    In spread decks the marowak could be pretty good!

    Ohh, I really like Energy Spinner! Another reinvention of Energy Search, but with a twist for first turn. Not sure how playable it might be though, only deck I could see it being a clear addition is probably Alolan Exeggutor lol.

    lol they converted the fidget spinner into a Pokémon card.

    I like how the Alolan Meowth teases a card we don't know of yet. Wonder if React Hammer will be revealed in SM8 or perhaps SM8a.

    We only just finally got those older gym promo GXs and now they bring out a new one. Can't wait for Alolan Marowak GX in May/August 2019's set. :)

    In the defense of the PTCGI, they probably started work on this set in mid-2017, when the fidget spinner fad still had some (albeit shaky) legs, but still, WHY???? Decent card though

    Looking forward to seeing what react hammer does! My guess is it discards an energy from play when it is discarded.

    What's React Hammer? Did I miss a spoiler? The name is intriguing. Maybe you can play it during your opponent's turn.

    It's probably just a Rocky Helmet reprint or something

    It's from SM8. We're currently translating the set list in yet another news story on the front page.
     

  11. I'm dying right now.
    The fidget spinner better not show up in the anime. The last thing I want to see is Ash and gang boasting individually colored fidget spinners and Pikachu spinning one on his tail. I-*cough*

    I'm actually going to throw up right now.

    Im going to complain though. Why is there a Fidget Spinner is my card game. I mean, out of all the good memes to use, like Bird Jesus, they pick a Fidget Spinner. I mean, really?!
     
  13. If you think this is insane you should see the new Unown cards.

    I see but it has nothing on a FIDGET SPINNER!!!
     
  15. I always thought TCPi was going downhill ever since that Incineroar from Burning Shadows had an attack called "G*d D*mn Punch"

    • Alolan Marowak GX - Playable more on to the GX atk. Since Lost Thunder is the set where it is focused on Lost Zone. Good on the finishing KOs. 3 Geodudes
    • Energy Spinner - Improved Energy Search and Professor's Letter. Let's fingers crossed that this will came out in US, since Prof Letter is gone in standard. 4 Geodudes
