    It's 160 only if its owner's stadium is in play. Same deal as UNB Dugtrio, though this seems to be a sort of bigger version of that. Owner's stadium effects are strictly worse than any stadium effects like REC Garbodor. But these are still strictly better than those 'your stadium on your opponent's turn' effects like the old FCO Barbaracle (first one of those that came to mind, lol). B/c at least it's sth that you only need on your turn, so it doesn't matter how many counter stadiums the opponent plays as long as you can consistently counter their counter stadium w/ your own whenever you want to attack w/ Terrak.

    terrakion is basically the eternatus killer
    the wording matters because it might be one of them "if there's any stadium in play"
    reguardless chaotic swell, dojo whatever and vitality band and bam 340-360
    better then sandaconda v that it gives 1 less prize

    I just realized that reshi-krom is now broken with the new voltorb, and add welder and turbo patch to that... that is scary

    • Talonflame V - a Dedenne for the first player because players going first on their firstbturn gets some disadvantages. RRC - 160 very vanilla. 3-4
    • Circhester Bath - getting big basics some extra buff. 3-4

    As always, Talonflame goes fast.

    Hero's Bath is weirdly effective for Tag Teams, when so many other cards are straight-up anti-GX.

    Talonflame seems like it might be ok as a one-off in fire decks. Heroes bath is cool, might se play in decks like Lucmetal-Zacian or ADP Zacian.

    So please tell me why basics are still getting more tools and stages 1s and 2s are still being shoved to the curb.

    Can't say I agree with even more Basic support... However, dropping this with a Cape'd Dubwool V late game will make a great, hard hitting final wall that your opponent will have to deal with, requiring 310 damage to OHKO. This doesn't apply to ADPZ of course, they can just gust up Dedenne/Crobat/Eldegoss and take 3 prizes for game.

    So, Hero's Bath plus Lucario Melmetal GX Attack plus Zamazenta Sturdy Steel Ability plus whatever is still Standard, since metal frying pan is out, means that specific Zamazenta will take minimum 70 less damage from attacks. Of course, your opponent's basics will take 20 less, but your opponent will have difficulty taking down your Zamazenta. What other cards are there that helps?

    Am I the only one who thinks all this "cards that absolutely negate or f*** up entire niches of other cards" that seems to have clogged up the game more and more over the years is cheap and uninteresting as a design philosophy?

    (I know the cards spoiled have nothing to do with this, the topic came to mind from some of the comments)

    Who wants to bet when they translate it eventually that it will be hero's sauna or something lame like that

    Enjoying the fact that more and more V cards are featuring more than just art by 5ban Graphics.

    Allow me to make an edit:

    Each Stage 2 Pokemon in play takes 50 less damage from their opponent’s Pokemon V's attacks.

    Ah yes. Much better.
