    Because Shiftry was the problem, not Devolution Spray.

    If they banned Shiftry, it was because Shiftry was exploitable.

    That Lucario and Grumpig do have some really awesome artworkstories. Just look at that evil M Alakazam and the Exploud soundboxes. Love them!

    Don't get too excited about Alakazam/Bats/Devolution Spray. It would rely on abilities way too much, and ability block is still a thing. Garbodor and Hex Maniac are still popular in both expanded and standard. Greninja from Breakpoint would also be troublesome.

    If ability block didn't exist this deck would surely be very powerful. if not OP.

    Not to mention the Forest of Giant Plants to negate the no-re-evolution effect that would have been evident if it wasn't present... Here comes XY Diggersby to get the two needed Puzzles of Time needed to KO Night March w/ infinite Devolution Spray(as long as it keeps drawing the 2 puzzles of time from the discard per first attack text) w/ its pickup when combined with AZs, infinite forretress ability activations(or, more realistically, three ability activations per turn, enough to KO Joltiks w/o FFB), and last but not least, any pokemon that can use an attack that adds three damage counters to every pokemon that was put in play by foe... RIP NM...

    Hahaha... I forgot about FGP...You have potential of knocking out a combe, and as you said Joltiks/Freebas on turn one. I wonder if players will start using the new Hoopa or Bunleby to ensure time puzzle for devolution on next turn. Or they could use the new Mewistic Ex to move around damage counters. Wow lots of option on on multiple turn one knockouts in standard.

    I want to note that the text on the de-evolution spray states that you can't evolve that (same) Pokémon on the same turn you use the spray (though you could put the evolution you remove onto another 'mon). Some of the exciting strategies I've been reading don't seem to take that into account. Unless I have missed something, of course.

    Although unlikely, I'm hoping that it means we get a FA Moltres to go with the FA Articuno and Zapdos coming in Generations.

    I hope so. I know Moltres wasn't suppose to exist but at least show it some respect. Plus I'm still salty they didn't make a full art Zapdos and Moltres. I even offered to do the art for free!

    That moment you realize that all tool-detaching trainer cards in format are at risk of rotation :)

    Is the card designer so lazy? the lugia is just the same as bouffalant. Why do not they just remake the bouffalant and make the lugia break into bouffalant break? that more reasonable

    I don't understand how Alakazam's ability is going to work. Once it evolves, it no longer has that ability, so are you going to have to reveal M Alakazam from your hand and use the ability before evolving?

    Chaos Town is balanced, but will probably see situational use in some decks. Alakazam-EX and M Alakazam-EX seem kind of underwhelming, but they will probably find a home in some combo decks, especially with such a low attack cost like M Scizor-EX. I do think the low attack costs in exchange for more balanced effects is interesting on these new EXs considering the speed of the current format. Although, I wonder how much of an impact this set will have on the meta compared to sets like Primal Clash and Phantom Forces.

    the only reason i think they put the ability on the Alakazam is because they're sticking to the tradition of only 1 attack on Mega Evolution cards. anyway, i assume it will work the same as other evolution-triggered abilities like the ones on bats....

    It's a little more complicated than that unfortunately...When Zubat evolves into Golbat, Golbat has the ability to add 2 damage counters. To be the same as Bats, and every other "When this Pokemon evolves etc..." ability, it would have to be on M Alakazam EX, not Alakazam EX. Once you place M Alakazam EX onto Alakazam EX and evolve it, it overwrites all traits on the original Alakazam EX. Therefore, it would no longer have the ability to activate.

    It would need to say something like "Reveal M Alakazam EX from your hand. If you do, place 2 damage counters on the defending Pokemon and 3 damage counters on up to 1 of your opponent's benched Pokemon, then place M Alakazam EX onto Alakazam EX. This counts as evolving Alakazam EX. You cannot use this ability on your first turn or during the turn you play Alakazam EX." Just as an example. It would have to have some way to evolve into M Alakazam EX other than the standard evolution rule.
