SM10a \'GG End\' Mini-Set in April

Discussion in 'Pokémon Trading Card Game' started by Water Pokémon Master, Mar 5, 2019.

  1. With the quick skeleton I created yesterday, ChompTina runs a baby Koko or two, which helps against the Lost March matchup. You also make it seem like Lost March has absolutely no setup required, and while that setup is very explosive and not too difficult to get going, it's still incorrect. While Malamar does have a lot of combo pieces required, they aren't hard to get set up, much like Lost March. Prize trading with Giratina isn't impossible. So yes, Ultra Necrozma does have the better matchup against Lost March, but your matchup against 2/3 prize attackers is better than Ultras. Pros and cons.

    Very Interesting. Love that it helps a lot of fighting Decks to be much faster

    Who needs double dragon energy when you can attach a black belt to giratina/garchomp and not use fighting energy.

    • Black Belt - Its a F type Counter Gain. It makes atk even cheaper but sacrificing the fact that you can't use Choice Band. Buzzwole can Jet Punch for free, Garchomp can do 200 for DCE. Marchamp can do atks for FFF maximum (still expensive. Not buying it)
      Hammers is a thing.
      4 Geodudes

    While this is absolutely neat for G & G TTGX, do note that they need more spread damage if they are without choice band to KO other Tag Team GXs.

    With Black Belt, there need to be at least three damage counters on a defending pokémon with 270 HP. With Choice Band, there only needs to be one damage counter.

    So... since this card and the Black Belt from Triumphant apparently have different names in Japanese, but share the same name in English between the item and Trainer class, could you only have up to 4 in any combination of those cards?

    ...I know this only applies to Unlimited, but still... Considering how TCPi usually goes out of their way to avoid printing cards with the exact same name unless it's a reprint, I find this kind of interesting :D

    Nice to see some cards interacting with Tag Team Pokemon, about time it happened.

    I updated my speculation:

    "Creatures has chosen to hide the corner of Drifblim’s artwork because it features something they don’t want revealed yet. To me it looks like it might be Raichu and Alolan Raichu next to each other, which would mean a Raichu & Alolan Raichu-GX is in the set (hence the “Tag Carry” Ability). The colors seem to match with the two Pokemon and I think I even see part of Alolan Raichu’s tail peeking out of the blurred part. But what do you think it could be?"

    A bit wild hypothesis: it could be a new Pokémon from newest generations they didn't revealed yet… but that couldn't happen, could it? :)

    Ohh, how cheeky. The colors do look similar to the color palette of Alolan Raichu. It'd be cooler if it was a gen 8 pokemon though. Plus I really don't want another lightning type TTGX.

    Also, please stop buffing TTGXes. Oh well, guess that can't be avoided.

    • Drifblim - Based on the blurred image, it got to be Raichus. On Drifblim itself, I like this. A 1-of in some TTGX decks since TTGX are having high Retreat. The Basics tho are not worth it. 4-5 Geodudes
    • Tag Switch - 5 Geodudes. TTGX often use the extra effect on their GX atk, but after that, it has excess energy on there. Well, we have Tag Switch and nvr lose more energy again.

    My guess is it would have to be a new Pokemon that will be announced between now and a few months. Right?

    The raichu tag team hint would be a good guess.

    SHTOP BUFFIN’ TE TAG TEAMS!
    Some of these Tag Teams are cancerous enough without you goin’ and givin’ them help (hem hem Gardeon and Celesaur). The fact that it doesn’t even say Basic, and it says 2 is troubling, because Energy Switch from SM Base says 1 Basic, not 2 anything! Tag Teams these days... and just look how much support Lost March got when it came out! Imagine that much support for Tag Teams... it’s almost sickening. And Drifblim, I guess that’s OK, nobody’s going to go and evolve that, so even though it’s really helpful, it comes at a price. Thank you for not having it as a Basic.
    Yes, it’s definitely the Raichu gang. Unless it’s actually just Goomy wearing the duo as a hat...

    That Tag Switch is goofy good with Max Potion being reprint during the same block.

    Would be funny if we got that Machamp back that knocks out anything that's not an evolution.

    Drifblim would have been an alright one-of if it was a basic. IDK I would rather just use the actual card Switch instead.

    Hype for them Raichus tho.

    I like Tag Switch a lot. For one, it helps get a Tag Team's GX attack's extra requirement ready (mainly Tag Bolt and Double Blaze). If the GX attack was already used, it can move away any extra energy to something else.
