    No it will not. We've had this card before (Bianca) and it's not that good, especially without ultra ball to easily decrease hand size.

    I agree with that to be honest.
    Lillie was pretty similar, but the only reason it was played (from my amateur player guess) was because it could easily draw up to 8 cards turn 1. Not to mention the fact we had Tapu Lele-GX and Ultra Ball. Ever since the new turn 1 rules and rotation came out, it saw little to no play at all, even in Expanded.

    If decks play Octillery then they will potentially play a 1 or 2 of Korinna to prevent from dead drawing imo. If you have no hand you can search it with sushi master and then draw your hand back up.

    It being a rapid strike card will make it searchable with octillery though. Might be a good supporter to play in small quanitity if you run octillery.

    This is pokemon. If you have a bad hand it's because you have a hand full of dead cards, not because you don't have a hand. It is too easy to draw cards in general to make Korinna worth it even with Octillery

    Actually, that could be possible. I just think it won’t see a lot of play since we have better draw power now thanks to Dedenne, Magnolia, etc., but who knows? Maybe the Strike cards will change the meta a little bit.

    What about the Full Art Ultra Rare V’s? What about the Rainbow Rares? Where have they gone?

    Oh. Sorry. Should’ve read that. I just thought they said they’d reveal ‘em all by Tuesday.

    Why use this Korrina when you can Crobat and then play another supporter...? It's literally the same effect.

    Good point, but to be fair, not everyone wants to spend $15 a piece for a card that’s most likely going to give the opponent two or three extra prize cards anyways. A lot of people don’t mind, but I prefer not to spend a lot on my decks if possible. It IS one of the best cards in the format, but people still have personal preferences and budgets.

    I can't just look at these stunning (as always) FAs and not say something! Phoebe's TCG debut looks to be one riddled with Waifu Taxes aplenty, and I really don't mind, because the colors and lighting of Phoebe's FA are just delightful! I assume Phoebe is Kagemaru Himeno's doing, so that's another score for the mistress of Pokemon TCG art!

    Let's not count out our favorite Roller Girl, either! I love how dynamic Korrina's new FA is; She's clearly skating on water, the training ground for Rapid Strikers, but it almost seems we've caught her in the middle of her slipping and falling (much like her official art)! The trend of SWSH FA Supporters depicting them in actual locales rather than flashy backgrounds really lends itself well to FAs like Korrina's! Superb art all around!

    I think Dedenne rotates out this summer? We may need more draw support to fill the gaps.

    I mean, we’ve got Kricketune V coming in. Basically a bigger and better Oranguru.
