What did you say about my nose?

Why is Liepard absolute crap? Liepard's design is slick as hell. Why would you advocate for a legendary to get a V, when those Pokemon that barely ever get recognised finally get a chance to shine? I love Kyurem, but when was the last time Lipard got anything? The poor cat hasn't had any recognition ever. Darkness Ablaze gave it LIMBER as an ability of all things, which was almost completely useless. This V is a nod that the Pokemon EXISTS and is now semi-playable. They can't do everything at once. In what world is this situation bad?
Because it isn't to his standards of what is good. And anything that isn't exactly what he thinks is good is abhorrent. There's no being satisfied if you're zzzeraora.

Look, I'm not trying to be rude to you. I don't want to be. If you actually cared to think about what I'm saying you'd actually see I have reasons for not constantly prasing this game. I will continue to do what I do because nobody else cares to. Sorry.
Hypocrisy atop of hypocrisy. "I'm not trying to be rude. I don't want to be." And yet you spit venom towards anyone who even slightly points out the flaws in your arguments or tries to offer a differing opinion. But no, you're always right, we should always care about what you say despite giving us no reason to, because you're a complete jerk to literally anyone who slightly disagrees with you, right? If you don't want to be rude, then... Maybe try to stop being rude to people? Maybe explain your points rationally???

Like... What kind of weird standards even are there? Kanto Pokémon are bad. Popular Pokémon getting printed is bad. Pokémon who have been printed before are bad, even if it's been years since they were printed (Like when Zeraora V came out and you complained that they "just" printed Zeraora GX, despite that coming out in 2018. Which is also the last time a Kyurem form got an Ultra Rare, mind you). And then they print an unpopular Pokémon as an Ultra Rare, which is what so many people on Pokebeach and the Pokémon community want, but because it's not one of the Pokémon YOU think is deserving of one, then it's bad? Is anything ever good to you? Are you ever happy??? Gen 5 is my favorite, and I haven't seen some of my favorite Gen 5 Pokémon as Ultra Rares yet, but I'm not here yelling blind outrage anytime some Pokémon who isn't the exact tiny handful of something I want gets printed.

Like, there's reasons to be unhappy with the TCG. But what kind of way is it to enjoy this hobby by constantly being pissed off at everything? You're exhausting yourself and everyone around you. It's tiring watching this constant whining and moaning. If you want to create conversation and have people listen to your displeasures with the TCG, maybe just try being a bit less insufferable about it. You mentioned "nobody's going to listen to you unless you're rude," but you know what? When you're rude to everyone, everyone's going to be busy pointing out how rude you are instead of listening to your actual points.

Don't let good be the enemy of perfect, dude. You seem to be that exact kind of person who can't ever seem to acknowledge a step in the right direction.

Well, this world. What if we don't ever get one or two Galarian forms as Vs because losers like Liepard got one instead? You can't tell me you wouldn't see the problem with that. You'd have to be clinically insane
Case in point. There's plenty more spots for Pokémon to get V's. Refer to that post I made earlier, telling you why we actually have a good chance to get the Galarian forms/evolutions and VMAXs completed. God forbid they print other Pokémon every once in a while. God forbid we print a Pokémon who hasn't been given an Ultra Rare before just because one person doesn't like it. Suck it up, dude.

Finally!!! A chase Liepard card! After all the special treatment TPCi was giving Bisharp (did anyone seriously ask for a shiny Bisharp in Steam Siege???) we got a *good* Gen V Pokémon for once.

Besides, There is literally better choices for Dark type or even 2-stage evolution lines in Gen 5 to be Vs. Like I said, Bisharp has NEVER gotten any good card. Actually he's literally more worthy of getting a V considering not only are his cards always crap, but said cards never deserve to be. Dude literally has 125 attack. Like....that's wonderful. That's genuinely better than most Vs have. Liepard has 88 attack. So instead of getting a Darkness Bisharp V that could do a lot of damage, we get a liepard that does 110 damage and has a genuinely useless ability.
How can I not have an issue with that?
The comments have established that the ability is playable in Eternatus. I understand you prefer Bisharp to Liepard, I do too. But the games are separate to the cards. Yes Bisharp is OP in the games. But Liepard isn't. So giving the cat the spotlight for once is good. Liepard can outperform Bisharp in the cards for once. A Liepard fan in the crowd will finally be happy. Bisharp will have his time as an ultra rare. Wait it out if you can. I also want an alt art Kecleon VMAX. That isn't happening anytime soon, despite Kecleon being as good a candidate as Bisharp. You can't have everything immediately, or the drive to get what you don't have will vanish.

You three; get in my Team Rocket collection!


