The last time they did a rotation before Worlds was back in 2012 or 2013, when the Black and White set came with new rulings and actions during the 1st turns of the game. Between SP decks, Sableye, and Machamp (take out). With the new rulings that B&W brought literally broke the format with games lasting up to 5 minutes or less. This rotation idea is a bit extreme as now Worlds will have fewer Rogue decks that can pop-up, which will most likely feature decks that drop from the August set as decks will have fewer chances/time to counter these decks. I am skeptical about which of these trainers will be reprinted between now and Worlds, as I am worried about format imbalances occurring without certain cards. > Guzma and DCE are the biggest 2 losses as they not only kept balance in the format, but also allowed smaller rogue decks to keep bigger Gx decks on their toes. Guzma prevented decks from being setup fodder and targeted down opposing traps that would otherwise be troublesome. Triple Boost Energy is a nice card, but it will not replace the flexibility of DCE, period. > Other Cards that I will miss are Professor Kukui and Pokemon that took 2 years to find a noteworthy deck for worlds like Vileplume and many others. I will miss Marshadow Gx was a fun card to exploit, which I will take to expanded due to how fun Marshadow Box is, but outside these cards I have no problem seeing a format change even-though it will be Tag Teams and counter decks. What I will miss about this block of cards are all of the tricks that came out, whether it is to confuse the opponent and getting the opponent to think as well as having fun making big decks tremble. I however look forward to new decks, strategies, and all the fun that comes with heading back to the drawing board. Rogue Decks for life!
