    Kyogre is really really good for water decks without aqua patch

    So if I'm reading correctly, Phione is the new Guzma that immediately re-shuffles itself into your deck as long as you have space on your bench.
    If they make a new bench-limiting effect, I expect it to see a lot of play.

    ...God I hope Phione's mistranslated and it's a Repel rather than a Catcher. Otherwise... That is super, super broken. Infinite Gust of Wind should not be a thing. I get that we needed a Guzma replacement, but not something like that.

    It might be mistranslated. Its wording in more in line with Suicune (LT59) than with Guzma.

    Woah... phione is unreal. That card is broken. As someone who always preferred to use escape rope over guzma to keep my supporter spot available, this is a dream come true!

    It's actually mistranslated, it says that your opponent chooses which Benched Pokemon to switch into the Active Pokemon spot.

    Wow. They just gave Karplord decks a monster alternative to Oranguru as the lead.

    • Phione - Infinite Repels. Still not the best. Letting the opponent choose their opponent is bad. 3 Geodudes
    • Kyogre - Accelerate energy without doing any sorts of dmg is bad. 3 Geodudes.

    If people still think that Phione = infinite Guzmas, it's not.

    Phione's ability is a Repel, which makes it much much worse. I'm pretty sure that TPCi wouldn't rotate Guzma just so they could give us an infinite number of them in a match.

    Kyogre: We’ll have to see what the Blastoise tag team does first. For now? Looks promising.
    Phione: It’s... okay. It’s kind of like Rotom Dex Poké Finder Mode. It’s cool, but nobody’s gonna use it.

    Even as just a Repel rather than Gust of wind, that Phione card would have been annoying with Brooklet Hill, if it didn't get rotated.

    Phione is a free Jet Geyser, which is a pretty good ability. It's not the best or anything , but it'll definitely be a handy 1-of in some decks, especially Water decks that may have additional synergy / ways to search it. Considering the other gusting options available, or the lack thereof, after the rotation, Phione isn't bad at all.

    People are forgetting we have Suicune from lost Thunder+ U-turn board that does that same thing

    Sure, Suicune works too, but you can use Phione without all the switching shenanigans, which makes it more splashable. Yes, you have to dig Phione back out of the deck if you need it again, but it's not an effect you wanna use that often anyway. Plus, this alongside Jirachi means you don't have to waste switching and retreats on Suicune and can save them for Jirachi. The only way Phione isn't better is if you need to be forcing random switches a lot for some reason.

    Notice they released the new Kyogre card right at the start of Kyogre's rotation into Pokemon GO Tier 5 Raids. The marketing machine at work, even in subtle ways.
