    • Galarian Obstagoon - Since you are playing Zigzagoon tha drops dmg, maybe include this for some little hand distruption. 3-4
    • Tubro Patch - I don't know why they release this card when Vs are a thing? According to the tweet, "It's Max Elixir without the skill." I may not like this because this may lead to so many losses that I may acquire. 3 Geodudes
    The video give some ways. Can be used in some outrage decks, Stunfisk, etc.

    So, we are not getting any more type specific parches, and instead this unholy amalgamation?

    Woah. Not only is it an unimpressive card, but they're straight-up shafting GXes in favor of Vs.

    This card should read:
    "Choose a basic Energy card from your discard pile and attach it to 1 of your Basic Pokemon (excluding Pokemon-GX and Pokemon-V)."

    It’s so odd that Turbo Patch only excludes GXs and not Vs. some has an explanation on why this could be?

    I agree re Turbo Patch; it seems super weird. I was kind of hoping that Mewtwo & Mew-GX might somehow be viable towards the end of next year if the game pushed heavily towards V contra non-V Pokémon but this makes it look like they're just trying to completely squeeze out GXs as quickly as possible!

    Copperajah/Houndoom V + Spikemuth looks like it could be a great rogue deck! I might give that a try when it releases. (Maybe even Boss's Orders/Guzma) @Clam

    Energy patch is alright, but I really like that Obstagoon. It’ll be nice in Eternatus decks.

    Odd that Turbo Patch's art features fairy despite Energy Search excluding it

    Turbo Patch: Nice boost for selected decks such as Turbo Boltund V.

    Galarian Obstagoon: Decent card but I cannot come up with a deck that was looking for it.

    It probably excludes GXs and not Vs because they wanted to make sure 3-prize Pokemon were excluded. But VMAX are already excluded because it says it has to be a Basic Pokemon so, they're just trying to exclude Tag Teams, which most Basic GXs that will be left in Standard by the time this thing is released are Basics.

    I wonder if Turbo Patch was supposed to come earlier in the SM sets.

    Wait,except for Pokèmon-GX?
    So Pokèmon-V can use Turbo Patch?

    I think that the card was designed a lot earlier than we're actually seeing it... Hence the fairy energy symbol and just GX's can't use it.

    Good catch. Who knows, perhaps an errata is in order...
