Ninetales should see play because ditto prism is a thing, and cake pop has room for techs
Heh? It’s not Alolan this time?
Oopsie, you commented on the wrong post
I glad we finally got a Fire Vulpix line again
So this is the first non-Alolan Pokémon we've gotten in the SM Series that has an Alolan form?
Nope! We got a regular Persian in Burning Shadows
No hiding on the bench anymore. With Ninetales....
NOTHING CAN ESCAPE THE KILLER CLOWN!
I'm always a fan of bench/active switching manipulation effects so I can dig Ninetales.
Dragonite appears really good. I feel like it would in theory be interesting with virizion as you could string trainers and utilize Virizion's GX attack if you ever needed the bench space for something else.
A new story has just been posted to PokéBeach's front page:
Pidgey, Pidgeotto and Pidgeot Revealed from 'SM9'!
Posts you make after this point will immediately appear on the front page and vice versa. Discuss!
I smell some Pidgeotto/Marcago synergy here.
Also this is better than A-Sandslash "draw one card" ability so Unown HAND decks have more options
Edit: Elm can even grab the Pidgeotto line which makes it more swell for a bench sitter
With the reveal of the Pidgey line, so it appears Tag Teams take priority over dex order.
I wonder if Pidgey #2 will have 60HP, that'd be funny sharing the same health as its evolution.
Too bad Pidgeotto is getting it's Base Set HP.. on the other hand, Elm can find this sibling
Uhhh, I'm not too sure about Magcargo+Pidgeotto. Two otherwise useless stage 1 bench sitters...I mean, what deck can afford/needs this exactly?
Pidgiot could really mess with stage 2 decks
We don't know that there will be another pidgey
Low HP is a problem, but it gives unlimited access for Elm to both Basic and Stage 1 (so you evolve straight the next turn).
Talking about the card, I repeat, 60 HP is a problem (easily destroyed by damage spread decks and similar); but also, one free Acro Bike every turn is not something to undersee. That's REALLY interesting, has synergy with some popular decks, and is useful so everyone.