Ok, this comment maybe made sense when it was in a thread about Koffings and Weezings...

Liepard V is such a roller coaster of a card, it's hilarious. My initial reaction was why Liepard V if we have Tool Scrapper, but then I realized a searchable Tool Scrapper has its use cases. If it wasn't a V Pokemon I would have been more excited, but I guess they don't want any Scoop-up Net shenanigans happening.

This Tauros is a Single Strike card. Ramp it up twice with SSE and Houndoom and it hits for 140, if I got the math right. One-shots the anti-V Decidueye. Neat.

Seeing comments talking about the potential or lack thereof for new cards: Ah, yeah. I can see that.

Seeing the other comments lately:

The ignore button improves your quality of life tremendously. Block the troll and move on rather than feeding him.

As for these cards, they're both neat. Liepard's cool but outside of Eternatus there really isn't decks that want to give up a bench space for it yet, and come rotation there isn't that many great tools. Tauros seems like it has potential, either just paired with stuff like Houndoom and Abomasnow or Donphan VIV to put damage counters on it. It's nice when a single-prizer actually has some effort put into it, and I'm looking forward to experimenting with it. The new Cemetery helps it out, as well.

Does it actually work as to extinguish him from existence as far as I'm concerned? Is it like on Facebook? Will it be like he doesn't exist? I thought it would only like, not show notifications from new comments on threads if it was him making the comment or something to that effect.

EDIT: omg, he's gone, reduced to atoms! Thank you. My goodness, what are you other people still doing engaging with this person? I would've done this sooner if I knew it was this simple to just erase all that toxicity in a couple of clicks! Back to talking about cards and engaging in productive and amazing conversations with amazing community members!

I'll totally build a fun Tauros rogue deck when CR releases, could be a baller budget deck since Houndoom, all the necessary energy, Spikemuth, Cape, Bruno, Mustard, and probably Karen are are all rotation-safe uncommons. Jury's still out on Abomasnow, RS Falinks was a rare for some reason so who knows. Hopefully there's more interesting items and supporters for Single Strike in this set, it's quite unbalanced in favour of Rapid currently.

I literally made an account just to share my intense happiness that one of my favorite pokemon is finally getting an ultra rare I am so unbelievably happy

I could see the Tauros becoming a tech card for the Urshifu SS deck or just any SS deck in general for those anti-v decks out there, as well as being a spiritomb 2.0 deck.

Maybe a one of in eternatus?
Probably nothing more though. Unless the twin Caly sets reveal any absolutely nutty tools, Eternatus will likely be this card's only home. Tool scrapper is more efficient, despite being less searchable.

Liepard is cool. Eternatus likely has the bench space for it, and it can discard stuff like Metal Googles - in the 3 months it has remaining in format it releases -, Cape of Toughness and other problematic tools. The attack is cool too, allowing for constant re-use and even softening up a target for next turn. Can't say how viable it's gonna be in the SWSH-on format, tho. We likely need to know which tools we are getting in Chilling Reign and the September set.

Tauros always has that "rage" gimmick going on with its cards, and as far as Tauros versions go, this is possibly one of the best. Maxes out at 260 by itself, Houndoom and Single Strike Energy give it +20 damage for each copy, Powerful Colorless gives it yet another extra +20, and we have Twin Energy when it can't afford the extra attachment - though I would probably go 4-4 in a Powerful Colorless/Single Strike count. Add Cape of Toughness and it maxes out at 340 + 40 = 380. Be careful with Zigzagoon tho. Houndoom and Spikemuth place 40 damage per turn. Too bad Jynx rotates, otherwise the self-spread would be far more viable.
On the Spikemuth part, you most likely run Old Cemetery as a Stadium since its most easier than Spikemuth because you have to switch active back and forth to place the desirable dmg on Tauros and it keeps getting impractical.

Tauros could be very good. Has access to single strike shenanigans, powerful energy, spiritomb ingredients (spikemuth switching etc), Cape etc. Can't wait to try.

I’m really liking this Taurus. Donphan + Galarian Runerigus + Taurus sounds pretty busted to me!

You know what? Y'all can suck my dong. I'm allowed to want what I want. I don't need to justify that to strangers.

It's hard to compare ptcg and mtg from a rarity standpoint since boosters for mtg have been (allegedly) balanced for limited play, and pokemon has no such format, instead opting for a kind of stage-based rarity model. this makes the playables uncommon or higher except when they are basics of an evo line in the deck. That article from MaRo is still nonsense though, that guy is so far up his own butt he can count his teeth.

Oh, whoops, I replied to the wrong person. How is this toad not infracted or banned by now?
