    What about the new malamar and lunala prism?? They can attach psychic energies straight from the discard pile to ultra necrozma!

    It looks like they slapped Ultra Necrazoma together just for the heck of it.....EVEN THOUGH the art is lit

  4. I don't get why everyone is so hyped about Ultra Necrozma/Malamar, I've proxy tested both Ultra Necrozma/Malamar and Necrozma/Malamar and the one with the normal Necrozma GX seems much more consistent, it's GX attack allows it to spread 100 damage to all of your opponent's pokemon, allowing you to take knockouts on basically ANY pokemon in the meta with 2 energy discards and an FFB, whereas Ultra Necrozma needs to discard 3 energy. The fact that Ultra Necrozma also needs a metal energy is just rubbish, as it makes the deck EVEN MORE inconsisteint.

    I have the feeling that the Exeggutor deck is going to be a flop given that Tropical Shake needs multiple different energies to use effectively. Of course, it might depend on whether the deck has methods to get the energy straight into the discard. Theme decks aren't known for having more than 2 different energy types in them; the exceptions I can think of are both of the theme decks from the Skyridge set.

    And now I'll predict what pack art will be used for Forbidden Light in PTCGO: either Naganadel or Ultra Necrozma. The latter may be unlikely, considering that one of Necrozma's formes was already used for Ultra Prism (Dusk Mane). Greninja is very unlikely, considering that Breakpoint already used Greninja Break.

    I love the fact that Exeggutor covers part of the window with his neck. :D

    Gosh. I can't zoom in the image. The Exeggutor TD is so hilarious it covers small portion of the window card. DuskLyc is a perfect budget card for Competitive players wants to tech DuskLyc in BuzzRoc.

    That means A-Exeggutor and DuskLyc will be guaranteed Non-holo rare in the set

    Great, more Fighting type theme decks...

    Alolan Exeggutor theme deck is interesting, it should contain multiple energy types in it.

    Cool, I guessed the booster pack artworks correctly. Although it was a pretty easy guess.

    Surprised about the alolan exeggutor theme deck. Doesnt seem like an obvious contender to a theme deck to me but maybe thats just me

    The theme decks were completely unexpected. I was hoping for a deck for kalos pokemon, like aegislash, sylveon, noivern, etc.... well, too bad I guess. I still do like the selection, though. I'm grabbing that lycanroc deck, without a doubt. If only there was a coin for lycanroc midnight form now...


    also, it seems executor seems a bit too tall. I guess that's one way to give him the spotlight.

    these don't look like they will be anywhere near as useful as the garchomp and empoleon ones for preparing new players for the pace and thinking expected in competitive play. Which is a shame.

    Good to see some bad theme decks after the terrifying meta theme decks last set

    The Greninja Artwork looks really cool! I wish it's the one used in the card though...but oh well! A Greninja card is a Greninja card!

    They really want Alolan Exeggutor to work. Meanwhile I'm waiting on a Oricorio-GX.

    Nagandel-GX GXs attack is the ultimate comeback/stall.
