    The classic energy cannon deck, definitely fun to mess with. Pory-z tends to be the ideal partner with double colourless, triple accel and recycle energy.

    Why do they keep printing Lickilicky? Am I the only one thinking it’s the worst Pokémon in existence?

    Not the worst, but they've been neglecting some of the best Pokémon, like Bellossom.

    Got both Empoleon and Falinks in this set, so personally I'm satisfied.

    No matter what Pokémon they put in a set, there will always be someone who wishes they put in something else.
    Also, I really like the Coalossal artwork, best artwork featuring the Pokémon yet.

    A bit disappointed that Carkol and Coalossal aren't Fire-type, but then we do have a good few years to go until we enter Generation IX.

    How dare a Stage 2 do 200 damage for 4 energies and not have an effect like “Does 50 damage to itself”. Hopefully anyone that took that survey on how to make the game better mentioned something about how Stage 2’s get absolutely shafted. This is a perfect example of it. This card is beyond unplayable.

    I think it's perfect. It shows how genuinely horrifying encountering Coalossal can be. It looks so alive

    tbh with this one, first attack is the better option, second attack is like a last resort kinda deal, but I agree, Stage 2's are shafted beyond belief since the introduction of Tag Teams.

    Ah, I see you're a man of culture as well. Lickilicky and Crabominable are the worst Pokémon in my opinion, followed closely by the Galar fossils and the elemental monkeys.

  17. Blissey-Z is back... kinda.

    I don't think it is as good, as Coalossal is a stage 2 rather than a stage 1, but it hits weakness on Pikarom and Eternatus which is a bonus I guess. It also gets the +10 extra damage, but it loses Blissey's incredibly useful ability. Blissey's ability really made the deck work well but Coalossal doesn't have it, and it's on a stage 2. I think Cramorant Vmax is just better in general, until Porygon-Z rotates.

    Lickilicky is funny

    Illumise is a Pokémon I despise. In Pokémon Go especially. There’s nothing likable about it.

    The Coalossal art is actually really nice. It actually looks colossal.

    This pokemon is about the goofiest thing imaginable. It has a coal stack randomly balanced on its back. It is so stupid. But the artwork, it actually makes coalossal look menacing. I don't understand what you have against it.
