    Holy moly that Ultra Necrozma is going to be broken with Galarian Weezing's inevitable Ability-blocking Ability

    (Or ya know, in Expanded with Garbodor and DDE)

    • Golurk - 160 for 2 energy or I say... 1 Welder? Yes. Vulnerable to Item Lock, heck no! 3-4 Geodudes
    • Ultra Necrozma - alternate atkr for Malamar/Ultra Necrozma since it uses the same AC as the GX. 170 for 2 is enough, KOs Dedenne and most basic GXs and it can use Beast Ring then fire it if the opponent drops to 2 prizes left. Gusting will become difficult so this won't be easily gust out. 4-5 Geodudes

    Galarian Wheezing will probably only block Pokemon V's abilities, and THAT better have a requirement.

    So there is one GX left to be revealed? Hope it isn't Caracosta GX ...

    It has been confirmed that there'll be 7 GX cards in Cosmic Eclipse. Right now we have Vileplume, Silvally, Alolan Persian, Volcarona, Flygon and Oricorio, so there's 1 remaining

    Card looks terrible to me. Once you play a supporter it will end up in the discard pile. Therefore the second attack will do nothing at all.

    Ultra Necrozma looks awesome especially when you consider that we also get Beastite to increase damage by 40 once Ultra Necrozma is able to attack.

    That's a hella interesting attack for Golurk. Might get better with SwSh base set, if we get our non-GX support and DCE back.

    I'll be highly surprised if Ultra Necrozma isn't banned from Expanded right away. Being able to do 200 damage on turn 1 (Choice Band + Silent Lab + DDE) is insane.

    You cancel out your own attack by using Welder on it.

    Glad to see Flygon get a GX. I hope its ability is at least interesting.

    It most likely will be. We already have 7 GX/Tag Team GX in Alter Genesis (assuming the baby trio is in fact one of them), I can't imagine there being anymore. Besides how else are we gonna get Carracosta GX when this is the final S&M set? If it was getting a promo box like the past gym Promo GXs recently it probably would've been announced by now.

    Speaking of gym promos, they come around every main set so we should be getting one last S&M batch with the release of Alter Genesis. I bet there is where the Trevenant & Dusknoir GX comes from. If so it will be the first (and likely only) Tag Team GX promo in Japan.

    I mean, we did get that Mewtwo-EX promo at the very end of the XY-era, so Carracosta could be getting a box by itself, but since Unidentified Fossil already is in the set with Anorith (and presumeably Lileep), I think it's a safe bet to say it's in.

    Hopefully, Flygon's ability does something to help get 3 Fighting Energy onto it because right now that's a difficult task.

    What's funny about this is that I'd usually say that could be difficult to find all of those pieces on turn 1, but Guzma and Hala drop in and do exactly that. I'm not sure it's banworthy because it's still really reliant on a stadium, but it's definitely really powerful for a basic non-GX in expanded.

    As for Golurk, it'd have potential to be the new Granbull in that it demands weird deckbuilding to hit for high damage, but we'll need more deck thinning and searching items in Sword and Shield for it to be a decent option. I guess a Supporter card that places itself in the Lost Zone or a Pokemon with an ability to place 1 of your discarded cards in the Lost Zone each turn would also work, but these are much less likely. It'd be fun to try getting a deck without supporters working.

    Hi yes I will like to take about ALL THE FLYGON GXs!! I never thought my favorite would get a GX.

    Edit: too bad it's fighting and not dragon...3 fighting energy per attack hurts too BUT perhaps Red and Blue supporter can help with that. I guess we'll see maybe the ability will be amazing as well.

    Ultra Necrozma lookin kinda good in Expanded

    Silent Lab + DDE allow him to do 170 T1, which can OHKO (fairly) relevant cards like Lele, and with band: Buzzwole, Lycanroc, etc and 2HKO everything else.

    You can also use Lance for 2 Altaria and boost that to 240 to OHKO Pikarom as well. Ultra GX for Sky Scorching Light, etc.

    He has a lot of potential
