    Yay, lightning Buzzwole with basically free retreat minus Diancie. This was obviously meant to be playable, either as a one-of tech for stuff like Bulu/Ray-GX or as a quad.

    I'm calling it, Deoxys GX for a speed-themed set.

    This is the kind of support that Loghtning decks need.

    Build in Float Stone for everyone PLUS massive Energy acceleration, a decent attack, and the magical 190 HP to boot.

    It's ability is something that will be on everyones radar post-rotation as we lose Float Stone and it's either this or Silvally GX that can provide some free retreat shenanigans outside of Psychic builds.

    That said, it'll be good for Rayquaza decks post-rotation. However, I think they are too slow

    Should help out the new Rayquaza gx coming out and you don't have to sacrifice it unlike Electrode gx to get those energies and you can attach to however you want.

    Instantly going in Rayquaza GX. Makes Raichu GX very good as well.

    Basically laughs at Electrode GX in every way (sorry).

    The ability and the GX attack alone make this deck a nice addition to Rayquaza decks post rotation but this card can easily be a deck on its own if we get some Basic attack-based energy acceleration or trainer-based energy acceleration to go along with it.

    I feel like a lot of people are forgetting about Manectric from the same set as Rayquaza? If you are going second you can put down all the Manectrics you can during set up, play lady, attach, attack for 40 and attach 2 more to the bench. When it gets knocked out, you can Zinnia for another 2 onto a Ray, and attach from hand. Thats 6 energy by T2, choice band and thats 210 if you go on the offensive with Ray from then. Thats still not including Storm and Stress, meaning possible of up to 10 energy(if you benched 4 Rays), granted youve also just discarded 12 cards to do that.

    I was just thinking. With SM7 coming out this august, that would mean that SM12 (usually the last TCG set) would come out 15 months after that, being november 2019.

    It only makes sense then that Gen 8 (the real new core game for Switch) arrives late 2019 instead of 2018 because of this.. Right?

    Anyway, Zeraora box looks cool! Hoping for some good artwork.

    SM7a had been rumored to be combined with SM8 while SM7b will be its own mini set. SM7b will focus on Fairy and Psychic Pokémon in addition to Grass Pokémon.
