    Depending on the art or sprite mew is either the cutest thing ever or an abomination sadly this is one of the latter

    No it doesn't, the ability says "opponent's Active attacks" not own Active ot ability, so it's not as good as it could be.

    Mew will be a nice addition to lost march, considering spread decks are pretty much auto-loss at this point

    Drampa GX/Incineroar (30 more damage) and spiritomb could be a deck.

    WOW that is an unbelievably cute Stunfisk. I’m looking forward to trying these cards!

    Oh, yeah, Marshadow GX with that attack sounds like an interesting way to get around Spiritomb’s low HP

    In expanded, Spiritomb could be a crazy Hustle Band user: Frozen City, Attach Dark/Rainbow Energy, use its ability, and it hits for 160-190 just like that!

    YES! God I hate decks playing Tapu Koko just spreading damage and then doing whatever to take prizes, whether it'd be using Tapu Lele to move around the damage counters or just making everything weaker for smaller pokemon to get KOs. They may not be the best deck usually but they're super annoying to play against and when it comes I can just tech in the Mew and it would single handily beat spread-focused decks. I love it, I'll play a 1-of of it, play against a spread deck, bench the Mew and click the green smiley face 10 times whenever I do it. (Well, maybe I shouldn't be that rood. :p)

    Rage aside, Spritomb is a pretty cool pokemon for the ability, some genius is gonna put that to use, and as for the Stunfisk, it's okay. 210 damage with all pokemon damaged and band attached seems pretty cool. I still wouldn't call it the easiest thing in the world since you need damage counters on not only your benched pokemon, but the Stunfisk as well to hit that number, and since you're using DCE for the most part Rainbow Energy doesn't look too viable to simply attach and do energy switching shenanigans. Cool card tho.

    Y'all are forgetting about Hustle Belt. Rainbow, Grudge tick, Belt, and you're doing 130.

    Electropower helps too, and you can play a couple of Rainbows next to DCE with Counter Gain for the turns where you're behind on prizes.

    Oh right, Counter Gain exists. :p That's a neat idea, we just need to hit that combo a consistent amount of times. Either increase the count of Rainbow Energy and/or Counter Gain or find ways to search those specific cards. Alolan Ninetales-GX seems neat, but I feel it's a strategy to keep the concept purely prize 1. I feel like finding a way to make this concept consistent is gonna be the tricky part, then again that's every deck's 1st thing to figure out.

    Doesn't thunder mountain reduce it to 1 colorless?

    That's -1 [L] not [C] so it doesn't work unfortunately.

    It actually doesn't. Thunder Mountain takes away 1 Lighting Energy cost, not one Colorless energy cost so unfortunately it won't make things easier.

    Our choice of Stadium would be Shrine of Punishment anyway so not the worst thing in the world.

    Muk and Alolan Muk GX puts out the most insane poison I have ever seen. That was a wild ride reading through those attacks.
