    • Hoothoot/Noctowl - same to Unfezant, its rare to be good. 2/3
    • Gastly/Haunter/Gengar - It should be all not just limited to P Pokemon kinda how Damage Swap works. 3/2/3-4 and the weakness will be similar to some P Pokémon now.
    • Musharna - ... 3 Geodudes
    • Hitmonlee - Hitmonchan must have the ability. 3 Geodudes

    oh god my worst fears have been realized, morpeko ultra rares

    That being said, I'm kinda loving the selection of Pokemon V here. Granted, they ARE all Basics, I know that's going to make some people unhappy (I don't really care much, I know they're going to branch out later on), but notably, they're picking some pretty strange choices for who's getting an Ultra. And you know what? I'm really liking that decision. Stuff like Torkoal, Cramorant, Dhelmise, etc... They'd never be getting an Ultra in the XY or early Sun and Moon days. It's very reminiscent of the ex era which did a lot of stuff like that. It's striking a really good balance between the popular ones and some of the more strange choices. I'm liking what I'm seeing. Besides Morpeko-V good god why would they do this this is a nightmare

    Safe to say boring GX full art style gone, These full arts are vibrant and colorful so yea reminds like a boosted version of EX textured full arts that I simply adore.

    Apart from the stuff already revealed, in in my opinion I think the stuff that may see some play is

    balloon
    cramorant V
    sableye V
    aurora energy

    Other than that the art looks really cool but effects are a bit underwhelming especially after Cosmic Eclipse and all the good stuff in that set

    Dhelmise V and Sableye V make me very happy. Both are among my top 15 Pokemon. I quite like Stonjourner, too, (despite it's kinda dumb face) so I'm glad it got a VMAX. I wonder if Dynamax cards will be reserved for Gen 8 Pokemon that don't have a Gigantamax form.

    rainbow energy is a big change instead of putting a damage counter on the Pokemon you attach it too you have to discard a card from your hand

    Translation corrections (more to come as article gets updated):

    -Thwackey: Double Attack > Double Hit, a move that it learns upon evolving from Grookey.
    -Toxicroak: Poison Up > More Poison, an ability that first appeared on Burning Shadows Seviper

    However, the move on the card does say Double Attack. ダブルアタック is daburu atakku. Maybe it’ll change in the official translation?

    Whoa, Dhelmise V? Dhelmise is my favorite, so that’s great news for me! Lots of great artworks, like that Centiskorch and adorable Galarian Stunfisk. I was hoping for a Galarian Weezing card to be revealed, but this will do nicely until then.

    Are Perrserker and Obstagoon called "Galarian Perrserker/Obstagoon"? That's interesting; I suppose it's so they can be affected by cards that support Pokemon with Galarian in its name like its prevos. Hopefully Galarian forms get more support than Alolan forms...wasn't it just Aether Foundation Employee, the Alolan Marowak from Forbidden Light, and the Psychic type reprint of that Marowak?

    Double Attack is Double Hit's Japanese name in the video games. It's also spelled "ダブルアタック" there since its inception in Diamond/Pearl.

    These V cards are so darn pretty, they really stepped up their game for the 3d rendered things. They actually look extremely appealing now.

    Also that Marnie full art will likely be so expensive because Japanese men are somehow obsessed with the female trainers I've heard.. (For example Ultra Prism Lillie is about 150 usd equivalent for them.)

    It's a sad day when Mawile is your best artwork. Not buying this lazy junk and Stonehenge Pokemon

    Oh, definitely. I still of course prefer 2D to 3D art, but I’m glad that the 3D ones we ARE getting have a really nice level of polish to them, much like something like BW-era Full Arts (not to discredit the XY ones, I love Uedas stylized renders). I mean some of these cards like that Sableye look absolutely fantastic. Plus the few 2D ones we’re getting to add a bit of variety too.

    I might just be excited for a new change to the TCG in terms of the collectible side of things, but I’m pretty confident in saying that This is a much better start so far than Sun and Moon base, I just hope we don’t get TOO many set bloating extra rarity versions of these like Rainbows. I shouldn’t get my hopes up though, lol.

    Lol, I suspect 10 damage means absolutely nothing when your Pokemon has 300 health. It's already apparent with Mew&Mewtwo.
    They could have just stopped powercreeping.

    I suppose it makes more sense in Japanese, with it just saying "Galar Perrserker". Could be interpreted both as "Galarian" and a special keyword.
