    The ETB and the ETB sleeves are so ugly...

    Yeah, the top part of the box looks poorly designed while the sleeves lack any sort of background pattern on ‘em. The only positive seems to be the dice, they made the damage counter dice easier to use (no more situations where you’re using 2+ dice to display 60+ damage on a ‘mon) while I’m loving the sparkle effect on the flip-die.

    Pretty sure the sleeves have a muted background pattern, identical to the one of the box. Nevertheless, these are not sleeves that you should use, ever. I wouldn't expect Dragon Shield quality from a bonus throw-in, but these are dangerous to your cards.

    I'm torn, because I'm a huge fan on the new burned/poisoned markers (even though these effects are basically unusable with 300+ HP Pokemon). The glittered dice is also really nice, while the smaller dice are a 50/50 - the idea is great, but they look extremely plain compared to the ones that came in S&M.

    I wonder if the Gigantamax/Dynamax labels will actually be used, and how if so. Will there be a card that supports Gigantamaxes but not Dynamaxes (or vice versa)? At the moment they are functionally the same, but still have those distinctions. With that said, they might just use the distinctions since those are the ones from the video games, and explain why certain V-maxes look different from their regular form.

    The plain look of the dice was the biggest let-down of the new ETB's for me as strange as that sounds. I think even having the set symbol instead of "10" could have helped a lot aesthetically, rather than really boring numbers and colors. I dunno, I'm probably too salty about it, but I've been collecting these things for five years so it's a bit of a bummer for me, lol.

    Does anyone else hate how the card game interprets the vg mechanics? I didn't care for the fact Z moves were interpreted as GX moves. I just never got why the new pokémon with those moves couldn't have been "Pokémon-Z" or whatever and then had Z-moves instead of GX. Now we have these "V" Pokémon. What does the "V" even stand for? What did GX stand for? Nothing? All signs point to nothing.

    GX were essentially just EX pokémon with Z-Moves... so I guess "V" Pokémon are EXs that can Dynamax (potentially)? Seems needlessly complicated. Especially when they have "V" pokémon that have the special Dynamax and Gigantamax labels too.

    I know that's not the point of this article, but still. I dislike Pokémon V. Of course, a lot of these guys are pretty uninspired too, but that's not uncommon for an early set with a new mechanic to make cards that are just ok. Honestly, I like the abilities and such of the regular pokémon like Cinderace from this set more than I do the V pokémon.

    *In before we get Pokémon EGXV Team DynaGigantaUltraBeastMax that have 1000HP and your opponent takes 6 prizes upon KO.*

    Got the Meowth VMax box today and the jumbo card is smaller than they have been. About a quarter inch smaller top to bottom and on the sides.

    I've noticed that too... it really annoys me because now it doesn't go well with the rest of my jumbo collection, but even the Zacian V jumbo is bigger, which annoyed me even more because I thought maybe they changed the size for V cards... but turns out that they forgot to make Zacian and Zamazenta smaller too.
