I don't think this GX represents the ramp too much. It's actually good to have a FIVE Energy attack have some real meat to it's damage on top of that for the second attack you HAVE to be asleep for it to deal damage. You have to either fail both your asleep checks or have a combo set up with as WastedSkyPirate has pointed out Hypno. No one's going to actively put Snorlax to sleep but I so badly want to see someone put a Pokemon to sleep then have Snorlax get Ninja Boy in and flatten something.I suppose this confirms that GX are simply a powercreep to EX. What an excitement... Because actually caring about card design was to much for them.
Wait, break as in ruin or break as in make it broken? At least I knew you didn't mean Pokémon BREAK. XD
I'll have to think about Snorlax GX. I mean, I don't really care for the GX mechanic, plus we'll see if it ends up being too good or not good enough. The 190 HP seems low.
Yes really: Snorlax doesn't have the highest HP in the video games, but I thought it had one of the better HP/DEF/S.DEF combinations, being one of the highest for HP (even after all this time still in the Top 10 for it), a good Defense and a solid Special Defense. No time to double check that stuff now though. XD
I think it's a coincidence that we have Snorlax GX revealed not long after the Snorlax Z move reveal.
Though seeing as these will probs be the new EXs, I hope they release the rest of the Megas as EXs in some form. If EXs still exist in the SM era, then there'd be no worry.
They may make the rest of the Mega Pokemon EX because mega evolved Pokemon cant use Z Moves so I don't think EX Pokemon are going anywhere. If this is true then I wonder how they will decide what non legendary Pokemon gets a GX card.
