    Is it just me, or does the card image for Zygarde look like it says they do 20 more damage, not 30?

    These are both solid cards.

    Mill will always have a place in the meta

    Zygarde GX is still an ok card but needs a little damage boost and it accelerates energy also.

    If that Zygarde stacks it's gonna be nuts. If this translation turns out to be correct, then it will.

    Also I love the concept for Alolan Marowak's first attack, probably my favorite attack concept I've seen in awhile. Don't think it's competitive but it's still cool.

    Zygarde is good now.
    I've had it in the back of my mind for a while now, 70 (with Diancie) is the PERFECT number to hit right now while powering up for turn 2.
    Now, Zygarde can actually kill stuff, it's not stuck to 2 shotting.
    I'm so excited.

    Zygarde is playable now, excellent

    With 3 Baby Zygarde on the bench + Diancie, baby Zygarde does 100 damage for 1 energy, not including band. With band baby Zygarde ITSELF can OHKO Zoro, Pikarom, etc. + energy acceleration

    Not to mention that (hypothetically, not realistically) Land's Wrath can do up to 260 with full bench of Zygarde + Diancie + Band

    Really love the Marowak artwork. I said it before, but imagine this card with some subtle, oldschool galaxy holofoil in the corners. I'm in love.

    Marowak + Hiker = nasty.

    Think about it: most decks carry multiple copies of their heavy hitter, so drawing a Necrozma to OHKO a Necrozma is feasible. And if the opponent carries TTGXs, then ouch.

    I disagree that Zygarde GX was not good before this. It's never been stronger than right now with 2 of the 3 top decks in the Meta right now weak to fighting.

    Baby Zygarde undeniably looks good on paper. Realistically tho, Zygarde decks are already heavy on the bench because of rockruff/Lycanroc (usually 2) and a baby buzz and a Diancie and a Lele. Who comes out? Baby Buzz? (looking at PikaRom....) Maybe. Lycanroc's gust is too valuable. Diancie? Maybe since his going to the lost zone sucks.

    Baby Z's energy acceleration is fantastic and it makes him a strong starter. Having 2 on the bench can also lead to OHKOs of the 60hp starters. And is retreat of 1 is sneaky good. Brooklet Hill...

    Really interested in that new baby-zygarde :)
    That's one of my kid's favorite Pokémon, so there's some deckbuilding to think with that card. The grass weakness is annoying, by the way :(

    With both Zygarde-GX and Baby-Zygarde accelerating basic fighting from the discard, maybe Viridian Forest could be a good stadium too, perhaps a bit better than Brooklet Hill wich can be replaced by nest balls.

    That grass weakness completely sucks. Flippity Flap!

    U-Balls are fine to get enough fighting energy in the discard . Viridian Forest helps the opponent too much. I like the new fighting prism stadium more.

    Not sure if straight zygarde or 1-2 baby techs in zygarde lycanroc would be better, thinking the latter is more versatile. OHKOing zoroark or Pikarom for a dce on a basic seems nice.

    Marowak seems good, but situational ... maybe has potential to make Alola box relevant with the other marowaks and a sandslash draw engine. There’s that one supporter that gets 3 Alolan Pokémon from the discard, that’s never been used by like anyone, ever lol

    Zygarde is good for the [F] energy acceleration alone. So, quad baby Zygarde+Diancie+Fighting Dojo?

    goddamn, and just with this tag teams have a counter deck. The one single problem I see tho... is Tag Team decks using a small Marowak + Hiker engine to counter other tag team decks. After all, it was surely genius to make the attack costless.

    Zygarde alone is a very good attacker 2 zygarde plus diancie on the bench plus choice band and shrine or fighting dojo... all well accelerating energy its the new buzz shrine.

    Alolan marowak... cute card bud don't think it will be reliable someone will probably try to prove me wrong but its kinda just a cute idea
