    Clemont might have some value in a Magnezone deck. Also, really pumped for the Eevee evolution EXs!

    I'm really let down by all these Eeveelutions EXes... Except Jolteon. Jolteon shows a lot of promise

    And Clemont is better than using Fisherman in Magnezone decks.

    Wow all these EXs. Really like how they look.

    Golem-EX is interesting.

    I'm a little mad Clemont probably won't get a Full Art

    Interesting news! Froakie looks pretty cute and Suicune has nice art. Does anyone else think that Ninetales-EX looks a little off? That is, its face has sort of a bootleg art quality. Most of the EX cards are what I would expect from these kinds of decks...not bad, but on the whole not quite on par with main the main expansion series. Olympia seems kind of interesting to me. Before I clicked to see the card, I had no idea who it was (oh, those unmemorable XY gym leaders). The Special Water energy is...better than nothing I suppose...maybe a useful way to keep down card count, particularly in stage 1 and 2 decks?
    And, this is such a minor trifle and a personal thing, but I so prefer when the EX cards have original (i.e. not from the video games) attack names, which some here do, but some don't. :-(

    They're there now. And in the future, when a story is marked as "Developing" and you see the Metapod message abouve it, it means I'm still working on it. :p

    I get a Vaporeon EX! I can put it in my Pidgeot EX deck... If I had one!

    Why is Vaporeon so fat? 3 energy retreat is huge. Its also 130- too. Why is the card so bad. Oh well, I'll still play it.

    That Ninetales looks like it got hit in the face by a train... Not like there isn't a HD Ninetales 3D model being used for Pokken Tournament or anything that looks good...

    The special water energy does not seem to me to be that valuable, except to return Manaphy EX to your hand when it inevitably gets lysandred up and KOd.

    Manaphy-EX – Water – HP120
    Basic Pokemon


    Ability: Aqua Cube
    Each of your Pokemon that has any [W] Energy attached to it has no Retreat Cost.



    [W][W] Mineral Pump: 60 damage. Heal 30 HP from each of your Benched Pokemon.


    When a Pokemon-EX has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.


    Weakness: Grass (x2)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 1

    We are in year 3876 :p

    I like most of the artworks, except for Ninetales and Manaphy. Ninetales looks too crammed up in that artwork, and I think it would've been better had it been in a pose similar to one of the Eeveelutions, instead of having head, tail, chest fur and a teeny tiny leg coming out of the artwork. Manaphy is just no. I can't even with this one. It just looks too "cute and cartoony." Maybe it would've been better if Manaphy had just a little texture, instead of being smooth and "wrinkle free." :/
    Love the Suicune artwork though, it's beautiful! :D

    My Favorite card in this bunch, surprisingly is the Olympia card. My reasoning is that a supporter type switch that can be taken back out with VS seeker is a great asset for certain decks, and can be used to dodge the notorious Item lock strategies. 30 damage healing might be kind of low, but any little bit could count in a tight match.
