    I like Mew's ability even if it is very niche.

    these 3 were obviously meant to be played together - could be decent since Electropower is a card that exists

    Mew looks interesting. Nobody has seemed to notice that it’s an auto-win against spread.
    Spiritomb actually looks like a pretty good deck. You have Mew to prevent spread from walloping your deck, you could use Shrine and Banette GX to move damage to Spiritomb, and you could hit for numbers like 210, provided Choice Band, Kukui, and 5 Damage counters.
    Stunfisk got a good card! There’s two things that make this card the best that’s been revealed:
    • With 6 damaged Pokémon, you’re hitting 180 for a DCE, 210 with a ‘Band, and even more with Electropower. This could totally play Shrine and have a bunch of benched GXs, and one of them Banette GX so you can damage Stunfisk. That seems clunky, though, so I’ll hold on to that one.
    • THERE’S GOOMY IN THE BACKGROUND! WHEE, AT LAST! And I just realized, holy crap, are we gonna get another Goomy line with Stunfisk in the background? Is there going to be the unlikely chance that we’ll get Goodra in a tag team? Who knows! Three cheers for Goomy in the background!
    Anywho, seems like a load of decent cards here, ecspecially Stunfisk.

    Then you could play mew with the bench barrier so your opponent can't clap you with flying flip.

    I didn't think this needed to be pointed out since this card has already been printed twice, it was just called Mr. Mime then :p This one has a sightly more useful attack though.

    • Mew - Bench Barrier on a Pokemon that is Elmmable, but 60 HP can be a bit embarassing. 4 Geodudes
    • Spiritomb - In speaking of getting 2 Spiritombs in 2 consecutive sets, the Spiritomb's ability is good unless there is a Damage Swap ability in Standard. 160-190 can KO most Pokemon. But the tendency to be KOed nxt turn really hurts. Because you are running Stretchers to get it back. #CardBurningRocks!!! 3-4 Geodudes
    • Stunfisk - 180 for DCE is nuts, but you need to be self-hit on a Flying Flip or use Po Town to get the damage. I have the idea of using TUP Alolan Muk there, you get +30 dmg and discarding the item that they need. But Lightning decks run Electropower so even with a low dmg, it can even been boosted. 3-4 Geodudes

    Dude, you don't need Po Town or to be hit by Koko, the answer is literally right above Stunfisk.

    There's no need to put a useless GX into the mix, if you want to use Po Town instead of Spiritomb for whatever reason (to counter Alolan Muk I suppose, altough these three will be in Standard after Muk rotates) just use the 70 HP Froakie, the shuriken Frogadier and Scoop Up/Z-Devo Spray.

    Well i mean it beats the build with spiritomb

    And it loses to everything else because you need too many combo pieces as opposed to just having Spiritombs on the bench. Besides, Po Town will rotate anyway.

    Which Gyarados do you mean? The barrier is only against opponent's Active attacks not against own attacks ot abilities. Unless you mean in general for TEU Gyarados?

    Spiritomb might also work nice in a Marshadow toolbox type deck.

    it also works with the Dragon Majesty Gyrados. it has decent damage output but whenever it takes a hit it's 20 damage to each bench

    I get it, all Mimes with Bench Barrier were just transformed Mews before.
