    What the crap, this is making me want to quit. But I won’t. I still haven’t reached 1,000 Goomy yet. Seriously, we already have Beast Ring, Beast Energy, now this overpowered beast piece of crap, why? Why do they want us to love ultra beasts? Why?
    PBJ
    Grass: :eek:
    260 HP::mad:
    Jet Punch: Oh, it’s back. Thanks guys.
    Elegant Sole: 190 OKAY I QUIT oh next turn 60 I guess that’s not too broken
    Beast Game GX: what the heck. Just what the heck. Okay, sure 8 energy, but if they poll it off with a Beast Bringer, they win. This overpowered piece of crap is going to make me quit the game and play a Beast charm box. Fun fact, I think the name of this attack is what Pokémon is doing: they’re turning the Pokémon TCG into a literal Beast Game.
    Weakness: Blacephalon, the UB, is the only thing that can kill another UB. It’s the Beast Game.
    Butterfree: A GOOD BUTTERFREE! They gave some love to a non-Beast!
    [​IMG] (it’s supposed to be that picture from the scene when Thanos explains balance)
    Beast Bringer: it’s the Beast Game.

    Hm this Blastoise GX looks fun. Has Synergy with the Blastoise from Team Up, and possibly the new Gyarados. If Rocket Splash does at least 30x damage its ok if more it will be broken.

    Now that I’m done ranting about the Beast Game,
    Blastoise: assuming it’s 30 (par with Melmetal) damage reduced, that’s pretty good.
    Rocket Splash needs to be 30x-higher to be decent and rogue-worthy. Baby Primarina makes this thing decent.
    The GX Attack, the most characteristic part of every Pokémon GX: blurry.

    Holy smokes!!! I can see this in a Quagsire/Naganadel and be forced to run Rainbow energy for that fast energy. Plus you also have Vikavolt. Unfortunately it is weak to fire so bad for match ups with Cake Pops, but a possible 6 prize?! Whoawzuh!

    In regards to Buzz/Phera GX, it could be run very similar to MagikWail GX -- Quagsire, Aqua Patch, Naganadel. Drop energy to discard, accelerate energy onto the bench, drop a grass or GFW energy on Buzz/Phera GX, beast ring, Guzma up a GX, Quagsire up the energy, etc. The fact it just says "energy" and not "grass energy" makes it a bit more abusable.

    I find this card hideous. Blacephalon is going to love the three easy prizes!

    Overpowered?? I know that I am not credible at all with the game, I'm going to have to say it's far from overpowered compared to other decks that have come out now or prior. Unless someone who knows what they're doing can prove me wrong, of course.

    And no, they don't want us to "love" only ultra beasts and just make this a game for only them. It's the same deal as 2013. They made an engine for Plasma, a relevant thing in that generation and they're building upon it sets during that generation. It's lasting longer than Plasma, yes, but it still applies. Ultra beasts are relevant to gen 7 so they're going to do something with them. And honestly, good on them for making them more unique than regular GXs. They very well could have just made ultra beasts normal regular GX cards and not have a cool engine built upon them creating fresh new viable decks in the format a lot of the time. I mean hey, the more the merrier right?

    I still and firmly believe that taking all 6 prizes within two turns is broken.
    I don’t know, how many UB support and UB cards have they created? Buzzwole, Ultra Necrozma, even the free retreat Pheromosa is featured in these other decks. I know that they don’t really want to force us into UB oppression, but it’s coming around to look that way.
    Come to think about it, they did want us to love Plasma, didn’t they? And yes, they are relevant, but they always seem to be busted in some form or another.
    And yes, that last statement is 100% true too. BUT, I really don’t like UB’s coming in and wrecking every normal Pokémon I know and love.

    I like Ultra Beasts tho...btw come to think of it, this could also be played with promo Lurantis. (For the short amount of time they will both be legal in Standard.) You thought Jet Punch on Buzzwole was good? Watch this...

    For all the complaining about accelerating grass energy: Only one energy needs to be grass. The other seven can be anything. You could use 3 DCEs, even (not that you can really accelerate those). Malamar, Aqua Patch, whatever, all can accelerate energy onto this.

    Aqua Patch only works for Water pokemon. The fastest would probably be Malamar, Vikavolt and Magnezone.
