    It's weird that like Stakataka before it, they made a third version of the Terrakion promo instead of using the Japanese booster box promo for the English prerelease.

    So if you get the Necrozma and a Recycle Energy on pre-release, you may as well win the event lol.

    So Amoonguss was SM202 if I looked closely,that means Fini, Necrozma, and Terrakion are 203 to 205.

    Besides Necrozma, all of these are pretty bad in a prerelease. Well Amoonguss is ok, but...

    Yeah, the translation for Cavern Counter says that all of the benched Pokemon must have damage on them for you to get the extra 150 damage, but the words on the English picture of the card appears to say that if your benched Pokemon has AT LEAST 1 damage counter on them, then you can do the extra 150 damage.

    It means the same thing though because all of your benched pokemon can also mean only 1 pokemon.

    Also note that the plural form of pokemon is also pokemon, and the official translation uses 'have' and not 'has'. This means that if you have more than 1 benched pokemon on your benched then every one of them need to have at least 1 damage counter on them.

    The text says "if your benched pokemon have at least 1 damage counter on them"

    nvm just compared it with Drampa-GX's attack and that one also says uses 'have' and 'them' so the official translation does change the condition for the additional damage - unless there is an 'all of' before the 'your' in the part that's being covered by the other card

    Yes, August 16th is the 3rd Friday of the month of the release of the set.

    This is why I am optimistic about Worlds, but also impatient.

    I want to know the full set of cards Worlds participants have to work with, right now!

    But I'm also optimistic, because this set is huge, so anyone who practices for Worlds, thinking they know what the card pool is going to be, may be receiving an unpleasant surprise, and show up to Worlds unprepared, having practiced on false assumptions for several weeks, as there will (hopefully) be a few cards in the set that are unexpected.

    Worlds will be like when burning shadows got released. There will be a lot of maybe decks and it will all come down to matchups and who is the better player.

    Tapu Fini is the blacephalon counter to end its run before worlds.
