  1. Graveler?
    GrAvElEr!?
    GRAVELER?!?
    NAAANI!?!??!?
    Graveler and no golem(at least on the box) is interesting
    Stakatana could be decent
    Stakatana's attack makes too much sense with the shutdown...
    where is tpci going with this set?

    Yesss, I love that Stakataka! Awesome art, and looks fun to use in battle, too. Aggron doesn’t look half bad, either. Does the first attack force any of the opponent’s Pokémon to suffer recoil for attacking Aggron, or just the target specifically?

    I repeat what I say few hours ago.
    - Alolan Dugtrio - ehh. Not loving it. Waste of Ditto, waste of space, even though it has good intentions. 3 Geodudes
    - Aggron - Weak to Blacephalon, period. 2-3 Geodudes and since Acerola is a thing, yeah. Your excuses won't work on me!
    - Baby Stakataka #HeyNick! - This can be a decent addition in some fighting decks. Don't use Stinger GX, it's so dum. 3-4 Geodudes
    Ahem! While you're agree on that, I still don't. You need bench setup is 1 extra Melcario, 1 Tapu Lele/Dedenne, 2 Support mons, 1 extra space. You just inserting 1-2 spaces for that Dugtrio to take that ability to activate. And the fact that it's a stage 1 with a vulnerable HP, not buying it and Blacephalon is still rampaging the format

    Those Ultra Beasts normally raise my expectations, a basic non-GX Pokemon reaching 200HP mid-game is crazy!

    Alolan Dugtrio: Hair Wall could be an interesting team up with other abilities that reduce damage. Melmetal GX, one of these, and a Frying Pan/Metal Goggles means that Melmetal takes 50 LESS DAMAGE. Impressive.
    Aggron: I want Bursting Baloons back now. Unfortunately not going to be viable until we get some more damage on that thing, plus Guzma is rampant.
    Stakataka: “Alright, what’s it’s ability? Stone Fence. Hmm... HOLY CRAP 200 HP. And it’s attack even mills.

    Just for insanity, but use Full Metal Wall GX in expanded with Sky Field and 4 Stakataka GX & 4 Alolab Sugtrio in play with the frying pan on stakataka for -140 damage. Then, play a lot of Acerola so that your Pokemon just dont die. Theb, play a Kartana GX after the acerola sk that it, while takibg 140 less damage, is able to swing itself back into the deck fairly easilt further prevebting it from deatb, and can rid yiur opponent of Special Energy. This actyally sounds hella fun ngl.

  12. I know this is Full Metal Wall so it makes sense here, but as a rule I don't understand why we can't get an Aggron line that is fighting to reflect the rock typing aside from the Magma one.

    I like seeing the alternate of Stakataka.

    For 5 billion dollars.
    And Mexico will pay for those booster boxes.
    Or maybe the Democrats will.

    So now the only existing Pokemon that have yet to get a regular English card will be Necrozma and Blacephalon?

    Stakataka is amazing on fighting decks like Buzzwole. It's even better than baby Buzzwole after 3 prizes remaining and you can also use Beast Ring on him. With Diance prism star, strong and beast energy, choice band it will be able to even 1HKO a lot of popular GX/EX in Expanded

    Stakataka with Counter Gain for mill? Looks like meme territory to me.

    Honestly, Aggron's first attack should only cost a DCE considering that's it's a stage 2, has a bad 2nd attack and Guzma exists. And even with that it wouldn't be great.

    A. Dugtrio - Maybe??? It's way too early to tell if it's worth to combine it with something like Melmetal&Lucario.

    Donald Trump's favourite Pokémon doesn't look that bad. If you are behind in prizes (which is not uncommon if you play stall), you have a 200 HP Basic Non-GX that OHKOs Zoroark and mills the opponent's deck for only one Counter Energy (if it has Counter Gain attached). Definitely interesting card for stall decks that rely on high-HP Basic Pokémon.
     
  20. Yeah I had that thought too when it came to a purple bordered Venusaur line too, and we haven't had this for the Victreebel line or Vileplume. Yet note for that last one we have in fact had purple bordered versions of Oddish and Gloom. Colorless Charizard I'm not as surprised on, there are a lot of 'flyers' that never get that treatment.
