Man I'm getting tired of people saying we have no Stage 2 support when Rare Candy is still in rotation, and we arguably have even more reasons to run it with Trashalanche out of the format.

Is it just me, or does a non OHKO or game disrupting GX attack pretty much seem worthless at this point? I mean, unless it completely resets play or throws a huge curve ball into the match, why even play it?

Flygon seems good.
It has Red and Blue to accelerate and diancie and dojo to do extra damage.
I believe dojo works before you discard it in the same way you can lost zone the beast energy on blace and still get the +30. Judges?
It's like a non-tag team GX that hits tag team #s and has tag team HP.
Prize trades will be good.
You will have to get through 3 270+ hp monsters.

If we can find a good way too power Flygon up it's really good (aside from being a stage 2). I still can't believe we're getting a Flygon GX though like wow.
isnt this just a creative way to say 'flygon gx is a weak card because it's a stage 2 with a high attack cost'

Yes, any effect that is on the Pokémon when the attack begins will carry on. The stadium is actually discarded at the end of the attack phase well after the stadium's effect worked.

Rare Candy only goes so far, especially with Ultra Ball out of rotation at the moment. You still need the basic in play to survive a turn, and a specific Pokemon and the specific item of Rare Candy, while Basic decks only need the basics. Also I would argue that Guzma out of the formation is more relevant for running stage 2's than Trashalanche.

It’s not that we don’t have any stage 2 support, it’s that, with almost no Pokémon search options, and things like cherish ball, stage 2s can’t keep up.

Hm.

I'd say "based off Karate Belt's text" but that only says it costs one less Fighting energy.

That's... gonna be a tricky one to figure out, for sure.

Sun Power > Solar Power (an ability that the Sunkern line and some other Pokemon get in the games) on Sunflora.
