    That's a really ugly FA. Maybe the rainbow one could be pretty?

    The GX is on-par with Blade-GX, it's not OP. Can't wait until we get some sort of Fire acceleration for this guy!

    Alolan Marowak exists, and it's decent with Blaziken.

    Very lovely art. The hearts added to this card make it pop!! Personally I cannot wait to see how the Full Art Tyranitar GX, and Suicune GX turn out. This is a very exciting set for me Alolan Muk will have a field day with Shuckle, and Suicune GX shutting their abilities down but Lugia could see play with Ho-Oh GX and Reshiram GX, with Kiawe.

    You can stack Whitney and draw five cards in a turn. With Lusamine/Pal Pad you can do this multiple times per game.

    Seems kind of like an unwieldly way to draw cards.

    Draws a maximum of 7, but I can't see a point in loading your deck with 4 copies of these that are useless in early game draws. Pal Padding to throw 1 copy back into the deck to draw it later isn't exactly reliable since...there's only one copy in your whole deck to dig out, and playing Lusamine to grab her back to hand directly means a turn without any other supporter usage (and playing more supporters that have no value in the early game which leads to more bricking).

    At least she's cute though.

    That is rather useful if you need extra cards

    it seems like it could be pretty decent with compressor in expanded, you can access them with vs seeker and start drawing 7 right away

    This will be fun in expanded with compressers and vs seeker to chain 7 card draws. Will this ever be super competive probably not. It would probably work well in Expanded Zoroark since it needs to draw more carss

    This is really only good for collectors(full art is beautiful by the way). Not really going to see much competitive play I don't think.

    Oh man, Whitney. Remember that Rollout Miltank? It still makes me mad.. And when you finally beat it after 48 tries she didn't give you the badge, causing you to almost throw your gameboy against the wall again.

    You can even Ultra Ball the first Whitney (or two) one into the discard. Or ACro Bike. Or ...

    Then the next Whitneys draw 3, 5, 7 (without discarding what is in your hand.) With N gone, this seems decent. However...

    Tate & Lisa seems more practical - guaranteed 5 plus the option to switch.

    And if one of the Whitneys is prized, there is no big 7 card payoff for all that set up.

    You know, if you’re playing Rayquaza and mill these as well as Ultra Ball then you can play them for high draw right off the bat
