    This is one of my new favorite artists-ever since they did that FA Roxie/Koffing that has crazy Splatoon vibes I've been a huge fan.

    It's probably going to be included in pre-release kits and theme decks. I don't expect it to see use aside from that.

    Looks bad i dont get why you would use this over a good card like Jirachi and that card doesnt end your turn

    This could be an OK setup pokemon, but I don't think it will see much time in play, especially with Professor's Research coming back into Standard.

    Plusle from CES is better because Colress is better than Shauna.

    The artwork is really good. Is this a new illustrator?

    Not quite new! Somewhat new though--they started in Burning Shadows. Here's every English card they've illustrated, up to Cosmic Eclipse.

    Utility attacks like these on low HP pokemon that will most likely get knocked out on your opponent's next turn really should just have zero energy cost.
