    I hope so too. What with Palkia GX being a water type next set and the aqua patches we have now, NTM Glaceon GX; which could really help out Gekkouga(Greninja) GX water decks.

    This card is a bit too niche for my taste. Especially when enhanced hammer is already a thing.

    That's a good way to go. But risky, as Lele has to have at least 5 energy and 1 choice band to knock out Zoroark GX with 2 DCEs on it. It's Zoroark GX's "over 200Hp" that makes it hard to OHKO him using Lele GX, in my opinion.

    • Eevee: Adorable artwork, but no one will play it over the SUM Eevee. 2/5 solely for the artwork.

    • Sylveon: First attack: This is a really good attack as is, but if you can choose if you want to use it or not it will be sooo much better. Second attack: Not horrible, but not anywhere near good. 3.5/5
    Could be a good 1 of in quad Sylveon and Gardevior for the first attack

    Actually it’s the 4th eevee the last set had 2 versions? Why is it required? If they don’t print another one it would take 3 years to rotate out all previous eevees. It can be odd sometimes though gengar ex rotated once but a M Gengar was a promo and stayed standard, but you couldn’t use it obvi. Lol

    So are we getting this set in English as well? I'm curious because Collector's Cache has it for pre order in the English booster box section.

    Oh really? Uh-oh, I call myself an Eeveelutions collector and I haven't even been keeping track :p

    Now that you say it it is quite redundant. Even though I appreciate how the Eeveelutions get so many cards, I don't really like how some pokemon get absolutely no cards at all (Bonsly, Happiny, Kadabra - I'm looking at you Uri Geller)

    I think I want to try to play Quad (Quint...?) Sylveon with this. And splash a little Tapu Lele for the toplels

    (SHL) means Shining Legends. You're thinking of the Burning Shadows Marshadow-GX

    I guess it could potentially see a little play in expanded with XY Base Delphox as just a way of dealing a little more damage, but overall, kinda trash. Or some people might play it with something like that Infernape from ULP...?

    2 Stage 2s, NO!

    • Delphox - Worst Weakness, worst RC, worst Attack. The fact that this doesn't synergize with Volcanion hurts this card so much. Too bad that it can deal 150-200 for 4 but you'll exert too much effort to do it. Hugh! Greninja is our only hope, but I doubt that it'll be expensive given that their pre-evos has 2 AC in their attack. Hopefully it won't happen. 2-3 Geodudes

    If Zygarde-GX can get a supporter to synergise with, Greninja-GX can get a Ash Trainer card.

    I knew it! It sucks and Greninja GX will probably be a meta card... which I hate.

    If the Pokemon company are kind enough to give us a 2-2-2 line of this card in our Forbidden light pre-release boxes, then I can see this card being OK. not good but OK. well nothing compared to the pre-release boxes in ultra prism giving us 2-2-2 lines of empoleon and 2-2-2 lines of garchomp and even 2-2-2 magnezone line, which all 3 will see lots of play this next season.

    Out side of the pre-release meta, it kind of stinks.
    free burn is nice to have on an ability, but the nerf to burn, via the new burn rules in the sun and moon base set pre-constructed theme decks, makes burn one of the weakest status conditions in the game.
