    Maybe for GX Ultra Shiny we might see shiny Pokemon versions of Zoroark GX, Tapu Lele GX, Buzzwole GX and Zygarde GX?

    Idk about that Elm - in theory it sounds like a more balanced Brigette, but in practice it is basically a Brigette tailored to fit Zoroark decks mostly.

    I hope the new Hoopa will be good!

    I don't think Lugia-GX is too bad. First attack isn't terrible and while 4 for 170 might not be the best when you can't use it the following turn, the gx attack is an auto-win against any deck that isn't able to set up a bench by turn 2.

    Don't really like how they keep on making 'shiny' sets this block. Keep it special please.

    I'm guessing that the shiny Pokemon that'll be featured in GX Ultra Shiny will just be the promos we got that Japan never did, like Darkrai-GX and 50% Zygarde-GX

    BUT I'm definitely hoping there's brand new ones too

    Japan's Tapu Lele GX price is pretty scary in July. I suppose its price will be slashed in half following this announcement :eek:

    Really hope Lele is a promo and not just alternate art

    If these aren't alt arts we get another year of Lele, Zoroark, and Buzzwole. Not sure how I feel about that.

    Professor Elm's Lecture is a post rotation Brigette replacement for Zoroark, which is nice. I like how they've balanced it so it can't be used to search for big boi GX/EXs.

    What made Brigette completely ridiculous was the fact that you could also grab a 180HP Basic GX pokemon along with regular basics. This new card will also force people to play 60 HP basics for Zoroark Partners, which is significantly easier to hit than 70-80 hp evolving basics.

    It might see play. Would definitely see play if the GX hit for knockout.

    I was hoping Zoroark-GX to be gone for the 2019-2020 season. Oh well...

    It's quite literally an auto win if you get a DCE + any other kind of Energy on Lugia and your opponent is forced to draw/pass with nothing on the Bench.

    That may not happen very often, but it's always something to keep in mind
