    • Aegislash - one word, ehh. The shield Forme sounds very weak in the dmg output. Plus, we already have one... as a Basic, although it costs M L F, and it does significant dmg. Blade Forme, still ehh. Although, 210 is a lot, it discards 2 M energy on a Stage 2. Not worth using Metal Saucer on it. Just use Zacian. 2/2

    That's a cool way to implement the in game mechanic, it would be cool if the shield form also had 10 or 20 more HP as well

    I completely agree. The watercolor art takes me back to the good ol’ days (the WOTC era cards always give me a nostalgic feel even though I wasn’t playing that long ago).

    Among all of the other problems going on with the TCG right now, I'm also getting tired of seeing the same Pokemon get multiple prints per year while others don't exist. Roggenrola, Frillish and Timburr are all in the SWSH games, where are their cards? Nah, here's the fifth Coaloassol and Aegislash we've gotten since Gen 8's TCG began instead.

    Aegislash I can understand (and kinda agree on), but Coalossal is a Gen 8 mon, so it kinda makes sense for it to appear more often. Furthermore, this is only the second (original) Carkol card, so had it not been that the same Coalossal tecnically got 5 different cards, I'm not sure you'd feel the same way about that one :p

    I do really want a Gigalith V card though, now that you mention that line haha

    hm... their abilities are just copy pasted from the XY base set Aegislash, but I don't mind too much since they were cool abilities. And their attacks... the effects are also copy pasted from cards we've gotten in the past year. Maybe not the worst in terms of being playable, and both have awesome artwork, but the card designers kinda slacked on these...

    You can dusk stone these so many they are a little more playable? IDK, still seems bad, especially with adp in the format.

    Still waiting for stage 2 HP to be the same or higher than our basic Pokemon V.

    Man this card is straight up trash compared to Zacian V.

    Shield is a worse Zamazenta V and Blade is a worse Zacian V. Next.

    Remember the days when 2 Prize basics had 170-180 HP and Stage 2 1 Prizers had 130-160? Now we’re moving into a stage where those same basics have 200-220 HP and stage 2’s have 130-170 HP.

    If Carkol and Coalossal have been confirmed to be in this set, then the question is will they say as Fighting types or will they make their Fire type debuts? Now is the time for the Gen VIII Pokémon to release their second elements for those whom haven't yet.

    We might see the First Fire type Coalossal card so I put Carkol and Coalossal in my partial set list (pls check it out) as a Fire Type

    Did TPCi seem to think that if they just put the two attacks on one card, it's be too broke or something?

    Smh. So daft.

    Top right: interested in what that card is, considering that's the FIRST TIME I've ever seen the illustrator of a card being labelled "GAME FREAK" :O :O
