Oh, now I feel incredibly stupid.
Hope we get Bonsly and Mantyke too. Mantyke hasn't gotten a card in 12 years (and only one English card ever).
We should get Pichu this set too.
I know right
All these new Pokemon... Are not new Pokemon. Giratina is a non GX kartana. Hoopa is weavile but worse... By a lot. Munchlax is a bad oranguru. It's like copying your homework from last year and making it worse.
The first Munchlax card since the DP era. I'm so pleased that they're currently being treated as stand-alone Pokémon (but only because they have no Weakness, no Resistance, but even better, no Retreat Cost), though I personally would release a Trainer card that would allow Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Tyrogue, Smoochum, Elekid, Magby, Azurill, Wynaut, Budew, Chingling, Bonsly, Mine Jr., Happiny, Munchlax and Mantyke to evolve into Pikachu, Clefairy, Jigglypuff, Hitmonlee/Hitmonchan/Hitmontop, Jynx, Electabuzz, Magmar, Marill, Wobbuffet, Roselia, Chimecho, Sudowoodo, Mr. Mime, Chansey, Snorlax and Mantine, respectively.
Are they realeasing this set in English
Probably gets combined with Miracle Twin and Sky Legend for our August set.
I mean honestly they could as damn easily have the condition to allow them to evolve into basic mons, there's plenty of text box left for the condition given how they only have one "attack". This is just outright laziness on TPCi part.
Also for the people that think that this can be used by a stall deck, stall decks specifically go out of their way benching vulnerable mons for more than one turn other than Oddish, why? Because Guzma is an ever present threat, and a Guzma + Tag Bolt Gx play means something important on your end is getting killed, probably the Vileplume plus Munchlax.
All the cards from this set will be released in our as-of-yet unnamed August set.
Here is the unblurred image of Drifblim.
The blurred pictures was such a weird move, why didn't they just reveal the Raichu Tag Team first since they did shortly afterward anyway? lol
I give this boi a fat ehhh
Good to have babies back. They just need some support to have any remote chance of playability. At least the HGSS ones had occasional playability as minor attackers (Tyrogue)/stall (when asleep) or actually as reasonable starters (Cleffa).
It was fun in a tournament back in the day to ask your opponent to please not attack my active Cleffa. "You wouldn't attack a baby, would you?" Never worked, though...
This should have been a non-GX Mawile card
Hoopa can ohko a dawn wings for 1 energy
munchlax is a must have in stall decks
and Giratina is another e hammer.
Finally the meta gets more meta
Man, it would be so cool if they released Baby Pokemon support so that they can become a deck on their own. #BabyToolbox
Ex: A stadium that gives them all the Tails-you-miss ability, a Tool card that grants them an OP attack, etc.
Yeah, as a non-GX, Mawile would actually be pretty decent, both as a tech for its ability and as an attacker.
I really like Hoopa as a way to tech against Giratina LOT. In order for a Malamar player to stream Giratinas, they would need at least 2 Malamars which means Hoopa is doing (10 + 20 + 20 + 20) x 2 = 140 for knock out. And you’re resistant to psychic too. Say you’re playing a Fighting deck in standard but you have no good options for Giratina. This Hoopa may be one of the best Giratina answers in our format.
