The secret rare version of Solgaleo & Lunala-GX from Dream League has been revealed! The card is on a billboard that’s currently on display over the side of a building in Japan. Creatures is sure going all-out on their marketing this time around! Thanks goes to @fox_fantasy for the photo.

    First of all, this art is absolutely incredible - both this and the Special Art Reshiram/Zekrom remind me of film posters, which is really impressive to pull off on such a relatively small space as a card

    Second, based on the numbering, it seems Solgaleo/Lunala and Reshiram/Zekrom won't be getting traditional Full Arts in this set: #61 - Stoutland (CHR), #62 - Vileplume-GX (FA) (?), #63 Solgaleo/Lunala (SA)

    So they mass produced a bunch of garbage secret rares and then they whip this out. Pokemon you know that everyone loves these types secret rares more than your failed rainbow rares. So I kindly ask that when the first Gen 8 set (Sword and Shield) releases that you have realized your mistake and have done away with the Rainbow Rares.

    This card destroys Pikarom and Dark Box, but with as little discard recovery as we have it is pretty risky discarding 4 every attack.

    Do hope these character rares stick around for a bit instead of getting immediately torpedoed when Swish's TCG begins in December.

    I imagine here a crazy deck concept.

    Concept of the deck is to play this Excadrill, and try to get your whole deck into the discard pile, never having more than a few cards in it. Play Pal Pad, and IIRC there's a more recent trainer that lets you put item cards into your deck (this might be a supporter, I don't recall). Play those plus Brock's Grit and you can pretty much determine what your next turn's draw will be, or at least close to it, constantly sticking around 0 cards. Maybe include Oranguru also, alternate attacking with Resource Management and Excadrill. Would make the deck _super_ consistent once you got down to few cards in deck, obviously that would take probably too much time for this deck to really be all that good but... maybe with some stall concepts it would be playable? Stall plus ability to KO Pikarom and Dark box decks?

    We have energy recycler, lana's fishing rod and pal pad by the time we get both Clay and Excadrill. That's enough recovery, the attack is not risky at all. You are meant to turbo into items with Clay, discard the rest of filler cards, use Excadrill attack to the point you can use Eleventh Hour Tackle comfortably.

    My boi Excadrill finally getting some love <3 The deck concept is decent, mostly because you can actually attack with it before getting down to 3 cards (as opposed to Hippopotas) and with Diancie that alone can OHKO 2 (most likely) popular archetypes and Reshizard is also a 2-shot, except it will play lots of healing so not really. Giratina also walls it because of the resistance and can KO it back.

    As for the art, the card looks badass. May possibly build a deck with it and Clay since I really love the art and really love the concept of Clay as a supporter.

    You know they’ll be tossed aside after this set. Because we can’t have nice things continue, and clearly we deserve Rainbow Rares to continue instead.

    Pessimistic sarcasm aside, it’s most likely just for this set. But maybe if the response to these CHR’s is positive (which I think it is) and perhaps if sales are good, they’ll revisit this concept in future sets. It would definitely be nice if they did. The artwork for these cards have been top notch!

    You hardly need 4 of the two supporters, 2 is enough. Pal pad maybe will need a bit more until we're able to usefully retrieve item cards, but USUM Oranguru can get them if nothing else.

    Well, I mean if you thought it was risky, 4 of makes sense. I would almost never play 4 lusamine in a deck though, and 4 brock only if I wasn't playing lusamine and was doing something destructive like this.

    As soon as Excadrill was announced, I immediately built a deck around Zebstrika+Excadrill+ Clefairy doll. Very similar idea to yours, just get your deck down to zero cards then keep recycling Clefairy doll back into the deck. With 4 clefairy dolls and everyone most likely switching over to great catcher, you'll find that you can keep up the prize race while thinning your deck down very easy. The problem though is consistently recycling Excadrills. Running a high count of Brock's Grit was great but during the end game it became very hard to keep them rolling. I'm positive though someone is going to figure out the best way to play this archetype because it is a pretty good Pokémon :)

    BTW, Clay is NOT good with Excadrill. Maybe I built the deck the wrong way to play with Clay, but I ended up discarding waaaay more than I wanted to. Hapu turned out to be significantly better being able to grab anything I needed.

    You probably built it without Lana's Rod and Lure Balls, because using those two together along with Clay guarantees you don't need to use Brock's Grit to recover anything, and Clay can add every single recovery item you may need to your hand, between them Energy Recovery, Lana's Fishing Rod, Lure Ball, etc. Black Belt is also fantastic because when you're behind on prizes you can use any of Excadrill attacks for no cost, and well, Clay adds those too.
