Silvally in endgame confirmed
1 colorless energy is trash. Even if it can't get hammered it likely won't even provide you energy! It's really only Zoro that could use this. Also when they hammer it they put it in your hand! It still unattaches!
Silvally would be good if we memory's were for non GX silvs as well. It does 2 shot damage for expensive energy. (Even with TCE)
Trust me, Recycle Energy is anything but trash.
This is going to make ZoroControl at Worlds mirrors either unbearable or a Zoroark slugfest.
And yes, it does unattach, but this gives decks that can heavily lean on it extended longevity for late game. Which is especially crazy if the deck has an explosive early and mid-game, but struggles late game. Recycle Energy can probably fix that issue.
Unfortunately, the Memory cards only work for Silvally GX, not regular. We’ve seen this attack also on Machamp GRI, and we saw how well that worked. It’s not too good, but it can do 170 for a DCE in a pinch.
Recycle Energy, looks cool. That’d go well in Gardevoir GX decks.
Oh my god yes! This card is gonna make so many lock decks possible!
Silvally could be a good counter to PikaRom after it uses Tag Bolt GX and takes 4-5 prizes. doing 230-280 damage. Able to KO a PikaRom. Just got to be careful with the prize trade.
Also recycle energy...I don;t have much though on what this could be useful for. Maybe decks that go up against Stall decks and such.
I wonder if we'll get a Stadium card that putd itself into your hand from being discarded.
Recycle energy could be used to pay retreat for free essentially, especially with the new Porygon Z.
burning energy looks really weird now
In all seriousness I am super down for something that's hard to get rid of.
U just said what i was about to write. Recycle energy means 1 cost now is a ''technical'' zero, while 2 cost retreats can be satisfied with Skate (zorowhat??). Porygon Z will shine next months, I've no doubts about it. It will open some nice loops, for example, having your hypothetical big hitter with 2 recycles and 1DCE, and no problems if you lose it coz energies are going to come back to you anyways... Of course this scenario gets better at late game, when you probably would have drawn 3 or 4 recycles.
Recycle energy could be used like propogation exeggcute in zororark but I don't see any other purpose.
Porygon z will be a tier 3 deck at best and may prove itself to be too clunky, probable one of the worst decks coming from unbroken bonds
It would need some additional help I supsect, but I wonder how feasible Air Slash / TCE will be as an early game quick 120. Enough to counter Zapdos, say (where 130 is hard to get to for Zapdos, but on the other side 120 is enough to KO it).
Probably depends on whether TCE has other uses, or not, as I guess having 8 cards or more [4 TCE, 2 Silvally/Null] to make this work is too much just as a tech (even if it's a fairly useful tech).
From play would probably exclude hand so must be discarded from the bench or active
have you for gotten about Porygon z GX
To all the people hatting on Recycle Energy I just thought of a deck Porygon z GX plus Porygon z with crazy code and in expanded we have Max potion so all energy's(provided they are Recycle Energy's) go right back to your hand no imagine a broad with say two Porygon z GXs and one Porygon z with crazy code and three Recycle Energy you have free retreat,and can heal for 80 with Porygon z GXs ability, and say you also have Max potion you can fully heal any of your Porygon z and Porygon z GXs for free energy or no energy(provided they are Recycle Energy).
Actually, there is a Retro Energy...
It can't be used like Propagation Exeggcute. Recycle Energy only returns to the hand from the discard if it was in play i.e. attached to a pokémon.
With the crazy code porygon, you can use recycle energy with pokemon that have to discard energy.
For example, the water alolan ninetales GX.
The Silvally is a good card for Malamar decks.
130 health, 120 damage second attack which is similar to Giratina, then it's first attack is a great counter attack for the big GX tag team attacks.
(like counter attack Buzz-Pheromosa GX attack)
