    Gapejaw Bog, Pawniard, and Bisharp from ‘Time Gazer’!

    Gapejaw Bog sounds like a good fit for Samurott VSTAR, especially in the early game without any other damage spreaders set up yet.

    Beedrill V, Hisuian Electrode Line from ‘Space Juggler’!

    Has there ever been a card with more than one zero energy cost move before?

    ‘Lost Abyss’ TCG Trademark Filed!

    I guess there will be a Giratina VSTAR that can send two cards to the Shadow Realm Lost Zone with its VSTAR power.

    Dunsparce and Skate Park from ‘Fusion Arts!’

    Skate Park doesn't synergize as well with Frosmoth as it does with the other Rain Dancers. As you are limited to accelerating energies to your bench, you can't charge up a fresh attacker with the energy from the old active pokémon. You don't get the energy until you've retreated the old active...

    ‘Fusion Arts’ Officially Revealed!

    Yeah, the Unova triplets are only good while setting up, and Elesa becomes bad quickly after using it the first time. Getting back Power Tablets with Smeargle could be nice, but if you do, that's offering an easy one prize to the opponent.

    ‘Fusion Arts’ Officially Revealed!

    I feel Fusion System Genesect V and Power Tablet are the two cards that can make Fusion Box stand out as a strong archetype. Though I wonder if deck builders will settle on Mew VMAX as the main attacker.

    25th Anniversary Pikachu Cards Revealed, Including Surfing Pikachu V, Birthday Pikachu, Pikachu V-UNION!

    It's a cornucopia of Pikachu! The VMAXs and the V-UNION are such fun cards. The full art based on base set Pikachu reminds me of those extended card art fan works, makes me wish that there were more full arts made in that vein.

    Leon / Nessa / Bea / Raihan Trainer Collections With Autographed Promos!

    Not 100% sure about Bea, but Nessa wore that outfit in the Twilight Wings series.

    Leon / Nessa / Bea / Raihan Trainer Collections With Autographed Promos!

    These promos are adorable! Though the artwork for Raihan feels a bit off IMO, that bored frown seems out of character for him.

    ALL “Sky Stream” and “Towering Perfection” Secret Rares!

    Comments are back! Yay! I hope that Rayquaza VMAX special art is depicting it floating above the Sky Pillar, making the huge tower look like a bird perch. I am also looking forward to the new Copycat full art, the full art from Celestial Storm was lovely.

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

    Galarian Zapdos seems to be the worst of the future prerelease promos for Evolving Skies, unless Galarian Articuno has a worse attack. Galarian Moltres is a nice single prize late game attacker for Darkness decks, while Flaaffy is almost guaranteed to be a staple in Electric decks until it...

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

    Yeah, Blissey should have at least been 30x, especially with the higher energy cost. Then it could have been Blissey as a default attacker, and Jigglypuff, Marill and Sandshrew to hit for weakness if needed.

    New 'V-UNION' Trademark Filed for the Pokemon TCG!

    If V-Unions will appear in regular sets, I suspect they will take up the reverse holo slot, much like BREAKs or Prism Stars before them.

    'Shocking Volt Tackle,' Japan's September Set!

    Are there any Eevee in the format that has any attacks that could be interesting to use with Memory Capsule?

    'Eruption Walker' Japan's Mini-Set for April!

    Makes me wonder if a nerfed Battle Compressor that only discards Pokémon could be printed in the future. That would allow Mad Party decks to run effiecently without it becoming an universal deck optimization staple like Battle Compressor was.

    'Eruption Walker' Japan's Mini-Set for April!

    Heat Fire Energy is quite a surprise. If I would have guessed the effect of the new special fire energy, "increasing maximum HP" would not have been it. I rather like these new VMAXes compared to previous ones we've had so far. Nothing extraordinary about them per se, but I personally like the...

    'World Down' and 'Legendary Heartbeat,' Japan's Summer Sets Introducing Amazing Rares!

    To be fair, Dragon didn't have GX starter deck either, so I wouldn't say it is a sign on its own that Dragon has been removed. Dragon-type don't really fit the structure of the Starter decks since they are intentionally simple and mono-typed, unlike Dragon's unorthodox energy requirements.

    'VMAX Rising,' Japan's February Set!

    Galarian Corsola is missing its retreat cost.

    'VMAX Rising,' Japan's February Set!

    Looks like Pokémon TCG revealed a new Slosher weapon for Splatoon. Jokes aside, Full Bucket is pretty much tailor-made for Frosmoth. Just keep pouring buckets of Water energy on your pokémon and douse your opponent.
