    Well the regular non-GX attacks are all garbage except maybe Wigglytuff but most likely not.

    Mewtwo is actually pretty worthwhile when you consider tag team gxs

    There's really no point in talking about how bad these cards are, because they're simply meant for more casual players and their families to learn about the risk/reward of using GXs. I would imagine there's virtually no chance that these cards will ever make it outside of Japan (unless they're put into a similar type of product for casual players internationally).

    ...That said, I'm pretty sure Pinsir's three-energy for 160 GX attack with no added effect has to be, objectively speaking, the worst GX attack ever printed on a card. Might even be the overall worst GX ever printed, period. Quite hilarious tbh XD

    Will the deckbox "tin" be able to fit dice?

    I've literally never seen anyone play using actual damage counters before.

    Simple GX's art-wise, but appealing in their simplicity. I don't know, there's something oddly charming about the way they look to me? Call me crazy, I dunno.

    • Pinsir-GX - Ehh?! 1 Geodude
    • Gyarados-GX - Ehh?! Too expensive to deal with. 1 Geodude
    • Charizard-GX - To the pinnacle of EHH-ness. 1 Geodude
    • Wigglytuff-GX - Ehh?! Okay, but it needs a third energy and unaccessible to DCE. 1-2 Geodudes
    • Raichu-GX - Ehh lv.9000 1 Geodude
    • Mewtwo-GX - Ehh. Underwhelming. 1 Geodude

    Surprized people complaining about how bad these cards are. Personally, I'm a collector I just love the artwork on these cards. The only thing I can complain about is how expensive Pokemon TCG products are in Europe and as I am from Latvia, nearest cheapest location to order products are from Germany or the UK, But again due to Brexit and tariffs implemented make these products really expensive.

    The artwork is so bad compared to other recent GX cards :(.
    I wanted to collect Pinsir and Wigglytuff just for collection purposes, but I don't like their cards.

    Perfect for what they are, which is not for you. (unless you play Pokemon with kids).

    Hey, I would definitely give that Charizard a chance if it does 300 damage for only 4 energy (considering Welder, and the new Volcanion being announced)
