Delcatty isnt that good, it's not broken. It is NOWHERE near as effective as Feraligatr was back in Unlimited, for the reason that we're missing Professor Oak. There arent many cards which discard things to the discard pile (TV reporter being 1) in the current modified format, so it would be much harder to pull off. Sure, Gyarados* is one, but it would be extremely hard to pull off and once that and/or Delcatty are gone, then you're in trouble and remember, you can only have 1 Gyarados* in your deck.
90HP is alright since it avoids Desert Ruins (which is going to be cycled out anyway), but it is still stopped by Battle Frontier and is vunerable to Cursed Stone. Free Retreat is good but I dont think it would be anything to be heavily worried about. It simply gets eaten by Arcanine ex and many other LM Ex's.
We'll simply have to wait to see the translations of the other Ex's in MC and the trainer variety to see how these cards can be comboed and how well they will work.
New Pokemon added to the update! That fox-like thing is...strange, it's obviously an underwater Pokemon with it's fins, but it reminds me a bit of Tails from Sonic. (So they went from stealing Digimon ideas to Sonic ones eh? Gotta admit, an unexpected move. ;p)
Seeing Alakazam again is...everyone's prayers answered.
I'm glad to see usable Pokemon* now, it means I'll definitely be happy playing them!
And to you, Godzilla, you can see what Blaziken ex does on the main page.
Personally, if you discarded as little as 15 Energy using Final Shot, you do 350 damage. Then you free retreat w/ Fluffy Berry, use Delcatty ex, and do...150 damage with Riptide, and shuffle them back into your deck. Then free retreat, and do 330 (or more than likely more than 350, seeing how you more than likely shuffled back more than 15 energy when you used riptide).
And even if you start to lose power with Gyrados*, remember: you're doing 350 damage, and that's just through my example. If you play something like 26 energy...then good gracious, you're bound to have at least 15 in your deck. I think it's good, and if it's not, then there's always Flygon-delta + Celebi* + Mewtwo-delta...
Very, very interesting.
Alakazam is back in what could the TCG's all time high (as a *!), Neo Feraligatr is back in the form of Delcaty EX, Charizard and Sceptile look like some of the most promising Delta's yet and those new Pokemon?
Tamanta is soooo cute, Perappu looks like something from Digimon and Buiezeru looks like Tails from Sonic (*nods at Porygon*).
But I must say, what a set this will be (even if Abra and Kadabra are not in Miracle Crystal).
Oh, and for all the LM Gengar players out there, don't worry about Shiftry EX's Power. When it activates you'll already be dead.
In the Miricle Crystal info page there is written that there is going to be 8 exes but with Groudon and Kyogre there are 10. Anyways.....wow this set is going to be SSSSSSSOOOOOOO AWESOME!!! Thanks for the pics

nothing else to say, but
thanks, too much to take in
thats awsome, seeing so much potential, theres like no bad exs yet, they are all useable in some way shape or form, this is like a first for a set, cept mabe UFO, and the RH seem to be interesting, anyway, THANKS ALOT TO BANGIRAS for all the translations, they are great, and of cource to WPM for geting the scans
Well, Im hoping they decide to toss in an alakazam set. In ds they had Beldum to metagross and metagross star so who knows. THe set looks awesome, and shiftry is a favorite of mine, so if thats translated right Im gonna be pushing for him in trades. THat otter pokemons pretty cool, as is the musical parrot. Now the pirates of pokemon can have parrots.
La la la... in my opinion, Clefable from the Jungle Set was the best card ever created. It's metrenome let you copy an attack without needing the energy (and all for 1 energy!!!) or needing to discard anything. I also think the best EX card ever is Feraligatr EX, from Unseen Forces. It's sore spot attack is practically guaranteed to double on the next turn, dealing 140, then 280, then 350, and so on. NO POKEMON can survive that. Tell me if I'm wrong, but don't even bother e-mailing me. That e-mail adress is bogus. Oh, by the way, see that I have no stupid quote below my posts. Can't stand 'em. I would have an avatar, but I just joined a few days ago when I was INFURIATED by the webmaster's stupid posts about hating Algebra 2. I love Algebra 2!
