    Wont swell be out of standard by the time these drop?

    I've no doubt it'd be a fart in the wind if it was in play now,because S and M has options. Marshadows, chaotic swell.

    I'm referring to the devestating effect it currently has on the SSH era format. Zacian V, Zamazenta V, Crobat V, Eldegoss V. Tech'd.

    Will Ice rider calyrex VMax + Melony be good? I always wanted to play water type, and that second attack looks quite strong for me. I think the main problem is its weakness(ADP) though.

    Yep. But you can always play your own stadium. I mean it's something that depends on your opponent, it's not something guaranteed. I do prefer cards that do their effect on my turn for sure than leaving the effectiveness of my strategy in my opponents hands.

    That's one Deck LMAO. That's like saying to ADP Zacian that "it's still weak to Fire right?" It's still gonna do well.

    Won't your empoleon be switched off by it, seeing as it has a rule box?

    Shadow Rider VMAX worries me. I thought that VMAXs were gonna have high HP and not that great attacks to compensate but now we're getting VMAXs with both. This thing will break the game in half. Energy acceleration + Drawing is absolutely bonkers as an ability in addition to the high HP and the attack.

    I've been playing Pokemon TCG since Black and White Boundaries Crossed and it's saddens me that the thought of leaving this game from how broken and untested it is getting saddens me. This doesn't look like Pokemon TCG anymore. This looks like Magic the Gathering with how broken their cards for their Standard are.

    And here I thought we would be getting a shrine of punishment for rule box pokemon instead of a buffed power plant

    You (power plant) vs the guy she tells you not to worry about (path to the peak)

    I wonder if Path to the Peak was made with Expanded in mind or whatever new mechanic they're coming up with will not be considered Pokemon V...

    EDIT: I wrote this post totally forgetting that Power Plant is not a Sword and Shield card and thus does not affect Pokemon V. lol
