    this can be used outside of Gardie, but itś much easier if you can energy evolve into it.
    this with team plasma Magnezone would be busted.

    Yet another Eevee card. One would think when they print an Energy Evolution Eevee it would kill the need to have another in the format. Just a waste of paper at this point. Would love to see some other Pokemon at this point that don't have a card in S/M yet. I'd love to at least see a Vaporeon-GX.

    I can see some good uses for eneporter. It's good for energy denial and stall decks for sure. Move the energy to a useless opponent and let it waste away there. It gives another option for when you run out of hammers since you don't want to play too many of them overall. I could also see a play where you eneporter to the active pokemen and then use a team flare grunt to knock it off if you don't have another option.

    This one would be fun to use in casual tournaments. Rainbow Energy would be useful for pancham and pangoro. There is also Altar of the Moone plus escape board. Damage mover is also handy if more than one of these Pangoro would be used in a deck.
    The card does look decent enough for casual play, in my opinion. But there may be more cards that would help Pangoro; again as my opinion.

    I hope so too. What with Palkia GX being a water type next set and the aqua patches we have now, NTM Glaceon GX; which could really help out Gekkouga(Greninja) GX water decks.

    This card is a bit too niche for my taste. Especially when enhanced hammer is already a thing.

    That's a good way to go. But risky, as Lele has to have at least 5 energy and 1 choice band to knock out Zoroark GX with 2 DCEs on it. It's Zoroark GX's "over 200Hp" that makes it hard to OHKO him using Lele GX, in my opinion.

    • Eevee: Adorable artwork, but no one will play it over the SUM Eevee. 2/5 solely for the artwork.

    • Sylveon: First attack: This is a really good attack as is, but if you can choose if you want to use it or not it will be sooo much better. Second attack: Not horrible, but not anywhere near good. 3.5/5
    Could be a good 1 of in quad Sylveon and Gardevior for the first attack

    Actually it’s the 4th eevee the last set had 2 versions? Why is it required? If they don’t print another one it would take 3 years to rotate out all previous eevees. It can be odd sometimes though gengar ex rotated once but a M Gengar was a promo and stayed standard, but you couldn’t use it obvi. Lol

    So are we getting this set in English as well? I'm curious because Collector's Cache has it for pre order in the English booster box section.

    Oh really? Uh-oh, I call myself an Eeveelutions collector and I haven't even been keeping track :p

    Now that you say it it is quite redundant. Even though I appreciate how the Eeveelutions get so many cards, I don't really like how some pokemon get absolutely no cards at all (Bonsly, Happiny, Kadabra - I'm looking at you Uri Geller)

    I think I want to try to play Quad (Quint...?) Sylveon with this. And splash a little Tapu Lele for the toplels

    (SHL) means Shining Legends. You're thinking of the Burning Shadows Marshadow-GX

    I guess it could potentially see a little play in expanded with XY Base Delphox as just a way of dealing a little more damage, but overall, kinda trash. Or some people might play it with something like that Infernape from ULP...?

    2 Stage 2s, NO!

    • Delphox - Worst Weakness, worst RC, worst Attack. The fact that this doesn't synergize with Volcanion hurts this card so much. Too bad that it can deal 150-200 for 4 but you'll exert too much effort to do it. Hugh! Greninja is our only hope, but I doubt that it'll be expensive given that their pre-evos has 2 AC in their attack. Hopefully it won't happen. 2-3 Geodudes
