    First! Heracross seems pretty bad.

    Terrakion seems like another interesting card to build around like Alolan Exeggutor or Granbull, but it seems tougher to make it work. Shrine of Punishment with GXs like Tauros is prob easiest, but that's all I've got. Fighting + DCE for 200 is solid, but a single attachment would've helped its case a lot. 4 Retreat is interesting and worth noting for synergy with Pokémaniac.

    Terrakion smashes spread decks I guess, neat

    Heracross could be a good one of if you want to counter your opponent after a GX move too but I feel they could retaliate back to easy or it would be too late (e.g. Pikarom probably would have a benched copy set up and Reshizard would have already got a big KO anyway)

    I'm glad to see a Fighting Heracross because this is only the second time they've made one, with the first one being during Gen 3.

    I'm also glad to see Terrakion because it hasn't appeared since Legendary Treasures.

    Keep up the good choices, TCG.

    That just might work. I'm not sure what it'd use for an engine, though. Search options will be scarce and running something like Zebstrika can conflict with Terrakion. It may just have to to throw in Pokegear for Cynthia and Lillie. It's definitely something I'll probably toy around with in the future.

    Terrakion would be ok (sort of) in a world where DCE and Counter Energy don't rotate.

    Fighting Heracross?! I thought they were only a myth...
    Seems pretty bad, though. Might work against Pikarom or maybe Reshizard for a final push.

    Terrakion? That hasn’t been seen since BW, right?
    I feel like this would be pretty cool. Spiritomb UNB seems like the obvious choice, plus Shrine and a Dedenne. Slap a Buff Padding on it and it’s a 180HP 1-Prize monster dishing out 200 (220 if you can find some way to put a damage counter on Diancie <>) every turn. If you’re behind on Prizes with Diancie, that’s 260. On a 1-Prize. Every turn. Inconsistent as it may be, I’m gonna try this out someday.

    Imagine your a drampa player you had a bad first hand but you can at least can big wheel GX then your opponent throws this down and says gg

    You lost me at "Imagine your a drampa player".

    Terrakion doesn't specify how many Benched Pokemon you'd need for the effect to work, so one Pokemon on Bench with counters would potentially be enough...

    I imagine they're talking about Heracross with Ring Reversal, taking a game win by shuffling Drampa back into the opponent's deck (leaving them with no Pokémon).

    Took them 20 years to make a fighting type Heracross and it isn't even holographic...

    I wonder if this means we'll get a Mega Heracross, and if so, how the evolution would work. I hope they don't do what they did with Baby Pokémon and make them unable to evolve.

    I'd rather get Mega Pinsir, since IMO it looks better than Mega Heracross and it needs a card.

    Well, fifteen, but yes.

    If we're lucky we'll get some more of the remaining Megas used up in TTGX cards, but I doubt we're suddenly gonna get random Megas like Heracross that evolve from regular cards.

    • Heracross - The first atk is situational with the loss of Brooklet and Nest Ball, its hard to get it out easily and against a non-GX that don't run GX atks of some sort, you're screwd. Imagine with Normalium Z, Welder, and DCE, you can do 200 on the second atk. But we don't have DCE anymore. 3 Geodudes
    • Terrakion - the first Terrakion after LTR, and the atk is situational and harder to pull than usual. And its for 3 nrg attachments. 3-4 Geodudes

    For reference, here are the mega evolutions that have not had cards yet:
    Mega Pinsir
    Mega Medicham
    Mega Banette
    Mega Abomasnow
    Mega Sableye (will get a card in Unified Minds)
    Mega Latias
    Mega Lopunny

    I think that's all.

    I assume that if that happens it would be like the old Level X cards
