Garchomp & Giratina-GX, Heatran-GX, Grimsley, and More from ‘GG End!’

SM10a GG End has officially been revealed by the official Pokemon Card website!

As posted last year, it’s a Dragon-themed mini-set that will feature 54 cards. The “GG” refers to Giratina and Garchomp (Gablias) and could also refer to the common term “good game.”

It will release on April 5th. Thanks goes to Tunu for the translations!

Garchomp & Giratina-GX – Dragon – HP270
Basic Pokemon (TAG TEAM)

[C] Linear Attack: This attack does 40 damage to 1 of your opponent’s Pokemon. (Don’t apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokemon.)

[P][P][F]+ GG End GX: Discard 1 of opponent’s Pokemon and all cards attached to them. If this Pokemon has at least 3 extra [F] Energy attached to it (in addition to this attack’s cost), discard 2 of your opponent’s Pokemon and all cards attached to them instead.

    It's not that bad in Standard either, you can use Viridian Forest, Rainbrow Brush and (if we ever get it) Energy Spinner to get that Fighting Energy. Personally I like Rainbow Brush as you can find it with Alolan Ninetails when needed and you can change an energy you've accelerated with Malamar, so you're able to use your manual attachment freely.

    Oh, wow, top 3 worst? I never see that with Arita art (you might have been the person who said they didn't like TTGX art, was that you?)... I don't think it's all bad tbh. Much better than, say, Genesect GX and its somehow even worse Full Art.

    linear attack is a very linear attack. it gets a 2/5 litleo rating, just like the rest of garchomp and giratina gx.

    If Bidoof is going to be in this set, it will be interesting to see if Bibarel will be Colorless or Water (hopefully the latter, but I will be happy either way).

    Actually someone else said that. I PERSONALLY think SM Base Set Espeon GX is the worst, probably followed by Blastoise GX (and the hideous FA), Genesect GX and then this Giratina & Garchomp GX.

    Theres actually quite a lot of GX artworks I really don't care for now that I think of it. Maybe it's part because, oh I don't know, someone at Pokemon was like "hee hee let's suck all the soul out of our full arts and just give them blank backgrounds and cheap renders". At least that's what I feel like it is. The only saving grace are the RA/SR TTGXs and FA supporters. Other than that I feel like GXs can be super hit or miss compared to the overall generally positive look I have on EXs.

    This tag team is interesting, but I don't expect it to see play. Ultra Necrozma is better. Ultra Necrozma wins games with its GX attack. This doesn't. It's easier to use 3 psychic recharges to do lots of damage. Getting your opponent's pokemon damaged. It's interesting but not good enough.

    I'm 100% sure dragon support is coming.
    It's like the charram from Unbroken Bonds. We were like "it's too clunky" and then welder was revealed.

    Hm, no definitely not me. I like simplicity (which is why Tag Team GX's are not really my cup of tea) but I like this one quite a bit because it's fairly simple/symmetrical, plus the color-scheme looks good.

    To the people saying that Zinnia is the best Dragon support currently: this is a Dragon themed set. They gotta print some Dragon support right?

    It's easier to use 2 Psychic Recharges and a Distortion Door and then have an attacker that doesn't need to get benched again than it is to have an attacker that needs 3 Psychic Recharges and needs to constantly go back to the bench. Baby Giratina makes damaging their board easy, and for 3 Energy total you do more damage than Ultra Necrozma. GG End can also help you with erasing something on your opponent board that is threatening, like a mon with a bunch of Energy stacked on it in NagaQuag. ChompTina also lives a lot longer with 90 more HP. A PikaRom for example is likely not going to be able to OHKO ChompTina, unlike Ultra Necrozma. There is definitely a very strong and fair argument for ChompTina over Ultra Necrozma.

    You lose against lost match and other non-gx decks, though.
    That is the reason ultra necrozma is good. It's your auto win to lost march that the deck most definitely needs.
    And don't say that malamar can just prize trade with baby tina.
    If we're going to compare stuff, what's easier:
    Attaching an energy to a jumpluff/natu and taking a KO
    or
    Having a free retreater in the front (preferably jirachi), 2 minimum malamar on the bench (if you go this route you need an energy), and a tina in the discard.
    My point is that lost march just needs an energy and an attacker, and malamar needs a fully set-up bench.
    Guzma makes this task very hard.
    The matchup can be swayed with spell tag, but no one plays that right now, and you definitely won't be playing it with the dragon type (what's the ship name) gartina (?).

    Wow, an attack-cost decrease that specifies a specific energy. This is a pretty interesting card then.
