    Ah, so Red's challenge is to play using Bulbasaur as your starter.

    Also, before they do alt art prints, they have 10 other Sun and Moon supporters that didn't get full arts at all.

    Oh shit, we probably are gonna get a S&M premium box. I mean, there's so many alt arts and full art trainers we don't know where they're gonna be, they might as well!

    I think we'll be fine without a Samson Oak, Ultra Forest Kartenvoy and Misty's Water Command full art. They aren't exactly useful...nor would they make good full arts.

    Yeah, no. No one wants that. We don't need stuff like that in this tcg anymore. Anyone who thought it was a good idea is just enabling TPCi's nonsense.

    I kind of hope they don't release a huge Premium Trainers box. In my opinion the XY one was literally the worst product Pokémon has ever made. I would much prefer they put 15-20 packs instead of two packs and a ton of useless junk.

    1. XY Premium Trainer Collection was priced at $80 MSRP for 10 promo cards, 2 Packs, and cheap sleeves/deck boxes. It was overpriced and affected by secondary market value. It was one of TPCI's greediest moments before Hidden Fates imo.

    2. Players are allowed to criticize these shady business tactics. These are the type of things killing the TCG for people.

    3. It's worth educating those who are unaware. My apologies if you took my response personally or felt attacked by it. However I believe that your view on the subject is too oblivious. This is how they take advantage of players. It's unfortunate, but the facts are: XY Premium Trainer Collection was a scam that too many apologetic players gave into.

    The premium trainers collection was kind of an exploitation in my opinion at least.
    You can get all the cards from it in good condition for like $25 at most.
    Plus when it released both packs had already rotated into expanded(Primal Clash and Roaring Skies). Therefor stuff like Shaymin($50 at the time in standard) wasn't even a relevant pull.

    If you want to throw $80 out the window, go for it.

    I adore these Ooyama art trainers. I REALLY hope we get some of them in english, the simplicity about them is super appealing.

    It's nice that only part of some evolutions line got card on this set, like Pidgey and Trumbeak. :D

    Why waste a space on Pipikek considering that only Trumbeak is used? They didn't care about Toucannon, so really just don't waste the space TBH.

    Mimikyu is a staple for non-gx or gx non-ability decks (that don't use Green's already). You are locking your opponent out of any use of their abilities through the use of a single shrine of punishment (for Pikazekrom and Mewbox), or Roxie + Weezing. Hell, you can use Giratina for localized ability negation.

    Cottonee is a fantastic additional attacker for Lost March, seeing how big ReshiZekrom is going to be in Cosmic Eclipse. Too bad about no double colorless but we still have counter gain.

    The Eevee support is really cool. They want you to play the deck by using all the eeveelutions, and a single Eeevee of these setups your entire bench for that purpose. I "almost" don't miss Energy Evolution anymore. Too bad evolution decks are a bit boned come SWSH unless they give us ways to setup turn 1 easily.
