    It has immunity to Zoro. Other than that this card is absolute garbage.

    • Shuckle-GX - Now this is called a gosh darn good card. So so so many Pokemon that do a decent damage for fewer energy like Zoroark and Buzzwole. What kills it is atkrs that cost XCC or 3 energy at within one go. Having a good weakness is a plus on Shuckle. Still Baby Shuckle, #HeyNick! is the best one which helps energy Accel A LOT! 4-5 Geodudes

    So, you can annoy any DCE attackers but you take years to ko them in turn.

    Pretty hilarious card all in all.

    Shuckle has always been a mildly annoying Pokemon to play against in the video games ... I guess now it's a got a GX analogue?

    A good wall. Now let us have a good hit-and-run attacker to partner with it. Since the attack potential of Shuckle-GX is like barely above that of a wet noodle.

    ITS REALLY GOOD
    But only against like two decks.
    And also, I would like to say that Wrap GX is the BEST GX ATTACK IN THE ENTIRE GAME.
