    Psychic AND Fighting? Nice addition for Gardevoir decks....too bad there isn't a good one now.

    this could do pretty well with Ultra Prism Silvally GX, as it covers the memory types we lose in rotation.

    Diancie Prism works. Fighting Dojo works if Gallade has a Basic Fighting energy attached but Karate Belt does not work at all with Gallade since he has no [F] in his attack cost. You could use Counter Gain instead of Karate Belt to reduce the attack cost if you are behind on prizes.

    What about a deck with this Gallade and LOT Gardevoir? Since this only requires [C][C], you still have room for [Y] energy. Shame that DCE is rotating, but Mina + manual attachment should be enough, and Gallade can move the energies to Gardevoir.

    Expanded idea: this and Secret Spring Gardevoir GX allows you to take care of the attachment for the turn and you can use your supporters for disruption.

    Problem is for a Stage 2 deck you probably won't have a ton of space to dedicate to disruption...

    Amazing type coverage for an extremely cheap, colorless attack. Easy OHKO on PikaRom AND retreats an energy back to the bench. Makes me thing GardeBox could be a thing.

    This is amazing for post rotation. Its a Tag Team killer.

    I got info on Rosa if it is okay for you. It is from Mr. Antoine

    You can only use this card if 1 of your Pokemon gets Knocked Out during your opponent's last turn.

    Search your deck for a Pokemon, a Trainer card, and a Basic Energy card. Reveal it, and put them into you hand. Then, shuffle your deck.

    Dimension Valley makes it 1 cost, meaning you can attach strong, use diancie, and choice band to hit 190 for 1 energy. Not tbe best but you also move that energy so like idk

    I wish Gardy GX had this for standard last year, but atleast it can be awesome in Expanded.

    For pokemon that are weak to fighting and resistant to psychic, like zoro, what does the damage calculate out to?

    So you would deduct the resistance first then double it. But IDK if resistance is after or before calculation.

    It always goes "Weakness, then Resistance". So you'd hit for 220.

    That Rosa uh...seems really good.

    I know "after getting KO'd" condition is usually not that great of a condition but...it's a guaranteed recovery play. Get KO'd, grab a Pokemon and energly for a counter attack, and then grab Reset Stamp as the trainer card and punish your opponent immediately for KOing you.

    Seems good on paper (get it, cause cards are printed on paper? Okay sorry I'll stop talking).

    Gallade is interesting. Sucks that Dce will be gone though. There is Tae but that's kinda chunky. Being both Psychic and Fighting opens you up to so much support. (Treasure, Diancie Prism, Dojo, Malamar, in standard) (Dimension Valley, Strong energy, Korrina and more in expanded!) 120 damage is a fine 2 shot considering the previously mentioned support. Dojo + Diancie can boost it to 180! (+ Spell tag or Bomb for 22o or 280) The Energy move is relatively unimportant. This could find a place in Meganium decks.

    Rosa is a really good comeback supporter. Unfortunately it will be harder for Tag Team decks to use considering that there may only be one turn in the whole game where this can be used. It's kinda like a more limited Teammates. No complaints here.
