  • I can't lie about these cards. Not saying they're Mega Audino EX levels of busted for Starter Deck cards, but still.

    Why are the most busted Gen 9 Gym Leader cards the ones with a collective IQ of a Moldy Pickle?

    That's how all his proxies look.

    JustInBasil covers over the Japanese name and effect text in a photoshopping tool, then types the English translations of each, leaving the well-known rule boxes, stage plaques, etc., untranslated, and puts a stamp in the bottom left.
    I will need to see Kofu's dialogue as well as his mishap before I can judge if he's a dunderhead. It could be an honest mistake, it could be in character. His script will reveal all.

    Because it is more relatable in todays society.
    Top 10 Pokémon that will likely have an ex in the near future. (Revised with the sets that I they might come from)
    10. Brute Bonnet (IDK)
    9. Iron Jugulis (IDK)
    8. One of the Nidos (GTR)
    7. Kingambit (SCB)
    6. Primarina (IDK, but the other 2 Alolan Starters have ex cards)
    5. Rayquaza (PDR)
    4. Archuladon (PDR)
    3. Lokix (SCB)
    2. Persian (GTR)
    1. Baxcalibur (PDR)
    Now that Pokemon confirmed that Stellar Sylveon and Ceruledge aren't coming to Stellar Crown, my theory that Pokemon is saving them for a box that releases a month or so before the release of the set has become more likely. It would certainly make July's release lineup a lot less drab.
    *Insert theory that Glory of TR means that TR's Handywork from Fates Collide is getting a reprint here*

    *When you think Snorlax Stall will at least lose it's mill Supporter come rotation but Team Rocket's Handiwork gets reprinted.*

    By the time GTR shows up, Snorlax will have already left rotation in Japan.
    Unpopular opinion: I don't think Terapagos ex is going anywhere in the competitive scene.

    Probably true enough if it has to fight its way through Raging Bolt ex/Ogerpon ex, which could OHKO it even with Bouffalaunt and Bravery Charm to give it bulk. 240 damage a turn on a basic that could afford to exchange 2HKO's would probably be playable in a format without a similar deck that can take OHKOs on everything.

    At least Terapagos ex could probably trade better with single prize decks, since it can stack two defensive boosts to Raging Bolt ex's 1.
    I think the new Galvantula from Night Wander has basically rendered the Stellar Galvantula fake.
    Charmaster:)
    Charmaster:)
    Why? They can still have back-to-back Galvantula. We've even seen back-to-back Pokémon from Japanese sets released in the same English set, like Sinistacha ex in Crimson Haze and Sinistacha in Mask of Change both being featured in our Twilight Masquerade.
    Top 10 Pokémon that don't have an ex yet, but likely will in the near future.
    10. Flutter Mane
    9. Yveltal
    8. Iron Jugulis
    7. Necrozma
    6. Kingambit
    5. Lokix
    4. Zeraora
    3. Primarina
    2. Archuladon
    1. Hydrapple

    Yveltal already got a few EX cards in gen 6 era but more would be nice I guess. Along with more Charizard EX 😁

    As in, modern-day ex.

    Well, looks like Archuladon became Number 1 after Stellar Miracle showed off Hydrapple ex. Would've appreciated a Stellar Dragon-type card, but something that bring the pain to Charizard works too.
    I see Terapagos ex having 1 of 2 functions.
    1. Search your deck for up to 3 basic Energy cards and attach them to your Tera ex Pokémon in any way you like. Then, shuffle your deck.
    2. This Pokémon can use the attacks of any Tera ex Pokémon on your Bench or in your discard pile. (You still need the necessary Energy to use each attack.)
    Pecharunt ex (or some variation of Evil Momotaro) being in SV6.5 now feels like a given due to the Loyal Three IRs being in the IR Special Set, but what about those 2 ex Special Sets?
    Two Theories:
    A. If SV7 comes with cards Stellar Miracle AND Paradise Dragona, it could be like Obsidian Flames, which released here 2 weeks after Japan got it.
    B. Those people that claimed Night Wander is releasing as part of SV6.5 are wrong, which means that Night Wander and Stellar Miracle will make up our SV7.
    I sensed that the 'ex' cards of the Loyal Three were going to be Dark-Type cards, shifting from the side of them THEY want you to see, to the side of them they don't want you to see.
    Theory: Maybe Pokémon could introduce Stellar cards in SV6.5 the same way they introduced us to VSTAR cards: release a product a month before the actual set they're introduced in comes out in order to provoke interest in that mechanic. We've seen it be done with Leafeon and Glaceon's VSTAR cards a month before Brilliant Stars came out, what's stopping Pokémon from doing it again with SV6.5?
    Charmaster:)
    Charmaster:)
    We've seen it done with many gimmicks, actually. The Snorlax GX box came out before Sun and Moon, the Magikarp and Wailord GX box came out before Team Up, the Meowth VMAX box (with it's respective V) came out before Sword and Shield, and the Mimikyu ex box came out before Scarlet and Violet.
    Charmaster:)

    While the later three boxes mentioned here were released about a month before the first sets to feature their respective gimmick, the Snorlax GX box was featured in December of the previous year (probably because the Snorlax GX already existed thanks to being distributed as a preorder bonus for the video games Sun and Moon over in Japan).

    Thanks for giving me a crash course in more evidence.
    That post surrounding the leaked and potentially fake Stellar ex cards got taken down. Still gotta learn how this spoiler system works.

    I actually replied to your post saying the cards look like a bad offspring of Amazing Rares and old Crystal type cards. And asking what SCR means?
    But as a general rule, don't post spoilers or leaks on this site.

    These likely won't be in either of SV6.5's ex Special Sets, largely because we already have enough Charizard ex Promos to last a lifetime.
    Why is Ogerpon ex getting starved of its time in the competitive spotlight?

    But Ogerpon ex looks like the Ultimate Charizard ex killer.

    PMJ
    Nah. It can ohko him sure but as soon as Ogerpon takes 1 prize Charizard just ohkos no sweat for the rest of the game. It's also harder to consistently power Ogerpon up and its attack cost means it doesn't even play nicely with the other Ogerpon. Radiant Charizard can also swing the matchup in zard's favor.
