    Draw Energy likely not going to see any play, 1 card isn't enough.

    Yikes, that Heracross is just... how do I say this, well sucks.

    Meanwhile, these GeNwUnNeRs are composing about this “ugly remake of Pinsir”.

    Why did they stop putting name of the illustrator on special energy cards?

    Who cares if you draw one card, it's a single colorless energy that isn't searchable. Highly doubt it will see play.

    • Heracross - No TCE, No CB, 120 is expensive and awkward to deal with especially bunch of Pokémon does have 130 HP. 2-3 Geodudes
    • Draw Energy - Ehh. For Porygon-Z decks this could be a nice one, Special Energy will become more awkward nxt rotation. The only way to search it is Red's Challenge. Yeah. Other than Porygon, Ehh. 3-4 Geodudes

    Good more ammo for my Porygon-Z deck.

    Cool art on both, but wow is that Heracross ever useless. Can't even OHKO Psypoke TTGX, presumably the card it was meant to counter... unless Blastoise and Piplup only have 240 HP, which would be pretty insulting

    are there any auto-pick up abilities in either expanded or standard? If there is, there's a loop here with Porygon-Z and Unown Hand for an auto-win situation. I doubt TPCI would have made that mistake, though, so there's probably nothing here. Even if there is, it'll be banned asap just like expanded Unown Damage.

    I don't know of any abilities like that, there should be a couple trainer cards like energy reset, as far as I know. HGSS has Unown RETURN, but that's legacy and only when it's played from the hand.

    You can search it out with Porygon from Unbroken Bonds. I mean yeah it's an attack, but Porygon Z might be the only way this sees play so it's worth mentioning.

    Team up rapidash is already good. In theme format.

    I don't think I've ever heard anyone call Heracross that. Most 'genwunners' are fine with gen 2.

    Should've known Fighting-type Heracross GX was too good to be true. Hopefully Victini gets the GX treatment!

    I think draw energy will see some fringe play at least, despite many negative comments.

    Cowardice wishiwashi auto picks up, but discards cards attached to it
    Lopunny from flashfire also auto picks up, including cards attached, but being a stage 1 and no BTS means it wouldn’t be a loop.

    In unlimited however, BTS, lopunny, porygon2, porygon Z, unown HAND...yeah that’s another busted T1 win deck

    Really? All Gen 1ers I know hat Heracross for reasons stated.

    Hey, that's clever!

    How many other decks in Unlimited also get t1 wins with Broken Time-Space, though? Surely there are more than just this?

    Oh ya, there's Shiftry Donk, Sable Donk, and Blastoise/Espeon/Foretress (and more) that also aim to win T1. Pretty busted format.

    My wife, family, friends and I have a list of custom rules that make unlimited playable, which is ultra fun :) Draw Energy will actually make me have to give Lopunny the ban hammer...lol...
