Discussion in 'Pokémon Trading Card Game' started by Water Pokémon Master, Mar 7, 2018.
Zangoose only stands on two legs when they are ready to fight, otherwise they walk on all four.
honestly, this looks like an ok card for alolan exeggutor. the 120 damage one. besides that... yeah.
It IS weird that Zangoose wasn't in Burning Shadows with Seviper being rivals. Wonder if there is going to be one in that Hoenn set? My guess is the TCG version will either be in the single blister or the three pack blister.
If that Riptide Feraligatr were viable this would pair well with it. But it isn't, so this is also kind of bad.
actually useful for cards that need discarding to work, like Ultra Necrozma/Malamar
I genuinely thought it was the final stage of zigzagoon and linoon
How dare you insult my Maxie & The Magma deck!!!1!
I am calling it. Linoone will be on the set. Its 2 in a row that they introduce an early-game normal type mon. Well, technically 1 because the Sinnoh one doesn't have Bidoof but we have Yungoos
Maybe it will be good for putting cards in the discard, such as energy for acceleration
hmmmm you could also not pick the Pokémon and just use it to discard your deck and then lose, very interesting
That's actually not a bad idea. Since we don't have Misty's Wrath to discard loads of cards from the top of the deck, and I doubt Sage's Training will ever be re-printed either, Zangoose can be a way of getting all the water energy in the top 6 cards of the deck, into the discard pile, to power up a Riptide attack. plus its setting you up with pokemon for the next turn. it can grab you a tapu lele, if its there or a crucial Totodile piece.
If only battle compressor was in standard. that would be a straight up 4 copy card in Riptide.
At least Acro Bike is being re-printed. discard the water energy and keep the other card.
Also TV reporter can discard water energy, after you draw 3 new cards, though keep TV reporter in your binder until September, then use it. Sycamore is still the superior option for discarding everything.
That would be broken, albeit in the (mostly) luck-based manner; to potentially fill your Bench with Evolutions that skipped their Basic (possibly also Stage 1) iterations. XP If we want a simple tweak to make this card better, add the "If you go first, you can use this attack on your first turn." clause.
Then again, at this point, I'd rather they just tweak the first turn attack rules to allow attacks but ignore all damage done to your opponent's Pokémon. Probably still some problem cards because of things like damage counter placement, but I'd rather we had to ban/errata a few such cards and all the stuff with solid setup attacks could actually work T1.
Going first is already the superior option pretty much every time. Does it really need to be even better?
just a vulpix but worse needs energy and can only use top 10 cards but still cool i guess
Super Excited! Like someone else said, I really hope they re-print Double Dragon Energy...
Honestly I think genesect/ Venusaur/ sceptile could be viable
How many sceptile lines would u run in shining genesect/venasaur? I'm thinking a 2-1-2 could work since you're already running rare candies
I was looking at this the same way, pop out a bunch of Megas/stage 2s straight to the bench, then they can't be devolved
mainly picturing the possibilities of a Zangoose/Altaria/Dragonite-GX/Garchomp deck at the moment
i wouldnt mind trying this setup with Rotom toolbox
Steven will be player for sure! In a format with no N to counter it, it will be very good.
