The translation of ability is not right.
That is "When you play Dedenne-GX from your hand to your Bench during your turn you may discard your hand and draw 6 cards. You may only use 1 Dede Change Ability per turn"
Yeah, the beginning of Sun/Moon was maybe a bit too slow drawpower wise. But between this, Acro Bike, Custom Catcher and Zebstrika... They've overcompensated. Realistically, the "problem" was more than solved with Zoroark GX. (Who itself was probably too good at what it does.)
At least this is once per turn, unlike Shaymin. But it's also a more powerful effect (it just straight thins your deck by 6 cards, not up to 6 like Shaymin, there's a reason Sycamore's a stronger card than Lillie, and it's not the 1 extra card), so that's kind of a moot point. The only thing keeping this in check is the number of decks these days that rely on multiple bench-sitters and thus don't have a ton of free bench space. Watch them "fix" that by re-releasing Sky Field or making an Item that lets you discard one of your benched Pokemon or something. I wish they'd plan the path of powercreep a little better. It's clear they tend to react to problems more often than predicting them.
Like the card. Not as concerned about the weakness to fighting as some since A) buzz's play has slowed considerably and by the time it's released (Marchish) Buzz will only be in format for around 5 months.
Everyone saying buzz weakness sucks forgets the fact that buzz isn't seeing much play and if you say 160 is easy to get just look at shaymin with its 110 HP. The only real downside is it can only be used once per turn
So you’re telling me that Zebstrika is better? Granted, 160 HP, fighting weakness, and no effective attacks does hurt a bunch, and combine that with the fact that we already have Abilities like Instruct, Smooth Over, Trade, and Sprint in the format, this doesn’t have much going for it.
THAT BEING SAID, everyone went crazy over the previous Shaymin EX even after Octillery was released. I still like the card A LOT, and if you play Shrine and Acerola in your deck already, this card fits right in. An extra consistency boost never hurts. Having that boost as a liability does, but alas, here we are.
