    They're definitely gonna censor that attack name lol
  5. FireLizard Dragon shipper


    Both Dittos look nice,especially since the VMAX one has the same attack as Mega Gengar.
    The Amazing Rares are pretty broken but is difficult to charge them up.
    Imagine charging up Yveltal at the max and Knocking Out every Pokèmon of your Opponent...

    The only viable amazing rare is kyogre with ADP, but the attack is not that great. If you manage to charge one kyogre than you can swipe off your opponent with caturday espurr, i'll try to make a deck out of it
  7. NicoNoo Meta/budget player


    Yeah, sure, what about the Darkness energy?

    All in all these cards could be fun in the right deck, but their costs are way too high for them to be anything except gimmicks. A shame multi prizers will keep dominating the format.
  8. Ilexon Aspiring Trainer


    Amazing rares are returning? I’m confused now why weren’t there any in shocking volt tackle, maybe they are only in special sets
  9. AshCo Ouchies!


    Ditto V?! I’ll take 20.

    Also glad that there’s going to be more Amazing Rares. I quite liked those and it’d have been a bummer if they just relegated that cool feature to six Pokémon in a single set-something about just the six of them didn’t feel “complete” to me.

    Now , those are good looking Amazing Rares! Makes me want to get them. If only there was a normal mail service from Japan :(

    Wow! A rectangular-shaped box lid on that Shiny Crobat V Box! What a novel concept.
    (Snark about our ETB's aside, I do actually like how this looks.)

    And I'm glad to see Amazing Rares come back!

    • Ditto V/ VMAX - Ditto V itself is awesome. It gives your opponent a surprise factor on what deck are you playing because you play Ditto. That's it. I don't see any use for it, maybe on a Centiskorch VMAX deck wherein, you swap it into Centiskorch V then VMAX to smash damage, I think. VMAX, eh. Except it can use Triple Axel. 4/3-4
    • Crobat VMAX - Just a plain Pokemon V card, with a very unsurprising attacks, eh. Just play Crobat V for a consistent ability. 3 Geodudes
    • Kyogre AR - I thought we're done with these ARs, secondly, we expect to see these in SWSH5 set. Anyways, on Kyogre, how do we this atk cost, sure Turbo Patch can be handy, but its on a coin flip so you expect to hit 1-2 times. Trumbeak can be helpful, but what if one of the energy found there wasn't the energy that we need? Aurora Energy, how do we get the energy back? We have no ways to recover special energy. 3-4
    • Reshiram AR - KOs Tag Teams for single energy, but how could be pull the three energy atk? 3
    • Yveltal AR - The attack will be translated as "Amazing Knockout" or "Amazing Doom" (bcoz the given trans sounds violent to the kid's game, no offense to the translators, I know they did a good job). Okay, we have a CC so means, Twin Energy but how about R, P, and D? 3

    If they copy GX atks, yes. But they counts as using your GX atk for the game and any extra effects on the GX atks, like the Tag Teams does, must be implemented.

    Amazing Death has to be the funniest attack name since God Damn Punch Incineroar
  16. Tytus Expanded Best Format


    In expanded you could Ho-Oh EX then ninja boy into the Amazing Rare Yveltal. then just a double colorless energy picks up the ko. Kyogre also seems very good in expanded as well as you could chain the 80 spreads.

    I did hope for shiny versions of the amazing rares we already got, but this is even better!

    Too bad they couldn't make a fairy one for say like Sylveon, Gardeivor or even Xerneas

    Ok so basically everyone choosing Yveltal
    Also that Crobat is good.
  19. Cue2Power Cramorant is Godly


    If Ditto VMAX can copy gx attacks, it will be a good counter to adp zacian, being able to use altered creation gx without needing adp. Also, I'm so gonna make an yveltal deck! maybe yveltal/ditto vmax, as altered creation+free knockouts is too broken to not be played!

    Edit: I hope adp has an AMAZING DEATH (just dont bring your cards to a funeral)
