    • Orbeetle - if you can turn 2 Orbeetle, getting out stage 2s is very very easy. Well, Orbeetle itself is a stage 2, so good luck. 3-4
    • Camping Set - searches card, pretty straight forward. It ends your turn so better use it turn 1. 4?

    camping gear could be decent

    orbeetle is a decent card in concept but i think it could be too clunky to actually be used

    Nice to see a more viable Lifesplosion in Orbeetle. Rare candy plays are a lot easier than Gen V/VI Fossil mechanics. It's even a colorless requirement this time, too!

    Tis a shame that Vs, VMaxes, & TagTeams are still gonna stomp all over such a deck, though. :p

    Yuru Camping Gear looks pretty great for turn one, but you'd generally want to search for a card you'd like to play immediately, not hold for the next turn. In terms of consistency, it's more of a "win more" card. I'm sure people will try it, but I'm not sure they will love it. If it sees play, it might just make already consistent decks be more consistent, rather than help newcomers enter the format.

    I really hope Orbeetle gets a shiny Gold Card. It would really make my day.

    And with heavy hearts we must choose Orbeetle over Cradilly in expanded because it's more consistent. You will be missed.

    Did you just say instant stage 2 playability? No basics, no stage 1s, no rare candies, no nothing? Is this the card we’ve all been waiting for?! (Which, ironically, is on a stage 2)

    Not really. Cradily is easier with Alolan Exeggutor and Rowlet.

    both cards are good, the camping gear might be better
    but the orbeetle is about to be insane
    in standard this card with 4 energy means getting out all the most powerful cards in the game no penelty
    not bdif off the bat
    but very very good
    and yeah its omastar basically

    Camping gear seems interesting I don't know how good it is at the price of your turn you get any card in your deck which seems pretty nice, although beware of Marnie if you are tempted to use this card :p

    Could you first turn get a blipbug out and try and find evolution incense and skyla and then the next turn use skyla to find the rare candy? It would sort of be like having 8 rare candies if you had 4 skyla and 4 rare candy, it would be your supporter for the turn though.

    Greens exploration could be better actually if you don't have many Pokémon with abilities in your deck

    That Orbeetle could possibly fetch a Stage 2 GX if you're up for some funny shenanigans.

    Awesome!! Lifesplosion is back and this time, it’s meant to accommodate Triple Accel and DCE!! It’s finally time to bust out my Hatterene/Orbeetle SSH control deck, hehehehe.

    Unfortunately Orbeetle cannot bench other Orbeetle cards ;).

    Lifesplosion has always been one of my favorite attacks in the whole TCG, so it's awesome to see one of my favorite effects making a comeback in the tcg. Is it better than Cradily? That remains to be seen. My decks that worked Lifesplosion thrived off of Lileep not being a basic by started with an energy accelerating Pokémon like Rayquaza or Shining Mew to pump Cradily so full of energy by turn 2 that he can't think straight. I'd like to see if I can do the same with Orbeetle.
