    Now we are talking about!
    I'm gonna make a Persian deck with this and the kantonian Persian GX.

    If I am not wrong, we have to see yet Alolan Raichu, alolan Dugtrio and Alolan Sandslash as GX cards as for the Alolan forms final stage.

    What?! Smug Face is a crazy ability! But do we really need another tool for stall decks?

    Sandslash and Dugrtrio are now the only alola forms without a GX of some form, iirc. I'm hoping they give it to them eventually but with this era being nearly over I don't have my hopes up.

    Also, boy that ability is SPICY! I don't usually care about the game anymore but that brings me back to when I played in the nightmare days of Giratina-EX.

    the attacks are so so but that ability, maybe combine it with greninja+zoroark gx and some discard effects.

    I mean, I don't care for stall, but considering it loses practically everything to rotation as of now, I would say it's not really an issue

    Considering a good handful of non-GX attackers are going to become a lot less consistent with the loss of Ultra Ball and Nest Ball...yeah I'd say the ability is quite strong.

    Combine this with Black Market and you kind of just don't die for a while.

    So this literally can’t be touched by UBs or Tag Teams? Nice!

    Not all of them. Ultra Beasts without Beast or Rainbow energy can still get past it. Reshizard and Pikarom never run special energy at all, so they can still get past.

    i do doubt it means prevent attacks from tag team,and from ub, and from pm with special energy. Otherwise it's a trash.

    It says "and" Pokemon with special energy attached, Tag Teams and Ultra Beasts do no damage regardless of energy attached and non TT or UB Pokemon do no damage if they have special energy attached.

    Reread; you're right. Thanks for the clarification. The only way Reshizard can get past this is Double Blaze's secondary effect in that case.

    It could easily be read as an inclusive "and." It seems like the intent is to wall against any Pokemon with special energy attached. The wording could be clearer. Seems like it would have been "or" if the intent was to separate "Pokemon with special energy attached" into its own category.
