Don't like this post or you'll be agreeing that I'm bad at math.
You forgot to quote yourself so it looks like you are mumbling to yourself over and over to resist the urge to share what you think.

Can you show me an example? Also, stay on this thread's topic while doing it or you'll make a bad impression. Clefairy.

Don't think about how bad it is. Don't think about how bad it is. Don't think about how bad it is. Don't think about how bad it is.

This is a good opportunity to ask this: what is everyone's favourite eeveelution?

The anime/Pikachu brainwashed me into becoming an electric type lover, so it's Jolteon! :lol: I used to reeeally love Umbreon, though. Vaporeon is my favorite to draw.

i don't really have a favorite, but zules mentioning umbreon made me think of this (and then spend most of an hour drawing it):

I suppose I should give mine as I posed the question: Funnily enough, it happens to be Umbreon, but I used to like Jolteon.

My favorite is something MANLY and MACHO, like FLAREON!

... Sylveon.

Fun fact: Prior to generation 4, Flareon was one of (in terms of battle strength) worst eeveelutions. This was because although it had a good attack stat, it couldn't use it as effectively because all fire type moves were considered Special (non-physical). It was the only eeveelution that had this problem.

I had the most fun ever with a new Pokémon card deck I made last night, playing against @Zules' heckin' stronk Munna/Musharna/Weepinbell/Ninetales status deck.

Essentially, I put together a hit squad.
5584


First, THE BOSS:
5585

I'm guessing most of you haven't heard of this dude before. Lemme tell ya, that's just how he likes it. He's a conniving, sneaky sonnuvagun. That ability of his kept Zules' crew totally locked down, unable to draw any energy long enough for the rest of his hit squad to do their dirty work. He even got a KO of his own with a Psychic-energy boosted Brainwave, and he narrowly avoided dying to Musharna's Super Hypnoblast with a clutch sequence of coin flips. He'll do whatever it takes to get the job done.

Second, THE FIRING SQUAD:
5586
swsh1-42_hires.png

Man, these guys are way too good for common Basic Pokémon. Aqua Shower can do anywhere from 10-60 total damage per turn (+10 for each bench Pokémon), guaranteed, for only 1 water energy. I had Pinchy McGee set up and ready to spray on my first turn, and he tag-teamed with his brother to keep all of Zules' Pokémon softened up for easy kills later.

Third, THE DECOY:
5587

Come on, this guy is adorable. Who would suspect him of being any kind of real threat? While he sits in and soaks up damage for the team, he's drawing cards to use as ammunition for the rest of the squad. Then, when he's loaded up with damage counters, he Flails on the way out for a hefty chunk of HP from whatever goon he's facing. He works for cheap, too, energy-wise.

Fourth, THE ASSASSIN:
5588

Less popular than he should be. Once Wasabi takes the field, his Shady Dealings can help him totally rework the situation in his favor, setting up for a series of well-placed Aqua Bullets for that juicy Double Snipe (KO'ing two Pokémon with one bullet).

Fifth, THE SMOOTH NEGOTIATOR:
5589

A ghost in the form of literal tea, haunting a teacup. What's not to love here? This friendly fella works well together with Boss Beetster's ability that lets him peek at, and rearrange, the top three cards of the opponent's deck. Sometimes, you just gotta give the enemy what's coming to them, you know? He also shatters quite easily, making him perfect for a Lucky Egg suicide hatch.

Sixth, THE CLEANUP:
5590

Get pekt, get rekt. If Pinchy McGees I & II have done their job properly, nobody on the enemy team is safe from this disarmingly cute beast. He comes in to finish what others have started, and he doesn't leave any leftovers.

And, the heart and soul of the operation...
5591

Not a Pokémon, but certainly a badass chick nonetheless. Consider her this squad's kingpin. That ability to swap out the opponent's entire hand is indispensable. She certainly isn't underrated in the TCG meta, but she's also not a Pokémon, so she gets an honorable mention here.


All in all, super fun deck, 10/10, would play again :approve:
