Several more “Character Rares” and “Character Super Rares” have been revealed from VMAX Climax! Except for Alcremie, they are all reprints of existing cards.
The human characters include Fisher, Morty, Cafe Master, Janine, Sina, May, Hop, and Pokemon Center Lady.

Now that's interesting! I'm loving the artwork on Oranguru, Blissey V, and Dusknoir.

One thing I really hope to see is that the currently-revealed CSR Pokemon V/VMAX get their respective Basics/Evolutions, it's just weird to see a CSR Pikachu VMAX/Blaziken V without a CSR Pikachu V/Blaziken VMAX.

Firstly, How many versions of SSH Oranguru do we ever get, same as Zamazenta? Also, are expecting Zacian with Gloria?

Alcremie - Well, someone said that we need an ability that doesn't end your turn when you play Cafe Master, the problem is... it's on a Stage 1 and no ways to cheat Stage 1s into play first turn, most importantly, first turn going second, because Cafe Master sucks on the new Supporter ruling. Also, 130 is a bad damage nowadays, not even KO an Urshifu VMAX for 2 energy, wherein RS Urshifu can KO you anyways? 3 Geodudes

If this Pokemon is your Active Pokemon to If this Pokemon is in your Active Spot.

Sorry but I ain't offend translators here but a little change or adaptation or whatever to the current wordings on Sword & Shield cards.

Dusknoir looks great but Morty looks lame. He's doing nothing at all. Looks like an amateur drew it, which obviously isn't the case, but disappointing compared to the others. He's probably the only character so far (both from Cosmic Eclipse and VMAX Climax) that has absolutely no character or expression going on in his face or his stance.

Also, did anyone notice that the set now extends up to 254 lol. Octillery CHR starts at 191 (but there has to be a couple grass Pokemon before it) and Blaziken, is at 216 a CSR, with probably a couple ahead of it. Not complaining about getting more character art, but whilst the CE ones only numbered 12 and were relatively easy to pull, we've now got about 22-24 of the same rarity and then at least another 38-40 on top of that.

They can't even print enough product without having lotteries in Japan and yet they keep pumping out sets with dozens of basically secret rares (full arts are SR). Are they really that out of touch?

Morty is copying Dusknoir's hand gesture to summon spirit fire. Very cute

So Alcremie certainly has the makings of a good deck. Turn 1 you have the abilities of Zacian V (Psychic) and Leafeon V to get off an attachment for that ever important 40 extra damage. We have 8 different types of energy in standard, so that means it maxes out at 330.

If you can setup properly: You have 3 attachments for your first 2 turns (2 manual and 1 from Zacian/Leafeon) or 5 attachments if you go second and get Cafe Master in hand (2 manual and 3 from Cafe Master) which can ramp up if you are able to consistently keep getting Cafe Masters in hand. Let's say you get your 3 attachments from Leafeon and manual and are able to evolve your Alcremie for Cafe Master. That right there is 6 energy on field which is 250 damage, which OHKOs all V in format and OHKOs psychic-weak Pokemon like Urshifu Rapid Strike VMAX. As long as you're able to get off 2 Cafe Masters (which should exhaust almost your entire energy in deck accounting for manual attachments) you should be able to consistently get off KOs. You can even use Raihan to recover energy after a KO and get Energy Retrieval in hand. Ideally they should only be getting rid of 2 energies on your side with each KO. Your only problem is bench snipe, but fortunately you can hit weakness against the most prominent bench sniper in format.
