    Not to mention they don't even have to be basic, so in some decks Elm is going to be even better. I know there aren't too many viable ones, but being able to search for evolved pokemon as an option already makes it better in evolution decks, IMO.

    So Fan Club will be the go-to replacement for your Basic GX-focused decks, but I def see Elm being the staple for any evolution-based deck. You can't search out your 70hp basics, but with Buzzwole taking a hit you'll probably be able to run the ≥60hp ones with less fear of an early knockout. Plus as I and others have pointed out multiple times, it doesn't actually restrict you to basics like Brigette did, so it's more flexible in some areas.

    Honestly Sophocles would def be a great draw replacement in Banette-GX. That's really not a terrible idea either; If you're going to need supporters in the discard anyway, using Sophocles to dump 2 Whitneys adds +30, lets you draw 4, and in the event you draw into another Whitney you're already set up to draw 5.

    Finally the last full art supporter for this set, it’s not a bad art for such a bad guy, I can’t wait for lost thunder in November to get the seven full arts who are judge, kahili, Mina, morty, Whitney, elm, and faba. Only a month and a half to go

    They are getting better at those Full Arts it seems. Very good looking indeed. If they can make a Shuckle GX look cool than that says something! That Lugia Rainbow rare takes the cake though. Nice.

    This may be a little late, but does anyone know what the purple orbs are on some of the Explosive Impact cards such as Faba's regular art?

    These purple orbs appear on the artworks of cards that involve the Lost Zone, which implies that they represent a void to get there.

    Full-Art Blacephalon is quite possibly the single ugliest Full Art I have ever seen. (The rainbow looks good, though.)
