Diggersby From ‘VMAX Rising!’

A new Diggersby has been revealed from VMAX Rising! The set will release in Japan on February 7th.

Diggersby confirms that like Sword & Shield there won’t be any Dragon-type cards in VMAX Rising, as there is no room between Duraludon (#58) and Bunnelby (#59).

Diggersby – Colorless – HP130
Stage 1 – Evolves from Bunnelby

[C][C][C] Mountain Toss Rush: 30x damage. Discard up to 6 cards from the top of your deck. This attack does 30 damage for each card you discarded in this way.

[C][C][C][C] Headbutt Bounce: 110 damage.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 3

Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translation!

    Interesting how they can "get away" with not printing Dragon cards, because nothing is weak to Dragon and Fairy no longer exists. It is a weird choice, though.

    the issue with this card is that there are better non gx attackers that are probably weaker but are more veristile like volcanan not only does it do 110 fo 2 energys it also helps a lot with early game by getting energy on your side of the board (yes i know you need 4 energy in play to do 110) I get it, this is just a filler pokemon but still I want cool cards like Giratina (the one that could revive itself) and not a bland card with a gimmick thats still nothing intresting.

    How is this not interesting?

    Honestly I can see a deck around this with excadrill and a lot of energy recyclers.
    Lysandre's trump card would be good

    Hmm... are they low key trying to tell us that they’re planning on doing away with Dragon-types as well? I suppose we’ll find out when we get the first Goomy (or any other pure Dragon) card of the SwSh era.

    i should rephrase what i said i think its a interesting card making the user of it have to deal with a bit more resource management i just dont think its good because we have better non GX attacks although not to sure about colorless

    Still you just burn cards. I hate strats where you need more than 3 cards just to make one strategy to work. That's what Card Burning defines of.

    • Diggersby - you still putting yourself at risk. You are pushing ur opponent to win the game. Still. Also, you don't hit for weakness. I know, up to 6 but 180 is very ideal. 3 Geodudes

    I like this card. 180 for a TCE (or a Welder+attach)? Seems like a potential option to me. Especially if you're playing a deck that doesn't mind self-milling. 180 Turn Two damage on a one-prizer is hard to beat.

    With the numbering of Duraludon, Bunnelby and Diggersby, I have an extremely bad feeling that Dragon-types aren't going to be supported anymore either.

    I was thinking exactly the same thing (unless of course, they surprise us by making them the Fire-type, seeing that in Mythology, Dragons breath Fire).

    So 3 separate Dragon lines appear as their other type, and Dragapult is again Psychic-type in the next set. Not looking good for Dragon, though I will point that 2018 had 5 Japanese sets without any Dragon-type cards in them (4 of those sets were consecutive).

    Yay for Falinks, Morgrem, and the apple family debuting.

    No Sandaconda VMAX is surprising, but IIRC that also happened with some Pokemon appearing as EX then getting their Mega EX later on?
