    I disagree with literally everything you said. Trick Coin wouldn't help Lugia in any way whatsoever because it doesn't use coin flips. Kyurem EX is a bad idea because then you have to run two different energy types, and you wouldn't be able to accelerate to Kyurem making you need THREE TURNS to set it up, and you wouldn't get the advantage of Item lock that Trevenant gives you. Trevenant also uses the same type of energy as Alakazam and can attack for one energy with Dimension Valley in play. A Gengar deck would also not be a good idea, because having to set up a mega and a stage two just to knock out one Pokémon only to have your opponent knock out your stage two next turn is just not a good strategy. You'll get outsped and overwhelmed by other decks in the format. Trevenant is different because the Item lock slows your opponent down and Alakazam and Trevenant can both take Knockouts for you without having to retreat between them.

    And what about M Alakazam EX/Noivern? It can be accelerated usign DDE, it use [P] energy and does the same 30 damage than Kyurem EX

    I wonder if we'll get some BREAK-specific items/supporters this time around.
    Also, it bothers me a bit that Lugia BREAK, a basic BREAK, has more HP than Florges BREAK, a stage 2 BREAK (that takes a lot longer + more draw "luck" to play).

    that could work with a line of 3-3-1 noivern BREAK if your opponent sets up too quickly and you cant retaliate. no one can really say for sure though until it comes out what will work. i do agree, the artwork is beautiful. cant wait to see the fullart.

    When in Pokemon have you seen an attack that doubled the damage on Everything?

    Grandpa 'Kazam looks pimp with that beard :cool:

    The Alakazam cards look great, but I'm a bit disappointed with Lugia Break. I think the art could be executed in a better way :rolleyes:

    Lugia Break seems real strong tbh, effectively a 170hp stage 1 that hit 170 w/muscle band and can charge up with bronzong is no joke at all. Im surprised ppl dont like it. or maybe ppl are just bandwagoning from previous comments made before the translation was fixed :T

    Zygarde Ex looks like a Fighting/Ground type HP: Maybe 200 or 180
    Lugia BREAK, you will be mine!

    The Basic Lugia appears to be the same as the Dragons Exalted Bouffalant with 20 more HP and a different Weakness and Resistance. Bouffalant was used competitively, so I think Lugia will see some play.

    Anyone notice that is basically a buliker bouffalant? Same abilities text, same attack text.

    Just my opinion bro. Oops, I thought that on LugaBREAK you had to flip a coin.

    If you read on the top of the cards, to the left, you can read what stage are they. Pokémon BREAK are Pokémon BREAK, they're not Basic Pokémon.

    Devolution spray with Crobat is going to be so fun. I can also see it being really fun with Mega Alakazam to reuse the base's Ability.

    I've been wondering when they'd make a new Mandibuzz card - it's a nice bonus to get a BREAK while we're at it.
     
  19. Grumpig was clearly designed specifically to destroy Joltik. And the entire community rejoices -- or, at least, they would if he was splashable. It was a nice attempt by TPCi though.
