I'm really liking M Sharpedo as a softening attacker - the free retreat actually makes it seem somewhat viable to me on paper but I am really wondering what I might pair it with... Maybe Umbreon GX but I might be begging for clunk-city with multiple evolution lines.
And actually, it might even make a better clean-up attacker since people usually like to pull their damaged 'mons from the front lines to deny prizes.
Not sure if this is a proper place to put this so please remove this immediately if it's out of line. However, a Target that I stopped at yesterday broke street date and has a ton of these for sale already. I know this particular location has broken the street date before so I'm not sure if it's a company wide issue or not. What you do with this information is up to you, but I'd ask that you show TPCi and your local card shops some respect and just wait the extra week to pick them up instead if they do happen to be available early.
(In case you were wondering, no I didn't buy one myself. I picked up a single pack of SuMo instead to tide me over. Plus my leagues pre-release is at the end of April so I'm holding out for that!)
