    Lol "Double Chicken Nuggets." Can't wait to get my hands on a Tapu Lele.

    *Looks at walker longingly...*

    My wallet is like an onion- it makes me cry

    I don't think I saw Mareanie or Eevee in there... Shrug, I guess, maybe I'm just blind. That makes them unplayable in prerelease however which could be a bummer.
    Hoping to pull a Turtonator-GX on Sunday for my Volcanion deck, really like this set.
    EDIT: Also Tapu Lele-GX, but I mean, who doesn't want one? ...Or 16.
    DOUBLE EDIT: Found Mareanie, isn't a Psychic type like Toxapex which is a bit odd. No Eevee could be because Sylveon-GX is from SM2+? I think? Correct me if I'm wrong.
    RIP Collector's wallets though, bunch of SRs.
    Also, isn't the US supposed to be getting the Lycanroc deckboxes? I really want them but don't want to pay a whole lot for shipping.

    I like secret rares but this way to many for one set. It's gonna take forever to collect.

    I haven't played the game in a long time. That said, I don't know what is considered good or bad currently.

    But looking at these spoilers, pretty much all of the GX pokemon seem very strong. Specifically I'm looking at Vikavolt, Toxapex and Drampa seem really good.
    Granted, again, most of them seem good. I want to play Kommo-o or maybe the Vikavolt. I dunno.


    Basically, are any of the GX in this set NOT good? (and why)

    Man, two sets in a row with like two dozen secret rares. PCL and TPCi are determined to kill my interest as a collector, I guess.

    I look forward to my dollar bills fly away and the cards appearing. This set will boost so many archetypes and, hopefully, change the competitive scene quite a bit. Hoping for at least one rainbow chicken, a golden double nuggets, two orders of Lele fries with an Aqua Patch in my packy meal.

    PLEASE have all Oricorio forms! The TCG has been neglecting forms for a while now and since each Oricorio has a different Type, I'd like to see each form get a card!

    Other Pokémon I want for the set:
    Pichu (Like most other babies, seriously neglected)
    Igglybuff (Needs a Fairy Type card)
    Cleffa (Same as Igglybuff)
    Mega Medicham (an event for Medichamite was released recently)
    Mega Pinsir (Pinsir is in the Alola dex)
    Core Zygarde
    Cell Zygarde
    Lycanroc Midnight

    This is worse than SM.

    I got pulled back into the TCG by XY Evolutions' nostalgia overload (after dropping out c. 2010/2011) and was entirely up for becoming a collector again. SM was just too big for completion purposes, and now this set is even larger. Huge, huge missed opportunity here.
     
  18. Dang, no Tapu Bulu then.

    This set is whack though - I'll definitely just be buying singles!
