    That Espeon looks great. Very efficient to power up and pairs pretty well with the new Shuckle-GX. Allure can even be a decent option in a bind, since we are going into a format without N.

    lol Everyone complaining earlier today about Shuckle GX existing instead of Suicune GX.

    How's that for timing?

    Suicune is amazing, the ability to stall loop by shuffling damaged suicunes back into your deck is super cool

    These are both p. good. The illustrations also look nice. I'm happy.

    EDIT: Oh, right, the other two...Suicune is meh and Tyranitar is ok I guess??? That ability can be a bit annoying.

    The Tyranitar has SOO much potential. Ability is beyond amazing, attack is decent, GX attack could be used to automatically send one of your opponents pokemon to the lost zone, and it has pretty hefty HP. I guess my main problem is that dark types don't have a lot of support, but we will see when more of Dark Order gets revealed. I hope we get something energy acceleration related so Tyranitar can be even better.

    Oh and also beware of Mosquito Johnny Bravo.

    So tyranitar is literally just A Marowak GX’s GX move. Over and over again. That is completely broken.

    Whoah! The ability on that Tyranitar is ridiculous. Too bad it's a stage two with wonky energy requirements.

    Suicune GX? And it is actually pretty damn good. Built in Acerola effect plus reduced damage is always a plus. Could see play in Greninja.

    OK, I really want to know what the Faba supporter and Lusamine Prism do. Waiting patiently for the translations...

    On another note: f*ck yeah Forretress. That second attack is probably some sort of self-destruction thing though.

    Using my phone's crappy machine translation, it looks like unown's ability gives you a win condition if you have 35 cards in your hand???

    If true, it's the king of all meme decks. I'm calling it now.

    The other Unown looks like you get a win if there are 66 damage counters on the board. That actually seems kind of doable in a casual setting.
