    I forgot about alola ninetails but to be fair, it does nothing but set up aura veil. It's almost never used.

    There's also Persian but it's basically a parting shot only poke.

    Marowak and Muk on the other hand see some usage.

    All the hype over all the Sun and Moon cards...and quietly, Tauros GX proves to be the best of them all. Played in damn near every deck now.

    That would have been one of, if not the scrubbiest ban that place has EVER done.

    Oh see, when I talk about Tauros no one says a word, but I talk about a potential ban and people come running!

    So I found out this sexy beast of a card exists in reverse foil too. It's a legit card too. And just for fun let's see who on srk without google/etc can guess the set name it comes from?

    About $33.50 before shipping. I got two of those team rocket decks. Wanted it really fast so payed $15 shipping for both from japan. Just really really happy there's some new team rocket cards and didn't want to wait longer. Been a team rocket fan since what 1998/1999?

    Welp, don't get too hype about those FA reprints like that Shaymin you saw. Extremely high chance we aren't getting them.

    It's in a big reprint set in Japan called Best of XY which is 188 cards strong. I don't see them releasing a set that big over here, especially since the last reprint set of its kind also never got released here, they only brought the 4 new cards from the set over (Beedrill, Mega Beedrill, his Spirit Link, Wobuffet BREAK).

    I stringly believe we re getting a premium trainer collection for all the Fa trainers. Especially since we re getting Fa versions of cards we didnt have before. They might omit blacksmith, that card would make Volcanion op.

    For sure i can see them not reprinting Shaymin, hopefully we do get that yveltal!! I want it so bad

    The pokemon card game will forever do stupid shit. Hate a card and want it rotated? Sure. Then they just bring in something else broken to replace it. That cycle will continue forever in the tcg. It's the gimmick. Those full art trainers should have all been in the set they first came in. They held back a MASSIVE amount of cards from sets on purpose to sell in those boxes. Mew fossil was in the japan set but not in english. They made it a non and holo promo in the usa. A example they've been doing this for what 18+ years now in the usa.

    So just to be 100% clear on Isle Evelup since we were talking about it...

    If I have a level 80 Mesprit and put it into Isle Evelup, it's not magically going to learn new moves, right? Mesprit learns its last move at level 76, so I don't have anything to worry about re: leveling it up in Poke Pelago?

    Once they've learned all their moves, you're good.

    There was also a patch released this week that fixes shenanigans on Isle Evelup.

    Unfortunately, that same patch still corrupts saved battle videos. You'd think they would at least notify us that this problem wasn't fixed when it was brought to their attention in the first update, but NOOO!

    If Double Dragon is rotated: Still get Dark Energy Seismatoad for Standard, fuck us.

    If it ISN'T rotated (or gets reprinted): Get absurdly stupid Seismatoad along with Giratina.

    Only bright side is that unless you go really deep, really hard to get him going Turn 1.

    When are the updated releases for Sun/Moon coming out? I want to start a new file and build another team.

    In my last run, I overused Happy Hour Snorlax too much for $$$ but I didn't enjoy it. I want to build a more offensive team like Salazzle and A-Marowak, I might hop back on Showdown to test some stuff too


    I'm sorry. Humor me!!
