this block - that is, the "Ultra Wormholes creating connections between various times and spaces." Essentially, each set in this block will represent a mix-and-match of various generations, meaning it wouldn't be out of the question to see Gen IV Pokemon being put in a Gen VI set.

    Of course, I could be wrong in all of this. If anyone has any theories on how TCPi is going to release all the alternate type prints from SM5+, as well as the RA, FA and RR for Palkia and Dialga, that doesn't involve putting them in Forbidden Light, I would genuinely like to hear it.

    Ridiculous! A third eevee in seven sets? Nobody uses any besides the ability version. 800 Pokemon and they keep going back to the same well. It’s so stupid.

    This sylveon is busted. Seems so good in gardevoir cuz u can potentially lock them out of the game AND use a setup attack in the same turn

    More Eevee huh? Well, Sylveon is a pretty decent card. Couldn't really see too much play in it though, with pal pad in the format.
