    It being a rapid strike card will make it searchable with octillery though. Might be a good supporter to play in small quanitity if you run octillery.

    This is pokemon. If you have a bad hand it's because you have a hand full of dead cards, not because you don't have a hand. It is too easy to draw cards in general to make Korinna worth it even with Octillery

    Actually, that could be possible. I just think it won’t see a lot of play since we have better draw power now thanks to Dedenne, Magnolia, etc., but who knows? Maybe the Strike cards will change the meta a little bit.

    What about the Full Art Ultra Rare V’s? What about the Rainbow Rares? Where have they gone?

    Oh. Sorry. Should’ve read that. I just thought they said they’d reveal ‘em all by Tuesday.

    Why use this Korrina when you can Crobat and then play another supporter...? It's literally the same effect.

    Good point, but to be fair, not everyone wants to spend $15 a piece for a card that’s most likely going to give the opponent two or three extra prize cards anyways. A lot of people don’t mind, but I prefer not to spend a lot on my decks if possible. It IS one of the best cards in the format, but people still have personal preferences and budgets.

    I can't just look at these stunning (as always) FAs and not say something! Phoebe's TCG debut looks to be one riddled with Waifu Taxes aplenty, and I really don't mind, because the colors and lighting of Phoebe's FA are just delightful! I assume Phoebe is Kagemaru Himeno's doing, so that's another score for the mistress of Pokemon TCG art!

    Let's not count out our favorite Roller Girl, either! I love how dynamic Korrina's new FA is; She's clearly skating on water, the training ground for Rapid Strikers, but it almost seems we've caught her in the middle of her slipping and falling (much like her official art)! The trend of SWSH FA Supporters depicting them in actual locales rather than flashy backgrounds really lends itself well to FAs like Korrina's! Superb art all around!

    I think Dedenne rotates out this summer? We may need more draw support to fill the gaps.

    I mean, we’ve got Kricketune V coming in. Basically a bigger and better Oranguru.

    I see Korrina as a 1-of easily. Searchability is no joke, and after you get sized down by Reset Stamp or Marnie you can recover even if your hand is less than stellar. People didn't use Bianca or Lillie as much because 1. There were far better supporters to use and 2. Better cards to search. Octillery is already giving you value by searching energy and control tools, may as well add an extra consistency one to your deck.

    Alolan Ninetales
    90 HP (W) Type
    Poké-Body: Nine Allures
    Once during your turn (before you attack), you may discard 2 (W) Energy cards from your hand. If you do, switch 1 of your opponent’s Benched Pokémon with his or her active Pokémon.
    Attack 1: (C)(C)(C) Color Coordination 50+
    If this Pokémon has any basic Energy attached to it that are the same type as the Defending Pokémon, this attack does 40 more damage.
    Okay, so maybe this isn’t the most original card in the set, combining the effects of two separate Kantonian Ninetales, but I think it has the potential to be an interesting card. It’s Poké-Body (similar to Ninetales’ ability from Team Up) makes it an ideal support Pokémon for Water decks, and it’s Color Coordination (copying the attack of the same name known by Ninetales from Legendary Treasures) has the potential to inspire some unusual combos. Say, that gives me a idea for Eevee...

    Sorry, wrong thread.
     
  17. I think these cards are ok

    not meta breaking, but not unplayable either

    korrina will be played in a 2-of in decks with octillery to prevent against reset stamp

    the other one will be played if that funny stall deck starts to make waves on the format
     
  18. Water Pokémon Master I like Pokemon more than you. :D

    Really love the Tyranitar and Empoleon, hope we keep getting stuff that great.

    Could that person have found a worse angle for the Octillery picture? :p
