i agree with this, it sucks
not really. the only good one rn is obstagoon.
I hate that horn being a thing.
It just adds more randomness into the game did not need to exist.
Oh, you are holding the switch? Here, stamp to 2, now you have a 50/50 chance of winning have fun.
Stamp and N can be played around but this along with stamp just seems hideous.
The game is already too luck-based with super scoop up and crushing hammer and stadium nav and constant marnie.
And then that turbo patch is coming, too.
It is not healthy, IMO, to have cards like these in the game.
Budget "welder every turn" weakness deck for new players. I see what you did here TPCI...
Sorry I didn't make that clear, I edited my original post to try to clarify the confusion based on your comment, but yeah in the end it doesn't really matter because in standard almost every deck plays 4 switch and a lot of decks play 2-4 scoop up nets on top of that. So easy to get out of confusion. In Expanded no one plays Switch, only Guzma and VS Seeker, so hypnotoxic laser has much more power.
Why would you get to Marnie’s when you use one it would just put the other one back into your deck
True, I was just making comparison to cards like "Looker's Whistle".
Stage 2's are inherently less consistent. Consistency isn't really an issue with Obstagoon because if you miss it turn 2, who cares. Not the case with Blaziken when it's I'm assuming your main attacker.
Just a heads up my fellow Pokemon Community, Target is having a Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off, and YES, EVEN THE NEW BATTLE DECKS!!
Hopefully the link works. Target restocked their online PikaRom decks and I ordered 17 times (34 boxes in total, for Basically $21 after tax, each, Shipped. I didn't buy them all as I didn't want to be a jerk to those wanting the decks as well. They should restock tomorrow, so be on the lookout as the Promo can be used over and over again. Peace.
Wish something like what happened with Kadabra happens with that monkey trio.
I would say stage 2s are as consistent as they've been in a long time. Issue though is that the majority of them are just bad attackers even without the power difference between Vs and stage 2s. For them to be "good" they have to some gimmick ability/attack...aka Obstagoon
A new story has just been posted to PokéBeach's front page:
Kangaskhan, Mountainous Smoke from 'Infinity Zone!'
Posts you make after this point will immediately appear on the front page and vice versa. Discuss!
That item card could be a great disruptor
Kangaskhan is meh, we’ve seen it before, mountainous smoke is kinda cool.
Kangaskhan will be decent in Theme decks (if it makes it). A basic that can swing 120 for 2 energies is pretty good. KOs Thundurus and Rapidash.
Mountanious Smoke looks nice in control decks but I amnot sure whether it is better than current alternatives such as Giant Bomb and Cursed Shovel.
Mountainous Smoke is just the Coronavirus Air of the Pokemon world, change my mind.
Kangaskhan - ehh. 2
Smoke Stick - Great for Prize denial. Its just basically discar one of your opponent's prize cards. If Jirachi * is legal once this came out, this will hate it. Anyways, it can be fit in some decks. (Mill decks are ded) But, Tool Scrapper saw play. As long Tool Scrapper is there, Tools like this will be short lived. 3-4
Ah yes, Kawayoo, my favourite TGC artist...
Mountainous smoke isn't bad at all. I could see this being played in decks with robo substitute or mill/disruption decks.
What's wrong with Kawayoo? He's been one of my favorite mainstays since I've started some years back.
