    It's a holo rare. Walilord has had 200 or more HP for a while now as Stage 1.
    Snorlax's 210 for TAE isn't that impressive, when some regular holo rares can easily pull off 300+ damage (thanks Welder).

    The dynamax selection are pretty weird and i honestly don't like it.

    So the theory about lined up releases is dead, we're not getting V-Rising the same day as the number of released V pokemon is 17.

    10 damage has more significance than you think. It doesn't matter how much health Pokemon have now a days. There will be some games where you are 10 damage short of knocking out a big threat on your opponent's field or heck to win the game. That has happened to me many times.

    Still no FAIRY type Pokemon. Also no FAIRY type promo's... I know there FAIRY energy was among the new designed energies, but it is very strange that that there is no fairy Pokemon in the SWSH era yet. And no dragon type Pokemon so far... (but that is explainable, since dragon type Pokemon show up later in the game).

    Frosmoth is a mandatory 2-2 of in any water deck. Makes KarpLord a viable attacker again. About time they gave water pokemon some love again. Might use it with Lapras V/V-Max though.

    Gengar with Wobuffet V and Giratina could be fun to play around with.

    2 fun combos i'm seeing are

    Wobuffet V and Gengar
    siphon all of your damage onto wobuffet then use step back to hit 210 for 2 energy and completely heal it up

    Toarkoal V and Oranguru
    switch a fire energy from your hand with the top card of your deck and hit 180 with a welder + attachment
    (to be fair this one isn't great but its the only use I could come up with for the new oranguru)

    These are outliers - and they're not statistically important specifically because they're outliers. Objectively speaking, 10 damage on a 150 HP Pokemon is way more significant than 10 damage on a 300 HP Pokemon.

    Will they amend the special Juniper/Sycamore rule to include Magnolia?

    The HP are rising, but attacks don't really increase. The basics/simple stage 1s doing 10 for 1 Energy, or 20-30 for 2-3 Energies are still too much and feel worse and worse with every generation, because these attacks are baiscally the same as 20 years ago, while HP have doubled to tripled.
    Nobody will even use 3 Energies to do 50 damage, so no use of a 3-Energy attack on simple basics and you could just replace it by an ability.

    Barely outliers, they are just incredibly common at the time. ADP needs a 10 damage tick to kill a Blacephalon and Ultra Necrozma GX, ReshiZekrom is just 10 short of OHKOing ADP, etc.
    Even if 10 damage doesn't appear important at the end of the day, stuff like PlusPower, Choice Band, etc will be ran because they mean the difference between a game loss and a win a ton of times.

    Toarkoal-V and this new Oranguru seem like they could be a very good combo. If you have a fire energy in your hand, Oranguru can put it at the top of your deck so Torkoal can discard it to deal 180. Same thing with Sabelye-V and the G-Zigzagoon line.
    To be fair, the early XY era did have a lot of weird choices. Scarmory, Emolga, and Seismetoad are all pretty odd choices to get EXes.

    Well it seems a reoccurring trait of these VMAX cards will be trying to get energy on them as quick as possibles. VMAX Lapras with Frosmoth could be fun, as it's essentially brought back deluge.

    Man, I hope everyone's league has a chill proxy rule or we're gonna be playing our full arts in our decks if any of the VMax cards become meta.

    Final translation update:
    -Galarian Stunfisk: Steel Trap > Snap Trap, its signature move in the games
    -Qwilfish: Poison Barb > Poison Point, one of its abilities in the games; Venom Shock > Venoshock, a move it learns in the games

    Oh totally, pretty much every era (BW aside up until Legendary Treasures given that it was Almost all legendaries, which I’m not knocking at all of course, Ive always said BW is my favorite TCG era) has its oddballs. It was a bit few and far between, of course, but it definitely started to ramp up little by little over time, in later Sun and Moon especially, and more so even now, I’d say.

    I like Aurora energy because in expanded we can have 3 all Type energy now (Prism, Rainbow, Aurora).
