So far i've found a 1 Candice Trainer card but it only checks the top 7 cards and take as many of pokemons and energies then shuffle the rest. It seems stronger but i think it will get rotated before does. She has the icon F like but seems less popular than Irida.

Melony is weak since it helps V cards by digging in the discarded pile for energy and Nessa has already been rotated out other than playing at home casually.
