    Oh wow was wrong about Popplio. Salandit sure was a weird option to pair with that Rowlet over Popplio...but also not because for me there is this weird fan-made connection here as this Salandit had been predicted to be in Dragon Majesty but it turned out to be Litten instead. So it's kinda like Salandit is representing Litten here since Litten took it's potential spot in Dragon Majesty lol. In the end it's nice to know we are getting this Salandit.

    Wonder why they couldn't throw Popplio in Dragon Majesty too then, it's Water type...

    He's just being negative, don't let the haters get you down bruh

    On another note, I think it's safe to say the Raikou deck will have Lost Mixer right?

    Do we really need another Salandit? Feel like we have had one in every SM set...

    Thanx bruh.

    I’d still rather use the Ultra Prism Salandit because of 70 HP saving it from the 2HKO from an unboosted Jet Punch and the 30 damage attack not needing an energy discard.

    Don't count on it. The promo doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the evolution pack you get.
