    Would've been cute on a Basic Pokémon, but too much effort for the Stage-1 setup in comparison to the eh damage output to prompt any play competitively.

    That Mawile is a nice card, It's gonna be fun to making that work.

    Wow this is literally...nothing. Why did they even bother revealing this separately?

    I love Escavalier! Glad to see it get a card. (Use it in a gen 5 playthrough if you haven't, it's a really fun Pokemon).

    This card however, is filler. I have no problem with filler though, not EVERY card needs to be competitively viable in some way, I don't play the game so it doesn't affect me in any way.

    Bisharp is way better than this for a single energy metal attacker. And it is hard to even use that card competitively in decks right now.

    If you really want to, you can get this Escavalier on turn 1 with the Crimson Invasion Karrablast.

    Yeah but what's the point? There isn't really a viable way to ensure there's damage on your opponent's Pokemon on turn 1, unless there's something I'm not aware of?

    This is just a worse bisharp. 80 damage isn't even that relevant

    Hopefully we get a card like accelegor who would pair with it. And that accelegor would have to say something along the lines of "the Pokemon attacked by certain lance last turn is knocked out this turn." Then we have something cooking here. Other than that this card is ass

    Its retreat cost is high, its damage output is low, and it's totally outdone by Bisharp.

    This isn't even the first Escavalier card from Gen 7. A flop in every regard.

    Remember mind jack was 160. 190 with band. Zoroark was good when there were no TTs. Even the lowest hp TT has 240.

    This is just as good as any anime filler episode.

    This might look like a small boost for Garchomp decks.
