    Not sure how the wording of that ability works. Would we be able to bench a basic, then put the respective stage 2 right on it all in the same turn?

    Heracross will fit nicely in any Venusaur deck.

    When will Gardenia's Ace in the hole ever be printed? :D

    Uh...would Meganium’s ability work the turn you play the basic Pokemon?? That seems...good.

    Maganium- Free rare candy is nice, but wait, it doesn’t say anything about not evolving the turn the basic was put down. So basically it’s sort of like Forest of Giant Plants but you don’t need the stage 1!? Or the old way rare candy worked? And it works on any type of Pokémon. This could be nuts with Acerola, super scoop up, etc.

    Meganium is neat? I'm not sure how to react to it like on one hand it's ability is kinda busted, but on the other hand it's a stage 2 itself. Maybe it could work in like Decidueye or something?

    These new ideas are really laughable - so you run a crappy stage 2 to evolve your other stage 2 line "more quickly" - dude just play Rare Candy. Like wtf is wrong with TPCi lately.

    Heracross sure is a nice addition to Sceptile decks that also run Lurantis. Meganium has awesome art and a good ability. However since he is a stage 2 Pokémon himself he could be clunky to use.

    Ok, hold on, let’s extrapolate here:
    Evolving a Pokémon (unless it says you can skip this clause) can only be done on the second or later turns a Pokémon was in play to that player. That’s the rule. Paraphrased, of course. We can’t be loose constructionists before we know anything.
    Eevee’s Ability (you know which one) says that you put this card on this Pokémon to evolve it. That’s using an ability.
    Second ability? Says Evolve?
    Yep, it would probably work on the first turn.
    All thanks to the scientific method!
    WEEEEEEEEEEE-

    And it’s not clunky at all. If you play a Stage 2 deck, you play Rare Candy. Just Rare Candy into a Meganium. Then Early Ripening Herb into everything else.
    Bam. It’s good.

    Oh, Heracross?
    DISLIKE

    Still way too clunky to ever be viable, but just imagining getting meganium set up, then boom: sceptile + jungle totem venusaur + super boost energy.....would be a ton of fun.

    The art on the Meganium is definitely better than the BreakPoint art, and the ability at least offers assistance in getting other Stage 2's set up. Too soon to say if it'd be worth the trouble of having two stage 2 lines in the one deck. I daresay its success is going to depend on the Chikorita and Bayleef that go with it (I hope at least they've got good art though).

    The Heracross is nice, I guess.

    lol no it's not good

    also, Heracross is clearly the superior card here

    Well, you’re entitled to your opinion, I suppose.
    I still like it.

    How exactly would you use the ability on the first turn? Youd still need to wait to evolve into it? Also, doesnt the heracross work together with meganium? Say use meganium and deciueye with heracross

    • Meganium - I admit that this ability is good giving that it is a free rare candy. The problem is Meganium is a Stage 2. You'll have a bad time to get this out to achieve this ability. 3-4 Geodudes
    • Heracross - Sceptile has a other non-GX atkr since the deck runs few energy. 3 Geodudes

    Meganium card no.5 and Heracross card no.14...hmm I'd say chances look pretty good for Sunkern/Sunflora's triumphant return to the TCG, but they could still potentially miss out.

    “Strength of 100.” Doesn’t do 100 damage. :confused:
