    That would work, except Prisim Stars are done. They aren't making any more.

    I think the GX plus means theres an optional additional optional effect

    Mixed feelings about this tbh; I love how Lillie is in the art, but having a standard Tag Team not done by Mitsuhiro Arita really angers my OCD lol and I kinda wish Lunala was more relevant ;_; Can't wait to see the alternate art tho

    I'd like to point out that the GX attack condition says that it prevents effects of attacks onto each of your Pokemon.

    Probably doesn't change the fact that if it gets gusted out of the active then that ability is gone anyway, but that is significantly stronger than only defending self.

    It won't be a reprint of the OG N; we just got reset stamp.

    Oh I don't care about whether he gets reprinted or not (preferably not, I like the price of the old FA where it's at right now.) I'm just saying that N being in a Tag Team with the two is what excites me. I'm sure it'll have the same GX gimmick that Solg/Luna does, so there being a new supporter with him in it also excites me.

    Now, I can't lie, it'd be funny if N got reprinted. It probably won't happen, but it'd be really funny to see that.

    I don't really buy this. There's plenty of attacks that have extra effects for playing Supporter cards (that don't have a + in their Energy requirements). And the + is in the Energy cost, implying there's more effects for having more Energy attached.

    A 270 HP Basic whose attacks do 230 and 200+immunity.

    This is what power creep looks like. Just comes down to how fast a player can load it up.
     
  13. They named the card wrong, it should be solgaleo lunala Lillie and turtle gx

    I don't believe that's accurate. I'd interpret this as putting an effect on the battlefield in general, rather than on a specific Pokémon. I don't think this is removable by any combination of switching, except by attacks that ignore effects or explicitly remove them.

    We'll likely get a ruling before pre-release in any event on this.

    The wording of this effect could mean that gusting can't get around it. It's a blanket effect on all of your Pokemon in play. It could be the same though but that just seems weird to me. It'll probably be ruled as not working if it leaves the active though.

    This looks really good for Malamar, but I'm not sure it'll replace Ultra Necrozma or Dawn Wings. It gives up one more Prize and technically has a lower damage cap than Ultra Necrozma, which can matter for Reshizard. This card just feels like Reshizard 2.0 but weaker because Psychic support isn't quite as good as Fire is right now - but then again, no other type can compare right now. At least it doesn't require awkward Metal Energy like Ultra Necrozma, I guess.

    I'm pretty sure Giratina/Garchomp is going to replace UN as the main attacker in Malamar in the next meta (Worlds and later), so that's the real question. This could possibly replace that, or more likely supplement it. Decks with both GarTina (or is it TinaChomp?) and LunaLeo might be optimal, because it gives you a 230 big hitter for when they're playing tag teams (add in regular Giratina and Spell Tag to get those last 10s), and it gives you an earlier attack (with Linear Attack) plus a cheaper option to OHKO single prizers.

    In any event, I'm not sure you can say psychic support is really worse than fire - between mysterious treasure and, well, Malamar, it's trivial to get it going turn 2. Reshizard will probably have some challenges getting set up post-Kiawe; I played the Green's build and it's very frustrating to play when it doesn't start with a Green's first turn (or the perfect set of Welder/Fiery Flint/etc.) The big advantage Reshizard has is that it can play Green's, which means it can play Counter Catcher of course...

    Staraptor is probably one of my favorite Pokémon, that's why I want a GX for it.
