    All I care about is the Celebi.

    Quick translation program says it's 30X the Energy attached to....you? Them? Both?

    Amazing Bloom evolves all of whatever is on your Bench.

    Personally....big oof. IIRC, there's a Shining Celebi coming out soon anyway because of the movie, so I'll hold out for that one.

    I’m really interested in Alcremie VMAX. Gives some pretty decent psychic energy acceleration in a format where that’ll be lacking and has a good synergistic attack to boot. It could end up being too clunky in practice, and that weakness to steel is gonna hurt a lot, but idk I have hope.

    Also, I could see Togekiss vmax stall being a thing in the future

    Ya, the Eevee came w/ no surprises in the slightest. It also looks like Coalossal is set for a VMAX as well, w/ those generic attacks (90+burn is easy enough to understand).

    That Steelix artwork stole my heart though. I want just 1 of it. Its attacks make it seem like kind of a more expensive, bulkier, [M] variation of Regirock-V. Dunno if that's a good or bad thing though.

    I also feel like Togekiss-VMAX deserved the Sky Circus ability. That would've been so cool. As it is now, what's the plus of it over Starly? Doing 120 to the Active for the same Energy cost? Actually, it's not even the same Energy cost w/o Bird Keeper b/c it can't use Twin either. But now I really want to see a Sky Circus V or VMAX mon after seeing this.

    Amazing Zacian is a crazy addition to ADP - the deck previously had problems reaching OHKO numbers against mons in the format which also ended up making it worse than Zacian Combo and Dragapult V-Max, while also being slower to setup than Pikarom. However, with the loss of Jirachi Prism, the rotation of most good accel for Lightning + the continuous prints of sturdier V-Max mons, ADP only needs to get off Ultimate Ray to load a benched copy of Zacian and hit a OHKO against absolutely any V-Max in format, after Altered Creation GX - even Snorlax and Eternatus fall with an attached Vitality Band or a 'Goon tick. The fact that this is a 3-4 turns setup to win, no matter the deck you are facing, whereas most V-Maxes will be achieving their game-ending setups in 5-6 turns depending on single-prize/multiprize KOs, could probably lead to a resurgence in ADP decks.

    This new Eevee VMAX promo will be given out as a “Rock-Paper-Scissors” prize, whatever that means.

    At the end of Gym Battle events, everyone usually gets a sealed promo card (one of ~8 usually not great cards; e.g. Polteageist V is one of the “goods” ones in the current batch; some are common basics with alternate art) , the Swiss winner gets another, and then everyone plays rock-paper-scissors with the winner getting a special card. At least where I play.

    I think that Alcremie Vmax is my favorite Vmax yet. But where’s my Orbeetle Vmax? I’ve waited long enough, I’m getting impatient.

    • Celebi Rainbow - speed up evolving. 4
    • Zacian Rainbow - If we pay this attack cost, we can KO any low HP VMAXs. There's no P weak VMAX tho. 4
    • Zamazenta Rainbow - Okay. Mini Zamazenta VMAX but to clunky to get this rolling. 3 Geodudes
    • Togekiss V/ VMAX - some decks might take adv of this because this thing searches cards for consistency. 4-5 Geodudes
    • Alcremie V/VMAX - Since P got suck post-rotation, maybe this will go on a Welder deck, just whack some Horror Energy in there. 4
    • Ampharos V - This and Weezing, just Weezing. 3-4
    • Coalossal V - Even with Coalossal, its still expensive. 3-4

    I think that Alcremie V Max is going to be really big because it is blowns but with any energy that means that attaching a triple accel automatically boosts your damage by 180

    edit: I can't wait to see some crazy things with celebi

    I hope Gigantamax Coalossal doesn't get screwed over like Sandaconda.

    Alcremie V second attack could shut down a lot of competitive decks because of its ability to stop your opponents Pokemon attacking

    most of these amazing rares seem like they would be much better in expanded.

    ok the Zacian and Zamazenta AR are gorgeous and Ampharos V is great but WHY did they make Coalossal V without a VMAX??? This happened to Sandaconda too, and they're two of my favorite G-max forms :'((( Really hoping they just give them VMAX in a future side set or something cuz I will be super pissed if they just never get VMAX cards (along with Gordie FA please....)

    Togekiss VMAX looks very efficient, could be paired with the new powerful colorless energy

    I love Coalossal as a Pokemon, but his V form has some of the most generic attacks you can get. Ampharos looks quite good, and so does Alcremie VMAX, which is really just Blowns but it can utilize any energy and it's a 3-prizer.

    Togekiss VMAX gets its job done so much better by Charizard & Braixen GX too.

    (Also, Zamazenta doing 180 with a perk!? Power creep anyone?)

    Togekiss vmax and alcremie vmax seems decent. All the amazing rares get invalidated by the energy costs.

    The Ampharos gets good spread. Maybe it could be played with Salamence V or Morpeko VMAX.

    Its per energy card so tea would only do 80.

    They probably have, but they just haven't shown it yet. Looking at the set numbers, Coalossal V is 42 and Zamazenta is 44. If that doesn't scream Coalossal VMAX, I'm not sure what does. Furthermore, remember that neither Scizor VMAX nor Salamence VMAX were showcased before Infinity Zone leaked, even though Scizor V and Salamence V were.

    No it would use triple accel as 3 Energy bc Gardevoir does the same. Personally this looks really good with a welder/triple accel energy system. All you gotta do is throw in some horror energys
