    • Vikavolt - ehh?? At least we got a new Vikavolt, yay!! Actually it can OHKO anything for 4 nrg, tnx to Electropower, but the drawback that you need to discard all energy without proper energy recovery, no! 3 Geodudes
    • Eevee - Cute

    Vikavolt looks interesting, to say the least. It can do 220, but for 4 energy on a stage 2 and you have to discard all of them. No!

    I could use Secret Hood in budget Shock Lock to combat Garbotoxin, Scoop Up Cyclone it all back to hand.

    I like the 2nd attack on zeraora. In expanded, u can use eelektrik. Aromatis' nd attack is op, any special condition. Cough cough paralysis. And u have fliptini

    • Aromatisse - cool effects but it doesn't do enough. 2-3 Geodudes
    • Zeraora - the 2nd atk needs to spammable because if it has 4 energy and an Electropower, OHKO Gardevoir. Why it NEEDS to be spammable because we don't have a reliable energy recovery for L types, something like Malamar for L types (of course it's Eelektrik in Expanded). The typing is bad, the HP is bad, 3 Geodudes

    Zeraora could be put in ray decks

    The thing with this is it has no cap.
    It is kind of like a necrozma GX.
    If you find a REALLY bulky pokemon (and there are going to be a lot of those soon),
    then you power up this to take a knock out.
    At the moment, the only real option to accelerate 3-4 lightning energy a turn is magnizone
    but there really is no great way to get the energy back (maybe a heavy count of energy recyclers and 2 ribombees on the the bench), and if your opponent targets down your magnimite/magnizone then you lose.
    Keep this card in mind though, because, just like necrozma, something will come out to accelerate the lightning easier than magnizone and poof! Zeraora decks everywhere.

    On Aromatisse's second attack, I don't see how コロン Koron translates to "Lure" at all (maybe there's something I don't know there). It seems to me like it's actually supposed to mean "Cologne", which makes sense with Aromatisse's scent theme.

    Magnezone, zeraora with fisherman? Maybe with shrine too? Idk, seems like it has some potential

    I second this—"koron" has been translated to "cologne" on past Aromatisse cards, so that seems to be the most logical translation.
