These Pokemon with "[C]: Set-up effect." are quite useful on pre-releases, or even just in general on kitchen tables. When it's very unintuitive for a new player to put a bunch of Trainers in their deck, these types of Pokemon are quite intuitive.

Shinji Kanda's work reminds me a lot of Tomokazu Komiya's, except a little less cursed. I don't like how busy some of Kanda's card artwork is, but this Absol is pretty good. Slowbro SVI and Ariados LOR are my favorites from this artist so far.
