Prereleases were today, and I noticed Lanturn was mistranslated. It's MUCH better than what it says here.

The attack doesn't make you choose for them to draw; it lets you choose whether to force them to shuffle their deck. So it doesn't NEED any additional support like Aipom.

Look at their deck with your ability. Don't like what you see? Attack and force them to shuffle.

I am sorry, but the comments here are pretty preposterous.

Firstly, if you are a collector that's collecting cards, it helps if these cards are... collectible? I have got an odd pack of Breakpoint and opened a secret rare Gyarados EX. Huzzah! Too bad it's only about 7 dollars, because it's the only secret rare in the entire set.
Meanwhile, the Gyarados GX from Crimson Invasion is over 20 dollars. Hell, most of the secret rares from that set are above 7 euro at this point. These cards are meant to be collectibles, not playable pieces. I hate when playable cards are unreasonably expensive, but collectibles are MEANT to be rare. Otherwise, they wouldn't be collectibles at all. It also helps the game economy, siphoning costs away from the actually playable cards.

And secondly, if you are buying booster boxes to build a Standard-legal deck - what are you doing? No TCG was ever designed to operate this way and you cannot blame the designers for not providing on that front. It's like blaming the casino for having bad odds - you are never mean to "win" a gamble. Boosters are for event prizes and mass openers.
It really helps if you'll wake up now and purchase the singles you need for the deck you want, instead of spending hundreds of dollars to get a playset of $10 rares.

Really depends on how you collect. If you collect whole sets, excessive numbers of SR cards is more frustrating than fun. Collecting for value or investment is a whole different (long) ball game. Maybe I'm not picking up what you're putting down.

Any predictions what the theme decks will contain :) ?
There have been leaks stating that the Groudon deck will contain the Seismitoad line. This will presumably mean that the deck could focus around the dragon majesty Trapinch or cosmic eclipse Palpitoad to do damage to your own bench and then swing for higher numbers with a Terrakion or Seismitoad itself.
As for Kyogre, it will most likely contain a Phione (they were released together in Japan) and an Empoleon line (this was paired with Phione at pre-release tournaments). We could see the Sawsbuck line in either one of the decks, alongside Kricketune or the Emboar line as they were all prominent in the pre-release. It is possible that the Groudon deck will be a combo of fire and ground pokemon, whereas Kyogre will be water/grass.

The fact that we'll have 3 Dragon TAG TEAM in this expansion kinda scare me.It's too much TAG TEAM for a single type.
