Switch and Hammer reprints are nice
Since cards like Catcher and Switch are in "D" block, like Japan usually have, we safely say that outside in Japan, we will safely get these in our format. Also, Japan is not worrying about losing cards like Switch when the Nov. Rotation hits.
Pls. Tell me if our lovely Ice-head Penguin is in those Starter decks.
Pls. Tell me later if SWSH1 started leaking.
Discard, draw seven is nice to have back
I love the black borders so much
I hope the Sandaconda comes in the English blisters. It's my favorite gen 8 Pokemon by far. I'll buy 10 of them just to have 10 promos.
They mostly be included in the main set.
since 120-140/202 isn't enough
The lack of a Psychic deck to give us Hatterene in the TCG immediately is a hate crime.
Also, Victini, Regirock and Tapu Koko are not in Swish's 400 + 35, so surely the TCG is not following the National Dex purge to the letter.
I only just realized this because you mentioned it, this is an outrage, we want Hatterene now please
Yep, I'm hoping this is what it implies. Dexit was already a mistake, I don't need it to translate to the one current part of the franchise I still have, lol.
So "Fine Band" according to the anonymous source in Japan, does +10 dmg to the opponent's actie. Kind like 1/2 Muscle Band, and Team Yell Grunt lets you pick an energy attached to your opponent's Poksmon and put it on the top of their deck
I assume and I hope that Starter Sets are partially limited to Galar Dex to make them more in-line with that game and we'll see the rest of the Pokemon in the set - or maybe the future sets, nobody said there's space for all 900 Pokemon in Base SwSh.
However, there is no reason for the TCG to be as unfinished as the games.
Interesting, however, that we still haven't seen V-Maxes. It appears that these cards aren't just stepping stones towards a much more interesting V-Max, they're just terrible and that's it.
Did they just forget that Abilities exist?
sandaconda has an ability where it takes 30 less damage from attacks
also when do we get galarian weezing
Cinderace could be cute actually. A welder for 160 and 170 with fine band two shots everything... neat
Poke Kid is basically the XY Promo Trevor according to Mr. Tunu
Why is there no fairy energy symbol on the 'Energy Switch' card illustration?
Wowowow, many new Trainers!
Fine Band - it's fine. It says it in the name, what else do you want?
Poke Kid - Reprint-friendly Trevor. They could have just reprinted Trevor, but I won't be mad if they super-promise to reprint Poke Kid in the future.
Rotom Bike - 1st Turn Supporter ban ahoy. I predict they'll bring us "permitted supporter effects" (aka not screwing with your opponent's cards) in the form of Items that end your turn. Or they could just reprint Judge with "Can't be used during your first turn". Suit yourselves.
Giant Charm - Might be somewhat playable. That's all.
Team Yell Grunt - Can't wait to get slammed with this on opp's turn one when they're going second, so I can NOT play a supporter and NOT get any energy advantage.
Hop - I've heard his brother is an Undefeated Champion, but that might just be a rumor. Will investigate.
The starters.....I was having higher expectations for them since this metagame is not kind to non-GXs. Especially Stage 2 non-GXs. Cinderace looks like the only viable one thanks to Welder. If they gave Rilaboom one less grass energy cost we can go....maybe... Bolthund "BEST BOY" is one I am loving!! Lightning types have so much support to at least make a fun deck out of it
