    okay slowbro is epiccc, i guess fliptini can help it and ummm i guess aqua patch and dce can power it up in 1 turn, potentially 300 damage is cool but also a potential game loss so yeah

    Kartana seems like a neat one-off in some decks and also i guess false swipe can pair with the buzz+phero tag team GX move

    That Slowbro is quite a nice joke card. You have a 12.5% chance to do 300 damage, 37.5% chance to do 200, 37.5% to do 100 and 12.5% to lose the game. If used with Victini, you can reduce the chance of losing the game down to 1.6%. Doing 100 is pretty good on a one prize attacker for 3 energy, but since you have a 50% chance of doing 200 or more, Slowbro can actually be quite excellent.

    Hitmontop could also be pretty good, depending on what Hitmonlee is like, since doing 60 damage to every Pokemon on your opponent's field is pretty nice.

    So the combo is: use Hitmonchan 30 and retreat then hitmonlee do 90 to any pokemon and then hitmontop for 60 to each pokemon?
    Sounds... long and difficult. Probably a bad but fun rogue deck.

    No reason for a card like that Slowbro to exist in a legal product. That card should be in a joke based set that isnt tournament legal.

    • Slowbro - cool gimmicky card. Victini can help because the chance of getting 3 tails is low. Minimum of 1 Heads is 100+30 and KO Blaceph and any fire GXs in its range. Not a nuts card, and don't expect this thing rock tournaments. Bit expensive tho. 3-4 Geodudes
    • Hitmontop - 3-turn setup, no. It's so clunky and having very annoying RC of 1 sucks. So how do we attach 1 F to one of them and Escape Board them at the same time, whether you barely need Choice Band and can retreat once per turn? 2-3 Geodudes

    Slowbro's Brilliant Wager has a 1/64 (1.56%) chance of flipping 6 tails in a row and losing the game, assuming a Fliptini is in on the Bench.

    If you choose to reflip Brilliant Wager coin flips with Fliptini each time you only flip 0 or 1 heads, you have a 75% chance of hitting 2 or 3 heads for 200/300 damage (First round of flips has a 50% chance of yielding 2/3 heads; if it fails, then the second round of flips has another 50% chance of 2/3 heads).

    If you do opt for this method of reflipping each time your first round of flips yields 1 or 2 heads, you'll have an expected damage output of 187.5 damage per Brilliant Wager attack, with a 1/16 (6.25%) chance of ending the second round of flips with 0 heads.

    187.5 damage for [W][C][C] with a 1/16 chance of loss sounds on a non-GX sounds decently strong, but the 1/16 loss chance in a game where you're attacking 6 times means you have a 32.11% (1-(15/16)^6) chance of losing on flips.​

    Look at that Slowbro art, simple and therefore very effective. This is the real Bro!

    I honestly laughed out loud! That's some good stuff. Victory Star Victini is Slowbros friend...

    I am so unlucky that i can see myself using Slowbro's attack with fliptini in play and still flip 3 tails two times lmfao.

    ...And in expanded, you can tech a Slowbro from Breakpoint, so that in case you have 1 prize left, you don't have to risk losing the game - and actually use an attack that guarantees that you'd win the game! :p

    Slowbro is not that bad. With Victini on your bench you are rarely ever going to get 3 tails as long as you're conservative with reflipping, and you can hit 200 pretty easily. You can power it up with Aqua Patch and DCE as well.
