The artwork is really good. Is this a new illustrator?
Not quite new! Somewhat new though--they started in Burning Shadows. Here's every English card they've illustrated, up to Cosmic Eclipse.
Utility attacks like these on low HP pokemon that will most likely get knocked out on your opponent's next turn really should just have zero energy cost.
It seems like everyone's hating on this card saying it's bad and all, but especially as a common this is really something you want to pull for prerelease
A card's viability in prerelease really isn't important on the grand scheme of things
Yeah but he wants to play his prerelease kit in tournaments,
Still. 1 Geodude. I changed my mind
I do too. It's only slightly more fun than playing a theme deck.
Don't be a h8'er
No but I’m serious he does.
Correct. This isn’t exactly going to be a staple card of the meta. But out of the 100+ filler cards we get in a set these days, I’d have to propose that this is one of the better ones. At least it has a use somewhere.
Eh this strikes me as one card that will probably be in the theme decks from our May set.
A new story has just been posted to PokéBeach's front page:
Sandaconda V, Galarian Sirfetch'd, Vikavolt, and More, from 'VMAX Rising!'
Posts you make after this point will immediately appear on the front page and vice versa. Discuss!
Twin Energy is such a cool designed card for Standard.
I think, if they want us to throw away piles of old Double Colorless Energy and sell us a new variant, there needs to be a damn good reason. However, I am not sure how I feel about this type of balance yet. It definitely allows them to balance Vs and basics differently, but it won't be that big of a deal with Frostmoths and Welders flying around.
And, to be honest, I enjoyed the format without DCE. DCE didn't bring much complexity to neither deckbuilding nor gameplay, but it added a hell of randomness.
Twin Energy - Unfortunately, it is DCE for Single-Prized Pokemon. Like Counter Energy, it will see play and many decks will take advantage of this. Although again, we don't have DCE,this is the only thing we have. 5 Geodudes
Sandaconda V - Considering that F has poor energy accel, I don't think flat 220 won't be enough to spam. If we exclude that, 220 can be 290 and KOs majority of targets. 4 Geodudes I can't wait for Beyblade Sandconda because if that Sandaconda VMAX is good, this one will be.
Vikavolt - From the paper itself, 60+20x for 3 is ehh on a Stage 2 until UNB Charjabug came in. 3-4 Geodudes
Galarian Sirfetch'd - Air Balloon then spam 180-240 for 3. Actually....yeah 3! 3-4 Geodudes
Milo - Roller Skater or this? Milo will make absolutely pointless unless there some reasons. 3-4 Geodudes
Training Court - Better than Viridian Forest once that rotates? 4-5 Geodudes
Why does the sirfetchd need the galarian naming
Because there might be cards in the future that refer to "Galar" Pokemon for the purposes of searching or scaling damage.
Welcome back, DCE. I’m excited.
I don't think this is pointless. Being able to discard two specific cards you want in your discard pile to then also draw four can be powerful in the right deck. Put metal in the discard for future Metal Saucer-ing and draw 4, oh look a Metal Saucer. Or hey, you just thinned your hand so you can use Silvally GX's Disk Reload
Viridian Forest also lets you discard a card (again, sees a lot of use in decks that want specific things in the discard) and lets you pull out energy from the deck. Training Court only grabs stuff from the discard, so if it's not in there you're kinda SOL. It will indeed see play but I don't think it's better than Viridian Forest.
Sorry to pick on those points, just my two cents.
Sophocles did basically the same thing and it saw zero play so no, Milo is not good, especially now that the "discard hand draw 7" card is also back. The only difference between Sophocles and Milo is that Milo lets you discard only 1 and then draw 2 which is a very underwhelming effect. (With Sophocles you always had to discard 2 and draw 4.)
