    Oh... wow. What broken Tool support (or Tool counters D: ) do they have in this set? Between Garbodor, Suicune and things like the Burst Balloon that will be scary if unable to be removed in some way... there is a lot of hints being dropped in regards to tools.

    So is that a 1 turn rock guard?
     
  6. "If this card is attached to a Pokemon, at the end of your opponent’s turn, discard this card."

    Does it mean at the end of your opponent's next turn, or at the end of a turn that involves this Pokemon taking damage? Because it sounds like you can just avoid attacking that particular Pokemon (maybe Lysandre up a different one) and they'll lose it either way.

    Yes, if the opponent uses Lysandre, you will lose Burst Balloon at the end of his turn, but you force him to waste a Lysandre, if he has one in his hand.

    Is that really how Burst Balloon works? Wouldn't it be logical to discard this card when your pokémon is damaged by an opponent's pokemon attack? Now it just bursts without reason... It wouldn't be very good either, when you receive this card in the first few turns it would be useless. Either you discard it, or attach it to be thrown away the next turn.

    If you didn't have to put it in your discard pile as soon as it's job was done, it would probably be banned. Quite an overpowered trainer card, on the other hand!

    With eco-arm this tool is pretty scary. Plenty of situations where you're stuck taking 6 damage or passing.

    Burst Balloon is definitely something to be scared of. Sure it may be dead on the very early turns of the game, but it can always be thrown away to retrieve with Eco-Arm at a later turn.

    Yes, Lysandre can get around this. However, most people run only a single copy of Lysandre, and they likely don't want to waste all their Vs. Seekers on Lysandre either.

    I almost feel bad for Night March...

    If there is a Pokemon that can have "unkillable" tools, this will be terrifying. D:

    A funny way to counter NM and Vespiquen lol! Imagine this on:

    • Gengar from BREAKthrough can use this effectively

    • A deck that has 2-3 spots and wants to counter NM/Vespiquen

    • Chesnaught XY it can give 9 damage counters when attacked

    • Any Theta Double Pokemon such as Mega Tyranitar or Entei

    • Tool Drop
    The tools are getting amazing so I think Startling Megaphone will make a comeback. If it does, people may need to be more careful about when they attach Tools. Quaking Punch should ensure they aren't discarded immediately.

    EDIT: I thought about using this on Wobbuffet in a Primal Groudon deck. Your opponent can't Lysandre Primal Groudon and might be forced to use Escape Rope which you can easily just select another Wobbuffet.

    I am liking Breakthrough Yveltal even more as an attacker...
    And Startling Megaphone as support otherwise.

    There is a heavy focus on effect damage in this set. I almost get the feeling that they want everyone to start packing Fairy Toolbox decks with a few Wonder Energies...

    Wonder Energy doesn't prevent effects from Tools, only attacks so unless I'm missing something, Wonder Energy won't be of much use.
