A clear image of Blastoise-GX, the best Pokemon in existence, has now been released! Previously we only had a partial image.

Stage 2 – Evolves from Wartortle

Ability: Solid Shell
This Pokemon takes 30 less damage from attacks (after applying Weakness and Resistance).

[W][W] Rocket Splash: 60x damage. Shuffle any amount of [W] Energy attached to your Pokemon into your deck. This attack does 60 damage for each card you shuffled in this way.

[W] Big Geyser GX: Attach as many [W] Energy as you like from your hand to your Pokemon in any way you like. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

When your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Resistance: none
Retreat: 3

This is the first card illustration for artist “sadaji.”

    With vaporeon gx and naganadel, this will be an slower, but very much stronger and much much bulkier blacephalon.
    If you decide to retreat with that item which heals your water mons for 30hp, surely you'll have a long time alive
     
  4. EXCELLENT CARD. This will be great with the new Blastoise.

    Not quite the same but the core mechanic of the main attack, as mention already, is a stronger Blacephalon. I'm a fan. I'm just worried if all the shuffling of water energy back into the deck would completely brick your future draws.

    Yea well, lets not forget since Blastoise is a stage 2, you need to input the Stage 2 engine as well. then you need an extra draw engine to get back the water energy you shuffled back into the deck, while still having to discard the energy for Naga. This is going to be bricky w/o future support. But at least Crasher Wake might be live all the time and you can cut down on the energy cost since you can recover them back

    You smell wrong. Nag is energy ftom discard blastoise is shuffle water from pokemon into deck. Not very good combo. You would have to have a reliable way to discard 2 to 3 energy a turn. And making sure u get those energys each turn.
    Sure during set up use ultra balls or treasuees aleays discarding energy , but just how easy would that be? What lady turn 1 hope u have 3 treasures discard 3 energy. Attach 1 to blastoise(squirtle atm) . Turn 2 lady again attach 1 to warturtle . Use treasure get 1 nag out. Use ultra ball get 2nd nag out. Use stadium get 3rd out. Turn 3 use lady again attach water to something then ultra ball 2 for blastoise. Now you have 11 energy on board. Dealing 270 with choice for 3 turns. Yes math adds up but can u pull that all off?

    I'm expecting a double Blastoise deck, not to mention super boost energy counts as 4 water and you won't discard it, which means you can keep recycling it.

    Blastoise and Blastoise GX is the best solution but I'm not very happy for this card.

    This is a deck that won't deal big damage in 3 turns (only on rare occasions), this is a build up deck, there's no need to rush and try all that so quickly, you're basically thinking big numbers, 3 naganadel in play is insane and ideal bench would be 2 naganadel, 1 Blastoise GX, 1 Blastoise and a space for something else, maybe a Volcanion Prism Star?! And your active would be of course a Blastoise GX. And don't worry about energy attachment you have aqua patch. This deck can work but since that crazy japansese stage 2 deck what deck doesn't work honestly? XD

    I love how Slowbro always has these wonky moves. Thanks to Let's Go it's been resurfacing as one of my favorite Pokemon again, and cards like this only make me love it more.

    I am reading on the card that it does 60x the amount of cards shuffled back into the deck, so I assume with that translation, that a super boost energy only adds 60 damage. It would still help using the attack though

    One more Naganadel deck, this is getting interesting, this monster is acting as a joker on this season.

    I see it as number of energy, so SBE should count.

    The new baby Blastoise will probably be needed for this, otherwise it will be difficult to get back the energy you shuffled back in order to deal high enough damage consistently. Naga is also needed to get energy on the board early game but it won't necessarily be able to carry the deck alone like in Blacephalon.
