    YESSS, finally the designers of the game are actually trying to make balanced cards.

    I know I'm the only one in the world who plays it, but this is GREAT for singleton.

    HWEH! SHAYMIN’S BACK!
    “discard your hand”
    Oh.

    So you’re telling me that Zebstrika is better? Granted, 160 HP, fighting weakness, and no effective attacks does hurt a bunch, and combine that with the fact that we already have Abilities like Instruct, Smooth Over, Trade, and Sprint in the format, this doesn’t have much going for it.
    THAT BEING SAID, everyone went crazy over the previous Shaymin EX even after Octillery was released. I still like the card A LOT, and if you play Shrine and Acerola in your deck already, this card fits right in. An extra consistency boost never hurts. Having that boost as a liability does, but alas, here we are.

    I like it. Hope it’s not $60.

    Never have been a big fan of discard and draw cards. I know Lost March won't play this unless all the Jumpluff are out already.

    I'd like to say Dedenne GX has a great synergy with Electromagnetic radar, which is a great target as well as Tapu Koko GX. I can see that Dedenne GX and Electromagnetic radar will take place of Tapu Lele GX and Ultra ball in heavy lightning GX deck. Happy to see Zeraora GX become better and better.

    Glad it's once per turn, people don't realise how annoying and irritating it is having somebody spend 5 minutes taking their turn.

    *angrily mumbles something about other card games for your opponent taking 20 minutes for their first turn and then not being able to even play your first turn*

    **Thorough and detailed reading of hand is key. Unintentionally takes 10 minutes**

    Dedenne-Gx should have attacks for colorless energy not electric, so it would be like shaymin/tapu lele/zoroark

    This will probably stabilize to be 15-30 dollars If I had to guess. Are we getting Guzma reprinted?

    I believe that dedenne is going to help in decks like buzzwole where there are not many peices that need a certain of order of play, because of the discard it is not like shaymin at all and will be used as a way to (for example) faba or acerola for support and still get sufficient draw, its also not broken because you can discard lots of important cards and without vs seeker you can't get certain supporters back effiectiently.

    Raticate is making the face that you will make when you buy a booster and his foil card is your rare card.

    Same with Gardevore/Sylveon.
