    Audino let's you draw a card once per turn
    Wheesing makes your opponent discard 1 more card when you play Jessie and james
    Magnezone is both electric and metal type and it's attack let's.you put a trainer card from your discard pile into your hand
    Arbok's ability says that if arbok is attacked, then discard 2 random cards from your opponent's hand, it's attack does 50 plus 80 damage if you played Jessie and james during your turn

    Love that new Magnezone. Dual typing of Steel and Electric and it's attack lets you take one trainer (or item, not quite sure) from discard into the hand!

    Set called Sky Legend. Of the flying types in this set, there are:

    Rowlet in Rowlet and Eggs
    Fletchinder
    Talonflame
    The Bird Trio GX
    Hoothoot
    Noctowl
    Fletchling

    So you're telling me, that in SKY LEGEND, there are only seven cards featuring flying types. 7/43 cards, not counting Full Arts, SR's, Trainer cards, etc. (I only took into account Pokemon in this).

    Let's compare to Roaring Skies, shall we?

    Beautifly
    Tropius
    Fletchinder
    Talonflame
    Articuno
    Articuno AT
    Wingull
    Pelipper
    Zapdos
    Thundurus-EX
    Natu
    Natu AT
    Xatu
    Gligar
    Gliscor
    Hawlucha
    Togetic
    Togekiss
    Togekiss AT
    Dragonite
    Dragonite AT
    Altaria
    Salamence
    Rayquaza-EX (Dragon)
    M Rayquaza-EX (Dragon)
    Spearow
    Fearow
    Skarmory
    Taillow
    Swellow
    Swellow AT
    Swablu
    Altaria AT
    Rayquaza-EX
    M Rayquaza-EX (best card ever)
    Pidove
    Tranquill
    Unfezant
    Unfezant AT
    Fletchling

    Not counting Full Arts, Trainers, or SR's, that's 39 out of 82. Just under HALF the Pokemon in this set are flying type.
    See the deal here? Roaring Skies did the flying type theme properly. A mix of both birds AND other flying types, maintaining a Sky theme, whilst also continuing the Hoenn themes that Primal Clash started. If you're doing a themed set, this is how you do it.

    Why is it so hard for them to make appealing sets with coherent themes anymore? It's really more of a minor complaint compared to something like artificial set bloating, but I know that there's people like Crystal Pidgeot who were looking really forward to this set assuming that it was going to be like Roaring Skies but BETTER. I was hoping for that too, but what do we get?

    Another muddled thematic disaster, like all of the recent Sun and Moon sets. <3

    Seems good to me

    These aren't "flying type" but you can find them in the sky:
    Victini has wings and flys
    Froslass floats
    Cyagonal has levitate
    Magnemite line floats
    Koffing line has levitate
    Lake guardians have levitate
    Poipole floats
    Nag has wings
    Silvally can be flying with memory (this one is actually flying type)

    That Lickilicky looks to be very disruptive. A mill/discard/Energy removal attack in one.? With TCE, that's a a massive deal for one energy attachment. not to mention the new supporter can search it and Lickitung out and it has muscle pad to boost its fat health. interested to see where it goes

    That lickilicky is oddly powerful. Crunching ice pick would go well this card. Discard your opponents hand, discard their next top deck so that they have a harder option to get out of it, then get rid of their energy. All for one energy attachment!!! Am I weird to see that's really powerful?

    That Tapu Fini existing is a sign that the designers regretted making Blacephelon-GX in the first place. I mean, it is so obvious a counter card that nearly anyone who knows the meta could notice that! xD

    Look at all those Gen 5 mons. It's a complete disgrace.

    Yep. For the best generation ever, they really don't like representing it. Must be all the negativity it got back in the day.

    It's really nice to know that a lot of people have turned around and grew to like it a lot, but I wish Pokemon would get to representing some more of the gen 5 pokemon who haven't got cards in upwards of 5 or 6 years. Darmanitan, my favorite pokemon, FINALLY getting one in Dragon Majesty (and another in...whatever that set it came in, I lost track with recent sets)was such a good feeling. I hope others get that treatment sooner or later.

    Tapu fini the ultimate Blacephalon Gx counter love it but still hate the fact the Legendary Bird card is weak to lighting so it will never see the light of day, but at least it looks cool.

    I would really like the new Lickilicky disruption abilities if it wasn't a 130 HP stage 1... Yeah with buff padding it's 180, but it's still conditional. The Magnezone... I don't know but I feel it must be useful for something one day. The discard tactics for Weezing and Arbok are funny... Weezing is literally only useful as discard fodder poor thing lol.

    Aside from Flynium Z, and the chubby chaser Pokemaniac, the rest of the set is the usual filler garbage mons without theme or reason to be there... oh well at least we have Miracle Twins to look forward as an actual set with playable cards, and as something that makes Unified Minds actually worth to open... if not, I will probably skip it.

    Also wow, it is really sad that the set's face is KO'd out by a random electric mon on the set with just the help of one additional card, taking 3 prizes for game.
