    Well... the obvious play is garbodor/alolan muk/shrine of punishment. This will likely receive a significant amount of play.

    I'm thinking the same thing. Even in expanded it would be broken. Put Team Rocket's Handiwork into the mix and spice things up a little with Seismitoad EX.

    That alolan grimer would work well in a Salazzle Ariados deck. Special Condition Triple Whammy is what id call it.

    Lol, the face on that Grimer looks so ominous yet derpy all at once. I love it! The cards look fun to play, too.

    in expanded, so many options, you can use mew to copy its chemical breath for type coverage, and adding in a marshadow should give you broader type coverage. mew to deal with pesky buzzwole decks, and marshadow for those zoroarks, combined with hypnotoxic or niheligo. alolan muk can be useful in a milling deck. also to increase damage, add in sevipers and virbank city for maximum poison effect.
    Possibly be used in a latios hybrid deck, but how to conted with the cards though.

    Both Grimer and Muk are good, though for different reasons.

    The Alolan Muk is definitely powerful alongside Garbodor, especially since it now gives Garb an option to pressure players that try to play around Trashalanche. If the opponent tries to avoid playing item cards, then Muk's ability becomes more effective.

    Alolan Grimer's attack is surprisingly strong for that energy cost and being on an evolving basic. I would argue it is better than the main attack on Alolan Muk-GX. Other comments have gone into the math, and the damage along with special conditions do stack up rather quickly.

    Don't alolan forms have free attacks?

    Only some of them do. Free attack costs have been seen on cards in the past, but they’re exclusive to certain Alolan form Pokémon in the SM era.

    • Alolan Grimer/Muk - both of them are so redonk!! Muk helps Garb and Grimer is great in some ways. Don't use Nihilego if you don't want to Poison yourself, if you do, run 2 Switch. 4/4
