    First ‘Pokemon GO’ TCG Cards and Products Revealed!

    Mewtwo VStar looks like it can be a genuine monster with Sr Calyrex. 270 is not teeny damage, and 120 spread to every V can be a game decider.

    ‘Dark Phantasma’ Set Featuring Hisuian Zoroark Revealed!

    If your opponent can't boss around it constantly, H.Goodra Vstar and Gardevoir could be great, taking 3hkos from Mew and Arceus while dealing a heavy 200 damage in return. Has potential to be a frustrating wall deck if you include healing items.

    Garchomp from ‘Star Birth’!

    Maybe Garchomp will eventually get a VStar to give the sinnoh champion's ace a half decent card

    Garchomp from ‘Star Birth’!

    Ah, the delicate balance. This would be a broken stall stage 1 thanks to scoop, effectively requiring a boss every turn or a pierce attack like Mew's Max Miracle, but as a stage 2 it's so lacklustre. The attack cost does not help matters, and 160 plus milling 2 of your own deck is laughable even...

    Raichu V and Lapras from ‘Star Birth’

    Shall we call Raichu+Raikou(+boltund rcl) a Raibox

    Raichu V and Lapras from ‘Star Birth’

    Raichu was tired of all the Pikachu V and decided to be good

    Pot Helmet and Fresh Water Set from ‘Star Birth’ Revealed!

    Oh and it's plain good in single prize formats like gym leader challenge if you're into that

    Pot Helmet and Fresh Water Set from ‘Star Birth’ Revealed!

    There's a few Single Prize scenarios that could have a math save with Pot Helmet, like Torterra (190) against turboless Arceus (200-30=170). It's minor, but does have fringe uses, and unlike Big Charm having it removed after the attack doesn't KO.

    New Lucario and Riolu from ‘Star Birth!’

    Sandaconda BST? It discards energy for a big attack, though with Lucario you have to attach it directly while Sandaconda just mills. The lack of support on that front leaves only Bea, which if you're discarding the top cards in the deck anyway, Sandaconda's a more direct approach of the same...

    Purification Gloves, Hunter’s Gloves from ‘VMAX Climax’

    Does this conclude the gloves saga? Any leftover types?

    Dunsparce and Skate Park from ‘Fusion Arts!’

    That Dunsparce would be fine if any usable [C] pokemon were available in standard and also inteleon vanished overnight

    Tsareena V, Falinks from ‘Fusion Arts’

    Yay, new Falinks card! Makes it an even 8 including the family game one and excluding reverse holos. Perfect for framing!

    'Evolving Skies,' August's English TCG Set!

    This looks like it'll be intimidating in the 2 weeks where Mallow/Lana is legal in the standard ladder, and cards like Raihan and Stormy Range could make it threatening even post rotation. Definitely a rogue due to needing setup every single turn, but a fun rogue at least! 240 on a 1 prize basic...

    'Eevee Evolution Tins' in September!

    Guessing Umbreon/Espeon or Leafeon/Glaceon VMax collections? Gotta put all that clutter somewhere.

    'Evolving Skies,' August's English TCG Set!

    Kyurem, despite the awkward steel energy, could be a brutal deck with the right support, hitting for 360 damage off of 6 discarded energy. Could be an amazing end game cleaner, though the steel energy makes it rough to slot into water decks (maybe add 1/2 aurora energy with it?)

    'Evolving Skies,' August's English TCG Set!

    The big flaw with vmax blockers specifically is that most Vs have attacks and if you see any of these turn 1 you just don't evolve your Vs

    'Evolving Skies,' August's English TCG Set!

    If this is all there is to the "everybody rollout" archetype, it doesn't look so hot. If you want to nullify VMaxes, then Altaria, Decidueye, or Glaceon VMax are better options, the former 2 since they block Vs as well and Glace because VMax bulk. If there's other support, then it may have a shot.
