Two amounts of water in the same optimist/pessimist glass.
Alolan Raticate GX is just a huge disappointment. It's GX attack could be potentially insane, especially after the rotation of N reducing the amount of easy hand disruption, but everything else about it is mediocre at best. It's first attack is maxed out at 80 damage, only 20 more than it's regular cousin, and any attack that says "flip or does nothing" is automatically awful. Such a waste of a potentially hilarious and fun playstyle.
Seems like a good way to help get a Rotom deck moving if that was your thing.
Salamence GX was confirmed a while back to be in Dragon majesty, instead of Celestial Storm, so we're already losing two Bagon cards and one Shelgon card as a result of that (from the two sets combined, had Salamence GX not been removed, there would've been three Bagon cards and two Shelgon cards).
Raticate is interesting with 0 energy attack...too bad for fighting weakness though.
Dangit, I wanted to go for a magic 4 Bagon pack like a 4 Chespin pack!!!!!!! Booooooo!!
Thank God this putrid rat did not make it into a $20 box.
It explicitly says on the card that it only works once per game.
What it means is that you only get to take one prize card, not four.
Q. If you somehow get 4 Missing Clover back into your hand, can you play them all again a second time to take another prize card?
A. Yes, you can. (Ultra Prism FAQ; Feb 1, 2018 TPCi Rules Team)
Except Ghetsis shuffles back the item cards. Not discards them. Alolan Raticate may have some play in a Rotom themed deck. A rogue standard deck my friend thought up. Probably wont work in expanded. But Alolan Raticate still looks good.
With Dragon Majesty up and coming, i believe that the Latios and Latias Prism Stars will see some play. However stage 1 dragon decks may come back due to Latios Prism Star. 50 dmg for each of your evolved N type pokemon in play. Dragons will have a place in tier lists again. But that's probably just me.
I would try making an item deck based around Alolan Raticate GX
are these latios/latias cards really going to make a big enough impact to accelerate the dragon type garchomp decks?
Alolan Raticate is good
The setup potential with Alohan Ratticate is pretty good.
A new story has just been posted to PokéBeach's front page:
Blaziken-GX, Rayquaza-GX from 'Celestial Storm'
Posts you make after this point will immediately appear on the front page and vice versa. Discuss!
Rayquaza- This is the partner for vikabulu!
how consistently new sets are releasing is crazy. our poor wallets
It’s the same we get every 3 months
In love with that Blaziken art.
Guess I'm playing Rayquaza next format.
