    I wish they would do a better job with the holofoil pattern on the English cards making sure you can actually see it and for it not to be bleeding.

    Not bad for a Lightning Stage 1, though I do know that Electrode card can do a lot better in terms of power and game play.

    Interesting, but not entirely sure if this will be played over Lele due to Stage 2, bad attack, and 3 retreat cost. Of course you could Lance into it but that basically requires a Lele, and I don't think people would want to make this a deck of its own. Of course in Expanded we have DDE + Counter Gain but ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh still pretty mediocre

    Definitely needs some testing - once you Lance it out you do not need to be concerned about supporters ever again, unless of course your opponent knocks it out :confused:

    This could be a really fun card with a bunch of utility supporters in expanded, but you'll probably just get smashed 9/10 times.

    • Dragonite - Yes It can be Lance's but remember what Lance * requires, you can only use this card if 1 of your Pokémon was Knocked Out during your opponent's last turn. So this won't be a turn 1 thing unless you throw a Vulpix and sac it. Another problem for it is it needs a Lele just to search Lance then search for Dragonite. Another problem is.. Its a Stage 2 with bad RC and a bad attack. 3 Geodudes

    Nice consistency boost in Dragonite GX for sure. I could see this possibly having an affect on the GX's viability.

    I could see this being attractive in a non-gx deck that uses the magcargo+oranguru draw engine so you consistently get the lance <> out. But then having three benched support pokemon is not great....

    I appreciate the ability but I don't think this is going to see much play at all either.

    Maybe one off in Dragonite GX decks. Not more than that until we see some much awaited support for Dragon type.
