    I actually like A. Raticate-GX. It's not amazing or anything, but due to the GX attack it's not a bad utillity card. Being able to do 110 (CB) for 0 energy is also good I'd say. Second attack is obviously bad. Since fighting will be nerfed after rotation the weakness doesn't matter that much imo. It's still going to be a bad weakness though. But A. Raticate could be paired with the correct 1 energy attacker depending on whether Buzzwole remains the top 1 fighting deck or if it gets replaced by Zygarde.

    I don't think there is any reason to play A. Raticate in Expanded.

    Could always pair it with metal. discard 2 metal energys from hand. Then my cornet them back to hit 110 every turn. Not great . Beast box doea a out sane damage. Both stage 1. Each has its ups and downs. But the fighting weakness is a ouch. Then what to pair with metal wise hmm???

    I just realized that the Rat could do 180 for 2 with a Band... Fliptini is a thing too.

    Yes 1 dark 1 dcolorless. Does hit 180 with choice but flipping 1 coin if tails then using victini to flip once more.. better ways to hit 180

    I wish the tcg would adhere more to the games when it comes to hp. Latias is the bulky one in the games where as latios is the fast attacker.
    Of course I'm still salty darkrai gets huge hp amounts and giratina EX had 170

    I just bought a Japanese one a month ago, because I thought it will never be released in English. But it's not too bad. I might still not get it from opening Celestial Storm boosters (I'm just a collector at the moment).

    Latias and Latios both confirm Rayquaza to be the 109th card. This would mean that for all the Colorless Pokémon to be in the set (numbered 110 through 124) from both Charisma of the Wrecked Sky and Champion Road sets, the former of the two sets would have to lose one of the two Whismur cards. Failing that, Ho-Oh would be carried over to the November set, a move that might not go down well with fans. The last time Nintendo done this was with both the EX Deoxys and the EX Legend Maker sets in order to promote Movie's 7 and 8.

    So if Celestial Storm is only having 11 GX cards, does that mean we're losing Salamence? It was mentioned to be in Dragon Storm...

    Alolan Raticate seems great as a Choice Banded counter to Dawn Wings within a Malamar deck to bop the opposing DW and discard some psychic energies in the process

    Raticate might be splashable into a lot of decks just for ohko'ing dwNecrozma for no energy. Obviously, the [email protected] / Rayquaza Synergy is disgusting- potentially more disgusting than Baby Buzz and Diancie.

    But it’s fast. It can get set up turn 1 in Expanded, provided Dark Patch and Wally.
    Step 1: Go Second
    Step 2: Dank Patch to benched Rat
    Step 3: Switch Rat from Active (has free retreat in SUM) to the Bench, move the energy one to Active
    Step 4: Wally to Rat GX
    Step 5: Attach DCE to Rat GX
    Step 6: Attach C-Band
    Step 7: As your opponent questions how the Rat could be so good, hit for 180.

    Step 8: Got tails and attack miss
    Step 9: Fliptini effect
    Step 10: Tails again
    Step 11: Buzzwole + Choice Band + Diance + Beast Energy
    Step 12: Rat Gx die

    At least thats me

    YES!!! Finally, I get the fat rat which I've literally been waiting months for and can make a rotoms deck. Even better, acrobike is here to help as well. Super stocked, Fat rat I'm chasing you.
