Correct me if I am wrong, but the lightning weakness shouldn't be a problem.Lightning GX attacks will do nothing to it, and Zapdos attack doesn't apply weakness or resistance. Celesteela's energy requirements allow it to be an addition to any deck that is worried about PikaRom.

It matters because Tapu-Koko-GX, Zeraora-GX and Pikarom can KO this for 2 energy with their non-GX attacks. Celesteela only protects you from GX-attacks, not attacks of GX pokemon. And you can just move it onto the bench with Guzma and its ability stops working anyway.

Beast bringer will be absolutely busted in Blacephalon decks, you can take 3 Prizes on an easy GX knockout, or 4 on a tag team and you only really have to take 1 KO after that no matter what. Imagine guzzlord in turbo dark decks once this set drops. scary![/QUOTE

The only thing with running beast bringer in blacephalon is that you can’t gx turn one or beast ringer doesn’t work. You have the save the gx for the last prize.

I think celesteela will be really good in malamar...the deck is just begging for an early game consistency boost. If you play heavy switch outs it would be pretty simple to gx early if you can’t pull off an early attack. Some nice synergy moving energy to the back as well, can throw a metal on it early and move it to power up an ultra Necrozma later!

That's what I was thinking too... except Zapdos + choice band OHKO's it. :-(

Rules based question -- for Celesteela's GX attack, does this indicate you can know what the prize cards are, assuming that you have somehow been able to order them in your deck prior to the attack? Could make an interesting Jirachi prism star/greedy dice deck.....

Going off my previous example -- you play mallow, then do the GX attack - could I know which of my face down prize cards is now Jirachi prism star?

Im loving this set, it's wonderful to see some non staple Pokemon get GXs (Honchrkow, Whimsicott, Persian, etc).
They need to grow a spine and start making Abra, Kadabra and Alakazam cards again
I totally agree, and then Uri Geller wonders why Kadabra and Pokémon fans alike disrespect him.

Yeah I mean how dare a guy be annoyed that a company created an unauthorized parody of him and then made a collectible card that was literally named "Evil Uri Geller," the man is just so UNREASONABLE!!! :confused:

The attack doesn't specify that you need to shuffle the prize cards (can't imagine why you would need to).

So yeah, you would simply put the prize cards out the way you want. If you just so happen to know what those cards are, the game doesn't care.
