    Delphox & Infernape/Salazzzzzzzle? Interesting status condition deck could form especially with Delphox/Salazzzzzzzle/Seviper/Darkrai GX possibly.

    Attack is meh especially with no fire acceleration- better to use turtonator gx even if giving up two prize cards.

    I give it 3 Regis

    On closer inspection, I'm pretty sure that that Greninja has a retreat cost of 2...that would be off the scale bad for the success of the card.

    Greninja from the forbidden light picture seems to be expensive to charge, you need (w)(c)(c) to use it's attack, maybe it'll have an ability like 3 damage counters to 1 ex or gx Pokemon, or so. Delphox is my favorite starter of gen 6, it's sad to see it be barely unplayable, you need to break evolve in order to play it, meaning you lose the chance to do burn :c.

    Ok I knew it, not even the ability can save it...Naturally Greninja has to take the spotlight again and Delphox gets a crappy card. At least FCO and XY Delphox (and even the BREAK) were decent but this is total garbage.

    This could be good with the infernape from ultra prism with its ability says that instead of putting 2 damage counters for burn put 6.

    I feel like their trying to low-key get people to play a Delphox/Infernape deck. It's way too clunky to be competitive, but could be a fun cheese deck. While I don't think the card is trash, I definitely don't think it's very good either. It's just kinda there.

    Sometimes TPCi has trouble doing what they want. They want to make a double stage two deck, they give us this. The wanted to make non-basic Pokemon strong, they printed Max Elixer. Sorry, that was off topic. I just can't help but laugh when I remember that happening. To be fair, though, they did make non-basic Pokemon strong, it just took them a bit longer.

    You can still do burn with Delphox BREAK under FBL Delphox, it gives an additional capability not taking the previous ones. Too bad becausd you'll beplayin' a Stage 3 deck.

    I’m sure the upcoming Goodra or Goodra GX or Goodra Prism Star is better.

    Why does everyone complain about Greninja GX’s WCC attack cost. Thats not expensive! You have aqua patch and DCE, not to mention a possible ZoroFrogs combo that isn’t as bad as the current ZoroFrogs. Also, we have water duplicates in standard as well.

    It's really weird how the Chesnaught evolution line is not included in the set. As for Delphox... let's just hope Greninja-GX is a bit better.

    Still not ideal. It is a two prize bench sitter that is 1HKOd by the attacks designed to 2HKO (Riotous Beating, First Impression, Turbo Drive etc.) that dominate the meta. Greninja BKP had free retreat so it would be less than great for this card to have a retreat of 2.

    I don't think you should get your hopes up for a Goodra Prism Star, since it, so far, seems like it only will be Legendary/Mythical Pokemon that will get Prism Star cards (that aren't trainers/energies). But otherwise, I agree with you ;P
