    Someone is going to complain about how it is not the best card in the meta game, I guarantee it, but hey all the Pinser fans are lucky with a GX that can top 100 damage. (hemhemhem Emolga EX)

    Why don't they print a nuzzle pikachu(aside from the promo one, aka cheap and easy to get). With emolga and all the electric support, Riachu could be interesting

    Wow.
    40 damage for just 2 energies is INSANE. Pair this with a protection cube, and the possibilities are endless. Not to mention, at 70 HP, this guy is a MONSTER. And the metal resistance? I'm not gonna lie guys, this card has the potential to change the entire TCG metagame.
    I just don't know why they would put such an obviously broken card in a promotional blister. These are gonna sell out SO fast. I'm predicting that the card alone is gonna be worth at LEAST 20-30 dollars within a few days of its release.




    I'm being sarcastic lol

    That Melcario one looks cool
     
  17. Very strange that they have chosen the Theme Deck art for the 4-Pocket Portfolio. I believe this is the first time they havent used booster pack art in the SM Era.

    More Strange is that they avoided using the Charizard/Reshiram art as from a marketing perspective thats guaranteed preorders and sales. (Not that Mewtwo and Zeraora arent)

    Strange choices is all im saying.
