Aaaaand a new drampa for my drampa collection yay!
Mega Lopunny yaaaas
HIPPIE DRAGON POGCHAMP
Also the Cynthia & Caitlyn is completely out of left field, can't wait to see what it does
Volcarona GX looks edgy as heck
that whistle seems tricky..
Tag Team trainer art is sooooo lazy. Like, "copy-paste in MS-Paint" lazy.
That Lunala is equal parts the most beautiful and sinister card art I’ve ever seen.
Volcarona?! Nice! One of the best Gen 5's finally got something good! Mega Lopunny is cool too (even though lowkey, more excited for the Puff over Lopunny itself). I'm excited to see the tag team trainer full arts though. Those could end up being good.
EDIT: Lopunny+Puff could be good in Archie's Blastoise possibly?? Interested to see where this card goes.
but the full arts are gonna be great owo
First Colorless card in the set: 73
Looking almost certain that the Jangmo-o line is gonna be in this set, with two Jangmo-o cards because it's a three-stage evolution line as per tradition in the main SM sets. The only other Dragon Pokemon after Drampa in the National Dex are Guzzlord and Naganadel.
Also a cool thing to note-
With this, the Igglybuff Tag Team and the Wigglytuff GX, we now have the entire Puff line available in GX form. I might be biased since I main Puff in Melee (I know, sue me) and I love the Pokemon, but that's pretty cool if you ask me.
Another observation: Armaldo's presence mean it's extremely likely we'll get Lileep and Cradily for the first time since Plasma Blast. They've yet to have just one fossil line in a set in Gen 7.
Ultra Prism: Cranidos and Shieldon
Forbidden Light: Amaura and Tyrunt
Team Up: Aerodactyl, Kabuto and Omanyte
Unified Minds: Archen and Tirtouga
Cosmic Eclipse: Anorith (so far)
Volcarona's ability may be: discard a fire energy from your hand, place 2 damage counters on one of your opponent's pokemon
Attack: Return 2 fire energy from this pokemon to your hand
If you reduce a Pokémon’s HP below 0 with Island Tour License, it would knock them out, right?
9 Tag Team GXs in COE
Venusaur & Snivy
Charizard & Braixen
Blastoise & Piplup
Solgaleo & Lunala
Reshiram & Zekrom
Arceus & Dialga & Palkia
Togepi & Cleffa & Igglybuff
Mega Lopunny & Jigglypuff
Dusknoir & Trevenant??
Trivia on why Cynthia & Caitlin
Back on the BW anime aka the Worst Pokemon Series in the anime, there was a competition in Unova where Ash and Friends were competing. In that arc, we see the return of Dawn and her Piplup and the debut of Cameron who smacks Ash in the Unova League. One of the battles in the tournament was Cynthia vs Caitlin. And as a Sidenote, Cynthia and Caitlin were from Sinnoh
that volcarona is the coolest looking card I have seen...perhaps ever. Amazing. One of my favourite pokemon finally done justice~
if it is playable, it will just be the absolute icing on the cake.
That Alolan Ninetales promo omo. I need it. I wish Armaldo was better, but here's hoping for Cradily (if it comes)!
Those tag team trainers arts are so lazy, in the name of God, WHY.
I could have used them in my decks but I won't bother because I will have to see this Photoshop abomination -no, not even that, Paint abomination- every time I play them.
I pray the playable ones get a cool FA version. They are the ugliest cards I have ever seen.
The ninth Tag Team for Cosmic Eclipse should be Naganadel & Guzzlord. My current list is assuming that the Carracosta-GX gym promo will be in our set as well, so that would leave two unknown regular GXs
Red and Blue is kinda busted tbh. Evosoda plus energy acceleration.
Volcarona GX - The ability nice. Softening the opponent for a KO. The atks are unimpressive except the fact that the main atk KOs Dedenne and most non-GXs. 4 Geodudes
Lunala - the ability doesn't include the GX. Solgaleo and Solgaleo-GX are different names. If we have a good Solgaleo, Lunala's ability will help. Plus, its a stage 2 which makes it a bit awkward. 3-4 Geodudes
Armaldo - In order to do more dmg, we need to rely on Pokemon Reasearch Lab. Not good. If we got 4 Unidentified Fossils in the discard, that's 220. KOs most GXs despite some that hits for weakness. Plus Diancie*, 240 KOs Pikarom ignoring the weakness thingy. Plus, if you're behind on prizes and you have basic F, 280 KO Tag Teams ignoring again, weakness. The problem is.. its reliance to Pokemon Research Lab which ends most of your turns plus the loss of Timer Ball, plus the fact that its a Stage 2 in nature lets it down. Plus, again the fact of the DCE loss. Ok, I'll stop. 2-3 Geodudes
Mawile - Meh. We got something better. 2 Geodudes
Drampa - MEEEEEEEHHHH!!! 1-2 Geodudes
Alolan Ninetales - you don't do too much damage. Like Rotom, you have to play more tools. Hence, this and Rotom make a good pair. We don't have CB tho. 3 Geodudes
Mega Lopunny & Jigglypuff TTGX - Welder is broken once more. Their atk costs is payable by Welder. Snipe 200 for 5 as its GX atk, I'm fine. 4 Geodudes
Tag Whistle - Better Pokemon Search and Tag Team cards. 4 Geodudes
Island Tour License - used for Prize Denials? 3 Geodudes. This thing is very questionable.
Cynthia & Caitlin - Built-in VS Seeker with some bunch of draw power. Nice! 5 Geodudes.
Red & Blue - After the Worlds, I don't see any GXs being playable and good. Dragonite and Magcargo r being used as discard fodder for MooMoo. If we ever get that, we got Red & Blue. 4 Geodudes
I'll update my set list soon. Just wait.
