    Will vespiqueen be in the same format as parallel? I'm not seeing bench hate in the next few sets

    I agree...And with two Decidueye and a choice band you could get to the 190 damage. I think possibly adding in Tapu Koko for some early spread could be useful as well...thus easily hitting for the numbers with a one prize attacker.

    Net Ball is like a replacement for Nest Ball in Grass decks, I think it’ll be really good in VikaBulu, since it seeks out your Grubbin and your Tapu Bulus early on, then finds that 1 Grass Energy for your attachments.

    Works in Genesect/Venusaur too, since it does the same thing (I’m not saying the deck is good, it’s a rogue deck of course it’s not meta-deck-quality™).

    Too bad it doesn’t work more like Dive Ball.

    And Vespiquen just looks like filler for the set.

    I actually really like the Vespiquen art. It looks like it's coming to get you.

    I don't mind Net Ball at all, there's been times where I missed that one energy for my Tapu Bulu deck so this really helps.

    Xerneas, why are your SM cards alwas so mediocre...still, this is probably the best new Xerneas card so far.

    • Keokeo (Based on Alolan Vulpix's Sun Dex entry) - Still Beacon one is the best option. You're playing Fairy Ninetales anyway. This make sense.
    • Xerneas Prism Star - If we have abilities like this similar to Koko GX, it must have the atk that does X damage times the no of energy attached to this Pokemon. Not this. Although it OHKO Rayquaza and UN neglecting the weakness of both Pokémon using Choice Band. Also KOs Buzzwole. About the first statement, so that if Xerneas suck 10 Y energy to it, it won't be a waste not this atk that costs 3 Y energy. 3-4 Geodudes

    Xerneas GX had to have been with this attack and ability, not a prism star </3

    Xerneas Break is still the best xerneas

    That means in a dark-type themed set, we'll expect Yveltal Prism Star? #XYVibes

    Xerneas Prism looks like an okay non-GX attacker. The ability to move energy makes it a pretty fast and great for a planned Guzma KO. Would go well with Alolan Ninetales GX (Fairy) since you can put spread damage around the field and just finish everything off with Xerneas Prism. 30 bench damage + 190 choice banded = 220, which takes care of basically everything Basic & Stage 1 relevant.

    Beacon Vulpix is still the better Vulplix in my opinion. Since it takes 0 energy to attack, it's usually okay to attach an energy to it to retreat it. Perhaps running a 2/2 split between beacon and free retreat wouldn't be a bad idea just so that you could have a Guzma pivot in fairy decks, just like how the classic Alolan Ninetales GX used to use Tapu Koko promo as a Guzma pivot.

    That being said, perhaps still just use Tapu Koko as a Guzma pivot with access to flying flip.

    Beacon Vulpix is still the best to me but this one is now a close second. Not sure if I like that Xernas PS yet, maybe a good way to use Max Potion on your Gardevoir or Ninetales.

    Xerneas Prism Star is an excellent card. It hits the same number as Solgaleo Prism Star and Giratina Prism Star at a lower cost. This willl be an automatic addition to fairy decks for sure. Fairy seems to get some decent non-GX attackers in this set.

    Alolan Vulpix with Beacon is still better but this one is decent too and sure has the best art thus far.

    Alolan Vulpix - would be pretty good if its other print wasn't the best evolving basic in the game. ●●○○○

    Xerneas Prism Star - Evolutions Arcanine, but it's a basic and actually has good maths. Will be played in EVERY fairy deck that isn't mill. ●●●●○

    Still waiting on a new Pidgey card but for the sake of argument, A.Vulpix line has has what, four new cards and Toucannon hasn't has one since launch. They treat bird Pokemon so badly.
