    there is N O R E A S O N that the fossil names change. I absolutely hate it.
    The items were awesome to use, but the fossils they searched for didn't actually evolve from mysterious fossil... WHY?
    It makes no sense. I'd be angry if they changed the basic of a line and they literally do this every generation. I'm so salty about this.
    At least the relicanth is fossil support, I like when relicanth has "living fossil" attacks.

    Thank you so much for making this post. I actually had no idea. I'm doing a TCG Pokedex project where I'm trying to get one card of every Pokemon in Japanese and English -- this makes my life a lot easier lol.

    Probably won't go back and buy every single JP set, but knowing that it'll just take the first 3 English sets to complete the Galar Dex is pretty nifty (assuming I can scrape together the $$$ in time)

    Arctozolt isn't the first one to have this ability, gengar from crimson invasion had it and it was meh
    literally a ability reprint
    actually maybe a worse one
    gengar was a stage 2 but it had free rt and a better attack
    it's a poor gimmick that won't see play, sad because i kinda like this pokemon
    hopefully they put some respect on Arctozolt in the future

    What I'm wondering is if the ability procs once or twice in that case, since both energy are attached at the same time.

    It's twice! Once per Energy!

    I wasn't a fan of the restored mechanic introduced in Gen 5 (considering the luck-based aspect), but yeah I do agree that it warranted reworking.

    I would think not as Mysterious Fossil didn't and even though Unidentified Fossil didn't have that clause, I believe it didn't either.

    Unidentified fossil gives up a prize. It has to specify that it doesn't give up a prize (like Lillie's Poke Doll does)

    Or the original Mysterious Fossil.
    In any case, I pretty much misremembered.

    So im hoping that the rest of the fossils are gonna be as interesting as this one and I also hope they add some fossil support that works for both rare fossils and unidentified fossils.

    • Klinklang - Love this Klinklang. Spammable 200 dmg is nice, especially the fact that you have Twin Energy. Being a Stage 2 tho. 3-4

    With a metal patch and a twin energy this actually hits pretty well. All you need is one of the pre evolutions on the bench. You can also boost the damage output via Galarian Perserker and vitality band. Not a bad card might be fun to mess around with.

    They need to give single-prize evolution lines more stats. For example (buffs are in bold):

    Klink – Metal – HP90
    Basic Pokemon

    [M] Call for Backup: Search your deck for a [M] Pokemon, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.

    Klang – Metal – HP130
    Stage 1 – Evolves from Klink

    [M] Call for Backup: Draw a card. Then, search your deck for a [M] Pokemon, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Shuffle your deck afterwards.

    [M][C][C] Spinning Attack: 110 damage.

    Klinklang – Metal – HP190
    Stage 2 – Evolves from Klang

    [C][C] Simple Beam: 90 damage.

    [M][C][C] Clockwork: 200 damage. If there are no Klink or Klang on your Bench, this attack does 100 damage instead.

    Nice, a new Klinklang. I'll probably try this one out. Since the new Special Darkness Energy is 99/100, I'm thinking we'll get a Special Metal Energy in this set.

    That's too much for not fully-evolved Pokèmons.
    But the Klinkklang attack is good.

    Here's a serious question. Why isn't Stage 2s at 220 HP at this point? Thy should be as good as Vs. Also, that attack should be 250 or so. 200 is subpar for a Stage 2.

    If the HP of Klinklang was a bit higher I think this card would have a good chunk of potential. But sitting at 150HP I think hurts it too much. We need to make Stage 2s as powerful if not more than Vs.
