Espeon becomes a one of in many psychic decks now.
When can Espeon not have an attack that increases damage for each energy?
P.S. TPCi, if you are reading this, could you put a Flareon in this set that is good?
In a super rogue Umbreon-GX loop deck using strafe, you could use retaliate when your pyukumuku, hoopa, or other wall is knocked out
espeon may be nice as a one of, but I’m guessing most players will know psychic decks will have it and will play accordingly.
I am sorry for your loss.
Espeon? ALL of your opponent’s Pokémon? Das pre’y goo’!
Looks like the next generation of Plasma Freeze Leafeon has appeared yet again. And that card was pretty well-played back in its day. If Buzzwole, Malamar, Rayquaza, and other high energy decks come about, Espeon will be a great tech counter.
ESPEON YES. Fantastic artwork, solid attack. Super excited about this card.
Why are people saying Umbreon is bad? Sure, it works better in decks that play Dark or Rainbow energy, but does no one remember how good that Terrakion was?
Terrakion was great because Darkrai was incredibly good, there isn't a whole lot of dark weak Pokemon, aside from DW Necrozma and possibly Banette, the relevancy of Umbreon depends on the relevancy of dark weak Pokemon.
Actually Shuckle-GX is the only playable card in the entire game. Not even energies are playable anymore.
Just the mere fact that both of them are for a single energy and can be used with the Energy Evolution Eevee makes these cards super viable, esspecially Espeon since that's more psychic weakness in the format and the conditions to do the necessary damage are easier than you think honestly, notably against Rayquaza and Buzzwole when they use Beast Ring. Even Umbreon isn't too shabby since it can hit dark weakness for efficient energy, but Zoroark does kind of the same thing so I don't know how I feel about that one in particular.
Espeon - Best non-GX atkr in Espeon-GX deck. 3-4 Geodudes
Umbreon - not that impressive. 3 Geodudes
Obv. Espeon will be better as an additional one-prize attacker in any Espeon-GX, but I think people may be forgetting that these two are coming in the same set as Ditto Prism Star. If you’re using an Evolution deck with Ditto, and you’re running Rainbow Energy, Counter Energy, or the appropriate Unit Energy, adding either Espeon or Umbreon could be a cute tech option, depending on what needs to be covered.
Umbreon may not seem that great now, but depending on what kind of other Dark-weak cards get released in the future, it’ll definitely be worth keeping in the back of your mind.
Pretty neat illustrations by Ryota Murayama, especially Umbreon.
A new story has just been posted to PokéBeach's front page:
Suicune-GX, Tyranitar-GX, Professor Elm's Lecture from SM8!
Posts you make after this point will immediately appear on the front page and vice versa. Discuss!
That Espeon looks great. Very efficient to power up and pairs pretty well with the new Shuckle-GX. Allure can even be a decent option in a bind, since we are going into a format without N.
OUR PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED!!!!! ALL HAIL THE ICE DOG!!!!!!
lol Everyone complaining earlier today about Shuckle GX existing instead of Suicune GX.
How's that for timing?
Suicune's ability... I wonder how that's gonna wind up being used
Suicune is amazing, the ability to stall loop by shuffling damaged suicunes back into your deck is super cool
