    Not bad at all.

    Why does it say it evolves from Drumstick? I think it should be Vanillish

    Seems like a decent ability. I feel like its attack should be better. Maybe along with 90 damage flip a coin and if heads discard an energy of your oppenents active Pokemon.

    If you have space for this as a switcher, then you also have space for Jirachis, which are infinitely better.

    Its like the old Vanilluxe but better because its an ability and with the new stadium your chances of not getting paralysis are 25% before you switch and stuff. This could be very good if someone figures out the perfect deck for it. Also rip 2011 format. Before massive basics were a thing.

    Jirachi Prism Star says "before putting it into your hand", but it is not going to your hand, thus you discard it (and send it to the Lost Zone immediately)..
    I think the new stadium applies to attacks only, but if it can affect abilities, that's really interesting!

    Vanilluxe is a really good stage 2, since paralysis is the strongest condition for a reason.

    Unfortunately, Switch is a 4x of in the current format, which means the only value you are getting out of it is your opponent wasting an additional switch card. Maybe when ADP rotates out, and the opponent doesn't need to take 3 KOs which means they will burn out their Switches without winning? Eh, even then I doubt it, cards like Ultra Necrozma-GX could be printed once again, and depending on the format, Galarian Rapidash may become a staple.

    Hmm that's awkward. We know Galarian Darmanitan is in our English set but there's no room for it here thanks to Vanilluxe's reveal. We'll find out soon in a few hours I guess.

    How did you come to that conclusion? Could be 24/25 or 28 to 33.

    From that, we now know that Vanillite and it's evolved form Vanillish will also be in this set.
